Motivational Tips For New Sellers in Hard Times


Recommended Posts

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 think the default sort option that shows offers to the buyer is “date”, which I think shows them in descending order of date/time, ie. I think the default is to show the most recent offers at the top of the list. So sometimes it might still be worthwhile to send an offer even if there are quite a lot of other offers sent to the same request (unless it’s not a recent request).

Try to always give unlimited revisions and deal with them patiently, remember every order counts whether you get reviews or not.

It’s might be better to have a high enough fixed number of revisions I think. That way you won’t risk getting a buyer asking for endless revisions (like >=20).

I strongly agree with both of your points. About the sorting of requests by the buyer; you are right may be on some cases. But on the other hand when there is a new buyer on Fiverr and know little about it - at that time this trick may work about sending requests faster.

And about the unlimited revisions, as I said already above in my previous comments - I think we as a new seller should have something big and unique to offer to the buyers. Because we are new so they may not trust us and doubt on our quality of work. This is really really tough to offer as I am myself facing this already but at the end of the day it will be helpful for my account in the long run. Once your account is stable and you earned some ranking and levels. After that you can reduce the amounts of revisions because you will have more work then.

Btw, these two tips are already helping me to receive orders as a new seller. And you know something? Same buyers are returning to me again after one work is done and the reason is “Unlimited Revisions” 🙂
