We’ve received feedback from an overwhelming number of our Employer accounts that they would like to see recommendations written by previous clients and co-workers. In response, we’re excited to announce the launch of our first major new LocalSolo feature, Recommendations. These recommendations will appear at the bottom of the Freelancer’s profile page and also as a counter in the search results and the profile side navigation buttons. For added veracity, we’ve included the ability for our Freelancer’s clients and co-workers to attach their Linkedin profile to the recommendations they leave.
We encourage all freelancers to start using this feature to request and build up your recommendations. Recommendations greatly improve the Freelancer’s search ranking in LocalSolo and are one of the biggest factors clients take into account before hiring a freelancer. Freelancers, you can now login to you account and go to the Recommendations Area in your admin. In this area you can request that people recommend you in two easy ways, via EMAIL, or via LINKEDIN api integration that pulls in your connections (if you authorize it).
