Widgets {A Giveaway} ~ Austin, TX

Do you need to get odd jobs done around the house but just don't have the skill set to finish them?

Do you need to create a powerpoint presentation but don't know where to even begin?

Do you need to get your iPhone screen repaired?

Do you need to build your videography portfolio?

Do you need to find some extra cash? (ok, who doesn't?)

There is an incredible social network that started here in Austin that can help.  Needto is a social helping platform that connects people who are looking for work with those that need them.  It is a brilliant way to find someone to paint the outside of your house, repair a broken door, take pictures at your child's birthday party, or help file your taxes.  And in turn, it is a unique way to find work.

The website is simple - type in what you need to have done in the box on the home page and Needto will provide you with a list of eligible candidates, complete with verifications, ratings, and reviews. You can offer a price and work directly with the employee, paying them when the job is completed. Posting a need is free.

If you are looking to find some new clients, build your portfolio, or just pick up some extra work, Needto can help market you.  Think of it as a Temp Agency, with out all hoops to jump through.

"Our vision is to put people to work, one at a time, in the local economy.  And to give Austinites one place they can go where they can get everything they need done." says founder Wade Floyd.  "We allow all people, individuals or businesses, the opportunity to fulfill needs."

But the best part about Needto?  They donates 10 percent of net revenue to job-training programs and partners with local non-profits in Austin as part of its commitment to putting America to work.

Take a look at how it works:

So the next time you are looking to hire a tutor for your child, look to Needto and hire that college student.  Easy peasy. 

And I am very excited to be working with Needto in offering my readers a $50 credit towards the next job they need to find someone to help them with.
