4 Proven Proposals That Got Me Hired on Upwork, And Their Respective Clients’ Job Descriptions

Hello writers and readers, It’s 10; 25 pm East African time as I start writing this article. I love sharing the tips I use to win in life. Most of the time I do not intend to share – but once I do, I feel happier sharing.

I took a long break out of Upwork, as I was working with my two long-term clients that are both building their websites, and therefore needed me full time. We’ve been working with them for years, and when this year began, I thought we’d wrap up, and go back to Upwork. Well, we’re still working, December 2021, and no signs to stop because I’m always coming up with new, constructive ideas for their upcoming websites.

You see, clients don’t just re-hire you for nothing. But when you look for the loopholes in the problems and offer genuine solutions; you’re stuck with them for some good projects.

I talk too much. This December, I blessed myself with my dream laptop, and in the spirit of testing it on all my favorite activities; I decided to jokingly send 4 proposals on Upwork. I truly wasn’t expecting anything, but since I don’t know how to send shoddy proposals, I did a good job.

Two of the proposals got interviews right away. But I proceeded with only one for a contract because the other was undercharging, and wouldn’t step up to my rates.

Sharing My Proposals

I’m almost getting to what you’re here for.

Initially, I had promised myself to post most of the proposals that I win jobs from, here on my blog – so that others can pick one or two ideas from them.

The good news is that I’ll continue working on Upwork, and look for a way to balance with my non-Upwork clients, as well as create content on YouTube, create websites for my clients, train my online article writing students, and run my businesses.

As per the later point, I sent a few more proposals, after the first 4, and got 3 interviews, but proceeded with one. Out of the two dropped, one thought I was missing on Upwork for long (they see on your profile whether you’ve been actively working or not), while the other couldn’t afford me again.

Below I’m sharing proposals from the clients who hired me, and those were eying me, but couldn’t hire me. I’m attaching the clients’ job descriptions too, so that you can connect my proposals to them, for a better understanding:

1. Client’s Job Description 1
