To all sellers: My solution for buyers' failure to read your gig's description


I see a lot of sellers complaining on this forum that the buyers do not read their gig’s descriptions.

I suggest doing three things:

  1. Creating smaller gig descriptions

    When buyers see a long gig description, they tune out. I know you have a lot to say, but less is truly more. The longer your gig’s description, the less chance the full description will be read.

  2. Putting more into your gig’s video

    Put more details into your video. Videos certainly get watched more than descriptions are read.

  3. Turning on your live portfolio for ALL your gigs

    Turning on your live portfolio will certainly show potential buyers what they will get when your previous buyers showcase your work.

    Finally, in your shorter gig description, put in real uppercase “PLEASE CONTACT ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS”.

    I have less misunderstandings with my buyers lately from using all of these suggestions.

Good suggestions, I will try them.

Thanks a lot Bruce

Merry Christmas and a very happy new year 2013

I also forgot to mention that I cannot wait to do that video with you.


Neither can I! I am desperately waiting for my Mac to get fixed.


Did you see that kid with the 60K? He has 32 orders in the queue for YouTube views. I never saw a gig that high.

some buyers even don’t know what they ordering, after the order delivered they just easily reject it
