How to Use Social Media to Promote Your Freelance Business


Recommended Posts

Harnessing the potential of social media can greatly benefit your Fiverr freelance business by showcasing expertise, connecting you with potential clients, and driving sales. To get the most of your efforts on social media, you’ll need to take a strategic and consistent approach. Here are our key tips for leveraging social media effectively to promote your freelance services.

Establish a Strong Online Presence
Treat your online presence as your virtual business card, prioritizing professionalism while highlighting your expertise and personality. Use a high-quality profile picture and craft a compelling bio highlighting your services. To ensure easy recognition try to maintain consistency in your username and branding across all platforms. 

Showcase Visuals
Go beyond telling potential clients about your skills–show them! Think of creative ways to share visual examples whether it’s with images, graphics or videos. Highlight your best projects and successes, and consider sharing case studies or success stories. Before-and-afters, behind-the-scenes, and other project highlights are also other great content ideas for showing your audience what you do.

Engage and Network
Engaging with your audience is crucial. Respond to comments and messages, join discussions with others in your niche, and provide valuable insights to build meaningful connections. These interactions not only humanize your brand but also demonstrate your dedication to providing top-notch service. 

Provide Value Beyond Promotion
Avoid the pitfall of solely posting to promote your services. Offer valuable content to your audience, such as tips, industry news, or educational material presented in an engaging manner. This not only establishes your authority but can also attract new followers who may convert into clients over time.

Utilize Hashtags and Keywords
Expand your reach by using relevant hashtags and keywords. Research industry-specific terms and trending hashtags to ensure your content reaches the right audience. Incorporate these strategically to increase visibility and attract potential clients actively seeking your services.

Tailor Content for Different Platforms
Understand the unique characteristics and audience preferences of each social media platform. Tailor your approach accordingly, considering factors like LinkedIn's professional audience or Instagram's visual appeal. Adapting to each platform's nuances enhances engagement and widens your reach.

Social media can significantly enhance your freelance business. By following these tips, you can make sure your time on the platforms pays off by attracting more potential clients and increasing your sales.

I want to highlight this advice because depending on how it's done, it CAN be great... or dangerous.

If we're talking about projects in general (so not necessarily on Fiverr) or projects that we are explicitly allowed to share, it's all good.

BUT when it comes to projects strictly via Fiverr (especially in the case of wanting to do behind-the-scenes infos/etc.) aren't we technically forbidden to disclose information about what we've done (unless the buyer permits us?) From what I remember in the TOS, Fiverr is quite strict about anonymity and keeping our clients' work (even what we have done for them) safe. 

If I were to post a puzzle I've made for a new escape room (or something) on my social media, wouldn't that be quite risky? What if the room isn't out yet? What if the 'before and after' I shared allows others to steal the idea that doesn't even belong to me (anymore)? 

Of course, again, this depends on what you're sharing and how, but I think it's important to think about whether our buyers would want us to share their things (or not.) 

I know I'm quite paranoid, but I wouldn't be happy if someone shared what they've made for me (on Fiverr or somewhere else) without my permission. It depends on the project of course, but still...

You forgot the "don't use AI to spam" instruction!

Have you seen how Fiverr sellers promote their gigs on social media? 

Touché! The only result spamming ever gets anyone is getting blocked.🙊

Hey @katakatica! That's a great point that all sellers should keep in mind when building their portfolio, regardless of where the work comes from. As a best practice, I think it's always a wise idea to check in with your customers to see where they stand about you sharing details about their projects.

While this isn't a bad strategy per se, it should be coupled with several of the other tips mentioned above if you want to get the best results! Doing these things alone may be seen as spam to many and can have adverse effects. Also, concerning hashtags, each platform has a recommended amount of hashtags to use. More isn't always better when it comes to hashtags so it's important to follow the best practices of the platform you are using.

It´s a good one! Posting content about your gigs 3-5/day on your socials can work. But this requires some time and strategy. Gary Vee is a good example, he just sat for years posting daily a videos on YouTube with his wine library tv and no one was paying attention to him and then suddenly he got noticed. And still this wasn´t an overnight success. So you have to love your gigs a lot and find your tribe that gets inspired by you & your work. Goodluck.
