WHY DO I WANT TO USE SCOPIC?

We save you money.
Recruiters or creative staffing agencies are a popular way to find freelancers. When you hire through one of these agencies, you can expect to pay between 30% and 100% of a hired freelancer’s rate, and up to a year’s salary if you choose to transition that freelancer to an employee. Your payment to Scopic is a set membership fee that you pay monthly or yearly, so you are free to browse and hire to your heart’s content without the fear of racking up additional costs. We estimate that you will receive a 100% return on investment by hiring just one freelancer through Scopic.

We save you time.
