If you’ve been thinking of becoming a seller on Screwit, then there are certain things you can do to stand out on the platform and quickly start making money. In this article, we’re going to share with you the tactics many tradesmen have used to make a decent amount of money each and every month.
Video Is King
One of the first things you need to do is to ensure all of your Jobs have a great looking and descriptive Job video. Screwit touts that Jobs with Video convert almost 300 percent better than those without a video. If you are not a great videographer and don’t know where to start, chat to the team at Screwit or log a query through our support portal.
Upload High-Quality Images
Another thing you can do to make your Jobs stand out, to ensure the Job image is high quality and is relative to what your Job is about.
Many tradesmen use a site called Graphic Stock to get their images for their jobs. We would also recommend progress photos, which are images showing the before, during and after result of the work you’ve done. This helps build trust with buyers, showcasing your skills and drive more sales.
For your profile picture, use a real photo. People need to know that they are working with a real person. One advantage of this is your potential buyer can get to know you a little bit better via your picture. Avoid using avatars or cartoon image unless the service you’re offering is related to design and the profile Pic is a piece of your sample work.
Delivery in a Day
There are two trains of thought with this one, in the beginning of your Screwit seller career it’s good practice to set your delivery time at one day. Obvisously if it the job cannot be completed in one day, you then should put the minimum days that you will require. This allows your job to stand out, and it puts you in the category of express delivery when buyers are sorting by delivery time. Once you are an established seller on Screwit, it might be smart to set your delivery time to 2-3 days and then offer a Job extra to provide express delivery, allowing you to make more money per sale.
Buyers always will prefer a fast delivery of their requests. With that being said, the first thing they will search for is sellers who have good reputations and deliver quickly.
