    For help, please start by reading all the threads on the forum starting with the very first thread.

    You can find that clicking on DISCUSSIONS>scroll down the page to page numbers>go to last page available.

    Start reading from there, forward. If you do that, you will be investing in your Fiverr business, and positioning yourself for success.

    You have to be patient at first and do as much as you can to promote your gigs. it could take weeks to get that first order.

    My advice : be workaholic on the beggining. I start making 5 logos for 24h, now i’m making them for 2days, later i will make 3logos for 2 days ( i give you only examples ) and that’s how you can get orders, and i think that’s the way how you will “work out” your offers.

    Sometimes that happens to me too…But I kind of like that becoz these days I I am a little bit busy with my real life things….

    You can do some promoting…and check if your gig description and presentation is competitive.. :)

    Remember you are devaluing the product by doing that! You may as well just offer half the rates and get more work that way!

    Away from the general advice let me help @art_rocks with something more specific: you need to at least show what you can do. Try adding examples showing your skill in transforming photos into popart not just a very general popart image. As a buyer I might try somebody with no reviews if I liked their work, but at the moment you’ve got nothing other than a claim of what you can do.

    I think that goes for all gigs, no proof = a big gamble on the buyers part

    I’m sure I answered this before but don’t see my comment, so unless this is a duplicate and I’m repeating myself, here’s a few suggestions.

    1) Get yourself a proper profile pic rather than the generic sheep. Since you offer popart, why not do one of yourself? That will be the best promotion you can do.

    2) I agree with everyone saying have examples of your work. I can promise the earth but if there’s nothing to show it’s true, I think buyers will look elsewhere.

    3) Once you have done 1 and 2, be patient. Getting sales takes time and building a reputation takes longer. If you have talent, it will become apparent.

    @art_rocks Give it some time. Orders will come. I’d suggest making your proposition just a bit more descriptive. Have ‘I will draw a picture of you in pop art style for $5′ instead of ‘I will make a pop art for $5′. Also, add some illustrations of your work like 4/5 drawings of stuff you did. Please change your profile picture from the default sheep. You’re an artist. Show us your skills!!

    Make a …VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO
    /done

    If you cant make a proper video showcasing your gig , get someone else to make it for you. Just be sure to have a clip of yourself saying “Only on fiverr I do this….” — Then bambambam photos of your work (if you’re an artist).

    Without a video , you can expect maybe one sale a month if you’re lucky. Especially if it’s your first sale. No video=Few sales
