buyer requests are being closed

For what we see "Fiverr is updating Buyer requests - July 9". If they will replace it by Buyer Brief in my opinion will be a disaster.

The "Buyer Brief" is completely broken, this means do not work properly and for what we can see in topics the sellers are not using it due not getting results from it.

I beg to differ! I have gained one of my best repeat clients from a buyer brief.

Can they be improved? 100%. But buyer requests make us look bad. The quality of the job postings there is mostly terrible.

A seasoned seller who taught me a lot calls them “Fiverr's cesspool”.

I have a joke, here is a buyer request:

“ Need h3lp 4 audiob0ok.

You have to write the script, do the voice-over, mix and master it.

Publish it on audible.

Oh, and come mop and sweep my house.

Budget $5, Delivery: 24hrs”.

Believe it or not, I have seen this thing without the last part.

The problem of the Buyer Brief is that you receive Briefs not relationed to the works you do, this is the point that must be improved but still not working properly. Now at least we can message the buyers to get more informations, as many Briefs do not contains enough details.

I was unaware of this. I hope that they fix it!

For me, it has always been 100% audio related work. Never had such problems.

And how many Briefs you usually receive per day? Just a question since in the buyer request we could send 10 offers/day... who is in seller plus 20 offers/day.

Take a look on this brief is from a Seller making spam with a short link to promoted himself.

Wow, that's crazy. I have heard that they were working on ways to eradicate spam.

As for your question, the most I've seen are 1-2 per day. But, my niche is not super popular. Even buyer requests are few. 

I had rarely spent my 10 buyer requests as a new seller. Let alone the 20 that I have now as a seasoned seller plus member.

And to be honest, I had few good experiences with buyer requests. Most have been a waste of time.

The best ones had been people new to Fiverr who were very confused by the search function and chose to do a job posting.

I had some great orders from people like that.

These days, I can still see buyer requests on pc but on the app, it tells me that it is closed. It is probably a grace period. We'll see!

Well at least we can report these spams. There was a brief I applied and the user asked me to message him in what... is impossible to handle with all spams but they must do efforst to take action agaist it.
