is top rated status important?

I was $100  short in earnings from becoming top rated last year,  and couldnt test the differance myself.

Can anyone  tell if getting top rated badge  made it easier to get offers by doing same type of work?

 

thanks

From my experience, it does help a little. Particularly because clients send me invitations, and they don't usually send invitations for $5 jobs, or when they do they get laughed at! Also, getting an invitation is great because it means you are not limited by connects.

I didn't phrase it clearly in the  opening post, but i mostly meant success rate of your proposals with and without being top rated.

Basically, how highly cliets value it when choosing between freelancers, especially in small/medium size projects

I've seen very little difference, to be honest.

I'm sure it helps, but I've not had a single client mention it to me, and I still get hired at the same rate as everyone else in my category.

I'm not getting jobs more often than I was before. It's stayed about the same. I'm getting better jobs, but I've raised my rates, so I'm sure that's the reason.

 I haven't seen too much difference. However, it may have given me more confidence about my worth. As I've told you before, the real difference was getting reasonable invitations.
