People Per Hour is the UK’s largest talent website for sourcing professional freelancers at affordable prices. It was established in 2007 by Xenios Thrasyvoulou, and its mission is to create an environment where talented people can lead an independent lifestyle without compromising on their success. If like me you are a business owner, you might be reading this and thinking, “Well that’s all well and good for the freelancers, but what’s in it for me?” And that’s a great question. In this article, I am going to take a closer look at exactly how it can benefit you and your business.
To start off with, People Per Hour breaks the “work norm” by offering a 24/7 service. So no matter what time of day you find yourself working (Any night owls out there?) you will be able to interact on this platform in search of talented professionals and freelancers. By forgoing the 9 – 5 work paradigm, it benefits both freelancers and business owners. The 24/7 clock it runs by also extends to their customer service team who are on hand at any time of day should you need their help.
In addition to this, you can purchase pre-packaged services- which are known as hourlies (hence the business name), OR post a custom job. For custom jobs, all you have to do is fill out a quick, simple form to give details of the project you’ve got in mind. Of course, the more detail you can give, the more relevant freelancers you’ll attract! The platform then does the hard work. It will match and contact the best freelancers for your particular project. Each individual freelancer can then respond with their own tailored proposal.
Another benefit that also provides me as a business owner some assurances on the quality of the work, is People Per Hour’s anti-fraud protection. Your money for any project is held in escrow and it’s only when you are satisfied with the work that’s been delivered that payments to freelancers are released. Furthermore, the website monitors each transaction by using identity identification to protect users from identity theft and fraud. There are also never any issues with copyright law. As soon as you pay, YOU own the copyright.
Summary of Key Benefits:
- 24/7 service available.
- “Hourlies”and custom jobs available.
- Anti-fraud protection and quality assurances.
And these are just a few of the benefits of using People Per Hour; I’m just scratching the surface. Ultimately, whatever you need, you’ll discover the talent to deliver. From a website build for your new business to a marketing strategy for your online shop, People Per Hour is the place to go to get the job done.
