Any Tips to improve my Gig?


#1

Howdy Fiverr Community,

About 3 days ago I started my first gig on Fiverr and I am absolutly loving the responses i’m receiving. Since I am still experimenting with my Gig here and there, I was wondering if someone would like to take a peek and give me an opion about my gig. I would really appreciate this.

Kindly Regards,
Nick Beun

What do you mean? Can you be more specified?

Is my gig from bad quality, if so how can I improve it.

Dear Nick:

I took a quick look at your profile:

Your profile image: I recommend a color photo of your smiling face LOOKING AT THE CAMERA.
Your one-line statement that appears on the profile page, directly below your user name: Meh.
Your profile text – note the edits:

Hi, I have over 3 years of experience with graphic design and [what kind of, if other than graphic] development. -Nick

Try to make this stronger by talking about how your skills benefit the Buyer and the fact that you are here to help the Buyer.

If you look just below your user name on this page, you see that your location of Netherlands is already provided, so there’s no need to say it again.

All your gigs should have video, 3 images, 2 pdfs (for more samples and your business policies), and so on…

Make a video of yourself talking to the camera, because this approach garners IMMEDIATE RESULTS. Include additional samples in the video!

“I will design a unquie” - “unquie” should probably be “unique”.

I suggest you reiterate your video and show a lot more designs in the time allotted. Take 5 to 15 seconds to greet the Buyer. Please note that you have the ability to set the “snapshot” of your video (see the IMGC thread below for screenshots of how to do that).

You need to clean up your English grammar, spelling, and punctuation throughout. Example, “logo’s” should probably be “logos”.

You need to learn to do keyword research and apply it to your gig titles. For example, you could buid one gig around Adobe Illustrator and another around Adobe Photoshop. I suggest you make commercial use a gig extra.

Until you reach Level 1, you should set your delivery time for the base package to 1 day. Increase delivery times as your volume of sales increases.

Your signature gig needs a lot of work to be viable.

Bottom line, you may have potential, but you have a steep learning curve ahead of you to make the best use of Fiverr.

Good luck,
Blaise

Be sure to read the Fiverr Terms of Service and to make use of Tools like the Fiverr Blog, Fiverr Academy, Fiverrcast, and Fiverr Support.

Engage your common sense. Not every suggestion here will work for you. You are responsible for your results, so you should test everything and adjust for your own best results.

I suggest you check out Fiverrcast episode 08: Working Through Language Barriers.

As a general rule, when I have time to participate in the Fiverr Forum and I notice a request like yours in the “Improve My Gig” section, I am willing and able to look at a Seller’s Profile and one gig one time.

I can give you a better level of assistance if you first work your way through the checklist below. That way, I won’t waste your one turn by advising you to follow items on the checklist.
Please study this thread: https://forum.fiverr.com/t/the-big-day-i-finally-ask-blaisefaint-to-critique-my-gig/104448 to better appreciate what I’m talking about here. It should take you a minimum of 4 weeks to make your way through all the material.

If you haven’t already read Strengths Finder 2.0 and taken that assessment, I suggest you do so, because it should give you the language to express your strengths and help you to brainstorm some gigs for which you are especially well qualified. Check out the writing of Chris Guillebeau and Tim Ferriss. By Josh Kaufman, I recommend The First 20 Hours: How to Learn Anything… Fast! and The Personal MBA. Also, you could read Influence by Robert Cialdini and Get Anyone to Do Anything by David J. Lieberman.

Here’s a thread discussing a specific example of a Buyer Request for which I created a gig and then asked for help improving that gig via the forum.

Howdy Blaise,

First of all thanks for pointing out a lot of things, the past days I have been trying to get the best content out of me. I’m planning on remaking a video where I show a lot more of what I have in store.

  • I changed my profile picture.
  • Changed unquie to unique (Such a terrible misstake. :dizzy_face:)
  • I changed my one-line statement to a simple quote (It still is related to designing.)
  • A new video will be coming up in the next few days.
  • Sadly enough I can’t put my deliveries on 1 day, mainly since I have actual work beside Fiverr.
  • I’m still designing examples for my signature gig, but it will become a lot better in the upcomming days.

Thanks for all of the tips, I applied most of them.
