You’ve just received some excellent feedback that can boost your chances of getting more clients if you share it on Linked in, Twitter or Facebook.
Unfortunately, the pop-up window that allows you to share has 2 options.
Not Now and Share.
If you choose not to share the feedback image now, the feedback image is gone and there’s no way to re-share it.
At least for now, there’s no official way to do it from Upwork.
Fortunately, the anatomy of the link that generates the feedback image below consists of your freelancer profile, some sort of social media code and the contract that you worked on to receive the feedback.

You can easily regenerate the image above by following these simple steps and share it to your social media profiles to get more credibility for your services.
If you prefer to watch a step-by-step video tutorial, there’s one below.
How to Create the Upwork Feedback Shareable Link Even when you Close the Pop-up.
The link comprises;
i) Your freelancer profile as seen below and you can get this from your Upwork profile.
You can get your Upwork profile link from the URL bar or from the right of your availability.
Here’s how it looks like
ii) You need to add the social media code and contract id and it looks like this
You should now have a link that consists of your Upwork profile URL and the code above.
iii) The missing piece is the Contract ID.
To get a contract Id for a recently closed contract, you need to navigate to My Jobs > All Contracts and once the contracts load, click on the contract with the feedback you want and copy the contract ID.
Once you click on the contract that you want, you’ll need to click on Terms and Settings.
From the Terms and Settings page, you can either copy your contract ID from the URL or at the bottom section of the page.
The contract ID looks something like 23440579.
Here’s an image of the Contract ID from the URL and at the bottom of the Terms and Settings page of the contract.
iv) This is the final step.
Since we have all the parts to create the Upwork feedback Image, let’s combine all the text to make the image below.
Here's the complete link to create the feedback Image https://www.upwork.com/o/profiles/users/_~0155bd76867d4641f6/?wom=gfbli&crid=23440579
You can share this link on your social media and by default, it will generate the feedback image.
Here’s a sample of the Upwork Feedback Image on Facebook
Here’s a sample of the Upwork Feedback Image on LinkedIn
Feel free to try it out on your social media profiles and see if you’ll get similar images to what I’ve already elaborated on.
This method works even if a contract is from when Upwork was oDesk. I’ve tested it and the result is the same.
Here’s an example of a contract from 2012.
And here’s an Upwork Feedback image from the Contract illustrated above.
The process above works even when the contract is old and it can help you reshare old feedback and get you, new clients, fast.
The major disadvantage of this Upwork Feedback Image is that it cuts off extra written feedback due to its limited size of 800x418.
As you’ve seen in the image at the top, valuable written feedback may be cut off and therefore fail to deliver the intended message of other clients seeing your work and hiring you.
Until a time when Upwork will have the option to automatically create a shareable image from a job, this is a simple yet effective way to manually share Upwork Feedback on Social Media which can get you more clients.
