Announcing The LeadPages™ Freelance Jobs Board

By Clay Collins, Co-Founder and CEO of LeadPages

Believe it or not, I get my heart broken every day.

It’s because I visit job boards like Elance and I see things like this:

And this:

Which, more often than not, lead to this:

Leadpages Template Design   Website Design Job. Review Proposals on Elance

And that breaks my heart. These are ambitious, talented LeadPages customers who want to do big things with our product, and they’re looking for experts who can help them with these enhancements.

Yet, as you can see on this particular job listing, they received almost no bids, and the two people who DID submit bids aren’t even LeadPages customers.

So I decided to never have something like this happen to one of our customers again. We took matters into our own hands to do what we could to ensure you get real LeadPages experts to help you out with real LeadPages needs.

Which is why we’re proud to announce….

Introducing the LeadPages™ Freelance Jobs Board

540x304-jobs-board

Today, we’re excited to roll out the new LeadPages™ Freelance Jobs Board. If you’re a LeadPages™ customer and you need help enhancing the amount of sales and conversions your business receives, you no longer have to scour the internet for the right freelance job board that might have professionals that can help you.

With the LeadPages™ Freelance Jobs Board, qualified experts in every aspect of conversion optimization bid for the chance to work on your project. Our directory hooks you up with experts in four crucial areas:

  • Designers: Design experts can help layout and create new, custom templates.
  • Developers: Need a web page or feature developed? We’ve got you covered.
  • Conversion Rate Optimizers: Is your landing page just not converting like you want it to? Our freelancers can help turn that around.
  • Funnel Experts: Create intricate, smart funnels that convert at every turn.

You won’t find another jobs board on the internet that is as laser-focused on maximizing your LeadPages experience.

If You Need Help On A Project….

Then you’ve come to the right place. Submitting a job is as easy as:

1) Visit the Freelance Jobs Board and clicking the “Submit a Job” button.

  • Sara Bobkoff

    Indeed, excellent initiative. Ho can we get on as an expert (in my case, copywriter)?

    • Sean Bestor

      Hey Sara! For now, you can take any job under the Conversion Rate Optimizer tab, because those will call for copywriters. However, we will be adding a new tab that is solely dedicated to copywriting services!

      • Sean Bestor

        Good news! We just added that category right now. How about THAT for response time 🙂

  • Sandra D’Angelo

    Are the freelancers certified in any way? Does LeadPages vet them before they can create accounts and place bids on jobs?

    • Sean Bestor

      Hey Sandra! Thanks for the question. The main advantage to this job board over other boards out there is the the fact that it’s geared towards experts that use LeadPages (as opposed to people who have never used our services). The people that apply for jobs on the board should be LeadPages customers and, as a person who posts a job, you’ll be able to see who is best qualified for your job. Within the freelancer’s bid, they’ll talk about the success they’ve had in LeadPages and some examples of things they’ve done so you can get a feel for who they are and their level of expertise. From there, it’s up to the job poster to determine who the best fit is for their job.

    Awesome work ya’ll! Make sure to get Google Analytics (+GTM, Kissmetrics, etc) on that subdomain! No analytics currently firing there. Side note, it’s kinda odd that you all have both Optimizely and Visual Website Optimizer firing on this blog subdomain — seems like it could potentially slow some things down! 🙂

    • Sean Bestor

      Haha good looking out, Zach. We just launched this, so Step 2 is getting that tracking code up! And no worries on the speed part — we’re still lighting-fast with load times in the milliseconds 🙂

      • Zach Edwards

        🙂 I figured the priority was on functionalty and speed! Great job as always.

    If you could expand this and overtake Elance you guys would become my new best friend 🙂 Elance is a waste of time. LeadPages to the rescue!!

    • Sean Bestor

      Next stop, world domination, Jerad! We’re definitely excited to roll this out and make sure we don’t see things like we saw at the beginning of this blog post happen ever again.

      • Jared

        Once you expand to App development I’ve got 4 jobs waiting. Couldn’t find anyone worth while on Elance. Learned the hard way, lost $6000. Never again!! Hope you guys have security features in place so that does’t happen here.

        • Sean Bestor

          Hey Jared. Ask…and you shall receive! Head on over to the board, and you’ll see we’ve created a new category so tenderly named “Other”. If you’ve got some app jobs, throw them in that category for now and see what comes up!

          • Jared

            Your like my own personal Genie! 1 wish down, 2 more to go!

  • Monique Parker

    Wooohooo – this is awesome! I always recommend Leadpages to my clients but many of them aren’t techie and struggle to engage someone to do the set up for them without paying to the moon and back. Can’t wait to give it a whirl!

    • Sean Bestor

      And thus, the Jobs Board was born! I’m so glad we can fill that need, Monique.

  • Sandis Viksna

    While we have demand for this, do we know if there are people and pros offering the support?

    • Sean Bestor

      There sure are, Sandis! We’re driving experts to the job board and they’re ready to take on jobs.

  • Great addition! I was just working with a client who wanted a custom landing page template. This will come in handy!

    • Sean Bestor

      Fantastic, Christian! Enjoy the board!

  • Very Smart LeadPages. Very Smart.

    • Sean Bestor

      Thanks, Brandara! We had our scholar caps on for this one 🙂

  • $5 for posting a job? Good luck with that. Its not a resource if you pay for it, by the way.

  • Melissa Vasquez

    Thank you this is awesome!

    • Sean Bestor

      Thanks, Melissa! Enjoy the board.

  • marymeckley

    This is perfect! I’ve submitted one of those proposals before on Odesk so I’m thrilled you’re now the ones who have our back!

    • Sean Bestor

      Well we’re glad to see you switching on over to our sweet jobs board, Mary! I know you’ll love it.

  • Nina W

    This is a great idea and exactly what I am looking for! Will be submitting a job soon! When I clicked over to look at the site, the font is so tiny and hard to read. Just wanted to let you know, because I would want feedback like that.
