The snow has melted, the weather is warmer, and our allergies are hitting us like a Tyson uppercut. Besides that last one, this is a great thing for the Siide job market. With more people willing to go outside and do things, and with the extra sunlight from daylights savings, there’s even more opportunity to make extra money and get stuff done.
Because of that, we’re making some updates to help make your experience even better. The first, and most important, is that you’ll now have the ability to rate other users you’ve done business with, as well as see their feedback from others when considering them for a job or skill.
This is important for a number of reasons. First is that Siide.com will now offer a significant advantage over other sites with no built-in security. This helps with not only giving you confidence in your transaction, but you know you won’t be getting any emails offering you a King’s ransom from Uganda. It’s all built on reputation now. So, when you’re performing jobs for others, remember that your future marketability will be at stake. Do an awesome job, and you’re more likely to get hired in the future by others. Do a sub-par or incomplete job, and you won’t get hired for jobs or for your skills. Plus, we’ll unleash the Kraken of Discipline if you slip up too many times.
Aside from that, we’ve got some great spring cleaning refreshers coming, including:
An updated, easier-to-use interface
A cleaner, simpler interface with a new search functionality.
Expiration dates on jobs or skills you’ve posted
Create higher demand for your skill or job by setting a day/time limit.
Add a photo to your listing
Increases exposure and lets you add even more detail to your posts.
More comprehensive profile pages
Gives people an even better look at the person they’re doing business with and allows you to further differentiate yourself.
The option to put a location on your listing
Directly appeal to other users that are nearby
All in all, we think these are great updates that will help to improve your experience and get even more out of Siide. You will now have more flexibility and more opportunity to make your posts unique and with more detail than ever. If you have questions, or would like to leave us feedback on the new or existing features on Siide, feel free to email us.
