Apparently it's traditional to say that around this time of year. And you know whenever you hear it, it's always to wish you well for the new year ahead. Which is exactly what I wish for everyone on SEOClerks in 2017 and beyond!
You know, it's been some kind of year hasn't it? For SEOClerks and the whole Ionicware Clerks nation of sites. And for the freelancing industry on a whole too!
A recap and highlight of 2016's most memorable moments!
2016 has been an interesting, productive and innovative year to say the least! We've seen some radical and innovative changes and great new features being added to both SEOClerks and all Ionicware sites. Some small, some large, all amazing!
We've seen quite a lot of things happening and new things coming about. From the old forum being merged into the Community Discussions. To features for all of the Ionicware sites. New features all round, to benefit all users. And we've seen through the Community Discussions here how they and along with the site has helped people to find success in their SEOClerks / Freelancing career.
One of the largest things to happen in 2016 was the user base merge. Where as before you had to rank and level up on each Ionicware site, now, all the sites are using the same level status as SEOClerks. So if you was a Level 3 SEOClerks user/buyer/seller but only a Level 1 ListingDock/PixelClerks/WordClerks user, your level status carries over into all Ionicware sites the same so you'll be Level 3 everywhere if that's your level now.
This is a great thing for sellers here and buyers alike who can benefit from their freelance services. With no need to meet certain requirements to level up on each site, sellers can take advantage of all their current SEOClerks user level offers across all sites which means you can sell more and earn more quicker and that in turn means more variety for buyers to choose from as well! Win win all round!
And of course, we've seen several new security features being added to make peoples accounts on all the Ionicware sites more secure as well. From secondary passwords to security questions. From telephone and address verification to identity verification to device management. Just little things that can give you a little more peace of mind.
And we've seen that the SEO industry is still going from strength to strength and looks set to be even bigger in 2017 and beyond that with up to 1/3rd of the US workforce becoming freelancers, could that percentage by 1/2 by the end of 2017?
And that's just for the US! As more people get online and take to freelancing in other countries, as well as more people getting online and needing a freelance service. We can expect a growth in the SEO and freelance industry on a whole.
That is something I for one and proud to be a part of that and look forward to seeing come about into fruition!
So keep promoting SEOClerks you affiliates! Keep selling your services freelancers! And keep needing freelance services you freelance buyers! May your 2017 be bigger and better and more enriched and fulfiling than 2016 was!
