Forage is a two-sided marketplace where companies hire freelancers to attend events and generate qualified leads.
Forage keeps an up-to-date Events Page with events all over the world. Companies can find events they think will have potential clients, and Foragers can find events that interest them. Forage connects companies to Foragers in a comprehensive platform where they can negotiate deals and complete payments.
Companies set the price they are willing to pay for attendance and a fee per qualified lead. Additionally, companies typically pay for event tickets and additional expenses such as parking.
After each event, Foragers are expected to share their leads with the company and create an email introduction. All leads are expected to be pre-approved by companies before Foragers connect them. Companies are expected to pay only for introductions where the person replies and sets up a call or meeting.
Forage takes a 10% fee from each party. For example, if you’re expected to make $200 as a Forager, you’ll bring home $180 (10% fee). As a company, if you’re expected to pay $200, you’ll pay $220 (10% fee).
Foragers have the flexibility to make more or less money, depending on how many events they attend and how much the companies pay. For example, if you earned $100 to attend an event and $20 per lead, and attended 2 events per week and generated 5 leads per event, you would earn an extra $1,440 per month (after Forage’s 10% fee).
No. You can use Forage whenever you want; you choose which events you want to attend. If you make more than $600 on Forage, you will need to file a 1099 form as an independent contractor.
