Outsourcing sites are extremely popular nowadays, both with people who want to find work online and with those who are seeking the skills of such workers.
Now there is a new site that has been added to the mix – ContractBot. The name apparently derives from the fact that the site is 99% automated.
One thing you will notice at the moment is that the site – which is based in Canada – is in its very early days. There is just a handful of jobs on there at the moment, although hopefully this will develop as the site gains traction and pace. It certainly looks promising and there are clear sections on the home page for both parties to use. You just have to click the appropriate section – blue if you want to find workers and green if you want to find contracts.
The main way that ContractBot differs from other outsourcing sites is that no fees are charged to users. The only fee they seem to take is one of 5% which is levied on all organisations when ContractBot transfers money to them. The site also has an affiliate program that looks promising and may help to bring in more visitors and users.
It is too early as yet to say whether ContractBot will be a success. On the one hand it has plenty of other similar sites to compete with. But on the other hand the no fee idea could be a winner.
