Make your Task stand out on the AnyTask™ Platform

Make your Task stand out on the AnyTask™ Platform

The AnyTask.com Social Media Manager is back with more suggestions on making your profile shine brighter to get more Buyers looking at your Task offerings

Having a Task that stands out against the rest is crucial for success on the AnyTask™ Platform, says Social Media Manager Stef Murphy in his new video on how to make your Task shine on AnyTask.com.

The AnyTask.com freelance marketplace is now home to over 30,000 active tasks. That means that the chances of being noticed lie with how clear and concise your Task description is. So, let's dive into Stef's recommendations.

Your portfolio needs to showcase your work "Having a great portfolio is a must," says Stef. The AnyTask™ Platform allows Sellers to upload their work to their Task(s) profile(s). That enables Sellers to showcase their skills before the thousands of Buyers visiting AnyTask.com.

Buyers are likely to prefer Sellers who showcase varied works rather than repeating the same one. Stef recommends showcasing work you've done on AnyTask.com. But, he adds, if you have not yet had a Buyer purchase from you, then upload something you've done before.

Sellers must only showcase original work, said Stef, adding, "I can't stress this enough. After all, it has to reflect what you are capable of as a freelancer. It's also very easy to spot plagiarised work. And because clients can't use plagiarised content, it could lead to a negative review." Buyers can quickly Google search work for plagiarism, he emphasises.

Remember, he says, the AnyTask™ Platform works best if Sellers upload images at 1024x640 pixels to look best in search results and on the Task page.


1. Titles need to be short for best SEO results

Your portfolio is only 50% of your profile, and it doesn't say everything about the Task you are offering, says Stef. "Now, I know it's tempting to keep this brief, especially if you're someone with multiple skills."

So, Stef recommends keeping it concise but explaining as a Seller what you will deliver to your Buyer. And he gave the following example: "I will create a modern social media banner/display ad/poster for your business."

Stef says you shouldn't "be afraid to create multiple Tasks with titles explaining what you can do for the customer rather than creating one Task for everything."

 

2. Don't miscategorise your Task

The AnyTask social media manager went on to say that he knows it can be "tempting to put your Task into as many categories as possible but doing this could damage your chances of gaining customers."

If you create a social media banner Task, make sure it lives inside the social media banner category. Doing that could also get your Task rejected by AnyTask.com's vetting team. Being in more categories that aren't appropriate doesn't mean more purchases.

3. Your description needs to be descriptive

"Your description is your chance to go into detail about how you will go about creating your task," Stef says. "Think about things you can offer the Buyer like two concept designs and a final delivery, or what programs you use to create your work or how long you think the project will take."

Stef also says Sellers shouldn't oversell their Tasks. "Be truthful to your skill as a freelancer. It's equally as important not to undersell yourself either by missing out crucial details in your description."

4. Fill out your profile to the full.

He also has suggestions for the Seller profile picture. There are "two options you can go for here. The first is to add a portrait of yourself to show that you are a real person." Alternatively, he adds, "attach a logo. This could be the freelance business name that you've created for yourself or even your name."

Stef explains that a profile picture or logo will ensure your profile and Tasks look as professional as possible. He also spoke of the profile description where Sellers can describe their skills and professional experience.

"You could include the types of design you do, which software you like to use, what types of industries you've worked in, or even how many years you've been a freelancer."

 

 

Tips for Sellers
About AnyTask

Buy or sell digital tasks

Today’s leading freelance 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 is 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. The AnyTask™ Platform is a new online marketplace matching Buyers and Sellers of digital Tasks and designed to overcome this limitation. While payment is still taken from the Buyer’s credit or debit card, it is delivered seamlessly to the Seller in ETN; a world-leading mobile cryptocurrency created by Electroneum Ltd. This enables the Seller to receive payment without the need for a bank account. The ETN earned can be spent in a growing list of ways, such as topping up your phone or converting it into your local currency via an exchange.

Zero Seller fees

Furthermore, where other platforms may charge Sellers up to 20% in fees, the AnyTask Platform is entirely free to the Seller. The AnyTask Platform continues to evolve with ongoing improvements since its launch in late 2019.
