TOPTAL is one of the best freelance websites for accomplished professionals and the companies looking to hire them. In fact, the website brands itself as a freelance service for workers in the top three percent in their field. Businesses can find professionals from a variety of industries, including software development, project managers, and finance experts. And I can be sure that I am finding qualified professionals who will deliver top tier service. Of course, not just anyone can sign up for an account on TOPTAL. I have to qualify first. However, the professionals who qualify to market their services on TOPTAL can easily connect with companies that are willing to pay for quality. This is often a departure from those on traditional job boards who are looking to find the best deal when filling a freelance job. TOPTAL is a custom service. So companies can work directly with the site to develop a plan for recruiting and finding the best freelancers within a set budget. The freelance website usually requires an initial deposit of $500, which then goes toward my first invoice.
