UPDATE: It appears SuperTasker was acquired by PeoplePerHour. Please see their listing here or consider one of these alternatives or see below. If you own this company or this information is incorrect, contact me here.
SuperTasker was created by the founder and CEO of PeoplePerHour and provides a platform for customers to hire curated experts to complete high-quality digital tasks in just one click.
There is an emphasis on keeping the process of outsourcing tasks quick and simple with Supertasker. Submitted tasks are picked up by a freelancer on a “first come first serve” basis and turned around very quickly.
SuperTasker and parent company PeoplePerHour were founded by current CEO Xenios Thrasyvoulou. While PeoplePerHour dates back to 2008, SuperTasker was launched in August, 2014.
The main difference between these two platforms is that SuperTasker is a much faster way to get your tasks completed. There is no bidding from freelancers and developing relationships, instead your task gets assigned to a freelancer that has been screened by the Supertasker team and picked up on a “first come first serve” basis.
Prices for different tasks are fixed, this makes pricing up your workload a lot easier and helps to standardize the process.
You can request up to 5 revisions for each task, and if you’re still not happy you can resubmit the task to be picked up by a different freelancer so you have a decent level of protection.
Although as a customer you have no say in the selection process when your task is assigned, there is a reputation system in place based on feedback from customers. SuperTasker manage their freelancers and review their ratings to ensure the highest quality work is being carried out on their side.
SuperTasker cover almost any form of digital task you can think of. There isn’t a client/virtual assistant relationship, so you can’t work on large projects back and forth with communication, but you can break down your project into smaller tasks and submit them.
Some of the most popular tasks they handle include:
- Photo retouching
- File conversion
- WordPress Fixes
- WordPress migration
- Logo creation
- Presentation formatting
If you have any digital task, from HTML to help with Facebook posts, you’ll find a freelancer picking you task on the Supertasker platform.
Plans and Pricing
Each type of task has a set price and turnaround time. Some of the more popular tasks are:
- File Conversion – $5 per file, in 1 hour
- 3 logo variations – $45 in 2 hours
- 3 banners in standard format – $45 in 24 hours
- Infographics – $150 in 24 hours
- WordPress migration – $49
- Magento Fixes – $49
Having the set price model instead of buying hours has the advantage of giving you a clear picture of how much your tasks are going to cost.
Some people may prefer the consistency of working with the same virtual assistant and developing a working relationship, but for one-off tasks Supertasker are reasonably priced and their turnaround times are impressive.
Another service that allows you to outsource tasks on a job-by-job basis with an emphasis on speed is Speedlancer, which promises a 4-hour turnaround time for marketing related tasks.
Fiverr runs a similar model where you can order tasks à la carte, but turnaround times vary by seller.
