Freelancer FAQs

How many clients can I expect to get through Cool Wow Collective?

We can’t guarantee that every freelancer will land work, but we do guarantee you'll get exposure to be seen by a growing number of fashion and lifestyle brands. Cool Wow Collective is fast becoming known as the trusted directory to find a curated hub of dedicated, talented & experienced freelancers.


Who manages the client relationship?

You hold the relationship with the client.  Once you chat, quote and work with them they're all yours. We are not a talent or recruitment agency, we are a marketing platform to help you get noticed and build your professional profile. Make sure you ask new clients where they heard about you and share the epic work you complete with clients scored through Cool Wow Collective. 


Do clients have to pay to book freelancers?

Nope. Client's don't pay a thing to get access to our freelancers. We remove all the barriers to help get you great bookings with flourishing brands. 



Can I use the Cool Wow Collective logo in promotions?

Sure thing. If your application is successful and membership fee paid, you’ll be sent a Welcome Pack with goodies (think discounts) and everything you need to share the Cool Wow Collective love. After all, the more promotion each freelancer gives the Collective, the more great clients we can attract for you.

how much is the membership and how long does it last?  

Freelancer memberships are a single fee of AU$79 and lasts for 12 months. One month before your membership is up you’ll receive a reminder so you can make a call on staying part of the crew or not. 


WHAT benefits are included with the membership? 

You'll get to showcase your skills alongside a hand-picked bunch of top quality creatives, attract more dreamy cashed-up clients and grow your professional brand. We've also rustled up a few exclusive partner offers just for our members. Check out all the inclusions here


I don't exactly know what I need, can you help?

Totally!  If you are starting your own business or hitting a road-block on a new project, please get in touch and tell us all about it here. You'll be recommended a freelancer or two to help you move forward. And if we don't think we have the right fit we will let you know.  


How do i choose the right freelancer?

Please take some time to use the directory to find a freelancer here. You can filter by skill using the drop down menu. Once you land on someone that seems like a good fit get in touch directly. Tell them what you need in as much detail as possible (think timelines, budget etc). Ask them if this interests them (if they believe in what you are doing that's a big win), ask if they have experience with this type of project and ask them a little about their approach. Asking these questions will give you a good idea if you are the right fit. Good luck!


Do you have resources to work at my workplace?

As freelancers, we tend to work remotely, but depending on the project spending time with you in your business might be the best way for us to really understand your brand, your culture and your customer. There have been cases where a freelancer has chosen to work in-house for a day a week to or simply has regular video calls to keep the communication flowing. No matter if we are near or far, we like to consider ourselves as an extension of your team.

I'm a start-up business, what can i expect to pay for freelancers? 

Our freelancers have worked with many start-up brands and businesses and love enabling you to reach your business dreams. As a guide, most freelancers in Cool Wow Collective charge between AU$90 - AU$150  per hour depending on experience. They may quote you a flat fee or an hourly rate depending on your project needs. 


I have limited marketing capabilities but want to grow by business, can you help?

Yes!  When starting your own business you are after the creator and don't always have the time to learn everything about marketing, thats where we can help. As experienced professionals, we've worked with many small to medium creative businesses to help them take control of their brand and the way this is communicated. We would love to enable your business to take the next step in forming it's story and identity.


What exactly will I get from working with you?

Short answer, it depends. When you submit your brief we will decide if we are the right agency to help you. We can deliver anything from logo design to a written blog series to a social media strategy. We hope to delivery to your objectives and provide guidance and expertise along the way to ensure you are on-board with the process. No matter what the project, we aim to provide marketing solutions that you love and that ultimately deliver return on investment.
