Set up Milestone, Fund our escrow account and use our project collaboration tools to monitor your project to completion.
Yes absolutely. It's free to post a project, bid on projects, and use our entire website. We deduct a 10% fee from the freelancer's payment when you release a milestone escrow for work they have done. We don't do fees up front; it makes us focus on quality because we only make money when 100% satisfied work is completed.Being a project poster, Why would i use skillsmix?
Our unique process helps you choose the best matched and most trustworthy freelancer for your project to reduce risk. Two main things:
1) Q&A discussion board on each project helps you get answers, ask questions, clarify things, and get attention from freelancers looking to work for you; you then get another element to judge their potential match that goes beyond a portfolio.
2) We put together a great design and layout for filtering and ranking bids as well. Things can get out of hand quickly when trying to narrow down 1 winner amongst 30+ bids. read moreI'm a freelancer, why is SkillsMix better for me?
1) We don't charge a membership or nickel and dime you just to look for jobs, it's free until you actually win a project.
2) The Q&A boards on each project level the playing field so that quality, knowledge, and customer service stands out much more than just who's cheapest. read more
For anyone looking to get any type of projects done, and looking to save time, outsource something they can't do, or cut costs. Also, open to any freelance web designers and developers, marketers, and writers looking for project work.Will I get ripped off?
NO! After you fund an escrow, you don't have to release the escrow payment if the work isn't done or satisfactory. Rarely will that happen though, as our process makes you choose only the best and most trustworthy freelancers. read moreIs my data safe and secure?
Yes! Everything is encryped in the latest 128bit SSL certificates, backups are made hourly, and only a chosen few ninja masters have physical access to our servers.What if I need help, how's your support?
Help is something we take dear to heart, it's what separates the great from the good. We, ourselves, hate sucky customer service and run arounds, so we definitely don't bring them into our own business. Check out our Support Center, head over to the Community Forums, or email us.Who runs this site, who are you guys?
