Let me tell you some more pertinent things about https://steemgigs.org, that you didn't know and simplify within this post, where SteemGigs is truly-headed.
We want to use this steemit post to work on your conviction about the beauty and potential growth of steem and steemit itself and reassure you that there are people who truly deeply love steem and what it represents unshakingly and are heartily working to grow it.
First off, the website is called SteemGigs as evidence of its role in enhancing and growing steem. Basically, we love steem.
Thus, take note, that we have had to take cognizance of the way steem is structured and its current and historical state, during the creation of the SteemGigs model.
We allowed SteemGigs to run fully on steemit.com over the course of many months under #steemgigs, building a community all along. During these times, we met our goal of reaching thousands of newly created steemit posts, incited by the tag.
Steem is built around content-creation among other things; thus, unlike regular freelance marketplaces, with https://steemgigs.org, we want to generate content ever-constantly.
We want to fill the search engines with steem's beauty incessantly. Thus, a core part of our model is; content-creation/re-creation, curation, content-discovery, community and engagement etc
Looking at this alone, you will instant notice that https://steemgigs.org is not the norm, when it comes to the freelance marketplace industry. "It is for everyone".
While SteemGigs quickly looks like a freelancing marketplace built around the steem blockchain protocol, it has an "un(dis)talented paradigm and a dynamic knowledge-bank containing specialized knowledge. I tell you, "this is revolutionary". Well, it will be obviouser over time.
Overall, SteemGigs is a Dream-Building community; one where "everyone" will eventually become a SteemGigger (Dream-builder); "a true celebrity.
How We Enhance Content Creation/Re-creation On Steem
Note: all posts published from https://steemgigs.org also appear on @steemit and @busy.org under tags.
Now, going back to steem and adding more paradigms to it; on the content-creation side, "on SteemGigs", we also want to incentivize "learning", using other things apart from rewards, influence and reputation.
Note: learning very much involves content creation/re-creation.
To do just this, our model must involve "everyone's contribution" and institute a curriculum that eventually makes "everyone" influential, indispensable; a household name; an icon; a legend; a SteemGigger, a dream-builder, a celebrity; because "these "everyone" now has something to offer".
Note: that when you become a household name, "a dream-builder", a true celebrity, a SteemGigger; even without things like SP etc, it puts you at place of responsibility and leadership as people seek your tutelage or service. This on its own, incites content-creation (new genres of general & specialized/niche-based knowledge based on experience, life, expertise etc or "the now desirable longing to adjust the world" by sharing your knowledge).
If you really climbed the ladder to get there; you will have rare knowledge to share.
Hence, we created a knowledge-bank on https://steemgigs.org/surpassing-google, that allows "deposits & withdrawal of knowledge", both specialized and general knowledge.
Visit https://steemgigs.org/categories/surpassinggoogle to see a catalog of such-like posts
The catalog of content deposited into this bank is "not waste". Our knowledge-bank stores these contributions and keeps it searchable for free!
Being primarily niche-based, users of SteemGigs, aspiring SteemGiggers etc can learn, expand knowledge, hone their skills and become eventual SteemGiggers; "competent enough to offer gigs in exchange for steem, SBD, SP etc
This segment now also creates additional incentive for even "everyone" (non-experts) or users of https://steemgigs.org etc to create fresh/exclusive/rare content
- One may decide to learn new things solely for the sake of contributing knowledge to our bank e.g "he may consciously decide to read module 20 of Adobe Photoshop", inorder to contribute this new-found knowledge (using his own words and perspective) to our bank, under the category "graphics & designs".
- One may a learn new niche-based topic e.g "coding in @macrohard", solely for the sake of expanding in his knowledge but may now see further incentive to create content with his new-found knowledge, to store it in our knowledge-bank for the benefit of "everyone".
- One may be short of posting ideas and decide to visit https://steemgig.org/surpassing-google to chose one of the editors; a closely-related category and sub-category e.g Fun & Lifestyles > Relationship advice; research or study on the topic and decide to contribute this fresh content on SteemGigs, for the sake of everyone.
- One may end up learning on a particular day, that "there is a new kind of guitar with 16th strings and it takes only a man with 6 fingers to play it" and see the need to visit the TIL (today i learned) editor on https://steemgigs.org/surpassing-google; choose the category Music & Audio, to contribute this new-found knowledge, for the sake of everyone.
Bottomline; what do you think is a bigger incentive for creating valuable content, than rewards?
"Everyone" (for the sake of everyone)
So why not visit https://steemgigs.org/surpassing-google now and contribute a post?
And what's our bus-stop on SteemGigs?
To make "everyone" an eventual SteemGigger (Dream-builder); who can now put expert knowledge to testimonial good use in building the dreams of others, by offering it even as a service in exchange for steem, SBD, SP or even for free; "a true celebrity".
Simple logic: If "everyone" is SteemGigger (Dream-builder), then which noble dream can't we build?
Thus, on the knowledge-side of SteemGigs, we want to house and dispense the very best, fresh, rare, specialized and general knowledge, from the very best, reputable great minds and experts, out for free.
Our knowledge bank is called "SurpassingGoogle" because not only will we re-shape google with the countless new-breed content that we will create; we re-shape the very internet by means of steemit and our beauty, knowledge, specialized knowledge, experience, voice, talents etc. But there is more;
We will surpassing Google for real, by making every and each one; "a celebrity", solely on the fact that they are the awesomest version of "human" (SteemGigger).
To accomplish this thus, we have to mine the "human" in additional new ways as there are many other facets to human apart from the mind.
As for the mind, we will take the "mind-mining paradigm" of steem to new dimensions, by integrating more of the "real world" (life) into the daily curriculum, for participants of https://steemgigs.org
From this screenshot, you will notice some of the various life-related categories, that we have on https://steemgigs.org/categories/surpassinggoogle:
We are not just seeking to create talents, for there are talents everywhere.
We are seeking to create "proven talents"; the best version of human; talents with character and substance; two still "very rare qualities".
These things are easy. Let me explain....
We now have blockchain; "the steem blockchain". We will simply use SteemGigs to maximize the full beauty of the steem blockchain.
The blockchain has one special pro; "It is an open ledger, with a knowledge-base open to everyone" but being bare, though initiates transparency, doesn't instantly eliminate virtues like "respect" and "regard for privacy" etc.
By means of https://steemgigs.org, we want to create an ever-ongoing curriculum that "mines the human into its awesomest version", so much so that people can "build dreams and create nobles acts" not because they conscious of the steem blockchain or incentivized to do these things but because they have truly evolved in their substance over time and now love and regard humanity (the brother next to you) and love it for real; thus, want to do something for it; for "everyone".
So, while https://steemgigs.org can instantly look like a "freelance marketplace built around the steem protocol", it will underlyingly be adjusting the world and creating more beauty in it.
Yes, how many impossibilities will become possibilities, with "everyone" a SteemGigger (Dream-builder)
If you didn't already know, i am trying to use this steemit post to highlight that "https://steemgigs.org has a paradigm/curriculum designed to very much compliment steem".
Apart from looking to enhance the reputation paradigm of steem and mine other virtues of human; we added an un(dis)talented paradigm, removing all barriers to entry and keeping the use of https://steemgigs.org ever-green.
Enhancing Steem Curation Using https://steemgigs.org
If you aren't yet an expert and don't know what to offer in terms of a service on behalf of others, you can contribute knowledge for free and even get curated for doing so. Well, you can also get curated for gig-related posts, whether the gig-post itself, custom-requests or SteemGigs testimonials.
Remember, that another aspect of steem that we would love to enhance is "curation". All posts from any of the SteemGigs will eventually be structured to follow a format by means of specialized editors. Posts will usually have minimum character count and some other parameters, that will have to be met before these posts publish successfully.
Also on steem, these posts will fall automatically into the right tags, have a structured and recognizable headline and will have some indicator at their footers, showing that it was created using https://steemgigs.org, giving curators on steemit and the curators we will work with, ease in discovering and rewarding these content.
Enhancing Content Discovery Using SteemGigs
We already have a partially working search engine. In the meantime, all posts on SteemGigs are categorized properly in accordance with the type of editor used and categories chosen. In the future, we will have manual moderators too but especially for the "CREATE A GIG" segment.
Basically, to find content on SteemGigs to curate, engage and learn from, is as easy as choosing a closely-related category and exploring the catalog of posts that displays.
On Steemit though, you will be able to identify SteemGigs posts, especially by looking at the bottom of the post to see this:

Enhancing Engagement Using SteemGigs
If you are not an expert and our eventual goal is for "everyone" to become SteemGigger (Dream-builder), it is now way more possible to become a SteemGigger for free.
As we keep on gathering specialized knowledge in our bank, through contributions from experts and ofcourse from everyone who decides to learn a new niche-topic for the sake of contributing to our bank, we will soon have a searchable database of the world best specialized knowledge specific to the "art of dream-building". This knowledge will be fresh, exclusive and dynamic.
Everyone will be able to visit our knowledge-bank HERE and engage, learn and ask questions. In the long run, there will also be internet messaging and notifications to further spur engagement.
