How It Works

  • First, you sign up as a service provider by clicking the Find work subsection and then filling in the required credentials. Once you have registered as a service provider you can log in from the login option to continue to find work.

    Once you fill in the required details and update your profile from the my profile section you will be eligible to find work. In order to update your profile, you will need to fill in your primary skillset (one or more) followed by secondary and tertiary skillsets. Post this you must choose a plan from the choose a plan section in order to continue finding work. The Broad Function Area pertains to the domain of your work for example Sales & Marketing, Cloud etc. You have 5 broad function areas that you can choose two from.

    Sub function Area can be defined as the domains under the major domain that you are most comfortable with a dropdown of 3 for each.

    Primary Skills and Secondary Skills are the skills/tasks or parts of projects that you are exceptional or experienced in and these pertain to your Broad function area. This is done in order to break the conventional boundaries of working in a closed work-structure. You also have a section where you can talk about your primary and secondary skills as to how you acquired them, how useful they have been and how, the projects you have undertaken using them and what value they add to your broad function area and sub function area.

    You can go to the Find Work Section to find work where you can apply to any offer that you like and propose a bid. A notification will come to you when a requirement is posted that is looking for your broad function area but this doesn't hinder you from other opportunities. You can also filter the type of work you are looking to undertake using the various filtering options.

    Bidding

    Once you have clicked the propose a bid option on the find work section you have to fill in the required details of the bid in order to confirm your bid. You can not make multiple bids for a single project so make sure you choose the right amount and ideation while describing your bid.

    Striking A Deal

    A deal is said to be struck when both the service provider, and the consumer agree to certain terms and conditions regarding the order of work, the amount of work, the deadlines, payments etc. These terms and conditions are set by the Service provider and the consumer respectively when they choose to set these during the bidding and posting the requirement processes respectively

    Approval of Deal (Service Provider Side)

    A Service Provider can accept a deal by accepting a price negotiated by the service provider and the client which is done through the bidding process. Once a bid is final and a deal is accepted or rejected, the outcome of it cannot be changed so please be wise while entering a bid amount in order to derive maximum utility from it.

    Clients
    You can get in touch with your Clients initially using the comment section under each bid and they can back to you using the same. Once your bid is accepted you can then proceed to talk to your client regarding the doubts they or you may have and also send attachments through the chat box. You can send texts in the message window where you can alter texts as per fonts and also send attachments to one another depending on the necessities.

    Milestones are used to define the deliverables you will submit, and the payment you will receive for those deliverables, during a fixed-price contract. As a freelancer or agency, you can help manage your fixed-price contracts by proposing changes to your client about active and future milestones. Together with your client, you can plan your deliverables and set expectations throughout the contract. You can propose additional milestones, and you can also request to delete or edit the amount and due date of any active or future milestones. Any changes that you propose will be sent to your client for review and they will have the option to accept or reject your suggestions.

    To interpret Milestones, let us take an example of Pizza Making. When you assign someone the project of making a pizza, you might want to not pay him entirely in advance and consecutively he wouldn't want the entire pay post making the entire pizza. So the solution to mitigate this problem is milestones where you can pay the service provider in steps like in this example, the client can pay the service provider a part of the fee when they make the pizza dough, a part of it when they apply the sauce and the final part when they bake it.

    Tip: Discuss any changes you would like to make with your client before submitting a request. Add or propose milestone changes.

    Choosing Between Task-based and Project Based Work A task-based requirement is essentially a shorter commitment that might particularly be a part of the project and not the project itself for that matter. Example: Making a short video for an ad campaign for a particular project/ enterprise. A project is one that is for a longer duration of time. Example: Designing an e-commerce website/app

    Web Checking/ Logging

    Clients can decide to monitor their service providers using Desk time, an app which would give the clients a real time view of the progress being made on the task/project given to the service providers. Clients can also opt out of this feature if they don't deem it to be necessary for the assigned task/project.

    This is basically a small hub where you get to know all the essential information after your requirements have been posted and/or accepted. Here you have all the necessary data already crunched and at your disposal. This consists of the information of the number of requirements you have posted, the responses on these requirements, the number of deals you have struck, and also a different column for task based and project based work.

    There are two types of modes when assigning a requirement i.e. Project based and task based. In project mode you have an option of choosing milestones or no milestones. When you choose a project based requirement, you'll see a Pop Up asking you about single claim or milestone based payouts which when approved can be paid by the customer using the pay now icon.

    For example, 3 milestones are set by the service provider which on the approval of the customer can be claimed after which the customer will have to approve of the work accomplished after every milestone as proposed by the service provider and after the approval the customer can pay the service provider by clicking on the pay now icon from where he will be directed to the razor pay gateway and they can pay by the method they choose to.
