Freelancers are going 'Donanza'

Freelancing can be a lucrative career, if you know what you’re getting into. Advantages to freelancing include the freedom to choose your work schedule and the projects you agree to, how much time you invest in each of the jobs you take on, the freedom to work anywhere you deem conducive – at home, at a coffee shop, even out of town. You may also start working straight out of bed, if you so please, with your pajamas on.

That said, however, don’t let the good stuff lull you into believing freelancing is all milk and honey or where the grass is always green. Freelancing comes with disadvantages, too – the most common of which is failing to land regular, if not long-term, gigs to keep your money vessel replenished.

There are sites like oDesk and Elance that connect clients and freelancers. And then, there’s DoNanza.com, a freelancing search engine that allows anybody to find available freelance jobs that match his expertise or field of interest. Being a search engine, DoNanza pores through as many cracks in the Internet to get the most comprehensive set of results. It doesn’t, in any way, compete with Elance, oDesk or other freelancing platforms. Instead, DoNanza “completes” them as it ultimately directs traffic back to these platforms.

Aside from its basic listing services, DoNanza also offers 1Click Advertising, a feature  that allows freelancers private job requests – meaning, no competition, minimal effort, more job prospects and more chances of landing a job – for a fee.

As well, DoNanza integrates several freelancing apps like Conduit Mobile, which makes your DoNanza site mobile-friendly; Fanzila, a Facebook fan page app that helps you create a powerful social media presence; KashFlow, an app that automates credit control, billing and payment reminders; Paymo, which provides project management, invoicing and time-tracking tools; Base CRM, which easily manages your contacts, sales and customers; and a whole lot more.

If you’re a publisher, DoNanza’s Publisher Program allows you to integrate either the DoNanza widget or project board into your site. Publishers are compensated when a reader posts a job via the widget or a freelancer starts a job that he/she found on the publisher site.

If properly utilized, DoNanza can be your springboard to a successful freelancing career.
