How to get work as an agency?

I am new to Upwork and have registered myself as a freelancer after reading community guidelines.

Now the question is, when I try to send application to any new client, it is sent as a freelancer, not as my agency. I don't want to work independently as I have stopped it for now. How can I apply for projects using my agency account?

No, you didn't, unless your parents really did call you "IdeastoVideos" - you also don't HAVE an Upwork agency added to your account and your entire profile is a bunch of policy violations....

 

Your profile has to be in your own, legal name and describe you, not your agency. You'd have to add an agency account to your freelancer account and add all your agency member, then pay the agency plan ($20 per month) and then you could work as an agency.

 

At the moment, you can't.

I can't change my name, tried doing so.

And apart from that, can I get work for my independent LLP company?

Hi there,

 

As Petra mentioned, your profile name should be your real name. Regarding the name change, you should be able to request it. Could you please let us know if you are receiving an error while trying to do so?

Thank you.
