Helping Entrepreneurs Hire Skilled Freelancers With In-Depth Freelance Platform Reviews

We Hire 100's of Freelancers to Review Which Freelance Platform Is Best so You Don't Have To.

We’ve collected hundreds of reviews for more than 30 freelance websites (and counting). Using this information, we write in-depth reviews on freelance websites. Like Consumer Reports, our research team is separate from the monetization team to reduce the review bias.

I recommend reading at least three reviews to help you make an educated decision. If you find a review helpful, we’d feel honored if you visited the website from our review. This is an easy way to say “thank you” to our team as we receive a commission from some of the platforms at no extra cost to you.

You are who you hire.

If you hire a C-list player, it will be harder to catch up to your competitors who hire today's top talent. More-and-more areas in your business will feel like you’re pushing a boulder up a hill.

But if you hire an A-list player, you’ll begin to grow and scale your company with relative ease. 


Naturally, hiring A players is not everything necessary to growing a successful business. But hiring is one of the most important skills needed to grow the value of your company.

Consider what other CEOs have done to hire quality employees:

  1. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg spent up to 50% of his time recruiting talent, according to LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman in his book "The Start-up Of You."
  2. In 2012, Yahoo’s CEO Marissa Mayer began reviewing every serious candidate's resume. Her goal was to stop having B-players hiring C-players.
  3. As late as 2015, Google’s co-founder Larry Page reviewed every employee before they worked at Google. That’s over 53,600 people he's reviewed!

Before you hire A players, you can test the waters by hiring freelancers or contractors.

Rather than needing to spend money on a full-time employee right out-of-the-gate, you can work with the best freelancers at a fraction of the cost. Hiring freelancers is a wonderful way to build out your team.

We started Lancer Review from our own frustration finding, hiring, and managing quality freelancers. So we’re reviewing the top freelance websites, platforms, and tools to help you find and manage quality talent.

With each review, we read reviews from fellow entrepreneurs and share our experiences with you too.
