DevFinder is the new kid on the block, having come out of beta in late 2015. It's somewhat contrasting to Clutch because it goes to great pains to make things simple and easy for an audience that's primarily made up of potential clients. It also states that each listing is verified and, as far as we can tell, this is true. Of course, this type of editorial discretion will result in higher quality content which is good for everyone (and Google likes high quality content). DevFinder is aimed squarely at people who need web, mobile and app design and development services. It provides a lot of useful (and very easy to use) tools for its visitors. These include: Searching company and freelancer profiles (by location, type, price and budget, skills, years in business, size and experience); Browsing and filtering portfolio examples (with plenty of options); Ability to post a project for requesting estimates and proposals; A blog called "The Answers Blog" that contains searchable articles and how-tos on popular topics (such as price and how long it takes to build a website). Similar to Sortfolio (though a lot less expensive), DevFinder's upgraded Pro listings will display first and more prominently (they're larger and display a featured portfolio example in search results). Also, every member with a DevFinder company page (Basic or Pro) gets access to its pre-qualified lead generation marketplace - a nice touch.
- What you get: A dedicated business page with your logo, company name, dates joined and updated, description, location, website with link, phone number, business hours, year established, company size, skills, markets served, minimum budget, a dedicated contact form (inquiries are stored in your account), one portfolio example (with free account); a second page dedicated for your portfolio example that includes a screenshot, description, and details such as project type, industry, size of client, length of project, etc.; inclusion in both search results (one for searching companies and the other for searching portfolios); access to their lead marketplace; upgrade to paid to add seven more portfolio examples (that means you would have nine - yes 9 - pages on DevFinder dedicated to your company).
