Alexander, I like that you are testing.  Testing is good, although hard in this case to determine results.  If you end up getting hired more is it because of that.  It is way below "the fold" as they used to say and how can you be even sure someone sees it.

 

I think everyone's experience here is different but the question I would ask myself is...

Would I even want a client who wants that $100.00?

I think most clients realize they will never get that $100 anyway. I'm pretty sure everyone thinks it's somewhat humorous. 

 

But yes you're right, the type of clients I'm going for probably wouldn't be enticed by a mere $100. 

 

Perhaps I should up the antee to $1000?

 

I'd really be making a statement then!

Nope. It sounds somewhere between "cheap gimmick" and "desperate" with a touch of "used car salesman in Texas" thrown in for free - It also directly contradicts the "I don't respond to template invites" thing.

 

Its only saving grace is that hardly anyone reads that far.

Well I took out because someone reported me, and apparently offering to PAY clients outside of Upwork is a violation of the ToS!

Since this is becoming a thing, I'd like to announce that I'm Upwork's newest Community Leader.

 

It's my time to shine now.

 

My first decree is freelancers shall be allowed to message other freelancer using the actual Upwork platform, without having to use their client accounts.

 

My second decree is connects shall be refunded to freelancers who applied to a job posting where a client invites and hires a freelancer whom they've previously hired within the past 3 months. 

 

My third decree is the establishment of the annual "Million Upworker March", which shall take place every July 4th infront of Upwork's headquarters in California. 

 

Now go, go into the world and spread this gospel.
