  1. Don’t use multiple accounts. Period.
  2. Bookmarking gigs is far more useful for buyers.
  3. What? A Buyer contacting a seller before buying is wise, but sellers contacting buyers is against the ToS.
  4. What? Yes both buyers and sellers have requirements, but why would the seller open their own requirements?
  5. Don’t work for the rating. Work to serve your client. Priorities.
  6. There are only so many ways to say ‘I will do X’. Yes you should try to be different, but having the same title as someone else won’t likely result in a ban. Contents, yes: DO NOT COPY.
  7. Meet deadlines because that’s what you promised to do. Don’t aim to meet them to avoid being punished. Priorities.
  8. Endearing yourself to a client is a good general business practice. Don’t ‘befriend’ them with the aim to 'get future work. Priorities.
  9. Okay, this one’s good, though it’s wordy and just echoing the TOS.
  10. This is pointless unless you’re engaging in order to learn. Otherwise, being ‘active’ on the forums does near nothing to help.
  11. False. People need sleep. Don’t compromise your health.
  12. DON’T violate the TOS. Knowing the system trigger words to avoid is good, though.
  13. Reasonable tip, poorly worded.
  14. Reasonable tip.
  15. A near direct quote from the TOS.
  16. Reasonable on the surface, but doesn’t help if someone doesn’t know what SEO is. Thank goodness for Google and Fiverr articles.
  17. This should be common sense, but I’ll let it slide since that seems to be somewhat lacking.
  18. Reasonable, if it adds to the comprehension of the gig. Video for the sake of video might do more harm than good.
  19. The first part? NO, just no. Yes, market to your target audience. DON’T SPAM.
  20. I’ll let this one slide.

You are welcome. Thanks for reading

Try to be active as much as possible and market your gigs socially

  1. Yes multiple account is against fiverr TOS
  2. Bookmarking the gigs usually helps to rank you gigs impression tell me how just think like this if a seller bookmarking you gigs he/she is bookmarking as a buyer as he is switching to buyer for bookmark and thus the gig will appear in recommendation of that buyer/seller
  3. A seller never can contact a buyer till the buyer knocks first here I wanted to mean that be communicative to buyer and get clear what he/she actually needs.
  4. If you don’t let the buyers know your requirements for the task just think the buyer place the order without providing you anything what you will do just sit and watch the time? Fiverr has a requirements option in their gigs.
  5. I already mentioned a best rating can be possible satisfying the client please see. If you have a bad rating you can’t send any buyer request and also difficult to find jobs.
  6. Having same to same titles affects the rating
  7. Actually a friendly behavior with your clients brings you more job and also they recommends you to others as well Me myself is a proof.
  8. Being active in forums helps you to know many things regarding fiverr and also to be a top rated its not only mean fulfilling the requirements there is also some part of involvement needed in forum.
  9. Me too sleeps and everyone needs sleep but its a recommendations from fiverr to be active as much as possible.
  10. Wherever its possible is not a spamming and sharing gigs is not spamming

In general, your ‘tips’ will be more credible if you can cite sources.

2 - Gigs views and Favorites , Get Fast orders Favorite My Gig i Will Like and Favorite your Gig
and
If your impressions are dropping, please read this. [ARCHIVED]

4 - Thank you for clarifying this one. Reworded tip: If you’re getting orders and missing requirements, modify your gig and add the requirements.

5 - Yes, a bad rating hurts your profile. Yes, you should give your best value. But human psychology and behavior is important. Priorities. With the context you’ve provided, the ‘tip’ is more: avoid bad ratings by working hard. That’s the mindset of thinking that ‘avoid the bad’ gets you to ‘good’. This does not get you to good. You just get ‘not-bad’.
Not all buyers leave reviews. If you work for a review, you’ll likely be disappointed. If you work to serve, you’re rewarded every time.

6 - Source, please?

7 is 8 - I wasn’t arguing the result, though this can be category/service-dependent. Golden Rule. Be nice for the sake of being nice, not because you want something in return.

8 is 10 - “its not only mean fulfilling the requirements” What requirements? The forums are a separate platform. Activity here does NOT influence the main platform.

9 is 11 - Yes, this is stated by Fiverr. The problem, however, is that ‘active’ is not defined in terms of time. For all we know ‘active’ just means spending an hour a day on Fiverr, and thus those ‘extra’ 23 hours are wasted. ‘Active’ could be 10 minutes. ‘Active’ could be 10 hours. We don’t know, and we do know that there are proven studies that consistent interrupted sleep is detrimental to health. Being ‘on call’ SUCKS.

10 is 19 - That can be and IS misunderstood to the point that several websites forbid Fiverr links. ‘Whenever’ means "at whatever time; on whatever occasion ", and does not include appropriateness.
