Warrior Forum joins the Freelancer.com Family

by 570 comments
Hi everyone,

I started Warrior Forum back in 1997 with the goal of creating a community of like minded internet marketers to share ideas, learn from each other and build their online empires. In 17 years I am proud to say that our community has grown to over 732,000 members strong, making us the world’s largest internet marketing forum.

Today I am happy to announce that Warrior Forum will become part of the Freelancer.com family. I’ve spent a long time thinking about what the best next step should be and I feel certain that Freelancer.com will be able to provide Warrior Forum with the resources, energy and time required to continue the community and improve it to make it even bigger and better.

Freelancer.com is the world’s largest outsourcing and freelancing marketplace with a community of over 10.8 million skilled professionals from all over the globe. They are growing quickly and have participated in forums just like you and I.

Warrior Forum will remain independent to Freelancer.com and will have a separate dedicated team to better support you. I know they are excited to be joining our great community and will be working alongside us to take Warrior Forum to the next level. You’ll receive an introduction email from Freelancer.com shortly.

I look forward to this exciting new phase of Warrior Forum and hope you can join me in welcoming Freelancer.com!

      I'm glad to see that long time members of the forum will be integrated to the operations. This certainly settles concerns as it helps to see that there are decision makers who are aware of the culture

      I think this is an excellent move for WF members and freelancer. (though we'll see how it goes)

    Congratulations Allen, and great idea

    I'm extremely excited to see this partnership. I love both Warrior Forum & Freelancer.

    I've been making money on WF via WSOs for over 5 years now. It's wonderful to see the WSO price drop. What an excellent way to provide immediate value to the core members here.

    It's also exciting to think about the possibilities on the horizon from this partnership.

    Matt, you posted your personal email... that really shows a lot of character and let's us know that you actually care about the people in this community.

    Thanks for the update Allen, can't wait to see how this grows!

    In all honesty, I'm not so sure that lowering the prices on WSO's is a great move that will improve the quality of the forum. The $40 price point eliminates just about the right amount of crap being posted. I also imagine that with the new $20 lower fee, a WSO post will also disappear from the first page even faster than they already do. Not very attractive for advertisers. Just my 2 cents.
    • Profile picture of the author natethegreat7037
      Interesting, indeed!

      This could be something quite special if executed properly.

      Besides, I think I've put off not being a War Room member long enough, anyway.

      This is a good point. On the flip-side, with more resources available comes more opportunity for better moderation and filtration of "junk" products.

      Hey Arnold, thanks for your feedback. You make a good point. We'll certainly be constantly monitoring this to see what impact it has. We'll also be making sure the moderation process is suitable. They've all done a great job so far!

      Feel free to let me know if you have any other suggestions or feedback.
