What truly is the essence of bookmarking service services by potential buyers and users?

I have noticed that a lot of users on this seoclerks site do bookmark my gig services as i do receive alerts on it on a daily basis. But over time, i have noticed that the users who bookmark my gigs hardly come back to place an order on it. Only about less than 20% do come back and buy from me; the rest, i wont hear from them.
So i want to ask this question; Is there any other reason why they are bookmarking the gigs? Or are they going for other gigs from other competitive sellers? Or do i need to contact them to remind them about my gig services?
Thank you

I think it's just something people do if they like your service or maybe want to buy it on another date. They sort of use it like a "wish list". However, like most things we bookmark online, after a while, people forget they have even bookmarked them. And when they return to the site to look for something. They'll perform a new search or browse the category of whatever it is they're looking for and completely forget to visit their bookmarked services page.

Talking of "Wish Lists". That could be a good idea for a new feature suggestion actually. So you could add the services you "wish" to buy on another date. When you are ready or have the money to do so for example. It would be different to bookmarked services though. Those are just services they have bookmarked for whatever reason. Either they like it but can't buy it right now. Or they are perhaps your competitors bookmarking it to check out how your sales/feedback ratings etc are doing since they last looked to gauge how much success you are having with that thing you are selling before they decide to start selling it themselves sort of thing.

Another good idea for a feature suggestion would be the ability to add things to your "Basket". Then when you are ready, you can check out and pay for all those things at once using one time payment. Instead of having to pay for them one-by-one individually. Something like that could increase the amount that people spend on here and would increase sales for sellers as well.

But it's like anything. Although a lot of people might actually bookmark your service. Only a small percentage of them will come back and buy it after visiting their liked services page. The same kind of math applies to most things in life. Although it can be a large amount of people that visit your site for example. Only a small amount of them actually convert into clicks, sales and clients.

That's my take on it anyway. What truly is the essence of bookmarking service services by potential buyers and users?

I bookmark quite a lot of services, but I buy a lot less than I bookmark. Often I will come across a service I don't need right now but it looks interesting and useful so I will bookmark it so I can come back to it when and if I am ready.

I also bookmark services while I am trying to choose which services I want to use when I am ready to buy a specific service. I will bookmark all the services that I am "shortlisting" before making my final decision. I do leave them bookmarked in case I want to go back and try someone else or another service in future.

So I can't exactly answer your question but hopefully my explanation of how I use the bookmarking service here will help you?

hmmmm,.alright, maybe there are many other competitors sellers offering the same services with me, so sometimes the buyers tend to go for them most especially if they are very cheaper for me. but i think everyone has different reasons for bookmarking sellers' gigs. so whichever may favor the seller, he should consider himself lucky.

Well I am not sure that means that other sellers are better than you. I honestly bookmark a load of services here. I don't buy much though. I had no idea sellers could see what was bookmarked and by who, now I feel a little self conscious knowing I have given all these sellers hope of sales coming in.

If I believe I might buy a service sometime I bookmark it so I can find it again, it is as simple as that. I just do so much more window shopping than I do buying.

Many bookmark services for future reference. If they are prospective buyers I do not mind that much, but I noticed that there are some who are my competitors. They bookmark my services to keep an eye on me I guess!
