All notification and matching for your skills will be send to your email and sometimes if the clients directly email you, we need to reply as soon as possible to their email. So anytime you are not around or still doing something your auto response will handle it and notify the client right away. If you already free to reply them back please do it so. Ask what kinds of projects they want from you and how long will be the projects needed to finish. From this, we can prepare a timeline for each project you will receive from clients.
