Create samples before you start applying to work. This means samples for currect posting ?

Hi Preston,

 

I'm new to upwork and I was wondering what you mean by samples.  

 

Are these samples of your work?  If so, how do I get samples if I'm just 

starting  with UPWORK.

 

Thanks,

Steve

Hi Preston.
I'm  a new member at Upwork and have been bidding for about 2 weeks. Unfortunately, none of the inquiries have converted into confirmed orders. I believe I have a good amount of work expereince and am a little miffed by the outcomes of by proposals. I'm wondering what could be going wrong here?

Also, I read in the above thread that one should attach a portfolio in the cover letter?
Is this correct?

I have an extensive list of work attached alongwith my portfolio but have never in the past sent it along with the cover letter. 
Here's a link to my Upwork profile. I'd really appreciate any inputs that you would have to give.
Thanks a lot for your time.

For you, you would include a social media post you created and how much attention/results it got, or a sample of one of your blog posts. As specific to the job you're applying to as possible.
