Not sure just thinking out loud here, but I know foreclosure rates are very high and banks hate sitting on all that inventory they are not equipped to manage. Could you think of a way to work in real estate by helping banks manage this inventory? Maybe auctions, rentals, fixing up and keeping an eye on the properties...
I understand the forum but not sure I get where the Q&A script comes into play for a staffing site, can you please explain that?
Eddie there is kubelance and ilance if you are interested in an elance type job posting.
Okay. I`m still working through my idea.
How does the idea of starting a blog first while I work on building the freelance base and actual paid part of the site up sound? Then I could collect information from freelancers and attorneys who are interested in the project and keep them updated on the progress.
At the rate I`m going it seems like I will be using Word Press CMS, phpBB and AMember. Then I`ll probably need some help to make sure I have everything setup right and some graphic assistance to make it nice and professional.
Thanks for clarifying. The problem I`d like to solve is getting solo attorneys (and perhaps very small office attorneys) the help they need to both grow and run their practice without having to pay to run an ad, screen the results, then actually hire an employee - which they don`t really always need or want do do. Instead, for a small membership fee they can have access to a qualified stable of freelancers who can assist them on a per project or on going basis. The atty wins as they don`t have to pay for an ad and they are working with a freelancer vs. employee. They could come to the forum at 8PM and post they need something transcribed and probably get it done that night, for an example.
Also they win because the service providers provide member attorneys a small discount. The freelancers win because they are not paying just to be members. Membership is free to qualified freelancers, they only provide a small discount on work they actually bill for.
