Name of the Client

I've noted the name of the client is displayed 'after' I submit a proposal. Would there be a means to see their name without submitting a proposal first? My guess is, no, but I wanted to ask.

No. If the client name is listed they would be slammed with emails from all over begging to be hired for the project. Similar incidents have happened in the past when the client inadvertently put their contact info in the job posting.

The thing is that I have seen in communications the value of being able to put someone's name to personalize a proposal- how can we do that with limited information?  As a freelancer, I want to deliver proposals that will get me results.

If the client has made at least five hires, it's in someone's feedback or the job description. "Need a logo for Greg P Associates in Boston" is pretty specific. Also, "Greg P at GP Associates is a great client!" With a few clues, I can find the name even without that. "New firm in Boston specializing in fly excrement purification needs ..." How many can there be?

Indeed. In the feedback, the freelancer name the individual they worked with, and more often than not, named the organization or individual who posted.  Thanks.

Hi Bill I don't know you... but I know people have been missing you so it's good to see you. Also your post made me laugh, so thanks.
