A great online invoice generator for Freelancers – It’s free!

What is an invoice, anyway? An invoice is a bill for products or services rendered. By creating and sending a invoice, you are recording the fact that you provided a product or a service and someone has made payment for it. Why do I need invoices? If the product or service you’re selling isn’t paid in full up front, you need a formal way to request payment from your customer. You also need a way to keep track of payments due from specific customers. Invoices meet both these business needs. Businesses need to collect invoices in order to make the monthly accounting reports, to calculate profit or loss, and to store them for 5 years at least for tax purposes. So all businesses need to receive invoices. By the ability to issue invoices, you increase your potential customer base, because some businesses can not pay for goods or services which […]

Why Micro Job Market Is the Future of Freelance Website

Freelancers are at particular risk of exploitation from employers. In some cases, the scope of their work can be increased with no new pricing negotiations, they could be left waiting for weeks to be paid, and they typically don’t enjoy the same health or retirement benefits that in-house staff receives as standard. Moreover, online platforms usually take a big chunk of freelancer’s money (usually between 10%-30%), just because they happen to use that platform. For instance, Vlad Dobrynin, CEO & Co-Founder of Humans.net, believes that the future of online freelancing should be “fee-free” with fewer boundaries. If you are looking for such a fee-free freelance platform with maximum flexibility, including direct contact with recruiters, direct payment from recruiters, promote own website in profile – you will be happy to know that Micro Job Market is the only platform in the world which fits all the criteria above. As such, we […]
