I have seen several sellers on the forum talk about how they are getting tired when getting more orders. I was tired a few months back when I had 8 orders in the queue for my gig where I analyze a website’s sales potential in a video and decided to use a few tricks. After employing them successfully, I was able to deliver them quickly, accurately and all with positive reviews from buyers. This gig is to date my most successful gig.
I offer these tips to all new sellers who are burning out:
- Increase your delivery day number. There is nothing wrong with this and if you have a lot of positive reviews, buyers will still order.
- Communicate with your seller and tell them that you may not be able to deliver on time. One thing I asked a buyer to do was cancel an order (mutual) and then I did the gig for free before the buyer re-ordered. I then messaged the buyer and told her it was ready and if she ordered today, I would deliver today. That worked fine.
- Add another day to your express gigs if you do not feel you can deliver in 24 hours. Let’s face it, express gigs are stressful at times. You can always put it back to 1 day when the smoke clears.
- As a last resort, suspend the gig. Suspending gigs lowers your search rankings, so use it as a last resort only. Increasing the delivery time is a better strategy.
That’s it. Communication and time are your friends. Use them wisely.
