Review on Gobann.com: Indonesian Micro Job Website for Indonesian Freelancers

This article is a review on gobann.com, an Indonesian micro job website. one of the biggest Indonesian freelancers market place

Micro job website is a popular phenomenon on internet nowadays. You can easily find this kind of website on Google. Gobann.com is one of micro job websites among many similar sites. Its uniqueness is its Indonesian based website

As I mentioned earlier, gobann.com is an Indonesian based micro job websites we on internet. Since their basic language and market target is Indonesian so everything in this site are very Indonesian. It use Indonesian language, accommodate Indonesian bank and so on.

The idea is to make a micro job website like fiverr.com but specific for Indonesian region. There are a lot of Indonesian freelancers who willing to get micro jobs for some money and there are also a lot of demand for it. Gobann.com then wish to become a market place where Indonesian seller and buyer of micro services met.

Like any other micro job website, gobann.com also offers various easy jobs for Indonesian freelancer, all for fifty thousand rupiahs (around five dollars). Because of all jobs are valued fifty thousand rupiahs, so the website named gobann which mean fifty thousand in Indonesian slang language Chinese based.

Seller’s service offer in micro job website or also widely known as gig is called ‘kangtao’ in gobann.com. Reason behind the name is the same with the term of gobann itself. You can make kangtao as many as you want in various topics to attract many buyers to offer.

Gobann.com interface is simple if compared to most popular micro job website fiverr.com. While fiverr.com use interactive flash based interface, gobann.com use simple interface just like gigbucks.com or tenbux.com. Despite its simplicity, gobann.com yet still have elegance interface and very easy to operate boot for seller and buyer.

Gobann.com announced their self as the biggest Indonesian micro job website. This announcement may be true since I cannot find any similar Indonesian website like gobann.com.

The problem of gobann.com is its popularity is not as big as another micro job website even for Indonesia seller and buyer. There are many sellers but there are not enough buyers to accommodate all kangtaos from the seller. There even harder to find top rated buyer and seller in this site

My Personal experience is main support to the argument above.  I just have one client and it’s very hard to find another. Gobann.com’s demand list page is also very quite even when you search an entire week.

Another problem for me is about the payment method. Many of micro job website accepts PayPal to send the money from them into your own account. Different thing happen in gobann.com which require the seller to have specific Indonesian local bank account to transfer your payment. It’s quite frustrating for sellers who don’t have the accepted bank account and it happen to me.

Well, regardless of gobann.com weakness it is still a good Indonesian micro jobs website. A place for people especially Indonesian to start their freelancer career likes me. It’s a good website to increase your experience but don’t hope too much from this, at least for now.

Hopefully gobann.com will grow bigger and able to accommodate Indonesian needs for a micro job website.

    This is another indonesian alternative to fiverr where you can withdraw to paypal or your own Indonesian account.
    I personally prefer serba50ribu.com because their support is much more professional than gobann.com and I got a few more buyers on serba50ribu.com as well.
    Other than that the 2 websites are very similar.

  5. Hi Ami
    Yeah I agree with you, gobann.com looked promising at first but i guess it is becoming more deserted from day to day.
    I haven’t tried serba50ribu.com yet, but I interested to do so, the problem is I haven’t enough time for now since there are a lot of project coming on fiverr.com.
    I think joining global freelancer site is better for indonesian freelancer than local freelancer site itself..
