Hello, Iv’e been using Fiverr for about 5 months now. As a template, I’d use other top sellers to create my gig descriptions. In every listing I see on Fiverr, the words “PLEASE CONTACT ME FIRST BEFORE MAKING YOUR PURCHASE” is the very first sentence in the gig description.
Of course I follow the same and put that in my description as well because I’m thinking I want to have a conversation with my new client and determine a price that’s right for them. Or maybe I’m not even the right guy for the job, so why waste there time with them buying a service they might not need?
But today I was thinking, “how can I improve my gigs and offer better services for my clients?” And I thought about this phrase that we all use in the beginning of our gig descriptions.
Why exactly do we do it? What happens if the client chooses to purchase a gig instead of contacting me first? Will Fiverr give me the option to communicate with the client or change the price or does the gig automatically start at the gig price they choose?
I’m thinking if I understand how it works, maybe I can get rid of the phrase and streamline the process for my client.
Does anyone have experience working this way? Could you tell me how it differs from giving clients a custom offer?
