    Sorry if this isn't the right section for this, wasn't sure where else to post.

    I have an impressive looking portfolio on my website, which seems to sell my services extremely well when people see it (the elance portfolio isn't nearly as effective). I would like to post it as part of my pitch when I bid. Something like:
    Blah blah blah
    Blah blah blah
    To see our work please check out our portfolio at http://www.mysite.com/portfolio.php
    Blah blah blah

    I've read elance's regulations, but this seems to be a gray area. They do say not to list contact information when bidding, but this isn't really the same thing as going "please visit our website and speak to our sales team". A lot of people are definitely doing this, but I would like to know if anyone has some deeper insight. Has anyone gotten in trouble for something like this?
