If I find that the information in the job offer is too vague for me, I don't bid. Not even if I have connects left over. I just don't bid. And I don't give a **** whether that client is well-established, has a top rating and great feedback or not.
It couldn't be any easier for clients to state what they are looking for. Upwork provides guidelines and a simple layout. A few words and a rough indication of the available budget is all it takes. We'll do the rest.
And honestly, if I can manage to write my weekly shopping list (and write out the individual items rather than just "food") on top of all the usual to-and-froing with clients, then they ****** well can as well!
EDITED TO ADD: I posted this in a completely different thread (topic: insufficient detail in job postings), but it seems to have been misdirected! Sorry, folks. There seems to be a glitch in the system.
Alexandra...it looks like two threads from the same OP were combined by a moderator.
His one thread had to do specifically with Agencies and that they had to be given more options, while his other thread had to do with job postings.
Ah okay. I get it. Thanks, Irene!
I guess I should have looked through the whole thread again, but there was a ring at the door and then I had to make lunch and... You know, the usual daily hassle...
BTW: Have a nice Easter holiday!
60 connects for free or 80 connects for $20 - than is better to be Basic than Plus.
Upwork is like a lottery with 100 bidders per project, more than half with very unrealistic price becouse anyway is free to bid.
$1 per connect and 2 connects per bid - seriously? and more than half projects have budget under $10
