Motivational Tips For New Sellers in Hard Times


Recommended Posts

Hi @sabinasattar_17 You have written some key points. But the problem is buyer request has gone in a second and sometime in 0.5 seconds. So how can we write a good proposal in such a short time?

Hello @abdul87 what you can do sometimes is like write a general and effective template and change some words accordingly. For example if the request is about Logo replace that word with logo but this is not always fruitful because you should add 1 line or 2 regarding the job offer to gain trust from the buyer. Btw, Buyer Requests are not gone until you refresh the page so you have time to atleast read and send a good offer 🙂

@sabinasattar_17 Yes, I have used the template. Thanks for your kind suggestion. Best of luck for your work. Stay bless.

It’s totally unpredictable when your buyer responses to your queries and offers! But you should keep trying your best in every single way. I have come across many of my friends who just get frustrated for not having a single reply even after sending 200+ requests. Let me remind you, you are not the only one who is suffering this - there are many more like you. But you need to keep our boat sailing that’s how you win!

These days its tough to compete because every day thousands of new sellers are joining Fiverr and trying to bring out the best in them. You need to make sure you differentiate yourself among them. I am giving some tips below to help achieve buyer responses.

  • Read the buyer request carefully and respond accordingly; don’t just send templates.

  • Due to COVID-19 maybe your buyers are not interested to respond to largely written offers; they are in hurry for work done. So be on-topic and straight to the point, no need to explain yourself in the offers - talk about the buyer’s problem and how you can give the solution.

  • Refresh the “buyer request” page more often and try to send requests when you see a “zero” number of requests sent yet. Most of the sellers send requests when that job already got 50+ offers. The buyer may not go down to 50th number and chose you, right?

  • If the buyer has mentioned his/her name; start the proposal by greeting with their name. This helps to catch the attention that you have read their job offer.

  • You can mention shortly about the similar types of jobs that you have previously done so that the buyer regains more faith and trust in you to handover the job. But don’t fake yourself, be genuine and honest.

  • Try to always give unlimited revisions and deal with them patiently, remember every order counts whether you get reviews or not. Don’t get upset if a buyer doesn’t leave a review 🙂 I have completed 5 jobs so far - but got only 3 reviews so its okay.

Hope these tips help you. Let me know if you achieve any success applying these tips. All the best! 🙂

I don’t think that’s good tip. In outcome every buyer request will have at least 50+ offers and it don’t really matter if you send your offer first or last, because in most cases buyer will use sorting by reviews or ratings option (at least that’s what im doing when I buy services on Fiverr).

Also sending offer as first don’t gives you temporary win of being only one to review by buyer, because when posting buyer request it needs to take few hours to validate and buyer won’t notice it probably so fast. When I post buyer request and sit down to check offers I already have somewhere around 30-50 offers in most cases.

And trust me most buyers will check every offer and decide which one is most appealing. In my opinion you should spend some time to write great offer on every buyer request and don’t think about if it have 0 or 100 offers already.

I see! Thank you for sharing this with us, great to know that. But I think sometimes its also fine to be noticed earlier that latter, no? Because when I got my first job I was new, got no review, rating nothing. But I tried to apply a little faster and yes of course with a great offer so I got selected. If the buyer (who selected me) would have sorted the sellers in terms of review or ratings then probably I was no way eligible to that offer, right? What do you think?

Well we as a sellers always think when posting offer that there will be probably tens of top rated sellers offering also. In reality at least 90% offers are not even on topic and in 100 offers I get in most cases 1-3 appealing offers, so competition is not really that big as it seems. Getting work from buyer request with 0 reviews takes not really that long if you always write awesome offer and have very good setup (profile, gigs etc).
