  1. I see the buyer request is good enough to send 1 or 2 offers every week (from my experience). In the past, I didn't bother send an offer when the buyer already got +5 offers. After posting few requests of my own, now I send an offer even if the buyer already got +30 offers.
  2. $5 client: Wants an update every hour and 20 revision per minute. $5000 client: This is the brief, see you later. Been there.
  3. I believe pricing is a formula. Entry Price + ( Variable Price * Value) Entry Price is the cost of the basic stuff that you do with every project, no matter the project is (of course projects under the same category). For example, if you do logo design, your entry price should cover you going from and to the office, firing up the PC/Mac/Potato, your average* cost for electricity, internet fees, etc. Variable Price is an hourly based pricing, you can check the universal average hourly rate of logo design and multiply it by your personal rate (For example if you are new designer with a small expertise, your personal rate should be from 0.8 to 1.2, if you are a level 999 designer your rate will be 2.0 or above..). Value is a multiplier too (x1, x5, x10,..) based on: 1- The value of the client. Doing a logo for Nike is not the same as doing a logo for your butcher. 2- The value of the product you are making for the client and the risk you are taking. How important is the logo for the client? What if the logo fails? What will your client lose if the logo is failure, and how will it impact you, etc. So the price is = Entry Price + (Hourly rate * personal rate * value). * Average: how many projects you can handle a month and how much fees do you have, divide this by that.
  4. First: You should hide his username. Second: Buyer requests are only seen by sellers, so he is not being hired, he is hiring. Third: Maybe he needs a hand on a project he is working on, that's why he is looking for another designer to help him.
  5. I can make a motion graphics animation to introduce yourself and your work, with a voice over. Not necessarily a sample video with subtitles.
  6. I didn't receive a rejection email, and I can't edit my application. My application was submitted late 2019. I don't think I will receive the approval or rejection now.
  7. Hi, I submitted my application to Fiverr Pro on Oct 11 2019. It says "0 of 0 tasks complete", and I can't add supporting documents. Since then, I didn't receive any update from Fiverr about my application. My question: Can I apply again to Fiverr Pro? Thanks
  8. I am running an i7-9700K, 32 ram, 2 Tb SSD, 4 TB HDD, 8 TB external HDD, 1080Ti FTW3, triple monitors, razer cynosa keyboard and cooler master mouse, and a mini wacom. I am waiting for the perfect moment to change my setup, I need the new ryzen with at least 64 ram, if not 128, and I aim to put my hands on a 3080Ti.
  9. A very challenging project and a very generous client. 😁
  10. Before writing a proposal: Make sure you are interested in the project, and make sure the budget specified by the buyer is on your safe range. For example if the budget is $100 for a certain job, and you usually do that job for $120, then the budget is in a safe range. If the budget is ridiculously low, don't send a proposal (obviously). Make sure you have read the request, and make sure you have seen attached files (if there is any). Make sure you can do the job. While writing a proposal: Don't start your proposal with "Dear buyer", "Dear Sir/Madame", or "Respected buyer" etc.. It's annoying, say "Hi" and move on. Introduce yourself briefly, and if the buyer is seeking a logo designer, tell them you are a logo designer, no need for listing all your "skills". In two or three sentences, describe what and how you will do to complete the project. No harm in reading the request again. Make sure you are writing proper English, use proper verbs and sentences. No one is perfect, but good grammar means good communication. If you find something unclear in the request, ask about it. This means you did read the request and you are into the project. Don't offer unlimited revisions, you are not a slave, and we both know you can't physically offer unlimited revisions. Write "I will work for you until you satisfy 100% (No extra charge)" on a paper and set it on fire. Mention a useful comment about the attached files (if there is any). Don't offer low costs, you should put a fair price for you and for the buyer. Be reasonable. If the buyer wants a job done for $100 and in 10 days, don't offer him to do the job for $10 and in 1 day with unlimited revisions. The list can go on but I have a cat to feed. After writing a proposal: Move on with your life. Don't stop improving your skills and portfolio. Don't use an extension to refresh your browser to stay online 24/7. Don't put all your hopes and dreams on that job. Don't send 10 proposals daily just because you can. Only send proposal to project you are interested in. My cat is screaming, I have to go.
  11. What if you have a client from outside of fiverr, discuss project outside of fiverr, but place the project in fiverr?
  12. I had problem few weeks ago that I can't find my gig when searching with keywords, or even in the category page. But it fixed now.
