It may take 48 hours for connects to be credited to your account after receiving the badge. May I know when you received the Rising talent badge?
I was under the impression that when you receive rising talent status, in addition to the 30 free connects, you also receive an email offer to invite your outside clients to upwork with no service fee. When can I expect to receive this email so that I may forward my unique link to my client?
You are right and I'm going to follow up with the team about your unique link to invite a client. We'll have the email sent to you as soon as possible.
