Krop.com is the online home of Krop, a website that says they are a “Creative industry job board and portfolio hosting website used by the most talented candidates at all experience levels.”
How Does It Work?
Anyone who has tried working with a traditional freelance employment website before is likely aware that these sites are almost entirely preoccupied with money. Clients post a budget and then decide who to hire for their project predominantly based on which freelancer offers to do the job for the lowest amount of money.
Most reasonable people can agree that this isn’t a great way for anyone to work. Freelance employees should not be fighting to get the least amount of money for their work product, and clients shouldn’t be expecting the highest quality work from people asking the least amount of money.
Krop.com is hoping to change this freelance hiring dynamic, by providing a website specifically for people in the design industry, like Graphic Designers, Art Directors, Illustrators, Print Designers, Programmers, Copywriters, and many others, to host their portfolios and connect with potential clients.
Employers should also have an easy time finding the talent they need, because this website allows them to search by location, availability, specialty, education, experience, and more, and once they find a designer that fits their needs, you would be given complete contact details.
Unfortunately it does not appear that this website publishes any information at this time regarding the cost of their services for freelance designers, though other websites have quoted them as being around $10 a month.
If you are an employer that is planning on using this site to find a freelance designer, you can either choose to post jobs or to pay for an unlimited ability to search through their database. Posting a single job at this time is priced at $199, and this price is discounted the more job postings you buy at a single time, all the way down to $135 per posting when you buy 20 posts or more at one time. If you instead just wish to have unlimited search potential of their database, you can pay $299 per month.
Unfortunately this website does not appear to provide any information whatsoever regarding possible refunds at this time, neither on their website nor in their Terms and Conditions.
If you have encountered any kind of problem that you believe justifies a refund of your membership, posting, or database fees, you should contact their Customer Service team right away.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact their Customer Service team with questions, concerns, or complaints is to do so by phone at (323) 736-5033 or by email at Sales@Krop.com.
This company does appear to get excellent reviews from technology and freelance websites, and this company is considered a great option for people in the design industry who might be new to freelance employment and aren’t sure where to begin, because Krop walks you through the entire process of creating your profile and portfolio.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many other online forums that allow people to share their work with their community and with the general public for the purposes of hiring, so if Krop.com is not the place for you or if are simply looking for other spaces to post and promote your work, you should be able to find something that suits your needs.
