Pay attention to your messages


#1

Here’s a great tip for buyers that will help sellers too!



If you’re contacting a seller before ordering, great! But here’s the tip: if you’re asking for a service or product that you have to type in code so it doesn’t get flagged, the service or product isn’t allowed on Fiverr!



Here’s an example Q & A: “You do Y3lp review?”; "No, I do not do Y3lp review!"



Bonus tip, yay!: The gig description describes the gig! If you read the description first and it says “I do not post reviews”, you can save yourself the time and effort of sending a message and simply get on with your day!



Let’s all pay attention and make Fiverr an awesome place for buyers and sellers! :smiley:

I’d also add, that if you order a gig, keep the conversation in the gig area - it helps not having to go back and forth in two message centres. Cheers for your post!

Thank you. There is a buyer currently making the rounds with this exact request, maybe they will see your post! Good advice either way.



I’ll add to the tip chain. When you message a seller before ordering, try to be precise about your request and don’t write in textspeak. If you write “How much u charge 4 book?” and my gig description states my price by word count for blog articles, we are off to a rough start. Instead write “I need a 10,000 word e-book on starting a business.” That is clear enough for me to know if I can do what you want and possibly give a quote. If I can’t help (since my gig doesn’t mention e-books) I may be able to refer you to another writer and give them a heads up on your exact need.

Sometimes I think we're crazy for expecting buyers to read. I doubt any will read this thread since it doesn't say anything about 3 million Facebook likes for $5. :)

Probably the one who 'inspired' me to write it! This person didn't do it, but I always extra love it when they want to see my Y3lp account to make sure it's good enough for them!

I like your add-on tip (of course I do, it makes sense!) but asking them to read seems over the top, and now you want them to write too? Maybe we can start a Fiverr revolution! (Or at least some English as a Second Language gigs!) :)

Reply to @itsyourthing: “Oh my! You give 3 million likes to the my Facebook for 5$!?” :slight_smile:



The only word I had to type in code thus far has been p a y p a l simply because Fiverr doesn’t allow the word pay. I’ve seen plenty of Gigs though with 20-50 different ways of writing the same word (twitter or fb or ig). Who wouldn’t want to do business with someone who will give f a ceb ook likes? I agree with you when you write “the gig description describes the gig”. Good post!

Ain't that too hard for most buyers? xD

Your specific gig may be approved to use Skype on a a case by case basis. -

Reply to @renflowergrapx: Yelp. There was a buyer asking a series of writers for fake Yelp reviews.

Reply to @pankajkk: Will you please stop spamming this all over the forum!?!

Reply to @itsyourthing: Lol, funny how he didn’t post it on my forum question! You know, where I asked for help with incorporating Skype. :stuck_out_tongue: Please don’t post it onto my forum post, I’ve seen it now and the link doesn’t really go anywhere useful.

Reply to @philtabest: If there’s one thing I hate more than spam, it’s inefficient spam! :wink:



(I’m guessing he just wanted an excuse to post his username/link and look helpful at the same time without risking an extra profile link?. I don’t know, it’s beyond me.)



EDIT: It looks like the ‘intended links’ are being replaced with generic forum links. I can hear that conversation: “I know, let’s replace the spammy Fiverr user links with spammy Fiverr forum links - that’ll be awesome!”.
