The professional overview for the Upwork profile is an area freelancers don’t pay attention to.
But they fail to understand that a well-crafted professional overview can change your game on Upwork.
On several occasions, Upwork clients have sent me offers (hourly rate) without even interviewing me.
And whenever I asked them what gave them so much confidence in me, they would say “Paul, your professional overview did the marketing for you.”
However, I am yet to talk about your professional overview. And how it can attract some really high paying clients to you.
But here’s the deal – I didn’t know how to write a professional overview overnight.
Guys! It took me several years of trial and error before I finally realized what clients were looking for.
Let me give you a quick task.
Go through the professional overview of some of the biggest freelancers in your niche.
What do you notice?
They don’t talk about themselves and experience.
They don’t mention how many clients they have helped. And how successful they are as a web developer, content writer, copywriter, blah blah blah…
Do you know why?
No client gives a damn about you and your history.
All they want is the reassurance that you understand what gives them sleepiness nights and can help them fix it.
Wait! Don’t tell me you are widening your mouth already. LOL.
Close it, otherwise, flies will perch inside.
Okay! Enough of all the side talk already. This article contains a couple of samples for a professional overview for Upwork profile.
Study them carefully. Take note of what you are missing. And see how you can improve your profile and start printing dollars from Upwork.
