Reading long paragraphs is boring!!!! and Don't copy paste your proposal
Some of buyers they don't have much time to read. you have to read the job and understand. then simple 2/3 line describe how you can do this job complete and send related project what you have done before. Happy Freelancing !!!

wow! GOOD idea thanks

The Buyer Requests section is reserved for Buyers who want to make purchases.  Sellers are not allowed to use this section to promote their Gigs (doing so may lead to an account warning).  This also means the wording used should clearly show that you are a Buyer asking for services.  Try to word your Request using the following guide:

    I'm looking for...
    I want to purchase...
    I need someone who will...

Avoid sentences like:

    I will...
    I'm offering...
    I can do...

What are you babbling on about?

This guy asked how to answer a buyer's request, not how to write one.

Doh!

I know everyone else just loves your form letter here, but, I would never hire you.

Bad English and grammar, plus what does removing a background image have to do with you being a logo designer? Also, Unlimited Revisions? Wow, that is a great way to get used and abused. "After Service Support" - another way to get abused.

Nowhere in your form letter above do you address specifically what the buyer wants. You would have done better to have written a sample buyer's request and then how you would respond. The above is just very generic and well, would end up in the trash as far as I am concerned.

You joined July 9 of this year? How many orders has this form letter of yours gotten you?

If you have trouble finding what you are looking for or have a special request, you can submit a Buyer's Request. This allows you to send your request to the Fiverr community. If your request meets the criteria of a seller, the seller will submit an offer, which you can review and approve if it meets your needs.

To request a specific service:
  1. Once logged in, click on your profile picture and choose Post a Request from the drop-down menu.
  2. In the description area, write what you are searching for.
    For example, if you are looking for a logo, you can specify your company name, business type, preferred color, etc. If you'd like, you can attach a file.
    Note: You can only attach files up to 1 GB.
  3. Select the category and subcategory of your request.
    For example, if you are looking for a logo, you should choose "Logo Design" within the "Graphics & Design" category.
    Note: In some categories, you may be asked to provide additional information (criteria).
  4. Select when you would like your service delivered once you place your order.
    You can select 24 Hours, 3 Days, 7 Days, or select Other and specify a delivery time between 1 and 90 days.
  5. Enter your budget for the service you are requesting.
  6. Click Post.

    Your request will be labeled Pending until Fiverr approves it. If your request is not approved, it will be labeled Unapproved and you will get an email explaining why it wasn't approved.   You can also review our article Tips to create a Buyer Request for more information on this. 

    Note: once submitted a Buyer Request cannot be edited, it can only be deleted.

 

How do I manage the offers I'm getting to my Buyer Request?

You thought out your needs, placed a concise request with all the information clearly stated, and you were respectful in your request.
 
Now the bids start coming in. What do you do?
  • First, eliminate the ones from sellers you know did not read your request. You want sellers who show they understand your needs, addressed how they can help solve them, and shared experience to back that up.
  • Second, visit the sellers you think have merit. Read their reviews, study their Gigs, and if you like them, favorite them by clicking on the heart icon found on the top right corner of their Gigs.  
     
Continue this process until you have a handful of potential candidates. From here, you have two options. Option one is to message the sellers and find out more about how they can help, what it will cost, and what samples they have if not already provided. Option two is to order $5 basic Gigs from each seller as a test. See what the experience is with each, and choose your preferred seller.
 
If you are still getting flooded with bids, you can pause your request. You do not have to make a decision or respond to each proposal as they come in. 
 
 

How do I manage my Buyer Requests?

Tools to manage your requests: 

  1. Once logged in, click on your profile picture and choose the option Manage Requests from the drop-down menu.
  2. If your request is approved, in the Action drop-down list, you can select:
  • Pause if you want to pause your request due to too many offers, for example.
  • Boost if you want to push your request to the top of the list of requests.  This is done by updating the date of the request to be the "Boost" date. You can boost each approved request only once. The label, "Boosted," will appear next to your request if you select this action.
  • Delete if you want to remove your request.

Note: Buyer requests with no new activity (i.e., new offers or boosting) will expire after 14 days.
 

  1. If your request is approved, and sellers have sent their bids, click Review Offers.
    You will see the number of offers your request has received so far next to the button. 
  2. To sort your offers by date, price, delivery time, ratings, or reviews, click the Sort Offers by drop-down list.
  3. To accept a Gig, click Order Now
    If you wish to review the seller's profile prior to purchasing, click on their username.  This will take you to the seller's Gig page, where you can find more information about the seller.
    If you would like to communicate with the seller before ordering, click on contact me.

    Note: To remove an offer, click Remove Offer. This will allow you to see more offers in place of the offers you remove.

The possible Buyer Request statuses are:
  • Active: This means your Gig request is available and can be viewed by sellers as an active request. 
  • Paused: This means your Gig request is not active and not available to sellers. For example, if you have enough offers on your request, you can pause your request.
  • Pending: Once you submit a request, the status is pending until Fiverr approves it.
  • Unapproved: If your request doesn't meet the proper criteria from our content team, it will be labeled Unapproved.

Yes i have got Five order. 

I am not sure about this. 

I am not saying that you can get 100% 

everyone have there way to like or unlike.

I like this but I don't know about the client they will like or not. 

Some of client like to see big proposal and some of them like short way 

I think we can not say if you do something else you will get order.

Yes I  am agreed with you not 100%

if some need like logo so they can do it by self but  why they come to Fiverr instead of doing by self. The reason is time and long proposal will destroy there time. that's why I am agree with you

Before writing a proposal:

  • Make sure you are interested in the project, and make sure the budget specified by the buyer is on your safe range. For example if the budget is $100 for a certain job, and you usually do that job for $120, then the budget is in a safe range. If the budget is ridiculously low, don't send a proposal (obviously).
  • Make sure you have read the request, and make sure you have seen attached files (if there is any).
  • Make sure you can do the job.

While writing a proposal:

  • Don't start your proposal with "Dear buyer", "Dear Sir/Madame", or "Respected buyer" etc.. It's annoying, say "Hi" and move on.
  • Introduce yourself briefly, and if the buyer is seeking a logo designer, tell them you are a logo designer, no need for listing all your "skills". 
  • In two or three sentences, describe what and how you will do to complete the project.
  • No harm in reading the request again.
  • Make sure you are writing proper English, use proper verbs and sentences. No one is perfect, but good grammar means good communication.
  • If you find something unclear in the request, ask about it. This means you did read the request and you are into the project.
  • Don't offer unlimited revisions, you are not a slave, and we both know you can't physically offer unlimited revisions.
  • Write "I will work for you until you satisfy 100% (No extra charge)" on a paper and set it on fire.
  • Mention a useful comment about the attached files (if there is any).
  • Don't offer low costs, you should put a fair price for you and for the buyer.
  • Be reasonable. If the buyer wants a job done for $100 and in 10 days, don't offer him to do the job for $10 and in 1 day with unlimited revisions.
  • The list can go on but I have a cat to feed.

After writing a proposal:

  • Move on with your life. Don't stop improving your skills and portfolio.
  • Don't use an extension to refresh your browser to stay online 24/7.
  • Don't put all your hopes and dreams on that job.
  • Don't send 10 proposals daily just because you can. Only send proposal to project you are interested in.

My cat is screaming, I have to go.
