Hi, So I’ve been a seller on Fiverr for a long time. I have very good reviews but I’m not going to lie, some of them tend to do be late. I know you’re thinking “well extend your delivery time, be more responsible, etc.” even though I love selling on the site, it can be tough dealing with orders and going to law school, etc. I would love if there was a way I could send out a status update (you know, like twitter or facebook) to everyone letting them know that they may experience a slight delay in delivery so they can wait a bit, instead of cancelling their order and having a negative review on your profile.
I am sure there can be many OTHER useful ways to use status updates as well - tell customers what new project you are working on, advertising a certain day where you may be doing a price reduction on a gig so people will get excited and get updated on sales, etc, and even just being interactive with your customers in general is a great way to use status updates.
It would be cool if there was a way for Fiverr to put up status updates that can be sent to everyone with one click of a button.
Another idea I had was sellers having a “monthly” newsletter signup where people can put in their e-mails and
get monthly updates to. Perhaps I had a customer who bought a reading from me 6 months ago. But then all of a sudden they get a newsletter from me and think “oh! I should get a Psychic reading right now.” We probably can’t get access to those email addresses for obvious reasons but I don’t know lol.
Just some ideas that I would would be pretty cool to implement on the site instead of these “levels” stuff.
