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.

Providing Low Cost Global Freelance Gigs to Germany and the German Language

The number of independent / freelance workers has increased steadily over the past twenty years in Germany, from half a million people in 1992 to over 1.3 currently within a population base that has barely grown.

Now the low-cost digital platform in Germany and the German language has created a crisis for the salaried traditional workers in Germany. With Germany historically a very protected labor market, the freelance gig providers have become very challenging to the entire traditional German work structure.  Germany has traditionally developed their own Deutschland companies that often compete directly with large US companies such as Uber, forcing that ride share app to leave important and large German markets.

What is a Freelance Gig? How Does a Freelance Gig Freelance Marketplace Work?

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.
