How To Spot Potentiality In New Sellers?

Recommended Posts

@nyantsa “But, being active on the forum is not a 100% sure metric for spotting potential in new sellers, but it can, depending on how you would rate the posts and comments of that particular seller (some personality traits of the seller could be taken in account). However, you would see professionalism and courtesy in their posts and comments.”

This metric is absolutely inaccurate for many reasons. For example, posting on a forum is not a sample of my work or has anything to do with my work or the professionalism I have when talking with a client via messages. Those two are separated.

Hi, Fiverr Community!

I would like to say, that the best way to spot potentiality in new sellers is to order the first work. Offen newbies are much more enthusiastic and attentive to details than the 5-year sellers. I would recommend ordering the 1 work for the lowest price he or she offers and then draw a conclusion about the quality and speed of the seller’s work.

Believe that it can help you a bit 😉 )

@katerynastepp I think buyers are likely to bank their trust in a seller with some reviews and ratings even though the new seller has a professional profile, gig images and description and competitive pricing of their packages.
There is always trust issues when it comes to where and how to spend your hard earned money and precious time, therefore, buyers are always reluctant to order even the lowest priced package from a new seller.

Enthusiastic, I might give that to you. Attentive to details, a freelancer likely doesn’t remain in business for 5 years if they weren’t attentive to details…

I am new to this site. I also want to add: communicate with the buyer more often, find out how he is doing? Like he? Ask him what his mood is. The kinder your conversation, the easier the creative process will be. Create a good mood for each other, because it’s easy 🙂

Assume much?

As mentioned before, new sellers may be more excited that they got an order - but this does NOT in any way mean that they are more attentive to details than a seller who has been here 5 years.

I have been here for 8.5 years, so I guess I don’t count in your theorem. 🤨

and this:

communicate with the buyer more often, find out how he is doing? Like he? Ask him what his mood is.

Most sellers here are not “counselors” who want to hand hold with their buyers and most buyers do not need or want this. They want their darn project done the way they want it - right the first time. All the “how are your feelings today” will not erase a crappy job. Sure, may make you look like you are empathetic, but that is not what most sellers are hawking here. Who cares what their mood is? For most, you want their mood to be creating an order from you!!!

Большинство продавцов здесь не «консультанты», которые хотят поддерживать отношения со своими покупателями, и большинство покупателей не нуждаются в этом или не хотят этого. Они хотят, чтобы их чертов проект был реализован так, как они этого хотят - с первого раза. Все «как ты сегодня себя чувствуешь» не сотрут дерьмовой работы. Конечно, вы можете выглядеть сочувствующим, но большинство продавцов здесь не об этом. Кого волнует их настроение? Для большинства вы хотите, чтобы их настроение создавало от вас заказ !!!

despite the fact that you have a lot of experience. Absolutely no one can 100% fulfill the whims of any customer. the performer is not clairvoyant and cannot look into the brain. therefore, I believe that communication should be mandatory, at least during the briefing phase. Well, if this communication is diluted with simple friendly phrases, it will not be worse, and the interlocutor is more pleasant. Nobody forces you. it’s just a desire. I don’t understand why you answered so negatively. Keep it simple))))

Again, assumptions. I guess you do not know what category I am in.

I answered in your mind negatively, because your “advice” is moot. Asking how your buyer is feeeeeling today is not how business is run. Sure, there is the “hey, how ya doin!” stuff, but, that is all fake and no one ever tells you really how they are - well, unless you are their clairvoyant, astrologer, psychic or counselor.

Most categories here are professional in nature - and this means treating the buyer professionally - not as if they are in your “inner circle” and you are trying to be their friend. They just want the work done right the first time. Period.

Keep it simple))))

By asking how they feel is not keeping it simple, in fact, this can just make things complicated in a business setting. Again, unless you are a counselor, feelings do not come into play here.

Also, you posted my reply in Russian - I do not speak that language, so do not want others to get the notion I posted in what is probably your native tongue. I only speak English and Pig-Latin. LOL

I just give a conclusion from my practice. I have always been sociable and polite with all clients. And we ended our cooperation with all the clients with good emotions, with some of them we still communicate.

And the fact that I made a quote in Russian: apparently, one of the quirks of my Internet browser. But I don’t think you were uncomfortable. I didn’t even bother to fix it 🙂 Okay. Both of us were not convinced. I hope you will be fine))))
