How The World Of Freelance MicroJobs Has Changed

By: Dianna Smith

The world of freelance has changed a lot within the last 15 - 20 years. Global economy affects our freelance businesses day in and day out, whether we realize it or not. Most of us as freelancers, work hard building our expertise. The freelance marketplace, fueled by technology, has become a whole lot bigger. Or maybe the world became a lot smaller, whichever way you choose to look at it. Yes, we're in a global economy but many freelancers are living, and working as though we are not.

Years ago, freelancing businesses were mostly local, dealing with local clients and competing with other freelancers for the work. Today, however, you will find that many freelancers are able to work from the comfort of their own home, making all the money they need from home. This is the ideal situation for a Mom who wants to be a stay at home mom, taking care of the kids and cutting down on the babysitting bill. This is also the perfect thing for the person who is handicapped. Or the older person who just doesn't like to be bothered with driving to work and back every day. The ability to be able to work at home and make a decent living at being able to do so has really exploded over the last few years.

There are a lot of freelance sites out there, yet not all of them are worth the time and effort you're willing to put into them. You may not make ANY money from some, and yet on others you may be the next big thing. The biggest thing is what are you selling? And how are you promoting it? A well written gig, will be sure to get you the amount of sales you're looking for. Look at other gigs for examples on what is a well written MicroJob gig and what is not. This, is easy to tell by the amount of sales they have. Everybody has something to give, you just need to figure out what you can give!

A great site to begin selling your gigs on is The layout of this site is different from most of the traditional gig sites, for example fiverr. This is a refreshing rendition. Within just 2 months, the site has gotten over 3,000 gigs and built a huge business from this. Every seller and buyer must be verified and is required to pay $1 to even post a gig. That is only one of the many benefits to this site. That way you know who you're dealing with AND you get paid directly instead of having to go through a third party! The site is spam free and scam free. If a gig is not delivered in time, it is protected through PayPal. Then there is the ability to be able to use HTML in your gigs and place clickable links inside your ad. The ability to collect your clients information such as phone numbers and email addresses is an amazing plus about All other gig sites will not allow you to do that. The reason they don't allow you to do so is so that THEY control your business, and how many customers you get and how much traffic your gig gets. But the reason you started working at home was so that you COULD have your own business, so at they allow you to be able to do so without a hitch.

I reccommend that you check out jobzweb as soon as possible, you will find it well worth your time!
