The Internet has revolutionized the way that people work together for ever, as the launch of an enhanced web site in this sector clearly demonstrates. Since the new, improved Freelance Work Exchange web site was launched a few days ago, freelance professionals and employers from over 200 countries have signed up to work together on projects of every size and description.
Writer, designers, programmers and many other kinds of freelance professionals are now working with clients on everything from graphic design and marketing projects to complex software and web development systems.
"Freelancing is now a truly global phenomenon," says Rob Palmer, CEO of Freelance Work Exchange. "We have witnessed a steady increase in the international nature of freelancing since we began running out company online seven years ago. But the launch of our new, enhanced site has really highlighted the changes that are occurring in this field."
Just a few years ago, freelancers had to be within an hour's drive of their clients to have a reasonable chance of finding work. Thanks to online freelance marketplaces, however, all that has changed. Now clients and freelancers from all over the world can work together and collaborate on projects.
"Many of our clients use Freelance Work Exchange to build a truly global team," Rob Palmer says. "A company in New York, for example, might find a great web designer in London, an SEO professional in San Diego and a programming team in South Africa and bring them all together to work on one project. That way, they get exactly the right person for each part of the project, without having to compromise on quality."
The market for freelance services is already worth billions of dollars, and growing fast. Thank to freelance marketplaces such as Freelance Work Exchange, millions of people are now discovering that they build rewarding careers from anywhere in the world.
