This is Shane from Eno8Design.
It has been exactly 30 days since we joined fiver. And here are our stats so far.
I gotta say that Fiverr is the best of the best when it comes to freelancing. Pretty simple process.
We love it!
So on the 1st month celebration we thought of sharing our experience and few tips with fellow forum members. Here’s what we did! (You should if you are not getting enough sales)
- Find a niche. (Ex: We thought of doing “Youtube Thumbnails”)
Not much to say in here! But this should be something you have to be really good at!
Sit and think while drinking your favorite coffee.
- Do your research.
Okay now you have a niche. Now all you have to do it search that niche on Fiverr and other freelancing sites.
And see how other sellers are doing it. Trust me! This is the most important part. The better you do it better the results are.
Don’t only look at successful sellers. Look at failures too! Just to avoid doing those mistakes.
- Decide a gig title
Now that you have done your research you have seen how other successful sellers name their gigs! Should be something short and straight. Like " I will design an OUTSTANDING youtube thumbnail"
Did you see that. I just UPPERCASED the most powerful word in my gig title. Fiverr only let’s only one word to keep in UPPERCASE in your gig title. So use that feature. Choose wisely!
- Write down the GIG description.
To be honest with ya, most people don’'t even read this. So no point in writing long paragraphs. Just be straight! Use POINTS. And try your best to explain why buyer should buy your services in few words. For example look at my gig description for “Youtube Thumbnails”
If you are a YouTuber you know how important that a thumbnail is.
Thumbnails are the key to the success of any video. I have hands on experience in designing YouTube thumbnails for years.

- Get your gig image done.
You have to be very careful with this one. Because your gig has to stand out within bunch of other gigs!
Just search “Youtube thumbnails” in fiverr. And you will see how our Youtube Thumbnail gig stands out!
Use an eye catching single color (or gradient) background. Text must contains few words.
Most important: Text should be readable. Big as much as possible.
Finally add something related. Like we added the YouTube logo.
This is easy! When you do your research make sure to note down 5 most powerful keywords.
You can find keyword tags at the very bottom of any gig page.
- Decide pricing
If it’s a new gig and charge is fair to you better to start with $5.Otherwise you can go for higher starting rates.
Use the 3 package option. Give the 3 packages some nice fancy names. Explain the packages short and sweet.
That’s it. Now you are ready to sell. Let’s look at the selling tips now.

- Getting your first sale
Obviously ain’t no body gonna buy your gig without any reviews. So how I’m even going to get my first sale?
The quick answer is “Buyer Requests”
This page can be found in you selling menu! Basically includes all the requests from buyers where sellers can quote up to 10 requests for a day! Don’t eat all your 10 slots at once. Check this page whenever possible and once there are new requests submit your quotes for the best suitable requests.
Make sure to use something short and sweet. Go an extra mile and offer some more work for the amount you are getting paid. Make them buy your new gig.
The communication is the powerful feature here. You have learn to communicate and make them buy your offer.
Sometime it might take days even months (As I heard) to get your first sale. But never ever give up!

This that you got your first sale. If you follow below 3 rules you are gonna be golder.
