Could someone review my Gig?


Hey, i’m new to Fiverr.

I’ve recently created a gig on Video Editing, i’ve been doing this kind of thing as a hobby for almost 4 years now and i’m just looking for some freelance work.

Would someone be able to have a look at my Gig and see if some improvements can be made?

Any feedback is highly appreciated, thanks!


Dear Bethany:

I took a quick look at your profile:

Your profile image: I suggest A/B testing with other photos. This one is fine, but you kind of look like you’re posing for an article about your band in Rolling Stone.*
Your log line: No suggestions.
Your profile text – note the edits:

I’m a student aspiring to be a professional Video Editor. [Your text is you-centric – I suggest going back to the drawing board to discuss your specific skills, how they benefit the Buyer, and that you are here to help the Buyer] -Bethany

Search “blond” on the forum to understand why Buyers may doubt you appear in your profile image.

All your gigs should have 3 images, 2 pdfs, and so on…

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

Good luck,

If you take the time to earn your Autobiographer Badge, particularly adding a link to your Fiverr profile, other forum participants will be able to easily view your information.

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.


*Which is not to say you couldn’t have an awesome solo career. I’m not suggesting that. I mean I don’t even know whether you can sing or play an instrument, but if you can do those things, you could very well make it as a solo act. On the other hand, some people prefer to work with a band. Maybe you could go the Joan Jett route and have a backing band. Bethany and The Band Boys. Whatever… You do you!


Thankyou so much for the feedback! I have changed my profile image and am about to begin writing a new description.

I searched ‘Blond’ on the forums but I am unsure of what you had in mind for me too see.

Also I am not entirely sure what else to have images and pdfs on.

I will look into making a video of myself, hopefully i’ll be able to convince myself to stand in front of a camera. Although I feel like people may realise my age (15) if I did provide this video. Which I think people may see as a turnoff.

Again thankyou so much for the feedback,


Dear Beth:

If you prefer to be called Beth, you should probably use that for your profile text.

Here’s a sample post:

Hi - I’m new to Fiverr. First thing I noticed right off the bat is that there are so many gigs by fake accounts that say they’re in United States and have a blonde haired, blue eyed account picture, and you can tell by reading their account profile that they are NOT American, have HORRIBLE English, and are obviously just using it as a ploy to have people click their accounts. I found this at first when I was looking for a Virtual Assistant on Fiverr to help me list my Trading Cards & other Collectibles on eBay. I started reading descriptions and were blown away at the horrible English - I specifically want an American or Filipino (because they speak awesome English) to help me write descriptions etc.

If you log out of the forum and log back in, your profile image should be updated here.

As far as pdfs go, you might talk about what you know about editing in more depth. (I admit the pdfs might work better for a writer or a graphic designer – but you could make the movie posters for the videos you plan to edit. Also, don’t forget you can add FAQs.)

As far as your age, I suggest you read the blog for success stories. There are plenty of other teens who have enjoyed great success on Fiverr.

You should watch other videos by Top-Rated Sellers for inspiration, and don’t be afraid to do the video over and over until you find the one that works for you.

If people react badly to video in which you appear, you can always go back to your first video. Try different things to see what works.

Good luck,


Ah thankyou, it is now updated.

I like the idea of explaining what I know in a pdf. I haven’t yet had the chance to do anything of that sort yet, I actually think I would enjoy writing it.

I’ll certainly have a look at Top-Rated Seller’s for some inspiration, however can’t seem to find how to locate them.

Thanks again,

  3. In the lefthand column under “Refine Results”, choose your preferred category.

  5. Rinse and repeat.

Good luck,
