So, here's the deal: I ran out of connects already. Being new to Upwork, I only had a Basic Account. Then, I came across a job post minutes ago, which I pretty much am interested in. However, due to lack of connects, I cannot submit a proposal. Is there any way I can contact the employer in a message or email to express my interest for the job personally?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The other thing you can do is upgrade to plus membership. That will cost you $10 but you will get 10 connects plus 2 prorated connects for each day you're already in the billing cycle (that part's a bit complicated, you can read an explanation here: https://support.upwork.com/hc/en-us/articles/211062888-Membership-Plans-Basic-Plus)
I've removed your other thread as it violates the Upwork Community Guidelines. This is only a gentle reminder to please be mindful of the guidelines when posting in the Community.
