Wow, people are a lot nicer to you with this question then my question. Anyhow this was the guy that said a few things that seemed most helpful:
*Make sure your gig titles include your tags.
*Be sure to use your tags in the description body.
*Always use videos. Even if it seems pointless to your offerings- make a connection to people by putting a face (a charming face in this case, you devil) to your services.
*Specify your offerings from the perspective of how it benefits the client.
*There seems to be a consensus that the algorithm favors people who are on line for close to eight hours. It’s probably just the benefit of registering as “on line,” but who knows?
*Definitely try your hand at buyers request. Make your offers clear. Use the potential clients name, paraphrase the request to identify your understanding of their need and explain some of your approach. My personal advice is to end the introduction with an open ended question (but this is personal preference).
*Be where your customers are. In my case - I want to be where the people who need music may be, not the people who write it. This includes forums, groups and gatherings. Integrate but don’t pitch. Spamming yields initial results but after awhile your posts will be like forgotten furniture.
*Drink more coffee. It thickens the skin and widens up your “working hours.”
*Become part of the community. Sellers are the best buyers. There’s a huge chance that professionals will need your services at some point… there’s a better chance that they’ll reach for someone they’ve talked to before.
*Once you’ve edited your gigs to where you want them- don’t touch them. Editing has some negative effects to the algorithm.
*Use the FAQ on your page. Include more tag phrases in this section.
*Once you’ve gotten some buys - throw in extras. This encourages repeat buyers and glowing reviews.
*Don’t ask your clients to review. Some won’t and you’ll be frustrated because you treated them with the respect and work ethic that should ensure praise. It’s cool, they may be back again. Love on them anyway.
