Featured Offers

Featured Offers is an additional, optional way by which Freelancers can make their Offers stand out to prospective Buyers. For a small fee, Featured Offers will have higher visibility across the site for 7 days.

Benefits

  • Be seen first by appearing at the top of the search listings

When you feature your Offer, it will appear at the top of the listings in four ways:

      1. In one of the three dedicated Featured Offer positions at the very top of the default listings page that all Buyers first come to. Note: because these positions are limited, your Offer will appear there only while it is one of the three latest Offers to be featured.

      2. On one of the three dedicated Featured Offers positions at the very top of your category. Note: because these positions are limited, your Offer will appear there only while it is one of the three latest Offers to be featured in that category.

      3. On the first page of the listings when Buyers sort by "Featured".  These listings are sorted by the most recent featured Offers so when you first feature your Offer it will be at the very top of these listings and then move it's way down the listings when other Offers are featured.

      4. In one of the three dedicated Featured Offers positions at the top of the listings when a Buyer performs a keyword search, if your Offer is one of the three most relevant Featured Offers for that search term.

  • Make your Offer stand out

Whenever your Offer appears in the listings to Buyers it will appear in a highlighted section, and with a special ribbon displayed over the image in both the search results and on the Offer detail page itself.

  • Get more exposure

Featuring an Offer improves your chances of being promoted across the PeoplePerHour homepage and included in the 'Offers of the Day' newsletter. The Offers displayed in these promotion slots are selected from the very best Offers, and the Featured Offers are checked first. Featuring your Offer doesn't guarantee it will be promoted in these parts of PPH however it does increase your chances. You can further boost your chances by making sure that your Offer meets the best practice described here.

How to feature your Offer

If you already have an Offer on the site you can feature it from the Offers section of your 'My Freelancer activity' page:

    • Simply hover over the Offer listed and click the green 'Feature it' button

    • You will be prompted to pay to Feature your Offer and can use money from your PPH wallet, credit card or PayPal.

Alternatively, you can feature a new Offer as follows:

  • Immediately after posting your new Offer, you will be taken to a page offering them the option to feature your Offer.

  • To feature the Offer, click "Get featured" and follow the instructions to pay.

When you feature your Offer you have the following renewal options to automatically re-feature your Offer: 

- EVERY DAY: You feature your Offer and then it gets re-featured every day automatically charging the feature fee to one of your existing payment methods. This moves your Offer at the top of the listings every day and maximizes the visibility of your Offer. Your Offer is shown as Featured at all times. 

- EVERY 3 DAYS: You feature your Offer and then it gets re-featured every 3 days automatically charging the feature fee to one of your existing payment methods. This moves your Offer at the top of the listings every 3 days. Your Offer is shown as Featured at all times. 

- EVERY 7 DAYS: You feature your Offer and then it gets re-featured every 7 days automatically charging the feature fee to one of your existing payment methods. This moves your Offer at the top of the listings every 7 days and keeps your Offer shown as Featured at all times.

 - NEVER: You feature your Offer only once. This means you pay the feature fee once and your Offer will then be featured for 7 days. You can re-feature your Offer again at any time to receive the benefits by following the steps above for featuring an existing Offer.  

Note, if you choose to re-feature your Offer again before the 7 day feature period has expired the 7 day feature period starts again, it is not added on to the end of the original feature period.
