I’m not an experienced seller nor a successful one, the one who has never got any order, but I still wish to help new sellers like me to write a gig description that stands out.
For me, a description of 700 characters is ideal because it is neither too short nor too long, so try to keep it somewhere near 700 characters.
Make sure it does not have any spelling, grammar, or punctuation mistakes because mistakes will make you look unprofessional and create a bad impression. If you can’t ensure it yourself, then you can try using tools like Becorrect or Grammarly.
Formatting options are there for a reason, make use of them and bold all the important sentences/words that you want the seller to notice first. (You can also highlight them).
Split long paragraphs into lines and make use of bullets; instead of using commas to list whatever you offer - It will make reading it faster and easier.
Don’t forget to use SEO!
That is the clever part, use keywords in your description as much as possible; it will make your gig perform better.
- Follow this order in your gig description:
Welcome the buyers to your gig by greeting them.
You can use something like Hi! I hope you’re doing great.
Introduce yourself and let them know about your experience.
(Keep it short and simple).
Let them know the problem they are facing or might face later.
For example, Buyer is a game developer and can’t think of a good game idea to work on - It’s a complication.
Something like Making a great video game requires a great idea and, you are probably unable to think of one. Worry not! I have got you covered. should work fine.
Let them know the solution you have to their complication.
For example, You can write a game idea for them - It’s a solution.
Also, let them know what you have to offer and what they will get from you.
For example, I will provide you with a unique game idea for your next game, explained in a document. The number of words in that document depends on the subscription you choose. More words mean more detail.
Leave this part for writing something special that you offer and other sellers don’t. It can be anything from a free additional service to faster delivery. (It is optional to write this part, but doing this will give you an edge over other sellers).
Write a final line that will make them message you or place an order.
You can use something like I would love to clear any other query regarding this Gig. Do not hesitate to message me!
