Write up a high quality service page
A lot of people write up a basic service page and don't think anything of it. You'll need to write up your service page so it pitches your service and makes people want to purchase from you before they even contact you. I've written up plenty of service pages for people here on SEOclerks and they all have said their sales have increased because of it.

  1. You need to add quality images: You can use an image you made in MS paint and expect someone to see you as an authority in the field. You need to use Photoshop, or something similar, in order to get some great images developed. Since you're a designer/developer it shouldn't be too difficult for you to do something like this
  2. You need to add some reviews: What I like to recommend to sellers is to screenshot their positive reviews and then add those reviews to their service page, even though the reviews can be seen at the bottom of the page. You need to get the positive words of others in front of the visitors as quick as possible, you can't expect them to scroll to the bottom to read anything positive.
  3. Format your service page: A lot of sellers will just add a wall of text and complain they don't have any sales. This is because no one wants to read 3 run on paragraphs that are all merged together. If you format your content correctly, it will pull people down the page and they will read everything more often than if it was a big wall of text.

Optimize your service page
Many people actually pass on this because they don't think of it. Your service page is going to turn up on the major search engines, so you need to be optimizing it as well as you can in order to increase the chances of pulling them in and making a sale. There is also an internal search system on SEOclerks that you can optimize for, which shouldn't be overlooked because it's used all of the time I want to increase sales

Advertise your service
You can actually advertise your services here on SEOclerks. You can do a homepage feature or a category feature in order to increase your sales. A homepage feature obviously costs more because you will be on the homepage all the time and a category feature is much less because you won't be seen as often. Both of these work extremely well at increasing your sales and should be looked into. Bumping your service will help increase your sales, but it's not going to be stuck at the top of your category or on the homepage, so you're better off investing your money in a service that keeps you at the top.

Over deliver your services
One big thing that I always tell people to do is over deliver their services! So many people just do the bare minimum and that's never a good way to run your business. I sell a content writing service and everyone who purchases a 500 word article always gets a minimum of 750 words I want to increase sales They think they're getting a high quality 500 word article and they open up the file to see a massive amount of content, which makes them super happy and they usually come back for more work. Some of my article writing purchases were for 500 words and I sent back 1500 I want to increase sales Imagine how happy that client was lol.



If you follow what I said above, you'll likely increase your sales more than what you are doing now. It doesn't take long to do all of this, you can probably do it in 30 minutes or less, and it's worth every second invested into it. I know, you're not making money when you edit your own services, but you will increase your sales overall because of it I want to increase sales

This is all wonderful advice! I think everyone here can learn a thing or two from this, because it can apply to so many other services as well and not just SEOClerks.

That being said, I do have one question though. I understand the concept of over delivering on your services, and I can see how certain customers would be ecstatic with getting more than they bargained for.

With that in mind, has this strategy ever backfired? Knowing the nature of freelancing and working with a variety of clients, I know that there are people out there who want to receive exactly what they expected, and will chew you out for both falling short of and exceeding expectations. Have you ever had an experience like that?

Over-delivering can be great but I would be careful if you are doing it all the time. If someone is ordering 500-word essays and getting 1200 words, they will expect that all the time and so will all your other customers. So you are basically selling a much more expensive service at the price of a 500-word essay service. You're losing out. And if you don't have time and decide to only do the 500 words, they will leave a bad rating because they expected more.

Wow! What a nice reply. I all agree with you. You really need to do your best in everything so that your sales will increase. Advertisements and promotions is badly needed.

Beside Razzy's great and long input here i would also advice for at list some time to offer discount coupons and higher affiliate commissions on your services, then also contact some great affiliate marketers from Seoclerks to promote your services via their affiliate pages. Finding active and popular affiliates is not hard task to do, just click on Community > Professionals then filter it by Level. Every seller with Level 4, 5 or Level X4, X5 is for sure good affiliate marketer to promote your service(s).
It's just another way to spread word about your services and increase sales!

There is one way to increase sales and that's by making amazing post about what you offer. Also, check out in the WTB for those buyers that will be ready to buy your services as well. If you're starting, it might not be busy, but with time, things will settle for the better.

I also agree with your response. You can have quality services but still making fewer sales because there are no interested parties where you are advertising your skills.

You need to put your skills on a site where what you offer is in high demand and you will be assured of high sales.

The prices offered at WTB are very ridiculous. I don't think that will work for me.

Making sales here will depend on your advertising power, try to draw more traffic people to your service page through radical advertisement When you're contacted for a job try to give the very best of your service and instruct your client to leave a good feedback or review about your services.See how you can increase your level especially if you're at level 1 because your level can also help increase your sales level.Bump your services every now and then.

I think promotion is the key. Be it any marketplace. Increasing sales requires you promoting your product on regular basis. And you making sure that you're not wasting the money in wrong places. So it all depends on how you're choosing the options. Some of the places like facebook groups and pages are good places.

This! You should try and promote your offers/services on SEOClerk via social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and others. If you already have a profile set up then great, others simply make one and start promoting yourself - attract people over here and you will notice an increase in your sales. Make them aware of what you're offering.

I think the best way to do this is to know the needs of your potential consumers. You have to try to know them better and see in what your work may be useful to them (you won't fit into all the niches). It may take a while for you to do this, but it will be worth it.

That part comes in during you create the gig. But if you have already created the gig then you can't think of this point. Instead you have to think in terms of the discussion. That being said, increasing sales is something we have to consider as well. I think if one works hard enough then that can be something to consider as well.

You will increase sales provided you can do all that needs to be done with the best of actions. First, you must have a personal brand whether you are promoting self products or products owned by other people. Your personal brand represents your personal website which is exactly like your shop front. It represents your internet shop or office address and must be well branded.

Having branded a personal website, it's high time you started building traffic and that is a very simple process to achieve. You just need to write good contents, that is, keyword-rich contents.

Good quality content is one of the main aspects to be seen above others (it should be seen as a golden rule), but I think this is just the tip of the iceberg (a very important one, of course) because there are more things involved in the process.

I have been on SEO clerk for many months and I recently completed my first job here. After listing my service, I promoted it on various social media platform. I got views on my listing, there were even inquiries, but no one bought my service until recently.
In my opinion what matters is pricing. If you price your service lower than your competitor, you will find easier to convince the clients.

It looks like you are not doing a marketing campaign for your business because the way you sound seems to be on a helpless situation. One good marketing campaign if by posting your products in social media. Of course, you need to have a dynamic account in Facebook or Twitter before you can do your marketing in social media. Posting 2 or 3 times a week about your products will have a good chance of increasing your sales.
