The indie maker economy is on the rise.
As indie projects become more and more successful, this economy will create job opportunities specifically geared towards people with an indie maker mindset.
It's time to create a dedicated indie gigs platform.
The Jobs group on Indie Hackers is booming. This economy is already creating job opportunities, but we are missing a dedicated place to match supply and demand.
Build an indie maker gigs board with vetted indie projects and indie makers.
Yes, there are job boards (unicornfactory.nz) and talent matching services (toptal.com) charging money from at least one side of the marketplace.
There are a few monetization models that could work here:
I don't know which monetization would work best. Each approach has its pros and cons. You have to think about how you'll get supply and demand on the site in the first days. People won't pay if you have no gigs and no people looking for gigs.
Utilize existing channels for looking for gig opportunities. Besides the Jobs group in IH, go look for gig forums in the nocode, design, and writers community.
I think the indie makers economy is going to keep growing and will need people to support it. If you can work out the supply/demand mechanics and figure out a monetization model that will work for everyone, you might be onto something!
