How does it work?
Simple! You get access to our project referral newsletter and coworking community, designed to help you start conversations with hundreds of leads directly from your inbox that can become life-long clients.
When will I get the first project?
Probably in the next 48 hours (weekdays). Great projects can come in unpredictably, so it might be today or it might be tomorrow.
About how many opportunies should I expect?
About 5-10 per week.
Are you going to spam my email with lame projects?
Nah, we hate those email subscriptions 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 to make sure it's right for the community.
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.
Can I cancel/unsubscribe at anytime?
Yes, every email has an unsubscribe link at the bottom and you can cancel your membership 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. I 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 over email 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 graphic, frontend, and UX design gigs. Members say that the leads I send 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 good email.
I’m outside of the US, is that a problem?
Not at all. 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?
Unlikely, Folyo is not 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 delivery of 30-40 monthly projects 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 in Folyo are generated from the community or come straight to us 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.
Think about it this way. If you land even one client within the first year, you pay for years and years of your subscription.
