You can also add a little bit of detail about your skills to make the Upwork proposal look honest and genuine and it looks like you are an expert in your skills.


Starting of Upwork cover letter:

At the start of the Upwork cover letter, there should be warm and professional greetings to the clients. Firstly you have to read the complete detail given by the client and understand our client's requirements, and after that, you also have to check the client's name.


For example, the client's name is Ahsan so you have to start your Upwork cover letter like this.


“Dear Mr. Ahsan” or “Hey Ahsan” or “What’s up, Ahsan” or “welcome Mr. Ahsan” and bold this text and italicize it.

This will look more professional and handsome cover letter. Add some invitation sentences like

“Thank you for your invitation or welcome etc

Your introduction to the best Upwork proposal:

Here you have to explain yourself to the point in 2 to 3 lines and about your skill for example

I am a professional and expert graphics designer and running an agency since 2005. Here is my website ( etc.


What you will do for a client:

Your samples:

Bid closing:

Add a maximum of 1 or 2 lines at the end of your Upwork bid for example

Looking forward to your response

Your name.


Things that will make your Upwork cover letter interesting and good-looking:


Your website:

As a freelancer, I have noticed that a freelancer should have a website by which he /she can show his experiences and looks professional in his work. A website can make your proposal strong and increase your job-winning chances.


You should have 24/7 support on your website to get a good customer experience. You can advertise your website on social media and give your Upwork profile links there so you will also get high visitors to your profile.


I recommended Hostinger hosting and domain because it gives amazing discounts and 24/7 customer support services.

Above is the cover letter for the Upwork proposal for video editors. You can generate or make a custom proposal using a new AI tool called CHAT GPT.


·       Samples and previous work should be given in your proposal otherwise there will be fewer chances to get the job.
