Today is a big day at Envato as we have a really exciting announcement to make. For the last three months, a new team has been hard at work deep in the bowels of Envato HQ (itâ€™s actually really nice!) on our latest product. Weâ€™re really pumped to share this with you and hope you can see the possibilities it will open up within the Envato ecosystem. Itâ€™s called Microlancer, and Collis wanted to record a little message to introduce it to you.
Microlancer is going to be a new way for freelancers to connect with buyers who are interested in getting small-scale creative jobs done simply, transparently, safely and quickly. We have built a platform which allows buyers to easily explore a world of different services they can buy, such as logo customisation, photo retouching and many more. We want to create a virtual shopfront for small creative services. Buyers will choose a service they want from a service provider they like. Theyâ€™ll be able to see upfront everything from price to turnaround time to number of revisions to work samples. Theyâ€™ll know exactly what theyâ€™re getting, no surprises. When theyâ€™re happy to proceed, weâ€™ll facilitate the transaction from start to finish.
We believe that for small jobs, it doesnâ€™t make sense for buyers to have different freelancers bid on their job and then assess whether those freelancers can do the job. At Microlancer weâ€™ll be reviewing all the services on the site, ensuring that buyers have a quality experience. Getting a little job done should be as easy as picking a great freelancer and getting started.
