Connor Gillivan – Inception of FreeeUp
Today we are joined by Connor Gillivan, the Chief Marketing Officer and co-founder of FreeeUp, a staff resourcing platform. Connor started his eCommerce business in 2009 helping suppliers sell through Amazon that eventually ventured into outsourcing.
This is more of the kind of the freelance area as opposed to far more structured outsourcing but it’s really good to have a chat with Connor about the inception of I supposed his career but also his journey to outsourcing as well.
Connor serves as the CMO of FreeeUp handling all marketing, advertising, content, partnerships, and website/software design. In the 3 short years that he’s been working on FreeeUp, they have grown their user base rapidly to over 15,000 clients from all over the world. FreeeUp also received over 150,000 applications from freelancers wanting to join the platform.
