On the FreeUp marketplace, the freelancers are divided into three general levels to help you choose the best one for your needs.
Below we discuss the basic criteria of basic, mid, and expert level freelancers so you can get an idea of what the levels mean.
Knowing what they do, their rates, and how they work helps you to better define the scope of the project and the hours that you will need, and plan out deadlines and budgets.
Entry level freelancers on the FreeUp marketplace are doers and followers.
They are fast learners, but you’ll need to train them to follow your system and show them what you want them to do.
You can expect to pay around $5 to $10 per hour for these freelancers, depending on the specific tasks you are outsourcing.
They are best suited for accomplishing basic tasks and following systems and processes that you already have set in place.
Here are some examples of tasks that you can hire basic level freelancers for:
Mid-level freelancers on the FreeUp marketplace are those with a specialization or previous experience in certain areas.
You won’t have to train these freelancers on their skill set, but they generally will need guidance on what you’d like to accomplish.
You can expect to pay around $10 to $30 per hour for these freelancers, depending on the specific tasks you are outsourcing.
One important note here is the price range is large and accounts for international vs US pricing. For example, while you can find a mid-level SEO internationally in the ~$15 / hour range, a mid-level US SEO would start near the upper part of the range.
Here are some examples of tasks that you can hire mid-level freelancers for:
Expert level freelancers on the FreeUp marketplace are those with high-level skills and experience. They are consultants, strategists, and planners, and are useful in certain cases to execute the most difficult and skill-intensive tasks.
Expert level freelancers are a good fit if you don’t have a process in place yet, or you’re looking to execute a new strategy.
You can expect to pay around $30 to $75 per hour or more for these freelancers, depending on the specific tasks you are outsourcing.
Usually, the first hour or so billed will be dedicated to conducting a discovery phase and creating a proposed plan of action. Once you approve the game plan, the expert can begin to take action.
These expert-level freelancers can consult, build systems and processes, and even manage projects completely independently from you and send reports.
