MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Hungry for a freelance gig? Here’s Indierectory 2020, giving independent talents the platform to showcase their special combination of skills to clients looking for side-hustlers for their projects.
Launched in 2019, the platform had a successful run, with 77 members currently on the list. It opened again for sign-ups starting February 25, 2020, to champion the spirit of freedom. And within a day of announcing its call for entries, sign-ups nearly doubled from last year’s.
Many have already benefited from the Indierectory.
“Working as a freelance creative before, mahirap talaga to look for clients. It’s [really] helpful to be in a platform that allows me to easily promote my works and expand my network… What I like the most about it is the fact na it’s free and it’s easy to join. Just sign up in a few minutes, get your credentials online, and wait until the opportunity omes to you.” – Abbie Demavivas
“Back when I was freelancing, I randomly got an e-mail saying they got my name and portfolio from there (Indierectory). I did not only get project-based stints but also scored job offers and interviews. But since “freelancing is life” ako noon, I accepted the project-based ones which were mostly on art direction and FA for billboards.
“It was honestly a good move from my end kasi sobrang laking tulong niya noon especially since I was living alone and I had bills to pay. Malaking tulong talaga dahil kapag freelance creative, you’re not living from paycheck to paycheck.” – Hannah Vailoces
