What is the normal timeline for a new creator like me to begin receiving paying projects on Upwork.

I have submitted sevaral proposals since joing last last month and only one nibble that turned-out to be a kind of time needed  by "bait and switch" .

Is there anything I can do to speed things up and how do I even know that the provider viewed my Proposal?

I was advised to ask here after Tweeting to @Upwork on one of my favorite social media platforms, Twitter.  How transparent must I be in order to attract offers?  Are there any shorcuts and what are these "hacks" I keep hearing about?   Any constructive criticism happily appreciated.

In my opinion your profile looks very professional and genuine.


If I were you I would keep sending 1-2 proposal per day, distributing it during the month and meanwhile I would taking some more tests. Try to apply to jobs that really suit to you and eventually the first one will arrive.

 You cannot know that. You will only be notified if:


  • Your proposal was declined.
  • You were invited to a interview.
