Become A Featured Pro

We’ve got some exciting news. Very soon we’ll be launching an exciting update to our directory pages to include Featured Pros.

“What does that mean?” we hear you cry. Well, basically we’ll be giving extra visibility to some of the best professionals on Bark – and you could be one of them!

As a Featured Pro, we’ll show your profile on the directory page for the service(s) that you offer. This will increase your visibility on Bark and improve your chances of getting hired.

How will we choose who to feature?
We want to show the best professionals. We’ll do this by choosing the most complete profiles, with a particular focus on your company description, review score and Q&A answers.

Providing thorough information helps potential customers understand what you have to offer, and hopefully decide to hire you for the job.

Ensure these key areas of your profile are completed to improve your chances of becoming featured and increase your hire rate by 60%.

1. Write a winning Q&A
2. Complete your Company Description
3. Achieve a great review score

There’s more detailed information below on how best to complete these.

Writing a winning Q&A

Your Q&A allows your potential customers to find out more about you and your business.

Professionals who have compelted their Q&As are almost 2x more likely to get hired over those who have not.

1) Consider your answers
Take a moment to really think about each question before writing your response.

2) Be detailed, yet concise
Include as much information as possible within the recommended target range of 150-250 characters.

3) Be honest
Coming across as genuine is very important for building trust in your business.

4) Be professional, yet friendly
Showing enthusiasm for what you do will encourage customers to choose you over your competitors. Avoid using slang words and abbreviations, and remember to check for any typos (we recommend using Grammarly).
