Hello everyone, please I need a tip on how to propose for a job on buyer request. I write mine by stating my experience and letting them know that I can do the work. Is that a good reference. Someone should assist me. Thanks
The buyer requests are really a good opportunity to Grab and Get your First Order, To standout between the gigs here are some of my tips,
- Please Read The Request Carefully
- Be Good at Communication skills
- Show Interest in client’s Work, Ask Him question if details are not Complete or Clear.
- Give a Cheap Price(As You are a beginner,Your First Priority is to get orders and reviews)
- Write short but brief about the requested job, and let him know that you can do it, then tell him about your past work and a few links/examples.
- Tell Him You will Provide How much revisions,in what price and in how much time you can deliver.
- At last, Thank him in Advance and Wish to work with him
If you are sending a good ,straight forward and clean bid, you can easily attract the buyer, so stay to his point and be short and simple but brief
Disagree. I am a buyer and I can say for certain I do not select sellers that bid a ridiculously low price. It makes me think they do not understand my requirements or they didn’t read. I delete those sellers.
Golly, I hate this. Why do people tells others to do this. I only want to know what you can do for me not what you’ve done for others. A seller just need to reiterate what I wrote and tell me what you are going do - don’t waste my time telling me all about your education and who you worked for. That will have zero effect of me hiring you.
a cheap price means , a relatively cheaper according to nature of work,and at start you have to do compromise for the sake of your profile building, IF you Propose for example 5$ to build a website or any ridiculously low price, then thats really a bad idea.
I DONT KNOW what buyer are you , but if someone want a website to be done, i definitely send him a past similar links or a portfolio link, in that case he can easily judge my design skills, one or two link to related work is a good thing.
Only Non-professional buyers without inquiring the sellers capability do a job and get disappointed and then look for some else,
In recently started my gig and i am using such approaches and getting responses from requests, as i spent hundreds of hours on other freelance platforms, as far as my experience is, if you want to stand out in market when you are new to a platform, this is definitely a good technique
You misunderstood what I was saying. Giving buyers an examples of websites you’ve done is a great idea - how else would the buyer understand your capability.
I was referring to the sellers who spend half the write up with a canned response on where they went to school and statistics like they have all five star reviews, etc. Those things are annoying to read. I don’t want to know about anyone’s 5 star reviews.
Yeah You are right, I agree With you, that was what i actually saying.
Not a whole romeo juliat story,just some links, to show yourself
You can start precising what you really got. Tell the truth that you can do it or not. Simple
Buyer will definitely like it
