Combine these numbers with the Covid-19 pandemic and the projected GDP is now expected to decline year over year by 3%.

They are developing a global low cost platform in news and gig services where India has become the seconded largest country in readership and contributions, behind only the Untied States. “We would like to thank you for your support,” the company said in a statement.
FGG Low Cost Marketplace have been around for about a year with very strong (almost exponential) growth in visitors, posts, and global penetration. With their low cost and global market, FGG Low Cost Marketplace allows a growing number of freelance gig Buyer and Sellers to save and make more money.
When selecting or working with a gig platform or marketplace, whether buying or selling gigs, you need to understand: what is the total cost? You should always try to compare the total cost of a gig platform so you know what you’re dealing with. Often the higher percentage the gig provider takes or charges, the more confusing or complicated they make it in presenting those costs; so if it’s hard to understand the total cost on a platform, that means they are often very high and don’t want to openly disclose the costs.
Freelance Global Gigs (FGG) has increase the number of Buyers by over 175% in the first 20 days of April. The number of Sellers was also up over 85% for the same period. This does not include any integration from the Communal News (CN) Contributors or Subscribers.
Communal News growth has also been phenomenal– the news service often has over 10,000 visitors in a day. Soon when you sign up for one service, you will get access to both services.

With Freelance Global Gigs (FGG) Low Cost Marketplace that outstanding growth in buyers, up over 65%, is from just the first eight days in April. That is very exciting and unbelievable growth. This shows that being integrated with a global newspaper will greatly help your business.
When products and services move to low-cost, more advanced platforms they often help expand the entire marketplace. When reviewing gig platforms, the very first thing you review is total cost.

You need to understand “gigs” and “gig platforms” are different from freelance jobs. This articles is focused on gig-based platforms. The very first thing you need to look at is total cost. If you look at the overall total costs, many of the gig platform (including the largest gig platform) have total costs that come in at over 27-28%.
So if you’re a buyer and seller conducting a transaction, these platforms could make well over 25% of the profit from your activities. That is just way to much for the internet age.
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.

When reviewing freelance gig platforms we recommend the first item you consider is total cost. Many of the large gig platforms charge very aggressive rates; some as high as 27-28% of every dollar. Thus, if you are working on a gig platform charging such a high rate, we would recommend that you consider a slow plan to migrate off it. Over time you should make more money. With every dollar you earn (everything being equal) the buyer and seller are paying double the transaction fees of low-cost gig platforms (only 12%). That is substantial, especially over several years.
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.
