Why It Matters
Freelance and contract work online is a multibillion dollar industry and growing quickly. Existing offerings are virtually all based on the premise of quoting for a job. It's like going to a hair dresser and having them bid and quote on your particular hair. Some types of service work are better done with fixed price, fixed services. Microlancer brings a new mindset to creative / tech freelancing.
