Today, each Freelancer profile is associated with 1 of 17 main categories that can at times overlap. With the launch of the new Guru profile, categories will no longer define you. Instead you’ll be able to create services and associate each with 1 of 8 broader categories, using a single profile.
Also, to help ease you through this upcoming transition, we’ll get you started by adding a few services to your new profile. We’ll take your subcategories and make each a service, and we’ll map each service to a new category using the map below. Each service will display the feedback and earnings of its associated category. Feel free to create as many additional services as you want to increase your marketing power!
Next week we’ll be sending out more information about the release of the new profiles. In the meantime, if you have any questions feel free to get in touch!
