Hi Upwork team

I hope you'll be fine. 

I am new on Upwork. I have a question. Can we share Behance link as portfolio in proposal? Because many clients wants that share your portfolio. 

 

Thank you so much

Hi Muhammad,

 

Yes, you can share links to external portfolios when you submit a proposal. Portfolios are an important part of a freelancer’s bidding process to show off their past work and their potential to complete a future project. That is why we are not prohibiting the sharing of external links to personal portfolios or other websites that provide examples of past work. We recognize that some of these links might include contact information and ways to identify and contact you outside of the Upwork platform. When you share these outside links, please remind potential clients to only communicate with you through Upwork until a contract is in place.

Thank you so much sir for quick response. I was so confused about it that due to this, my account will not be blocked.

 

Sir I have one more question please. 

When I gave interview to my first client then I got 10 free connects as bonus and I received notification that you will get 10 free connects bonus after each interview until 50. But after 4-5 connects, I didn't get free connects on each interview. Can you please explain this about connects.

 

 

Thank you

Hi Muhammad,

 

A bonus of 10 free Connects will be automatically added to your account within 24 hours if you fullfilled all these steps:

  •  Submit a proposal to a job
  •  Receive a request from a client to interview
  •  Respond, connect, and earn a bonus of 10 Connects!

We are not awarding Connects in cases where you are invited to interview for a job post without submitting a proposal first. 

 

If you feel like you need more Connects to send more proposals, feel free to purchase more. Please check the options available to you and learn more about acceptable billing methods for paying memberships.

 

Thank you!

Thanks for that response, I really need to show my Behance profile as a designer and I read many UpWork´s discussions where Top solution authors said that it is against the TOS, even tho Upwork gives us the possibility of attaching the Behance link at the bottom of our profile..

I will have your answer as a certificate that this is something we can do without any worries.

I just included links to Behance/Youtube in my Profile Overview (way at the top) and received a URL error. Where is this "Profile" that can accept outside links?

Thanks
Jim

Hi Jim,

 

Thanks for sharing. You will not be able to add links to external sites in your profile's overview section. Just to elaborate on what Pradeep previously mentioned, you can add these links to the portfolio section of your profile. Feel free to check out this help article to learn more.
