I want to create an agency to offer different services as a team, but I don’t want to lose my profile as a freelancer (it’s a very successful profile and I’d like to keep applying to certain jobs as a freelancer). So I have a couple of questions:
- Can I still apply with my freelancer profile to Jobs?
- What will happen with my feedback from previous jobs, My Stats and my Top Rated batch?
Thanks so much!
When you create an agency, you have a choice of setting your status in it as exclusive or non-exclusive. If you are an exclusive member of the agency, all jobs you do will be under the agency and the payments will go to the agency account. If you are a non-exclusive member, you will be able to choose whether you want to apply for a job under the agency or as an individual freelancer. In both cases feedback for new jobs will show on your freelancer profile and feedback you received so far will remain.
As an owner of the agency, you will be able to access your agency's My Stats page.
