Tips for Writing the Perfect Proposal for Fiverr Buyer Request


Recommended Posts

I’m not going to provide you any pre-made Fiverr buyer request templates to make the process easy & quick, if you think so.

Maybe that could work in early days of Fiverr when buyers were just discovering it, and there were less sellers available for the job. Things were easy, you must have heard it from some old sellers.

However, things have changed now and it’s becoming hard to get the project that is why you’re here, Am I right?

10 Daily Offers are like 10 Different Opportunities for you.

Let’s have a look at what you’re doing wrong, the perfect way for buyer proposals and communication skills.

 

================================================================================

Why Template Proposals are a big fail

Every buyer has a different frame of mind. On the first look, one cannot completely understand what type of person is the buyer.
With every proposal done using the same template you’re doing two things wrong:

  • It sounds spammy to Fiverr.
  • You’re not really getting into what the buyer needs.

Remember the first tip: An Effective Buyer Request Proposal is always unique and written by keeping in mind what buyer needs.

Get into the mind of the buyer. Understand what they need. If your template for Buyer Request proposals contains paragraphs about
your previous work with a lot of Flickr Links or you telling your past experiences then your chance of getting hired for the project
is only 20%, which I’ll be going into more details later.

Writing The Proposal perfect way

Grab your popcorn now. You’ve to pretty much become a buyer yourself for this. Ask yourself: “If I needed something, who would I hire
first and more confidently?”

Well it depends upon what type of buyer you are which includes:

    “I just need the job done man, I don’t care how much cash is spent.”
    “need the job done right now in X dollars. Fixed price.”
    “Met some CHEAP sellers who played me and now I’m angry. I need the job done, completely on time and only in $5!!!” (Worst
position one could be in.)

Or “Hey, I’m just Pewdiepie, playing around to buy weird stuff and get my account banned.” (Just kidding, don’t take this one
seriously)

Here are some set of rules if you want some serious buyer activity:
It’s not only about you (Don’t Brag)

I’m a buyer, and I’m here to get MY tasks done here. You think I need to know how many buyers you have worked with before? Just tell
me if you have experience with something  similar to what I need.

In other words, instead of this:

“Hi, I’m a Web Developer who has worked with 287392 organizations since 2005 and many of my clients say that their experience with me
has been great. I need to let you know that I have created 50 websites which I am going to enlist here for you to check.” (Just an
example.) not good looking cheap,

You need to be like this:

“Hey, Hope you’re doing good. I checked the details and it looks like I’ve worked on something similar to that on this
website xample.com, I can help you in the task you need. Let’s talk about this in more detail.”
This seems more focused and concise.
==============================================================

Your second Tip summarized would be: Tell them what you can do for them, not what you have done for others.
Try to make it friendly

You can be friendly with buyers, but don’t cross the limits. It’s not about “Let’s drink vodka together tonight” though, but get
comfortable with them. This helps build trust, so you can work with him 4 times in future as well.

This doesn’t means that you also write the same sentence, try to come up with something friendly which makes the buyer thinks that
you’re comfortable to work with. You can try to be funny if it works. Be Yourself (No fake Portfolio)

As a new seller, you usually don’t have a portfolio. I’ve seen some people showing fake portfolio from anywhere around the web to
gain buyer’s trust. Only show the portfolio if your name is present on the website somewhere. But it’s a better practice to have a
portfolio URL in your Gig or show it in inbox while discussing (only if the buyer asks for it). Side Note: Try to include a Flickr
link in the Gig or profile. Not your own website etc. Don’t make your proposal scream “I’m hungry for your Money & getting orders!”
instead show that you genuinely want to help them. Don’t show fake portfolio, instead let them know that you have to knowledge
required for the task.

A Sample Buyer Request Proposal:

“Hey! I would like to get this task done for you and I’m available to do it right now for you. I have understood your requirements
and have the required knowledge for this.”
Researching the provided details

This is something you should spend around 2-3 minutes on. Usually buyers don’t provide much details in their request.
===============================================================


Reading long paragraphs is boring

Some buyers just need something quick to get to know you. Especially on Fiverr, when we ourself see long buyer requests we chose to
not bid on them (I sometimes do this) the same goes with buyers too.

You have to be extremely concise with your proposals, try proof-reading the proposal once you’re written it. Remove sentences which
you think adds no value and have no concern to the buyer’s request.

So another tip to remember: Keep things short.

Sometimes I watch summarized videos of books on YouTube, because we sometimes don’t have time to read out the whole book. Or before
buying a book you’d like to know what it is like. We can say being to-the-point does have a lot of value in this world.

I also re-read my blog posts and remove what’s not necessary.

For instance, checkout these three buyer request proposals I have done recently:
HI, I can install + Setup the WordPress Support Ticket plugin for you. Kindly message me so we can discuss in more details and start
working on this right now. Regards, Salman

HI, I have done this for one of my clients before. Kindly contact me and I'll get the job done within the next 24 hours for you.
Regards,Salman

Hey, I can create the website for you. I have worked with many clients before and created an RTL site before for a client as well.
Kindly message me so we can discuss this in more detail. Regards,Salman

You can see I don’t make them longer than a specific limit.

Hope this will help you.

Happy Freelancing

10 Daily Offers are like 10 Different Opportunities for you.

Let’s have a look at what you’re doing wrong, the perfect way for buyer proposals and communication skills.

 

================================================================================

Why Template Proposals are a big fail

Every buyer has a different frame of mind. On the first look, one cannot completely understand what type of person is the buyer.
With every proposal done using the same template you’re doing two things wrong:

  • It sounds spammy to Fiverr.
  • You’re not really getting into what the buyer needs.

Remember the first tip: An Effective Buyer Request Proposal is always unique and written by keeping in mind what buyer needs.

Get into the mind of the buyer. Understand what they need. If your template for Buyer Request proposals contains paragraphs about
your previous work with a lot of Flickr Links or you telling your past experiences then your chance of getting hired for the project
is only 20%, which I’ll be going into more details later.

Writing The Proposal perfect way

Grab your popcorn now. You’ve to pretty much become a buyer yourself for this. Ask yourself: “If I needed something, who would I hire
first and more confidently?”

Well it depends upon what type of buyer you are which includes:

    “I just need the job done man, I don’t care how much cash is spent.”
    “need the job done right now in X dollars. Fixed price.”
    “Met some CHEAP sellers who played me and now I’m angry. I need the job done, completely on time and only in $5!!!” (Worst
position one could be in.)

Or “Hey, I’m just Pewdiepie, playing around to buy weird stuff and get my account banned.” (Just kidding, don’t take this one
seriously)

Here are some set of rules if you want some serious buyer activity:
It’s not only about you (Don’t Brag)

I’m a buyer, and I’m here to get MY tasks done here. You think I need to know how many buyers you have worked with before? Just tell
me if you have experience with something  similar to what I need.

In other words, instead of this:

“Hi, I’m a Web Developer who has worked with 287392 organizations since 2005 and many of my clients say that their experience with me
has been great. I need to let you know that I have created 50 websites which I am going to enlist here for you to check.” (Just an
example.) not good looking cheap,

You need to be like this:

“Hey, Hope you’re doing good. I checked the details and it looks like I’ve worked on something similar to that on this
website xample.com, I can help you in the task you need. Let’s talk about this in more detail.”
This seems more focused and concise.
==============================================================

Your second Tip summarized would be: Tell them what you can do for them, not what you have done for others.
Try to make it friendly

You can be friendly with buyers, but don’t cross the limits. It’s not about “Let’s drink vodka together tonight” though, but get
comfortable with them. This helps build trust, so you can work with him 4 times in future as well.

This doesn’t means that you also write the same sentence, try to come up with something friendly which makes the buyer thinks that
you’re comfortable to work with. You can try to be funny if it works. Be Yourself (No fake Portfolio)

As a new seller, you usually don’t have a portfolio. I’ve seen some people showing fake portfolio from anywhere around the web to
gain buyer’s trust. Only show the portfolio if your name is present on the website somewhere. But it’s a better practice to have a
portfolio URL in your Gig or show it in inbox while discussing (only if the buyer asks for it). Side Note: Try to include a Flickr
link in the Gig or profile. Not your own website etc. Don’t make your proposal scream “I’m hungry for your Money & getting orders!”
instead show that you genuinely want to help them. Don’t show fake portfolio, instead let them know that you have to knowledge
required for the task.

A Sample Buyer Request Proposal:

“Hey! I would like to get this task done for you and I’m available to do it right now for you. I have understood your requirements
and have the required knowledge for this.”
Researching the provided details

This is something you should spend around 2-3 minutes on. Usually buyers don’t provide much details in their request.
===============================================================


Reading long paragraphs is boring

Some buyers just need something quick to get to know you. Especially on Fiverr, when we ourself see long buyer requests we chose to
not bid on them (I sometimes do this) the same goes with buyers too.

You have to be extremely concise with your proposals, try proof-reading the proposal once you’re written it. Remove sentences which
you think adds no value and have no concern to the buyer’s request.

So another tip to remember: Keep things short.

Sometimes I watch summarized videos of books on YouTube, because we sometimes don’t have time to read out the whole book. Or before
buying a book you’d like to know what it is like. We can say being to-the-point does have a lot of value in this world.

I also re-read my blog posts and remove what’s not necessary.

For instance, checkout these three buyer request proposals I have done recently:
HI, I can install + Setup the WordPress Support Ticket plugin for you. Kindly message me so we can discuss in more details and start
working on this right now. Regards, Salman

HI, I have done this for one of my clients before. Kindly contact me and I'll get the job done within the next 24 hours for you.
Regards,Salman

Hey, I can create the website for you. I have worked with many clients before and created an RTL site before for a client as well.
Kindly message me so we can discuss this in more detail. Regards,Salman

You can see I don’t make them longer than a specific limit.

Hope this will help you.

Happy Freelancing
