The Entrepreneur's Alternative to Quickbooks!
Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) November 01, 2013
As technology improves and economic hurdles continue to arise, increasing numbers of individuals are rejecting traditional, full-time employment in favor of a more flexible and dynamic approach to their working arrangements: freelancing. According to the latest figures from the Freelancers Union, some 42 million Americans are considered to be independent workers – that means that almost one third of the total US workforce is already freelancing.
As the shape of the workforce changes, innovative companies are ensuring that they remain ahead of the curve in supporting this massive new market. Motiv, founded by a young freelancer from Florida, is one such company. Motiv’s new web application allows freelancers to quickly and easily create professional, eye-catching proposals, contracts and invoices for their clients. Designed for freelancers in the creative sectors, the app appeals particularly to designers, developers and writers, though it can be used across all industries.
The newly launched Motiv system is simple to use and saves freelancers time and effort by taking care of the paperwork, allowing the individuals to focus on their core business. Dylan Feltus, Motiv’s founder, explains:
“Working as a freelance Web Designer I found that many hours of my time were being spent on creating proposals, or on the administration of setting up contracts and invoices. I figured there had to be a faster and easier way to deal with that side of my business, which would then allow me to focus on my actual work.”
Thus Motiv was born. Created by freelancers for freelancers, the innovative web app offers a custom creative suite that allows users to tailor content to the field of their choice. Pre-designed templates ensure that proposals will stand out from the crowd while taking only minutes to create. Internet marketing expert Joe Alva has been using Motiv since its inception and wouldn’t be without it:
“Motiv takes the pain out of paperwork. It’s so simple and yet so clever. With just a few clicks I can create professional proposals that are sure to be noticed, while essential paperwork such as contracts and invoices is taken care of without me having to stress about it. Given the rise of the freelance workforce, tools like this are becoming a key part of life’s modern essentials.
“Personally, the notification and analytic tools that Motiv offers are a feature that I just couldn’t be without – they allow me to see when a client has viewed my proposal, so I can pitch the timing of my follow up call perfectly. The fact that contracts can be signed electronically through the system is another bonus, as work can begin as soon as it has been agreed, rather than waiting days for contracts to go back and forth for signature through the post.”
Further enhanced by features such as daily blog posts, Motiv has quickly gained a strong following of freelancers and made a splash on social media sites. Given the rapid rise of the freelancers, whose numbers have swelled from 10.3 million in the US in 2005 to the current figure of 42 million, it is clear that tools like this are no longer a ‘nice to have’ but an essential part of how the modern workforce operates.
