FAQ

FOR COMPANIES

Why can I find freelancers for free without paying a commission fee?

The Fring app is free to use for all freelancers and companies. Our mission is to make the freelance recruitment world hassle free: save time, money and stress. All freelancers are able to share their profile and availability in the app.Companies are also able to use the Fring app for free to find available freelancers.

Our Freelance Relationship Management (FRM) plans for companies have a paid subscription model. With the FRM professional and enterprise plans companies benefit from extra superpowers to recruit, plan and manage their freelance pool. See our pricing plans for more info.

How is Fring different from Linkedin?

Well, the colours obviously! No, all joking aside. Linkedin is a great tool, it's just not optimised to handle the needs of working with freelancers.

How does Fring keep the availability of the freelancers up to date?

Remember the poke-button on Facebook? Well, it didn't have a real function there, but within Fring users can poke each other when their availability seems to be out of date. The freelancer receives a notification stating: Hey Jake, Acme inc would like to know if your availability is still correct. In addition, Fring helps its users with friendly reminders to keep their availability up to date.

How to use the tags?

Use tags so you can easily organise and filter the freelancers you follow, and create smaller groups. Examples could be roles, skills, seniority but also your company's experience with an individual. Some companies choose to use skills or industries for tags. Others use internal projects or departments. Feel free toplay around with them, they're for your eyes only.

Do other companies have access to 'our' freelancers?

No they don't. We understand that a flex work force is an important asset to your company. You've taken time and effort to build this team of best fit freelancers. Fring helps you by adding the missing ingredient 'availability' to your flex pool. Other companies cannot see who you are following.

Bare in mind, the freelancers will be able to follow other companies, similar to Linkedin, it's in their best interest to be connected to more than just 'one' supplier of work :-)

Companies who manage their flex work force hassle free with Fring

In a dynamic digital design agency like Fabrique, our flexible workforce is very important to us. We need them to meet fluctuations at the demand side of our projects.

For that reason, Fring is a very attractive addition to our HR toolbox.

Matthijs Klinkert
CEO - Fabrique

Is it important for us to have a good relationship with our freelancers? YES!
Is the way we do it right now efficient? NO! And hello! There was Fring...

With Fring we have a connection with our freelancers AND an up-to-date overview of their availability. We are now just one click away to match good freelancers with our teams and clients!

Carola Spruit

In my opinion Fring is the true missing link we waited for to manage our flex workforce.

Fring is free for freelancers

Broadcast your availability

During a project, you are less visible to the rest of your network. And whenever you are looking for new work, you must visit countless job boards and social media.

Fring is a simple way to capture your availability for work and instantly share it with your trusted network of former clients, agencies, other freelancers and even recruiters.

Job openings originate in the context of their daily work and not on job boards ;-)

Download the app:

Google Play Store
Apple App Store

How to make Fring work for you?

  • Create a short profile with some personal keywords
  • Update your availability for work, and tell the right people to follow you
  • Follow your friends and build your own personal 'first ring'
  • Forward a friend's profile when you think s/he might make a great fit for a new job opening
  • Join Company Flex Pools and subscribe to Job Channels (coming soon)

With the Fring app, you keep your network up to date about your real‐time availability. You can also follow other users, and by doing so you create your own ‘ring’ of trusted freelancers around you, who you can contact for work.

You can soon follow public or company‐owned job channels and receive job posts in a consolidated timeline.

FAQ

FOR FREELANCERS

Can everyone just follow me?

No. You are in control over who gets to follow you and see your information. Click the ⚙️ on your profile to check your account settings. Your account can be set to private, this way 'only users you approve can see your information on Fring.

I have the app and created my profile. Now what do I do!?

Welcome to Fring, you are halfway there! After you have created your profile, everyone should know you are on Fring!

So how to get other freelancers and companies to start following you? There are roughly three ways to go about this.

1. You search for them, follow them, and when they see you they will follow you back.

2. You can forward your own profile (click the 🚀 on your profile) and send this link via whatsapp (or e-mail) to the persons and companies you want to keep up to date on your availability.

3. Word of mouth. Tell everyone who is able to help you land your next project that they should connect to you on Fring!

Free for freelancers... what's the catch?

Why is everything in English?

Freelancers are everywhere, and remote work is more common than ever. So to not exclude anyone, we chose to use English as the main language for now.
