Buying and Selling Jobs at 199Jobs.com



As most of you already know, I am a work-at-home mom. I work as a transcriber in four transcribing companies, all freelance, and blog during my free time. The greatest thing I found about working freelance is the flexibility it offers me. I am grateful that I was introduced into this 'path' by my sister because I don't have to leave the comfort of my home anymore, making me always available to attend to the needs of my kids.

But there are rare times during the year when there's not so much transcriptions to be done (especially during end of a fiscal year). And this is when the freelancer that I am try to get some other kind of jobs to supplement my income.

I'm glad that here in the Philippines, there is a new jobs marketplace, a new marketplace for buying and selling simple services quickly, easily and affordably.  Perfect for a freelancer like me. All I have to do is sign up, post a job that I'd be willing to do for P199 and wait for a client to come in and purchase my service. This new marketplace can be found at 199Jobs.com. And as the name implies, people can now buy and sell services and small jobs, starting at P199.00

With 199Jobs, each individual can use their creativity to earn money online, whether to make a bit of extra on the side or turn it into something that supports their entire family. You can post any job that you want that you're sure you'll able to deliver to the client, something that you're really good at. My husband, for example, is really good at sketching and drawing so I'm convincing him to offer caricature and sketch painting service on the site. He'll earn while doing what he loves most doing, sketching. 

Here's how it works for freelancers and jobseekers:
 

The goal of 199Jobs is to connect buyers and sellers and make it easy for them to work together. Hence, this site is not only for job seekers and freelancers,  it is also for businesses needing help to get things done without the stress of hiring, interviewing and managing individuals. 199Jobs assists businesses and entrepreneurs get reliable, responsive and trustworthy people to help them build and grow their business. 

Whether you're a starting company or a big company needing to get simple things done, this is the place for you. If you're an busy individual who doesn't have the time for small tasks that need to be done, you can post what you need others to do for you at the site. If you need ghostwriters, someone to do social media shares for you, hold giveaway, do a review, design your blog, do graphics for you, you can find them at 199Jobs.com. The possibilities are endless.

And here's how to buy services at 199Jobs:

  21. Do you have to have a degree for this sis to do this type of job?

    ReplyDelete

    1. No, sis. You just need the skill to carry out the task that you're going to offer. But then, of course, having a certification or degree corresponding to your skill set would be an advantage to the seller, and will attract more buyers of the job.
