I know i am not a TRS or a lv 2 or even a lv 1 seller neither have i spent a decade on fiver i have been here for almost 2 months and i have had a great experience on fiver with buyers !! i know few of the points might have been mentioned before by other respected members but i just wanted to share few tips based on my short experience here on fiver!! (Only for new sellers like me …
Invest good time while sending offers
Whenever you see buyers requests never… just never throw your offers… Read the request in detail… very much detail… Think of a unique idea about the logo … take some time … check for any grammatical mistakes , any typos or anything of that sort… then send the request !! (No Hello Dear or Hello Sir/Madam ) Please … buyers mostly delete these kinds of requests … what you can do if you are sending requests from your laptop open the app side by side because the app doesn’t masks the name of the buyer and address the buyer with his/her name !!! And one more thing please dont talk like a robot talk like a human !! If you are concerned that you dont get buyers requests then please dont just waste your time whole day they come at specific times note the times daily when the requests come there are basically 3 4 times a day when there is a flux of requests !!
2.Always Invest in your buyers!!
Always talk nicely to your customers … and never ever indulge in any sort of argument with them … answer all of their questions very professionally!! If the order is completed and a buyer comes to you and tell you to do a little amendment … just a tiny bit that you know wont take you more than 10 minutes or even less never ever charge them for that they will definitely come back to you with another order/project !!! they will definitely refer you to their friends and you will get a lot more than what you originally invested (But beware of freebies please) A Genuine customer would always offer you something for that tiny little job but never accept it (you might think its strange but trust me it is a great investment)…
3. Gig tags !!
Please make sure your gig tags are as per your gig offerings !! if you are a logo designer you must research (SEO) that how or in what ways people can search your gig… use good search tags… if you are not good at it hire someone good at SEO to do it for you but dont take it light !!
4. Always Complete your deliveries on time!!
This is a very important thing !! i know in the starting you wont have much orders but the times will come real soon that you will have more than 15 -16 order in queue in one day (i had more than 40 orders in queue one day) !! if you cant complete your task in the specified time then take your buyer in confidence and get the delivery time extended but never ever get late without taking your buyer in confidence other wise he will cancel your order and you will automatically get a 1 star review!!
5. Never ask your buyer to give you five stars!!
I read few posts on this forum as well as on few other platforms … buyers really dont like it … this is the last thing you should even think of !! Please it is very unprofessional !! also it is against the fiverr TOS and you might get a warning !!!
Enough being said !! these are just few points that i wanted to share with you!! i will come up with another post with few other points as well real soon (the post was getting too much long )
