One way to stand out to project owners is to add a video pitch to your profile. You can link to a YouTube video that describes your skills, experience, and services. Profiles with a video pitch get more views and more invitations to submit proposals than those that do not. A video pitch may be added to either an individual profile or a company profile.

To add a video pitch to your profile:

  1. Select My Profile from the left navigation menu.
  2. Select the desired profile:
    • Select your name for your individual profile; or,
    • Select the name of the desired company.
  3. Select Video Pitch from the list of profile screens under the desired profile name.
  4. In the provided text box, enter the URL for your YouTube video. A preview of the video is displayed. To get the URL for your video:
    • In another browser window or tab, open your video in YouTube.
    • Right-click on the video and select Copy video URL from the context menu to copy the URL to your clipboard.
    • Paste the copied URL in the provided field.
  5. Click Save to save the link to your video pitch.

Note: You must click Save to save any changes made to the current page. If you leave the page by selecting a different profile page or using the left navigation menu to go to a different page without first choosing Save, any changes made to the current page are lost.
