We all want to look professional when a lead or client looks at our flyer, our business card, our website, but some of us might not have the time needed to make it all look that way. When you are in need of a design for marketing sometimes it is best to hire a freelancer to help out. There are many places on the internet that you can reach out to and ask for a helping hand.
Think of these websites like the Uber car service of marketing. You ask to have something designed and you can either pick from a list of freelancers who have previous work examples to browse or freelancers submit their ideas to you and you choose the one that you think is best. You then work with your freelancer and decide on revisions and changes until you are satisfied.
How it works with payment is that you are paying these sites and not the freelancer. Only until you have stated that you are satisfied with the work do these sites then pay the freelancer. Think of these sites as the middleman to make sure that you get what you have asked for before someone runs off with you money.
These are a few that we have had success with over the years, from business cards to sixty second video sizzle reels. These websites have just about every option you can imagine.
