Make sure to know your customers; know what they want and what is expected of you. Keep in mind that generally as a freelancer you’re offering a very specific service, your customers will therefore have very specific needs. Ultimately the customers who are purchasing from you will want to know exactly what they are buying; they will want as many details as possible. Keeping your customer informed and speaking in a communicative way is the best way to get a start.
Now for the second rule, communication is a science, and there are more ways to communicate than just to communicate. (I promise that makes sense) Presentation is the first way to communicate, striking pictures, colourful graphics, these are the best ways to approach. Make sure to choose a picture or a graphic that’s got a good level of detail, nobody likes blurry pictures, and nobody likes dull colours. If you use graphics pick the brighter colours, perhaps look to colour theory, the subconscious mind is what affects a person ultimately more than anything else. Look to what the subconscious associates with each colour and choose your colour fittingly. Providing psychiatric or otherwise healthcare services? Blue is a colour associated with caring, providing artistic services or other creative means? Green is generally what you will wish for here, providing mediating, legal or otherwise business focused services? Red show’s a decisive and dominating manner and generally is perceived well in the world of business.
Finally, details, details, details! Yes there is a messaging system on Revolancer, however you need to get to that stage first. The best way to get there is to include every detail possible within your basic listing, you want to ensure a potential customer get’s a thorough idea of your business and get’s such an understanding without spending much time. Nobody would purchase your service if it took them an hour to read your listing, however at the same time a 30 second read which doesn’t actually tell them anything would lead to the same success rate. You want to find the golden balance between the time it takes a person to read your listing and the level of detail you include in the listing.
So finally, remember, know your customer, keep them informed, keep a good level of presentation and a deep understanding of colour, and finally ensure you have every detail you need!! Follow these steps and your listing will go far!
