Does it make sense the creation of a new freelance exchange?

Hello. Wondered whether it makes sense to create in a Runet new freelance exchange, a slightly different concept from the currently existing.
We all know that the main problem freelance exchanges in inadequate customer and Amateurs performers.
We will not go into implementation details, but do you think that will be a success if the platform on which customers would be 90% sure that you will not get an unreliable performer, and the performers will also be sure that the exchange mainly conscious customers?

Would be interested to hear your reasoning on this.

Your question sounds like this: if I invent the cure for all diseases, humanity would be interested?
Well... theoretically, how would Yes, subject to the announced conditions will be. But whether it will be really done or life will make their adjustments? The question is rhetorical.

In my opinion, for this exchange will be a place (though a couple of exchanges there are — there is a selection of customers and performers). But the problem in the promotion of such exchanges — at the same time there need to lure good customers, and good performers. It is difficult and without sufficient money, it is hardly possible.

P. S. Look for a relatively new creation Voropaeva (one of the founders, former co-owner and gen. the Director of the exchange fl.ru)
had about this creation is not the best impression. Moderation is opaque and without any Liba feedback. - joanne.Cart commented on July 2nd 19 at 17:49
Possible. I'm not talking about quality, and cited as an example that there are such examples :) - kenton.Huel55 commented on July 2nd 19 at 17:52

The question is, what can You offer the community to interest him?

Something new - You are unlikely to invent.
For example, how You will raise the confidence of the parties to the transaction to their service BEFORE REGISTRATION?... So I say that is unreal.
And if this was real, then the issue would not have arisen.

I must say that the tests are "pass the 1000-th level of Sokoban and get a chance to register" here will not help and will only make things worse...

Already have apwork
The problem of the local market is not unreliable customers / performers and level of payment

And, as correctly noted xmoonlight, the distrust between economic agents
as if 50% of the problem, the rest is the distrust of all parties to the transaction!) - joanne.Cart commented on July 2nd 19 at 17:53
: economical => economic )) - kenton.Huel55 commented on July 2nd 19 at 17:56
Upwork unstable and its future is causing issues. The level of payment, especially given modern course in Russian freelance really low. - Kyleigh_Hills commented on July 2nd 19 at 17:59

We will not go into implementation details

Here they interesting.
How will you determine the reliability of the contractor and the adequacy of the customer?
A guarantee for reliability/adequacy'll give?

In theory, Yes.

Too few good exchanges. There is almost no competition.

But practically - no.

Too much guano, and so. Hell will break.

It's human nature. You realize that going against the basic principle - "we would help"?


We will not go into implementation details, but do you think that will be a success if the platform on which customers would be 90% sure that you will not get an unreliable performer, and the performers will also be sure that the exchange mainly conscious customers?


You have discovered the philosopher's stone?
If Yes, then you'll be Golden.
Here I have clearly explained about some of the rashness and foolishness of my idea, but let me answer you :).

"You realize that going against the basic principle - "we would help"?" - You are right, but not completely. You're not going to argue with what is (albeit very small) percentage of customers who have the principle "We have the maximum quality for a reasonable payment." Here are some of these customers I talking about. In turn there is also a small percentage of artists, all professionals. Often these two people is quite difficult to meet in view of the fact that the first because of its technical incompetence choose pretty mediocre customers (and not always based on the principle "we could use cheaper", there probably depends on how the performer knows how to advertise), and the second is not find good orders and customers, just because I want to eat now, but wait and look for something worthwhile there is no time.

This something was the idea to these problems in the field of freelancing was not (or almost not standing). I agree with all the comment that if it was so simple and easy, it would already have done so, but again, did not agree to end. Almost all freelance exchanges (at least in the Internet) do not care deeply what their audience is. The main thing that they paid for the rest by and large, to spit (of course, to a reasonable extent). They do at least some filtering of his audience, began to lose profits, and they need it :).

And of course I totally agree with all comment on the complexity of the problem of selecting people who would fit under the definition of "good customer/contractor". I'm no expert, but on the other hand, it seems to me that this task is not so very heavy and large can be resolved.

Well, about the problems of promotion and other financial aspects I agree with everyone: even if there is this magic pill, it will need a lot of money to convince the first customers to take. - joanne.Cart commented on July 2nd 19 at 18:03

In view of nemassovoy these people - the classic exchange is not necessary.
And you need something done toptopal - there's another search engine for customers.

about customers, you almost forcibly want to make happy.
;)
I can assure you if a man REALLY SHOULD be, and he HAS the capacity, the experts find.

For example, among friends your friends for recommendations. Or turning to firms specializing in software development, and not to the private frilansery.

If appeals to non-specialists - so the customer is not very much and it was necessary (or he has no money), and not because the customer is incompetent.

Because people learn from their mistakes quickly - and if the customer to the second or third attempt to hire a specialist still continues to take anybody, it is impenetrably stupid Question: do you like this customer?


and the second is not find good orders and customers, just because I want to eat now, but wait and look for something worthwhile there is no time.


Good performers WORK in BULK, they are all worth it.
If you do not understand this fact should not be taken for the project.

That's about the performers mediocre level, then Yes, you're right.
Such can for something to eat, nothing to be taken for the dumping orders. - kenton.Huel55 commented on July 2nd 19 at 18:06
: agree with everything. Still, the idea is very raw and I'm not competent in this matter.
Thank you very much for detailed answers. - Kyleigh_Hills commented on July 2nd 19 at 18:09
