I’ve been looking at Fiverr gigs and sending inquiries to different Sellers for a project I’m working on. By far the worst response I’ve gotten is: “Hello! Thank you for your message.”
That’s it. No follow up, no comment on what I’ve asked them to do, not even an indication as to when I might get an actual response. And this was from multiple sellers, not just one. Some have been sitting like that for over a week!
I understand that you want to keep your response time low, and that’s fine, but you need to give your buyers a more substantial response than this. Even if it’s a canned copy/pasted “I’ll be with you within the next 2 days” response, it is far better than just leaving it at “Thank you for your message.”
After being left hanging for a week with no follow up response, I no longer want to work with some of these Sellers at all. That is not the impression you want to leave on your Buyers!
Give your Buyers a reason to wait for you rather than a reason to move on to your competitors.
