Introducing Marketplace By Task Pigeon

When I first created Task Pigeon the development of the underlying task management dashboard was always the first step in what I saw as a much broader vision to create a scalable technology focused company.

Core to this long term vision is the fact that more than 40% of tasks people add to their to-do list are never completed.

When thinking about how to solve this issue over 12 months ago I realised that most task management applications don’t actually help you get things done. They merely act as a repository for things that you need to do.

Therefore to create a successful task management application you actually need to solve the underlying issue and help people move tasks off their to-do list and into the completed column.

That’s why I’m pleased to introduce to you “Marketplace By Task Pigeon”.

Marketplace by Task Pigeon is an integrated freelance marketplace that leverages our underlying task management application to make it easy to outsource digital tasks and ensure that the tasks you do add to your dashboard are actually done.

We achieve this by creating a “low-click” freelance marketplace where there is no bidding, no interviewing and no waiting for proposals. We source quality freelancers and lock in one low price. If you find yourself stretched for time you can click to outsource a task and ensure that it is no longer left sitting there on your to-do list.

Introducing Marketplace By Task Pigeon - Featured Tasks

To start with Marketplace by Task Pigeon will focus on a core number of digital tasks including:

  • Copywriting
  • Content Marketing / Blog Posts
  • Logo Design
  • Social Media Image Design
  • Virtual Assistants / Data Entry

The Virtual Assistant category is the one that we are perhaps most excited about. We all find ourselves having a list of important but time consuming tasks building up. Often they are not difficult to complete, they just involve a little bit of effort and time on the computer.

These tasks are often to push back, and push back, and push back. Before too long you realise that a task you created 3 weeks ago still hasn’t been started. With our Virtual Assistant packages you can buy a pre-set number of hours with a Virtual Assistant.

If you have something that you think will take an hour, buy an hour of their time. Have a bigger project that requires 20 hours. Then buy 20 hours. Again there is no waiting for proposals, interviewing candidates or submitting job posts. We take care of all of that for you and select the best freelancers to work on our platform.

Over time our goal is to add additional tasks and project categories to Marketplace by Task Pigeon. We want to create an integrated environment that allows you to outsource almost any task that you or your team could work on in-house.

While we still have a way to go to realise that complete vision we hope you will find the first steps we have taken in offering common digital based tasks on the Marketplace to be beneficial.

To celebrate the launch of Marketplace by Task Pigeon we are providing a 20% discount code to all Task Pigeon users. You must have an account on Task Pigeon to make use of the marketplace. At checkout you will then have the option to enter a discount code.

    Hi Paul.

    This idea looks very promising! But I have several questions:

    1. Quality of execution highly depends on specific person that doing task, how are you going to maintain consistent quality?
    2. Will it be non-personalized execution? Or I will be able to continue work with executor I liked?

    • Paul Towers

      Hi Artem,

      Thanks for your message and apologies for my delayed reply.

      1. Yes, I agree the quality will depend on the person completing the task. Initially all of the freelancers on the platform have actually performed work for me personally in one way or another. This allowed us to build the initial pool of freelancers. As we expand and add new freelancers we will invest our own money to have “test tasks” performed to ensure that the Freelancer can work to our required standard.

      In addition to that we have a money back guarantee. If you are not satisfied with the work let us know and we will refund the value of the task.

      2. This is something I personally had not considered but it is a great recommendation. Currently it is non-personalized, however I think having the ability to work with the same person time and time again would be valuable. I will add this to our roadmap so that we can offer this in the future.

      Thanks again for your support and if you have any other questions please dont hesitate to let me know.

      Paul

        Hi Paul! Thanks for detailed reply.

        I personally like non-personalized approach more. Just outsourcing work without thinking about person’s load on other tasks, illnes or any other reasons for delay can be a great improvement towards usual marketplaces like Upwork or Toptal.

        The only concert I have is quality. If you can guarantee it that’d be huge. I can imagine: no screening procedures, no verification, just press the button and get the result in predicted time frame.

        Side idea: maybe you can add automatic verification on some common SEO/content properties of the text(amount of keywords, proper keyword allocation etc). Something like Hemingway text editor. Because I personally as a tech person like metrics but not vague definition of quality.

        • Paul Towers

          Hi Artem

          Thank you for your message.

          On the quality front all of the freelancers are pre-vetted before coming onto the platform. On top of that we have a money back guarantee if you are not completely happy with the outcome.

          In time we will be able to surface reviews/feedback of the freelancer assigned to your task. If you are not happy with their reviews/examples of past work you can request another freelancer to work on the task instead.

          With tasks such as the VA by a set number of hours you will receive access to the time sheet and be able to see random screenshots of the freelancers screen every 10 minutes. This is currently handled by a 3rd party app but if provided free of charge to anyone hiring a VA through Marketplace.

          Good idea on the automatic verification on some SEO/content properties. We want to get to that point where its easy to know exactly what to expect with each task. The more certainty we can provide to users the better the outcome for us and our users.

          Thanks again for your comments and feedback.

          Paul
