Gawin receives thousands of job requests every month, and every single person who submits a request is keen on finding a trusted, verified service provider to assist them with their projects.
Never underestimate the power of a great profile page. Whenever you send a quotation, the potential customer is able to view everything on your Gawin profile - from your company description to the gallery of photos and most importantly, the reviews you have collected from previous customers.
Having an established business is not enough. If you want to convince others that you are the right person to hire, then you need to make your profile stand out to win more jobs. Here’s what you should do:
Attach A Quality Photo To Your Profile Page
Our research has shown that pros with professionally-taken profile photos on Gawin are hired more than those without a photo. Profile pictures are important because they set the first impression for viewers. Avoid selfies, because they reduce professionalism. If you run a renovation company, try to include a photo of you and your team at work at a job site. If you’re a photographer, put a nice, professional photo of yourself to boost your credibility. Instead of photos, you could also put up your company logo. Just don’t leave it blank.
Describe Your Services In “About Me”
Include a friendly description about your company and services in this section. Keep it brief and straight-to-the-point, because viewers aren’t keen on reading a lengthy essay about yourself. In your profile, be sure to elaborate on:
- What you do (talk about your services and how long you’ve been in the business)
- What makes you stand out from your competitors (eg: if you’re a cleaning company, you could state that you use non-chemical products, or that you provide training for your maids to ensure that they are professional and consistent in their work. Be honest and don’t make promises you can’t keep)
Include your rates and explain the price estimate (If you have fixed rates, list them there and explain what they consist of. Include any info on extra services that you offer and provide rates for those too)
Fill Up The Photo Gallery With Samples Of Your Work
Here’s your chance to boast about what you do best! Photos speak a thousand words, and people are drawn to images. So attach a minimum of 5 photos that showcase your work. If you’re a makeup artist, put up some of the best pictures of your stunning brides and models. If you’re a caterer, fill your gallery with pictures of your good-looking meals. If you’re an interior designer, include images of your finished work. The images should be clear, not blurry. And don’t forget that these images are a reflection of your work, so try to pick the best ones out of your portfolio!
Include An Updated Link To Your Portfolio Or Website
If you have an online site or portfolio, add that to your profile. This is how you convince potential customers that you are good at what you do. If you don’t have a portfolio or website set up yet, we’d encourage you to consider starting one.
Boost Your Customer Reviews
Reviews are your ticket to scoring more jobs. If you want to draw more customers in, you need to give them a valid reason to believe that you are worth their money - and there’s no better way to do that than with good customer reviews! Collect as many reviews as you can from your jobs by gently reminding your customers to leave a brief testimonial about your work after you’ve finished. And if you don’t have any reviews from Kaodim customers yet, don’t fret. You can always upload some of the older reviews from previous clients in your photo gallery.
