How Do I View Available Projects by "Newest First"?
Instead of letting writers see projects by “newest first”, our goal is to optimize the platform to provide the best experiences to the best clients and the best writers. To that end, we give writers the ability to find the "best" projects that meet what the writer is looking for. Check out our article on "How Do I Find The Best Projects?"

How Can I Tell If Clients Prefer Quality or Lower Cost?
Writers can get a good sense of whether clients prefer quality or lower cost by looking at client quality metrics that come with each project. We show the total amount the client has spent, and the total number of jobs completed. This will give a sense of how much the customer pays per job. In addition, if other writers rate a customer highly, that is a good indication the customer prefers quality over cost.
How Long Do Clients Have to Review Proposals?
Writers have full control over this. When proposing a job, you get to define the length of time your proposal remains active. This gives customers a good nudge to either accept or decline a proposal. After this deadline passes, the job proposal expires and the client cannot accept or decline the proposal.
How Can I Get My Proposals Accepted?
Here are a few tips on proposing jobs:
- Propose on jobs that do not have any proposals, or have a low number of proposals. This gives you a better chance of winning the job.
- Tell the client why you’re an authority, tell them what you plan to write, and if possible link to a few examples of your work that is related.
- Build your writer quality metrics. Customers see quality metrics every time they review a proposal, and it factors heavily into which proposal they choose.
- Review our recommended best practices for successful job proposals.
Do Clients Only Take Proposals With The Lowest Bids?
No! Many clients choose higher priced job proposals to work with proven, quality writers versus going with a job proposal from writers with lower quality scores. The best way to get your proposal accepted is to build your writer quality metrics and to make great proposals.
