i need suggestions ,wether to make it or not please?
Chances are if you are started a new gig category there won’t be traffic. Not always the case, but 99.999% of the time it is the case.
There will be very less buyers for such service. Do you offer other modelling or designs ?
Product designs ? I don’t know what they are called.
You have to offer great unique services to stand out.
Reply to @kay2809: i can offer design sketches and photoshop renderings,are these enough?
i am an industrial designer, i can design almost every product like automobiles,furniture shoes etc,please suggest me something,i am not getting orders with my gigs
Reply to @landongrace: there will be no new category, dont you think i can use illustration as my category?
Reply to @asiscreations: Do you know programs like 3ds max, Maya, AutoCad?
Reply to @kay2809: yes autocad and max,but 3d modeling is really a time consuming thing, i said shoe design because i am working as a shoe designer ,i know how things work for em, i want to enjoy my gig
I may be different but here’s my take on it. When I have a crazy idea for a unique gig I do put some effort into it. I still craft it to fit well enough in a current category but I make sure the keywords are strong as well. Then I post it and share it on social media and wait. Most of the time my unique ones get few if any sales and later I delete them. I’ve had one take off enough to get ranked high on Recommended which ended up bringing more traffic to my main gig. I say put your ideas out for a test run but don’t get discouraged if they flop.
Reply to @fonthaunt: thank you for your kind words and i sure i will put some effort in it.
One suggestion I will offer is to structure your gig towards people looking for designs for their inventions. often times people have an idea but find it hard to put their idea into a design or model. I will pay for such a gig
It is like with any design. it has to be the customers idea and not your own.
Reply to @ispire_videos: you mean that it should not be just shoe design?
Personally, I would start on something smaller. I do instruction manuals, which can take quite a while to write and am currently trying to decide on something else to offer in order to get my ratings/ level up. Just think to yourself, are you really going to want to offer unique shoe designs at $45 a pop?
I’m not in any way saying don’t offer that, if you enjoy it and the above doesn’t bother you, then go for it! The best category for this would probably be Graphics & design> Other
Reply to @philtabest: i understand what ur saying but you know that feeling when there is a single order for you out there so atlast i thought to do something unique.
I think shoe design has a lot of potential. Think of all the shoe companies in the world, all the shoe designers looking for inspirations, stuck in a rut, or even customers who want custom shoes but want to see a design before meeting an offline designer. Go ahead and do that gig, see what happens. Maybe it will be a hit.
i have started my gig,now most of you are more experienced . i want you guys to check my gig and tell me is it ok or not or any other improvements?
Creating a gig wont hurt you, so I would suggest you to go for it!
Then find forums online related to shoe designs etc and promote your gig overthere!
I remember when i created my gig to offer Discourse Installation services, it was the only gig present. Then in promoted it in the respected community and now i have like 3 orders in queue!
Reply to @munimz: thanks for the suggestion,check out my gig and please give me some review here about it.
