|Why use freelancers?|
Where do you go for a solution? Until now, you’ve asked around if anyone can recommend a designer, a writer, a programmer… Sometimes you find someone but how can you be sure they have good experience, will understand what you need and won’t rip you off?
Freelancentral is the solution. An online directory of freelancers in South Africa’s creative industries, Freelancentral can help you find exactly the creative or marketing mind you’re looking for. Search our database of quality freelancers, view their portfolios, check their availability and rates, and read what previous clients have said about them.
Hiring freelancers means you don’t have to worry about UIF, pensions, healthcare and the red tape involved with taking on permanent staff. You can take people on for short periods of time, as and when you need them.
We encourage our portfolio members to submit references on the site and we personally check these. You can see how many references a Full portfolio member has had approved - just look out for the number in the contact details section of their portfolio. And as our freelancers' rates are advertised for all to see, you can be sure you’re getting a fair price.
Freelancers are usually a lot cheaper than using a creative agency, because they have lower overheads. And, as most work flexible hours, you’re bound to find someone who can help you out at last minute.
And the best bit – you can browse the portfolios on Freelancentral for FREE. Freelancentral members pay to be listed on the site, but it costs you nothing other than their rates to hire them if you contact them directly. Alternatively, if you have a Project you'd like to advertise, drop us a line and we'll advertise it in our Projects section - or if you're looking for a freelancer to work on a day rate basis, give us a call and we'll find the right person for you at very affordable rates.
