Question of the month: Why do we not send enquiries from professional project brokers?
In the past, freelancers have complained about introductions with professional project brokers. Less than 10 per cent of their enquiries lead to a project, which is well below our success rate of 37 per cent. Many project brokers are also in the habit of negotiating for lower hourly rates in order to increase their own profit margin. Since the freelancers pay the introduction fee with us, most of them do not want an introduction to other project brokers and subcontractors.
Having said that, project brokers who are genuinely interested in an introduction with a freelancer at Freelancing.hk can, however, bear the introduction fee in place of the freelancer. The introduction fee is two-hourly freelancer rates.
