Always be prompt in replying.
Admin Note by FontHaunt: Nice old tip! If you got here from my tips post, you have a chance to make your first sale today. To have a chance of being selected, you have to have zero sales. Right now, go to the Improve my Gig category and find someone asking for advice on their gig. Check their gig out and give them some kind of advice, tell them if you like their gig images (or if not, why?) or some other advice. At the end of your reply to them, tell them to be as patient as a turtle. I will be watching for the secret word “turtle” and I will put your username in a drawing. If you win, I will buy one $5 gig from you.
