Help for Entrepreneurs… who engage Freelancers…

We’ve learnt some important lessons in 2010 – and to kick off 2011 in the right spirit we are going to make a few changes!

Firstly, we have a new section on Enterprise Freelance Fair – just for entrepreneurs growing their businesses by engaging freelance talent.

Secondly, we’re going to rework the website a little to help make the job board and editorial sections a little clearer.

We found, in 2010, that the real growth for freelancers in the marketing, sales, creative, digital, design, web development, IT, social media, PR, copywriting and sales sector, is with the startup and growth businesses.

These businesses are best placed to engage with freelance talent and benefit from rapid deployment of the huge range and depth that freelancers can bring to new and growing businesses.

At the same time, the cost of borrowing money from banks or raising it from Business Angels or VCs has increased sharply meaning that entrepreneurs need to deliver more with less, and this is forcing them away from rigid full time employment structures into more efficient and effective project based working with freelance skills and knowledge along with flexible office space and other innovations.

And yes, we do mean business – that is private business. The public sector is moribund with jobs and spending slashed and little or no ability to offer new projects.

Hence, for both freelancers and the entreprenuers who have figured out the benefits of engaging freelancers, 2011 is going to be a very busy and exciting year.

To help this, we have launched a new section – dedicated to helping entreprenuers and growth business leaders get the benefit of working with freelance skills and talent.

We’ll be added regular weekly posts to this sections – so please look out for these, feel free to join in the discussions and let us know if there are any topics that you’d like us to look at!

Please come and take a look…
