A marketer from Rotterdam, Netherlands, came across something on AnyTask that impressed him massively and that he had never before seen on the other leading freelance platform he uses.

Kern Thompson, a 36-year-old photographer, and expert marketer, says he experienced something on he'd never seen on UpWork.

"Out of the six different taskers or I think, five went that extra mile and I thought to myself I have to tip them," Kern said. ​ "That's such a wonderful thing. Nobody on UpWork ever did more than I asked. No one and that's what I love about this platform."

Kern said that the AnyTask freelancers he dealt with that exceeded his expectations are Qikfingers, JohnKazzy, Ellatyler, Gagbab, Izzyx6, and Logomaster. "I really feel their passion, I really see that dedication and that is wonderful," he said.

He explained that he asked for market research on ebook sales and the freelancer he worked with delivered an Excel sheet with all the statistics he required. And he also got "an extra document with more information, which the freelancer kindly explained to me,” he said.

Mr. Thompson also said AnyTask is very useful to him because online freelancers help him with tasks he has no skills or time to do himself. Freelancers free up his time so he can focus on what is more important to him, he added.

Mr. Thompson suggested that freelancers are a fantastic resource for small businesses, independent contractors, entrepreneurs, and anybody who requires specific talent from people with particular skills and expertise.

He has purchased an average of 20 tasks a year for the last five years to complement the services he provides.

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.
