Crowdsite Launches Twitter-Style Marketplace For Freelance Services

Sep 24, 2015

Crowdsite's new Shout service says it is as easy as Twitter and yet more powerful than Freelancer. It matches freelancers and those seeking services, based on a 140-character long interactive message. 

With the Crowdsite Shout service you can describe your project in 140 characters, use hashtags, and add location information. Shout your message to the Crowd and you'll get real-time notifications of freelancers who are interested. Crowdsite's live chat helps you to get to know the freelancers. Once you have found the freelancer that fits your requirements you can invite him/her to your project, work out a deal, exchange files, and manage payments worldwide. 

Google has incorporated Crowdsite into the top tier of the Google Launchpad program. On top of the $100,000 contribution the company is receiving, Crowdsite's incorporation in the Launchpad program lets it fully leverage its services on the Google App Engine platform.
