90 % of advices, given by most sellers helpers require to make a huge numbers of gig with low prices ! i agree with them and i confirm that this is the classical way to get unstable very low-lying income !! are you here for that ? before been criticized, let’s think about it and explain why people take it this way,: admitting your gig is about translation for example from German to English and your are good on it, once your gig is published, you get immediately tow reactions from the market you’re targeting :
-> A good one is :) :) ; you will have an costumers number that need this kind of work is up to 10 per week; -> A scary one is :( :( ; there are more than thousand similar sellers to you - you are not alone and guess what, 50% can offer better job than you can do, the other 50 % can do a similar so, in the best cases, your chance to get selected by one of those costumer is 1/1000 = 0.001 time !!! I am sure no one want to be in such position.
The key to survive and rise is maintaining your business strategies by:
• Being different.
• Considering the long term instead of the short one.
• Being able to sacrifice stability and safety net.
I can mention the below three main tips for this purpose:
1- Personalize your Gig: the price, number of words, revision number and delivery time are the key (P,NW,RN,DT) ... those are your asset, but !!! pay attention having a capital doesn’t mean having a business as ; for our subject, only a cleaver plan and a good combination between (P,NW,RN,DT) will helps your gig to be more attractive then easy sold, while a wrong one will kill your business and make miss a lot of opportunities; this is important to take care of it and for that you are gonna need to think a little before you decided how to manage it. I am not in position to tell you what to do but whatever you are willing to sell, believe me, if you replied to the below “better” question on a good way, one by one, you will snipe your goal: o At what are you better than anyone else ? => identify your market. o How better are you ? => define your rank and level. o What price is much better accepted for your category ? => know your potential income. o What can make your offer better that others. ? => what to do about (P,NW,RN,DT) 2- Build a niche : niches , niches , niches… are marketer heaven but the concept is defined wrongly by a lot when they got niches as where to find something that no one else knows about or at least other marketers aren't already competing in , which is totally wrong; today nothing can be hide, and the internet is an open door for all but rooms are manifold; follow the below steps and then you will get &/or build easily your niche : o Start checking out the existing markets. o Analyze trends and offered products. o Get out your interests, skills and capacities. o Combine between the above three actions. o Let me know what is the most profitable niche you have selected for you. 3- Don’t forget the after sales assistance: tow simple rules: o don’t stop thinking by the end of day. o don’t cut communication once the payment Is done.
The costumer who applied you today will do the same twice at latest , and you want to be his first choose next time also, so only this cheaper after sales assistance can helps and will allows you to keep in touch with him, as a result keep this relationship between you stronger and more flexible, at the end, you will make them feel satisfied and thanks to the deal, you made up together, they will treat as partner not only as a strange seller.
