So, you either are looking for a Steemgig or you are offering to hire a Steemian for a Steemgig? If you're not sure how to format your post for a Steemgig, here are some guidelines. Many of us are working behind the scenes to make Steemgigs successful, so following these simple steps will help us, which in turn will help you.

STEP ONE:

Please use the word, 'STEEMGIG' as the first word in your post title.

Example title for someone wanting to find paid work:

STEEMGIG: I Can Create Photocollages For You In Exchange For 10 Steem

Example title for someone wanting to hire Steemians:

STEEMGIG: I Will Pay You 15 Steem To Edit My Video

See this example post to learn how to be clear

Please notice how these titles are specific. Do not make your titles vague! If I can't understand what your are offering, then no one will bother reading your post. THIS IS A KEY POINT. Make your message clear and concise. Using too many words, is just confusing, no one has time to figure out your meaning! No one can read minds.

CLEAR TITLES ARE IMPORTANT!

STEP TWO:

Use the Steemit tag: steemgigs as your very first tag for your post. You need to have it as your first tag because other applications that we use are programmed only to collect the first tag. If you use steemgigs as your second tag, your post won't be collected. This is important.

STEP THREE

Show off your work, in picture form, or description. Post links to your professional pages, websites, and use customer testimonials. Explain exactly what you are offering or what you are wanting to pay for.

STEP FOUR:

If you're a new Steemit user, you would be wise to start forming friendships in here. People will not trust you if you're not connected to others. That's how it works in here. Build up your relationships, comment on other people's posts, and help out as much as you can. This will show people that you are a valuable member of Steemit, not just a user.

STEP FIVE:

Post your Steemgig in the #SteemGigs channel in Steemit Chat: https://steemit.chat/home
I just created a channel in Steemit Chat so we can collect all these Steemgigs in one area, working together to bring some organization and methods for this.

STEP SIX:

Tweet on Twitter using the right tag and mentions:

Post your Steemgig on Twitter and mention our account, @steemgigs. Also, use the hashtag #steemgigs in the body of your tweet. If you don't have a Twitter account, make one. We want to disrupt Fiverr, so we need your help in accomplishing this goal. This helps spread your Steemgig to the broader social media sphere. You might want to also mention @steemit, so that the official account can spread your message too.

So, who is working behind the scenes on #Steemgigs?

Well our official Steemgigs account is here: https://steemit.com/@steemgigs so be sure and follow us on Steemit. Steemgigs is the brainchild of @surpassinggoogle. I had a similar idea that I wrote about last year, but @surpassinggoogle is the one whose dream this is....he dreams of creating 5000 Steemgigs for our community, and I want to help as much as possible with this dream.

People who are working behind the scenes to make Steemgigs successful:
@surpassinggoogle, @virtualgrowth, @kus-knee, @thatsweeneyguy, @avarice, @fisteganos, myself and please add your name in the comments below if you would like to help with this project. I don't know if I missed some people, I probably did.....let me know your level of interest and let's see how we can work together.

And please read from @thatsweeneyguy:

"For everyone else, I'll soon be writing a daily article in an upcoming Steem E-zine, all about what steemgigs are being offered and requested. I'll likely also write about successful connections made with steemgigs.

If you have a story about completing a steemgig, or finding someone who can do the work you need done, post these in the steemgigs channel on steemit.chat as well!

Can't wait to see what sort of gigs people get going, and to hear amazing success stories!"

I'm an idea person, not a programmer, so we need to get better organized to make this successful. It's getting hard to find all the posts and take action.

Thank you!

Would like to see Steem gigs disrupt fiverr. cool idea.

·

yes, me too. I think Fiverr is too exlpoitative, and we don't need any more of that in the world. people already have a hard enough time trying to survive.

·
·

righty right! Fiverr is total exploitation. In the end, the only winners are Fiverr.
All the best with #steemgig !

People are thoughtful and bringing some innovation into steemit. Amazing. Go guys.... I am in.

Ooh this is so great information ! I'm already reflecting what gigs I could offer LoL...thanks a lot for this valuable post @stellabelle up&resteemedredim.png, keeping the info near me ^_^

·
·
·

hahaha ! so would adore to do that ! 😁😁

I just posted a new steemgig, then i went to steemgigs and seen this post. I'm not sure how I did. but I think I did alright. Excluding twitter. I don't have twitter. but thanks for all you do stellabelle and let me know if I can help in any way. I will join the steemgigs team

I'd love to be on steemgig. thanks for sharing.

·

followed, I'll make a post for #steemgig real soon.

Thanks for sharing @stellabelle! Gonna have to look further into this and get it rolling

I'm very happy to see this post do well @stellabelle :) To the moon. WOO.
time for bed lol :(

Great advice and thanks for formalising a standard for how to create a #steemgigs post - I certainly could have used this when I created mine ^_^

For reference, I'm also a programmer that is open to working on a project.

·

ok, let's chat in steemit.chat.
i'd be interested in hearing your ideas for how to organize steemgigs. when do you have time to chat?

·
·

I think that it is about time that I joined steemit.chat. I have a bit of time now and then perhaps sometime later this evening.

·
·
·

I'm all about the NOW. I have a tough time scheduling anything in advance....ADD....and i'm too busy, working on like 5 projects at once. Now is good for me...

·
·
·
·

I sent you a direct message - are you busy again now?

·
·
·
·

I really like your post @stellabelle, you're a very nice person

·
·
·
·
·

nice? well, I have nice moments. That's all I'm going to say.

·
·
·

Welcome to the community its a pleasure to have you here!

·

Im interested in contributing money and ideas and marketing to projects. Im also a newb.

Cool!! I did not know about steem gigs. Time to do some more reading! Being here on Steem is the most fun I have had reading in a long time.

·

Yes ,this is what we need . Respect ❤

valuable info resteemed.. I enjoy reading your comments when I come across them. I can see steemit has a learning curve as with anything new to me. I am now following @steemgigs .. thanks . .. be back on later 8iAbe445T.png

·

thank you

·
·

I watched your you tube link. You made me laugh. haha

Thanks for the mention, @stellabelle!

For everyone else, I'll soon be writing a daily article in an upcoming Steem E-zine, all about what steemgigs are being offered and requested. I'll likely also write about successful connections made with steemgigs.

If you have a story about completing a steemgig, or finding someone who can do the work you need done, post these in the steemgigs channel on steemit.chat as well!

Can't wait to see what sort of gigs people get going, and to hear amazing success stories!

·

i am so glad you stepped up. I had wanted to write about it in a magazine on here, but i am too busy to do it. so you saved the day....I'd like to do some artwork for it though....

·
·

Artwork would be great!

·

Followed ya, will be looking for your articles.

@stellabelle - what exactly is the steemgig? I never heard about that before and from this post it sounds like an job ad. Am I right?

hmmm. a gig that pays in cryptocurrency on steemit. sweet ;) that is a great idea!!!! should be an added tab on steemit

·

yes once we get really organized, it will be.

Great great great!... I already wrote a steemgig, but surely will do it again following your guide... Quick question: I can work on several gigs, like music production, composition, performance, audio edit, video edit, spanish translate etc, even math and physics... Should i make 1 steemgig post for each skill? or should i make 1 steemgig with all my skills?

·

One Steemgig for each skill.
Think micro gigs.

·
·

That sounds good!, it could also make micro-gigs within each skill right?, like in music production: 1 steemgig for guitar recording, another one for audio mixing etc... Going to think this deeply and get ready...

·
·
·

cool I'll check this out. Thank you for the how to guide.

Wow this is really cool, I bet having a gig economy attached to steem will definitely increase its value and utility

very good post. I want to translate it to Persian. May I?

·

OF COURSE! YES! you don't need to ask permission. Just do it and keep all the rewards. Thanks

This is funny ...it's like one path leads to the next! So I'm an idea person. I write down ten ideas a day everyday... JAMES ALTUCHER IDEA... but anything from farming , ginseng, finance , travel, sports, fitness, family etc ...but pulling everything together in a functional format is somewhat of a struggle... (I have used fiverr in the past ) but now steemgigs sounds good so I'm going to read the story you linked!

·

yeah, i am an idea person too...steemit is perfect and steemgigs too...it thrives on decentralized variety

·
·

Decentralized!!!!

this is a good information !.... I love it !

Great!
I'm a Fiverr member since a year, and I'm not very successful. And the 20% commission for the Fiverr is too high. I'm going to move all my gigs here and I'm looking for new ideas which I can accomplish in my ability while I gain more skills.
Here is my Fiverr account: https://www.fiverr.com/kalemandra

·

if you have a good gig, this is also a good alternative to fiverr. Lots of SEO people over here and you can charge more. http://www.konker.io/ I use many services over there.

Thanks for this post I've heard steemgigs mentioned a few times, now I know what it is and I'll have to start thinking how I can get involved, thanks.

Thank you for this useful post. And the possiblities of #steemgigs sets my mind on fire!!!

This post received a 67% upvote from @randowhale thanks to @stellabelle! For more information, click here!

Thanks for guide @stellabelle .. I hope I can start soon :) but still thinking what to offer 😄

Thanks for the guidance, it helped me a lot

·

i am glad, you're welcome

What an amazing how to post ! Really enjoyed ! Upvoted, resteemed and followed ! Keep up the great work!

Great to see steemgig picking up steam. There are still so many people that are yet to know about it but we won't stop spreading the word!

·

oh dear @fisteganos, we have only just begun. It will get bigger, much bigger, and I do think you are the poster boy. It was your story that caught my eye

So much informative and fruitful post. Thank you very much @stellabelle for your effort !

great post2 white.jpg

@akkha

@foways you follow steemgigs

I have been looking for remote accounting jobs to begin to work myself out of the office and into a more nomadic life. This could be the ticket.

Wow, this is incredible. I have joined steemit a few days ago, and I spent a lot of time exploring the topics. I've seen a lot of strong and devoted communities around, but this is the one I think will be huge in future (think fiverr.com, just without their ridiculous 20% fee). Looking forward to see this become a thing.

·

you've entered the rabbit hole. Prepare for your fantasies to come true.

Great overview. Maybe we can offer some type of format post(ing) that people may find in our chat channel on steemit.chat. We have #steemgigs on steemit.com and #steemgigs on steemit.chat. Look forward to what we all have to offer with SteemGigs!

·

well, we need a programmer now.

Looks like the Steemgigs project is progressing!

·

it's gaining steem for sure.

This is great! I was just thinking about the possibility of something like this. I've been here about three weeks now, and it sure is exciting to watch this platform evolve before my eyes.

·

yes, it's just beginning.

maybe should be similar to taskrabbit. get the community to know each other too.

Some good advice.

This is great. Innovation and more function for the community! Is there a way to save this
post so i can find it again?

·

i don't know how to save anything here.

·
·

I think if I resteem a post then it shows in my feed. A lot of good stuff here, much more intelligent than other places, but I dont have time to read every post I want to!

Very detailed, great job @stellabelle I resteemed this I hope that's ok :)

·

of course! I hope that many do! This is to help people become more successful. i do not think many people even know it exists.

·
·

I think your hard work is starting to pay off, before you know it this will be a huge success. :) They way you back a project with your passion is felt through the steemit community.

Very good tips thank you very much for sharing your post with the community @stellabelle

Cool! Thanks for the advice. This should be good.

Nice work guys. Followed all, upvoted & resteemed.

@avarice, where do you climb in London?

I'm also a London indoor climber. Nice to meet you!

·

i love it when Steemians meet up in real life!

·
·

Yeah me too. The London Steemit meet up last year was great. I met some really lovely, cool and interesting people; many of whom have now become friends.

I had also planned to attend Steemfest at the end of last year to meet the wider family, but became very ill shortly beforehand, and have not fully recovered ever since, hence my absence.

However, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a not too distant happy resolution to my now way overdrawn period of life-bullshit, so that I can attend Steemfest 2, and also return to blogging again. I've missed this place.

Thanks for keeping up the great work @stellabelle

·
·
·

yes, i am planning to attend SteemFest 2 also. perhaps we shall meet?

·
·
·
·

That'd be great. I do hope so. Fingers crossed my current situation improves enough for a meet up and a laugh! :)

·
·
·
·
·

start posting on steemit hardcore.

I'm in guys :)

Here is another steemgig: https://steemit.com/steemgigs/@dreamrafa/steemgig-i-will-record-guitars-for-you

I think we should have a weekly post to link our gigs, hope you don't bother i use this one for now... cheers!

Thank you, @stellabelle, for this nice, clear roadmap. ;)
😄😇😄

@creatr

P.S. For others reading this, I have "mad skillz" in product development for small electronic/computer gadgets.

Thanks for advice!

Very helpful post. I will have to think of what services I could offer. hmmm...

beautifully explained... every newbie should follow these steps

Excellent post! Thanks for giving these type of guidance on wring a post!

Steemgig: I am lookinf for someone to love me long time. Whoops sorry wrong place. Sorry.

Great tips!

voted and resteemed. Great tool deserve more attention! Bring it on!

Awesome! Now I can read, socialise and earn at the same place.

·

welcome to your new world.

Nice clear instructions. Thankfully apart from advertising on Twitter I have most points covered 👍

·

well, if we are to overtake Fiverr, we will need everyone's help.

What is Steemgig, link to s thorough explanation? Is it like a freelancer?

·

I wouldn't say freelancer, but more like fiverr. Freelancer is for projects, and actual long term work, gigs are short term jobs that are done in a day or two. Example video edit, picture edit, article writing, short translation etc.

This really helped me a lot , your description is quite clear and very helpful wish you luck ;)

I'm late to this party @stelabelle, but I believe this is a primo initiative!! Thanks to all of you who are investing yourselves in this on our behalf. I'm excited to see where we take this inspiration.

I will keep it in mind. Greetings.

It's time for #steemgigs to surpass fiverr. If there is @surpassinggoogle , then there should be #surpassingfiverr to! Just an idea. :)

Yup just as everyone else here. .. thanks for this!

I've used fiverr in the past an have made $1,000 with them interesting to think how much they've made from me. I am sure there are ways to level things out but taking a whole dollar from every five was and is a complete hustle. Especially when I'd have upgrades or get tipped. .. reminded me of my days as an exotic dancer. .. everyone from the bouncers to the hosts had their hands out.

o.k. back to reality and off to posting my first #steemgig =D

Thank you @surpassinggoogle & @stellabelle, I'm so excited to do mine :)
I'm so happy and bringing here what my Team can do and what offer we can give to those who want to learn in freelancing.

I have just followed all the steps to my very first steemgig ;D

Btw I had never heard about fiverr. This post is 4 months old, how is the disrupting going so far?

Greetings!=)

Hello @stellabelle, I want to join. how do I require to join #steemgigs. thanks, iam in steemchat or tell me in email. podan.rj@gmail.com
·

all you do is write a post about either offering services or finding services. Use the tag 'steemgigs' and then you're in. That's all!

Thank you for posting this, I am on my last wits with Fiverr. I had a very successful gig offering music promotion for indie artists on my Spotify playlist, which was earning me $500-$1000 a month.

Once my gig was well over 150 5 x star ratings, Fiverr cancelled my gig. I understand it may have conflicted with their terms, but it was still very frustrating.

I do not think the platform on Steem is quite there, but I really hope this picks up in the near future.

Great info @stellabelle! How much of the credit for the price rise of Steem should go to steemgigs? I don't know the answer to that but it's not hurting!

To the moon with steemgigs!
