With thousands of sellers competing for jobs and perhaps twenty or more bidding on the same job, how do you make your bid stand out from the rest?
The fact is that each buyer is as different as each seller is, so there really isn’t a “magic formula” that works for every request. There are, however, some important steps you can take to increase the chances that a prospective buyer will consider your bid seriously. Here are ten simple tips for writing an buyer request:
- Read the project description carefully.
If the buyer doesn’t feel that you understand the project, you’re not likely to win the project. Besides, many buyers will ask for specific details that you need to be aware of. In fact, buyers often include a phrase that must be included in your description in order to have it considered. The bottom line is, you should always take the time to go through the description thoroughly.
- Keep your description clear and concise.
Remember that the buyer may have dozens or even hundreds of offers to consider. It’s very likely that every word of every offer isn’t going to be read. Offers with unnecessarily long descriptions may be skipped over completely. Don’t invite the buyer to ignore your offer by making it too wordy.
- Specify your terms clearly.
Using the project description as a guide, be as precise as possible in stating exactly what you’ll provide, how much it will cost, and how long it will take to deliver. Being vague about your terms implies a lack of confidence. If you’re not confident in yourself, the buyer won’t be, either.
- If the buyer contacts you through a private message, be sure to respond promptly.
Most buyers award projects within the first 24 hours of posting, so make sure to keep yourself available for contact.
- Stay in contact using fiverr mobile apps.
Install the fiverr mobile app and stay in touch with buyers on the go. Also, discover new projects and get your offer in quicker on the best new projects.
- Upload work samples on your gig.
Quality, not quantity, is usually the rule of thumb when uploading samples on your gig. Therefore, make sure that your samples are appropriate for the job and that they represent your best work.
- Protect your work.
A word of caution: Unless you’re prepared to give your work away, any samples you provide should bear a watermark or other means of identification or at the very least your name and a statement of copyright.
- Be competitive with your pricing.
Being competitive does not necessarily mean that you need to be the lowest seller. , but if your work is truly above average, you may find that buyers are willing to pay above average prices. On the other hand, if you’re relatively new to fiverr, you may need to establish a reputation first.
- Don’t oversell yourself.
A little self-confidence is a good thing, but over-the-top claims probably won’t impress anyone. Being honest about your skills will get you much farther than a lot of hype.
- Last, but certainly not least, proofread your offers before you submit it.
Is it written clearly? Are there misspellings? No matter any kind of project you’re requesting on, a poorly written proposal suggests a lack of interest and poor work habits. Neither of those is going to work in your favor.
