Creating gigs [closed]

If you would like to provide a service on Fiverr, you first need to create a Gig. A Gig® is a service listed on Fiverr’s marketplace.

To create a Gig:

After you login, place your mouse over your username and click Selling > Create a Gig.

Note: If this is your first time creating a Gig, place your mouse over your username and click Selling > Start Selling and then Create a Gig.
STEP 1: Overview

In the Gig Title field, write a title up to 80 characters.
Your title should be short, clear, and to the point.
In the Category drop-down menu, select the appropriate category and then subcategory for your Gig.
In the Description field, write a description of your Gig up to 1,200 characters. Be as detailed as possible so buyers will be able to understand if this meets their needs.

Note: If you add a URL, only include URLs from the approved list.
In the Gig Metadata area, select the relevant criteria for each topic.

Note: This feature is only available for certain categories.
In the Tags field, add a minimum of three words or phrases that best describe your Gig.
Click Save & Continue.
STEP 2: Pricing

In the Delivery Time drop-down menu, select the amount of days it will take for you to complete your Gig.
In the Included Revisions drop-down menu, select the amount of revisions you include in your Gig.
Adding Extra Fast Delivery

You have the option to deliver your Gig extra fast and charge accordingly.

To set Extra fast delivery:

In the My Gig Extras section, select the Extra fast delivery checkbox and indicate how many days and how much money you will charge.

Note: If you select Extra fast delivery, the amount of days for the extra fast delivery cancels out the amount of time you indicated in your extra services.
Adding Extras

The number of extra services you can offer depends on your status; see Fiverr’s Levels. These fields are optional.

In the Add Gig Extras section, fill out your unique customized Gig extra. To add more extra services, click Add Gig Extra.

Note: For each extra provided, select the checkbox and fill out your extra service description. Make sure you select the amount of days it will take you to complete and for how much money.
Adding Revisions and Source File Pricing

You are able to better control requested revisions, while maintaining the buyer’s right to request revisions by defining your modification pricing. You can also charge for the use of your source file deliveries.

To set revisions:

In the My Gig Extras section, mark the checkbox next to Additional Revision.
Select the number of extra revisions, the cost, and duration per each modification.
To set source file pricing:

In the My Gig Extras section, mark the checkbox next to Source File.
Select the amount you charge for the delivery of your source files. If purchased, you cannot deliver your work without uploading the source files.

Note: The Additional Revision and Source File pricing features are available in certain categories only.
Shipping & Handling

If you provide a product, you can charge shipping fees.

Select the checkbox, and select how much you charge to a specific country and then to everywhere else.

Note: If you have multiple orders enabled, you can select how much you charge.

Click Save & Continue.
STEP 3: Requirements

Tell your buyer what you need to start the order. You can define instructions for your Buyer as free text, a multiple choice question, or a file upload.

In the Requirements #1 field, enter the details of your requirement.
In the Answer Type field, select either Free Text, Multiple Answer, or Attached File.

Note: If you select Multiple Answer, answer fields will be displayed. Fill out the multiple choice answers you want the buyer to select. You also have the option to allow more than one answer.

If you require the Buyer to provide the information you selected, mark the Answer is mandatory checkbox.
Click Add.
When finished defining your buyer requirements, click Save & Continue.
STEP 4: Gallery

In the Portfolio Photo area, drag an image or click Browse and select an image.
Upload photos that describe or relate to your Gig. The photos can be samples of your work. Each image should be in JPG, JPEG, or PNG format, a minimum of 550 x 370 pixels, and up to 5 MB. The image should be owned by you. Do not use copyrighted images otherwise your Gig won’t be approved.
In the Gig Video area, drag a video or click Browse and select a video.

Note: This field is optional. We recommend that you mention your services are offered exclusively on Fiverr and make sure your video is no longer than one minute.
In the PDF Files area, drag a PDF or click Browse and select a PDF.

Note: This field is optional.
Click Save & Continue.
STEP 5: Publish

Publishing and Promoting Your Gig

Click PUBLISH GIG.
You will see various social networks in which you can promote your Gig. To promote your Gig, just click an icon and fill out the details.
Click Finish.
Notes:

As a new user, you can create up to 7 Gigs. Level 1 sellers can create up to 15, Level 2 sellers can create up to 20, and Top Rated Sellers can create up to 30 Gigs.
If your Gig contains a video, its status will be pending until your Gig video is reviewed. If your Gig does not contain a video, it will be labeled Active.
You have the option to share your Gig via Facebook, Twitter, Google +, LinkedIn, or by email.

One huge question… If I need to change some of the details of a gig I created, where do I go to edit the gig. I cannot seem to find anywhere to do that.

This “post” is merely copied from the Fiverr help section. Here’s the link:

http://support.fiverr.com/hc/en-us/articles/201500856-Creating-Gigs

Please do not copy content that you did not write, and then try to pass it off as your own. You are not being helpful, @haroonnaeem, you are plagiarizing content in order to appear helpful, thereby hoping to elevate your name in the forums.

This “strategy” could eventually result in stronger action against you by us mods, and the removal of your posts.

I’m posting this as a cautionary reminder to haroonnaeem, but also a reminder to everyone else as well. Please write your own posts. Do not plagiarize the content of others.

I’m sorry, this post only looked like haroonnaeem had written actual tips based on experience. He copied this info from Fiverr’s own help guides. You can check them at www.fiverr.com/support or make a new post in FAQs or Conversations.

For a hint, go to the page that shows all your gigs and it’s fairly easy to edit them from there.
