Any suggestions are welcome.

Why so?? I just asked a question

You asked for feedback? I gave it to you.

Most of what you’re doing is stuff people can do on Wordpress for free and it takes a few minutes or less. I asked why someone would hire you to do something they can do for free in a few minutes or less?

That’s feedback.

Also, the tool you’re using just provides analysis – a report. It doesn’t actually change your website. So your gig is really misleading. You make it seem like you’re correcting the problems with that tool, but the tool doesn’t do that. It writes reports on your performance.

Also, there’s no way you’re offering this legitimately. Either A or B.

A. If this is the report, White label reports come with the Gold or Premium plan only, which is $150/month – well over. In your gig you’re not using white label. You’re taking screenshots. That’s not allowed. You can’t use that for third-party commercial use.

That’s also feedback. People can see when software is being used improperly.

You’re not speeding up websites, as your gig says. You’re providing a report with recommendations about how to speed up websites. See the difference?

OR

B) You’re using the free plugin. And as I said earlier, why would people pay you to install a free plugin?

No. I guess you took it wrongly.

I am using those screenshots as I have done the optimization for those websites. (Yes, I am not aware that screenshot part)

And with the help of the GTMetrix plugin people can check the load time before taking my services and thereafter.

My services are for improving the load time of the website (if you seen the full description of my gig.)

And further I clear there is nowhere I have mentioned I will provide reports only.

I’m newbie here, i also need a feedback

And not everyone know how to optimize load time with the help of plugin because there are only few knows about technicalities. Otherwise in no time one will break their website

“And further I clear there is nowhere I have mentioned I will provide reports only.”

You’re not getting it. I KNOW you’re not saying that. That’s my whole point. I’m saying it looks like all you do is a report but claiming it is more that.

Whether or not you do actual optimization is irrelevant. Your gig LOOKS like a scam to a trained eye and it’s perception that dictates orders. You mentioned that tool is how you do the gig. Well all that tool does is create a report – that’s what people see when they Google it. Unless a seller happens to see that they also have a Wordpress plugin that does more, they are going to be suspicious.

You haven’t truly explained in the gig what you use to fulfill the actual optimization and that makes you look suspicious. People will assume it’s something for free they can do themselves. They want to know what they’re paying for.

Nice gig. …

Thanks, I’ll take care of that it is looking irrelevant as third person can see it better. I appreciate your feedback.

You’ll upload and activate the plugin the same way any other Wordpress user would. There’s no special process for this plugin that prevents risks of using open source… Unless you’re saying the plugin itself is risky.

There is no technicality to what you’re doing. You’re just uploading and activating a plugin.

There are several situations actually, a lot of people are not tech savvy and on simple things that other people will do in 5 minutes they get stuck for hours.

We can’t say that gigs like that can’t be profitable, when we see how people are using wix logo maker to create logo in 5 minutes and they have sometimes 30+ orders in their queue

And website speed optimization is not the thing that can be done in 5 minutes, believe me that:

✓ Defer Parsing Javascript
✓ Minify HTML, Javascript & CSS
✓ Combining external Javascript & CSS.
✓ Enable Compression
✓ Leverage Browser Caching
✓ Lazy load images
✓ Optimize and scale images
✓ Reduce Page Request
✓ Optimise website Front-end
✓ Reducing Page Size

What he offers can’t be done properly with plugins in most cases

P.S. but I must say profile is looking pretty like a scam lol

I never said SEO can be done in five minutes. Don’t twist my words. You know very well that I said uploading the plugin is what can be done in a few minutes.

You don’t need to be tech savvy to upload a Wordpress plugin. No one gets stuck for hours doing that – come on.

“What he offers can’t be done properly with plugins in most cases” – Exactly. That’s my point. He’s saying he’s using that program to do those things, but that program doesn’t actually do most of that: the website version or the plugin version. So if he’s using something else to do the extra work, he needs to change what he wrote. Otherwise buyers will be suspicious. He’s saying he’s using a program to do some things that the program doesn’t actually do. That’s all I’m saying.

I mistaken I thought that he is doing SEO, but he is doing speed optimization which is related to SEO but anyway

I don’t twist your words I replied to this:

“Let me get this straight: this is a service that people can get with a few clicks for free (I’ve done this myself and gotten all of the information you share in your gig), but you want them to hire you to do a few clicks for them and then pay you for a screenshot of it?”

I don’t know what you was writing later, anyway no need to waste time on arguing

Back to the topic I think what he means with “speed up your website with gtmetrix tool” means that he will use gtmetrix to see what errors website have with loading speed and then based on gtmetrix results he will fix them

++

Under “PageSpeed” he have detailed informations about what needs to be fixed

"I don’t twist your words I replied to this:

Exactly, that thing you quoted I said? I was obviously referring to the installation of a plugin, not the whole process of SEO…

“Back to the topic I think what he means with “speed up your website with gtmetrix tool” means that he will use gtmetrix to see what errors website have with loading speed and then based on gtmetrix results he will fix them”

Exactly! This tool doesn’t fix errors. It just reports errors. His gig says he fixes errors with the tool. That’s my whole point.

If he fixes these things without the tool, then he needs to rephrase that and specify what tool he DOES use. Otherwise it looks bad.

I’m not sure why this is so hard to explain. He’s saying he fixes things with a tool that doesn’t fix things. It REPORTS what you need to fix. If he said he was just reporting what needs to be fixed, that would be fine, but he’s saying he’s using the tool to fix them…

You mentioned a plugin doesn’t do much of what he says he fixes using that tool. That’s exactly what I’m telling you.

He’s saying he’s using a tool to do some things that tool doesn’t actually do. So if he’s using other methods, he needs to explain that. Otherwise people will look up the tool, see it doesn’t do what he claims it will do, and then think he’s a scammer. I’m telling him how to avoid looking like a scammer.

Can you provide some suggestions to make it look like a genuine one?

First of all remove “digital marketer” word from your profile :joy:, no offence but I would never trust any digital marketer.

Now without jokes, in my opinion you should change niche. SEO and related stuff are too competitive, you will wait years for first orders trust me

Oops. You’re right but many people do believe in digital marketer.
Undoubtedly this is a competitive niche.

Are you aware of any less competitive one?

I am I spent days on search analysis but that doesn’t matter as you need to find niche which will suit you.

Read that and don’t hesitate to spend few full days finding niches, in long term it will help you on Fiverr much more than anything else
