DesignQuote was started in 2006 by the owners of a high-end web development firm based in Atlanta. The owners had run the FreelanceDesigners.com directory since 1996 which is one of the largest directories of freelancers in the world. The marketing department delivered so many leads that Designquote.net was created to help those clients find designers.
With the huge database of designers, there were always several available to work on new projects. DesignQuote created a portal to connect clients needing work done with the many available designers throughout the world.
By 2009 DesignQuote was so successful the owners closed all other operations to focus solely on managing DesignQuote and several other directories.
There are many benefits for clients using DesignQuote as opposed to other methods of finding a designer or developer. Searching out seven or eight firms to request price quotes is a very time consuming task. Finding the best suited and available designers can take several days. With DesignQuote you only have to post the project once, and we help the appropriate designers find you.
If you have ever posted a project or job on Craigslist, you know that you will be instantly overwhelmed by hundreds of emails. Many responses come from applicants that are not qualified to work on your project, they are simply responding automatically to every project ever posted. It becomes an impossible task wading through the hundreds of emails or continuous phone calls.
With DesignQuote, the service providers (aka designers) are actually purchasing each lead, so you know that the designer is serious and invested. You have one place to manage all the contacts and you decide which designers to accept bids from.
Designers love the service because they can cherry pick the projects that are right for them, without having to go out and search for potential clients. It’s been a successful recipe for six years and we have helped thousands of clients and designers come together to create successful projects.
