Freelancer.com On 30th August, Australian site Freelancer.com announced that it'd passed the $1million mark in user revenue.

Freelancer.com

The site provides a virtual jobs market, linking job requests big or small to a worldwide audience of freelancers in locations including the United States, UK, India, Canada, and Australia.

Darryl Adams was given the opportunity to interview Freelancer.com CEO Matt Barrie about the Australian segment of the website, and how it works with Australian laws and conditions.

1. How long has Freelancer.com been in Australia and how important is Australia in the worldwide scheme of things?

Freelancer.com was launched in 2009.  It is a rollup of a number of outsourcing websites, the first of which was getafreelancer.com.  There was already a large number of Australian users on getafreelancer.comback when the site was acquired in 2009 and since then there have been a number of additional acquisitions.

Now Australia is the third largest employer country on the platform behind the US and the UK! Australia is extremely important to us for a number of reasons and not just because we're the 3rd largest employer country.

It is a great example of a country that has embraced this new way of doing business and for those businesses that are, they are reaping the rewards.  We have around 2 million small businesses and they are the silent powerhouse of our economy - constituting 97% of all businesses.Australia is leading the way in showing how online outsourcing can boost the economy.
