Freelancer writers, right the write and cut out the middleman!

As a freelancer myself, especially in the early days, I certainly paid my dues to enough "content agencies" to know where the larger slice of the pie ends up. Content Spree, on the face of it at least, appears to have added some welcome transparency to the process. On top of that writers who sign up and the businesses they write for get to communicate rather than leaving the management of a project to the guy in the middle.  It’s not all free of course but writers will at least know how much a potential employer is offering before Mr Ten Per Cent takes his cut rather than just ...  More

Own Your Future

It’s a common problem for anyone starting a business; top talent is expensive even on a part-time consultancy basis. Furthermore if early stage funding is hard to come by then the chances of hiring anyone in the high flyer bracket get even slimmer.  More
