The Reason Pay2Play and Freelance Sites Work


Through all the complaining and through all the scandal these types of sites will continue to work.  Do you want to know why?

Because they are customer focused.

Sites like,, and Fiverr have a good lock on getting more and more customers because they are there to serve them. 

Not us.

What I mean is that these sites know exactly where their money is coming from.  They strive every day to make it an easy UI UX experience for their customers.

Think about it.  When a freelancer complains about any of these sites, it is because of how it is affecting them.  

Sweetheart, I am sorry to tell you that you are just a service provider trying to use these sites to get work.  You are the one that is looking for work. These sites have found a way to get customers. You need to do the same if you want to get off the teet of some of these sites.

We can all take a lesson from them though.  They not only have figured out how to get people to their sites.  They have figured out how to get the lowest prices possible for their clients.

They make us compete for the business.

When you think about it, this is capitalism at its best.  It is all about supply and demand.

Is there a way you can compete with this?

Sure you can start your own site (too much money) or you can use some of these same social media strategies that they use.  Producing content for your niche would be a good start.

The fact is that as long as these sites focus more on the customer than on you, they will win.  Maybe it is time to stop complaining and learn to play the game.
