    You may have noticed your favourite forum has had a nip and tuck. This is just one part of a whole new look for Freelance UK and, even more exciting, there's a brand new freelance community too.

    As well as more guides on running your business, legal tips and marketing know-how on Freelance UK, we've also launched your very own business directory and network in the shape of Freelance Alliance.

    Freelance Alliance showcases the best of Britain's freelance creative and media talent. For £5 a month you can do away with the hassle and cost of maintaining your own website and get your name in front of clients ready to hire. Create your profile by listing skills, uploading portfolio items and set your own web address. You can also team up with the different skills of other members to land the bigger projects too. We've already seen lots of interesting leads passing through the site so we hope you'll want a piece of the action too. Find out who’s already snapping up work here: Find a Freelancer - Freelance UK

    We’ll also save you money with our discounted deals for members. Discounted insurance, half price guides, BUPA family cover and more.

    Freelance Alliance is exclusively for UK creative and media freelancers.

    We hope you like what you see! If there’s room for improvement please do tell us at editor@freelanceuk.com

    Good to be here

    I have just taken the leap and have joined-up.

    My initial intention is to earn some extra cash to supplement the "day job" but with longer term hope and view of making this my full time earning role.

    It's great to find this professional and friendly organisation and I look forward to exploring the benefits of being a part of "the club" and to
    communicating with other new starters and more experienced folk along the way.:banana

    Hi Tracey

    Welcome to the forum!

    Telemarketing is doing well at the moment. They are some good leads being sent to members of Freelance Alliance as businesses realise freelancers of all creative & media skills can keep their order books turning over in a cost-effective way, and not only that but they're fast to bolt on to enable them to react swiftly in challenging times.

    I've mentioned on another post that a benefit of FA is that your listing is optimised by location and skills for the major search engines (a while back now! http://forums.freelanceuk.com/general-forum/2739-change-approach.html). This means members will be found in Google as well as searches made direct on the site. So it's a cost-effective way of not only getting your profile on the internet but actually being found too. There's lot of talk about Freelance Alliance at the moment and the other benefits of networking (How to ... become a freelance worker - Times Online) so do have a look to see what you think.

    Best of luck whatever you decide.

    Its really good to have this forum as it targets UK specifically. I have been using other forums but mostly they are US based, which is fine but it helps to have information targeted to Freelancers in UK.

    As a brand new registrant here, I find the administrator approval of new forum posts very annoying (and VERY time consuming + unnecessary) for the Freelance.co.uk community. Great site otherwise.

    Hi Mikelance

    Thanks for joining us. Sorry you're peeved about the time lapse for your initial posts to appear but otherwise this forum would be swamped, and I mean swamped, with spam. If you saw the amount of these initial posts we have to bin you'd see what I mean :frown2
