I've a client outside of upwork with whom I want to do business on upwork as it will grow my profile. I want to ask about the procedure to do that as I'm new to upwork. Is it, he is going to post a job and then I'm going to bid on it or is there any other way proceed?
And how I can take recommendations from him?
You can share your profile URL with your client and they can click on the Hire button. If they are not a member yet, they will be prompted to sign up firths, and then they will be able to hire you. Thank you.
Thanks @Goran. There's one other thing related to this Q/A:
The client sent me a proposal and I see that Upwork charges 20% fee and if I'm going to send the Direct contract Upwork is going to charge 3.4% fee, so I want to ask that what is the difference between Direct contracts that I send and the one that client is going to send?
