The All-Star Freelancer Club (Beta) - Rewarding Top Freelancers for their Hard Work

Hello everyone,

 

oDesk All Star badge. Freelancers on oDesk deliver great work, day in and day out. So to show our appreciation for excellent performance, we’re thrilled to introduce the beta launch of our All-Star Freelancer Club!

 

Over the next few months, we’ll be inviting a small, randomly selected group of our top freelancers to join the All-Star Club. This is just a beta test before the program opens to all qualified freelancers—however, we would love your feedback now to be sure we’re doing our best to give you what you want most!

 

How do I qualify?

The beta program will have three “clubs”:

 

  • The Gold Club: For freelancers who have earned $15,000 or more in the past three months
  • The Silver Club: For freelancers who have earned $10,000 or more in the past three months OR worked on average 40 or more hours per week
  • The Bronze Club: For freelancers who have earned $5,000 or more in the past three months OR worked on average 30 or more hours per week

To be eligible for a Club, freelancers must:

  • Be independent contractors (because agencies have different needs, we’re also considering a separate agency program)
  • Comply with all oDesk policies
  • Deliver high levels of professionalism (this includes having low levels of disputes, client complaints, refunds, etc.)

What are the benefits?

Each club has its own level of perks and support. As we expand the program and listen to your feedback, we will continue to add the benefits you ask for. oDesk All Star badge. How do I stay eligible?

Eligibility is assessed at the beginning of every month, looking at the previous three months. If you fall below the cutoff in earnings or hours, you will have one month to get back on track before your club status is paused or dropped down to a lower level. You can always come back to a club by increasing your earnings or hours in the future.

 

Have feedback on this program? We want to hear it! Please fill out our survey.

 

Thanks so much for reading this post, doing great work, and making oDesk a great place to build a career.

 

Happy working,

The oDesk Crew

This is indeed an encouraging procedure and will certainly bring more competition to the field. Thank you for inviting me to the Bronze Club, looking forward to joining the Silver! Keep up the good work you too!

Will this option be a selection for Clients when prospecting for Freelancers? If that is the case, it will further make it more difficult for those who do not qualify to get jobs. ie Currently if we apply for jobs that have red ! exclamation marks beside preferred qualifications, our proposals are hidden in a drop down menu on the Client's screen. A better way would be to prevent Freelancers from being able to apply to jobs that they are not qualified for instead of hiding their proposals and ultimately wasting their connection credits.

Hi Robson,

 

The All-Star Freelancer club has been discontinued a while ago as well as the auto-hide feature.
