Hello Product Hunt! After many months of hard work and learning from early customers, we are excited to announce Lorem's launch out of beta today. Charlie and I grew up building and designing websites for people and always ran into the same core issues on both sides of the table. As a site owner, how do I find high-quality, affordable talent that I can trust for both small fixes and bigger projects? As a freelancer, how do I find new clients on a consistent basis, avoid the price race to the bottom, and spend less time worrying about contracts/invoices/etc? Lorem turns the existing freelance marketplace model on its head. First, Lorem is embedded inside existing products (like WordPress & Squarespace) and is always a button click away. Within a few minutes, you get matched to the right expert for the job instead of searching through hundreds of developer profiles and hoping you pick the right person. From there, we've built awesome collaboration tools to streamline the process and securely handle access, permissions, and payment, all without ever leaving where you started. Our bread and butter is web dev/design tasks for small teams that don't have a developer on staff. We hope you enjoy it and would love to get your feedback. Our team will be hanging out here all day to answer your questions! Cheers, Sam

Lorem has been an absolute godsend for my freelance career. Such a refreshing breaks from platforms like upwork. Simply go along with your day as you normally would, and jobs just come to you. The best part of the platform is the expectation of quality: Clients expect quality developers, and I personally have only interacted with quality clients. Thank you so much Lorem Team for making my job easier, and connecting me with awesome business owners.

Love the video, @samwilcoxon. You might want to take a look at Intercom's new Messenger platform. I could imagine this integrating nicely with them.

Lorem has been one of the best services to come about in a very long time. I've had a countless number of projects that I was understaffed on that Lorem has helped me complete successfully! Fair prices, great folks, and fast service is all of what Lorem is about. I'll be using their service until the end of time, and look forward to seeing them grow for years to come.

Lorem is changing the game for freelancing platforms by connecting quality clients & work to freelancers! They are challenging the status quo for all freelancing networks, and I'm glad I made the switch from older platforms to Lorem. The two best aspects of being a part of Lorem network is: 1. Getting to know the founding team & receiving valuable help as a freelancer 2. Scheduling your freelance gigs, rates, & terms in RT. Lorem, all-around, has great leaders & a great product. It will be nice to see how their tool continues to evolve and offers valuable service to businesses. 🤓👍
