I’ve been on graphic design category here on fiverr and competition day by day is getting higher and higher. Lots of new people getting into that category and each one of them have to deal with some “beasts”. According my belief this is why “pro” category created, in order to separate the top from the rest. It is logical but it is tougher for a new seller tho.
_Let’s get into the point of this Topic. Many people are getting into fiverr as I previously said, start their gigs wait a while and get zero sales. They start to frustrate. Mistakes tend to happen afterwards and they don’t get it that this affects their probability to reach a sale. Personally, what I see and bothers me a lot as a seller, is the false use of buyer requests. _
What do I mean by false use of buyer requests? This mechanism was created so a buyer would post a job he/she wants, add the available budget and the desire of the delivery time and then waits for sellers to send their requests. This mechanism IS NOT for sellers to post their abilities and advertise their expertise. It bothers me scrolling half an hour reading seller posts in buyer requests category like “photoshop expert send me jobs, I am in need”. So please stop that. Additionally, I don’t believe this has a good outcome to your account. I surely believe this affects you in a bad way and not in way that can help you get a sale. Simply think, that category is only been seen by sellers. A buyer just post. He/She can’t send you a request if there is no gig in their account.
So my tip for sellers is DO NOT post your ad in “buyer request” mechanism.
Hope you liked my Topic, please share with me if that is something you agree with or not.
It says get offers from sellers and not get sales from buyers
