hey what’s up sellers!
I know there are posts worth a dime a dozen when it comes to fiverr tips but as a newbie seller, I gained some experience on how you should be selling on fiver. Please note that what works for one seller may not work for others. Here are the tips:
Value first, revenue later. Understood that as a new seller you are frustrated to see less to zero sales. Buthang in there. Provide value. Convince clients that you are the best and provide value when they order.
Gig videos are always helpful. Be yourself. Smile. Be confident. Buyers need to see how confodent are you in selling yourself.
Be human. Have your own unique xover photo. Not the one on social media. Should be professional but not the one shown on ID CARD. make sure you are smiling and reflecting confident in your photo.
Buyer requests are golden nuggets. That’s how I got my first client on fiver. Within 24 hours of publishing a gig aa a new seller on fiverr, I landed a client for $50. Yup! I responded carefully in his request and instead on tauting my experience I tols him how can I add value to his work. He responded back saying:
“You are the most expensive seller with the most expensive offer in my request but you seem to understand me and my business. Let’s proceed”
Customized requests. All sellers are unique. Focus on that uniqueness. And so are ALL buyers. Respond to every request with a custom quote. Every buyer has unique needs. Sont use a canned proposal with a copy paste offer. Focus on hoe you can solve their problems instead of touting more on your experience.
Don’t agree on everything. It is great to listen and agree to customers but you are not under any obligation to do a lot of things for $5. Unless you are really really desperate for a 5 star review go ahead and sell for $5. Otherwise if the work definitely invokes research and s fe hours, make sure thst it is competitive yet reflects on your time. If your client disagrees, be polite and give him reasons to charge him higher. If he still persists on $5 then simply dont agree because some clients are here to exploit. They keep on sagkng thst $5 is their budget as everyone is offering them servixes in $5 and why you in $10? Even if that means letting off of some potential clients dont worry, be patient as true buyers will definitely pay more for value.
Hope that helps!!
