Well, if it is to comment on the subject in question, this should be filled with opinions, which each person will have to own.


I think it is an important improvement, since before it was ZERO the monthly accredited connects, however now there will be 10.


I think that freelancers should focus on a better use of the connects, as it is:
Apply for tasks that we can really stand out and win.
Apply for projects that match our skills.
Respond to interviews quickly.
Buy 20 connects every time we get paid from a project won.


Our job, as freelancers, is and should be to solve clients' requirements instead of evaluating UP's management. Because this only results in debates, discussions, etc, etc, which, according to my experience, does not lead to anything good.

Yes good policy 

But they have to give 60 free connects evey month. Then the more  the freelancer can apply or more canb generate revenue to upwork also.

Hi Katrina, 


This is great news. Any idea if something similar will be announced for agencies as well?



With Thanks,

Hi Dushyant,
Both agencies and freelancers will receive 10 connects for each interview won from a proposal submitted. We are looking at making improvements to the Agency Plus plans as well. Besides Connects, what other benefits would you like to see?

One Suggestions I have now, is it possible that you can set to two connects required for small or long term job?
