    From the email
    If you receive new responses to your project, you will be notified by email. In this email, there is always a direct link to your account overview. Here you can then respond to the quote/response.

    You can immediately cancel a project by choosing "Cancel project" next to the project under "Actions." You can also ask for more information first by clicking "Respond" at the bottom of the response.

    Freelancers have made the effort to respond or submit their own quotes. Therefore, always inform them of your choice and try to explain it as clearly as possible, even if you have chosen someone else. This can be done very easily through our website. This way, the professionals who did not make it this time can gain more insight into the considerations you make as a requestor and continue to improve themselves.

  • No, personal information will not be shown on the project. Only your city of residence is visible; this is how they know if the request is suitable. Therefore, this is reserved for a select group of people and not just every random visitor to our website. Of course, the customer service of ProLinker.com also has access to your contact information for the purpose of asking questions in response to your request if necessary. ProLinker.com handles your personal data with the utmost diligence. For more information please see our Privacy Policy.

  • You may have received fewer quotes than expected.

    The two major causes for this are that no budget was specified and/or the combination of the requested, and the budget is unrealistic. These causes can be divided into the following steps::

    No budget specified
    When requesting quotes, many people do not want to mention an amount, because they want to avoid having offers below this price. However, being open about your price shows that you are a serious party to do business with. Most importantly, it ensures that you get offers that meet your expectations. To create some leeway in the prices and receive several offers, you can also indicate your budget with a minimum and maximum amount. If you have trouble estimating a reasonable budget for your request, you can always contact us. We will advise you as best we can.

    Budget and request do not match
    Many requests include a demanding functionality package or work of large scale. For example, in a request to build a new website. Many different functionalities are mentioned, but the budget only takes into account the basics. It may seem to professionals that you want to get a cheap deal. You can avoid this by clearly distinguishing between the required functionalities and the desired functionalities in your request. You can also receive appropriate quotations by specifying which components you want to see in the quotation in your request.

    If none of the above applies to you, please feel free to contact us and we can work together to find out what the reason is.

  • After you have completed the project with a freelancer, you can close the project. Inside your account, next to the project, under "Actions," click on "Complete Project." Now you will see a screen where you can give the freelancer feedback on the service they provided. Additionally, you can add a few lines of feedback. Please fill this out carefully! The feedback is vital for ProLinker.coms because they will be judged on it by future project clients!

  • After you have registered as a freelancer and upgraded your account to a standard or Premium account, you can submit a quote on a project after logging in with your information. Submitting a quote is free of charge. To do so, click on the project of your choice under "Current Projects" and then click on "Respond."

  • When you register as a freelancer, you will select a category that you work in. Additionally, you can select additional categories and headings you would like to work on in your account. After registering, you will automatically receive all matching projects to your email address from us.

    You accomplish this by adjusting your notification settings. To do this, go to "Settings" within your account. Under the "Email" tab, click on your preferred subject area and then your preferred subcategories. Remember to click "Save" after each category. Afterward, you will also be findable in our database for potential project clients within these categories.

  • If you do not receive an email although you have indicated that you would like to, this may be because these emails are blocked by your spam filter or the spam filter of your internet provider, for example. Look in the spam folder of your email account and find an email from ProLinker.com. Click on the email and then click on "This message is safe" or "Wanted" or "This message is wanted." Also, we recommend adding the sender info@prolinker.com to your contacts. This way, you can be sure that email from ProLinker.com will always arrive in your inbox in the future!

  • On the homepage, you can view current projects within each category. If you have registered as a freelancer within a specific category, your account will automatically be linked to the appropriate projects. So from then on, you will see all projects relevant to you in your account under "Current Projects."

  • If you are chosen from the quotations provided, the project client will contact you. Alternatively, the project client may contact you for more information before they make the final decision. If the project client chooses you, you will also be informed by email. You can view the status of the project in question within your account at all times.

  • No. Quotes are only visible to the client. Therefore, other freelancers will not see the quote you have submitted.

  • There may be several reasons for this. First, it may be that the notifications for your account are disabled. If that is the case, you can activate them after logging in through the " Settings" tab. Here, you will find the option to indicate your preferences for email notifications. Secondly, the email address you registered with on our website may not match the email address where you want to receive the notifications. Please check your email address under the "Settings" menu button in your account.

  • Occasionally, it can take a while for the project client to make a decision and let us know via the website. Do you think it takes too long?
    We will ask the project client to provide a status update on the project (if it has not been assigned yet) every four days. So you will receive a status update by email as soon as possible.

  • A project client may decide to cancel a project. This can be for several reasons. Maybe the project client has found someone else to work with. However, it is also possible that the project is no longer going to take place.

  • A project is closed when, in the opinion of the project client, a sufficient number of suitable quotations have been received. Some projects are filled very quickly. So be prompt!

  • Go to "Settings" in your account. In the "Email" box, you can customize the notifications. You can also select subcategories here.

  • You can create a profile for free after registration. You can sign up by clicking "Sign Up" on the homepage.

  • A profile page is your personal page and you use it to present yourself to possible clients. This is where you can add information such as your name, address, place of residence, a description of your services, a passport photo, your portfolio, your CV, and your references.

  • You can edit your profile by logging into your account and editing your profile under the menu button "My Profile." Remember to click "Save" at the bottom of the page.

  • You can permanently delete your profile by clicking on "Edit Account" > "Delete Profile" in your account under the "Settings" menu button. NOTE: After you have permanently deleted your profile, all your data on ProLinker.com will be lost. This is not recoverable.

    You can also choose not to be visible (temporarily) in the database. To do so, click on "Do not show my profile in the database." This way, you will no longer be found in the database. You will, however, still be able to receive projects through email.

  • In your account, you have the option to directly search for freelancers yourself under the "ProLinker.coms" menu button. Here, you can directly search for freelancers based on their field of expertise, number of references, minimum rating, availability, etc., and request a quote.

  • Your profile will not appear in the search results until the profile is approved. Your profile should include a passport-sized photograph and include certain basic information, such as your name, address, hometown, and a description of yourself.

  • ProLinker.coms are categorized by field of expertise. Premium subscribers above non-Premium subscribers in the search results. In addition, the more complete a ProLinker.com's profile is, the higher it will appear in the search results. You can see how far your profile is completed by logging into your account. You will see a bar running from 0 - 100%. If you add more information to your profile, you will appear higher in the search results.

  • Once inside your account, click on "My Profile." You can edit your profile information here. You will also find the option to add your portfolio here. Your portfolio can include images, audio files, and text files.

  • ProLinker.com strives to make freelancers as findable as possible for potential clients. Therefore, your profile is automatically made public and consequently indexed by Google. Would you like to avoid opt out? Check the "Do not show my profile in search engines" box under "Settings" in your account.

  • If you know the name of the freelancer, you can type them directly into your address bar after www.prolinker.com. This takes you directly to the profile of a particular freelancer.

  • By getting a Premium subscription you distinguish yourself as a ProLinker.com. Premium subscribers have advantages over non-Premium subscribers. Namely:

    o Premiums rank above non-Premiums in the search results, and thus are more likely to be found by potential clients.
