Less time searching, more time working
As a freelance writer, I know the time and subsequent stress of searching for work but having zero options. All that time, which could be used for actual freelance work, wasted on aimless wandering across the web, only to discover illegitimate gigs or broken links.
Freelance Leads, designed by actual freelancers, who I’m going to assume encountered the same issues, have created a platform to match qualified leads with available freelancers.
How it works
To ensure quality and relevant leads, Freelance Leads starts the membership process by asking users to specify their skill-set. Then, they will send the freelancer a weekly curated list of at least 15 available freelance jobs and projects, specific to the identified skill set. From the comprehensive list, users are able to seamlessly contact and reach out to whichever they are interested in the most.
There is currently a Beta program for users to try out that is, of course, free to use. They have asked anyone who signs up for Beta testing to inform them of any issues or “quirks” that need to be smoothed out before the hard launch. For their official release though, there will be a month to month fee, so if you’re a freelancer: get while the getting’s good.
Their website vaguely mentions a future “month to month” fee after their release, but has not yet specified what those price options may look like. Members will be able to cancel their membership at any time, though.
I already signed up
Because I’m confident I’ve spent more time searching for jobs, than I’ve actually spent working, I’ve signed up for the Beta testing of Freelance Leads. I’m a sucker for pretty much anything that will save me time and increase my money (hopefully).
Try it with me, and let me know in the comments if you’d be willing to use the paid version, when made available.
