Freelancer.com launches Australian online outsourcing site
Freelancer.com has launched its online freelance outsourcing site in Australia, bringing over 1.8 million professional freelancers from around the world to the fingertips of Australian businesses.
Freelancer.com.au went live today, allowing Australian small business to outsource just about any project they can think of – whether it be web design, marketing, accounting, finance or software engineering – any time of day, for a fraction of the cost of doing it themselves. Often small businesses won’t have access to staff with the required skills for every project in-house, Freelancer.com.au lets you tap into the experience of a whole world of experts offering their services to finish that project you have wanted to complete for months.
Freelancer.com.au lets you post a project online, with freelancers around the world bidding within minutes to complete the job for you. The average project is under $200, and starts at $30, making it extremely cost effective to get just about anything done.
Matt Barrie, Chief Executive Officer of Freelancer.com is particularly excited about launching Freelancer.com.au given the company is actually Australian owned.
“Our global business is actually wholly Australian owned, yet to-date we’ve had very little exposure in Australia. The little known secret is that we’re one of Australia’s biggest websites globally! According to Alexa, we rank 378th globally, with more traffic than eBay.com.au, SEEK, Carsales and Realestate.com.au.”
“With unemployment in Australia at near historic lows of 5.1 percent, we provide the workforce that Australia desperately needs to power into the digital economy. With the Australian dollar at all time highs, Freelancer.com.au enables this at incredibly low prices”, Matt Barrie continued.
Recent Freelancer.com projects includes design of a website for an advertising agency (28 bids, $217 average), an iPhone app (10 bids, $225 average), and CAD design of a fully functional dune buggy (36 bids, $268 average).
