EXPERTS EXCHANGE STORE
Gear, gadgets, courses, and more can now be found at the Experts Exchange Store! We’ve partnered with StackCommerce to bring you exclusive deals on tech related goodies, like bundles of certification courses, bluetooth speakers, computer repair kits, and even some freebies! Check out the store.
HEADLINES FROM AROUND THE WEB, ALL IN ONE PLACE
Say goodbye to crowding your bookmark bar with tech news sites, because you can now get your tech information, updates, and headlines all right here on Experts Exchange. We’ve built a page that lets you browse the latest articles from CNet, BBC, Wired, and more. We’ve also added in the ability to add RSS feeds of your own in order to give you a customizable way to read the news that matters to you.
GET PAID, FASTER.
The top request we have heard from the freelancers among you is to update the payout process for earnings through Live and Gigs. We took a hard look at the schedule, and have made your earnings a high priority! The payouts for Live and Gigs will now transfer to your account twice a week, rather than twice a month. Check out your earnings dashboard to see the new schedule.
TURN YOUR QUESTION INTO A GIGS PROJECT OR LIVE CONVERSATION
Have you ever had an urgent question that wasn’t answered as quickly as you’d hoped? Or realized that the issue in your question may require more work than you anticipated? Now, with the click of a button, you can turn your original question into a Live help request or a Gigs project. Ask a question and try it out!
MESSAGING GETS AN UPDATE
Experts Exchange’s on-site messenger is now free and available to all members! This brand new design still retains all past messages, but makes it easier than ever to connect with other members. In addition to the major UI update, you now also have the ability to search your previous messages by user or keyword, send group messages, and quickly connect with other members on Live and Gigs. Try it out!
VENDOR TOPIC ADDITIONS
We are always striving to connect you directly with those most qualified to answer questions about the technologies you use every day. We have taken that one step further by adding Vendor Topic Areas, where members can ask questions and get answers from not only our community’s experts, but also representatives of the products themselves. To name a few, Western Digital and Exclaimer now have vendor topics, with many more to come.
Check out the latest additions, and as always, feel free to author content in areas you are passionate about to earn points and gain recognition. Browse topics now.
COURSES ON EXPERTS EXCHANGE
We recently sent out a survey to you asking what new features on Experts Exchange would add the most value to your membership, and we heard you loud and clear! As a result, we are in the process of developing a platform for online technology courses, training, and tutorials. This will provide another opportunity for revenue sharing for those who post courses, so please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
