How to win more work on PPH

   

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

Get featured on our blog and win more work on PPHAre 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

Use social media and win more work on PPHSocial 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.

    I presume this is the site I have been looking for from inception and hope I will not regret anything here. As a graphic designer from Nigeria, I will prefer the hourlie, but what is the process of receiving the pay?

  • Mohiuddin Milon

    Awesome system

  • Gadi Bizinyan

    PPH – Please answer the following questions:

    1) The blog entry option, I have an idea for a good post relevant for buyers. How many words such a post contains? To which email address should it be sent?

    2) About using social media – “All you need to do is share a link on our Facebook, Twitter, Google + or any other social media profile” – What does it mean? Should we post links to our PPH profile or PPH Hourlies? If Facebook for instance, where to share it? Just paste the links on your wall? Please elaborate further on this point. It isn’t clear.

    Hi Cornelius,

    When you have finished a particular job for a Buyer and they are satisfied with the work delivered raise your invoice (more info here: http://support.peopleperhour.com/hc/en-us/articles/205218287-Raising-an-invoice) to receive payment, which includes releasing any funds paid into Escrow. Once they have paid for your service, your Buyer will then be able to leave you the all important feedback.

  • ajay kumar

    I am amused to see your request for contributions to the PPH blog. I wrote a blog last year for the site which received a great deal of positive comments. I have emailed PPH directly to offer a further blog and have also filled out your submission form but have received no response. Would you welcome another piece? If so, could someone actually get in touch with me.

  • Kelly

    Starting out is slow, however for me I am starting to see the benefits to this great site. I am an administrator and my aim is to build regular clients and have a great customer portfolio.

    If your looking for some assistance, within your business just think what a spare 5 hours a week could do for you. Why not let me help, I can offer you some of my knowledge with over 18 years experience.

    I personally will be using some of these tips to get me noticed.

    Thanks again for your Support PPH

  • khalil

    Nice tips that help me lot. I am still waiting to win first job at PPH.

  • Irina Sztukowski

    Thank you for great hints.

    I will definitely follow your advice. Being a new person in a large pool of artists I think my particular skills as watercolor artist are quite narrow. Each time I search for job offers it seems I see only three that apply to my field. I still think it is a good thing as not many artists can paint in watercolor as I can. And I am surely glad that PPH allows to upload some of previous projects that give our potential clients opportunity to see the quality of the job that I provide.

    I am very excited to have a long and productive relationship with PPH.

    Many thanks!

    As a newbie to People per Hour, I really do appreciate blog posts like this Kelly. You covered several areas about how anyone can promote their profile, and it is written in such a simple yet informative way. So thank you, it was an extremely beneficial read for a newbie. I am already looking into how to get featured on the blog, but unfortunately, I keep getting distracted by the blog posts that have already been written.

    While the content has merits, it would be good not to see the repeated notice on my dashboard of “How to win more work on PPH”. Sounds like PPH is trying to a Dale Carnegie of ” How To Win Friends and Influence People”?

    PPH: I’ve seen the notice 200 times. I don’t need to see it again.

    ******* Good tips, however, apart from writing a blog article for you, everything else is fee -based. Thanks ****

  • Amar B

    I don’t know why PPH listing depends on money. Money never give us the stability in this platform. Client always prefer quality and also Stability. I think PPH need to think about this section and also we need Skill test similar to Upwork, Guru etc.

  • Jack Sparrow

    There re some naive PPH’ers here, who are probably STILL waiting for their first job, put paying again and again for proposal credits.

    Bottom line is that the vast majority of jobs don”t get awarded and just expire… without any proposal credits being returned.

    PPH have no reason to change their business model. Take out the unawarded jobs and this place would look pretty different…

    Don’t use PPH, they are fraud you invest your money here but no talent will done your work unless you loss your money and if you complain to PPH, they also ignore and let your money gone and rest they keep. Bloody rascal PPH and motherfucker as well.

    Don’t use here in PPH. It is far better to

    use http://www.appfutura.com, there talent are real with real place. Chat, call, meet, close deal and get your work done.

    But don’t use PPH bloody bastards.

    Thank you
    Guys for reading this and invest your quality time here….

    I think PPH’s goodwill will be increased day by day and buyer and seller and the site also be benefited. It’s a great hope for many freelancers. I wish its overall success.

  • Philip Tucker

    Surely the best way to be successful here is to work long and hard, complete as many jobs successfully as possible and achieve a great feedback rating? Well, I have done all of those things. I have spent 6 years breaking my back and bending over backwards working hard to be the best – I have sold over 1,600 + Hourlies and have a feedback rating of 98%, but unbelievably today my Hourly is ranked LOWER on the relevant search page than a bunch of newbie $10 Hourlies with only 10-20 sales history!! (Yes you read that right – 10-20 sales, compared with my 1,600+ sales). How in any sense of fairness is this possible? It needs fixing. If you punish your best, most accomplished workers by pushing them to the back, and put your newest least-experienced workers to the front, you will definitely have a bad business model, with massive negatives for PPH, for me as a Seller and definitely for the Buyer. I have brought this unfair system to PPH’s notice many times over many years, yet it continues without a fix. No other business in the world would promote itself, its staff and help its customers, by putting its best workers in the storeroom and putting its least experienced workers in front of the shop. Totally illogical and unfair.

  • Islam

    Thank you! I will certainly follow these tips.

  • Laura Gomez

    Hi guys!

    I think this site is better than anyone around since it keeps it simple and safe at the same time. You need to meet some criteria in order to render services as a freelancer but it worths the effort. I have been for a couple of years working through PPH and being inside the platform ensures continuous work if you know what you are doing.

    Why communication is key? One tip that can change everything πŸ™‚

    Communication is key when outsourcing since in most cases you are away from your project owner. Even the minimum detail when communicating (or not) can affect a project tremendously. You could sense this on any project no matter the nature of it. So everyday feedback on small work gives you a lot of advantage especially if you need one or two extra days to finish your project.

    I hope everybody can get great amount of work during 2018!

    Best wishes!
