Promoting your freelance services does not have to be difficult: Stef Armstrong
Promoting your freelance services doesn’t have to be difficult. This guide has been prepared AnyTask.com Social Media Manager, Stef Armstrong, to give you some examples of how you can advertise your services online for free.
If you’re not using one of the most extensive and, most importantly, free forms of advertising out there, then you’ve got to start now, said Mr. Armstrong. Social media has the potential for shared content to reach millions of people worldwide.
The first thing is to set up social media pages, that is, of course, if you haven’t done that yet. He recommends sticking to the three most prominent social networks, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. However, TikTok and YouTube are also great platforms.
So, once those social media accounts have been set up, it’s time to start sharing. Logically, getting followers is the first step. That’s done by using relevant hashtags. For example, those who offer logo design will use #logo, #logodesign, and so on. Please visit Hashtagify.me or best-hashtags.com for more options. It is also good to Google them to find others that work.
Comments on relevant social media posts
Another great way to start creating a network is by commenting on other people’s statuses and posts. Finding topical and relevant social media groups is essential, too, as those are places where links to Tasks can be shared.
The no-brainer is when someone asks for a logo or for reference to who can create that logo for them. Yes, that’s the perfect place to offer that Task to that person.
Video content works best!
Stef Armstrong has tremendous experience creating YouTube videos, so he is more than likely right when he says these work best.
“So, if you can create little videos of you doing your Task to showcase your skills, then that will work better than using still images,” he said. “Remember, using social media to share Tasks is all about showcasing you and your talent and making people want to buy from you.”
“Using the same logo designer example again, you could upload a ‘how to video’ to your YouTube channel showing how you personally would go about designing a new logo,” said Stef. “That gives potential clients an idea of the types of skills you have, and also gives people the opportunity to click on your Task link if you put it down in the description of your video.”
Stef said AnyTask.com freelancers could upload videos to their AnyTask.com Task page to showcase their skills there as well. “So, why not kill two birds with one stone? You have a nice video for YouTube for people to search, and you have a nice video for your Task page.”
Taking the video tip a bit further
Stef recommends taking the YouTube video uploading idea even further by creating topical content around logo design. So, for example, he added, “once your ‘how to video’ is done, you could think about other aspects of logo design to further showcase your logo design knowledge. And to educate your viewers on logo design. This will give you more opportunities for your Task link to be clicked. You could make a video called “Top Five Logo Design Trends In 2021” or make something a bit more niche like ‘How To Create A Minimalist Logo Design.’
Remember, YouTube allows users to tag their videos with relevant keywords, so one must make sure to do the research first to the best keywords. There are free tools available for that, such as VidIQ or Google Tag Manager.
And how about Quora?
Another great way to promote Tasks is using Quora. As many already know, Quora is a website where individuals ask questions to the other members who answer those queries. A lot of people use this website to find answers to their questions. In fact, according to Similar web, Quora has about 514 million visits a month. So, why not take advantage of that as an AnyTask.com Seller to get some of that website traffic over to their
