WRITERS. All FreelanceWriting.com has launched a new freelance writing marketplace designed to help clients find highly qualified, experienced professionals without having to sort through countless profiles or bids from unqualified individuals. Clients who are uncomfortable posting higher-paying gigs can browse the profiles of experienced professionals to find the right individual for their projects.
Jennifer Mattern, the freelance writer who founded AllFreelanceWriting.com,
wants to distinguish the job marketplace on her site from job sites that are
saturated with extremely low-paying gigs. She believes that setting a minimum compensation level for jobs will help accomplish that goal. The job board also prohibits ads from content mills (also known as content farms) which famously underpay their
Maintaining professional standards for writers allows serious buyers to separate themselves from the negative reputation that many freelance marketplaces have earned by focusing on ultra-low-paying jobs.
“The race to the bottom mentality behind freelance bidding sites often makes them a bad deal for the most qualified freelancers” says 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.”
There are two sides to the new freelance marketplace: Clients can either post ads about specific gigs or browse through the profiles of professional writers.
Clients can place a standard 30-day job ad for $14.95 or opt for a featured 30-day ad for $24.95, and get better ad placement on the site.
Writers can purchase a permanent professional writer profile on the site for $14.95. Users can edit their profiles as their experience expands. Writers are not required to purchase a profile in order to apply for any of the jobs posted on the job board. But if you want your profile to be seen by companies who prefer not to publicly advertise higher-paying jobs, consider buying a profile.
In order to post a profile, writers must agree to charge a minimum rate. The goal is to enable professional writers to market their services in an environment free of hobbyists and candidates without professional writing experience.
The types of job categories featured on the site include: business writing, freelance editing, print writing, technical writng, web content writing/blogging, web content writing/other, and freelance writing/other.
