Guru.com is a freelance marketplace that makes it easy for small businesses as well as companies to find freelance workers.
Until recently, Guru would only allow freelancers to invoice clients if their bill was above the $25.00 minimum cap. But now the company has dropped that invoice restriction.
Guru Drops $25.00 Minimum Invoice Requirement
“Whatever your case is, we feel freelancers should be able to bill with flexibility,” said the company in a statement. “We have dropped our $25.00 minimum invoice restriction completely to simplify the way you bill employers. Now, you can send an invoice for ANY amount you want and your employer can use their SafePay or Cash Account to pay.”
Like most freelance sites, Guru offers businesses a simple way to get freelance help. Jobs are posted according to categories. You can easily find someone to work on your project whether it’s IT based, writing, finance, customer service or any number of other tasks you might need to outsource at your small business. You can also choose to pay using a fixed or hourly rate.
Also like other similar sites, Guru.com offers businesses the chance to work with a huge pool of freelancers from all over the world. So there is a better chance of finding a freelancer that is ready to work within your budget.
Small businesses and freelancers are given a chance to showcase their skills to potential clients using online portfolios giving clients a chance to judge which freelancers might be the best fit for their project.
Guru.com is home to more than 350,000 small business owners and freelancers. These professionals are often able to provide business services, Web design, programming and other services with relatively short notice, the company claims.
Guru is fairly easy to use and with navigation that allows you to find the latest projects up for bid with ease. However, unlike rival Upwork (the platform previously known as oDesk), Guru.com only allows freelancers to bid for a certain number of projects for free before requiring a paid membership fee.
