Listen good ’cause you’re gonna love this:
In the coming days we will be introducing two new awesome features: subcategories and category search. This means that the existing categories will have a much better structure. For buyers – you will find the services you are interested in a lot quicker and easier. For sellers – you will be able to list your gigs in a much more relevant classification instead of just broad categories.
The new search will support the ability to search the entire site, a specific category or a subcategory. This will improve the user experience significantly.
So, if you are a seller, here’s how it works:
Go to your ‘My Gigs’ page and edit each of your gigs to assign them in the right subcategory. For example; put your logo design gig in the subcategory ‘Logo Design’ under the category ‘Graphics’.
We recommend that you do this as soon as possible because we will be opening the subcategories feature in a matter of days.
“Yeah, but what if I don’t…?” you ask. Well, your gigs will still be there, but they will only appear if someone clicked on the parent category. Your gigs will also have a much lower rank in search results and will not appear when buyers search in subcategories. In other words, not assigning your gigs to the right subcategory will hurt your chances of being found by potential buyers.
So what are you waiting for? Get ready to see your gigs thrive.
