Optimizing Your Portfolio

Posted by Matt Dubroff on Dec 11, 2015 11:55:00 AM


Thank you so much for taking the time to set up your profiles and auto-bids! Everyone is doing a great job, and VidMob users have been ecstatic with the results so far. To help you maximize your ability to get new jobs, I have a few additional tips to help you optimize your profile for our bid-sorting algorithm.

Properly Categorize Your Portfolio Videos.

In our research, clients are more likely to select an editor who has a portfolio video similar to the project the client is trying to make. Essentially, having a wedding video in your portfolio (categorized as a wedding video) will make you more attractive to a client making a wedding video. That is why we added categories to your portfolio videos.

Intelligently Customize Your Portfolio Videos.

Along the same lines, certain times of the year are better for videos in certain categories than others. For example, with Thanksgiving a few weeks ago and Christmas coming up, two of our most popular categories are currently Family/Kids and Holiday. In January, we anticipate Travel being a popular category, and the spring should see Weddings and Nature/Outdoors videos picking up. And our most consistent category? Business. All businesses need video to capture their audience’s attention online. So if you’re comfortable with more commercial or content marketing work, definitely select this category. For now, these are our best guesses, but we’ll make sure to let you know when we see surges in certain categories.

Publish Your Portfolio Videos to the MobFeed.

The MobFeed is part of our consumer-facing app that lets clients look through great videos from VidMob editors to help them get inspiration. A user can “favorite” an editor, and that editor will appear much more frequently for that client. The more videos you have in the MobFeed, the better your chances of being seen and favorited.

Our response from clients and editors alike has been amazing! We want to keep evolving VidMob into the best site and app it can possibly be for all of our users. If you have any ideas, suggestions, comments, or criticisms, please reach out to us at support@vidmob.com.
