PROMOTE YOUR SERVICE
So, I’ve signed up – what now? Promote your service everywhere!
The worst thing you can do is simply sign up to Post My Skill, create a gig and then sit back and wait for someone to find you. If you do this, your gig will more than likely fall below the first two pages of the site and this in turn means that no-one will see you gig, which equals no work! So, you need to market your gigs to make them stand out – and to do this, you’ll need to drive as much traffic as possible to the gigs.
Promote Your Service Everywhere with referral links:
1. We find the best conversion rate from forums. Place your referral link in your signature or respond to “Want To Buy” – threads with shortlinks directly to a related service.
2. Another great method is Twitter. Respond to those talking about being a freelance writer, graphics & web designer, appp development, music/audio marketing and SEO with your referral link.
3. Your own website is probably one of the best sources for traffic and directing new clients through your referral link.
Add shortlinks where they can be seen, promote your own services with your referral link.
4. Other social media sites.
Post My Skill has added another feature to the home page called Featured jobs, Noteworthy.
* Price for featured job on Homepage: $5 USD.
* Price for featured job on Categories: $4 USD.
* Price for featured job on Subcategories: $2 USD.
* Featured interval: 15 days
Discounts & Coupons
You can now create digital coupons and offer discounts on a single service or set of gigs. If you start with a clear goal in mind, you can most effectively use offers to meet your objectives, build customer loyalty, and increase revenues. Under the Jobs tab in menu, you will now see a Discounts page (log in to your Post My Skill account):
Specify which type of discount you want to offer.
What type of coupon?
Percent: You can offer any percentage off the list price of items in your service.
Fixed: You can offer a fixed amount off the list price of items in your service.
Running a special offer can help entice new buyers to take the leap and try your freelance service. They’re also a great way to incentivize buyers to spend more than they usually would. Special sales and offers are also a great way to get the word out about your gigs.
