Payyola - Reward Your Freelancer

My Big Idea

My BIG IDEA is Payyola

Payyola is a global online recognition platform through which individuals and organizations can reward their freelance workers & virtual assistants.

 We offer companies and websites such as Elance an opportunity to thank their freelancers in kind rather than in just words.

E.g. Music Downloads, EBooks, Spa Treatments, Frappuccino’s -And More!

“Thank You” is nice.
Vouchers are Better

A good freelancer & virtual assistant is hard to find, but when you find one, you’re always telling them “thank you.” Wouldn’t it be nicer to give something more than words?

My biz is: an online rewards scheme for freelancers around the world

It sells: an online rewards web application which anyone can use as their employee recognition program

To: Any company that uses freelancers

I do this because:

Because i want to help and support freelancers around the world & a good freelancer is hard to find!
