I am a seller here on Fiverr, but I posted a buyers request yesterday to help one of my clients to get his project done.
29 replies to my request - and NOT one original response. I explicitly stated 2-3 things I need - NO ONE addressed that. Instead, I received paste-and-copy ‘ads’ most not even relevant to my request.
So - stop complaining, please. You’ll never get orders if you don’t READ, get personal with the buyer AND TELL him what YOU can do to get the job done.
READ the request, and don’t reply if you can’t really provide the service! You are wasting the buyer’s time and your own, for that matter.
If you are a match for the request, write a personal note (A NEW ONE EVERY TIME).
“Hi, I see you are looking for XX and XX. I believe I am the best person for the job because I can XX, YYY, and ZZZ.”
If the buyer asked you to include a keyword to see if you read his request - well, duh! Include it! Only 3 of the 29 requests I received added my keyword - a few brownie points there, I suppose.
There are many threads here on this forum about buyer requests and ‘how can I get more orders.’ Well, here’s a place to start.
