Service types are a tool (available in select subcategories) to help you classify your Service. Read the below FAQ to learn about how service types can help you get found by the most relevant buyers, increase conversion, differentiate your services and position yourself to earn more!
What are service types?
Service types are a way to classify your Service in subcategories that offer multiple kinds of services within a subcategory – they’re almost subcategories inside of subcategories! By tagging your Service with the relevant service type, you can indicate what type of service you are offering in a specific Service, and make sure that buyers will easily find your Service. For example, within the WordPress subcategory, there are a variety of services to provide, so we identified the following service types.
- Full Website Creation
- Bug Fixes
- Backup, Cloning & Migration
- Landing Page
- WP Installation & Set Up
- Performance & SEO
- Help & Consultation
You can select one service type per Service.
How can I add a service type to an existing Service?
First of all, be sure to activate Service Packages if available in your subcategory. You may see a prompt to add service types to your Service when service types arrive in your subcategory. Or you can follow these steps:
- Go to Edit Service
- Select the right service type from pricing tab on the dropdown menu
Note: You will have the option to identify the correct service type for your Service on the Create Service page
How can service types help me in search results?
Tagging your Service with the appropriate service type means defining it in the marketplace in a meaningful way for search results. The service type is essentially metadata that relates to terms that buyers search for. When you use the right service type, buyers who are looking for exactly what you provide will see your service in their search results. Picking a service type that fits your Service will unlock the package attributes that allow you to better define what’s unique about your Service.
Why don’t I have service types in my category?
Service types are not relevant to all subcategories because not every subcategory has multiple types of services available within it.
