Detailed description of Picoworkers (Small Jobs & Ongoing Jobs)

The whole website is custom coded in PHP from scratch. Using MySql database with optimized tables (innoDB). Basically it is a very simple environment easy to setup on any web server.

The idea behind Picoworkers is to build a service which will connect Employers with Workers on a long-term basis. While it seems the main part are Small Jobs, this was not the primary objective. Small Jobs are here just to attract Workers which should later find long-term jobs in Ongoing Jobs section. Maybe the Ongoing Jobs is a bit hard to understand for an average visitor but once you (Employer) take a look at it, you will understand that via Ongoing Jobs you can hire someone who will (examples):

1. Create blog posts for you and publish them on daily basis

2. Post your website (or product) description to different forums and community forums on daily or weekly basis

3. Hire someone who will work on your online store - enter products, upload photos, write description, etc.

4. Hire a worker who will prepare Statistics for you every day and send you results.


Ongoing Jobs are great for repetitive tasks where you want to hire same person again and again and that is a person you trust! When posting new Ongoing Job (I need someone to update my web shop), you write requirements, then workers will apply for position. You review applications and you can message all workers who have applied (you can chat with them). Only after you realize a person understands requirements you hire that worker (a Project is created). Worker will work on your job and submit tasks (proofs) on regular basis, you will simply review and approve tasks and pay.

For each Project you open you can define the price you want to pay per task (for example you ask your worker to post reviews about your product and you are willing to pay $1.50 per review). Later you can increase or decrease task payment but both of you must agree to the change. Employer can close the project and worker can resign if he/she wants.

ONGOING JOBS ARE VERY USEFUL IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU NEED - IF YOU NEED A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT (A SECRETARY) THIS IS THE WAY TO GO.


Why are you selling the business?

I don't have time to focus on this and promote it. It needs more marketing to get more Employers on board and boost number of jobs available. As I am focusing to blockchain programming more, it is hard for me to spend lots of time on Picoworkers. Rather than closing it down, I would like to find a buyer who can do some marketing and make the site bigger. I am willing to be around with suggestions, bugs removal and other information the buyer will need. It is not a problem to stay around for a year or two.

How does the business generate revenue?

Employers deposit money and run jobs (sign up, advertise my product, vote for me, create websites for me, etc.) and website charges fee on each task completed. In addition to this there is a job approval fee (both can be changed). Withdrawal fee is also in place. It would be easy to increase fees or implement additional fees like: Exposed listing, Faster withdrawal,...

Deposits are currently low but that should be increased through promoting Picoworkers on SEO blogs. It is not hard to do that. What is also good to know is that 20-25% of all deposits stay in the system (some workers don't reach payout limit, some Employers never use all the money, etc.)

Some features:

- Admin: Scheduler for approving jobs to run later (automatically)
- Two referal programs (Deposits, Tasks)
- Messaging system
- Huge backend adminstration with graphs
- Every setting is available in config script. If you want to change fees, Minimum number of tasks,... you simply edit a corrensponding value.
- PHP code well documented, every function has description and comments so new coders will understand easily. The code is written clearly without unnecessary complicated steps

Are there any expenses for the business? If so, what are they?

Just VPS hosting which is currently at $12 but that depends on what hosting company you will select.

What marketing initiatives have been used for this business?

Nothing much yet, just building Facebook page.

How can the future owner improve the business?

I described most of this above. My opinion is that Ongoing Jobs should be NR1 section in Picoworkers as they are extremely useful. Other possibility is to add another section similar to Fiverr, where workers offer services they offer. There are many options on what can be done.


What is required to keep the business operational?

Marketing and one person to check the website status, new signups, reviewing jobs, approving jobs, monitoring. It requires 1-2 hours per day.

How does the business generate revenue?
By selling service. Employers deposit money, workers finish task and earn. The website takes commission on tasks, withdrawals, approval of jobs, etc.

Are there any expenses for the business? If so, what are they?
Hosting costs only - Currently $12 per month for VPS.

What marketing initiatives have been used for this business?
Building Facebook community - our page has 5,500 members. Other than that I didn't do marketing because I am not good at it. This website needs an owner who can do a bit of marketing and SEO.

How can the future owner improve the business?
More marketing - SEO, PPC, social media, ask bloggers to write review of the website.

If you are interested drop me a PM and I will be glad to answer your questions.
