  • Just wanted you to know that I couldn't be happier with the VA you suggested. She far exceeded my expectations with her excellent work! She really knows what needs to be done when it comes to optimizing listings for Amazon and will save me a LOT of time, money, and headaches (dealing w/ Amazon) so thank you for introducing us.

  • Working with FreeUp is like a breath of fresh air compared to some other freelancer sites. The freelancers are truly vetted and the one we work with is stellar. Prior to starting, we were working with another freelancer from FreeeUp and we had a minor issue. FreeeUp stepped in right away and helped resolve the problem quickly and with a smile, the way it should be. Can only say nice things about FreeeUp!

  • I've been with FreeeUp for a little over 3 years now. I found it easy to use. The staff is very approachable. The best marketplace for freelancers to find their desired jobs and for clients to hire their workers remotely.

  • At Helium 10, our biggest bottlenecks have been our workforce -- growing faster than we can find qualified people to fill positions. Finding the right people is tough. FreeUp made it easy for us to hire an EA when we really needed it.

  • I've worked with three different people for three different needs (CSS coding, executive assistant, blog writing) through Freeeup and have been happy with the quality of communication and skills of each. FreeUp is a freelancer marketplace that delivers on its promise of high-quality talent.

  • I hired them for a small project and was treated like a king the whole time. They contacted me when I signed up to help me, contacted me again after I posted my project to help get more freelancers, contacted me again during the project to make sure everything was going well, and again when the project was done! I'm very happy with how the project turned out, and appreciate all the help from the FreeUp team!

  • I had a very positive experience working with FreeUp and my freelancer. I submitted a request for a graphic designer and I was working directly with someone within 24 hours! The logos they came back with were exactly what I was looking for and this led me to work with them again regularly on larger projects whenever I need.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out the most common questions, or contact us if you can't find your answer!

There are many freelance marketplaces out there, but they are all very similar. You post a job, get 100 applicants, interview them one by one, and it takes forever. If you find someone you like, you invest time and money into them. If that person quits, you are right back where you started interviewing applicants. With FreeUp, we do things differently. We save you time on the front end by pre-vetting all freelancers for skill, attitude and communication. You get fast access to these freelancers by submitting a freelancer request telling us what your perfect freelancer looks like. On the backend, we offer 24/7 support to help you get the most out of your hiring. Lastly freelancers on the marketplace rarely quit because they love it here! But if they do, we cover replacement costs and get you a new freelancer right away so that you are never left stranded. Saving you time on the front end and protecting you on the backend is what FreeUp is all about.
Freelancers on the FreeUp Marketplace represent the top 1% of freelancers that applied to join the FreeUp platform. All freelancers on the FreeUp marketplace are put through a 4 step interview process to ensure they are the best fit for the network. First, freelancers submit a marketplace application providing their resume, Internet speed test, typing test, and short answer questions about their skill sets. Second, the marketplace interviews the freelancer testing them on skills specific questions to determine their level of expertise. Third, freelancers are interviewed by the marketplace for problem solving, communication, and work ethic. Finally, all freelancers study the Marketplace Communication Best Practices and show they understand the marketplace’s best practices for communication with clients. If the freelancer passes all levels of the interview process, they will be set up in the network. Learn more about the top 1% here.
Freelancers set their own rates on the marketplace. Once you submit a freelancer request, you will be introduced to 1-3 applicants along with their hourly rate. That rate includes FreeUp fees. Ballpark rates for all available skill sets are always available through the Freelancer Pricing page on the FreeUp website. You can locate the page by clicking on the Pricing tab in the top header of the website menu. Or you can directly navigate to the page through this link: https://freeup.net/pricing/. If you have any specific questions about the skills and their estimated rates, please contact us.
Submitting a freelancer request is simple and only takes a minute. Log into your FreeUp account and click on the button titled "Request a Freelancer." Fill out the Freelancer Request form outlining the details of the freelancer that you are seeking and click the Submit button. Then sit back and relax while we go to work for you! Within 24 hours (usually faster) you will be introduced to 1-3 top applicants. Any questions? Contact us here.
Freelancers on the FreeUp marketplace rarely quit, but it is real life and it could happen. If a freelancer quits, please contact us. In the special circumstance that they do, FreeUp will get you replacement options quickly and FreeUp will give you free hours for the new freelancer to cover replacement costs. Turnover is always going to be a hassle and there is nothing we can do to relieve all the hassle, but our goal is to get you a new freelancer as fast as possible and get you right back on track.

How to Hire a Project Manager

A solid third of projects fail without the oversight of senior leadership positions, such as project management.

Your company may not need a full-time project manager, so why not consider a freelance hire?

A solid third of projects fail without the oversight of senior leadership positions, such as project management.

Your company may not need a full-time project manager, so why not consider a freelance hire?

There are a number of qualified individuals who can meet your needs as a freelance project manager.

A few factors, such as hiring costs and the details which go into finding and hiring a qualified individual, are explained for you below. Read our guide to understand the complete process.

How to Hire a Freelance Project Manager

Before your company is ready to act on a freelance hire for project management, you need to understand what the position can do to increase a team’s productivity. Fortunately, the responsibilities of someone for this position are largely determined by the needs of the project itself.

What Is a Freelance Project Manager?

Project managers work on the daily management of a project, which encompasses a few details. Project management, especially for freelance hire, should have outcomes defined by time and budget. 

Typically, a freelance project manager has to consider six major aspects of a project, including:

  1. Scope: planning tasks, assigning teammate responsibilities, and coordinating teamwork
  2. Timeline: setting a deadline and motivating team members to stay on track
  3. Budget: examining what is worth financial expense (e.g., project-specific costs)
  4. Risk: assessing possible risks and managing them proactively
  5. Quality: overseeing work produced and adapting to maintain standards
  6. Resources: acquiring project-specific items to ensure completion

Project management includes lots of coordination between various team members, and often across many departments. The size of the project determines how much work your freelance project manager will have to perform and how much it will cost for your freelance hire.

What You Need to Look For in a Project Manager for Hire

Due to the large number of tasks a project manager oversees, you need to be precise and specific with your needs and expectations. A freelance hire can wreck a project if he or she doesn’t coordinate your company team members well. 

  1. Plan ahead. Give yourself enough time to hire someone for the position so the project does not get off to a bad start.
  2. Provide a clear job description. If you have other employees already in mind for project-specific tasks, make sure your freelance hire knows this.
  3. Ask the right interview questions. Determine their project management experience has taught them to coordinate, adapt, and problem solve.
  4. Assess their worth. If they look too good to be true, don’t hire them. They may ask for less money and you may suffer from poor freelance management.
  5. When you’re ready to hire a freelance project manager, make an offer they cannot refuse.

After you have thoroughly considered the qualifications for your freelance hire, you need to determine what to pay your potential project manager for hire.

How Much Does a Freelance Project Manager Cost?

Your average freelance project manager salary ranges from $32,500 to $210,000. With such a wide range in pay, you may be asking yourself what determines the cost.

Your average project manager salary is determined by a few factors. For example:

  • Whether you work in the private or public sector
  • Experience in project management
  • Specialization in any niche projects or markets
  • Location, such as city, country, or remote
  • Certification or education in project management
  • Cost of average project budget

Of course, you will pay less for shorter projects and less qualified individuals, but you may end up paying more if you are located in an urban setting and working with someone in-person. In essence, you get what you can afford and are willing to pay for.

Where to Find a Good Project Manager for Hire

Determining hiring costs and the responsibilities of a freelance project manager is just half of the work. You also need to know where to turn to find a quality project manager for hire. You need a hiring platform that stands out from the rest.
