Who should I contact if I have a question?

Please visit our Contact Us page and send us a quick message. We designed this platform with you in mind. So please let us know if there is anything we could do to make it better.

How will the client pay me?

Our goal is to make it easier than ever for clients to find and hire local freelancers. To do this, we realized that we needed to take out the middle man. Therefore, all payments and agreements are to be discussed between the client and the freelancer.

Our platform enables freelancers to post their hourly rates so that the client can review prices when searching for the perfect freelancer. We encourage both the client and the freelancer to utilize written agreements prior to beginning any service to prevent miscommunication.

How should I communicate with clients?

You can communicate with clients via email, phone calls, Skype, social media and any other way that makes getting the job done easier. We encourage you to be as responsive as possible with potential clients.

You and the client may contact each other in whatever way best suits you. You can even meet with clients and discuss their needs before taking on the job. Doing so will allow you to clarify the job description and discuss project goals in person.
