Tips for getting hired
Send a professional quote.
Your quote is your first impression. Customers are looking to hire the best professional for their projects. Treat your quote as a professional introduction to a potential new customer. Greet them by name, address their needs or concerns, and ask them questions. Most importantly, let them know why you are the best one for the job.
Share your rates.
Customers are more likely to hire when they know the cost. Explain your rates in detail. Tell the customer exactly what to expect for that rate, why you charge what you do, and how that rate is a fair price to pay for your services. If you can't add a price, that's fine, just be sure to explain why you omitted the price.
Create an awesome profile.
Your profile is automatically sent to customers you send a quote to. Make sure your profile advertises you well. Make sure your profile image is inviting; a company logo or picture of you is best. We make it easy to list your years of experience and credentials too so be sure to add them.
Reviews are the number one selling point for service businesses. By getting 5+ reviews you double your chances of getting hired. You can get past and current customers to post reviews on your profile so that when you send a quote to a new customer they can read about all the customers that enjoy working with you.
Use up your credits.
You won't get hired every time you send a quote. On average you will get hired 1 or 2 times out of 10 quotes, so keep quoting. Not all customers will reply, that is OK. Just keep sending quotes and you will make a nice return on your investment.
