Project Catalog

Hi Upwork team, 

I submitted the project on 6 march and second on 26 March but they are still in pending for approval. Please check their status and guide me. I'll be thankful for your kind cooperations.

ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Hi Ak,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. Allow me to explain how  Project Catalog works. Firstly, we review all project listings, including consultations, before publishing them on Project Catalog to help ensure a quality platform that helps you attract quality clients, and we promote Project Catalog on client pages.

 

Once your project listing is published, the project will display on your Upwork profile. You can also share the projectโ€™s URL in your profileโ€™s description and on your social media accounts for even more visibility. Your projectโ€™s overview consists of its title, category, project attributes, and search tags. The information you include here is your first impression to prospective clients, so youโ€™ll want it to shine. Feel free to check this help article for more details. Please allow up to five business days for your project to be reviewed.

 

 

NOTICE:

We are currently receiving more projects for review than usual. Please allow us longer than usual to review your project.

You're inquiring about the message that reads, 'Sorry, you cannot purchase projects in Project Catalog using this account.' This is not actually an issue. Your catalog is currently active. This message simply indicates that you can't purchase your own catalog because it belongs to you. When a client views your catalog, they won't see this message on their end.

I still don't have a grasp on how to go about this project Catalog as a Proofreader /Editor. It's also got a huge traffic, all jammed up with unsorted out issues.

Am I understanding this correctly?

Upwork Project Catalogs are priced hourly not fixed price.

If there is a fixed-price option, I do not see it. 

Can anyone enlighten me on this topic?

 

Thanks

Hi there, I am new at Upwork I have created 2 projects and the two projects are approved by the Upwork team. Then when I searched in the project section then could not show my project in search results. I checked all pages but I cannot find my project. How I can solve the problem? Please, someone help me.

Hi Md Juwel,

 

Here are some tips we can provide to improve the visibility of projects:
 

  1. Add a specific keyword to the project title. Think of specific search terms or keywords that clients may be using when searching for services and incorporate those in the title/description. Looking at the user's title includes too many keywords.
  2. Add keywords to the project description too to increase project conversion

 
When clients search for projects, the project ranking depends on the search query, talent quality, and the relevancy of the project.

 
Our search is based on several factors that continue to evolve. We cannot disclose exactly what makes up the rules for a search order, and those rules are likely to change, so any specific advice we could give you would be short-lived. Search is no longer mainly static, meaning it always stays the same. Depending on marketplace activity across jobs and contractors, a contractor's search position will likely ebb and flow.
 
Also, you can share his Catalog projects on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter, or just copy the link and post it elsewhere. 
As long as your project is set to visible when clicking the 3 dot icon, you can select "Share" > then select the option that works best for you.

Hello, Community.

 

When creating a project in Project Catalog, I cannot see a fixed pricing option. Only hourly is there. But while roaming in other freelancers' profiles, I found out they have fixed prices for the different tiers/packages of their project catalog. 

 

The solution to this would be great for me. Thanks.

Hi Abdullahil,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. Please know that project pricing plans are kind of similar to milestones on fixed-price contracts. Youโ€™ll choose predetermined pricing for each project. Project prices can range from as little as $5 to as much as $500,000.

 

The price of your project must take into account the delivery days and revisions. To help you set up the pricing for your projects, please check this help article.

Hi, I have this question. How much Projects I could submit as a Freelancer Plus and for Agency Plus?

Thanks to all.

Hi Gustavo,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. The number of projects you can publish isn't based on your membership plan. You can have up to 20 projects total in active/review status at once on your Freelancer and Agency profiles. You can also have another 20 in draft form.  To learn more about Project Catalog, please click here.

ef6416b9_0-1699892181294.png

 

Hi Hatice,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. Please be aware that Project Catalog submissions have a five-business-day goal to review new project submissions. Your project remains in the queue for review and should be picked up by the team soon. In the meantime, feel free to check the articles in this section to learn more about how Project Catalog works.

 

Additionally, as a freelancer, your profile picture has to accurately represent who you are; it obviously shouldn't be a photo of a place, a design, an object, or someone or something else (also, misrepresenting who you are goes against our Terms of Service.) You may want to check this help article to learn how to choose a good profile picture.

Is anyone having any success with getting orders from the Project Catalog? I only have one posted, had it for months even boosting it, zero views. Perhaps my project sucks! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I was thinking about adding at least 5 more within the next week. 

 

Here is what is slowing me down from investing the hours to post several projects. I looked at a lot of your profiles and I noticed freelancers with other projects don't seem to be getting any jobs either from the project catalog. If you have any projects in the project catalog section, how is it going for you? Have you had any takers? Share your thoughts.

I am creating my first project and trying to upload the project image but it keeps saying it cannot be read even though the image is perfectly clear. 

 

How can this be resolved?

Hi Orhan,

 

Thank you for reaching out and reporting this. Please be aware that we scale images on Project Catalog to 1000x750 pixels, which is a 4:3 ratio. If your imageโ€™s original pixel number is significantly larger or smaller, or the original size is a much different ratio, it may not look good when scaled. Small pictures may look pixelated (blurry or fuzzy) when enlarged, for example.

 

Please ensure that you've followed the instructions and guidelines provided in this help article. Then, let us know if the issue persists with a screenshot of what you can see from your end; we'll look further into that for you.

Hello Upwork, 

Yesterday I created a project catalog and it is waiting for pending approval after 18 hours, it was approved but my problem is that the project catalog price continue button is disabled, and above the continue button it is written Sorry, you cannot purchase projects in Project Catalog using this account. 

How can I solve this issue?

Hi Abu,

 

Thank you for your message. I see that your project catalog is already approved and users are able to click the continue button as seen here. Feel free to message us if you need further assistance.

Hello,

I have created new project. But, I am not able to edit it or change it.

Please let me know how can I edit this.

 

Screenshot 2023-12-04 at 19.10.45.png

Hi Vivek,

 

It looks like you're viewing the project from a client's perspective hence the edit option is not available. Kindly go to this page then click on the menu button on the right side of the project you want to edit.

Hello Annie,

Thanks for the reply.

But, I don't want to edit my approved project. I want to edit my draft project. There is no menu there.

Thanks.

Hi Vivek,

 

I checked and there should be an option to edit Projects that are under your Draft tab. You should be able to click on the three dots on the right side and then choose the Edit option. Here is a screenshot for reference. 

 

Let us know if you need further assistance.

Hi everyone!

I'm trying to turn off my consultation, but I can't figure out how.

I only see the pencil icon near it for editing, I also searched in all the editing steps but I can't find any point where I can choose to turn it on or off.

 

Someone can help me figure this out, please?

 

Thank you!

Hi Rosella,

 

Thank you for your message. You can turn off the Consultation by going to the My Project Dashboard page and clicking on the slider. Feel free to message us if you have further questions.

As I'm a WordPress developer my main niche is Design and Development. But I have extra skills too which are one-page SEO, adding Google search console, sitemap, and schema markup to rank websites into Google. In that case, Can I publish a Project on Upwork? I Want to provide this one-page SEO service with a Google search console, sitemap, etc.

 

 

Thank You 

Hi Md,

 

Yes, you can create a project for whichever services you're confident you can provide to your potential clients. You can learn more about Project Catalog here

I saw a yellow sign on my project catalogue that I can't receive orders on it,  and I'm really confused here

Hi Elizabeth,

 

You have to make your projects visible so clients can place an order if they're interested:
