How to Hire Freelance Talent – Free

Who's Got Talent?

Who's Got Talent?

Freelance talent is flexible, saves you money, can have immediate impact on your business objectives and often brings associated benefits of a more commercially aware skill set.

Some studies suggest that the added flexibility of a freelancer is worth around £15,000.

Other studies show that the value of freelancers is worth 15.9% of annual costs (ignoring any NI or tax savings) – just imagine what would happen if you added 15.9% to your profit margin?

In addition, businesses gain the benefit of smart, commercial people who often have a broader perspective of what works in business as they will have completed a number of assignments over recent months and years. This breadth of knowledge allows freelancers to add valuable real-world experience to decisions about how to develop and grow your business.

For instance, are you asking yourself how freelance talent can cut your marketing and business development costs whilst still growing your business – all at reduced risk?

Great – then you can cut your business costs and gain real business advantage by engaging with local freelance talent. But, how do you find the right talent without spending forever looking for it….
