After six years and hundreds of jobs outsourced to freelancers on Fiverr, Upwork, 99Designs, and PeoplePerHour, Mr. Homewood has a very clear idea of what he needs when seeking online talent.
“I find online outsourcing via freelance platforms to be the most powerful tool for small businesses as well as others that require remote talent to help with specific tasks,” he said. “It is a great feeling to know that while you sleep, somebody in a different time zone is working for you.”
“I have purchased over 40 freelance tasks on AnyTask,” he said. “I have to say I was stunned to see the amazing talent on that platform… honestly, I was not expecting to be.”
Why outsource work to talented freelancers on AnyTask
The British marketing guru says he decided to only use AnyTask after various tasks completed by AnyTaskers. “The work that was delivered to me was brilliant and I can’t conform to less because that is what my clients expect from me as well.”
Paul also likes AnyTask over the other leading platforms because it “is an opportunity to give people work who wouldn’t otherwise have access to the global digital economy because they are unbanked. It is a great opportunity to make a difference in the life of very talented people.”
The freelancing couple from Romania
With over a thousand high-quality video editing and production gigs sold in four years to clients around the world, including Middle East, Asia, and the United States, George and Cinthya Ivan of Ivan Studio have demonstrated why they’ve been so successful on AnyTask.
When you take into account the nine years of video editing and producing experience and the passion they display, it comes to no surprise that the couple from Romania are among the top talents on the global freelance platform that is powered by the award-winning crypto startup from the UK, Electroneum.
An inspirational story by a talented freelancer
Joseph “QikFingers” Ogechukwu was born in the northern Nigerian state of Kaduna, but he, his three siblings, mother, and father, were forced to move south to Port Harcourt fleeing from the religious violence that has affected the country since 1953. He overcame adversity and when he grew up and enrolled in university, his father died. He decided to honor his dad by finishing his degree in Computer Science and helping his family too.
“Over the past four to five years, clients from different parts of the world have purchased several hundred freelance gigs from me,” said the young man, whose freelance username is Qikfingers. “I have many repeat customers, and since 2013, I have never had a bad review.”
AnyTask, empowering the unbanked
AnyTask, powered by the award-winning, UK-based crypto startup Electroneum, went into soft launch in mid-February. The objective behind the new freelance platform is to empower the unbanked and those living in developing countries by providing them access to the global digital economy without requiring a bank account or PayPal. Freelancers don’t pay fees or commissions and buyers pay a 5% surcharge, which as much less than other leading freelance platforms.
In countries like Nigeria, where freelancers face many barriers and restrictions posed by other online marketplaces, AnyTask is the right solution as they do not have to pay 20% fees and commissions, which to many may not sound like much, but in countries where the minimum wage is about US$2 a day, that extra income makes a huge difference.
