Crowdfunding Spawns New Service Industry

Crowdfunding as a concept has spawned crowdfunding as an industry of service providers.

Aside from legal, Upwork shows 12 categories of crowdfunding freelance jobs that include:

  • web/software developer,
  • IT/networking,
  • data/analytics,
  • marketing,
  • writing,
  • customer service, and
  • accounting/consulting.

You won’t get rich as budgets are typically tight, and many jobs are part-time and remote.

Payments go through Upwork and if you’re paying by the hour the site has a “Work Diary tool [that] captures snapshots of your freelancer’s screen every 10 minutes” so you can see if you’re getting ripped off.
