If you want to create an agency to help market the services of a team you’ve created, you’ll first need to create a freelancer account for the person who will be the agency owner.
Once that account is activated
- Go to Settings > Contact Info
- Scroll down to Additional accounts
- Select New Agency Account
After you create your agency, the Account Menu will be where you can switch between your personal and agency account views. A person can only “own” one agency on Upwork. You won’t be able to make another one.
