Introducing Project Catalog™, a New Way for Businesses and Talent to Instantly Work Together

Today, we’re introducing the beta version of Project Catalog™, a brand new way to use Upwork. 

Now you can instantly purchase pre-scoped projects at a fixed price. Need a new website to build your brand, an explainer video to onboard new users, or blog posts to drive your content strategy? Simply find your project in Project Catalog™, click, and buy.

We created Project Catalog™ to help you get started on your most pressing work right away. It’s an additional way to engage with Upwork through an e-commerce-like experience for your most immediate needs. 

Each project is created by the independent talent who offers it, based on their strengths and the work they enjoy most. Project Catalog™ currently includes website development, graphic design, video, digital marketing, and 80+ other in-demand categories. For more complex or ongoing work, you continue to have the option to post a job in our marketplace. 

Clients can select their desired project and get straight to work

As a client, you can explore what’s possible on Upwork and initiate new working relationships quickly with clear expectations about what comes next.

From scope and timing to cost and deliverables, important details are packaged up for you, so you know exactly what to expect—and what it takes to make it happen.  

Mobile view for clients to select projects

You can easily browse Project Catalog™ to find inspiration for your next project, or simply type what you’re looking for into the search bar. When you’re ready, just check out to purchase and get started.

Project Catalog™ provides an additional way to earn on Upwork by allowing independent talent to package their most in-demand services and turn them into powerful new income streams.

As independent talent, you can build a project offering once and land new contracts from it again and again. It’s a simple way to attract more of the work you enjoy doing in an effective and efficient manner.

For each project, you set the scope, price, timing, and requirements. If you like, you can also provide a range of pricing tiers to scale project scope up or down. Once you’ve built a project, it will be available for clients to search and buy through Project Catalog™.
