What You Need To Ask The Buyer Before Starting Work

We’ve noticed that most sellers on the site don’t provide “Instructions to the Buyer” in their job settings.

We highly recommend that you do because it will make transactions much faster, so you can get and handle more jobs and in the end – earn more money.

But aside from asking the basic information that you need to do the job, there are three things that you can further ask, which will help you make your work output better.

Imagine this, if you do a great job, then you’ll get good feedback and high ratings, and the buyer will more likely order from you again and even recommend you to his or her friends. And the result of course, is more money for you.

So remember this, to really serve your customers, you can ask these 3 things:

1. What is the goal of the project?

If your job is writing articles, then ask where the article will be used for. If it’s as a blog post in a business website, then you can write it in a tone or style that fits the existing content of the site.

If the article will be used for SEO, then you can adjust your work to include good keywords and phrases apart from the ones that the buyer may request.

2. Who is the target audience?

Knowing who will consume your output is important because it will help you customise it according to their preferences.

For example, if you’re designing a Facebook Page cover photo whose fan demographic are young women, then you can include relevant images and feminine colors to the design.

3. What is their product and why do their customers love it?

Most, if not all buyers on the site are entrepreneurs; and the tasks they’re outsourcing to you will most likely be used in their business. So take time to know what their business is, and learn about their value proposition to their customers.

When you do this, not only will the buyer feel that you care about the growth of his or her business, it will also help you in leveraging their products’ strengths into your work output.

If your job is to manage a Facebook page of a business whose value proposition is affordable but quality bags. Then you can perhaps, come up with money saving tips as status updates for the page. The fans will love that because after all, most of them price-conscious individuals.

These are just three of the many other questions you can actually ask the buyer. Try to go beyond the normal specifications to get your job done and learn something more about their goals, market and products.

Not only will you do a better job than other people, you’ll also make the buyer feel that you truly care for them.
