Hi Nathan,

 

You can post a job, invite a freelancerinterview and negotiate with them before you send an offer and hire a freelancer you found to be perfect for your project

 

We are also testing Direct Messages feature with Upwork Plus clients.

 

You can check some helpful resources to give you an idea about how to get started as a client. 

 

Let us know if you need any further assistance.

 

Thank you.

Yes!

It is easy to message a freelancer.

 

Without hiring them.

 

Just create a private job posting and use it to send an invitation to the freelancer.

 

This only offers you two of you the opportunity to have a conversation. It does not commit anybody to anything. It does not cost anything.
