well if you are new seller. its hard to get direct order for first few days, buyer request option can be a great source for you to get some orders ! but as you can see maybe in a single buyer request there are 40/50 people applied before. how can you make your request special to get attention of the buyer, and how can you get 3 to 4 orders minimum from buyer request thats the question
well i would suggest you some tips to apply, as i was doing this for long time (i dont send buyer request anymore. or do not get time to send as have lots of works already in the list everyday, but when i see sales are dropping i always do that. hope it might work for you guys too)
- dont send copy pasted request to everyone
2)take your time read the description and write to the buyer and include the keyword buyer use on their description, in alternative way
- you can mention there name at the beginning ex. : Hi David. I have seen you are looking for …when you mention the name it helps to get that persons attention, I have seen lots seller start with HELLO SIR, specially seller from Asia, i would suggest you Dont use Sir, use direct name, trust me no one will get offended . I prefer friendly environment with my buyers, if you get friendly and he will come to you again and again, maybe 1 order does not work well for the buyers, but still you can be sure, you will still get a good 5 star review
4)add some special requirement that you are providing with your offer. just dont tick mark the box that gig box are showing while sending buyer req , write it in list in your offer ex: 3 designs, vector, copyrights, unlimited revision, money back etc
5)choose the right offer, as its only 10 everyday. use wisely! dont send 1st 10 or 15, go through 1st 50 request at least!
it might take little time. but i am okay with it,
do not choose some offer that has only business name. find something that has proper description. like someone name David and asking for logo for his eagle fitness club! you can start like : HI DAVID . HAVE SEEN YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A PRO LOGO FOR YOUR EAGLE FITNESS, I WOULD BE GLAD TO MAKE THE DESIGN FOR YOU,… …when you mention the person and business name in 1st line . that definitely will grab his attention. trust me. and then write other things
try to make a free online portfolio if you are new and does not have enough design that buyer can check in your gig, lots of buyer just place order when some design impress them. not necessary they have to like all of your design, maybe a single design grab their attention and boom, you can have dozen of free site online ! just make one free portfolio and add 50 designs as a sample , and paste the link in your buyer request. and dont force them to go and check, try to be polite, you may write, IF YOU LIKE TO SEE SOME OF MY ORIGINAL WORK BEFORE YOU PLACE THE ORDER, YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME TO CHECK MY PORTFOLIO FROM FOLLOWING LINK! then paste the link. make the link short using some online url shortner, cause the text box has limited letters
and some people just post their own gigs link and asked other seller to visit on this link and he wants something like that to be designed, dont waste your important buyer offer on those crap, and i would suggest you not to do that to get some free views , you will get blocked today or tomorrow for surE!
Hope it helps you guys ! works for me always!
