How to earn Connects without payment?

I am a new freelancer on Upwork. What are the ways to earn Connects without payment? And how many Connects do you spend for your available profile per week?

There are various ways in which you can earn more Connects. Please check the following below:

 

  • You’ll receive 30 free Connects if you earn a Rising Talent badge
  • You’ll receive free Connects (the number can vary) when you win an interview with an established client on Upwork. (To prevent gaming, we aren’t sharing all the details of what we consider “established.” In general, it’s a client who has hired and spent on Upwork in the past.)
  • You’ll get a one-time Connects bonus if you complete an Upwork Skill Certification

You may want to check this help article to better understand how Connects works.
