Hello Fiverr Community!
I recently just made a offer where i asked people to make a Blog Article for me though there was one small catch. I was only going to accept a genuine request from a Newbie Seller ( who was new to the platform) . The results i would say were shocking, but they really were not. I was expecting Newbies to show themselves better than the others. I think i was expecting too much from them. I left it there for 3 hours and in the end ended up with 146 Offers. I took a look at all of them and i split experienced sellers from New sellers.
I found A LOT of common mistakes from New sellers, but surprisingly included experienced ones. After reading all of them it felt like i was reading bot messages. It looked like I was looking at Copy Pasted content. Out of all 107 New posts only 13 were genuine with a lot of detail and with responses to what i asked for. This is a big problem to me, since people who are asking to get hired aren’t even dedicated to what they’re doing.
Here i am right now just wanting to give some Tips to any new Seller on this Platform
- Read the Buyer Request before making an offer, as a really common mistake i found by new sellers I didn’t even see any words i used on Request which most likely means they haven’t read it and just Copied a pre-made Request.
- Show yourself and what you offer in detail. The chances of you get chosen out of 150 people its never going to be 1/150, rather it will heavily depend on what you have to offer at a better price than others
- Don’t Beg for the job, REALLY serious thing, not everyone but a couple of people started begging, not only on the Offer but even on personal DM’s. This is the worst thing you can do and you will probably get ignored or have your chances to be chosen go to 0.
- Don’t make offers that you can’t take / aren’t your specialty. Buyer offers are shown after the Gig you have. This will not always mean that you will get something you can do. Sometimes you will get something on a language you don’t speak or get something which is close to what you do, but its got its own differences. Stay away from these offers, since as a new buyer you can only make 10 offers per day!
