Creating a successful Gig requires planning, creativity, and strategic thinking.
In this article, we'll discuss 4 particular areas to help you achieve these requirements.
Finding your niche
As a seller, your first assignment should be to break down your skillset into a small offering that makes sense to start selling at $5.
Ask yourselves these questions when you define exactly what your Gig will be:
- Does it take me a few (5 to 15 minutes) to complete this action?
- Is this service scalable? Can I deliver multiples of it in batches?
- Are there extra components that could be built into this initial service?
Research your skill
While researching, ask yourself:
- Are there any other versions of your Gig already? If so, how many?
- Can you distinguish yourself from other sellers? How?
- Is there an opportunity to meet an unmet need?
Know your value
Set your potential buyers' expectations and set the precedent that your work can’t be obtained for free. It’s essential to know your worth as a seller and not to compromise it to attempt to attract buyers.
Establish a workflow
To come up with an organized game plan, think about the different aspects of your process, such as:
- What time of day—or what time each week—will I dedicate to working on my Gigs?
- How can I set up a productive workspace?
- What materials do I need to work on my Gigs?
Taking the time to plan out your workflow will help keep things more organized and simple when you create your Gig.
