The most important thing that Sellers forget is to resell other services or gigs to their existing customers, probably make them hire you on a monthly basis and get more sales.

Tips to Resell:

  • Complete the first Order successfully. Obviously then the Buyer would consider you for a Second Order
  • Ask Buyers in general about their business and what service are they looking for
  • Send Custom Gig to resell for new services 
  • Figure out if Buyer needs the same service on a monthly basis, you can then share Custom Gigs every month and make the Buyer your monthly customer
