Perfecting your Gig Description-How to get more applicants for your gigs



What makes a good Gig description
  • Positive tone
  • Detailed
  • Transparent (5km radius/payment breakdown/ perks – free tea & coffee)
      • Gig Description

Versus a non descriptive style example show below

  • No detail shared
  • Spelling errors
  • No personality or feel for your brand
  • No detail to let Freelancer know what the Gig entails

  1. Details – Tell them as much as you can about the gig. Do you have any special requirements (is there a dress code/will they be wearing branded clothing?) Do you have a maximum radius for deliveries? If this is exceeded, will the driver get an extra payment?
  2. Transparency – Tell the Freelancers exactly what type of work you’re offering. Will they be driving only? Will they be asked to help with other tasks? Building pizza boxes, adding your branded stickers to your packaging?
  3. Money isn’t everything – Offering added incentives for drivers will make a big difference to them when working for you. Food offers – complimentary or subsidised meals or refreshments – tea// coffee/ soft drinks while on shift. Extra payment for a long distance delivery (over the delivery radius) will definitely help entice them to come back. Add any offers like this to your gig description.
    Let people know that good performance can lead to regular work.
  4. Show some personality – Make people want to work for you. Let them know that the work will be enjoyable, that there’ll be a good working atmosphere on-site.
