Very little response to proposals; is it my Profile?

Could someone please take a quick look at my profile and possibly tell me why I am getting so little response to proposals? I have submitted over 50 proposals and only had 3 people respond but not hire me. Just curious if I may need to tweak my Profile. Thanks!

My opinion is to remove "Although I am new to Upwork" they already know that.

Further more, write above How can I help you ? Then explain how can you help.

And keep the explanation of your experience down below that.

Also someone before said " remove the much I and me "

 

so I have over 15 years experience as a full charge bookkeeper. I have extensive experience in Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable, payroll, payroll tax liabilities, account reconciliation, and banking. I am also skilled in letter composition, web searching, compiling data, data entry, creating spreadsheets, proofreading, and I am able to type 65+ words per minute.

 

make it start with Over 15 years.. Delete " I have "

 

and the same for the rest

Thank you, I have eliminated many of the "I"'s and reworded other bits as well.

you need to do that in all the paragraphs not just the one starts with Over 15 years exp, Do it for everything even the customized profiles

 

even here : 

I look forward to hearing about your project that you feel I may be able to help you with.

 

May Change it to : Looking forward to... etc

 

Try to not use I or Me as the first word in the line

I made the additional changes and just deleted the specialized profiles, as I don't really use them anyway. This may help me look more focused on bookkeeping. Thank you so much!

I am unable to complete my profile, as I have no social account to link. I don't see any other options for completing it to 100%.

I don't even have social account also like you, But here's the trick i did, choose to attach social account and choose ( stackoverflow ) when it sends you to the site just register there with the same gmail attached to upwork and its done it will give you 10% for that Smiley Very Happy

after doing it. If still not 100% tell me how much and i'll help you to complete the rest.
