The buyer requests section (https://www.fiverr.com/users/YOUR_USERNAME/requests) is a great feature to find buyers ready to purchase, just waiting for the right offer. It’s especially popular amongst new sellers and can be a really great tool to help get those orders rolling in.
However, with seller responses limited to 10 per day, you need to be selective and mindful in which requests you respond to.
So, today I’m asking two questions:
1. What current information within a request makes you decide if you submit an offer or not?
2. What information would you like to see added to requests to improve your ability to decide what you should submit to?
- Seeing the amount of offers a buyer has already received is vital for me. It’s all about the numbers game. If a buyer has received 100 offers, that’s only a 1/100 chance of being selected, as opposed to if a seller has only received a handful. Personally, I won’t submit on any offer with over 20 previous submissions.
- In regards to information I would like to see added. The ability to see a buyer’s request history. i.e. “20 previous requests/15 selected”. If a buyer had a low ratio (like 20 requests and only 1 selection), I probably wouldn’t use my limited submission on them, as they don’t seem to convert.
I’d love to hear the thoughts of everyone else. Please keep this thread related to improvements on the information displayed/available only - not in regards to improving the section as a whole (such as removing spam).
