Community Gig Officially Launches, Celebrates with Free Summer Postings
***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***
June 2009-Community Gig, a premier online classified posting destination, is pleased to announce their official launch into the internet marketplace. In celebration of Community Gig’s commencement, free gig posting for the entire summer is being extended to new users.
Community Gig provides communities throughout the United States with the ability to connect with local professionals who can assist, help and complete various short-term jobs, or Gigs, as they are affectionately called on Community Gig. The idea of people helping people is behind Community Gig’s inception, allowing users to post their needs, ranging from automotive and domestic to writing and construction, as well as browse through a plethora of potential job opportunities.
Community Gig sets itself apart from their classified site competition by allowing users to use a reverse auction technique, bidding for business on posted gigs and then providing feedback on service, quality and turnaround time for other potential clients to see. This process improves worker confidence and promotes community building, resulting in increased opportunities for all.
Upon initial Community Gig sign-up each user receives five free gig postings, subsequent posts cost $.50 each. Users are able to purchase posting credits in bulk to allow quick, frequent and uninterrupted posting. Membership options are also available from Community Gig to provide enhanced service, increased visibility and reduced posting prices. By becoming a Certified Member a user is able to submit licenses and certifications to be reviewed by buyers and potential clients. A Featured Member gives users added recognition by having their information linked to related Gigs. Certified Membership is free with Featured Membership only costing $6 a month.
Community Gig was founded by Christian Kleven of Vertical Presence Incorporated. Boasting over 12 years in the technology business, Christian created VPI in 2007 and recently launched verticalpresence.com, a site dedicated to the celebration of talent of all kinds. The inspiration to create communitygig.com stemmed from Kleven’s belief in the power of local communities, regardless of whether or not they are internet-based, to transform America’s economic situation.
“Buying local can be accomplished online. Community Gig expedites the process of finding a great mechanic, green thumb, cleaning crew or writer that fulfills your needs. Support your community’s economy by becoming a Community Gig member,” states CEO and Co-Founder, Christian Kleven.
