For some freelancers PPH is a main source of income for their business. This doesn’t matter whether they are a writer, website developer or amazing administrator.
With this amount of pressure, there is a good chance that you will want to maximise the amount of work that you win on PPH. But how do you do that?
Because we want our freelancers to make sure that they win the most work possible, we have put together some of the best ways that you can try to promote yourself and win yourself some more work through the PPH portal.
Get featured on our blog
Are you a bit of an expert in your industry? Think that you have something worthwhile to say? Why not share your own thoughts on our blog? We welcome guests posts from a variety of freelancers on the site, and if we like what you have to say, then we will feature it on our blog. Not only is this great exposure for you, but it also makes sure that prospective clients know that you are the person to come to.
Have a Freelancer Story Interview
Not only do we like to share blog posts that offer value, but we also like to share blog posts that share a story about the freelancers who have built their business using PPH. We call these our Freelancer Story Interviews (here’s a recent one) and they work to showcase how you have got to where you are and what your plans are for the future.
Feature your profile
If you want to make sure that your profile is visible, then PPH offer the opportunity for you to feature your profile for a set fee. Doing this increases your chances of securing new leads by as much as 3 times, which could be the boost to your business that you are really looking for.
You will feature on the top of the list of freelancers for your particular skill area, and you will have a featured banner too. You will also feature on the email newsletters that are sent out to the email list, meaning that you can draw more attention to what you offer that way.
Use social media
Social media is incredibly useful to boost a range of businesses, and if you are a freelancer on PPH, then why not use our social media to help raise your profile. All you need to do is share a link on our Facebook, Twitter, Google + or any other social media profile, and you will soon see some more interest in what you have to offer!
Be an hourlie of the day
The hourlie has become a great way to offer quick to buy snippets of your time for a particular task. Here at PPH we have an opportunity for you to target your focus on one particular hourlie, rather than across your profile. For a set fee you will be placed at the top of the search listings, using a special ribbon, these particular featured ads are known to get as many as 10 times more clicks. You will also be featured in the hourlies of the day newsletter which will be sent out to the entire mailing list. If that wasn’t enough, you will also be able to gain access to a number of different images (19 million in fact) which will give you a chance to create a professional and appealing hourlie.
So, there you have it, all the different ways that PPH can help you to be more visible and to gain more work. Now all you need to do is start making sure that you have time to complete all that lovely work that you are going to win.
