This culmulative fee goes into marketing the Freelance Factory as a one-stop shop - bringing together employers, clients and freelancers.

The Freelance Factory does not act as an agency - therefore does not

access to this pool of highly skilled Freelance Creative Talent, freeing them from the trappings of
using advertising or marketing agencies, with significant financial benefits. It simply offers a cost effective alternative to traditional recruiting agencies.
The world is changing - and so too is the work environment. Technology has made it possible to
work remotely and this has encouraged more and more individuals with a wide range of expertise,
to take the Freelance option.
In addition, the economy has forced larger marketing and advertising
agencies to use Freelance Creative Talent - as and when they need it -
without commitments of full time employees. As the larger ad agencies are also looking for ways to cut todays
escalating costs, they can now search The Freelance Factory absolutely FREE.
The Freelance Culture
The Freelance Culture is associated with a good balance between work/life and this site encourages Freelancers to work together.
Within the Freelance Factory site there is The Factory Floor which creates a total workplace environment
for the Freelance community. This is just as valuable to the Freelancer as the directory itself.
Often Freelancers work in small groups, from small studios and sometimes from home studios. It is a tremendous benefit to Freelancers to log on and exchange tips or team up for projects
- or even to chat LIVE - and be part of a work environment in the Freelance Factory virtual community.
It's a win-win situation for employers, prospective clients, businesses and freelancers.
