Share pages are an excellent way to bring buyers straight to freelancers, as you can post, share and email them around the web.

Once your share page is approved, it will also be listed on Globashare’s Marketplace.

• Make sure your image is the correct resolution (1200x800px for images or 1080p for video is ideal).

• Smiling faces attract attention.

• Make sure your image's subject matter matches your offering

• Use iconography to visually inform the buyer.

• Use attractive typography (fonts).

• Use bold type, isolated on plain backgrounds.

• Leave ample space or margins around each component, this makes your image easier to view and understand.

Creating Service Share Pages

How to set up the perfect Service Share Page on Globashare

Service Share Pages are an excellent way to bring buyers straight to freelancers, without the hard work of having to reach out with custom-made proposals.

On Globashare.com, Service Share Page offers have been the most popular way for buyers to get their work done.

Over 45% of service share page sales lead to larger follow-on work.


What is a Service Share Page offer?

Service Share Page offerings are small pre-packaged services. The scope of the service is defined by you the seller.


There are two ways of selling a service, by the “Hour” and by “Project”

A. When you offer a service by an hourly rate. When creating a service share page based on an hourly rate you will be asked to describe your offering in detail and set a price per hour at which you are prepared to offer this service. At the time of purchase, both you and the buyer will decide how many hours are required to complete their tasks and requirements.

Example I will test your website for bugs at $8 per hour


B. A Project based Service Share Page is an express service that you will deliver based on a set of pre-defined deliverables you have specified in your share page’s description.

Example I will design and code a basic one page Wordpress website for your business. With the following specifications.


Creating a great service offering that will attract buyers

1. Before you start, analyse your competition and market trends

Before you start creating a Service Share Page, it is a must to checkout your competition. Figure out what the most successful offerings have in common, so you can make sure you also hit these sweet spots.

Checkout if you find a new or trending niche within your skill-set with few offers, it could be an opportunity that will attract sales


2. Create a clear and concise Share Page title

When creating a title for your Service Share Page, it is important to think about the search terms buyers will be using trying to find your service. The closer your title is to a buyer’s search term the better and the more likely your offering will stand out. But note, keep it simple, don’t overdo it, you can also add more key search terms in your description.

Example: I will Manage your Social Media Page for One Week to Increase Exposure


3. Upload relevant, eye-catching images or video as your Share Page Cover

Create a share page image or video that grabs attention. Make sure it is off sufficient quality (1200x800px for images or 1080p for video is ideal).

Staying relevant - If your offering is about voiceovers, use an image of a microphone. If your offering is about WordPress, include the WordPress logo. By using iconography to represent your skills, the buyer can quickly spot your profile.

Stay simple - Try and use as few visual components as possible. For example, either a logo, object, or face, a background and some text.

Be clear and show quality - Try and create a clear high-quality image, this will reflect on your perceived quality of offering. Don’t clutter or use an over busy image or video.


Hot Tip If you are planning to create more than one share page in your niche, do not use exactly the same image. This will confuse your buyers. However, if you want your share pages to be alike, brand one part of the image or video with a corner graphic.


4. Keep your description as detailed as possible

It is very important to keep your service offering as detailed, attractive and as clear as possible.

What will be the maximum number of words you will write? Or how many web pages will you deliver? Does your offering include the source files or not?

A common mistake is not stating exactly how long a video will be, how many seconds an animation will last, or number of revisions you will offer your buyer.

It’s important to be as clear as possible on what is exactly included in your initial offering. Lack of detail will be leaving room for your client to take advantage of your offering.

Standing out: Outline what makes your service special. Explain why your service is different to other freelancers that are offering similar services. Use your description to highlight the benefits you offer the buyer, and how you will achieve this. With a great description, you’re more than half way to creating great opportunity ahead.

Hot Tip: Always, always proofread your descriptions, spelling mistakes will weaken your perceived professionalism.


5. Be clear on your pricing

With Service Share Pages, your offer price is your “starting price”. From your page’s description you should describe in detail exactly what you will be offering at this price. Your offering should limit what the buyer will get from you at this starting price.

This will encourage buyers to ask for additional requirements beyond your share pages offering, allowing you to negotiate any upgrades to a job, giving you reason to “customise” your offer, by clicking the “Custom Job Proposal” button. Here you can upgrade your price and your offers details.

Don’t start your initial price too high

To make your Service Share Pages attractive to buyers, create several of them offering different levels of benefits at different price points.

For example create an express job at a low price. A slightly upgraded offering at a medium price and a pro offering at high price

Example: I will create a one page WordPress website for you.

With this example you can offer a low price. If the user then wants to add pages you can then Customise the Job, allowing you to reprice your offer.

How to engage your buyer at time of purchase

When you receive a purchase request, your buyer will submit details about their requirements and preferences through Globashare’s messaging system.

At this point you will:

Verify if the buyer’s requirements fall within your ability to deliver the project successfully. Never enter in to a project not knowing if you will be able to complete the project.

Check to see if the buyer’s requirements fall within the scope of your share page’s description.

Negotiate an expected project delivery date and specify exactly what files you will be delivering.

If you find the client is expecting more than what you have outlined in your share page’s description. You may upgrade the job by clicking the Customise Job button to state new deliverables and re-price the offering.

Once you are satisfied with all of the above you may click the “Accept Job” button prompting the seller to pre-fund the job.


Delivering your project

Once you have delivered the job and the client has expressed satisfaction with your work, you may click the “Job Completed” button prompting the seller to release your payment to your account.

Always give yourself ample time to deliver your project. Never accept a job that is beyond your means. Failing to deliver jobs “as promised” will greatly diminish your work reputation.

It is always better to deliver your project slightly above buyer expectations.

Should you have any difficulty in delivering a project because of an emergency, notify your buyer as soon as possible.

Always discuss any issues you may face with the buyer openly before embarking on any work project.





Creating a Description for your share page

When creating a shop window on Globashare, you create what’s called a Share Page for each offering you want to sell. Share pages are an excellent way to bring buyers straight to freelancers, as you can post, share and email them around the web. To create many offerings, you will need to create a share page for each offering.


When creating an offering on Globashare, you may sell in the following ways:

  • Products - Sell computer files, media and assets at a fixed price
  • Services - Sell a service, as described by you on your share page
  • Subscriptions - Sell content delivered in a news feed for a monthly fee
  • Whichever one you choose, you will need to define them with a good description.


    It is important to note, an item or service without a detailed description, will have difficulty convincing buyers of its worth, and this will lead to poor sales.


    To describe a commercially successful offering you will need to outline all or some of the following attributes:

    A: Value - What is the monetary, time saving or information of value, you are providing

    B: Reward - What financial, satisfying or entertainment value, you are providing,

    C: Solves a problem - How does your offering solve a problem


    Hot tip: Before you start creating an offering, it is a must to check out competition for your offering. Figure out what the most successful offerings have in common, so you can make sure you also hit these sweet spots. Also exploit skill gaps. Checkout if you find a niche within your skill-set with few offerings, it could be an opportunity.


    Getting started

    There are many ways you can create amazing product descriptions. Here we are using two frameworks that allow us to create effective product descriptions by following their simple steps


    Framework 1.


    What Start by describing exactly what it is you are offering.

    How How did you create or will you create your offering? Add detailed specifications of your offering

    Why What is the reward, value or problem-solving you get from your offering. Explain why your service is different to other similar services.


    Framework 2.

    Problem State the problem in the market for issues buyer’s face

    Solution State what the ideal solution should be. Explain why other solutions are inferior.

    Celebration State that by buying your offering what reward, benefits or value your buyers will receive. Add detailed specifications


    Hot Tip: Always, proofread your descriptions, spelling mistakes will weaken your perceived professionalism


    Adding specifications and attributes

    Examples of technical specifications

    • What will be the estimated total time required to complete your job

    • Quantities - How many units are you offering (example number of designs)

    • Software or media used

    • Parameters

    • What sizes/dimensions are you using?

    • Duration (animation or audio length)

    • What formats are you offering

    • Resolutions you are providing

    • Number of cast members, voices

    • Number of Colors

    • Polygons

    • Etc, etc.

    • What are the milestones or phases that you will share with your buyer as delivery of your job progresses
    • How many client amendments you will make to your job before the job must be marked complete (For Service Share Pages)
    • Whether you will include all of the working source files as part of the job
    • You may want to include some visual references that can be used as a quality reference

    Hot tip: Get a second opinion to see if you have missed some specifications. You can never include enough detail. Details give greater confidence to the buyer of your commitment to delivering your work. This will increase the chance of you being picked for a job.


    Protecting yourself

    The attributes of your description will also define your product or service, in-case of dispute or refund request.

    So it is a must that your description details your offering, without over or under-promising your product or service.

    It is crucial to detail all that you can about your offering, so that buyer knows exactly what they are getting at the time of purchase, no more or no less.

    Hiring a freelancer, detailed guide

    The Freelance Section of Globashare is based on a Milestone system.

    This is where the buyer and seller agree to accomplish a "work brief" based on a pre-arranged number of millstones, each tied to payment.

    Both the number of "milestones" and payment amounts are decided by the buyer and sellers


    Example:

    Milestone 1 - Draft Version -$100

    Milestone 2 - Finished job -$100

    Milestone 3 - Final Version -$100

    Total $300


    To get started click "Hire Top Freelancers" on the freelancing tile found on the marketplace home page, then post your job details on the subsequent page.


    Once you job has been submitted, it will reviewed by the Globashare team before being made available on the website's Freelance Centre.


    Expect to receives quotes, of which you can review, message and shortlist the appropriate candidates . Click hire once you are satisfied you have found a freelancer that suits your requirements.


    Once you have hired a freelancer - you will be prompted to login to the "Job's Work Space".


    In the Job's Work Space, you will negotiate an agreement, based on the initial offer. Here you should, in as much detail as possible, highlight the required work. You should assign the tasks required to complete the job to as many milestones as you require, together with corresponding payments.


    A good example for a small freelance job with a budget of $300 - would be x 3 milestones, each milestone linked to a $100 payment


    Example:

    Milestone 1 - Draft Version -$100

    Milestone 2 - Finished job -$100

    Milestone 3 - Final Version -$100

    Total $300


    Reviewing submissions and approving milestones

    Once the Buyer and the Seller have agreed and acknowledged their Job Agreement, the job begins and the freelancer can begin the work. The freelancer should follow the tasks laid out in your agreement and once you have completed your milestone, upload or submit the work to you for your review. Buyers may request revisions, before accepting a submission. Once a you are satisfied they you accept the work by releasing the funds for the milestone and move on to fund the next milestone, so that you may continue the job.


    This sequence will continue until the job is completed, upon which the you will review the freelancers work and assign them a rating.


    Disputes

    Both the buyers and the sellers have the right to raise a dispute against each other. Raising a dispute will notify Globashare's administrators. If the dispute is legitimate, Globashare will prompt both parties to move to a self-resolution panel. I both parties are unable to self-resolve their dispute – then either party may elect to proceed to Globashare Arbitration.

    Creating freelance milestone job agreements

    Introduction: What is an agreement?

  • It is a promise between a buyer and seller that defines a ”Job to be done”.
  • A detailed and accurate Agreement guides both the buyer and seller, and leads to successfully completed jobs, quickly.
  • You can never include enough detail in your agreement. Details give greater confidence to the buyer of your commitment in delivering their work.
  • Your agreement is also used as a reference in-case of a dispute between buyer and seller. Your agreement will be used to see who is at fault.
  • Why are they important

  • They are crucial guides to successful delivery of projects
  • This leads to on-going, trusted and reliable work relationships
  • This leads to more work in the future and referrals

  • Hot Tip: As tempting as it is, never start a project with a buyer without first creating and agreeing on a “detailed” agreement. Failure to do so will increase the chance of your project entering into dispute.


    Hot Tip: Never take too long to come to an agreement with your buyer. Delaying agreements leads to the chance your buyer receiving other offers and may decide to work with someone else.


    Creating a Freelance Milestone agreement when freelancing on Globashare

    Freelance Milestone agreements are used for large complex jobs. Which may include multiple phases. Phases we call milestones.

    Each phase or milestone represents a set of “tasks” or “work progress” that must be completed by a you before you can begin the next milestone.

    Freelance Milestones are linked to payments, once a milestone is completed, funds are released to you, the supplier

    You would use a milestone agreement in these examples:

  • Complex websites
  • Mobile application development
  • Animation projects
  • Music and mastering
  • Consulting and professional services

  • Why use milestone agreements?

    Because buyers are expecting from you the following:

  • For the seller to deliver their work on time (each milestone will have a delivery date)
  • To be sure that you the seller will deliver the quality of work promised at each stage of the job
  • To ensure reliability of the seller (That the seller conforms to their agreement)
  • Only upon completion of each milestone will the buyer “release payment” to you, the seller.
  • A milestone agreement divides up work in to “milestones” that should be completed before another milestone starts.


    The basics of your freelance milestone agreement

    Usually, the buyer of a freelance job will be the initial author of a freelance agreement. However, it is necessary for the seller to make sure their agreement is a “strong one”.


    Step 1

    To start make sure your agreement describes the job as a whole, in as much detail as possible. Your description should detail how you will achieve your job, and what tasks must be completed.

    You must also list all of the specifications of your job. See examples below

    Examples of technical specifications

  • Quantity - How many units are you offering
  • Software or media used
  • Parameters and attributes
  • • What sizes/dimensions are you using?

    • Duration (animation or audio length, this should not be left to guessing)

    • What formats are you offering

    • What Resolutions you are providing

    • Number of cast members, voices

    • Number of Colors

    • Etc, etc.

  • What will be the estimated total time required to complete your job
  • Whether you will include all of the source files
  • You may want to include some visual references that can be used as a quality reference

  • Hot tip: Get a second opinion to see if you have missed some specifications. You can never include enough detail. Details give greater confidence to the buyer of your commitment to delivering their work. This will increase the chance of you being picked for a job. The attributes of your agreement will define the “job to be done”. Not more or not less. Any more or less “specifications” must be considered a lesser or bigger job and you will need a new agreement.

    Hot tip: Never over-promise in an agreement, even though you may be tempted to win a job. This may lead to a dispute.

    Dividing the work into milestones

    Once you have finished describing and detailing the specifications of your job, you must now divide your job into milestones.


    You will assign to each milestone


  • A delivery date (flexible or fixed)
  • A payment to be receive upon completion of each milestone.

  • You will need to decide how many milestones you will need:


    Two milestones are adequate for simpler jobs.

    Example job: Design and Develop a WordPress website - $1200

  • Milestone 1 Deliver the draft website - $600
  • Milestone 2 Website goes live after client approval - $600

  • Three milestones or more are required for more complex work or when design is part of the approval process.

    Example job: App design and development - $1200

  • Milestone 1 App design submitted and approved - $600
  • Milestone 2 Draft working version of the App - $600
  • Milestone 3 Live working version of the App - $600
  • Milestone 4 60 Days for QA testing from go-live date - $600

  • Practical Example Freelance milestone agreements
