Four easy steps to hire your first freelancer on Unicorn Factory
Click on "Start Hiring" and create a client account. You will be asked a few questions about your business to make it easier for us to find the ideal freelancer for your project.
We will review your business to ensure that you are a good fit for the platform. As soon as you are verified you will get full access to the platform.
Choose a plan, get your account set up, and you'll get to your own client portal. This is where you can keep track of your job posts and manage the freelancers you’re interested in. It’s straightforward, even if you’re new to this kind of thing.
Once you're onboarded, we'll launch your first job listing for you. This is where it all begins! You'll have full access to the platform, ready to connect with freelancers, review applications, and kick off your project. It's simple and straightforward, guiding you through each step, especially if it's your first time diving into the world of freelance hiring.
Payments are made directly between you, the client, and the freelancer. This direct approach allows you to discuss and agree on payment terms, rates, and schedules that work best for both parties. Unicorn Factory does not intermediate these payments, ensuring transparency and flexibility in your arrangements.
While Unicorn Factory is instrumental in connecting clients with freelancers, project management is generally handled directly between you and your chosen freelancer. Our platform's role is to help you find the ideal professional for your needs; once you connect, the freelancer will work with you to manage and execute the project.
We recommend that you first try to resolve any disagreements directly with the freelancer through clear communication. If issues persist, you can reach out to us for guidance. While Unicorn Factory doesn't directly intervene in disputes, we can offer advice and best practices for resolution.
Once you agree to work with a freelancer, you'll typically discuss and finalize project details, timelines, deliverables, and payment terms. It's a good practice to have a clear agreement or contract in place. Then, the freelancer will begin working on your project, keeping you updated on progress according to your agreed-upon communication plan.
The Concierge Service at Unicorn Factory is all about providing a fully assisted experience. We do the heavy lifting: creating your job listing, reviewing applicants, narrowing them down to the top three, scheduling interviews, and offering support during the interview stage. We even assist in reviewing proposals and provide feedback. It's perfect for those new to hiring freelancers, ensuring a smooth and guided process.
On the other hand, Business Pro is for the more independent hirer. It's a do-it-yourself approach where you write your listing, review applicants, conduct and schedule interviews, and review proposals on your own. This option suits businesses with experience in hiring freelancers. However, opting for our Concierge Service not only guides you through the hiring process but also grants you a full year's access to Business Pro, giving you the best of both worlds.
