We will be happy if upwork going to add "sponsor" feature as Elance. This the best oppurtinity those who want to get more jobs using. when we applied on Elance as sponsor we got 70% extra job. whist we also applied for regular job and wining chance was 10% so, we want to get this feature if possible. thanks
No. "We" will not be. You might be. Most of the freelancers are doing just fine not having to pay for their application to be moved to a top of an already arbitrarily ordered list.
About the freelancer proposals, client select the freelancer based in criteria like job success history on Upwork, qualifications and perhaps country for clutural reasons and timezone coincidence in some works.Sponsored freelance proposals are simply not in the spirit of Upwork, and I like it. The presence of the ability to buy the client first viewing would make me doubt of the integrity of Upwork. And about the client selector, the secret is to bid on jobs that match your experience stated in profile, and to have good Job Sucess Score and good feedbacks.
