On Upwork As a Freelancer and As a Client

I used Upwork as a freelancer and as a client. I want to share a few things:

For Freelancers

For Clients

  1. Please pay well and pay on time and don't ask for free work. If you can't afford it now, wait for some time till you can.
  2. I ask the people I work with to charge me for the chat/communication time. If the job exceeds the agreed time in hourly work, I will pay for these extra few hours. They will be happy to work and deliver well. They feel appreciated.
  3. Please don't capitalize your words (YOU, MUST, NOW). It makes people nervous. I once fired a client because of this. Be nice.
  4. Try to be specific and know what you want, and if you don't, please ask for suggestions, and people will be happy to help. But please don't start every day with new changes and requirements that are entirely different.

Of course, these are not exclusive to Upwork but with any channel between an independent and a client.
