I'm Adri, newly upworker!
I don't use this platform frequently since I don't have connects to propose bid on projects.
Is there another way to work here, without being through connects? (I can't invest in them yet)
My question is ... should I close my account on this platform?
I read you!
Nice day to the community!

Submitting a proposal has a financial cost, just like the other expenses you incur as a freelancer running your own business. Freelancer Basic plan doesn't include free connects so you'll need to purchase them if you'd like to send proposals. If you aren’t able to use a credit card or prepaid card or you don’t have an Upwork balance, in many cases you’ll be able to use PayPal. To see the options available to you, click here.
I am a new member as well, and I would like to ask for some tips maybe on how to get clients. I have four proposals so far, but no responses and a few hours have gone by.
Can you let me know If I can somehow improve my profile?
I am a new member as well and looking for advice from current upworkers. Did you advance with any job through the platform? Looking forward to connect with you and learn more.
I apologize for the delay in response. I reviewed your profile and you are off to a good start. I have a few suggestions for you:
Here are some additional tips for writing a great Overview.
I hope this helps!
If you feel like you need more Connects to send more proposals, feel free to purchase more. This can vary based on your location, but all Upwork users will be able to purchase Connects with a credit card or prepaid card. If you aren't able to use a credit card or prepaid card or you don't have an Upwork balance, in many cases you'll be able to use PayPal. Check the options available to you and learn more about the acceptable billing methods for paying memberships.
