Of the more than 200,000 people who apply to join the Toptal network each year, fewer than 3% make the cut.

  • What is the no-risk trial period for Toptal Keyword researchers?

    We make sure that each engagement between you and your Keyword researcher begins with a trial period of up to two weeks. This means that you have time to confirm the engagement will be successful. If you’re completely satisfied with the results, we’ll bill you for the time and continue the engagement for as long as you’d like. If you’re not completely satisfied, you won’t be billed. From there, we can either part ways, or we can provide you with another expert who may be a better fit and with whom we will begin a second, no-risk trial.
