I used more colorful language.
Then I found out there was a market for that and that's when the big bucks started rolling in!

Please don't waste any more connects, they don't grow on trees, young man! Have you seen your profile? You are kidding, right?

What does a terrible profile have to do with initial views. Just testing this place out. Obviously I’ve had more viewers posting in this forum than proposal responses.

When you submit a bid, the client sees a partial preview of your profile. It's also likely that those commenting on your profile are assuming that your proposals are no better crafted.

Marshall:

What does "initial views" mean?

That doesn't mean anything.

 

You mentioned "only 2 profile views."

I can assure you that you do not know what this means.

I have been on Upwork for years and I constantly study how it works, and I don't know what that means.

 

If you are testing this place out by sending "25 proposals," then you should understand that every time you sent a proposal, IF a client clicked on your name or picture... then they saw your profile and realized you weren't a real Upwork freelancer. So they hired somebody else.

I had read that a copy of resume was sent with proposal. That’s a big difference!!!

One thing I just figured out. Is that views are not posted real time here. Seems it takes some time to gather the report

It is not a "hit counter" or "page view counter."

 

I think you're looking at something that most of us ignore.
