Hello Person Concerned,
I am new in Upwork and i would love to know how some gets his first connects. i want to submit a proposal for ajob and it requires me to have 2 connects. Kindly, assist.
Hi Felix,as i discovered you have to actively choose a subscription before you get any connects. usually by clicking the green button of one of the subscriptions. You then immediately receive your connects.
Thanks for the response. i guess i need to pick the membership plans - plus which costs $10 and it will be billed against me. Id that what you meant or something else?
I would just like to clarify that you do not need to pay $10 to get Connects. You may opt for the Freelancer Basic plan which included free 60 connects every month. The Freelancer Plus plan, at $10 per month, issues an additional 10 connects on top of the free 60 connects every month.
You may read up on this help article for more information on the Freelancer Plus and Freelancer Basic plans.
If you subscribe to Membership Plus, you'll be able to purchase additional connects and benefit from connects rollover. Check out this help article for more information about that.
It is recommended that freelancers are selective about what jobs they apply to, only apply to jobs that they are absolutely sure they can complete and take time to craft well-written and targeted proposals.
