I’ve signed a contract with upstack recently. For those who don’t know, upstack is essentially, a company that has access to a network of freelancers and acts as a 3rd party mediator between clients and freelancers. They sold it to me as “we’ll find clients for you and you will meet their needs with your expertise”.
That all sounds great and to be fair to them, they did warn me it would be unlikely that I would immediately get a project to work on. But a few days in and I’m starting to wonder if this could really work? I haven’t even heard of a potential job but I’ve been asked to do 4 or 5 different skill assessments. I’ve seen some people post on their channels about not having had work for a year or something. I’m honestly really new at this freelance thing and I’m trying to make it work, but I’m not sure how to do that.
Has anyone had experience with upstack? Should I stick with them or are there better ways to get clients?
If any of you all feel the need to share some more general tips on how to make this work, I will gladly take them!
