For more than 10 years, Rocketspark has been dedicated to making sure New Zealand businesses, like yours, have access to easier, more effective and affordable websites. Which is why Rocketspark knew acquiring The Freelance Village was going to be a great step forward for their customers.
Rocketspark’s CEO and co-founder Grant Johnson says that when the opportunity arose to purchase The Freelance Village, he was drawn to how well both businesses aligned. And ultimately, he saw the potential to enhance what each organisation was currently offering as a service.
“We have many customers who not only need a beautifully functioning website, but also content and imagery to go with it, and perhaps ongoing marketing support.
“So with The Freelance Village’s curated community of experienced, professional Kiwi freelancers, it will mean they don’t have to go far to find the right person (or people) for the job.”
For four years Erin Harrison, founder of The Freelance Village, has been working to build an online platform that puts businesses directly in touch with vetted freelancers, without barriers or cost to the business themselves.
“We were the first of our kind in New Zealand, to not put up any paywalls to access our featured talent. And we also limit the number of freelancers we have listed, in order to make the process a little less time-consuming for those looking for assistance.”
Erin also hopes that by joining forces with Rocketspark, it will encourage more businesses to use the services of freelancers.
“Many are experts in their field, who simply enjoy the freedom that freelancing affords them, as well as the opportunity to work with a wide client base.”
And it’s a sentiment Grant agrees with.
“We’re excited to be working with Erin to continue her vision for The Freelance Village. With so many options available for help with your design, content and marketing needs it’s great to have a handpicked collection of high quality service providers.”
