Noida, India (PressExposure) July 29, 2009 -- Freelance Exchange is a service from afaqs! - India's number one advertising, media and marketing site. It is an online forum that connects freelancers or service providers and clients from the Indian advertising, media and marketing world and allows them to conduct business online.
This is how it works. Freelancers pay a small annual subscription fee and create their online profile complete with resume and work samples. These could be individual professionals or firms and consultancies that take up projects on a contract basis.
Clients who range from individual consultants to small businesses to large corporates and are looking to outsource their projects upload these as assignments on the site. For clients the service is free at the moment.
Freelance Exchange sends out these assignments as alerts to the relevant category of freelancers registered on the site. Within 24 hours clients start receiving proposals from interested freelancers. Now all they need to do is to compare, review and select the profiles that are best suited for the project.
Aalhad Wadekar, Product Manager - Decorative, Shalimar Paints Ltd says, "It indeed is a very good concept where potential service seekers like us can directly get in touch with service providers on freelance web portal. What we liked was one can go through the creative work & understand the work done by the person. It definitely will give us more options to choose from & work with multiple freelancers & reduce our dependence on a single agency."
With over 4500 freelancer profiles Freelance Exchange is definitely the most popular exchange in the Indian market today.
Unlike other sites, Freelance Exchange does not charge commission.
