From the love of this community that I paused all my work to write this.
Sellers, PLEASE read the buyer request BEFORE offering a proposal, if you don’t already know why, here is WHY;
1- The client will 100% know if you read the requirement or not. He will never hire you if you didn’t spend 1 minute reading his request.
2- The client will never hire a copy/paste seller with a generic proposal.
3- The client needs attention, if you don’t win his attention you will not be hired, and you will not win his attention with a generic proposal.
4- The client is paying money for the job, make him see you are worth it and you are interested in his project.
5- Saying that you are interested in the project is not enough.
1- READ the request, SEE the attachment.
2- No brief is 100% clear, find something to ask about.
3- Think about your strength and weakness, tell the client how you will succeed in your strong area, and how you will overcome obstacles.
4- Suggest something.
5- Explain your workflow.
1- Don’t copy/paste offers.
2- Don’t make a generic offer.
3- Don’t share your past work if it doesn’t match the request.
4- Don’t offer a 1-day delivery when you can’t do the project in 1 day, especially if the client offered 10 days delivery. You and the client both know it can’t be done in 1 day.
If you want to be hired, be professional. And by “professional” I mean:
- Only send an offer for the project you can actually do.
- Don’t beg the client to contact you.
- Don’t outsmart the client.
- Don’t trick the client.
- Don’t offer 100% refund if the client is not satisfied. The client will know you can simply refund him 1 hour before the deadline.
What could go wrong with a bad offer:
- A client may actually hire you, turns out you can’t do the job, order cancelled, bad rating.
See what the client sees:
Go spend $7, make a simple request, see how sellers will rush you. Be the judge and you will improve in your offers.
