I've been working on Upwork for the past 3 months. But no significant success has been achieved so far. I have applied to at least 50 jobs, of which I have only received 2 clients replies. Even I work hard when sending proposals. Tell the client that I do your job well. But still, no one gets the response. If anyone here in the Upwork community can guide me well and properly. Tell me how I can become a successful freelancer on Upwork. Thanks.

Hi, I am very new to upwork. I signed on a while back, but I was working full time elsewhere. My current status has changed and I plan to be actively working online as much as possible. I just need some assistance. Do I put in information for payment when I do a job for someone? 

 

Thank you,

 Brenda, 

The only time you will get paid on Upwork, is if your client initiates an official Upwork contract either hourly (preferably tracked) or as a fixed price escrow funded job. If any client suggests other types of payment outside Upwork report them.

 

So - if a client wants to hire you ask them to set up the Upwork contract that you have both agreed to and you accept and get on with the job within the boundaries of the contract - hourly, fixed price,  pay, delivery date, etc. 

You should read all the help pages on Upwork starting here, and which will really help you through all the steps: https://community.upwork.com/t5/New-to-Upwork/Getting-Started-on-Upwork/m-p/264214#M2460

Your English is not on the level of a native speaker therefore you should not offer to write in English.

How does a writer receive the "native" designation?

Imran brother. Change your profile picture. Your writing is good. But it is your profile picture that is keeping you from getting jobs. Dress professionally, have a great smile and have some good background. I can't explain in detail. But profile picture has a lot to do with the achievement of jobs.
