Online freelancer says AnyTask has significantly impacted his life with 'unforseen merits'

The young Nigerian writer and researcher also said freelancing has made him who is today

Ogwuche Clement Ochera, 27, is a source of inspiration. As well as millions of Nigerians facing unemployment and financial instability, he's met many other challenges throughout his life, including the loss of his father, a pivotal moment upon which he has built, solidifying his values, principles, and professional ethics.

Clement, who goes by Writingpro on AnyTask, lives in Markudi, Nigeria. He works as a freelancer in a country where, according to a report by Techcabal, PayPal does not allow users to withdraw funds potentially due to the email fraud reputation the nation has globally.

'Freelancing made me what I am today'

Clement became a freelancer drawn by the potential of becoming self-employed and creating an international source of income to finance his personal business goals.

CREATIVE REVIEW: How outsourcing certain tasks can save your agency time and money

"Freelancing has impacted my life significantly in different ways," said Clement. "It has made me who I am today. I am a blogger, investor, university graduate. And all the while, I have not lost sight of my farming roots and philanthropic inclines." 

He founded the BoizQuarters Gospel Movement, an altruist organization that has helped many people during the pandemic.

FORBES: AnyTask is about to change all you know about the gig economy 

Clement freelanced on other leading platforms, including Fiverr. The problem with other top websites is the withdrawal of funds, which AnyTask resolved for him.

AnyTask is "unique. It pays its sellers immediately," he said. "A buyer marks a task as complete; no holding period like the 14 days or seven days before payment on Fiverr."

AnyTask, more than just an income opportunity

When asked how freelancing on AnyTask has made a difference in his life, Writingpro said: "I can only better describe it as 'unforeseen ways' because the sales and knowledge gained were unexpected."

He also said AnyTask has been for him more than just an income opportunity. "Putting aside my earnings, I've achieved greatly in terms of experience from the platform. Discipline and endurance are also a part of my earnings. It's safe to say that I earn more than ETN with AnyTask." 

SUNDAY TIMES: AnyTask, the launchpad for digital freelancers

The Nigerian freelancer said he had gained a lot of professional experience, discipline, and resilience. He says he makes it a point to give each task his all. "It is essential to approach each task with passion, dedication, and absolute focus.

"Buyer's satisfaction comes first . A happy buyer means a great reviews, and a good review brings about more buyers," he explained. "this is a cycle I advise my fellow freelancers to put close to the heart while on the field."

 

 

Seller Testimonials
About AnyTask

Buy or sell digital tasks

Today’s leading freelance platforms have made tremendous leaps forward in providing people with the ability to earn a living online whilst doing the tasks they love. Anything from making quick videos with your smartphone to logo design and translation services is sold online today, providing individuals and businesses with a cost-effective way of getting jobs done. You can get started as a seller with just a simple internet-enabled smartphone.

Sell without a bank account

However, these platforms have a major restriction, in that both buyer and seller require access to a bank account. This single restriction is stopping hundreds of millions of people in unbanked regions from selling their services online, and in turn, helping them to make a better living for themselves and their families. The AnyTask Platform is a new online marketplace matching Buyers and Sellers of digital Tasks and designed to overcome this limitation. While payment is still taken from the Buyer’s credit or debit card, it is delivered seamlessly to the Seller in ETN; a world-leading mobile cryptocurrency created by Electroneum Ltd. This enables the Seller to receive payment without the need for a bank account. The ETN earned can be spent in a growing list of ways, such as topping up your phone or converting it into your local currency via an exchange.

Zero Seller fees

Furthermore, where other platforms may charge Sellers up to 20% in fees, the AnyTask Platform is entirely free to the Seller. The AnyTask Platform continues to evolve with ongoing improvements since its launch in late 2019.
