was looking arround for a few days at FreelanceSwitch…that site is not bad actually, but it really need the deserved attention. Please envato, do whats necessary to make this site worht the $7 membership and take it to the next level.
Are you kidding me? It’s one of the biggest design/developer related boards on the web. 37signals also has a huge board…I think a few others have too, but fsw is one of the biggest. All of those boards are paid.
well… i dont know what you are targeting by “big”, i am on 2 other job boards and they are big…but really big with few million users (thos numbers taken only of freelance service providers). Buyers on this job boards are couple more times bigger numbers than the number of freelance service providers…so if you now telling me that FSW has a few million buyers, i am going to put some good LOLz on here.
Regarding the market of web job boards, fsw has one of the biggest imo. Sure there are boards with millions of users, but those don’t target a niche.

want me to come back with some statistics? :-) lets say…number of projects posted a day…targed niche? I can see the number of jobs posted on FSW …and i can also see number of jobs posted on thos other freelance sites in the web design and graphic design niche. One of this job boards has such a number of posted projects in the web jobs category, that FSW cant even see it in a couple of months.

edit* -adding to my description above:

just a quick copy-paste stat of the last 24H:

Statistics during last 24 hours (this, about 90% in the web/graphic niche…can message you the URL if you want so you see for yourself)

URL would be great, is it behance? I don’t have the numbers, I was stating impressions. As far as I know, fsw is a pretty big board in the niche.

no..is not behence. Message with URL sent, note i entered only the following keywors to scan the jobs database: “web, design, graphic, logo, banner, php, ajax, wordpress” and the results get listed by mixed category/keyword. There are 50 listings per page and the jobs posted today into this few categories are over 150. If you konsider typing all keywords related to our niche (web and graphic design), i can imagine this number of “posted projects today” may triple (or even more).
