PRESS RELEASE: Released January 31, 2018
Awards, skills, and work experience information of Alabama communications freelancers is at the new Find a Freelancer Program launched by Alabama Media Professionals
In January, National Public Radio did a week-long series on the rise in freelancing, saying it is now 20% of the workforce and expected to be 50% within a decade. One factor causing this is that businesses often need outside help:
Alabama Media Professionals, a professional nonprofit organization, has launched an innovative and convenient database of freelancers for Alabama large and small businesses to find the expert help they need.
AMP is made up of nearly 50 writers, photographers, voice over and television personalities, artists, web designers and related professionals. Most of them are freelancers, available for hire to assist in media, marketing and communications needs.
Searching the database is free. Business owners simply visit the website and click on the skill they need (writing, web design, artwork, etc.) and a list of AMP members who specialize in that area will be shown. No guarantee is given of job performance, but awards, work experience and primary skills are included to guide businesses to the person who might fit their needs.
Communications freelancers in Alabama who would like to have this exposure with their professional profile on the AMP website can join the organization through the website for $26. Becoming an AMP member includes having a profile on the website at no additional charge. The website manager, Tina Tidmore, contacts new members for professional information as a service to our members.
In addition to the Find a Freelancer Program, Alabama Media Professionals, a local affiliate of the National Federation of Press Women, has members of both genders and offers networking opportunities and education at monthly meetings and occasional workshops/conferences.
