Even with more than 100 offers sent to a buyer request, can I have a chance to get hired in Fiverr?
Great question. I actually use Fivrre to hire people for all kinds of services so I can’t speak from the seller side but I can as a buyer.
These are the things I look for as a buyer on Fivrre.
- How fast is the response? I always go with the fastest response time. I never wait for days.
- Fast communication. Don’t talk to 10 guys at the same time. Choose one guy and talk with him and answer questions quickly. If you can handle two, that’s okay.
- Make good custom offers. If I ask someone for ABC, Don’t offer DEF. Match the offer with the requestion and speed is of the essence.
- This is a numbers game. The more communication you have the more chances you will get the deal.
Never argue with your buyer
- Never argue with the buyer. I had one guy that was debating me. This isn’t a debate. As a seller, your job is to be nice and convince the buyer you are the right person. I don’t want someone telling me I don’t understand.
- Do not overcharge me. I had one guy do good work for me then he wanted almost double the next time around and for a much longer period of time. Needless to say, I went with the guy that offered less and did it in 1/3rd the time. That man has been with me for almost a year now.
- Americans have a different culture. Try to get in tune with the culture you are dealing with. If you are night and I am just getting up. The greeting is a good morning, not a good evening. I’m amazed at how much people do not try to relate to the customer.
If you are night and I am day, then you need to work night if that’s where your buyers are. My guys go to bed a 4 am. They work my hours not me working theirs.
Accommodate your customers, and don’t think you can overchange because we are westerners. The main reason I used Fivrre is because of the price and quality of work.
