► Be timely, be fast when responding to buyer messages. Some buyers do hate when they do not get a reponse after sending messages for a while
► Always thank them for contacting you as this might seem to impress them at first
► Always have a sample work to showcase to your buyers apart from the ones you have on your gig. Some buyers like to see previous jobs done by that seller.
► Always ask for their budget. Do not jump to conclusions
► Never insult buyers as this can lead to the buyer reporting you can you can end up getting flagged.
