Today the freelance market for skilled workers is out performing 70% of traditional jobs according to CNBC. By 2020, over 40% of the US workforce will be freelancing. The fast growth of the freelance market is driven by the Human Cloud. We believe the fastest growth in the Human Could is the gig market.
The Human Cloud is a sub-segment of the gig economy that includes firms that match workers to work through an online/digital platform such as Communalmp.com. This is a sub-unit of the freelance industry where all work arrangements are established and completed via a single digital online platform. The Human Cloud had very robust growth in 2019 with total sales of $126 billhttps://communalnews.com/2019/09/16/are-gig-economy-platforms-changing-the-worlds-job-structures/ion so far is changing the traditional job world.
The biggest ways the freelance gig economy benefits businesses:
What is a Freelance Business Gig? Workers are the most flexible option for gig employers. They can often level the playing field with larger more well established competition, by providing access to very large, talented, diverse, and highly skilled resources from around the world, at affordable prices. Gig workers allow for flexible scale and deployment opportunities, leading to a more efficient use of working capital.
Freelance business services are specialized services you can acquire through the internet. If you hire an attorney to create a will, use Uber, or hire a coder to fix your website, these are specialized business services. However, we are mainly referring to the unique specialized business services you can acquire over a freelance gig platform.
Here are a couple of true stories about how freelance online services have helped our many small businesses:
A freelance gig platform is a listing of gigs (jobs) for business services. The number of gigs on a platform can be unlimited. The world is moving to micro specialists– someone who is an expert in a small specialized or micro field. A gig is a specialized service, such as writing superior press releases, or a product launch specialist. If you’re a specialist in say hydroponics, WordPress, or cryptocurrency, it can be difficult for potential employers to find your services. Maybe you want to get onto a platform that supports business, that will help you access an industry with explosive growth? Being on a diversified gig platform, people can drill down and find more specific services that they need.
There’s a strong need for product marketing specialization within the freelance gigs marketplace. With the gig industry for services exploding, one of the best new opportunities is going to be in product marketing. Companies are having a very hard time launching products in the new digital age. Amazon was the avenue of choice until it became a place for unlimited fake reviews. Today’s business leaders know that competing on the Amazon platform means committing to joining in the Jeff Bezos illegal fake review fraud. So that opens up other options including: video, social media, influencers, websites, and online publishers of articles and news. However, according to current surveys, only 1% of gig workers uses these alternative platforms, so those who gain a significant foothold could do very well financially.
IBM closed the Redhat $34 billion dollar buyout about one month ago. Now comes the hard work for the everyday companies that utilize Redhat’s software. Redhat is not only the fastest growing server software, but the largest open source company in the world (they build and support open source products from open source projects). Redhat has millions of computers running on their source code. The big question is can they migrate IBM hardware and software without giving up their open sources leadership? Plus, can Redhat adapt to IBM’s culture and bureaucracies without giving up key personnel?
The best paying gigs often require a highly specialized field of expertise in a robust growth industry. A high skill level requirement often reduces the number of direct competitors. The high level of robust growth means lots of job opportunities. Thus through supply and demand (remember economics 101 and the laws of the invisible hand by Adam Smith?) these factors work together to create an outstanding future until the number of high level professionals grows to meet demand, or the market growth slows down significantly, to a level that allows professional support to keep up. If your new in the computer field and at the beginning a new freelance gig career these to not only look good today, but the long tern position of these industries look to be longer than most carriers last.
A gig is a temporary and flexible job, on location or through the internet, hired as an independent contractor (often known as freelancers) for people or companies looking for specialized services instead of hiring full-time employees. Often one full-time employee can not handle the plethora of different skills needed. So, instead of having a full-time employee, you can (for example) have 4-5 gig contractors splitting the workload, with each specialist solving a specific task.
