Marketplaces connect research clients with freelancers, consultants, agencies or specialists. Some operate a ‘pay-to-pitch’ model; others take a fee based on the overall project value.
- Insight Exchange is a marketplace for connecting research buyers with research specialists. Buyers post their project requirements and the most relevant matches are identified by the Insight Exchange team. Rates and project fees are negotiated directly between the specialist and the buyer; project fees are deposited in escrow and stage payments are made against specific milestones; platform fees are 10%. The marketplace is currently in beta launch in Australia and New Zealand.
