Whatever your Gig is, whether it’s in graphic design, programming, writing, or anything else, it’s important to find a creative way to demonstrate why you are the best choice for that category – through your profile. If you’re a designer then you should have an awesome and visually intriguing profile picture. If you’re a writer then your description should be engaging and well written.
While it’s important to keep your profile professional, you should also let your quirks and unique personality shine through. Whether this means you’re wearing your favorite band’s t-shirt in your profile picture (even if it’s a professionally done headshot) or you reference your hobbies in your description. Keep it subtle, and remember it’s all about the Gigs, but show that you bring something special to the table.
Show your true face
It’s human nature to want to see the face of the person with whom you’re communicating. If you can have a profile picture that clearly shows your face, it will make your profile look more professional and will show buyers that they’re working with a real individual person.
Use your description space wisely
While it’s good to put fun or light-hearted touches to your description, each word is taking up valuable real estate. Don’t waste space on too many things that are off-topic. Focus first on writing a clear and sharp description of who you are and then tweak it to make it more personable within the space limits.
When it comes to making your profile stand out, it’s really about showcasing who you are, why you do what you do, and the principles that guide your work. Treat your profile as an opportunity to introduce yourself to potential customers and create a space where they can get to know you and your professional style. A great profile inspires confidence and enthusiasm in buyers and is an important part of building your Omezah business!
