True Freelancer Checklist


In order to qualify as a true freelancer on Emissaries’ marketplace, talent should* meet the following criteria:

  • Registered as a DBA, LLC or corporation.

  • Use an EIN (Employer Identification Number) rather than a Social Security Number.

  • Willing to sign a contract for all new projects.

  • Fees are hourly, project or commission based, not daily or monthly based. Cover your own business and/or traveling expenses.

  • Make your services available to the relevant market and general public on a regular and consistent basis.

  • Market yourself as a consultant or freelancer via a website, portfolio, business cards, advertising, etc.

  • On a frequent basis, simultaneously provide services for several companies vs. strictly working for one company for a long period of time.

  • Work is typically done without a lot of supervision.

  • Have your own equipment, tools and materials vs. using companies’ equipment.

  • Invest in and maintain your own work facilities (can include home offices).
