Yonipp is a fresh new addition to the world of freelance writing platforms. I have been working with them since they opened their virtual doors, and I immediately felt comfortable and unthreatened.
What do I mean by “unthreatened”? Well, there are a lot of platforms out there that do not really care much for the freelancer. They provide jobs, yes, but the freelancers have to fend for themselves in terms of finding out which employers or clients can be trusted. During times of conflict, these platforms will more likely take the side of the clients. On the other hand, Yonipp always reminds its registered freelancers to check employer reviews.
I have gotten to know how friendly and approachable the people behind Yonipp are. Just send them a message, and they will respond to you as soon as they are able – like the next working day. They even set up the site to make it easy for you to navigate. A bot will help you get around, but a real, live person is also easy to contact.
From what I have experienced so far, Yonnip makes sure that freelance writers are fairly compensated. There are several ways in which you can get your payment transferred to you. It is best, though, to inquire and be upfront at the very beginning. You will, however, get paid quickly if you have a working PayPal account. So, make sure your PayPal is functional.
The turnaround times are also reasonable. In fact, you can be as honest as possible with your bids by saying just how much time you need and for how much. Of course, you have to make sure that your rate and turnaround times are competitive and doable. After all, you get to be rated based on your performance, speed, and reliability. Yonipp has installed a virtual Huddle Box wherein you can discuss the project with your client. Yes, you may ask questions if there are some details you need to clarify. Make sure that you are available to respond to queries from your client, as well. The conversations are documented within the platform to keep both sides safe.
I am a writer who currently lives on the island of Dominica. It is an island that is usually not familiar to many of you, except when it got battered by Hurricane Maria. Many people even mistake my lovely home for the Dominican Republic, but here I am, a writer for Yonipp. The platform welcomes freelancers and clients from all over the world. You can place bids whenever you feel you have extra time. I am married, a mom, and a full-time teacher who is applying for a Ph.D. All of these responsibilities do not clash with Yonipp’s projects because I can choose my working hours.
Do I recommend Yonipp? Yes, I do, even though that means more competition for the projects. Just make sure that you are ready to post your best pitch every time. Yonipp is serious about giving both freelancers and employers a great medium for what they need, but freelancers should also be serious about the projects that they promise responsibility for.
Go to Yonipp to register. Due to COVID-19, I have been exploring freelance platforms and strengthening relationships with those I am already working with and/or for. It is always good to support your day job with extra income.
