PeoplePerHour: find hourly talent for small businesses

PeoplePerHour benefits small business professionals that may not afford a new hire, and helps freelancers to earn a positive reputation to garner more business – it’s a win-win situation in a down economy.

Pay by the hour

Through their online platform, PeoplePerHour connects freelance talent to small businesses across the world. PeoplePerHour CEO Xenios Thrasyvoulou predicts that by 2020, over half of the West’s workforce will be made up of freelancers using cloud based file sharing services, Skype and platforms like theirs.

Small businesses can locate hourly help on projects ranging from graphic design, ghost writing, to legal or tech help. Below is the full list of skills offered through the platform:

The platform is not just useful for businesses looking to hire some freelance help rather than hire a new employee, it is obviously also useful for freelancers.

Greta Stojanovic, Director of Public Relations as PeoplePerHour told AGBeat, “What’s great about this concept is that people who are employed full time can dip their toes in the water and find work in the hours outside of the standard 9-5. Once a person builds a reputation on the platform, the chances of getting hired more regularly significantly increase,” which removes instability which is a standard risk for freelancers.

In January, we outlined 10 tasks to hire out to freelance talent, and AGBeat columnist Charlene Jimenez noted, “Getting things done in a timely manner can give your business the potential to be a well-oiled, money-making machine! One task at a time will get you there. And the best part is that you don’t even have to complete the tasks yourself.”

Business decision makers may be a single person operating an entire business that just needs help with some data entry, or a team leader within a major company that needs a flyer makeover – the talent is out there and can be found at reasonable hourly rates on sites like PeoplePerHour. It can be a time saver and a money saver, rather than hiring a new team member or trying to overcome the learning curve yourself.
