101 Ways of Freelance Platforms Marketing

As I am running the Freelance Business Community where our main goal is to connect the freelance ecosystem, I wanted to look at how platforms position themselves. Do they position themselves as a place for freelancers to find a job or a place for companies to find talents? I've reviewed more than 100 freelance platforms' websites, read their marketing slogans and made a list. I even came up with my own slogan based on the most popular words. Read on.

Freelance Business Community
February 20, 2023

For a while, freelance platforms didn’t have a super reputation amongst freelancers. The perception about freelance platforms was that in order to win the competition on such a platform, you need to go low on fees or that you potentially can’t find any well paid business there. I’ve followed some of the courses about how to win customers on some popular platforms, and the suggested strategy is indeed to start low and raise your fees gradually. But how much lower can you go if you can find someone at 5-10 EUR per hour? It may work for a starting freelancer, or someone who does freelancing as a side-hustle in additional to the main job, but not for a consultant who has years of experience. 

Luckily, we have a new generation of freelance platforms joining the ecosystem that have a different approach to utilising freelancers skills. We see more deliberate matchmaking between the platform and customer request, where freelancers join the company mission and work on assignments long term for a fair pay. We see a better relationship building between clients and freelancers that joining a freelance platform community. 

Jon Younger in his recent article Freelancer First: How Innovative Platforms Are Prioritizing Freelancer Success outlines a number of organisations starting to prioritize the freelancer long-term success, and I only wish that the number of such companies only grows.

My attitude towards platforms changed too. From denial, that I can’t possibly find any suitable job for me on a platform, I am at the phase where I would like to test 3-5 platforms this year to find a match for my own freelancing skill set. (Follow me on LinkedIn, where I’ll share my learnings.)

So my curiousity about freelance platforms positioning was driven by 2 things: one – I wanted to find a freelance platform for myself (apart from running the Freelance Business Community, I am an event marketer) and second – to see how many of them actually taking the Freelance First approach that Jon Younger describes. 

I had a big fun reviewing how freelance platforms position themselves. I checked more than 100 of them. I wanted to find a platform where I, as a freelancer, feel welcomed. While I was reviewing the websites, it struck me: what an excellent exercise it could be to collect and compare all the marketing messages, so I started putting together the freelance platform slogans list. 

From 100+ platforms that I’ve viewed, only those highlighted in bold italic below position themselves as a place for freelancers to find jobs, the rest position themselves as a place where corporates can hire freelancers and find talent. A handful of organisations positioned themselves as a freelance friendly platform. 14 out of 101!

Why is it like this? Why in the war for talent, platforms are not positing themselves friendlier towards freelancers?  

It does not surprise me. At the end of the day, most platforms are making their money from attracting more clients. Finding a freelancer is not a ”biggie” (as I was told recently). Their main concern is to bring more jobs in. Freelancers will follow. 

Reading through the list of the slogans, I couldn’t help but counted the most used words. What if we take the most used words and come up with a marketing slogan for a platform, which is freelancer focused?  I tried to do it at the end. Would you like to give a try as well and send me your version? 

101 Marketing slogans of freelance platforms: 


  • ‘’//’’ means that the platform has a message for freelancers and clients on their home page. 
  • Unless translated, the slogans are kept the way they are written on the websites.
  • The company name was changed to either ”We” or ”Our platform” to keep it anonymous.
