Frequently Asked Questions
How does Folyo work?
Simple! We seek out $10k+ design projects all day, everyday. When we come upon a particularly good one, we send it right to your inbox! You start conversations with strangers that can become great life-long clients.
How do I get access to projects on Folyo?
Sign up using this page and you will get instant access to our database and newsletter.
About how many emails/projects should I expect?
The exact number depends on how many great contract opportunities get shared on that day. We never post a project just to post it.
Are you going to spam me with bad projects?
Nah, we hate those "job sites" that puke out every remote job posted to a job board whether it’s a full-time job or project-based. Every project we send is thoroughly reviewed by hand. We don’t take a commission, so our only interest is helping you find awesome projects.
Will there be design projects for my agency?
Most likely yes. We can’t control what type of projects we get but we look out for the best Graphic, UX, front-end, and interaction design projects on the web. If your agency does design, there will plenty of chances to meet great clients.
Which countries do the projects come from?
We send projects from companies world-wide. Every project is looking for remote help. Most of them are open to freelancer/shops anywhere in the world, unless otherwise noted. Folyo works best if you're based in the US.
Is my credit card info secure?
Yes. This site is encrypted using a 256-bit secure connection and all payments are processed through Stripe, the same payment processor used by Shopify, Target, BestBuy, NPR, and over 100,000+ other online businesses.
I signed up. Why am I not receiving emails?
Sometimes our emails can end up in the spam folder, or in Gmail’s “Promotions” tab if you use Gmail.
Here are some instructions for many common email clients to keep our emails out of the spam folder.
If you can’t find our emails in Promotions or Spam, then email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to help troubleshoot the issue with you!
What is your refund policy?
We offer a 30-day 100% money-back guarantee.
Can I cancel/unsubscribe at anytime?
Yes, every email has an unsubscribe link at the bottom and you can cancel your premium subscription at any time.
When I win a project how much commission do I have to pay?
None. Any client you land on Folyo is 100% yours. We don't get between you and your clients in anyway. Unlike many other freelancing sites, there's no app, no commission, and no percentage fee. It runs on independence so you own the communication and keep 100% of your income.
What kind of projects will you send me?
Folyo is focused on clients looking to solve important design problems for their business. That means you'll get graphic, frontend, and UX design gigs. Members say that they find on Folyo reply at a higher rate than any other type of lead generation they’ve done in the past. But they also have an unfair advantage. They’re better at contacting clients because Folyo makes it easy to focus on sending a really good first email.
I’m outside of the US, is that a problem?
Folyo works best if you're based in the US because we're based in the US and most companies that come to use are based in the US. That said, if you can design and have a solid grasp of the English language, you can - and will win - work from these projects. Folyo has top freelancers from all over the world, including places like Europe, Asia, and basically every other continent in the world who are loving the service. Unless otherwise noted, all projects are 100% remote and open to remote freelancers anywhere in the world, so I’d suggest you sign up and see if it’ll work for you.
Will this replace my sales funnel?
Probably not. This isn’t a replacement for an entire design business' pipeline. This is a great way to supplement your existing pipeline and fill the gaps in your schedule by starting conversations and meeting people outside of your network with active gigs. Folyo’s new 30-40 monthly opportunities will work best with a healthy dose of inbound leads. Regardless, it will add thousands of dollars to your bottom line.
Can I just find these projects myself, for free?
No. A lot of the projects we send come straight to Folyo and are found nowhere else. Your time is too valuable for finding projects online. We believe you should be spending your time winning projects not finding them.
