Hello Everybody,

 

Hope you guys are doing great. I have been doing freelancing since 2012 but from the last year I've been not winning any new clients or winning jobs by sending proposals.

 

I want you guys to help me out to see what is wrong with my profile. Please take a look at my profile as a client,

 

Let's suppose you are a client after watching my profile what attracts you to contact me and which part did go you off.

 

Please help my out..

 

Thanks,

Suleman

reading your profile seems a bit you are trying to sell me something. If I'd be a client looking for a designer I'd prefer a more neutral writing style & focus on facts.

Sophie,

 

Thanks for your comment. Can you more specify about Neutral Writing Style and Facts?

You already trying to promise/sell something in your title "designs that wins your customer"

Instead just use your job title "Logo Design & Branding Specialist"

The double hyphen -- does not look esthetic and there's a grammar mistake in the second sentence.

just use the job title, short and catchy! "Logo Design & Branding Specialist."
 

If I am interested in testimonials from other clients, I will have a look at your job history and feedback.

Too many testimonials in your profile give the impression you are trying to sell something.

Nobody likes the feeling the other person is trying to sell them something. More important are your skills.  

the line spacing does not look good, the information on your profile is not well structured.

 

Do not USE so many BIG --  AND then small letters IN THE same sentence and PLEASE please DO NOT use DOUBLE  -- hyphens in any SENTENCE that does not LOOK professional!!!

 

Got the point?

 

Less is more. Create a fresh profile with better formatting. 

 

I am _______ and I offer______.

I have ____ years of experience and my qualifications are________.

 

That's it! Of course, it can have a personal touch, but try to keep it minimalistic
