New Delhi (PRESS RELEASE – April 8, 2009) – LimeExchange, the socially-networked, online services marketplace has achieved yet another milestone by registering over 25,000 users in a record period of 8 months since its global launch on July 30, 2008 – making it one of the fastest growing services marketplaces in the world. To acknowledge this milestone and to show their appreciation to its service providers who helped fuel this growth, the company is waiving all project-related fees and commission for a period of 90 days starting April 01, 2009.
LimeExchange features freelance professionals & small businesses specializing in areas such as graphic design, programming, copywriting, and business services–more than 20,000 talented service providers in over 160 countries worldwide. Businesses and individuals who are looking for resources on demand and an extended outsourced workforce can register and post a project free of charge, and receive proposals from talented professionals and small businesses that meet their criteria. Buyers can then choose the best proposal, negotiate terms of service, track and manage milestones and flexible payment schedules via a secure escrow account – all within the LimeExchange interface.
“LimeExchange’s growth showcases the existence of demand for flexible work and global skills in today’s economy,” said Pawan Agarwal, Head India Operations Lime Labs LLC. “Inspired by feedback from our users, the fees waiver would be one of the ways to show our gratitude and respect towards our community” added Mr. Agarwal.
