Hi Hart,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. You’ll see your monthly free Connects added on your next billing cycle date. Not sure when your billing cycle begins? You can find this date on your “Memberships and Connects” page under User Settings. You’ll also receive an email when your Connects are available for use. You can find more information here

 

I checked and it looks like you should receive your monthly free Connects in the next 48 hours. If you do not receive your Connects by then please follow up and let us know so that we can assist you further. 

 

~ Nikola

Hi OKEKE,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. I checked and I can see that you already received monthly free Connects for the period you are referring to. Please check your Connects History page for more information. 

 

Please know that you’ll see your monthly free Connects added at the beginning of your billing cycle. Not sure when your billing cycle begins? You can find this date on your “Memberships and Connects” page under User Settings. You’ll also receive an email when your Connects are available for use.

Buy them. But before you do that, fix all the errors in your profile, there are too many. And add a portfolio.

Hi Leming,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. I would like to clarify that as a freelancer you receive free Connects each month to help reach out to more clients. Freelancer Basic accounts receive 10 free Connects each month, and Freelancer Plus accounts receive 70 Connects each month (including 10 FREE!). Learn more about Freelancer Plus accounts here. 

 

Additionally, you can earn Connects in several ways: 

 

  • Register for the first time. You’ll receive 40 Connects to get started. When you complete the Upwork Readiness Test, you’ll receive another 40 Connects — that's 80 FREE Connects!
  • Win an interview. When you submit a proposal to a client, win an interview, and reply, you’ll get a bonus of 10 Connects. You can earn up to 50 Connects every seven days.
  • Complete an Upwork Skill Certification. If you earn an Upwork Skill Certification, you’ll enjoy a one-time Connects bonus.
  • Earn a badge. If you qualify for an Upwork Talent Badge, you may receive bonus Connects with it!

 

Also as Martina shared you can always purchase additional Connects. You can find more information in this help article

 

Edited to add:
