Freelancer.com has an IPO of over $700 million and the Freelance marketing is still growing - check this video to give you a better idea http://youtu.be/_fWLU2gRtxU
But! before you do read my request:
For the last 4 years I have endured adversity trying to get my idea off the ground; wasted time, money spent on wrong things, Co Founders not committing (putting there hands on other projects) etc..
So! I decided to try go on my own: I built a prototype website platform that targets the freelancing niches (Cost me up a total $1200 AUD) Its very different and uniqne and very simple to use.
Users: Freelancers and Employers - All they have to do is publish there interest for finding work or posting work; awesome thing about it is no one needs to create an account, its an open source type service!
Here is the site: www.justyourx.com Its not a Porn site; the orignal name was going to be justyourexperince.com, it was to long so I replaced experince with x.
Its still in beta, and there a still some bugs that need fixing, so! if you feel my idea is something of an interest to you, and want to find out more?
Contact me and we will chat on skype
Ps realistically I am aiming to make $10k a month with the site, but I need help, who will join me to make this happen?
