  1. I guess to avoid a follow-up before auto complete. Include the supposed follow-up message upon delivery about wanting anything revised. So it would also count as the last message they would have seen that you indeed were open to revisions. I agree! Fantastic idea- best of both worlds.
  2. Sometimes people are only a little bit unhappy. Not enough to make them ask for an actual revision-just enough to make them drop contact. I agree that pestering the buyer is not good- and that inquiring about the job may open up revision requests that may not have happened. It’s a 50/50 call I suppose because they could end up either annoyed by the follow up or much happier with the service in the end- and you could end up with a repeat client. Annoyed is worse though 😊 So I’ll stick with radio silence 👍
  3. I come from a long history in customer service- and a check in under these circumstances would have always been best practice in all my past experiences. Fiverr may be a more “detached” customer service model though- so I was wondering what the best way was:)
  4. Hi all:) Everyone has orders that auto complete with no word from the buyer. The buyers reasons for letting an order automatically complete can be varied- but I wondered if anyone routinely checks in with the buyer a day beforehand - just in case they really wanted something revised, but didn’t say anything. Any thoughts on this?
  5. @mjensen415 Definitely interested!
  6. Maybe voice over how to lessons?Techniques? Purpose category could be the same as regular voiceover but with the added how to edit vo how to master vo how to add background music to vo. Even deeper- how to de-ess how to remove plosives
  7. What about if you get a sketchy/unresponsive buyer and you look at their one seller review (which was vague) and wonder how that seller dealt with them? I had one come up a while back. I plowed through and made it to the end but it would have been encouraging if I could confirm with the prior seller that buyer was legitimate-only just difficult. But that would probably lead to an abuse of that too I suppose. Would have been nice though:)
  8. Nice! Well it looked great and was very clear!
  9. I’m in the test bunch for the new gallery tags. The webinar on it was interesting- it seems they are giving us the option of condensing our gigs by tagging our variations. Kind of how search works on Amazon. The example they gave was on an illustration gig. They showed one illustration gig with up to 3 variations (animal/human/etc) with separate tags for each variation. Then, when buyer is searching for “animal illustration” the gig image that is tagged with that will show for the buyer as the main image. And the different gig image tagged with “human illustration” will show to a different buyer— but all from the same gig. It’s kinda exciting! 😊
  10. @mjensen415 Interesting! How is this different from the other relatively new catagory “audio ads” ?
  11. Correlation ≠ Causation. But people will try to find trends in virtually anything. I’ve been pretty darn active on the forum for approaching 2/3rds of a year, and in all that time with all those posts and all that interaction, I received a grand total of one order from someone who knew me from the forum. And from reading other sellers who’ve been on the forum longer than I have, that’s entirely typical. I haven’t either- just have had buyer messages come in inquiring about orders when I’m active- like with the forum page open on my phone. Not every time…but like I said- enough to notice and wonder if there is a connection. However- I can take all your words for it that there is none :tipping_hand_woman:
  12. I understand this perspective- also consider the possibility that new sellers may be noticing a connection between posting and then instantly receiving messages and that could also be a reason it persists. No idea- :bowing_woman:
  13. It is not really one platform. The forum is run on the Discourse forum software. Hence, what you post here will have no direct impact on your Fiverr gig rank/placement and things like that. My original post is targeted at sellers who post here just to post something. They think that they need to post a certain number of times a day (no matter what they post) and heart thirty posts per day, and they will then magically get orders. Those are the ones I am targeting. There are a lot of useless posts that flood the forum because of this. This is what I and several other long-time users of the forum here have noticed and recognize. Yes, it is possible to get buyers by someone noticing that you post useful things. It will not happen if you post random things. And if it does happen, it happens very rarely, as seen in @mariashtelle1’s poll: I agree that this is likely not how it works.
  14. Anything is possible- and like I said- it could be complete coincidence. But the fact remains that it happens often enough for me to notice. And why are so many users SO invested in it NOT being true? Why wouldn’t it be connected? Its all one platform.
