SproutGigs used to be called Picoworkers and the perfect platform for small gigs for business owners looking to hire out of house. Freelancer profiles are filtered according to category – Digital Marketing, Digital Writing, Graphic Design, Lifestyle (an eclectic mix of everything digital), Photo and Video, Web Design and Web Development. For any freelancer site, it’s important to use additional filters if you want guarantees – filters which include feedback. This is where SproutGigs isn’t so great. Although you can sort results according to feedback scores, you can only filter for category, location and price. There are plenty of jobs for freelancers but a huge amount of competition. One thing to mention is that freelancer stats don’t match – ‘jobs started’ and ‘tasks paid’ statistics can show huge discrepancies. This certainly shouldn’t stop you using SproutGigs, especially when you need to keep business costs low. Just make sure you find a freelancer with good feedback or a newcomer with a well-written or designed profile according to what you’re looking for and you’ll definitely reap rewards – just be prepared to do a lot of page scrolling.
