Hello! This question is for those who spend a lot of time on buyer request section (as a seller).
You all know that buyer requests are not shown all the time and even when they do, they merely last for 2 whole minutes. When you refresh the page, it says no requests found. Based on these two factors, my few inter-related questions are :
It is advised not to use the same request for each buyer request and the ideal buyer request is the one which is tailored and specific to the brief provided by the buyer in the description. Now, how can I write a 60-70 worded passage which is written in accordance with client’s brief plus specifying the deliverable items too (in the lower menu) in just 120 seconds?
When I reply to the offer by clicking ‘send’, that particular buyer request window closes and the page refreshes, and then that offer is gone. However, I can see my reply in the ‘sent offers’ section. So my question is, did that buyer receive my offer? Or have I just wasted my one of the ten offers for the day?
Even if I reply to the offer on time and that buyer request stays on the page after the refresh, it is already filled with 70-80 offers. If my offer is this behind, the buyer probably won’t even see my offer. Is there any way I can end up being one of the earliest responders while making my offer tailored to the description and not using a pre-made template?
Or is it like if there are already, let’s say, 5 offers on a request and I click on it to MAKE my offer too, would I be the 6th one that buyer will see? Or buyer will see it after the ones who already have SUBMITTED their offers.
Please answer these questions in details. Thank you.
