Once you are accepted to join Traktion, you will receive matches to pre-vetted, high-quality companies based on your preferences and verified expertise. Traktion only matches each company to a maximum of 3 freelance marketers for which they are the best fit for, thus drastically reduces the amount of time marketers may waste speaking to bad quality and bad-fit leads.
Our clients include SMEs, startups and scale-ups, as well as some larger brands. We’ve worked with Clim8 Invest, Pact Coffee, Monzo as well as Universal Music.
Firstly a client submits a brief on our website, and when they do we always speak with them.
We speak with them to:
Get a better understanding of their requirements, including what their ultimate goal is. Sometimes clients say they want to achieve something by doing something that doesn’t quite make sense so we advise them and steer them in the right direction here to ensure the project is a success.
Get an understanding of what skills and expertise they have currently - both in-house and any external providers they are already working with - so that the marketer we match them with can slot in nicely with their existing setup.
Get an idea of the way they like to work - some clients want someone who feels like a member of their team, whereas others want someone who will do the work autonomously and then come back with a presentation at the end.
Get clarity on timings, deliverables and budgets - the ultimate fee agreed os determined by you and the client together after meeting but we include a budget range in every briefing.
We then update the brief following this call to add more information in, and match marketers to the project.
Once you are accepted to join Traktion you will receive matches to pre-vetted, high-quality companies based on your preferences and verified expertise. In order to provide a good service to both companies and marketers we only match marketers who are a good fit for individual briefs.
Many clients do not want their projects to be seen by potentially hundreds of people and come to Traktion for help in saving time and hassle.
We provide them with only a few marketers who are the right fit for their project, and who are available and interested.This approach also saves you time and hassle because you know you are only being matched to projects where you have a good chance of winning, and that you are a good fit for.

Platform build and management: You can use our platform to match with companies, book meetings, receive secure payments, and more.
