Put a face to a name

Story image

Business is, after all, still human. And humans like to know who they’re working with. You can help give your task a personal touch by including a high-quality, professional photo.

If you’d rather not put your face on your task, a nice, unique-looking logo can still go a long way.

Add a clear description

Story image

It may seem basic, but it can help a lot to ensure your description of your task is as clear and concise as possible. Think to yourself - what information does the buyer need to make a decision? Ensure it is all included and easy to find. We recommend including:

  • A short, factual description of the task
  • An estimated amount of time it takes you to complete the task
  • A short paragraph describing why a buyer should choose you - what makes you so skillful? What proof do you have that you can do a good job?

Proofread and spell check your task

Good spelling and grammar indicate that you care, and you have attention to detail. It tells a buyer that getting things right is important to you.

These are very attractive qualities for a potential buyer. It will give them confidence that you will approach their task with the same attitude.

A picture paints a thousand words, a video even more

Videos are a GREAT way to communicate with potential buyers. It’s one of the best ways to show off your skill and talent and will help you generate more business for yourself. A well put-together showreel of your best work can make you seem much more credible.

Plus, like with spelling and grammar, having a video shows you have put in care and effort - both attractive qualities to buyers.

Make your title a winner

The title of your task is your shop window. Get it right, and buyers will want to come and find out more. Make sure it is clear and to the point. Even better, try to make it stand out from other people with similar tasks to you with some clever wording.

Good reviews = gold dust

You must treasure your current clients, and do your best to ensure they give you good reviews. These good reviews will in turn help you win more clients because buyers will prefer it if you have proof that you have done good work for other people before.

Good reviews will make buyers more likely to click on your task, and more likely to buy it when they have clicked.

Learn your SEO

Story image

A lot of clients will find your task by searching on Google. SEO (search engine optimization) will help ensure you appear highly on Google searches and you’ll therefore get more potential buyers clicking on your tasks.

The most important aspect of this is keywords and phrases: think about what words people will use when searching for tasks like yours, and make sure you include them in your task. Don’t forget: most people don’t search for single words, they search for phrases: 58% of searches are for three words or more.

Use the right keywords and phrases

Story image

Make sure you use relevant keywords and phrases to your skills! There’s no point getting lots of clicks on your task if you have optimized it for skills you don’t have. You won’t sell many tasks, and if you do you may generate unhappy buyers who were looking for something different.

You should optimize your page to get buyers who will be happy with what you can do.

Story image

You Are Your URL

Story image

Your URL is created by your task’s first title, and once it’s created you can’t change it.

Story image

Tag Your Task

Story image

The tags associated with your task can help potential buyers find you, and buy your task. They’re a very important part of getting traffic and business.

Make sure you only use relevant tags though - if you use irrelevant tags, and get traffic that is looking for different skills, that is no use to anyone.

Story image

Careful with copyright!

Story image

Make sure you only use your own original, genuine work in your profile and portfolio. If you use work that was created by someone else, you could be breaching copyright law and we have to take action against your account.

Be careful, and be honest... only show off your own work!

Tips for Sellers
About AnyTask

Buy or sell digital tasks

Today’s leading freelancer platforms have made tremendous leaps forward in providing people with the ability to earn a living online, whilst doing the tasks they love. Anything from making quick videos with your smartphone to logo design and translation services are sold online today, providing individuals and businesses with a cost-effective way of getting jobs done. You can get started as a seller with just a simple internet enabled smartphone.

Sell without a bank account

However, these platforms have a major restriction, in that both buyer and seller require access to a bank account. This single restriction is stopping hundreds of millions of people in unbanked regions from selling their services online, and in turn, helping them to make a better living for themselves, and their families. AnyTask is a new online marketplace, designed to overcome this very limitation. While payment is still taken from the buyer’s credit or debit card, it is delivered seamlessly to the seller in Electroneum (ETN); a world leading mobile cryptocurrency. In turn, this enables the seller to receive payment without the need of a bank account. The ETN earned can be spent in a growing list of ways, such as topping up your phone, or converting into your local currency via an exchange or enterprising agent.

Zero seller fees

Furthermore, where other platforms charge sellers up to 20% in fees, AnyTask is entirely free to the seller. AnyTask is still undergoing ongoing improvements since its launch in late 2019..
