The UK’s Freelancer Club is a shining example of a freelance platform that doesn’t take commissions from its members or their customers, but instead asks freelancers for a membership fee straight away. They offer membership plans from 0 to £20/month (£240/year if billed monthly) and are currently helping 40,000 creative professionals in growing their business as well as finding new jobs and clients. Jon Younger praised the club in his recent Forbes article Meet The Freelancers Club: A Pioneer Helping Freelancers Grow Successful Careers, quoting its CEO Matt Dowling: “The freelancer, not the site, ‘owns’ the client relationship. We’re not a marketplace in the traditional sense – we don’t hold money on the site, or take commission, and our involvement ends when we introduce the company to the freelancer.” Amen to that.
