New Freelance Marketplace Launched for Clients Seeking More Experienced Writers
PHILADELPHIA -- July 18, 2011 -- Freelance writing site, All Freelance Writing (http://AllFreelanceWriting.com), launched a new freelance writing marketplace to connect professional freelance writers with clients in need of their services. Unlike other freelance marketplaces that attract low priced gigs, this combination of a job board and professional writer profiles focuses on higher tier work.
This enables clients to find highly qualified candidates without sorting through countless profiles or bids from unqualified individuals. At the same time, the freelance marketplace allows clients to find professional writers even if they aren’t comfortable posting high paying gigs publicly. Instead they can browse existing writer profiles from more experienced professionals. The new freelance writing marketplace can be found at http://allfreelancewriting.com/jobs/.
“The race to the bottom mentality behind freelance bidding sites often makes them a bad deal for the most qualified freelancers,” said All Freelance Writing Founder, Jennifer Mattern. “Many of the best freelance writing jobs are never publicly advertised because clients fear being bombarded with unqualified applicants who jump at any higher paying opportunity. This new job board and collection of writer profiles is designed to serve that professional market better.”
There are two sides of the new freelance marketplace:
1. The job board allows clients to post ads about specific gigs. There is a minimum compensation amount which eliminates the extremely low paying gigs that saturate other freelance marketplaces. The job board also prohibits ads from content mills (also known as content farms) which famously underpay their content producers. This maintains professional standards for writers while allowing serious buyers to separate themselves from the negative image these low paying gigs often give freelance marketplaces.
2. Professional writer profiles are available to writers looking for more exposure with clients that choose not to publicly advertise their gigs. This takes advantage of the search and networking options many buyers employ instead of advertising. There is a minimum rate requirement for published writer profiles to give professional writers a place to market their services without hobbyists and new writers dominating the marketplace.
Clients can place a standard 30 day job ad for $14.95 or a featured 30 day ad for $24.95, which provides better ad placement on the site. Between now and August 1st, clients can save $10 on either type of job posting by entering 10OFFLAUNCH as a coupon code when they post their job ad. Clients may post job ads after registration or without registering on the site. Only registered job posters have the ability to update their job posting status.
Writers can purchase a permanent professional writer profile on the site for $14.95. Users may later edit their profiles while logged into their account. These paid profiles are for added exposure and are not required for writers to apply for jobs on the job board. Any registered user can apply for jobs in the marketplace, and clients may include public contact information for unregistered users to also apply at their discretion. Site registration is free and also grants visitors access to the new writing forums. Visitors can register at http://allfreelancewriting.com/wp-login.php?action=register.
