I was wondering as now adays Buyer Request is become tougher and also spammy… As if a buyer requests there are so many offers for a single request, every one just sent offer, rather he can do or not.
My suggestion like wise Buyer Request if we have a CONTEST section, where a random buyer can open a contest regarding his needs, and all sellers can submit their designs etc. After a time limit he choose to work with 4 to 5 sellers and then finalize the design and Prize money is awarded between 1st , 2nd , 3rd.
Now here Fun thing like Buyer request every one cant send just offer. only people who know they can compete will send.
In this Category Buyer wll have to Pay a higher Prize money then normal gigs as there wll be so many seller and so many ideas (let fiverr decide their starting price to enter)
It will be useful for New Sellers who dont have any order so they can participate and if he is good he have the chance to win. but in Buyer request there is no chance as his profile is shown new arrival so very less chance but he is good.
There wll be a better poosibility to win contests and eposure and engage sellers, as for now seller have only one option Buyer request to get order if he is new other iis automatic, So it wll be a second option for Him.
OR May be There are contest for Every seller Badge.
Buyer Can have options “Open Contest For New Sellers”… “Open Contest For Level 1 Seller” … “Open Contest For Level 2 Seller”… “Open Contest For Toprated Seller”
and when any seller visit their contest page he can see participate only Contests related to his badge…
and we can think more about this idea and refine it. Mainly fiverr sellers wll be engaged Properly and they wll have the good opportunities for their Sale and exposure which is very much good for new sellers Comparing to just sent offer to Buyer request and wait wait wait despite ther are good at their work but cant Show their Skills.
Guys Need your Suggestions… What you Think…
P.s the idea was mainly related to Graphic Design category may be applied to others.
