I am a writer who writes about various earning skills and income strategies in a newsletter.
I joined Upwork in December, and have been submitting proposals.
The thing is I've had one active proposal that my probably client didn't reply to eventually, and from there it's been nothing.
The thing I want to learn about you guys now is the format of a cover letter, profile optimization, and anything.
Any suggestion is appreciated.
Go through this learning path, here is all the tutorial and information for the new on upwork.
I hope this will help you a lot.
Congrats on joining Upwork! Here are a few quick TIPS to get started. Let me know if you have any specific questions. Have an amazing day!
PROFILE: Always complete your Upwork Profile before applying for Jobs. Create a Title and Skills to apply for Jobs to match what Clients are searching for. Use one or two of the Skill keywords in the Title to emphasize what you bring to the table for the Client. Create 3 or 4 short paragraphs in the Summary. If the Summary is too long, most Clients will not read the rest of your Profile; too short then there isn't enough information for a Client to hire. Use all 15 Skills IF they apply. The Skills are used to assist a Client in locating your Profile via search. Add your Portfolio and always use a colorful image. Consider adding a Project Catalog if it applies. By the way, it goes without saying make sure that your Profile Settings are on Public not Private so others can view the Profile.
COVER LETTER: Create a flexible cover letter that is less than 100 words. Long cover letters rarely get read, but instead are ignored. Break the cover letter into four sections. Section 1 : Acknowledge the job that you are applying for such as "Looking forward to discussing your graphics design project". Section 2: Highlight your validations stamps IE skills that are brought to their project. Section 3 Explain how you will solve their problem and the final section request an Upwork Zoom call to discuss their project.
