Yes you are 100% correct.

 

Reason 1 : many freelancers - competation - Ready to work for minimum charges.

Reason 2: It's CRM time. all switching towards CRM based apps.  even microsoft reuined lifes of programmers with MVC - world is still confused with versions.

 

Better to switch towards marketings and advertising.  AS I DID. Ha Ha.

I've seen a slowdown in new projects in my specialty - corporate finance and planning - over the past few weeks, but I'm hoping it's just the usual ebb and flow of client activity on Upwork.

For my sector, writer/translator, the problem is not only the hard competition among freelancers, which is normal on a global platform, but above all, it comes from the huge number of clients who don't want to dig deeper into their pockets. I'd be glad to use some connects (and even pay for it Man Very Happy ) if the job ads were really interesting and not just the usual "yeah, I'm on a budget here but this is a long term opportunity, mate"

I even flagged a translation gig this morning where the client put a 5$ budget but wrote in the description: it will be paid actually 4$.

I didn't bid on it, I've flagged it as inappropriate and UW has deleted the offer less than 30 minutes after. Plus I would't have bidded on it for 5$ too... But others freelancers would have and therefore, these clients will always have their jobs done with the cheapeast rate. That s*** but once again, we are on a global platform.

True. upwork should consider minimum bid values to be fixed based on work.
