How to Send Attractive Buyer Request

Recommended Posts

Hello My Fellow Sellers,
It has been a longtime visiting here, hope sells are rolling well to you all.
I can see that one of the limitation facing some new seller on fiverr platform is how to get the attentions of buyers to their gigs and order from them. When I first started on fiverr about four month ago now, I wrote a lot of buyer requests in order to get the attention of buyers but no replied from them until I sit down stressed my IQ for just a little. You know what I did, I sit down wrote attractive templates based on my gigs, I started sending the templates to the buyers request and in the next two hours I got four orders with good price, for those that are new sellers I’ll like to share the sample of my template to you here because I known that to make it on fiverr is not a day job but I’ll like share my Ideals and tricks to those that are interested, If you’re in-need of the sample template and my tricks just comment here and it would be send to you.

Thanks.
Regards,

Hi there Bookcovers_pro,

I find that buyer requests is an excellent tool, however the buyers are often flooded with seller requests. So you need to stand out. Here are my few tips:

  1. Don’t waste time on posts that have at least 20+ requests, it’s more than likely that the buyer has already decided.

  2. Provide a short informative response. Remember, this will be sent as a custom offer so provide what you will require from the buyer also.

  3. Price it well, most sellers will often match the buyer’s budget, however I would recommend reducing the quote to make it stand out more. You could then potentially make extra money through up selling on delivery.

Hope this helps! If any one else has any advice, just post a reply 🙂

Kindest regards,

Reece

Templates again 😒

I’ve tried buyers request section as a buyer about 4-5 times and I found the right seller through that only once. Close to 90% of sellers were sending me templates which I instantly deleted. It takes about 5 minutes to write a customized answer to a buyer’s request (it’s 800 characters). If a seller can’t spare 5 minutes then I don’t expect them to invest much effort in my order.

Since I’m also a seller, I made about 15 offers last week and got 3 clients out of it (worth $375 in total).

  • I didn’t use any templates
  • I sent only custom offers addressing buyer’s requirements
  • I’m definitely not offering the lowest prices. I know what my services are worth, so I’m not even trying to compete with $5 offers.
  • I don’t have a ton of reviews either, but once I get a buyer to reply back to me I know how to sell my services.
  • I hardly ever use up my daily limit, simply because I don’t bid on random requests. Just like clients are looking for a perfect seller I do my research to make sure I don’t end up with a scammer.

All I’m trying to say is that a template is not a magic solution that works for everyone. I’m sure it might work for some sellers, but it’s not a golden rule.
Do you homework and don’t rely on others to write a template to sell your services.

Hi,

Just today I decided to use the technique that many sellers are using, which is posting request in buyers request. My post got rejected twice, for reasons I’m not aware of.

What am I doing wrong or taking this step of posting my gig in buyers request is completely a wrong step?

Let me know please.

Why are you posting in buyer requests section if you’re a seller?

It’s for buyers who are looking for sellers.

If some dimwit jumps out the window and survives it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea 😛

Hi Gina,

I very well understand what is the purpose of buyers request. People who want to use a service, post their request in buyers request and sellers respond to it.

I have noticed so many sellers posting in buyers request that I got confused that this should be for buyers only. Why are sellers jumping in here?.

Hi,

I agree with your point. I’m a newbie here and still learning the tricks and techniques.

I see my expert advice is not required here.

Very well then; I shall point out everyone is begging for scraps on an elderly post then.

That point is indisputable.

Now for the refrain: this chap hasn’t visited the forum since November 2016. This predates the new forum. If you think he’s going to return to give you a crappy template that won’t help you, I want some of what you’re smoking, guys. Go and spam his inbox instead. Geesh. (Don’t do this)

To everyone looking for templates -
Stop wasting your and the buyer’s time.
Stop looking for the easy way out.
Stop thinking there is a method of success that will compensate for your laziness.
Stop making Buyer Requests an even worse place for buyers than it already is - nobody wants a response that is a template so dont use them.

Instead:
Start by reading what the buyer wants.
Start considering whether this matches your skills. If it does - respond. If it doesn’t - move on.
Start your response by introducing yourself in one sentence.
Start addressing what the buyer has asked for.
Start telling the buyer exactly what you will do.

Start doing the above and you will start getting orders from Buyer Requests. Then don’t stop.

My opinion is go directly on the buyer requirements using template is the worst way. Because the buyers on the first glance when see you message they make there minds that the person have not read it carefully. So they just skip.

Read the description carefully. Make up your answer and start writing your proposal.

Hi,

I can create … etc. <-- this is what buyer is looking. for.

Introduce your self in second sentence.

Exclusive Offer in the third one

Thanks

That’s it don’t write 800 words
