Here’s my favorite pitch so far this week:
My name is Kevin and I work with the media team at Freelancer.com.
I just read your January 13 article for Entrepreneur highlighting some superb strategies for budding start-ups about how they can scale up successfully while still managing their cost of doing business.
I would like to introduce you to Freelancer.com, another powerful resource that helps entrepreneurs and small businesses in California, throughout the U.S., and across the world grow by providing them with a global network of skilled workers at their fingertips. Here are some numbers that may astound you.
Freelancer.com global numbers:
- The world’s largest freelancing and crowdsourcing marketplace
- 22+ million members in 247 countries, regions, and territories
- 9.6+ million projects posted worth $3+ billion
Freelancer.com U.S.-specific numbers:
- 2.46+ million employers and freelancers in the U.S. – our largest employer market globally.
- 380K+ projects posted by U.S. employers in the past 12 months
We’ve been connecting entrepreneurs and small businesses to this gigantic community of talented freelancers, providing them with a cost- and time-efficient system to kickstart their businesses.
Our International Director, Sebastián Siseles, would be happy to provide you with more information about how easy and inexpensive it is for an entrepreneur to transform an idea into reality with just a few mouse clicks, and at a fraction of the cost (even allowing an entire business to launch on the back of a credit card!). Likewise, Sebastián can provide unmatched insight and knowledge into the areas of entrepreneurialism, freelancing, and crowdsourcing.
I would like to schedule a chat between you and Sebastián. I think you and your Entrepreneur readers would benefit greatly from his expertise. Feel free to contact me with your thoughts and I’ll be glad to set things up for you.
