Hi Nikita,

 

I just created an agency and invited my team to join my agency. I have sent invites to them but no one received any invites. I have followed the instructions and invited them using their email addresses. I don't know what to do next.

 

Regards, 

 

Michael H.

Hi Michael,

 

I am sorry about the issue with adding members to your agency. Could you please submit a ticket to Customer Support with more information about which users you invited to join your agency so the team could investigate the issue with missing email invitations?

I just upgraded from freelancer to an agency, because I'm trying to actually BUILD one and am in need of part-time support for specific skill sets and verticals. So, am I understanding correctly that I can't post a job as an agency, AND I can't reach out to freelancers without having their contact information, but I CAN post a job as a client?  Do I need to therefore set up a separate client account?

 

This entire process is a bit convoluted and not conducive to helping either Upwork or it's members share and gain business!

Hi Annette, 

 

If you need to hire a freelancer to help you with certain tasks or complete assignments for you, you should do it using a client-company. Here is more information about how to do it.

 

As an agency owner, you can add members to your team and manage bidding, interviews and payment processes, while your agency contractors focus on completing the work for the clients. Here is more information about agencies.

Hi Nilesh,

 

Your Freelancer profile is already associated with your Agency, please check your agency badge and link on your freelancers profile. You can also find your name listed on your agency's roster.

 

Creating duplicate accounts is a violation of our ToS, so please contact Customer Support and our team will assist you with closing the second one.

 

Please have a look at more information about managing and working for an Agency here and here.

Hi Nilesh,

 

Yes, upgrading to a Agency Plus plan will enable you to add other freelancers to your agency, but just to clarify that it won't allow you to create additional accounts of your own.

I've been reading this forum and just need one thing clarified: is paying for an Agency PLUS plan the ONLY way to be able to add other freelancers to my agency? If so, this should clearly be stated when creating an agency, as I see no purpose in offering a free agency plan if it can only have one member. If not, could you please let me know how to add freelancers to my agency? I have tried everything except for posting a job (which isn't allowed) and nothing seems to work. Thank you.
