How do I increase the dollar value on my gig?

Recommended Posts

Break it into pieces and let the buyer choose how much of the “complete” product he or she really wants. For example, maybe you’re a graphic designer, so you could break down your gig like this:

  • Black line-art (bust only)
  • Black line-art (full body)
  • Color
  • Background
  • Add custom text

And so on. This is just what I could imagine off the top of my head, but there are other examples. My own gigs, for example - most of them I can’t scale down the level of quality, so I scale the quantity instead: I sell in 5, 10, and 15 minute increments for my time-based gigs, and 250, 500, and 750 word increments for my written work, etc. Or my creative writing gig: starts at 500 words, but I offer to increase another 500 words, add more characters, etc.

In this way - breaking your gig into its individual components and selling it a la carte - you can push gig extras and earn a higher income.
