CFN is an online outsourcing platform that puts employers and businesses in contact with a global network of freelancers (Copywriters, Content writers, Tech Programmers and savvy Digital Marketing Specialists). Any member can post a project, whether a short- or long-term job and choose from skilled freelancers who offer bid proposals with rate quotes and time estimates for completing the work. It’s a mutually beneficial arrangement.
Employers can have their pick of hundreds of freelancers who have the exact skills needed to get the job done, without undertaking the expense and commitment of hiring full-time employees in person.
Freelancers can tap into a readily available source of constant part-time and full-time work opportunities from employers who are specifically seeking them out.
Freelancer profiles include detailed information such as work experience, resumes, portfolios, a number of hours worked through CopywritersForums, and skills tests taken so you can better know who you’re hiring. We also calculate Job Success scores and display confirmed feedback from past clients to give an overview of freelancers’ client satisfaction histories. Top freelancers in the marketplace are highlighted with Top Rated badges, which give clients information about freelancers’ reputations. Ultimately, however, it is your responsibility to do the final screening to help ensure that the freelancer is a great match for you and your project.
Job Success scores are a complete reflection of client satisfaction, with high scores indicating a track record of meeting or exceeding work expectations.

You can evaluate your prospective clients using data such as the number of jobs posted, total spend in the marketplace, feedback history, track record for awarding posted jobs, and the amount of time a client has spent hiring on CopywritersForums. You can also learn more about the client and the exact work specifications by communicating with them through CopywritersForums Messages or by video conference before accepting a proposal.

It’s important to have a clear idea of what you want when creating a job post or a proposal. When hiring for your project, maximize your chances for success by inviting freelancers with the right skill sets to match the job. As a freelancer, protect yourself by only accepting contracts with reasonable requirements.
With escrow, client’s pre-fund work and release funds to their freelancers as projects are completed or milestones are met – knowing that they’ll be able to review and approve delivered work before releasing payment. Escrow also gives freelancers the comfort of knowing that a project is funded before they begin working.
Learn more about escrow for clients here, and for freelancers here.
Hourly work is protected by Work Diary – an easily-accessed billable time system that shows clients both hours worked and in-progress screenshots to verify hours. Freelancers bill their clients for hours through CopywritersForums’ automated weekly billing system.
