Look Ma! Top of the World Freelance Marketplace!

dean.jpg If you’re a Freelance Marketplace member who thrives on competition (the “in your face, pal!” set), and loves the classic art of experimentation (the “if it grows in the ground it’s probably fine, right?” set), we’ve got something we think you will like.
We’re looking for volunteers to beta test a new feature in the Marketplace soon, where select members will be part of a “featured freelancer” section at the top of the page. Basically, you’re meant to stick out like a sore thumb. But don’t worry, that’s a good thing in this case. The ultimate goal is to increase your exposure in the Marketplace, which in turn will score you more gigs.
Obviously, we figure that any Marketplace member would want to be on top of the page. We might as well ask you if you’d like big sack of cash. So, we’re asking a little something in return. We’d like you to take a very brief survey about your experiences on Freelance Marketplace. Specifically, we want to know how often you get freelancer inquiries, how many jobs you get from those inquiries, etc.
Once the completed surveys start rolling in, we’ll begin featuring freelancers in a dedicated section at the top of the Freelance Marketplace page for a period of time. After you’ve been featured, you’ll complete another very brief survey to measure whether you had any additional success from the added exposure. If enough members dig it, we may make the feature permanent.
So if you’re a Freelance Marketplace member interested in some fruitful experimentation, click here and let us know. You’ll be hearing from us shortly.
