Matt Dubroff, Editor Czar, here. We have been live in the iOS App Store in North America for almost a week, and we have already learned lots of valuable information. Be on the lookout for a blogpost in the coming days that will have some great statistics for you, but in the meantime, we have a couple tips to help you better use our platform.
- Respond PROMPTLY to your clients
In our testing, clients who consistently received quick responses (within a few hours) have a much higher degree of satisfaction and are more likely to give their editors high ratings. We recommend you respond within a few hours of being awarded a project or receiving a message from a user, but the quicker the better. Also, our algorithm takes into account the response time in replying to these messages, so quick responses will help you get more work.
- Fully complete your profile
Our algorithm prioritizes editors who have completely filled out their entire profile. This means 6 portfolio videos (with proper categories), your About Me section, and your Preferences.
- Set up robust auto-bids
In order for your auto-bids to be set up most efficiently, we recommend you watch a video we made earlier this week: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3_uO0YCYN4. If anything comes up that would prohibit you from working on a VidMob project, please pause your auto-bid.
While we are live in the iOS App Store in North America, we are still a new app and don’t have that many users…yet! We are seeing a steady growth in the number of consumers downloading the app, but please be patient while we ramp up our userbase.
On behalf of everyone at VidMob, we want to thank you for taking the time to sign up and build great profiles in our system! We think we have a very special platform here, and we couldn’t have built it without the amazing feedback you have been sending us. We want to make VidMob the best platform it can be for our editors, and to help us do this, your feedback is invaluable. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any thoughts or suggestions for how to improve the site, and we will keep working on making better every day.
Thanks again to our Mob—here’s to the wild, winding road ahead!
