New Agency profile format

Community Manager

Today we are releasing our new agency profiles. Agencies will now be able to better display their skills and expertise in a profile format that helps agencies stand out and showcases the information that we know is important to potential clients. This new layout also clearly distinguishes agency profiles from individual freelancer profiles; as we understand that agencies and freelancers are not the same and having a one-size fits all profile doesn’t work.

 

The new agency profile includes areas to highlight company information, awards and certificates, featured clients, as well as many other sections that can be customized to be consistent with an agency’s brand and story.  The additional information in the new agency profiles will make it easier for clients to identify similar projects and clients agencies have worked with or completed in the past, along with other relevant details that are helpful for clients when evaluating agencies and making hiring decisions.  

 

This feature is currently live for agencies to create their profile with this new format. We encourage agency owners to get started today and in July we will begin displaying these new agency profiles to clients.  

 

To help agencies get started with the new agency profile format, our product and design team members will be hosting a webinar on June 26th at 9am PT.  Join the webinar to hear an overview of these changes and ask the team any questions you have. Click here to register.

 

Check out the new agency profile layout below.

It would be cool that you made some changes to the individual profiles as well, maybe play automatically the video when opening the profile, so client can see immediately the work, and we can present at first view our job, or at least a thumbnail to click, i think the play video button is a little hidden. We could use a cover image too...

Hi Raghuraj,

 

Apologies for the late follow-up on your question. If you're asking about accessing the feature, please speak with the agency owner since they have permission to update the agency profile. Let us know if you need further guidance and we'll be glad to help.

Hi Arevik,

 

Thank you for posting this question in the Community. As indicated in this Help article, banners may be adjusted to fit the screen of the viewer, this can result in the image being trimmed horizontally or vertically. A high-quality image (recommended size: 3200px by 320px) with little to no text will optimize the display across devices.

Hi Aleksandr,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us. I checked and it seems that your profile banner image is not the recommended size (3200px by 320px). Could you please try uploading a recommended size image and let us know if the issue still persists? 


Thank you.
