Well Done Elancers! Over $1 Billion Earned on Elance.e_darrellj | Mar 09, 2014
Today we’re excited to announce another remarkable milestone for the Elance community. Freelancers have now earned over $1 billion (yes that’s with a “b”) in the Elance marketplace.
This impressive figure speaks volumes about the amazing quality of our freelancers. It’s also testament to how Elance is truly connecting the world through work. Yea! We’re delighted to help bring unprecedented opportunities to Elancers around the globe.
Online work continues to rise.
Speaking of which, what does the future hold for Elancers? If our 2013 Global Online Employment Report is any indicator, there’s no end in sight for the acceleration of online work. The demand for talented freelancers is escalating dramatically from day to day, week to week, year to year.
Well beyond a “niche” market, online freelancing is here to stay and a major force in today’s workplace. A recent Wall Street Journal video interview of Elance CEO Fabio Rosati helps exemplify the impact online work is having globally. We’re also excited to see an impressive surge in work on Elance Private Talent Clouds, as more and more large companies and enterprises hire freelancers through Elance. Having just launched in September of 2013, work on Private Talent Clouds promises to be an increasing opportunity for freelancers in the days to come.
Keep up the great work everyone. And we’ll continue making Elance the best place to work on this planet.
