WritersGig is a freelance marketplace that brings buyers and writers together as businesses for effective collaboration. To land big offers on WritersGig, you have to create an enticing Gig to attract more clients.
In this article, I’m going to show you how to create high converting gigs on WritersGigs. Just follow me closely.
Here we go…
1. Get Your First Order ASAP and Get Some Reviews
The very step to getting a high converting gig on WritersGig is to get your first order. This will help you gain the trust of prospective buyers.
After you’ve done your first order or more, you can simply request the person you worked for to do a review for you.
You may ask a friend to purchase your service and review your Gig with 5 stars. This is against our Terms and Conditions anyway. I’d recommend you to not do this more than once, or might as well just never do it since that doesn’t sound like a good idea to me.
I’d generally recommend you to go with doing buyer requests every day and you will definitely get a buyer to contact you and buy your gig if you are doing things correctly.
When you have a review on the gig, your profile looks populated with some content and you become a rated seller. I recommend doing the best you can with your first order. It goes a long way to sell you out.
2. Do Proper On-Page SEO of your Gig
Just like bloggers do SEO of their pages, on WritersGig you have to do the On-Page SEO on your gig so that it appears higher in search results. This can simply be done with the help of keywords. Let’s have a look at it:
Add keywords to Gig Title
Only one keyword included in the gig title can help increase the chance of your Gig being ranked.
For Example: “I will write you engaging SEO contents that will rank on Google’s first page within 24 hours” (Here “engaging SEO contents” and rank on Google’s first page are the keywords).
When you’re creating a gig, it is important to add high value gig Tags. These tags are to be used for entering keywords that buyers search for.
How to find the right keywords?
You can find the accurate keywords for your Gig by using search terms which the buyer may be using when they are looking for services.
Note that the above keywords can be used in combination, such as “SEO” and “Content Writer” can make up “SEO Content Writer” so that when someone searches for that, your Gig may appear on first page.
You can also check what tags other sellers have added in their gigs
By scrolling to the very bottom of a Gig, you will find the tags the seller has added in their Gig. This is how they look:
Add Keywords to description
In a similar way, you have to add keywords to your Gig Description as well but here’s a big TIP: Don’t over-do it. You can add the keywords at the beginning of your Gig Description.
Example: “Do you have content needs for your blog? Worry not! Because I am an expert who has helped many clients write SEO contents that rank on Googles first page.”
This is a good practice. Your Gig URL cannot be changed once your Gig is published, the link for the Gig is auto-generated from the Gig Title.
If the keywords are included correctly in the Gig Title, they will automatically appear in your Gig URL.
3. Make trustworthy clients
When you have given excess value, more clients will get to trust you and they’ll never hesitate in working with you again.
In this way you’ll be able to always maintain your ratings and your cash-flow will be regular.
When working with buyers, make sure the price is good and you are focusing on their satisfaction. Don’t hesitate with doing multiple revisions.
4. Increase your conversion rate
Conversion Rate means how many new clients inbox you and end up having an order with you. You have to communicate better. More conversion rate also helps in ranking your Gig faster in search results.
As WritersGig will recognize that you are working on a daily basis and benefiting their platform, they’ll start benefiting you.
5. Have a good Average Selling Rate
An Average selling rate is the average amount of earnings you have with your orders on WritersGig. If you have almost all your orders over ₦3000 consistently (without having any orders of ₦1500 or ₦2000 in between) then soon your Average selling rate will be ₦3000.
WritersGig search shows buyers Gigs according to their budget, so when buyers select a budget your Gig will be shown because your average selling rate is according to their budget. This means that more average selling rate means increasing cash.
This is something to be focused on from the beginning when you first start selling, as it becomes hard to change the average Selling rate when you have around 1000 orders.
- If you have regular clients, ask them if you can work for them for a while and get a combined order of either ₦3000 or ₦4000 so you can maintain a good average Selling rate.
6. Stay online 24/7
You have to always be online so that even when buyers select “Active Sellers” in search, your Gig will be shown.
To stay online always, make sure to Install the WritersGig app on your Mobile and always stay online from there.
If you use your laptop to stay active then that would be more better, but make sure it’s always connected to internet. Using a Laptop for work seems more professional.
If your WritersGig selling becomes way too low, this may be because WritersGig wants you to spread the word. They want you to promote your service on Social Media.
This can be done by simply sharing it on your social media accounts. A better way would be to join groups about your niche and share it there.
- Create your own social presence by creating a Facebook, Instagram and Twitter page. By promoting the page, you can increase likes and share with a similar audience. You can even get hired by organizations or people on Facebook.
- Focus on helping people on Social Media instead of just looking around for money.
8. Create multiple gigs in the same category
To increase your chances of being hired, you can make multiple Gigs in the same category but different subcategories. For example: In “Content Development” you can make two gigs: one for “Content Writing” and other for “Copy Writing”.
- Check what Gigs people of the same niche as you are creating.
- You can also create more than two gigs depending on your skills.
9. Meet Deadlines
Make sure to meet your deadlines always. This is will boost the confidence and trust your clients have in you.
