Tweaky is an interesting new service that offers to “tweak” your website for $25 per tweak. While we’d probably advocate learning to do some tweaking yourself, for instance, changing text, images, or updating a header it’s an interesting concept for those things that are just a little bit harder. For instance, setting up Paypal checkout or adding a floating newsletter subscription bar.
It’s always seemed like the difficulties of finding a reputable freelancer to adjust things on your startup’s website made it more hassle than it’s worth. How do you find someone? How do you know if they are any good? How do you know if there pricing is accurate? Even using services like Freelancer.com don’t solve all of those problems. So here you get someone to do a small job at a set price within the structures of a bigger organization. Cool concept! Their flat pricing model also evens things out, though as we mentioned initially it’s probably going to be cheaper to learn how to do those super short and simple tasks yourself.
We particularly like
the ability to get short tasks done without having the hassle of finding and vetting a freelancer.
We don’t particularly like
the $25 charge for really small tasks.
