Before the industrial revolution, everyone in the world was a gig worker. And long before we thought of a platform for the gig economy, basically, everyone was a business owner. An entrepreneur.
Think about it. Before the modern era of 9-5 jobs, large corporations, and Department of Labor policies, everyone had a trade. Growing their own food. Building their own homes. Therefore becoming really good blacksmiths or weavers or hunters or craftspeople.
As they honed their skills, they found customers to buy their products or service and that’s how human beings made a living for centuries.
Enter the common era. Now the norm is a professional workforce with hours from 9 am to 5 pm, health benefits, and PTO. It feels stable, safe, and comfortable.
This is not a critique of this new reality. Some of the world’s greatest advancements have come because of this change. Even though there is so much focus on large corporations and office jobs, the solopreneur, the small business owner, continues to silently drive economies.
As a matter of fact, if these service providers disappeared today, our society would grind to a halt.
To this day, in the United States alone, 59 million Americans are gig workers, providing products and services in a global gig economy that totals $455 billion annually and growing. And when a crisis hits, like a pandemic or a recession, many people realize just how unstable the stable office environment is.
But with each downturn, more and more people realize they need to find other ways to sustain themselves.
Hence, they find a side gig. They hustle to provide for their family. They go back to doing what human beings have done for centuries. By 2023, there is projected to be close to 100 million people who have a side gig.
We are revolutionizing the way clients and service providers/gig workers/entrepreneurs connect online. MySyde, a platform for the gig economy is making it interactive, reliable, and trustworthy to connect locally and develop a digital “word of mouth” strategy.
This is no easy feat in a loud and busy online and offline world.
We want to help every service provider successfully create the lifestyle they want and desire for themselves and more importantly, their families. And we know technology is the way to bring us all together.
We also believe that everyone should easily and simply find the goods and services they desire from these service providers. Again, no easy feat in the loud and unreliable world of advertising.
MySyde provides a one-stop app for service providers to bring to market their products and services to their local community while providing a simple interface for people who need their services to find it without all the noise that comes from other platforms.
MySyde, a platform for the gig economy, allows service providers to add images, descriptions, location, stories, reels, and pricing of their services, all in an easy-to-use interface that operates much like a social media app. In turn, consumers can search, view, connect with, and direct message these service providers to receive their products and services.
Consumers will then have the ability to endorse and recommend service providers based on the quality of services provided.
This is the time. The world needs MySyde.
