Who know it would be this simple? Easy peasy.
Last week I stumbled upon the soft launch of a new service which strips away the worst of the online project based freelance marketplace. What’s left is an eloquent jobs platform for businesses seeking pre-qualified freelancers to help with their media and marketing needs.
On the surface, Freelanship provide talented Millennials with opportunities for paid portfolio projects. Dig deeper and you’ll see what founder (who has seen both sides of the equation) really wants to do is to help today’s young people gain valuable [paid] experience and for employers to find great talent to meet their marketing needs.
This is her answer to institutionalized unpaid internships which ultimately benefit neither students nor businesses. For Lauren, if the business and freelancer click and their relationship culminates in a full-time employment, or if the freelancer is able to raise rates and/or start a small business, well that’s hitting the ball out of the park.
Compare that to online freelance job sites like Fiver or UpWork, well there’s no comparison.
For a scathing critique of the current Fiver/UpWork online work environment, check out Laura’s recent post, 10 reasons I created my own marketplace and see what I mean.

Now Google Drive uses the same NLP (Natural Language Process) technology as standard search. In other words, it understands what you mean even if you don't use just the right words.
Now how cool is that?
Down memory lane ... don't forget 's stellar book on SEO ... still as valid and important today as it was when it was originally published. Check out this review.
For some reason, Digiday chose to do an article about AVD today. The upshot?
-- ... for niche players, the appeal is rather obvious: Amazon’s scale. Amazon claims Prime Video has “tens of millions” of subscribers.
-- _Amazon is clearly interested in the YouTube community. _
--Amazon also wants more TV networks and larger media companies to sign up
-- They had to go niche because that’s what a lot of [subscription video on demand] services are.
-- Unless you’re an 800-pound gorilla that can bring equal negotiating power, they’re starting at a 50-50 split,”
With that in mind, I took a year to listen & learn about social media. It took about nine months to feel as if I really “got it” (and another three to figure out my "niche”).
So, here is what I learned.
- Secrets of social media for small business
- Give it the best you’ve got and give it away freely.
- As in real life, it takes time to build trusting relationships.
- Also just as in real life, sincerity, honesty and an open heart help.
- When the customer/client/patient is ready to buy/act/choose,
- You’ will already be there, ready to sell/provide/serve.
- Consider it the “Universal Principle of Reciprocity.”
