How does the Freelance Village work?
The concept is simple (we hope). Freelancers have a profile and businesses can find them and contact them direct. There's no middle person acting as a gate keeper, or with their hand out for a cut.
It is also a place for freelancers to connect, collaborate and create with each other.
Does it cost anything?
No. Not at this stage. And not any time in the near future either. As a new website/concept, the word needs to get out into the business community before there is any value surrounding The Freelance Village.
Until there is almost a guarantee of ROI (in that we know businesses are connecting with freelancers) the site will continue to be free.
Who can have a profile?
In a nutshell, those featured are New Zealand freelancers who provide a service. But there is an importance placed on not only experience, but skill and quality. Businesses need to know that freelancers on here are good at what they do, and will produce work of a high standard - otherwise it could have a detrimental impact on the concept.
