A quality offer demonstrates to the task Poster that you are a serious and reliable Tasker who is willing to put in the effort to complete the task to their satisfaction. By taking the time to carefully consider the requirements of the task and tailor your offer accordingly, you are showing the poster that you are a good fit for the job and can be trusted to complete it effectively. You have one chance to make a great first impression - so follow these tips for your offer to stand out from the crowd.
Make sure you are always concise, clear and helpful!
To Get Started:
- Address the Poster by their name, and tailor your offer to them
- Always use proper grammar and spelling, full sentences and respectful language
- Ask necessary questions to make sure the task is a good fit for you
- Write out a thoughtful and well-considered offer
- Share your qualifications and why you’re a good fit for the task
Pro Tips to Seal the Deal:
- Use the power of persuasion to write out an offer that’s compelling!
- Show off your skills! Fill out your profile with all of your skills, experience, and photos of your work to build credibility with potential customers.
- More = better. Not all tasks get assigned. The more offers you make, the more likely you are to be assigned to a Task.
- Act fast! The faster you are to make an offer, the more likely you are to catch the customer while the task is still top of their mind.
