Are you looking to earn some extra money in your free time using a skill you are already good at?
What if you are a University student with a few hours a week you could put aside to teach a secondary school student math?
Or maybe you are a fitness enthusiast who has successfully trimmed your body from fat to fit. Could you put aside a few hours a week to offer personal fitness training to people who want to achieve the same results as you?
Or perhaps you are a mother who used to work full-time as an accountant until you had your first baby and decided to stay at home to take care of her? Could you offer your accounting services on a freelance basis during your downtime?
Whether you are a tutor, fitness coach, accountant, photographer, yoga teacher or babysitter, having a constant stream of clients waiting to pay for your services is a dream come true.
But in Malaysia, the process of finding clients can be tough. Most of the time, you get your clients through cold outreach or referrals from friends or past clients.
What if you could make this process a lot easier?
The good news is, now you can: A new platform for connecting clients and non-IT freelancers have just been launched. All you have to do is to list your services on the platform and clients will be able to look for you. And it’s free to sign up!
What is the platform and how does it work?
Let’s take a look:
GoChampion.my: The Easy Way to Sell Freelance Services Online in Malaysia
GoChampion.my is a platform that connects freelancers with clients through a search engine:
It works like this:
- You list your services, what exactly you will do, how much you charge, your availability and your location
- Clients search for your services on GoChampion
- If you are what they are looking for, they can engage your service and pay you for it
- You get the payment and deliver the service
GoChampion will charge you a 20% fee for payments, but only when your client pays you. So if you have not secured a client yet, it is always free to list your services on GoChampion.
Sounds simple? Let’s find out more:
Who Can Sign Up for GoChampion?
GoChampion was designed with the purpose of connecting people with skills and free time with clients who are looking for the same services.
Although many freelance or service marketplace websites in Malaysia were designed with the IT-savvy professional in mind, GoChampion is the marketplace for non-IT people.
That means that whether you are a cleaner, plumber, electrician, painter, gardener, maintenance worker, rider, yoga teacher, personal trainer, caterer, babysitter, personal drive, language teacher or tutor, you can list your services on GoChampion.
Why You Should Sign Up: Benefits of Using GoChampion.my
The biggest benefit of using GoChampion is that you can add an additional channel for marketing your services and make extra money in your free time.
You don’t have to look for clients, rather clients who really need service will look and hire you directly through platform if you are what they are looking for.
But other than that, GoChampion.my also offers these additional benefits:
Split Payment System
As mentioned earlier, GoChampion charges a 20% fee whenever a client engages you for your services.
But instead of holding the client’s payment first and then imbursing you the payment later, GoChampion practises split payments using PayPal. This means whenever a client makes payment to you, you will get paid directly and GoChampion.my will get its 20% fee directly. Below is an example of how the split happens:
GoChampion.my also displays information about your location so you never have to waste time with clients who are not within your reach.
Instead, clients looking for your service will already know where you are and will only engage you if your location fits where they are.
Opportunity to Start your Freelance Business at Zero Cost
Since GoChampion is always free to list, you can start building your freelance business without having to invest any money. More than that, GoChampion has built in tools to assist you in your business that other platforms do not have. One of the most powerful ones include a chat platform where you can get to know your potential clients’ needs and even negotiate the prices for your services before getting started on the job.
The only time you pay for anything is when you get paid. GoChampion only charges you when your client pays you.
You never have to chase a client for the payment
Since the client will be paying you for your services directly, you will never need to worry about clients not paying you for your services. Instead, you will get the peace of mind of having the money in your PayPal account for withdrawal at any time.
