If I put a bid up it's generally to hire, although I have had 1 job where I had no bids, and 1 where the project has been put on hold.
I am a serious purchaser, and generally know what I am looking for.
Anyone posting up a comment about the price I am prepared to pay being too low to attract quality responses will have their comments removed, and their bid removed. Every successful job I have posted has had this sort of comment, and I am frankly very annoyed as every job has attracted good people at the price I was looking for.
Bids which aren't prepared in good English will also be declined, as will bids where the brief has not been read properly, or the same question has already been answered on the bid or clarification board.
If you want my business:
Show you have read the brief and answer my questions - they are there for a reason
Don't make me look too far for examples of your work
If you can do other styles of work, show me examples of it, don't make me guess
Write a coherent bid in English
Don't tell me I won't get anyone - you may charge more but you can't speak for everyone else
