This is a very simple app, with one screen and a weekly notification. That’s it. It won't be something you'll have to fiddle with every few minutes. You just set it up and update your availability once a week. Most of the action takes place in the companion app that companies will use to find you called Get Help Winning.
We have two apps. Gig Pipeline is for consultants and Get Help Winning for companies that use them. Companies will use Get Proposal Help to search for consultants who use Gig Pipeline to set their availability, and get in touch with them directly.
Companies that want assistance can go through our help desk, but won't have to. If someone contacts you directly through the app, we won't even know it. When you work directly with your customers, we do not charge you, we do not charge them, and we do not take a percentage.
With the companion Get Help Winning app, customers can look up your schedule and work around your other gigs. The materials we publish are seen by over 100,000 professionals every week. Being in the app gets you in front of our audience. You can fill your calendar and maximize your billability.
At launch we’re providing support for consultants who help companies win business, including marketing, sales, business development, capture, and proposal consultants. We’re focusing on the US Government contracting market, because that’s what we know best. The platform we’re building has far, far more potential applicability. But we want to fine tune it before taking on the world.
Good things can come from simple beginnings.
Here's what you can expect as we launch this new app:
We'll give consultants a week or two to download and set up the app so you'll be in there when we invite potential customers to download the Get Winning Help app. Being in Gig Pipeline early has advantages, but don't expect a ton of business right away. Potential customers have to download Get Help Winning, learn how to use it, and have a proposal they need consultant help on. That may take time. The more companies that download Get Help Winning, the faster that will happen. You can help us get the word out since the more companies that use the search app, the more exposure you will get.
