Videos on Profiles + Videos in Proposals Feature now available!
We are happy to introduce this new feature to all our users. We feel it will make the entire site experience much more enjoyable and useful.
With the new feature, Sellers can record a video which is a kind of sales pitch to the buyer, introducing themselves in person. With the video option sellers can advertising their relevant experience and skills, telling buyers why they want to work on their projects or why they are better than other candidates for the job etc
At the same time, Buyers save time by watching a few seconds / minutes of a video instead of only reading the resume and text. Also, the Buyer gets a more immediate view of how the Seller communicates. As we all know, communication is one of the most important parts of entering a work relationship between buyers and sellers.
Videos can be added to the Sellers profile for all Buyers to view and there is also the option of adding a different specialized video when sending a proposal to a buyer for a specific job.
The video option works with a computer camera as well as the option of using a cell phone. Please follow the instructions as provided when you select either option. We hope this new feature brings everyone much success and proves useful and enjoyable.
Below are some screen shots of how the process works and looks like:

The video will appear in a larger screen for viewing.
Seller optionally can record a video when sending a new proposal.
