HI Everyone at Upwork,
I have the freelancer plus account. I would like to offer some suggestions for improvement.
Maybe its just me but when I see the bid range, then go to my proposal, Im so ingrossed in my cover letter that by the time Im ready to pop the price in I have forgotten the bid range and either have to go back to the job posting, to view it again. Some times I close these tabs as I may get 5, 10 or 15 job postings at the proposal stage ready for my cover letters It saves me a lot of time if I do them in batchs when Im in a creative mood. Thats my formula anyway..... I have anaylised my winning bids & 90% of the replys have come hours if not days later so i feel there usually is no rush to submit a proposal.
My actual question is "Could the bid range be in the proposal page as well, maybe near our pricing section?"
Maybe there are more suggestions that would enhance the Plus Account.... I notice on other sites it actually shows the Bid amount, Freelancers Name and Cover Letter. (Thats going a bit too far )
Great suggestion, I know I have done the same thing being so focused on what you are going to put in your proposal that you forget the bid range. Working with dual monitors I am able to have the job posting on one monitor while I prepare my proposal. This allows me to view not only the bid range but the requirements for the project.
