Recently I noticed a lot of seller are trying to rate high selling by offering several gigs with the most cheaper price on the market - 5$ for Fiverr- , moreover, some others are looking for even to sell their work with less than that, by offering free exaggerated extra work for every sells they will do! Is this a clever method or a selfish one ? whatever,
the obvious purpose behind such behaviors is,definitively, being blindly more competitive ! am i right ?
The costumer is selecting, every time, the cheaper gig to buy !!! sorry, this is wrong, because “how the selection is done ?” is related to who is the selectors => for me, there are three main costumer categories that you will face allover the e-markets; each one has a very specific and particular goal : based on that, sometimes the cheaper price will be the key but in other cases, it could be the answer, after all, why your gig has been ignored. The categories are as below:
• Particulars: beginner bloggers, students, amateurs…
• Retailers: Online sellers, Scammers
• Editors: bloggers, journalists, authors…
For 1st & 2nd categories, the price will not be a problem as = 5 $ for Particulars & =< 5 $ for Editors is very suitable. But retailers pay more attention to prices so they will ask you for the most possible cheaper price to buy, so they can add their own profit and then sell it once again, in most case, without even read the content. And that will be in the best cases, sometimes, through fake requests, they will push to deliver free work (samples ; … ) PS: if that happens, then don’t be made, you are not naive but because you are not able yet to recognize who are you talking too
So before discussing prices it will better to start investigating with which category you are dealing with , and it is to you, to define what offer will be better to provide. the idea is : To whoever you will do the work, you don’t have to undervalue your efforts to sell it, as long as you are producing and replying to others’ requirement on a good way, believe that once what you are doing is unique on the market, only then you will be a remarkable seller with good result.
Finally, whatever you have, it can be sold, and judging people work still a subjective process depending to people knowledges and backgrounds, so having bad feedback from sellers does not necessary mean it is as they said in generally!
Costumers ( all categories included) are kings but to each one of them there is only a limited kingdom, so don’t be afraid to give your efforts the condign prices that deserve but also deliver only what the best you can do.
thanks for reading, hope that will be useful.
