Rate guidance?

Now recently, when I apply to some jobs there's a rate proposed to me. It's a lot higher than what I have now. And when I click on this it shows me "increase your earnigns" short text and a link that leads to


Two days ago there was a graph about how number of freelancers in my field is less than number of jobs.

I'm confused because I don't know if this calculation is real or is it like many calculations unreasonable (in past "perfect match/fit" jobs that weren't perfect fit at all.). If I knew for sure this is true (high demand for freelancers like me) I would raise my hourly rate. I don't know. I don't get invitations that much so I presume demand isn't high enough.


Did you notice rate guidance? What do you think of it? Will you raise your rate?

Don't correct my grammar!

Hi Vesna,


You can find more details about the Rate Tip feature and how it's calculated in the recent announcement Lena posted.
