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.

OP, really now?  Eons ago there was used car dealer in LA who used a similar gimmick ... to 'auction' off kids up for adoption.  

 

"If I don’t respond to your invite within 24 hours, I promise to send you $100 through mail, Cash App, PayPal, or whatever service you prefer."

 

Yes, those words are on his profile ...

I didn't until I saw Wendy's post. I got bored early and then thought, "Should that really happen with a copywriter's profile? That can't be a good sign."

Lol that's hillarious. Yes I realize the $100 thing may seem gimmicky.

 

I'm testing the idea out. And yeah my profile is really long, also testing that length.

 

Perhaps, as far as copywriters are concerned, letting your portfolio (results) and Upwork feedback (social proof) do most of the talking is better?

 

I appreciate your observations Wendy.
