The digital age has come with a lot of innovation as regards work. However, with the unemployment rate in Africa is consistently rising, many young people have begun to find ways to fend for themselves using digital skills, and TERAWORK serves as Africa’s bridge between employers and skilled labour.
Since its establishment in 2017, like Fiverr, Upwork and other popular freelance sites, TERAWORK has successfully connected many freelancers to various employers.TERAWORK enables businesses/employers to meet and hire freelancers who are highly skilled in the areas of their service needs. For these businesses or employers, TERAWORK ensures quality service done at the fastest possible time.
Signing up on the platform is free, and that goes on to point to the brand’s passion for ensuring the delivery of quality service efficiently. Freelancers sign up on the platform by creating a stand-out profile in any of the 56 service categories that display their skills, past experiences, and convincing words to ensure that they are selling themselves well. The platform also has a work store that shows the jobs available on the site and lets freelancers send proposals to the clients.
As a buyer, all you need to do is sign up on the platform and send in your request for a quotation based on the type of job or skill you are looking to hire. You will get lots of proposals, and then you can select which proposal is better suited foryour project. You can also go through the profiles of freelancers and choose the freelancer you think has the adequate skills to get your job done for your project.
Payment is made when orders are made securely, and until the buyer verifies that the job is adequately done, the funds will be saved as escrow and not made accessible to the freelancer.
Despite the platform’s similarity to other freelance sites, TERAWORK stands out because of its deliberate and highly responsive customer service. In addition, TERAWORK charges as a token for each service between 7-13%, depending on your level within the platform. This is lower than the 15% charge on most freelance platforms, and for this small token, you are getting a great deal.
We know that the gig economy is here to stay. People with marketable skills in Africa can join TERAWORK, create an online portfolio, work for global clients and earn a decent income. This is an innovation in outsourcing. So, where do you stand in all of this mix? Sign up to be a part of the platform here.
