Gratify + Capital Factory

Gratify and Capital Factory Logo

Gratify is partnering with Capital Factory to build a Community Directory for all Capital Factory Members.

What is Gratify's Community Directory? It's a local, searchable, Slack-friendly directory of expert-level service providers within a given community. In this instance, it's a freelance platform for and consisting of only Capital Factory members.

Our core team has previously worked out of a WeWork and we frequently found ourselves networking and engaging with other experts within the building for all sourts of tasks. We specifically used one vendor to help us produce content for our product. In co-working spaces such as WeWork and Capital Factory, members can find freelancers for social media, web/mobile dev, technical writing, and a whole lot more without looking too far, but meeting the right person for the right task isn't easy. The organizers behind WeWork and Capital Factory do a great job of setting up networking events and getting members all to meet in person (for pizza, beer, etc), but Community Directory brings that experience into Slack. Once a Capital Factory member adds Gratify to their Slack workspace, they can post tasks to the internal Capital Factory network of vetted freelance experts, or browse the internal Community Directory to view past work, client feedback, and bio information.

We're starting to build Capital Factory's directory, if you'd like to register as an expert, click here (30-second application).

How can I post a task?

 You can post tasks to Capital Factory's freelancer network in two ways:

  1. ๐Ÿ“’ Browse the Directoryโ€Š (coming soon)*—โ€Šthe directory lists registered freelancers within the community. Click ‘View Profile’ to browse task history, profile information and more. If you’d like to chat with the freelancer, just press ‘Message’ to open up a chat with them in Slack.
  2. ๐Ÿ”ฎ Automatch from Slackโ€Š—โ€ŠSign in with Slack (in the header), then message the app help from Slack. You can post a task to the entire Gratify network or restrict the post to your specific community (eventually..by building). You'll usually get a response from an expert 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.
