Mark, nobody wants to know what you wear when you are freelancing. 


Even more so what I am not wearing...

Ya, this is nutty. It should be one connect for one proposal.

 

6 connects for a $500 job is silly. = 20% + almost $1 in connects.

And the client posted that this is his absolute limit ($500).

 

For $14.99 I get 70 connects which is really 11 proposals.

So, if you get 10% of the jobs you bid on, your connects have paid for themselves many times over.

Actually, if saving a few dollars is important to you, you can buy connects in bundles instead of paying for a plus membership - it's 78 connects for $11.70.

 

Anyway didn't you say awhile back that it would be better not to pay for connects, and you were going to leave Upwork and spend your money on Google ads instead? How did that go?

How many proposals does the project page say have already been submitted on this project, Rahul?

I doubt Rahul will find a job post from summer 2019
