You decide what to pay
How sandcurve works
Welcome to sandcurve.com, the first site to let the customer decide the price that they would like to pay for the services they need. The sandcurve project was created to accomplish two things:
- Test if the customer will give fair market price for a service provided
- Prove the sandcurve thesis: Supply and Demand of services will create an equilbrium for price.
Sandcurve Open Project
We are inviting all people that provide a service to sign up to sandcurve. The project was coceived to give customers the opportunity to state the price they are willing to pay for your service. Whether you are already providing your service professionally or you want to gain more experience performing your service, this is the place for you.
Signing up to the site is free and we ask that you already have a blog and a portfolio of your work available on another open project site. We find that its better that you have both available. Additonally, you will need to have an image of you or your company logo. We will provide you with a profile page with all your essential information and links to your blog, pictures, portfolio, or files. We will also provide you with an online submission form for potential customers to request your service.
Need some social sites to host your portfolio or blog.
Using the directory
You may feel free to look through the diretory of our service providers. Remember, all the service providers are voluntary participants of the sandcurve open project. If you would like to request the services of a sandcurve member, simply click the request for work button and fill out the necessary information needed by the sandcurve member.
We'll do the rest. Sandcurve will forward your information to the member. The sandcurve member will contact you to indicate their ability to do the work that you need.
Why you decide what to pay
We did this for you to decide what the fair price is for the service you are trying to get done. By submitting an offer to do your job, you have now placed a bid in for the person that you want to do your work. Most service providers are accused of overcharging for the services that they complete. Most service providers complain that customers are unreasonably and want more than they pay for a service. It's a continuous cycle of misunderstanding.
Sandcurve removes those barriers to service by implementing a supply and demand system that will give the customer the power to decide price. Be careful when deciding what you will pay for a service, supply for a member's services can be limited due to time constraints. if your offer is too low, then the member may elect to select another customer's offer.
The Theory of Supply and Demand
Supply and demand is an economic model based on price, utility and quantity in a market. It concludes that in a competitive market, price will function to equalize the quantity demanded by consumers, and the quantity supplied by producers, resulting in an economic equilibrium of price and quantity.
When viewed from the services industry, supply is the time that a supplier has to do a service. Demand is the amount of customers looking to have a service performed by a specific supplier. Price is a sliding scale of the equilibrium created when a supplier accepts a job at a given point in time. Sandcurve will prove this theory by allowing customers to offer a price for a particular service. the supplier may reject that offer if other customers are willing to pay more for the particular service at that given time. This will formulate a price equilibrium. That equilibrium will always shift due to supply and demand shifts in the services marketplace.
