MeasureMatch is a two-sided professional services marketplace that is designed to make it easier for companies to find and hire high-quality Experts who are especially skilled in the areas of marketing technology, marketing analytics and market research. Many of these Experts are independent practitioners, but also part of independent consultancies and other types of services organisations.
Broadly, the services available from MeasureMatch Experts fall into three core areas of value: Technology, Analytics and Research. You could further segment these services down to advisory and execution services. Advisory services might encompass strategic guidance or solution design. Execution services might include systems implementation, configuration and/or integration. Using Marketing Technology as an example, because we are marketing and commerce focused, companies might choose to use MeasureMatch to find an Expert who can support or lead the deployment of a system like Decibel Insight for customer experience analytics or Adobe’s Dynamic Tag Management system for enterprise-wide, multi-channel data collection or Marketo for marketing automation. You can imagine how many other marketing technology-related services might be sought after by any number of companies around the globe. The same goes for Analytics and Research services. Essentially, it is up to MeasureMatch Buyers (i.e. the companies looking for and buying services) to let us or MeasureMatch Experts know what they need.
Depending on how you #measure it, MeasureMatch is the product James Sandoval's ~20 year digital marketing services career and 7+ years of entrepreneurial adventures focused on marketing technology sales and data services. Or, more specifically, MeasureMatch is the result of what he likes to call "entrepreneurial experiments" between November 2014 and March 2016 when, amongst other things, he attempted to merge several analytics consultancies across Europe. The merger didn't happen, but the experience was enlightening, inspiring and, importantly, it helped to shape what is now MeasureMatch.
Nearly all of the people involved in the development of the MeasureMatch service have been freelancers, entrepreneurs or worked in small companies at some time. We know what it's like to hunt for work, do the work, try to hunt for more work at the same time and, invariably, scrape through income-free periods of time. We know how hard it is to be organised, remain motivated, chase for the payment of invoices. It's a lot like the loneliness of the long distance runner. Part of MeasureMatch’s mission is to help them to run their #measure, #martech and #mrx marathons, in comfortable shoes, cheered on by and supported every step of the way, and to cross the finish line with a better result, every single time.
On one side, MeasureMatch is for contingent workers i.e. independent consultants and consultancies with outstanding technology, analytics and research skills and experience. And, of course, on the other side, it is for companies that need to solve related business problems and are open to hiring experts on-demand.
MeasureMatch is the provider of a marketplace and the infrastructure to enable Buyers and Experts to conduct a dialogue about prospective project engagements and enter into direct agreements for the provision of relevant project work. The relationship between MeasureMatch and Buyers is governed by the Terms of Service here
Yes, MeasureMatch, over time, will introduce and evolve screening processes for new and existing Experts to ensure we are supplying the best possible services professional to Buyers. We will also conduct identity verification and, when necessary, require the submission of one or more identity documents and/or profile photos.
Nothing. It doesn't cost a penny to register and create a MeasureMatch Expert profile. And it doesn't cost anything, except some time, for an Expert to enter into a conversation with a MeasureMatch buyer about a work opportunity. MeasureMatch currently captures 15% of each MeasureMatch work contract.
Start searching for Experts, strike up a conversation or three. We designed the MeasureMatch experience for Buyers to centre on these things and entering into project contracts. It’s worth noting that Experts can only start submitting Expressions of Interest in your project(s) after their profiles have reached a specific level of completion. In time, Experts will also need to successfully complete a skills, personality and identity screening process.
Start searching for projects and go back to your profile to ensure you’re positioning yourself and your skills as clearly and persuasively as possible. It is important to know that Experts can only submit an Expression of Interest in projects after their profiles are at a specific level of completion (see your profile for details).
