I signed up 10/1/2020, and got my first gig last week and completed it on Thursday, so not bad after just two weeks.
What I found helpful was:
- Reading forums
- Studying other popular gigs
- Doing keyword research, trying to keep out of the gigs that had over 1,000 sellers - the less popular keywords or long-tail keywords
- Worked hard on creating eye-catching Gig image (I think this may be the most important) - people really do respond to how a gig looks, the font, size, and color as well as the image matter.
There is a lot of competition so learn how to do your gig the best you can. Eventually, the business will follow.
