A freelance services marketplace is an online platform where businesses can find and hire individual contractors to do some work remotely. They act as an intermediary providing a safe and convenient way to contract remote experts for one-time projects. Online freelance marketplaces can vary depending on the type of work (one-time projects with fixed rates or ongoing hourly projects), services provided (engineering, design, copywriting, etc.), engagement models, geographical preferences, and so on. The total addressable market for the global Gig/Freelance economy is a whopping $1.5 Trillion, with North America accounting for over half of the world’s freelancers. It is estimated that by the end of 2022, there might be more than 170 million freelancers worldwide.
