“Reducing costs for companies and allowing freelancers to be entrepreneurial and keep what they earn is attainable using GetSerio.com." - Daniel Green, Founder & CEO
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 18, 2015
GetSerio.com today announces its launch after a successful beta testing period. The Sydney, Australia-based startup offers a unique alternative to online freelance websites that rely on taking fees or commissions from freelancers.
“Online freelancing and ‘buying’ sites push anonymity, discouraging open communication, and as a consequence too many professionals and hirers stay away,” says Daniel Green, Founder and CEO of GetSerio.com. “I founded GetSerio.com because I firmly believe that a wide scale shift to online hiring won’t happen as long as online marketplaces take a cut of the fees earned by freelancers. By adding fees or commissions, the kinds of projects serious companies need to get done becomes prohibitively expensive.”
GetSerio.com was born out of the evolution of the online service marketplace. Green, having already grown a successful offline business employing more than 100 staff, started GetSerio.com to solve what he saw as challenges trying to use other freelance websites. The site shifts the focus from so-called ‘buyers,’ to what GetSerio.com calls ‘Hirers’ – managers at established companies who are looking to build lasting working relationships with reliable freelancers. Putting reliability at the core of the freelancer-hirer relationship means connecting vetted corporate hirers with skilled freelance professionals. Freelancers can register in under a minute using LinkedIn and keep all they earn. Hirers pay a nominal annual fee to access comprehensive project management and collaboration software and to ensure they are up to the standards of today's most talented freelancers. All fees are waived for a limited time as part of the launch.
“First-generation online hiring websites are outdated with a focus on quantity over quality,” says Green. “Reducing costs for companies and allowing freelancers to be entrepreneurial and keep what they earn is attainable using GetSerio.com. With our focus on reliability, professionalism, realistic rates of pay and vetting hiring companies, we believe we’ve created the platform for the Future of Work.”
GetSerio.com is where online freelancing and hiring is taken so seriously we put it in our name. GetSerio solves the problem of reliability through a revenue model and management tools that emphasize achievement. Founded by Daniel Green in 2011, the company is based in Australia with a presence in the United States.
