That was a joke lol.
As to your advice… while true, it doesn’t really help. It’s pretty evident you should try to get good reviews (not like it’s something you can control anyway, depends on the client) and make them happy (again, some people are impossible to please). But that’s not something you can actively do, and it doesn’t help you get orders if you get no contacts (which is the main problem for most people).
My advice in the field of “get good reviews and happy clients” is to try to stop automatic orders, insist on prior contact, and vet buyers carefully. You’ll want to turn down around 50% of buyers on average. They are not worth it. This applies to my field (creative), naturally. If your gig is an automated “pay me $5 and I’ll send you an ebook” or something that does not deliver an original product, tailor made for the client, then it doesn’t really matter who’s buying.
This ties in with a principle of selling services. There are two ways to make real money selling services.
1 - Sell cheap services at a high volume
2 - Sell expensive services at a low volume
They may seem the same from a purely mathematical standpoint (you’ll make the same selling 100 things for $1 or 1 thing for $100), but you have to factor in overhead. Unless you have an automated process (like the pre-made ebook), the 100 things for $1 are a far worse deal for you, because in addition to the work itself you’ll need to deal with 100 times the number of buyers, spend 100 times as much time on communication, deal with 100 times more potential cancelations and bad reviews.
In a platform like fiverr, if you are doing original work for each client, it’s clear that high ticket is the way to go.
