The service platform for freelancers and employers, QuiGig, has recently announced a service platform that will aid them in finding and securing contract-based work digitally. The platform will debut later in 2018 on desktop and mobile, and is currently open to investors through its fundraising campaign - those who support the "Quig" token will have access to state-of-the-art simplicity in regards to finding freelance employment.
The modern marketplace no longer has to be a 9-to-5 world where workers clock in during the week and drop out during the weekends. Rather, technology has made it possible for freelancers – and there were 41 million of them in America, according to an April 2018 USA Today article – to work their own hours and pick their jobs. For those toiling away for little pay every Monday through Friday, this likely sounds like a dream. It's not, and QuiGig is here to show how to turn the dream into a reality.
Using digital platforms to land freelance or short-term contract-based work isn't an entirely new concept. The key difference – and reason why millions of those freelancers and customers will be flocking to QuiGig in the next few years – is that there are significant economic and convenience hurdles to using those other websites. Hefty up-front or upon-payment fees discourage many and a sea of spam posts means time wasted on finding real jobs. With QuiGig, the proprietary "Quig" tokens will filter out the noise and put freelancers in touch with those offering work. This is where you come in, QuiGig investor, and a recently-launched crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo awaits your assistance.
Through its fundraising page, QuiGig hopes to attract individuals who see the promise that this platform will deliver. This means both providing meaningful work to tens of millions of Americans as well as building the gig economy of the future. To ensure a robust amount of offerings, QuiGig has developed a way to re-direct 25 percent (about 1 million) of search engine results to more than 7 million QuiGig pages across 8,000 U.S. cities. While this goes to show what QuiGig has planned for the next few years, it's also part of the promise that this platform is making to investors. Those who contribute to QuiGig's initial fundraising effort are joining a movement that's going to see exponential user growth in the near future as well as become the go-to service for finding and advertising short-term contract-based gigs. The vision that this company has for the future is clear, but it hopes that investors will see what an expanded user base will mean for the framework that makes in-app interactions possible.
Freelancers are also welcomed to join the QuiGig community pre-launch - those who do will be awarded a percentage of bonus Quigs for any financial offers. Those who participate early could earn anywhere from 5,500 to 1 million Quigs for platform capabilities.
