What's Your Question?
How to Write a Job Application Cover Letter
Writing a cover letter is essential when applying for jobs. This is the perfect way to express how your specific skills are relevant to the open position. Wow your future employer with this simple cover letter example format.
Write a First Draft
Writing a first draft makes your letter concise and professional, states The Balance Careers. Organize your thoughts by making a list of what you’re trying to convey. Make sure you prioritize certain aspects like your previous job experience and why you would be a good fit for the position. Clearly state what position you’re interested in and why. Think about why you’re applying and what caught your eye about this specific position. Your cover letter will be easier to write after your thoughts are collected and organized.
Customize Your Salutation
When writing a salutation, make sure you know who you are writing to. Is this person the owner of the company or a Human Resources administrator? If you’re not sure, research the company to find out. Addressing your cover letter to a specific person shows initiative and attention to detail. After your salutation, start your letter with a short introduction of yourself. This gives future employers insight into who you are and the purpose of your cover letter.
Your cover letter should be no more than one page, so keep your points brief. Clearly state what position you are interested in and why. Explain why you are a good fit for the company because of your past job experience. If you have no similar job experience, let the employer know why you are changing career paths. Expand on your skills and give specific examples of how that skill set helped you at your last position. Name projects you’ve worked on and show results.
Close Your Letter
End your cover letter with a brief sentence and sign off. Thank the employer for their time and express your interest towards the job again. Let them know you’ll follow up with them if you do not hear back within a week and leave your contact information. Sign off with a professional farewell and leave room for a signature if sending a hard copy.
Edit and Proofread
As you finish writing your cover letter, make sure you take time to edit and proofread your document. Make sure it’s structured in a professional format with the company’s information, the salutation and introduction, the body of the letter, a brief closing sentence and farewell. Check for spelling and grammar mistakes to ensure a formal result. Make sure all names are spelled correctly, as well.

Upwork is the largest freelance marketplace online, with thousands of jobs posted every day.
Getting started as a freelancer on Upwork can be tough, because you’re often competing with dozens of other freelancers for a single job, and many of them are well established on the platform, with lots of great ratings and reviews.
So, how can you compete?
Well, it helps to submit A LOT of proposals.
In the words of Wayne Gretzky…
You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.
And it follows that the more shots you do take, the more likely you are to score.
But you should also ensure that you’re submitting QUALITY proposals, proposals that will help you stand out from the crowd and give you a solid chance of winning the job.
So, QUALITY and QUANTITY.
That’s what you should be aiming for.
And that’s where the following list of Upwork sample cover letters can help. They will enable you to apply for more jobs without resorting to obvious copy-and-paste tactics.
Each sample below is derived from a real cover letter that won a real job on Upwork.
I’ve included screenshots of the original job postings and cover letters so you can see exactly what the job was and how it was won.
Below each sample you’ll find a corresponding template you can use to quickly craft your own proposal for ANY job on Upwork.
There are 4 templates in total:
The Short And Sweet
The screencast standout, the honest newbie, the quick lister.
Note that each sample you’re about to see was submitted by a member of our private Freedom Business Builder community. Two of them were responses to job invites, and two were cold pitches.
Before we dive in...
Consider signing up for our twice-weekly newsletter. You’ll receive an email every Tuesday and Friday, packed with tips, strategies and opportunities to build your online business. Our 28,739 subscribers ❤️ it.
Alright, here are the cover letter templates…
This first proposal sample comes from Justin, a freelance web designer and digital marketer.
The Job Description
The cover letter.
Justin was hired for the job at $50/hour.
I typically use the same model for Upwork proposals: I ask about 3-4 relevant questions about the job in the first paragraph, and I qualify myself in the second paragraph.
So the template is as follows:
Hello [Client Name] , [If applicable: Thanks for the job invite.] It’s a pleasure to meet you. [Ask 3-4 short but relevant questions about the job here. This shows that you’ve read the description and know your stuff, and also invites the client to begin a conversation with you.] [Qualify yourself briefly here. 1-2 lines that communicate why you’d be a good fit for this job.] Best regards, [Your Name]
- Justin addressed the client by name at the beginning of his cover letter, even though the client never mentioned their name in the job description. Often you can find the client’s name mentioned in the reviews section of their profile. Going to the effort of finding their name and including it in your proposal will help you stand out from the crowd.
- Keep in mind that Justin was invited to this job, which gave him a much better chance of being hired. I asked Justin about this and he believes the key to getting hired is his strong profile and track record on Upwork.
- Justin taught himself web design in a two-month period, then started on Upwork at $9/hour. A little more than a year later he’d also taught himself digital marketing and was earning $45-55/hour consistently. Read more about his journey to Upwork success here .
This next proposal sample comes from Natalia, a freelance copywriter.
See Natalia’s screencast here:
Natalia explained to me via email:
This was my very first proposal screencast. It saves time to make a screencast to review a client’s website rather than writing endlessly to explain what you mean. This proposal was an answer to an invite to apply, but he invited a few people so I wanted to stand out.
The client was impressed:
Natalia ended up getting paid $350 for this job, but that wasn’t the end of it:
I’m still working for this client, and he is constantly thinking up new jobs I can do for the campaign because he is always happy with my work.
First, a warning:
- You should be selective including screencasts as part of you cover letter. They are are not always appropriate. Use them if you find yourself trying to explain something to a client in writing that would be more easily explained on screen.
The template is as follows:
Hello [Client’s Name] , [If applicable: Thank you for your invitation.] [Share a link to your screencast and briefly explain what it contains. You want to give the client a compelling reason to click the link and watch. Tell them what benefit they will get from it and note that it will only take up a few minutes of their time.] [1 paragraph explaining why the job appeals to you. Bonus points if you can share why the goals of the client resonate with you personally.] [1 paragraph sharing an example of your work, ideally closely related to the job you’re applying for.] If you want to collaborate with me let’s discuss it in more detail over the chat. Kind regards, [Your Name]
- Pro Tip Use the free version of Loom to create and share screencasts effortlessly.
This next proposal sample comes from Gray, a freelance graphic designer.
Gray was hired to do the job at a 10% discount, but that was only the beginning. As he explained to me via email:
This also led to ongoing work and was for the guys who I am pricing up that $8,000 job for. Its looking like it is going to be a bit more than that btw. Its for a complete game, and Im currently going through the spec with them bit by bit.
I came at it with an honest approach and said basically ‘look, I have a lot of experience, but none on upwork, help me out and Ill do it for a 10% discount. Win win.’
Hello [Client’s Name], I’d really like to work with you on this one if possible! I do have a couple of questions, but first I’d like to make you an offer and some background so you can check my work out. [Short paragraph explaining your work experience relevant to the job.] However, I am new to Upwork and looking to get a few clients that I can build upon. If you take a look at my work and feel that I could help you, I’ll do it for a 10% discount. You’ll get all the expected stuff like a great professional service and a fast turn around, at a bit less, and I get a bit more exposure. [If applicable, include a link to your portfolio website here, or invite the client to check out the work samples you’ve attached to your proposal.] [Ask 1-2 short but relevant questions about the job here. This shows that you’ve read the description and know your stuff, and also invites the client to begin a conversation with you.] If the above offer sounds like something you would be interested in, I’d love to hear from you. Regards, [Your Name]
Note that the template above doesn’t contain the word TOKYO, which was included at the top of Gray’s cover letter. Gray added that as a response to the client’s request at the bottom of the job description. Many clients use this trick to quickly determine if you’ve actually read the job description.
So… make sure you actually read the job description!
This next proposal sample comes from Susan, a freelance editor and proofreader.
Susan explained to me via email:
I bid $125, and it was accepted immediately. This job took me 90 minutes to complete and 30 minutes to double check. As this was a legal document, I was careful to edit in a way that did not change the meaning of any of the sentences. This Swiss lawyer had English that was near perfect. I delivered the files within 2 hours and the client added a $40 bonus to my payment and left me 5-star feedback. $165 for 2 hours is a pretty good rate.
Hi [Client’s Name], I would be happy to work on your [document/job/whatever] immediately. [Numbered list covering the most important requirements mentioned in the job description, and how you plan to meet them. This shows that you fully understand what’s needed and have a plan for making it happen.] [1-2 paragraphs detailing your background/expertise, as relevant to the job at hand.] What you’ll receive: [Short list that paints a clear picture of what you will deliver (and by when) should the client hire you to do the job.] Send me a quick message and we can figure out if we are a good fit to work together! [Your Name]
- Not included in the template: the “Code 833” at the top of Susan’s proposal. This was a response to the client’s request hidden within the job description. Many clients use this trick to quickly determine if you’ve read it thoroughly.

Confirm that this approach to proposal writing works well. I get about 50% of the answers. Thanks Niall!
Hey, Thank you so much! I read your blog post the previous night and sent a proposal according to your first 1. The short and sweet. I applied it and tomorrow morning I saw a reply from that client. Thank you so much. It is crazy. I am going to subscribe you to get more and more beneficial posts.
Hi Nail, I read this writeup and some other posts (the profile remodeling and scam flags) and I have to say, I was really pumped and I put them to work. A few days later, I got my first gig. I finished in record time and got an excellent review. It’s just that after that, I’ve got nothing else. After a lot of proposals using the techniques above, I get a few responses but nothing serious. Any advice? Thanks for the tips and the first job, tho’ and thanks in advance for any tips. David
It could be a number of things, hard to know just from what you’ve written. But ultimately pitching for jobs on Upwork is a numbers game. You have to keep pitching as much as you can and perhaps even lower your rate to get the first few jobs and reviews. Once you have more reviews it becomes easier to get jobs.
Thanks a lot Niall Doherty,
Your Cover letters really helped me to win more jobs on Upwork.
Thank you again!
Thanks for the helpful tips. I’ve already had some successful contracts on upWork, and do use some of the ideas (such as addressing by name.) I’d like to increase my percentage of contracts won, and hope to do so by following some of your other tips. I’ll report back next week, after I’ve tried a few. Cheers!
Thanks for an excellent resource. For once, Google’s #1 search result truly deserved to be #1
Hi Sir Niall, Good day! I just sent my proposal today and hopefully, I’ll get a response soon. Here’s the link to my cover letter and the job posted. https://imgur.com/a/YOwNZdJ Thank you, Joshie
i won my first client in just 5 minutes thanks a lot
I cannot thank you enough for sharing this information! I used a mix of a The Honest Newbie & The Quick Lister for my very first proposal on UpWork. I got a contract back later that day!
Glad to hear that, Sam. Well done!
Hi Niall, I have been trying to freelance on Upwork for the last few months, but am getting little interest from potential clients. I am an architectural designer with 13 years experience, but have no college degree. I write cover letters offering to help with the problem the clients listed about design or construction, list the services I can give them, attach samples of my previous work, and tell that I am ready to start if they are interested. So far nobody is. It is discouraging to keep submitting offers for work that are ignored, when I try to be friendly, professional, and interested. What am I doing wrong do you think?
It’s hard to know what the issue is based only on what you’ve shared here. But first thing I’d say is that if you’ve submitted less than 20 proposals, you should keep trying. You can keep tweaking and experimenting with your proposals, but ultimately Upwork is a numbers game. Even the best freelancers on there probably win no more than 30% of the jobs they pitch for. And starting out it’s probably more like 5-10%.
Secondly, it might be worth lowering your rate for a while, if you haven’t already. Do that in combination with the Honest Newbie template above and see how you get on.
Thank you Nial.
I combined your two templates No.4 + No. 3 in order to write my proposal yesterday. And I got the first job out of 5 proposals.
I really appreciated it!!!.
Great job, Olivia!
Woow! Niall, this is an amazing content and excellent guides to upwork. Thank you and keep it up.
Thanks, Nicholas 🙂
Thanks a lot for your suggestion. Great work! I will definitely try in this process.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS! I was able to get my first job within my first round of sending out only 6 proposals because of these templates! As a student this was such a great feeling.
That’s great, Christine! Well done 🙂
Update, not a week later I have now secured not one but TWO long term contracts due to these templates getting me through the door and my work being up to par! Many many thanks!
You’re crushing it 🙂 Thanks for reporting back!
Hi Niall.. As i am new to upwork.com. I am so.much disturb due to not getting a perfect contract here on upwork. i quit my job as a teacher. But when i started sending proposals here it didn’t worked out. Will these templates of yours help me out in getting the desired job
You’ll do better with these templates than without them, Hussain. Give them a try!
wonderful, i have been much disturbed with this cover letter but now am ok.
Hi Niall Doherty. My name is Jay and Thank you for sharing your great experience Knowledge here. I has just start on upwork. and this will be big help for me. If i says honestly then i was completely tired because there is no activity acting on my profile. i have tried many things to get clients but i just got only one client in a month which is not good. and was looking for guidance and it’s my pleasure that i meet you here on your home(website). I have just read your most of articles and i would like to follow your steps. I am very exciting to leave a screenshot of my next success here on your site by following your words. do you like to give me any suggestions!! great regards, Jay R.

This article really gave a boost to my aspirations. I believe you have just jump started my career on Upwork. Thank you.
Thanks for all the super helpful info!
This article is very helpful, thank you so much for this
Thank you very much!! Valuable info
So, Susan, in her linked interview, mentions a specific course she took with you, Niall (or perhaps it’s one you made?). She mentions that this course was what she believed helped her in her 30-day experiment with Upwork. I’ve clicked around and can find nothing but the Facebook group. What is the course she’s referring to, and are you still offering it?
Yes, I had a course (originally called “3 Months -> $1k” … later rebranded as “Freedom Business Builder”) that was available for almost 3 years but I closed it at the end of November 2018. The Facebook group for the course is still active and our Patreon supporters get access to it.
Are you looking to do similar work to Susan?
Thanks for replying, Niall! Yes I am looking to do the same line of work. I’ve landed a few jobs and would love some tips about how to really take off on Upwork.
Congrats on landing a few jobs already 🙂
The best resource I’ve come across for succeeding on Upwork is https://freelancetowin.com/ . Go through the free info on that site and you’ll be ahead of the pack.
Will do, thanks!

What Do You Mean by Cover Letter in UpWork?
Last updated on September 29, 2022 @ 9:43 pm
When you are applying for a job on UpWork, the first thing potential employers will see is your cover letter. In order to make a good first impression, it is important to take the time to craft a well-written, professional cover letter.
A cover letter is essentially a brief introduction of yourself and your qualifications. It is an opportunity to sell yourself to the employer and explain why you are the best candidate for the job. In addition to highlighting your skills and experience, a cover letter is also a chance to show off your writing ability and demonstrate your ability to communicate effectively.
While there is no one right way to write a cover letter, there are some things you should avoid. First, do not simply repeat the information that is already included in your resume. A cover letter should supplement your resume, not duplicate it.
Second, do not use flowery or overly-formal language. Be concise and to the point. And finally, do not make any promises that you cannot keep.

Thank you for signing up.
What does “cover letter” mean on Upwork?
An Upwork proposal is comprised of three parts:
- Cover letter
The terms section is where you will indicate an hourly rate or bid for the project. The attachments section is normally used for related work samples. And the Upwork cover letter is where you, the freelancer, will write a personal letter to the potential client letting them know why you are the right person for the job.
What should an Upwork cover letter say?
Every Upwork cover letter you send should include:
- A confident understanding of the requirements
- Details about the job description*
- A genuine interest in the work
- Your professional qualifications
- A unique selling point
- A link to an off-site portfolio or your Upwork profile**
- A call to action
* I’ve also played the role of client on the Upwork platform. And I can tell you, from personal experience, that most freelancers are just sending generic proposals and not actually reading the job post. This is why, referencing specific details about the job and customizing your prorposals and cover letters will likely make you an instant stand out. ** Linking to any external website that contains an non-Upwork method of contact in your cover letter is against Upwork’s terms of service. That includes contact forms. So if you go this route, either create a landing page without an alternate method of contact or simply link to your own Upwork profile. This may sound like a redundant step to some, but I can assure you, as a client, I find the client side interface to be confusing. I often have a hard time navigating to the applicant’s Upwork profile, and love it when freelancers save me the trouble by just including a direct link.
Also, consider installing Grammarly . It’s completely free and catches all sorts of typos and grammar mistakes. It’s been a game changer for my proposals and my blogs.
For details on how to accomplish the above tasks, check out my other article: “Upwork proposals: 11 tips from a $600k freelancer” .
Upwork cover letters samples and examples
Before we get to the samples, I want to offer a few general clarifications and disclaimers.
For context, graphic design is my primary niche on Upwork. But I am also a skilled WordPress designer , content writer and SEO expert .
All of the other examples I am providing are either industries in which I have some experience on either the freelance or client side. So I feel confident enough to tell you what I believe would attract a prospective client. (But I am also eager to hear your thoughts on these samples in the comments below.)
Also, take note that I am using brackets as placeholders in the following examples. So be sure to fill in the blanks on your own.
Speaking of which, even though you could easily copy and paste these examples and use them (mostly) as is, I encourage you to treat them more like an outline .
It’s likely that this article is going to get a lot of traffic. We don’t want every freelancer on Upwork to start using the same proposal. So I encourage you to customize these heavily to make them unique .
Finally, notice that almost all of these proposals have a few things in common. Obviously, they each include the seven previously mentioned key selling points. But they are also written in a personal, semi-casual style. I have intentionally left out phrases like “dear sir or madam”, “dear hiring manager” and “best regards”.
I’ve also intentionally left out mentions of higher education like diplomas and college degrees.

How to Write a Winning Upwork Cover Letter (+Sample)
Crafting an Upwork cover letter that wins you the job is one of the two things that drive new Upworkers crazy (the other being how to get approved on Upwork ).
This drove me crazy too when I started out. In fact, I must have spent countless hours and sent so many proposals before I started getting replies.
I almost purchased a $300 course just to get access to their community’s Upwork proposal vault.
If you’re in a similar position, you have come to the right place.
In this article, let’s discuss how to write an effective Upwork proposal cover letter that will win you the job.
Let’s get this started!
From Zero to Hero
When I started using Upwork, it was a while until I was able to land a contract.
When I did manage to land my first contract, I thought I had cracked the code and all I had to do was submit the same cover letter again and again.
Here’s what that (cringy and embarrassing) cover letter looks like:
(Good thing it happened before Upwork started banning accounts who submit way too many proposals without getting an offer.)
Using that stinky cover letter above, I still receive a few replies. But that’s it — no new offers or whatsoever.
Two realizations hit me:
- I knew then that I didn’t crack the code.
- Canned, word for word cover letters don’t work.
After three years, here’s my marketing effectiveness:
Stick until the end and I will show you an example of an Upwork cover letter I used to land a premium deal with a client.
Now, here’s how to make your cover letters better:
Sign up for exclusive updates, tips, and strategies
Answer the Additional Questions First
Many job postings will require you to answer additional questions besides submitting a cover letter.
Here’s a good example:
As you can see, the cover letter comes first followed by the additional questions you have to answer.
Naturally, you may spend most of your energy trying to make that cover letter flawless and then, answer the additional questions with a one-line sentence only, like an afterthought.
What you may not know is that when the client reviews your proposal, he will see the additional questions first.
I discovered this when I posted a job on Upwork.
Here’s one of the answers I got:
As you can see, clients will see the answers to the questions first. The cover letter will be the last element. That’s why when you see questions in the job posts, focus your energy first on the questions.
In a way, additional questions are more important than the cover letter itself.
Address the Client by Name
Whether it’s an Upwork cover letter, a cold email, or a private message on Facebook, addressing the client by name has a great impact.
After all, names are the sweetest and most important sound in any language according to Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People book.
But does it really increase the effectiveness of your Upwork proposal?
Well, calling the client by name is just the first part of making your cover letter more personal.
It shows that you have done your research and most likely, the content of your cover letter isn’t canned.
As an example, let’s say that you’re the client and you need someone to write new articles on your website.
One of the proposals you received is this:
Would you hire him? Exactly!
The question is, where will you get the name of the client?
How to Find the Client’s Name
It’s easy enough when the job post has the client’s name.
Unfortunately, only around 1 of 10 posts has the client’s name.
If this is the case, scroll down to the client’s recent history and find reviews from past contractors that mentioned the client’s name.
For example, this job post doesn’t contain any clue about who the client is.
But on the client’s recent history, you will find two mentions of his name there.
Sometimes, you may find different names on the client’s history. Some may have addressed the client as Darren, Karen, or John.
To make matters easier, use the name mentioned in a review from a freelancer with similar services as you.
Let’s say that you’re a content writer. A past content writer left a review and addressed the client as John. In this case, use John in your cover letter.
There may also be instances when the client, together with his name, wrote the name of his company. There’s a lot of gold in here simply because you can make even more research.
One of my clients, when he posted the job, only displayed the company name. There was no clue about the recent history of his name. But since the company name was there, I was able to dig deeper.
Here’s a portion of the cover letter I sent that I’m quite sure caught his attention:
This has led to an active partnership. (I can also confirm that working with his particular client’s team is fun and exciting!)
By that, I don’t mean writing a line that says “I’m interested in your job post.”
There are usually two ways to do this:
- Make a suggestion
- Or ask a question
Let’s use this job post I found about a client looking for a content writer for his travel website:
Just because the job description was short, it doesn’t mean you have to put in the same effort and make your cover letter short.
This is often a mistake I see new freelancers do.
But how will you add value to a post as short as this?
If I were to submit a cover letter to do this job post, here’s what I would do:
- Explain to the client what an awesome about us page is and what it contains. (If you’re not aware, the about us page, in addition to telling your story, is an excellent waypoint to different pages or content on your website.)
- Include links to show him what I mean.
- Suggest how I can do the same.
- Ask him for a link to his website.
You can also show interest by mentioning something that only someone who dug deeper will be able to know. An example of this is the cover letter I showed in the earlier section where I mentioned something about the client’s team.
The Rate Matters
This part isn’t much about the cover letter itself but on what job post you submit your cover letter.
One of the things I have learned over the years is that there could be a mismatch between your rate and how much your client can afford or is willing to spend.
For example, no matter how good your cover letter is, it’s impossible for you to ask a high rate for this project.
How did I know this? Looking at the client’s recent history, he paid someone a measly $25 for an educational blog.
From the client’s recent history, you can be certain that he’s only looking for freelancers with (super) low rates.
One more thing: Avoid low-ballers .
These clients will not pay you for what you’re worth. You will only be wasting six connects which you could have used to submit a proposal to a premium project.
Further reading : There are a few job posts that have a high budget but will actually pay you peanuts — they lure freelancers by posting big budgets. This is one of the things I shared in my tips for Upworkers article . It’s perfect for those who are still starting out in Upwork.
Mention Your Experience
I have read numerous posts from “freelance gurus” that you don’t need experience to land premium contracts.
Although there’s truth to it, it’s not the whole truth.
As a client myself, I would like to make sure that the freelancer has the capability to do the tasks and that he’s willing to learn if he doesn’t have the skills yet.
However, freelancers who have previous similar experience and can prove it will most likely win the contract.
Why? Because it’s more certain that they will be able to do the job better and faster, which is a win for clients who go into hourly contracts with freelancers.
In addition to experience, include samples of related work or outcomes that you know the client will love.
For example, after including relevant samples of my work, this client has responded well to my cover letter and we ended up working together.
If you don’t have any relevant samples, just create one, and show it to the client.
Include a Call to Action
At the end of your cover letter, invite the client to do something. It’s proven that they will likely do something if you tell them exactly what to do.
It’s tempting to say “Hope to hear from you soon” or “Hoping for your kind consideration”. But it doesn’t really invite the client to do something.
Here are good examples of effective CTA (call to action):
- Hit that reply button over there to continue our conversation. (Favorite)
- How about we hop on a five-minute call to discuss your business needs?
- If you want to collaborate, let’s discuss it more over the chat.
I have been working with different combinations and so far, the first one has worked best for me. However, I don’t think there’s much difference as long as you keep your call to action, clear, specific, and easy to commit to.
Keep a Swipe File of Upwork Cover Letters
If you’re not familiar with what a swipe file is, it’s basically a folder where you keep all awesome ideas, copies, content, and ideas you have encountered.
In this case, keep a swipe file of Upwork cover letters that worked. Then, reverse engineer them and see why they work.
This is actually how I started improving my cover letter. I found and saved the winning cover letters I found online and try to understand why they worked.
I usually have three places where I store them:
- OneNote (favorite)
- Google drive
- Local drive
A piece of advice: save your cover letters that worked.
Since I have a record of what works and what doesn’t, I regularly update and optimize my cover letter to reflect what I recently learned.
That’s how I knew which call to action I thought worked best.
In addition, you may want to include links to your best work too. This makes it easier for you to swap out the samples you want to mention in the cover letter to make sure you only mention the most relevant work samples.
Example of a Winning Upwork Cover Letter
As promised, here is a cover letter I used to land a premium deal with a client.
Note that you can use the pattern I set but make sure you don’t use exact words. This cover letter was designed solely for the certain job post to this cover letter was submitted to.
In a gist, here’s how I did it:
Hey [name] , I’m sure you’ve got a lot of pitches to deal with so I’ll keep this short. I help [your target industry] [the outcome your client would like to get from your service] . In the past, I helped [a previous client you worked with] [the outcome you helped your previous client achieve – should be similar to the outcome the client would like to get] . Here are links to some of my work: – [link 1] – [link 2] – [link 3] [Ask a question or suggest something] Simply hit that “Reply” button over there so we could continue our conversation. Regards, [Your name]
Feel free to use this template.
Win Premium Clients With a Personalized Cover Letter
Writing a winning cover letter is easier than you think. But it will need a lot of practice and trial and error to finally get it right.
As I said, it took me so much time and proposals before I got a reply. From there, I continued optimizing it and seeing what works for my target clients and industry.
I’m definitely positive that as you practice and write more proposal cover letters, you will get better and win jobs.
And if you get lost, try the template I provided above.
Now it’s your turn. Here’s what to do now:
- Go back to Upwork and apply what you have learned from this article.
- Use the template and check my sample for inspiration.
- Get back here and let us know how it went.

Stay safe always.
Hey Genera! Glad you find this article helpful to you. I know you can do it! I was able to do it even without experience (or skills) at that time so there’s no way you can’t do it.
Keep it up! ?
Hi sir I just want to ask in upwork sometimes it offer milestone in specific job how can i break the budget into milestone and what will a put in the description of each milestone ? Thanks God bless
Thanks Alan. Let me go back and re-strategize
Thank you so much for sharing this very informative article. I’m about to start my GVA career… your blog post truly help me a lot. I hope I could make it in this industry.
Good luck on your journey!
I am inspired by your post and I made some notes out of it. I believe it will go a long way to help. Am a newbie in upwork; am good in data entry, typing and I can handle Microsoft Office. But I do not have any past experience in any company or works done before except personal. How do I start, my first cover letter was rejected. Please help out, I will appreciate it. Thanks
My most regards, Hilary
That is tricky since the skills you have are the same skills that 99% of Upworkers have. If I were you, better learn a better skill and try again. For every job post that needs basic stuff, the client probably gets 100+ proposals, so your chance of even being seen is super low. Hope this helps!
Thank you for this Allan. This is very useful specially for people like me, just starting careen on being a Virtual Assitant.
Happy to help!
