I have had good success on Fiverr.com as a second source of income. I can not say that I am rich but I do know how to network to gain and or maintain clients. One of the questions I get often is “how to get buyers or the first sell?”
Tip 1. When you set up your fiverr profile you want to make sure that you do not leave any section blank. Take advantage of every opportunity and utilize all areas where info can be mentioned related to your gig. This will help to ensure that if a buyer has any questions they can be answered when they browse through your profile. This will reduce the likelihood of them leaving your page and viewing someone else’s.
Tip 2. Your gig should have at least the following:
*A picture of your gig, Video to increase more sells, detailed description of what you are offering and most definitely some gig extras explaining other things you can do that will help to generate more income for you overall. Although Fiverr’s main slogan is based on selling gigs for $5; there is money to be made that can total up to $150 per gig if you have gig extras that are worthwhile to buy.
Tip 3. When delivering your gigs to the buyers always mention that you aim to please and that you want them to be satisfied. By saying this you are letting them know you are not just about the money but have a genuine interest in building a business relationship and hopefully you will be working with them again in the near future. Never just send the gig without given them information on what you did for them even if your gig already states what you do.
Tip 4. Remember that if you have LIVE PORTFOLIO enabled; every job you do will be seen by potential clients that come across your page. So if you want new business then it is important that every gig you do be as professionally done as possible no matter how much or little you made on the gig. Keep in mind any buyer whether new old repeat does not know how much the previous buyer spent on the gig in your life portfolio area. Some of my gigs have been $30, $25, $5 and even $60. Just something to think about. It’s all in the gig extras!
Thank you for stopping by and taking a look at my Fiverr tip article. I look forward to working with many of you.
