Why fivesquid.com is great for freelancers

People everywhere can use fivesquid.com to maximise their earning potential; developing and utilising their skill set, and building strong working relationships online, internationally. From students to professional freelancers, we make it possible for everyone to share their skills and offer their services to the online global community:

Students who are embarking on their new career and need support to grow their client base and portfolios.

Small companies who use the website to attract a wider client base e.g. by offering a particular service on fivesquid.com whilst also making clients aware of additional services or products they may be offering outside of the site.

Professional freelancers advertising a snapshot of their skills to attract new clients e.g. whilst freelance editing services can cost up to £200 for a minute of footage editing, professional freelancers on fivesquid.com may offer the same service for a fraction of the price. The likelihood of multiple orders makes this feasible for the freelancer, whilst the service buyer enjoys the service product of a professional freelancer at an affordable price.

Individuals looking to earn extra income. Did you know that 37% of members on fivesquid.com are already in full-time employment? Whilst many of these individuals simply want to share the skills they practice as a hobby, many of them are saving for that dream holiday or a new home.


Why fivesquid.com is great for companies

One of the biggest hurdles for small and medium companies is growing their business while keeping costs to a minimum. This is where fivesquid.com makes it easier and more affordable for businesses to outsource tasks and complete those projects that might otherwise cost thousands of pounds.

  • Easy budgeting – With all services on the website clearly priced, alongside separate pricing for service extras, budgeting for a project is simple. And for more complex projects, sellers can create bespoke orders to meet the buyer’s particular requirements. Furthermore, the website now includes a great feature which allows buyers to post a request for a service that may not already be available on the site. Simply set out your requirements and how much you would like to pay for the service; members of our selling community can then contact you to pitch their skills and provide a quote.
  • A secure working environment - Our service sellers will only receive payment once their order is delivered in full. We take quality assurance very seriously and have rigorous systems in place to ensure orders are delivered on time and as expected.
  • A fun community to work with – We are really proud of our global selling community, and some of our most successful service sellers have been members of fivesquid.com since its launch in 2011. Our service sellers are always happy to help with advice and suggestions on your chosen project. It’s in their best interest to make sure you are happy with their service and that you enjoy your buying experience on fivesquid.com.
  • Credibility is key - Our service sellers pride themselves on the positive reviews and testimonials they receive of their freelance services. Before placing an order, you can review the quality of each service by reading the buyer reviews and viewing the seller’s overall percentage rating. This can help you decide whether the particular seller is the right freelancer for your project.
