Can anyone more experienced than me throw some light on this? Today I found that the price of my ‘Explainer’ Voice Over Gig, in some search results but not all, had been raised by Fiverr themselves (nothing to do with me) from $10 to $25.
I really wasn’t expecting this and am scratching my head. Alongside the raised price my Gig now says in a green box ‘Customized for you’.
Is this a good thing, that they think the Gig is worth more than it was being sold for? Or is a bad thing somehow.
Thanks for sharing the images. I never experienced this. I hope fiverr seller support can find out the actual issue. If you receive any response from fiverr support on this issue please share the response.
I will. I’m hoping it’s actually a good thing, rather than a bad thing. That they have some kind of confidence in me, perhaps that I could be worth the bigger price. But who knows. Let me try and contact them, but they are always too busy at the moment.
I have had 6 jobs. All except one I think were Buyer’s Request and the demand was to do most of those jobs at a far cheaper price than I wanted. Or to include far more words than was included in the voiceover Gig. I need 5 star reviews so i did the jobs. Now I have the 6 5-star reviews but still no-one buys the Gigs except through Buyers Requests, which means I end up doing it cheaper than I want, with a couple of exceptions. But i don’t really know what else I could do…
Just keep strong and don’t be discouraged. You’re in a competitive niche and you’re also fairly new, so you’ll need some time to work your way up. We all have gone through that phase, but it doesn’t last that long.
I don’t know if you are sending your offers at whatever price BR shows or at yours. But, if it were at BR’s rate, analyse if it could be worth sending it your rates. That’s what I would do if I were you.
Sadly, my experience would be of little help to you, since what I offer is translation and proofreading - a totally different category and a totally different type of customer.
We’re an ocean apart, and not only geographically.
I don’t have the confidence or experience yet to insist on my original price, which would be more than what the Buyer wants to pay most of the time. But I will get there. This psychology of pricing is very interesting isn’t it, and I agree that sometimes going low is not the way forward. I will choose my moment. It’s interesting that the ‘Customized for you’ has never happened to you. I don’t know what that means. Anyway, good luck, and keep on selling, and reaping the 5-star reviews!
