Owned by an unknown UK individual, Joomla Freelance is a certified rarity. It is a site that doesn´t charge ANY FEES or COMMISSIONS, PERIOD. Now, we all know how popular that can make one in the online job marketplace arena. However, there were only about ten active projects on the site at the moment of writing this review. All jobs which were posted had bids, so we aren't ready to write Joomla Freelance off just yet. If you are in the market for modifications, enahncements or a webmaster for your Joomla! website, then Joomla freelance could be worth a try.
The only source of income at Joomla Freelance are the $10 charged to get a featured project for buyers and the also $10 charge to become a SPECIAL USER for providers, which is like a reputation endorsement only available for users with feedback scores above 8/10.
A great place to find jobs with zero investment, but good luck with that.
There are currently no featured projects on the site, so you could be the only one, if you decide to splurge on the $10 cost to feature your ad.
The site looks great. There aren´t people venting about how it´s a scam anywhere, so, why aren't people using this site? Although its probably not the most profitable idea with the no fees at all philosophy, perhaps this explains the lack of incentive to market or promote the site to the Joomla community.
