The Freelancers in the UK (FLITUK) site is under new ownership – and Nick Jones, owner and curator of Find a Proofreader, is at the helm.
It’s no surprise, then, that the site has been rebranded with a new logo and colour scheme. And, says Nick, it’s ‘fully responsive, which means it’s optimised for mobile devices as well as desktops and laptops. So whatever device you’re using, you can explore the site and search for a freelancer much more easily than before.’
Nick’s already known for his social-media savvy, so we can expect FLITUK to be active across Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook – that means more visitors and increased visibility for advertisers.
The advertising fee has been reduced to £30 a year, too, so if you had a listing under the former arrangements you’ll be getting more for less! Even for newbies to the site, like me, at that price I think it's worth testing for a year.
Like findaproofreader.com, FLITUK gives advertisers full editorial control. Here’s Nick again: ‘The new site also allows users to log in whenever they like and edit their listings. Members can upload images, add social media links, and they can even get their customers to rate their service out of 5 and leave comments.’
