It's been a while Toogit launched one of the best freelancing feature yet - Auto-proposals. It has raised several eyebrows since it's launch. While many have already reaped benefits out of it others are alread making their minds to try the one of the newest approach to freelancing.
In this blog we will cover how to use auto-proposal effectively and win more jobs using this.
Review and personalize proposals
Auto-proposals are submitted on a job which matches your skill set and minimum budget as soon as a job is posted. You also get an email notification about the same. However, most of the freelancers who have auto-proposal enabled forget one very important thing. They forget to personalize the proposal.
As soon as you get the email notification, you should login and review the job post. After that it's important to personlize the proposal, Modify the proposal to explain why you think you are the right fit for requirement. Also, adjust the bid amount as you see fit.
Auto-proposal gives you an opportunity to be notified about as soon as your profile matches with a job. This also conveys to client that your profile is a verified and trusted profile with Toogit. Since you spent money on enabling auto-proposal client also understands that you are actively looking for job and hence will look at your proposal seriously.
Tell them your availability
Clients who accept to receive auto-proposals on their jobs, are in urgent need of freelancers to fix something or they are looking to start their next big thing as soon as possible. Hence, it's important to tell the clients about your availability in your proposal. Like you can be available on "Friday, 15th Dec 2017 at 6:00 PM" for detailed discussion. You also need to make sure that you login and check your messages on Toogit at that time without fail.
Be attentive to additional questions
Many Toogit clients will ask you to answer one or more Additional Questions during the proposal stage. Auto-proposal doesn't submit answers to those questions on your behalf. For that you need to login and see if client has asked any additional questions.
Be attentive to additional questions and answer them as soon as you get auto-proposal submission notification.
A quality profile and thoughtful proposals are a winning formula for Toogit.
