If you are a new seller or one of those who bid in the Buyer Request section, you MUST customize every bid of your according to the buyer needs.
Got an order today through BR which said:
First off congratulations, out of 30 offers, you were the only one to actually spend time writing a customer response addressing my questions, as opposed to copying and pasting generic stuff.
Now the dilemma is that 29 people did not mind reading the description (SERIOUSLY!?).
So now my tips are (although they have been repeatedly mentioned on the forum, yet no one bothers about them. Or maybe those 29 and many others like them do not know that this forum EXISTS in the first place):
Read the whole description as the buyer has written it on purpose (for the seller to know if he is capable of work or not).
If there is an attachment, download it and view it prior to bidding.
Use words related to the specific work needed by the buyer. Also mention the content present in attachment so that the buyer knows that you have gone through his requirements.
You can make a sample template of your bid beforehand but modify it to fit the needs of the buyer whose work you are targeting.
Do it the RIGHT way and you will get sales.
