How do you budget your connects for the month?

Hi George,


If you receive 60 Connects per month, proposals can cost as little as 0 Connects, if you are invited to apply for the job, but most are 2 Connects, meaning you can send up to 30 proposals each month.

I joined yesterday and figuring out the 'Connects' thing - I'm on a free plan, do I pay for using my connects?

Hi Suchi,


I see you already received and started using your Connects as part of the Basic membership plan, which is free. I'd strongly advise you to review resources we shared in this thread, in order to maximize the effect of the proposals you're submitting and learn how to successfully use the platform.

Hi Juliana, 

Connects are virtual tokens or money you use to submit proposals for jobs. You may read more about how to use connects in this help article.
