Freelancers & Influencers lose out on up to 50% commissions to Freelance marketplaces and agencies. Linkstar provides them with an instant landing page to sell directly to clients via payment and social media integrations. Think of it as a Shopify for Freelancers & Influencers with the twist being that Linkstar also helps them get matched with businesses. They focus on a subscription rather than commission based model.
Linkstar was founded by childhood friends Aizaz Nayyer, Adeel Abid and Ali Raza. Aizaz previously held a regional role in marketing at Daraz (Alibaba) while Adeel worked in the UK at Banco Santander. Ali has extensive experience in digital agencies where he has managed major local and international brands. They have also previously co-founded a freelance marketplace in 2021 called Savvy, which they scaled to six digit dollar revenues and from which they gathered key learnings to innovate and create Linkstar in 2022.
