Case of Success in Twago

We have contacted Adrian Rodriguez, VIP user at Twago, to tell us what is the secret of his success on the platform. In this interview you will discover the key to find customers quickly and safe. I hope you disfuteís with her and we will be happy to receive your comments.

1. Are you a freelancer or a company?

I am a freelancer expert in programming services development and design.

I have knowledge in most programming languages but some more thoroughly than others. I started at the age of 13 with basic HTML classes and from there I discovered that it was really what I liked.

Until recently I did not decide to take the big leap to become self-employed, I was always afraid of not finding enough projects and that people do not appreciate my work but thanks to Twago I’m getting to make my way in the world of Internet at very good speed.

2. How did you know Twago and why did you decide to use it?

I really do not remember how I met Twago, would be in one of those times when you are looking at the search engines projects for freelancers and I appeared. My first impression was the one we have all, a company that offers free work but that in return will take a part, so I do not have a good impression.

Then I decided to investigate in forums and the web itself and little by little I saw that it was a new company that provided many tools to find programming projects among others.

3. Why do you think your offers convince customers?

There really is no common factor to like all customers. There are many types of customers and not everyone likes the same but, in what I usually focus, is in sincerity in reference to deadlines and budgets.
Lately they have contacted me many customers, thought that all freelancers are going to find the money fast and scam them. I show them that this is not the case delivering quality results.

4. Before being a VIP user, what type of subscription did you use?

I started like the vast majority of users, registering with the free subscription and waiting for me to be chosen in a project to be able to invest in a paid subscription. Finally the day came when I was chosen for a GREAT project and I took the opportunity to invest in a freelance subscription. At that time I noticed a big change in terms of commissions and visibility, so I got more projects. With so many projects in sight I decided to try the VIP subscription to avoid the twago service rate. Now with the VIP account I do not pay any commission per project and clients can contact me without going through twago.

5. Why did you decide to become a VIP user? Do you think it’s profitable?

I decided to buy a VIP subscription because I started to have a lot of projects and the commissions I had to pay, as it was large projects, they were high. It really is very profitable and it recovers fast.

6. What is for you the main benefit of carrying out the projects within the platform?

Customers when they hang a project on the platform and know what they are going, what they will have to do and what they want therefore saves you some problems that may arise with customers you know outside the platform as for example to tell you : I didn’t know, I was thinking that… That is something that I have noticed a lot and is appreciated.

7. Have you done projects for international clients?

Yes, I’ve done some projects for Argentina, India and USA. It is a shame that they have not been reflected as references in Twago because having a VIP subscription have been contacted directly with me without having to go through the platform.

8. What do you think of the SafePay service offered by Twago? Have you used it?

I have not used much safePay that usually are close clients and are made bank transfers, but I have had some project in which I have used. It gives Me confidence to know that you have the money of the project safe and that you will receive it. The little inconvenience I have found is that like many others, some work with 30-50% advancement and SafePay you can not offer, but hey you know that once given the final OK of the client, you will receive everything.

9. What advice would you give to other collaborators to get projects through Twago?

I would tell them not to go for the fast money, to be aware of what the customer really needs and to make an assessment based on that. Not to have a budget of €3000 you have to get €2999, your job may only be worth €1000 and then constantly asking for more projects.

Audiovisual Content Still Premium on Media, The Experts Assure

The quality of the content will remain the key to the future of the audiovisual sector beyond the new forms of distribution, according to experts gathered today in the last day of the annual conference of the National Association of television Programme Executives ( NATPE) in Miami (USA).

“The content is what makes this conference and this sector grow. Whether with traditional television or digitally, the important thing is the content “said JP Bommel, president of NATPE.

With the will to “be a step ahead of what happens in the industry “, the digital sector has been one of the axes of the 55 edition of NATPE, where companies OTT (free transmission over the Internet) have cohabited with the traditional teleoperator, that , in the judgment of JP Bommel, “They are here to stay “.

“You’re not going home to see technology, but to see stories. People want more products and more programs, but above all they are good “he highlighted.

In the same line, Klaudia Bermudez-Key, general manager of NBCUniversal International networks Latam., insisted that “No matter what platform, what people are looking for is content quality “.

Thus, in this edition of Natpe, which has brought together in Miami the leaders of the television industry and to buyers and sellers of audiovisual contents from all over the world, the work of the executives and experts of the sector consisted in the search for “New formats of Entertainment “.

Much of them focuses on young audiences, on which the consultancy FTI noted that increasingly opt for the consumption of video through mobile phones.

A clear example of this is Brazil, where this consumption has tripled since 2012, while reducing the use of television from 40% to 28%.

Despite these changes in the platforms, the industry maintains the good time and Natpe managed to capture 150 new international buyers, a “significant growth from Europe “, which seeks to open to American markets.

As an example, the person in charge highlighted the great Spanish representation at the fair, as well as the opportunity for the Latin market to have all the co-productions that have been signed during the fair.

Also, during NATPE 2018 numerous channels and television projects have been presented with the United States and Latin America as clients, as is the case of “Atrescine “, of the Spanish corporation Atresmedia, or “Kanal D Drama “, a new payment channel with Turkish productions in Spanish, which will be available in both areas.

“Turkey’s content is fascinating. It has reached many agreements with Turkish companies this week “, explained JP Bommel in reference to the growing success in Latin America of soap operas of that country.

The Latin division of the cable TV channel HBO took advantage of NATPE to announce an international distribution operation that includes its most recognized series in the region, such as “Mr. Avila “, “The Bronze Garden ” or “magnificent 70 “.

Precisely the president of distribution of HBO Latin America, Francisco Smith, was one of the participants today in a conference on cable television in Latin America, as well as the audiovisual consumption of the public of the Generation Milénica.

Smith emphasized the improvement over five years ago in the development of new technologies in Latin America, although he said that the economic situation in some countries does not allow to expand the consumption of video through digital platforms.

The president of A Networks Latin America, Eduardo Ruiz, coincided with Smith, noting that the different situations in the countries of the region make him think that the consumption of video will be kept on television, with 82% of the current consumption through this medium.

“Pay television is growing in Latin America, even with the intrusion of platforms like Netflix. Although it is very different from one country to another “said Ruiz, who assured that future elections in Brazil, Colombia and Mexico can have an” impact “in this situation, if new regulations are approved.

In addition, the Director general of NBCUniversal International networks Latam. He highlighted the need for more investment in Latin America, since “They are far from those in the United States,” although it coincided in defining the Latin audiovisual scenario as “positive “.
