The first line is not very good, but the rest is great! :shifty:
With over 5 years of skilled mastery in Web Development among others. I am a skilled
Changed the period to a comma. I removed "among others", too, because it doesn't mean anything. What do you mean by "others"?Quote:

Really, though, I'm not sure I'd say "five years". It doesn't sound like much. Let them think it's longer by not giving a figure.
Glad you found the other changes useful. I wasn't sure you had even noticed them ...
Obviously, I had a cache problem because the text that I read now it is not what I read before... the new one is so much better (and by far better than what I wrote)
i want to suggest you to try at elance and freelancer, to get work at Odesk is very competitive. first of all you have to increase your rating via getting positive reviews and you have to bid low to get projects. try this formula, you will definitely get projects and clients
Sometimes using the same cover letters to contact the job lister doesn't work.
Using a more personal approach works much better. Meaning you should take
the time out to inquire about the (actual ) job post.
I see this all the time when we list jobs. I see Freelancers using the same cover
letters to apply for work. Be creative, make a video, or make the copy short
i know ,getting clients on oDesk is not so easy ,i also a oDesk user and faced same problem and not yet solved,now i getting clients just by links and directly going to clients and showing them my proposal.
I have to agree that spelling, grammar and punctuation are vitally important no matter the service you are providing.
I was seeking to hire a second writer this year to assist me and take on the extra work I couldn't manage as my business grows, but out of the 20 responses I received, only three of them had adequate English standards in their introductory email. 17 of them were immediately deleted if the content of their email was not adequate in language.
Of course, for a writing position this is a considerable factor, but I believe the same will apply to every business when there are so many competing for the same opportunities.
I think you need to see who you are competing with, their pricing and their standards, and you need to match them. Alternatively, you need to spend more time building a brand and creating trust in that brand so that your English skills are less important than your reputation or your abilities.
Ultimately, I think you will either need to build upon your English skills, or work harder in getting your brand and identity out there amongst the right communities so that your English is inconsequential.
Because there are a hundred ways to make free websites
Just my opinion, when I look for a developer I tend to avoid the one that have everything in professional wiring etc. I am looking for someone that is straight to the point and will get my job done quickly and efficiently. You also must be consistent, constantly follow up with clients.

how about your price selling? :)
I would say that the first would look more reliable because he cares about doing things properly.
Now a days linked in and other social media websites are very beneficial in getting new clients. Give it a try!
