How to create a winning gig on TmyMart?
TmyMart is a great place for a side hustle or even to earn a full-time income. There are no subscription fees and it is free to post your gigs. You can create multiple gigs to show off what you have to offer and make them attractive to potential clients. There is also no bidding on projects, the client comes straight to you.
Step 1: Find your ideal subcategory
TmyMart platform has main categories, which are further divided into subcategories. Before you create a gig, take some time to work out your ideal niche and the services you’re going to offer. Make sure you select the relevant category for your gig.
Step 2: Create an appealing title
It’s important to highlight your unique selling point and say what’s in it for the buyer in the 80 characters you have to title your gig. Keep in mind that buyers will be scrolling through thousands of sellers, so they will most probably use the gig title as a handy way to decide which gigs are worth their time. Make sure you highlight your unique selling point and what is it that makes your gig better than the others. Here are our top tips for writing effective TmyMart gig titles!
Step 3: Choose your Subcategories and Tags
It is important to choose the correct relevant sub-category and tags. This will help clients find you easily through search.
Step 4: Price Your Gig Correctly
Make sure you properly price your gig. The platform currently allows sellers to offer up to three different packages:
When pricing your gig, keep these in mind:
- Number of Packages: It’s not necessary for you to use all three packages, although many buyers do like additional premium options, so offer them where possible.
- Name Your Package: Choose an eye-catching title for each of your packages, and make certain that the difference between them is crystal clear.
- Package Description: Briefly explain what’s included in each package, and why you’ve included it. You’re only allowed 100 characters here, so you may have to get creative to fit in everything you’d like to say. Just make sure the offerings are clear to any potential buyers.
- Delivery Time: How long you’ll take to complete a project? Depending on the scope of the work, this may vary greatly between packages.
- Revisions: The number of times you’ll alter your work upon the buyer’s request. Premium packages often include additional revisions.
- Price: Your basic package should always be priced the lowest, and your premium the highest. Remember, you can always change your price later, so in the beginning, it may be smart to keep them low to help build reviews.
Step 5: Create a Compelling Description
Here you have to give as many details as you possibly can. Don’t leave any important details out, as your buyers should have an accurate enough description to determine whether or not what you’re offering will satisfy their needs. Being too vague may lead to unhappy clients and negative feedback, potentially destroying future opportunities on the platform.
Step 6: Add Visual Media
You already know that a picture is worth a thousand words, it is true even in this case. Always add images of your previous work to entice potential new clients. If you don’t have any, or if it’s not applicable, you should still try to add some sort of captivating image to act as your gig’s cover photo. This is what appears in the search results, so it’s important to use something relevant to your services.
Step 7: Market your Gig
Once your gig is live, you can then promote it through social platforms, such as Facebook or Twitter, simply by clicking the provided links.
