Our New Advertisers
Today I’d like to welcome our new advertisers. We are very pleased to have Rackspace, Light and JobsandGigs with us this month. Our advertisers give us the support to keep on doing what we do, and hopefully do it even better!
We’ve loved Rackspace’s dedicated hosting for a long time – ever since one of their team liaised with FlashDen’s programmer at 11pm CDT… for an hour… from his house! When they say they offer fanatical support they really mean it. Rackspace deals in whats known as managed hosting services, so they aren’t a budget host, but they are a bargain for what you get.
If you have a website that cannot go down or you are running a client hosting business on the side as so many web freelancers do, and you want professionals available any time you need them, fast tier 1 bandwidth that is burstable (in case you get a huge surge of traffic one day), a service that is as reliable as they come and a webhost that will scale effortlessly, then Rackspace are the web hosts for you.
Light is a content management system that designers can onsell to their clients on a subscription. Light is a product of a really cool company called ElementFusion who are also responsible for some other neat apps that we’ve mentioned on FSw before including Breeze, Icebrrg and Water. But back to Light, this product is truly handy when it comes to giving your clients a site that they can actually manage (so you don’t have to field all those trivial yet always seemingly urgent text updates), plus since its a subscription based product you can create a continuous revenue stream for yourself, so you earn even when you’re holidaying in Barbados!
JobsandGigs is the design and development job network. They are a new face on the block, but are already getting some very high end jobs on the site (think Digg, The New York Times and CNET Networks). If you’re looking for some talent, Luke at Jobs and Gigs has offered a special deal for FSw readers – use the promotional code FREELANCESWITCH when submitting an ad and he’ll give your ad a free renewal worth $75 for freelance ads and $199 for job ads. If you’re in the market for new work, Jobs and Gigs is definitely one to watch. And also in a mark of Australian solidarity, he lives in sunny Sydney too!
Please support our advertisers so they’ll continue to support us!
