Tips for getting hired using Bark
Write professional messages
Make sure your message to the customer is clear, well structured and professional. This is their first impression of you!
You need to address any questions they may have and be sure that your message is tailored towards their requirement. And make sure that there are no spelling or grammar mistakes!
Provide accurate estimates
It's always good to provide an estimate. This gives the customer a basic idea on how much a job is going to cost them.
Even if you feel that you don't have enough information to provide an exact estimate, try to do so as you can change it as you find out more details about the job.
Complete your company profile
Customers look at company profiles to help make their decision on who to hire, so make sure yours is filled in and up to date!
You can upload pictures and videos, link to your social media accounts and give more information about your company! It's a great way for you to show the customer exactly what you're about.
Get customer reviews!
Getting reviews is a great way to increase the chances of getting hired. It gives you a way to show off all of your happy customers.
It's important that you take the time to get your customers to write you a review. Research shows that you are up to 4 times more likely to get hired if you have some reviews.
