This is a great idea that I have thought about it for some time now, a way to showcase some of our best testimonials. BUT to me this is not the right implementation, why should we ask a client for a second testimonial when they already left feedback? 

 

Simply let us select from our job history the testimonials we want to feature, this will also be more legitimate. Otherwise, how can some proof they actually worked together?

I got the testimonial from the client. It is still in under review. How much time it will take to show it on profile.

Hi Raghav,

 

While we are excited to share that the feature is proving to be very popular unfortunately we've received so many requests that it's taking us a while to review each one. As a result, please allow 10 business days for your request to be reviewed. We apologize for the delay, but please know we are still testing and optimizing this beta feature. Thanks!

Hi Bilal,

 

Were you referring to LinkedIn profile? If so, please note that they need to have a LinkedIn profile. 

 

Thank you.

Why do they need a Linkedin profile? I've done a lot of work for people that aren't connected to Linkedin. It's hard enough asking people to take time to write a review in the first place. Asking them to create a Linkedin profile just to do so is a whole other level of annoying. Is there no way around this?

Hi Amanda,

 

You can still use your profile overview or portfolio section to include endorsements and testimonials from people you worked with outside of Upwork. Make sure not to share any private or contact information.

 

Thank you!

How do I use my profile overview or portfolio section to include testimonials?  Would I simply be copying/pasting clients' reviews?  
How does UpWork verify that a testimonial I include is legitimate?  

What should a client include in a testimonial besides a great review of my work?  Type of project?  Industry?  Anything else?

 

Thank you for your help.

Hi Robin,

 

You can request testimonials from past clients by going to your profile and clicking on the option to request a testimonial.
