Marketing your skills is a time consuming and not cheap propostion esp. when looked at from hourly billing rates. Upwork, like other platforms, bear the cost of marketing en masse. The cost of writing a proposal either in time or connects is minimal when put into perspective.


This is so true. Real world marketing is TOUGH. Even marketing yourself on the internet is a drag. You run up costs quickly and eat up a ton of time. That's the main reason I appreciate Upwork. Yeah, payment protection is nice, but I see Upwork's major benefit as connecting freelancers and clients.
