So, you may have heard of the Sacramento Freelance Network. Also known as SFN, this new service launching on October 1st is the brainchild of Modern Roots Marketing. In the past year of working more directly with, and alongside freelancers, we’ve realized that there was a need. The need for an affordable place for freelancers to “advertise” themselves.
That’s exactly what the SFN will do. It will get an individual freelancer’s skillset and qualifications out there in one central place where they can easily be found by potential clients. And that’s not it on the services our online directory will provide. We’ll have a listing of coworking spaces in the area so that freelancers know their choices and availability. In addition, a variety of businesses that cater to freelancers can advertise and put themselves out there, again in the one central place. It’s all about connecting!
As mentioned, we’ll be in full operation mode starting on Tuesday, October 1st. Freelancers can become members now, however, and it only takes $5 to get started. We offer two extended levels as well with added member features; the Official Pro at $15 per month, and the Certified Pro at $30 per month.
Here’s what you get at each level:
SFN Member: Listing with name, headshot, primary skill and link back to your website or portfolio.
Official Pro Member: All of the SFN Member items, plus a dedicated directory page, ability to list 3 skills, link to 1 website and/or portfolio, link up to 3 social media pages, an Official Pro badge, and the opportunity to have your work highlighted.
Certified Pro Member: All of the SFN Member items, plus a dedicated directory page, ability to list unlimited skills, link to 3 websites and/or portfolios, links to unlimited social media pages, 1 gallery & 1 video to share your work, Certified Professional badge, blog highlights once a quarter, included in Top Freelancers of Sacramento List.
Our hope is to provide a service that satisfies the needs of the freelancer. One that also brings together those needing work, those needing workers, and those providing services to them. We see great potential in this directory concept and we hope that you do too!
