Hello there, 

 

I was wondering is it good idea to have a personal portfolio page, that

you can make better portfolio with more text, multimedia and so on. 

And in the section let say about me to have buttom with link to you are Upwork profile. 

Is this good idea and is this interference with upwork rules?

Hi Stefan,

 

You can share the link to your Upwork profile in your social media accounts, blog, website, online portfolio etc. What users aren't allowed is to include links in their profile which contain their direct contact information.

What about testimonials that are earned through Upwork, can you use them to show on you are portfolio website that is linked back to Upwork. For example, if you put them in you are About me page.

Hi Stefan,

 

Yes, you can copy the feedback your clients left but are not allowed to use your clients' name or other identifiable information without their consent.

ok, so my understanding is I can not link my website or even post it in a bid due to it haveing my contact information out side of upwork ? So i will need to make an online portfolio to show case work that I have done outside of upwork, and make sure I dont have contact information on it untill I have done enough work here to fill up my profiles portfolio ?

You can send a link to your website in a proposal. You just can't have a link that includes your direct contact information on your profile.

Reading the new Terms of Use, however, it seems that this may have changed. See the Announcement thread here.

I am not getting this right.
On my UpWork profile, there is a portion named "Portfolio", which allows me to post links to my works outside of UpWork.
Is it prohibited to post links like **Edited for Community Guidelines** or **Edited for Community Guidelines** if one has previous works there?

Note: I've seen profiles with YouTube link, meanwhile, YouTube will definitely contain the Freelancer's contacts in one way or the other, just like the **Edited for Community Guidelines**.
Please clarify this. Thank you.
