Help for freelancers : Freelance Friends
"I wish I was nearer and I would come and help with packing like a shot..."
"I'd help if I lived near you..."
I've come up with an idea. Its just a germ that I thought of in 10 mins... so needs a lot of figuring out.
I would have to have it organised based on counties and then people could access it to put their names forward as either volunteers (if they wish)- or just if not more valid - paid workers - with a fee that they would like to achieve per hour as a helper. That way creatives who are low on work are able to earn whilst helping those that are so busy they can't cope. Other freelances are far more likely to be available at short notice and if there is a list of names - locations and fees then it could be the answer to finding help.
The legalities are another issue - I can't forsee any problems if I am running it as an information list only. Can anyone else?
I'm quite serious about this, so please all genuine advice is gratefully received.
