I am considering writing a proposal for an opportunity to work with a client.
However, before I do so, the client says that it would be helpful to speak to the person taking on the project by phone so that they can give more background to the situation and project. It is a fixed price contract.
My question, is this permissible?
I'd really appreciate knowing this before I submit my proposal.
I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you
re: "My question, is this permissible?"
Upwork has no restrictions on communicating with clients or prospective clients using phone or other methods of communication.
The only related restriction is that you may not post your phone number on your profile page.
I have done that many times, although i try to replicate the main point of the call on the chat, in case of a dispute, so like, after the call you say, ¨So to sumarize, this is what you need right...¨ it helps! cheers.!
