, (PressExposure) July 10, 2006 -- The Internet has created a need for qualified writers. It also offers a means for writers and other freelancers to make it known that they are open for business. Many sites allowing freelancers to post descriptions of their services have sprouted up. Some of these sites allow freelancers to post brief descriptions of available services, while others allow detailed profiles and resumes. Some are free, and others are not.
When deciding which of these web sites will best promote their services, freelancers should consider how much, if anything, they are willing to pay for the service. Some services allow employers to register for free, but ask freelance service providers to pay a fee in order to âbidâ on jobs. As a result, employers can post their jobs in multiple sites and are under no obligation to hire any of the freelancers who bid on the job.
In most cases, sites that do not require a fee are a good bet. Freelancers will probably be asked to provide an email address, but aside from that, they are only investing the time it takes to create the post. Even if prospective employers do not find the site on which a freelancer has posted his/her information, any links that have been included in the positing will help drive more traffic to the freelancerâs web site (assuming that a web site exists). So in most cases, the time spent posting freelance services will help prospective employers find the freelance services provided.
The Writers Help Desk has recently expanded to offer a free freelance service provider listing. Freelance service providers can post a brief description of their services including links to writing samples and web sites containing additional information about the service provider. Freelancers can also attach resumes and create contact profiles that can be accessed directly from the post.
Prospective employers can find freelance service providers in several ways. The freelance provider listing is fully searchable so that it is easy to find a freelancer with the required skills and experience. Freelancer postings can also be viewed as a list. Prospective employers can also find freelance service providers by posting jobs in the freelance job listing.
Both employers and freelance service providers are required to provide the Writerâs Help Desk with contact information; however, employers and service providers can choose to keep this information private. Since all registered members can communicate through the Writerâs Help Desk message system, contact information can remain private without hindering communication.
