So while checking one of my gigs recently, I noticed that the number of favorites it has is actually 6 times the number of reviews it has.
This got me to thinking - have 250ish people looked at my gig, thought “yeah, I am really going to need that so I will bookmark it for later” and then never come back to me!?! If so, how can we change that; how can we get those people back again?
I then had the thought that perhaps there could be some way of Fiverr following up on those for us, sending a reminder every so often or whatever.
After that, I got to thinking, Imagine if I could send those people a “special offer” message saying they will get the service 20% cheaper, a bit faster or with an extra something included. I think for many services, that could be a real winner.
Of course, there are spam-ish/abuse hurdles to climb over with any of these approaches BUT, if it was limited to certain sellers by level, total sales figures etc, it could cut back a lot of spam. It could also be limited in that we could only make an offer like that every 2-3 months for each gig. Only people who had favorited it would receive it and an opt-out would be available to the buyer. Buyers would only get this once etc.
Just a thought for those of us who want to be busy all the time and are prepared to try new things to make it happen.
Edit: Just thinking - Imagine if Fiverr did send out something like that and I got 200 orders within a day! Hmmm, maybe it needs more thought - some sellers have 100k faves on gigs
