LimeExchange Launches Buyer Rewards Program

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 16, 2009) - LimeExchange today announced the launch of its Buyer Rewards Program, a new program offering Reward Points towards future projects, free LimeExchange services and discounts, plus a catalogue of valuable gadgets and gift vouchers. One of the fastest growing service marketplaces, LimeExchange has registered more than 50,000 users since launching globally on July 30, 2008. Joining LimeExchange as a Member automatically enrolls you in the Rewards Program.

"We're seeing a lot of activity from buyers who have completed a project through LimeExchange and are now using our freelancer marketplace on a regular basis," said John Enright, VP Marketing & Business Development for LimeExchange. "We developed the Buyer Rewards program both to show our appreciation for customer loyalty and to further enhance the value of our service."

Reward points are accrued upon the successful completion of each project and are deposited directly into a member's LimeExchange account. Reward points are proportional to the total value of the completed project, and can be applied as a cash discount on future projects or redeemed for a variety of valuable gadgets such as ipods, digital cameras, iphones, camcorders, gift vouchers, and more. All projects posted and completed on LimeExchange from now until December 31st, 2009 are automatically eligible.

"As a first time user, I was impressed by the level of proactive, personalized support I received from LimeExchange, and was able to find a helpful and talented developer quickly and easily," said Ian Moore, Co-Owner of 20-20 Web Design, based in South Yorksire, UK. "The system is safe, secure and effective, and the Escrow-based payments, along with the Milestone based payments, helped me manage our project effectively. The Buyer Rewards Program has given me yet another reason to post high value projects on LimeExchange."

The LimeExchange service provider community features freelance professionals and small businesses in over 160 countries, specializing in areas such as graphic design, web development, software programming and writing and translation services. Businesses and individuals who are looking for resources on demand and an extended outsourced workforce can register and post a project free of charge, and receive proposals from talented professionals and small businesses that meet their criteria. Buyers can then choose the best proposal, negotiate terms of service, track and manage milestones and flexible payment schedules via a secure escrow account -- all within the LimeExchange interface.
