Upwork Plus membership for freelancers used to be $10 a month if memory serves me right, and now it is $14.99.
Let’s see what do you get for this amount of money:
The most important part of this membership package is related to the number of connects or bids you get – 70.
Let’s say that you aren’t a Plus member on Upwork. To get this number of connects, you will have to pay, how much exactly?
70 connects X $0.15 = $10.5
So, you can save:
$14.99 – $10.50 = $4.49
Regarding the other benefits of this Plus membership, I have to say that I’m not particularly interested:
- I don’t care about the bids of other freelancers who are competing on the same project.
- I don’t need to stand out with a customized profile URL.
- I don’t want to keep my earnings confidential.
Five bucks that Upwork Plus membership allows me to save isn’t enough for me to cover my Netflix subscription. So, thank you Upwork but no thank you.
