Make your gig stand out

Freelancers on YoungOnes have a wide range of clients and gigs to choose from. Finding freelancers can be competitive, and it’s important to stand out from the crowd.  Here are six easy ways to get more eyes on your gig.

Start with a catchy title

The title is one of the first things a freelancer sees when scanning through gigs. Choose a title that specifically states what you’re looking for, whether it’s a one-time gig or a longer-term opportunity. Including the company name in the title can also help freelancers know where they’ll be working right away.

Introduce your company

Writing a brief introduction helps sell your company. Include your industry, and try to communicate . It’s also worth highlighting what makes your company appealing to freelancers. Opportunities to learn new skills? Jaw-dropping location? Let freelancers know.

Describe what you need

Clearly outline the requirements that are part of the gig. Use bullet points or short sentences to make it easy for freelancers to scan through and quickly understand the requirements.
