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.
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!
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.
I have created my Agency profile and before that i have already created one Freelancer profile so now i would like to invite my other freelancer profile to join my Agency so please share with me correct path that how do i proceed to complete this action.
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.
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.
