  1. Here’s two tips that will be helpful:

    Communicate Effectively : Make sure that you talk in a way that people understand what you’re saying. If you talk in bits and pieces, it’s likely that the client won’t want to work with you because it’s hard to communicate. If you can’t speak English well, I would recommend taking a few English courses online.

    Don’t Violate TOS : Make sure that you don’t say anything that violates the TOS. Buyers will usually (and hopefully) see that as a red flag.

    Sound Interested: When you’re discussing a potential order with the buyer, sound engaged and interested. If you seem like you don’t want to complete the project, the buyer probably won’t want to work with you.


    @krheate Thank you so much for sharing some tips with us!

  2. Deliver great work. Have a Gig that requires or has the opportunity for more work. Some Gigs here are one and done.

    Whatever you do, do NOT message the buyer asking them if they need anything - this can be seen as spam and get your account a warning. This means, do not send them a message unless they message you first.


    @genuineguidance okay I understand, Thank you

  3. Just be caring about their project* and knowledgeable about your craft and its greater ramifications for this project.

    eg. Someone just asked me about Mixing a Punk record, I can naturally show some affinity for that by comparing moments in their work with great moments in the form. I can also point to the Punk tracks I just mixed for someone else. Further, I can give advice based on my 30+ years of involvement in Rock in general, and Indie artists in particular with advice on the smarter way of handling things. They will be impressed or not. Not my call anymore.


    • whilst avoiding faked caring like calling people Dear or calling their project valuable

    @benedictrm Thank you so much.

  4. Less thought of yourself, or even of pleasing clients for your reasons but of what the project needs.

    If the project wins, the client wins. If the client wins - and are a halfway decent/sane person, they will help you to win with them again.

    To do this you can’t just be doing average work, the least you can whilst hiding under unlimited re-derisions, you have to aim to do Great Work (like Gandhi, Martin Luther King, etc).

    I Mix for what the Song needs. If the client wants to damage their song I warn them instead of just saying yes. They come to me as a 30-year specialist. Putting my head down to “make it easy” is failing the song, is failing my client if I let them ruin their song’s chances of making people happy. I constantly seek to learn why songs work or don’t work. how to improve my ability to let songs be what they need to be.


    @benedictrm Thank you so much, It’s Very helpful.

  5. Well, I looked at your luxury logo design Gig.

    One way NOT TO IMPRESS Buyers is to offer “unlimited revisions” and 100% customer satisfaction promises.

    Here’s why:

    As a Buyer, I would look at that and think two things…

    1. The Seller lacks confidence in their ability to deliver top-quality product and is willing to revise it forever until I’m happy.

    2. I can hire you and have you revise something you create for me as long as I like. I can even come back to you in a couple of years to get more revisions (for FREE) because you said “unlimited revisions” in your Gig description.

    Oh, and what if I’m just 50% satisfied?

    That may have a lot of influence on whether or not I choose to give you a review.

    You need to change those things in all your Gigs and profile to avoid getting caught in this trap.

    @looseink Thank you very much, you have given me very important points. Now if I edit my gig will I lose my gig rank? or will there be any loss to my gig?

  6. Here are some common ways to impress clients:

    1. Have evidence that your solution works. Meaning, if you promise to get me followers, screenshot your profile and show me how many followers you have for yourself. If your solution works for you, I can assume it will work for me.
    2. Showcase your good work. Show your portfolio or the results that you gained. These can be a screenshot of your dashboard, analytics, some previous work or something similar. Don’t just talk about what you can do, show it.
    3. Social proof - ask for social proof where ever you can. If you have some relevant testimonials on social media, screenshot and show them on your gig.

    See, tricks don’t do much if you don’t have what to show for. What impresses clients are really your results, expertise, reputation and the ability to solve their problems. This takes a while to build up. But once you it that in place, buyers WILL be interested in working with you for sure.

    @exceptionalcopy Thank you so much. It’s very helpful.
