So, you’ve registered on Nabbesh and input your skills and you’re ready to start freelancing, now what?
The first tip is to input a description for each skill you enter. Think about if you were looking for a freelancer, you’d want some more details about their background.
Here’s an example of a very basic profile:
If you input a description however, you end up with this:
As you can see, this description gives more detail about the particular skill and lets employers know exactly what areas the person has expertise in.
But that’s not all. The most successful freelancers are able to give examples of their skills in action, and this makes it even easier for employers to choose them. Seeing is believing! We’ve enabled you to link to your work anywhere around the web, whether it be on Behance, DeviantArt, Vimeo, Youtube, Tumblr, Pinterest, Github, SoundCloud and many many more formats.
All you need to do is open your profile and select “Add” this will bring up the toolbox:
The last 5 tabs will allow you to link to work elsewhere. Simply put in the relevant URL, the description will populate automatically, if you want to change that you can, and most importantly, whatever you choose can be linked to your skills.
So if you’ve put in Graphic Design as a skill when building your profile, and you link to a piece of work on DeviantArt, you will be able to select “graphic design” from the Link Skills box.
After you’ve done that, your profile might look something like this:
The more you put into Nabbesh, the more you get out. Nearly all employers ask for evidence of previous work. Spending some time on your profile at the beginning will shorten the decision making process for employers and reduce the time spent going back and forward, meaning you can start earning quicker. Additionally you can generate ratings and feedback from our Owlsome buttons and the social sharing.
We built this to enable even quicker connections and transactions. We want to reduce the time it takes to find and discover talent, and let you focus on doing what you do best. When you freelance, your online profile is your calling card, so make sure its the best it can be!
