Are you a member of a local community? Startup Study Group is a public Slack community of entrepreneurs, founders, freelancers, and investors. Like many large and business-oriented communities, Startup Study Group (SSG) members post job openings while others peruse public channels for work. This type of interaction is common in both online communities and co-working spaces. At our core, humanity is still very tribal. We prefer to find references through friends, colleagues, and acquaintances than a random service or platform online.
Gratify is a freelance platform that snaps onto your Slack workspace. At Gratify, we noticed an increasing amount of globalism in the gig economy, so we created Community Directory to provide an organic, convenient, and Slack-focused directory of local freelancers within a given community. Startup Study Group is a perfect fit for Community Directory and we’re super excited to partner with them on this for our first debut of the platform.
Members of Startup Study Group can outsource a variety of technical tasks, including but not limited to:
📝 Blog posts and copywriting content
✏️ FB, Instagram, and Google ads maintenance
🎨 Design (logos, gifs)
💾 Mobile and web development
👨👩👧👦 Lead generation
If you’re an SSG member, you can outsource tasks to SSG’s freelancer network in two ways:
helpfrom Slack to post a task to the network. Members can send tasks to the entire Gratify network or restrict their post to a specific community. Experts usually respond to a task post within 2–3 minutes.
The easiest way to get started is to 'Sign in with Slack' and post a task to the network using Automatch. Below is an example of a task you can create from Slack and post to both SSG experts and all of Gratify.
If you'd like to give Gratify a try, just 'Sign in with Slack'.
