Twago is one of the largest platforms in Europe helping businesses all over the world find freelancers to help them with tasks and projects. The company has been in operation since 2009 and has grown a large marketplace for clients and freelancers to work together.
(The name, if you’re curious, comes from the phrase TeamWork Across Global Offices.)
The company’s head office is based in Germany. The freelancers using the platform are based all over the world, as are the customers. The company is run by founder, Thomas Jajeh. He is responsible for IT development, product management, and performance marketing at Twago. Hermann Hohenberger is responsible for affiliate marketing, sales, and support.
The platform makes it easy for businesses of all sizes to find experts matching the skill sets needed to complete their tasks. You can find support for all areas of your business, such as site design and development, writing services, sales and marketing support, mobile app design, translation services, and more.
Their target customers are entrepreneurs and start-ups, to large enterprises. The size of the business doesn’t matter; you fill in a few details about your job, budget, and the skill sets you’re looking for from the freelancer, and the platform does the rest to provide you with some potential freelancers.
Twago Intro Video
As with most large marketplaces that allow you to post jobs and choose from the applicants that apply, there is a wide scope of services available. You’ll find programmers, designers, translators, marketers, and a whole host of other specialties.
If the work can be completed remotely there is a good chance you will find a freelancer to help. Because of the European focus, you may find more support for German, Italian, Spanish, and French-speaking assistants than on other freelance sites.
Plans and Pricing
Posting a project on the Twago platform is free. You only pay for the work that will be completed. Each project is evaluated on an individual basis, you add a budget to your project posting and this gives freelancers the opportunity to bid for the project based on your budget.
There are some optional extras to help your project posting stand out from the crowd, these are:
- €149 ($170) – This hires you some assistance from Twago staff to make your project job the best it can be.
- €49 ($55) – This fast-tracks your project so you receive offers within minutes.
- €79 ($90) – Limit proposals from freelancers that sign your NDA.
- €29 ($33) – Block your listing from search engines to limit it to just the Twago marketplace.
The site applies up-to-date SSL certificates on all monetary transactions making it safe and easy to send and receive payments.
Twago may not be the best fit for ongoing virtual assistant work. They explain that jobs on the platform “are generally limited in scope and duration and do not involve a traditional employer/employee relationship.”
