Five out of six freelancers on AnyTask went the extra mile: Netherlands marketer

Kern Thompson said AnyTaskers exceeded his expectations by providing him with more deliverables than agreed upon purchase

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.

"I am very impressed with freelancers on AnyTask because I came across something I've never seen on Upwork or," said Kern Thompson, a 36-year-old photographer and expert in marketing and communications.

"Five out of six freelancers on AnyTask not only offered to go the extra mile, they actually did,” said Mr. Thompson, clarifying that the sixth completed the task to his entire satisfaction.

Kern explained AnyTask freelancers he's dealt with exceeded his expectations and among them are Qikfingers, JohnKazzy, Ellatyler, Gagbab, Izzyx6, and Logomaster.

“I’ll give an example. I asked for a market research on ebook sales and the freelancer delivered me the Excel sheet with all the statistics I needed. Shortly after, I got an extra document with more information, which the freelancer kindly explained to me,” he said.

Another AnyTasker provided Mr. Thompson with additional backlinks for a project he launched. “In general, most of them provided extra information or value without me even asking.”

Passion and dedication on AnyTask

"Freelancers on Upwork and lack the passion their AnyTask counterparts have," he emphasized. "The people on AnyTask have shown dedication and high levels of professionalism.

"AnyTask has become very useful to me," Kern added. "Their freelancers are highly reliable and are a great asset to me because I can comfortably dedicate my time to focus on what I am an expert on and have AnyTask freelancers do those tasks for which I lack skills and expertise."

Mr. Thompson said he's been a professional photographer and marketer for over nine years and has used freelance platforms for about five years.

Freelancers help fill the gaps

"I work with companies setting up their websites and creating marketing content. I also help them with brand awareness, and I have used Upwork and to fill the gaps, and I now only use AnyTask, except for one Upwork freelancer I have been working with for years now," he said.

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

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

FE NEWS: Why should you hire freelancers via online platforms?

He says he is very good at design, branding, and the conceptual side of things. "However, I hire freelancers because I require graphic designers, website coders and customization, writers, bloggers, and AnyTask has provided me with talented people who have delivered great quality work."

AnyTask launched in February 2020, and already over 563,000 people have registered to the website, where buyers can find more than 23,600 freelance tasks across dozens of categories and subcategories. The platform offers buyers 100% satisfaction, which means if they are not happy with their project's delivery, they get a full refund.


Buyer Testimonials
About AnyTask

Buy or sell digital tasks

Today’s leading freelancer 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 are 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. AnyTask is a new online marketplace, currently in BETA, that is designed to overcome this very limitation. While payment is still taken from the buyer’s credit or debit card, it is delivered seamlessly to the seller in Electroneum (ETN); a world leading mobile cryptocurrency. In turn, this enables the seller to receive payment without the need of a bank account. The ETN earned can be spent in a growing list of ways, such as topping up your phone, or converting into your local currency via an exchange or enterprising agent.

Zero seller fees

Furthermore, where other platforms charge sellers up to 20% in fees, AnyTask is entirely free to the seller. Launched currently in BETA, AnyTask is still undergoing final stages of development.
