Online marketplace for outsourcing Freelancer.com, formerly known as GetAFreelancer has acquired virtual content marketplace Freemarket.com and is relaunching Freemarket’s platform under the Freelancer.com brand.
Freelancer.com focuses primarily on providing a marketplace for remote workers. Freelancer.com now caters to a user base of 1.7 million small and medium-sized businesses (up from 1 million in October 2009) and says it has outsourced more than 725,000 projects to date.
Now freelancers can sell their content on Freemarket’s content marketplace. The aim is for Freemarket.com to become one stop shop, an ‘iTunes for designers, content creators and programmers’.’ Users can sell a variety of content, including stock logos, website templates, stationery, images, sound clips, 3D models, themes and more. Currently, Freemarket has over five thousand items of content on the platform.
