Some writers wonder why jobs change price on the job boards. Many of our clients are using SmartPost bidding to place their jobs on the board. 

SmartPost is our patented bidding technology for buyers to submit jobs to the job boards and get the most closely matched writer at the best price possible. 

When using the New Clients Job Board, the buyer selects criteria for the writers they need, such as language and location, then selects a minimum and maximum bid. 

The system then starts showing the jobs at the lowest price, to 5-star writers that match their criteria, and it slowly moves up to their max bid, still only showing to 5-star writers. If no 5-star writers take the job at the max bid, it will go back to the lowest bid and open up to both 4 and 5-star writers, and repeat, until it has cycled through all star levels and all bids. Then it will stay at the max bid until taken. 

When using the My Clients Job Board, buyers can also use SmartPost to set a minimum and maximum rate. If you see a job you like but the rate is lower than you'd prefer, you might hold out to see if the rate offer increases — however, other writers might claim the job in the meantime.
