It’s never been easy to be a company of one.
Imagine what the business card of a freelancer would look like if it included all the roles that come with working on your own.
Whether you’ve been freelancing for years or just starting out, it’s easy to feel like you’re on a lonely road—or these days, a lonely chair, working from home. Not even on-site at a company, a co-working space, or a coffee shop—who knows for how long?
There’s a lot of business to do before you can get down to the business of making money. Marketing yourself, prospecting, networking, making contacts inside companies, figuring out how to get yourself and your family insured, finding assignments, writing proposals, tax accounting and quarterly payments, bookkeeping, learning what you need to know to keep yourself on the cutting edge, etc.
And on top of all that, how do you find a professional community that you can be a part of; people to talk to, learn from, and compare notes with so you can continue to evolve and grow?
When we started Talimer, we thought about all the challenges independent workers face.
And we thought, what if freelancers had a wing person? What if we put freelancers first?
So that’s what we did. We gathered our decades of experience in:
- Digital Business Transformation
- Corporate Innovation
- Global Marketing
- Project Management
- …and More!
We invented a better way for freelancers to both connect with great work and feel confident, happy, and secure. Now you don’t have to go it alone. We’re here to help.
We help you find work.
We understand great freelancers don’t get into their line of work, hone their craft, and polish their skills, because they want to spend their time being marketers of themselves and salespeople. They want to create. So, we help make finding assignments easy by partnering with great companies that value top-notch talent. We also ensure jobs are well-qualified with detailed requirements so you can provide accurate secure proposals.
We help you stand out from the crowd.
We help you figure out and communicate your full value. We’ve defined a process and built a framework inspired by decades of experience working in hiring and human resources. We’re committed to ensuring you stand out from the sea of sameness that a lot of freelancers can feel like they’re trapped in. We consider your current skills and your aspirations. Then we put you in touch with companies that need the talents, skills, and personality that you alone have to offer.
We help you get paid what you’re worth.
Sometimes setting rates can feel like a shot in the dark. A lot of times the bidding process quickly becomes a race to the bottom with all kinds of people with different skill levels competing on price. We give you helpful insights on market rates and other things you can use as benchmarks when setting rates. We also show you how to better articulate your value so you can go into negotiations with the confidence and knowledge to get where you want to be.
We help you spend less time on business B.S.
When you work with us, we handle time tracking, invoicing, and payments so you can spend more time creating and less time dealing with those important, but time-consuming tasks. We also give you access to business resources and best practices that enable you to streamline accounting, expenses and all the other parts of running a business that really aren’t much fun.
We give you access to quality benefits.
Getting good health insurance is one of the top issues that freelancers face. If you work 30 hours a week through Talimer, we can hook you up with a quality plan, no matter where you live in the USA. We are one of the few freelance marketplace to offer benefits to freelancers across the country. Because we know how important it is to your security and peace of mind.
We give you support and help you grow.
We know how important it is for freelancers to stay ahead of the curve in this rapidly changing world. We offer access to a network of like-minded people you can connect with, talk to, and learn from. Meet in on-line roundtables to talk about challenges, share insights and ask questions of each other, experts, and mentors. Find a mentor—or be one.
With Talimer, you have the support you need to meet the challenges and enjoy the benefits of freelancing.
Because in our vision of a perfect world, every freelancer’s business card would look like this:
Talimer is blowing up what’s wrong with the “gig economy.” By putting freelancers first in a unique marketplace, we’re growing and empowering a diverse community of tech professionals to feel fulfilled, confident and secure in their lives.
