availability badge

Hello, there was a long gap in my work pattern, now that I have returned and would like to begin work I am not getting any success with my job proposals. Let me know:

 

1) Is it because of the reason the Availability Badge is turned off? 

 

- i tried but couldnt switch it on as the message said I am not earning so I can't

- So whats the solution for that?

 

2) Also, can anyone share links to any tutorials related to writing Upwork proposals and pitching in to the clients? I may as well check out those to improve myself.

 

Thanks!!

Good evening sir/ma

 

Please I have an issue with my availability badge, I can't on it...my availability is set to private

Please help me

Hi Chinze,

 

I believe that you are referring to your profile's visibility and not the Availability Badge. Please know that these are two different things, you can learn more about the Availability Badge here. That said, I've reset your profile visibility so that is now public. You can check this help article to learn why it can be switched to private.

Hi, having trouble activating my profile visibility. I can't turn it on even though I have enough connects. Thank you for your assistance in advance. 

Hi Danica Anne,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. I have checked and it looks like you can't turn on the availability badge because your profile is set to private or unavailable. 

 

I took the liberty of resetting your profile visibility back to Public Status. You may retry turning your Availability Badge on and it should be working just fine now. Let me know if you need further assistance.
