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 Freelancer.com," 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.
“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 freelancer.com 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 Freelancer.com 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.
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.
