Hi to this beautiful community, since it is my first post on these forums! I would like to contribute with a topic as title describes. I’d like to add that I’m into content writing.
Getting tips as as a seller, when you deliver your orders is something I really love. It showers me with positive energy, it is a sign of recognition of my hard quality work. It is a pleasant surprise that boosts my efforts and strengthens the bond between the seller and the buyer.
Since 80% of my buyers are returning buyers, I figured out few factors that help you get tips. Here they are:
Communication is key! It is absolutely crucial to any great result. Understanding clearly what the customer demands and for who you are working is so important. A good communication with low response time will create an environment for a cooperation that can last long too. Clear pre-order requirements is a must too.
2. Go the extra mile
Usually when I got time and inspiration, or when the topic has potential, I sometimes communicate with the buyer to inform him that I’m willing to write more words since I can’t deliver him something less than I can. This is of course with a disclaimer that it is “out of charge”. Most of the times, recognizing and appreciating the extra work, buyers will offer to tip or buy extra gigs.
3. Fast delivery
Provided you got the time, delivering a custom offer 15%-20% faster than the deadline is something that usually brings tips.
4. Show genuine interest
But, don’t “Tryhard”. Showing genuine interest, besides the business part, is a more humanitarian approach that sometimes is recognized. From big companies to, small companies, people these days would like to hire someone who they can trust. There are always the strictly business customers but there are customers who want a long lasting partnership. To win tips, you must show interest.
I hope I helped a little bit by adding these tips. Getting tips it’s not about the money, although frequent tips can me respectable source. Getting tips it’s about the feeling, the recognition you are getting that fuels your efforts.
