R u sure 60 is plenty? Lot's of people want much more. 60 means u can apply for 30 job in month.

True 60 allows for 30 applications. That means choose carefully, bid on relevant jobs only or buy additional connects. The latter takes care that you  bid on relevant jobs only. That's the purpose of limiting the number of connects.

60 connects is being plenty if it would be 1 for 1. it called 60 connects but actually 30 connects/proposal get 1 FL.  1 for 2 connects needed. It is the 1st poor system of upwork from beging & day by day upwork is loosing their freelancer, clients & reputation. Freelancer(FL) will leave the upwork soon rather they doesnt change the poor system of connect policy. I am already disappointed about upwork & i have left.

Mr Saiful, I agree with you completely. Many clients and freelancers have disapproved the system and have left upwork.

If you think you need more, the best thing I think is to pay for rollover, which is $10/month.

+1 and then if you're super successful and need even more just pay another $1

If you have to bid on 30 jobs without getting a single client, then there's a problem.  It tells me that there are a lot of unqualified people who want work.  You're playing odds if your acceptance rate is that low.  A client shouldn't have to sift through a bunch of garbage proposals.


Another thing is that you should be building clientele over time.  You should need fewer and fewer connects as time goes on.


The cold hard truth is that there are way more freelancers than there is work.  That means that the market needs to be adjusted to balance everything out.  Not everyone should be able to get work, even if they have some skills and willingness to work.
