Earning an income on a new platform such as CanYa can be difficult if left uneducated. That’s why CanYa is making it super easy by providing you the best tips to maximise profits for any CanYa provider.
Step 1 – Setup your profile!
OK, so this may seem obvious to some but it is a must if you want to get noticed and sent quote requests. The process is easy, we promise.
A) Open up the hamburger menu, and hit the profile button. Now you can customise both the user and provider profiles used in the app.
B) A picture tells a thousand words. Add pictures to show off your work, especially if its previous CanYa work. Many users will determine who they want to employ based off quality alone!
C) Set your price for what your worth. Quality must match price. There is not point charging the top tier price bracket if you are just starting out, don’t have any formal licences/qualifications or if you are just doing work on the side. Retrospectively, if you are a qualified, licensed service provider, ensure your price is both competitive and warranted.
D) Add all your qualifications and licences; especially if you are providing more then 1 service. The more you have the more credibility you will gain!
Step 2 – Refer refer refer – The more you refer the better it is for everyone.
Ok, so why refer? 2 reasons.
- By referring new members and getting them to input your unique referral code (found in the sidebar menu) gives them $10 credit and YOU another $10 credit which is free to use inside the app (#Give10Get10). And, best of all this isn’t capped, so if you successfully refer 10 people, that’s $100 you can now use to hire someone you need, like one of our friendly babysitters.
- The second reason is that now every time your friends use the app and pay for jobs, we will give you 10% of our commission just to say thanks for the referral. How good is that?! We will even increase it to 15% if you referred the referrer.
Find out more about referring from our blog post here or our help article found here.
Moral of the story: Refer, refer, refer!
Step 3 – Make sure jobs are completed using the app
You might be thinking “But cash is king though??”
Well, yes this is true is some instances. However, using the CanYa app does several important things.
It lets you accurately track jobs, supply and amend invoices (very handy for tax time), protects you in case of disputes and finally builds reputation by keeping your account active and gets you peer reviews.
“But why do that, I can make more money in cash jobs?”
Ok, so this is why. Using CanYa to finish jobs does many things. First it gives you CanYa points which in turn helps increase the ranking of your profile. This means you can be found first which allows you to get you more jobs. For more info visit our help page here
Note: Keeping an active account will stop you from being deactivated for lack of activity!
Step 5 – Get your clients to like you!
If you have finished a job ensure your client leaves not only a review (which multiplies each point you earn from the job) but also likes you. A mere review and like can earn you 100’s of points which helps get you to the top of the profile rankings, yay!
Step 6 – Organise yourself
Are you busy with another job, study or other super important tasks?
Don’t fret. We built an availability calendar just for you.
Now you can set the time that you want to accept jobs. This helps you plan your life without having to worry about cancelling all the quotes that don’t fit your life.
