Creating A Gig
If you have come to Fourerr to make money, creating a gig is the best place to start. Once you have completed your profile, click on “Create a Gig” on the tool bar at the top of the page or simply write in the box on the Homepage which says: What are you willing to do for money?
“I will _______________”. After you have entered what you are willing to do for $4, click “Go” and our gig will have its title.
You will go straight to a green page where you select your gig’s category, and whether you want it to be Featured (this costs $5 and means your gig appears at the top of the homepage for 30 days).
Next, enter your gig Description – try and be detailed about what you are offering.
In the box below, enter your Instructions to Buyer. If your gig is the type of job that needs specific information, then ask your buyer to provide you with it. For example, if you are advertising a photo editing service, your instructions to the buyer might be:
“Please send me your photo in jpg format and tell me how you would like me to enhance the picture – I can:
-get rid of blemishes or red eye
-can change the picture to black and white
-can add objects or a border.”
Next, enter your Tags. These are the keywords that will make searching for your gig a lot easier for buyers. Ensure that they describe your gig, are relevant and are spelt correctly.
After this, you need to let your potential buyer know how long it will take you to complete your gig – make sure that you allow for other work you have on and be as realistic as you can with your time estimate – late gigs could mean that you have lost a potential customer.
Finally, add an image to your gig. Click the “Browse” button to upload a picture you have on your computer of a sample of your work – this gives buyers a chance to decide if they want to buy your gig or not.
Click “Submit” and your first gig is ready for approval!
