Discount Freelance Gigs Platforms – Will They Start Expanding the Entire Market?                  

When reviewing freelance gig platforms, the very first thing you consider is total cost, and if the platform hides the cost then move on.  The large gig platforms charge as high as 27-28% of every dollar. In today’s internet, this is online robbery.

When the investment world went to the discounted platform, not only did they take market share from their more expensive alternatives, but they opened up new markets that greatly expanded the total investment market– especially in the total number of participants.  We realize this is not an apples-to-apples comparison, but almost all markets expand when the costs to the individual participants are reduced.

Turkey Opens the Gates, Greeks Meet Migrants with Tear Gas

The troops of the Greek Army conducted extensive target practice on the islands east of the Aegean Sea and the river Evros on Monday.

Low Cost / Discount Freelance Gig Platforms are Here – Has the Time Past for the Gouging High-priced Gig Platform?

First you need to understand gig platforms are a different category from freelance jobs. The whole concept, structure and solutions are uniquely different.  So today we are only reviewing gig platforms.

The first thing you need to review and measure is the total cost of a gig platform. When you look at the total costs of the leading gig platforms today, it definitely has a price-shocking feel to it. For example the leading platform charges sellers 20%, then often adds on 5% more to the buyers, and then possibly an additional 2-3% for service fees. The total costs come in as high as 27-28%! That leaves only 73 cents of every dollar for the gig provider doing the actual work. That is just gut-wrenchingly high.
