When I first started trying to earn money at home, the hardest thing for me to do was find a place that allowed me to present my abilities to people. I have been a writer my entire life, and a very good one to top it off! I never thought that I was going to have to work so hard to find clients for my writing business. With the rise of video and audio products online and even in social media, it has become increasingly difficult to find a consistent flow of work that I could count on.
The reason why I like Gigbucks.com is because it gave me the opportunity to place my services in front of a lot of people, all of which have come to the site because they are looking to purchase something. Trust me, there is a big difference between trying to sell someone your service, and having them find you on their own. The difference is more sales!
The fact that I am able to set different price points for the different products that I have to offer allows me to be more dynamic in my service. I can offer quality article for a certain price, basic article for a lower price, and research heavy, technical pieces for an much higher price! This has allowed me to expand me reach to different customers who have different levels of needs, as well as different levels of income.
The other great thing about Gigbucks.com is the simplicity of the entire system, and my ability to market myself. There are other sites that are specifically made for freelance authors. The only problem is that those sites are crawling with authors who are willing to work for way more, and way less. It is really hard to stand out among other people who are all doing the same thing you are doing!
