High-quality performance of paid work

What do you like best?

Guru allows you to find a performer for your work. I have not once used the services of freelancers on this site. I'm comfortable working there and with the help of feedback, I can find the best performer who will do everything qualitatively and quickly.

What do you dislike?

My work has been done repeatedly qualitatively by the Guru so I have no reason to complain.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In my work, I often used other sites with a search for freelancers and nothing is comparable to what people can do in Guru. if you want your order to be done quickly and efficiently, you should try it out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you can't do the work yourself, you can find a freelancer who will do it for you. Guru helped me find a designer who made a quality logo for my site. Also, with their services, sales on my website were improved and advertising became more effective for attracting customers.

More fun with Guru

What do you like best?

I am very grateful to the Guru.com for helping me find a remote project work when I really needed it. Also Guru allows me to post jobs that I hire for. It is very convenient to see feedbacks about the performer and his proven skills

What do you dislike?

I'm not complaining about that software ever. I don't have anything bad to say because this service is wonderful. More good thing it's just to start work with and then you will get all points.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The hiring operation on Guru is easy, and every freelancer I have worked with was highly professional. I sure I were more than lucky. I recommend Guru.com to choose as main freelance service.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The more important that at work I feel much safe and secure when meeting new clients on Guru. I've also been able to improve my skills working with different projects.

Just another freelance service, but overall good

What do you like best?

I've been working with this service for about a month. Quite quickly understood the functions and all processes. it seems to be all right. The advantages include a good thoughtfulness of the service in various small things. Also on my topic there is a lot of new jobs every day and it pleases.

What do you dislike?

Competition. Competition is very cruel and a beginner like me should really try to get you selected. For this you have to spend a lot more time than expected.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to write about yourself as more as possible in bid. And good luck!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With the help of this service I'm looking for a part time job and project basis work. I already have several orders on which I work. I hope all be fine.

Bad Experiences All the way Around

What do you like best?

A lot of freelancers available and they did have great customer support.Problem is you can't vet freelancers very well or prove who they are. We did our best to vet them but we still had poor outcomes with everyone except one. I do not give them a good grade, not even the A this forum is giving. Guru's are not reliable despite high ratings or earnings - doing research still doesn't guarantee a good job. And other Guru's did half the job or disappeared altogether. Thought we had a great one, but he vanished mid-job. I'm not going to recommend them at all. They need to offer some sort of avenue for employers to recoup losses other than paying more money for arbitration. Ridiculous. And if they rule in your favor, still no guarantee you'll be reimbursed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Need to vet freelancers better and have the option to edit feedback. Have better options for Customers who employ. Stop charging for every little thing. 2-3% for paying someone, then if you withdraw your money another charge, if someone refunds you, another charge. Give me a break. Positive note, no monthly fees..

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

None, it only created more problems and more cost. We moved over to UpWork.

Mainly, a freelancer site for IT guys in specific task

What do you like best?

At Guru.com you deal with the professional service providers (obviously there are irresponsible/liar guys, but that happen everywhere!).

Guru allows working with professional employers and employees. Costs are not cheap, but it worth for the quality of the service. The majority of the work are focus to IT, Web and Software development/support.

As employer, you can post a particular task in your project, and probably get an expert guy only on this field.

As employee, you can get a perfect match with your skills in a particular project getting a good payment.

What do you dislike?

There is no diversity on jobs: employers find an expert on a topic, then sometimes can be difficult be the "winner" of a job due that could be another guy with more credential than you, in an expertise field.

The response time is longer than other cheaper options such as Freelancer.com.

Also, the number of jobs for for Design, Art & Multimedia, Sales & Marketing, Writing & Translation, Engineering & Architecture, Admin Support, Management & Finance and Legal are less than any IT-related.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are in IT/Web/Software world, and you work as freelancer, you need to open an account on this webpage. Probably, you found a proper job for your skills.

If you work in a middle/small size company, maybe a little help do not be bad to solve your "operational" issues :-)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As employer:

A perfect fit for a specific job in Software development.

As employee:

A good payment for your day-to-day labor as developer.

Best freelancer platform

What do you like best?

This is my favorite and long-time used freelancer platform for digital marketing and SEO projects.

What do you dislike?

There is some disparity in the payment process that causes some arrangements to go south where no other problems exist.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to incorporate as much information about the different services that you offer. It works very well to setup your portfolio questions with commonly asked questions so you can apply to many jobs quickly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been able to build a large book of business through this platform and would recommend it to any freelancer, new or old.
