Creating a Gig

At Omezah, the service you offer and sell within the marketplace is termed as a “Gig.” Your Gig is an opportunity to showcase your talent to potential customers, as well as to provide all the information they may need prior to placing an order. 
 

To create a Gig:

  • After you log in, click Go to your Dashboard 
  • Click CREATE SSERVICE.
    Note: If this is your first time creating a Gig, you have to submit a Valid identity Card.
  • On the new page that opens, you will see the field where you have to fill your Gig Details 

Step 1: Gig overview

  • In the GIG TITLE field, write a title (up until 80 characters). Make sure that your Gig title is short, clear, and to the point. You want your buyers to recognize what you are offering immediately.  

  • In the CATEGORY drop-down menu, select the appropriate category and subcategory for your Gig. Omezah will recommend categories and subcategories based on your title. To select a category, just click the relevant link.
    • Note: Gaming is not a category. If you provide services related to Gaming, select a category related to Gaming (or define the criteria in the Gig Metadata area further down). For example, if your service is Game Design, select Graphics & Design > Game Design.

  • In the SERVICE TYPE drop-down menu, choose a service type to ensure that you appear in the search results related to the category you selected.
    • Note: This feature is only available for certain categories.
  • In the GIG METADATA area, select the relevant criteria for each topic.
    • Note: This feature is only available for certain categories.
  • In the SEARCH TAGS field, add one to five words or phrases that best describe your Gig, then Save & Continue.

Step 2: Scope and pricing

  • In the Name your package area, write a brief title for the service you are offering.
  • Describe the details of your offering in the area provided.
  • In the Delivery Time drop-down menu, select the number of days it will take for you to complete your Gig.
  • Select the various items you would like to include in your service (Extras). This depends on the type of service you are offering. For example, if you are offering logo design services, you can select options from a predefined list of items, such as the number of logos to include, the source files, or a high-resolution file.
  • In the Revisions drop-down menu, select the number of revisions you include in your Gig. This is not mandatory, but it is recommended for Gigs where customization or creation is done. 
  • In the Price drop-down menu, select a price for your service 

Step 3: Description and FAQs

  • In the Description field, briefly describe your Gig (up to 1,200 characters). Be as detailed as possible so buyers are able to determine if your Gig meets their needs.
    • Note: If you add a URL, only include URLs from Omezah’s approved list. Do not add contact information.
  • In the Frequently Asked Questions area, click Add FAQ.
    • Note: Here, you can add answers to the most commonly asked questions. Your FAQs will be displayed on your Gig page. There is a limit of 8 FAQs allowed.
  • Add a question you think buyers may ask, and then write your answer.
  • Click Add.
  • When finished adding your FAQs, click Save & Continue.

STEP 4: Gallery

  • In the Gig Photos area, drag an image or click Browse and select an image. Upload up to three photos that describe or relate to your Gig. The photos can be samples of your work. Each image should be in JPEG, PNG, GIF, or BMP format, and up to 50 MB. The Gig must have at least one image uploaded to be published. The image should be owned by you. Do not use copyrighted images or images downloaded from the internet or your Gig won’t be approved.
  • In the Gig Video area, drag a video or click Browse and select a video.
    • Notes:
      • This field is mandatory for the Video & Animation category but optional for all other categories. Make sure your video is no longer than 75 seconds and is less than 50 MB. We recommend that you mention that your services are offered exclusively on Omezah.
      • Once you add a video, it will be used for the thumbnail in the marketplace (in place of the Gig photos).
      • Do not add contact information on your Gig’s video. 
  • In the Gig Audio area, drag an audio file or click Browse and select a file.
    • Notes:
      • This option is not available in all categories.
      • Supported formats are mp3 and MPEG. Make sure your audio is no longer than 3:30 minutes, and that it is less than 10 MB.
  • In the Gig PDF area, drag a PDF or click Browse and select a PDF. You may upload up to two PDF files.
  • Click Save & Continue.

  1. After you log in, from the Selling menu, click Gigs.
  2. Find the Gig you’d like to edit, and from the drop-down list on the right, select Edit.
  3. Make the changes you want to make and click Save.
