The Process

Do you send me multiple candidates?

We use a combination of artificial and human intelligence to match marketing talent to customer needs and projects. 

The AI scans through millions of potential data points to speed up the process, then our talent team hand-matches the right marketer based on skills, experience, industry, company stage, and availability.

We match you with one marketer at a time, and 90% of our clients move forward with their first match. We pride ourselves on getting it right the first time.

How does your screening process ensure quality candidates that meet our requirements?

We get hundreds of marketing applicants a month and accept less than 5%. Here is how we do it.

Every freelancer application is reviewed for length and quality of past experience. We then set up a preliminary phone screen to determine subject matter expertise, communication skills, and professionalism.

After the preliminary screen, each candidate does a video interview with a subject matter expert to vet their channel specific skills and core competencies. Most of our marketers only qualify for subject matter expertise in a single channel. We don’t place marketers for projects on channels that they are not an expert in.

Only candidates that pass all parts of the interview will be accepted into the network. This is less than 5%.

What happens if I'm not satisfied with my marketer?‍

If you are not satisfied with your marketer, we can re-match you with someone new. We vet and stand by our marketer’s channel expertise, but understand there is more than skills and experience that make a match a good fit for both sides. We’ll work with you to find the perfect match for your project.

Are there any recruiting costs?

No! We don’t charge any upfront recruiting on contract fees. We’ll match you with a marketer and set-up a 30-minute intro call for free.


Why do brands choose to work with MarketerHire over an agency or a full-time hire?

Hiring a full-time employee can take months, and you often end up with the wrong fit. Working with an agency gives more flexibility, but at a high-cost –– including fees for success and fees for termination. 

Our rigorous freelancer recruiting and screening process ensures we get the best marketing experts on the platform. As marketers ourselves, we look for proven experts with experience, passion, and drive. And then, we match those freelancers with your brand’s needs in as little as 48 hours so you can hit the ground running in as little as one week.

Here is a helpful chart on how we compare:

Can MarketerHire marketers work from our office?

Where are your marketers?

We have marketers located globally with a majority located in the U.S.A.


Why is there a minimum of $1,500 a month for a MarketerHire freelancer?

There is a $1,500 minimum per marketing resource which translates to about 10-20 hours of a marketer's time per month. This is to ensure the marketer can commit availability to you vs. overbooking their time.

How do you determine pricing?

Our experts set their own rates based on a number of factors, including specialty, years of experience, and more. While all marketers are highly-vetted, typically more specialized needs mean higher rates.

While rates may vary, pricing generally falls into the following ranges:

  • Hourly: $80-$160+/hour
  • Part-time (20% discount for 20-hour commitment): $1200-$2400+/week
  • Full-time (20% discount for 40-hour commitment): $2400-$4800+/week

To ensure freelancers are placed on high-quality projects, our projects also include a commitment of $1,500 minimum per month. There are no placement fees, termination fees, or long-term contracts.

How often do I get billed and what payments can I use?

We invoice clients weekly and clients can review charges before they get processed. We currently accept all major credit cards and ACH. We also can integrate with Gusto and other HR and payroll software. Just ask, and we’ll get you set up.

How much do you charge?

Our experts set their own rates based on a number of factors, including marketing specialty, years of experience, location, and more. While all marketers are highly-vetted through our multi-part vetting system, typically more specialized needs mean higher rates.

While rates may vary, general pricing falls into the following ranges:

10 hours/week: $3,000-$6,000/month 20 hours/week: $5,500-$11,000/month 40 hours/week: $9,000-$20,000/month ‍
