Can someone review my gigs please and advise me why I'm not getting any sales yet?

Here is a link to my gigs


Dear Thomas:

What name do you like to be called? Your customers want to know what to call you.

I took a quick look at your profile:

Run down the Improve My Gig Checklist: Improve My Gig Checklist. You’ve studied Fiverr Academy, listened to Fiverrcast or read the transcripts, studied the offerings on Fiverr in your niche, read What Color Is Your Parachute? and worked out your favorite skills, and so on, right?

If I started on this checklist for you…

Please understand that you are dealing with a global audience. As a proud US American I can tell you that I don’t know what a GCSE is. I don’t know what an RSA 1 is. I’ve never heard of the Southern Region College or Newry. I’ve heard of Cardiff, because that’s on Doctor Who.

I strongly suggest you minimize obscure references that are meaningless to people outside the UK and make more Doctor Who references, like “timey-wimey great big ball of string” or “reverse the polarity of the neutron flow”. If you insist on throwing out references that no one’s ever heard of, please be sure to spell out any acronyms the first time you use them.

Your goal in your copy should be to make the Buyer feel they know, like, and trust you.

Finally, your gigs seem to be all over the map. If you take the time to study Fiverrcast, hopefully you will receive guidance to help you focus your initial offerings, then add offerings that make sense based on Buyer feedback.

Ask yourself some questions:
Be honest: are you reliable and trustworthy, or are you scamming the Buyer with fake images for a gig you’re not really qualified to deliver?
Does the Fiverr Trust and Safety Team have a good reason to pull your gig?
Are you offering to help people cheat on school assignments?
Are you selling Minions videos or other intellectual property that you DO NOT OWN?
Are you familiar with the National Career Readiness Certification (US) or similar type certifications for your jurisdiction? US corporations need people who can certify for Gold. The ACT WorkKeys tie in nicely with the Preferred Skills portion of the WCIYP? Flower.
How can you demonstrate that you bring value to the Buyer?

Good luck,

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: 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.
