Hello youngseller,

There are several things you can do to improve your sales. Many buyers are wary of new sellers, so here’s a few tips from when I first started:

  1. Make sure you complete your profile setup 100%. Also, link all of your accounts (Facebook, Stack Overflow, Email, etc) so that potential buyers know you’re not a fly by night seller.

  2. Use proper English in your Fiverr profile. Make sure to notate where you’re from, and make sure your sentence structure is proper. Many potential buyers will not want to work with you if your grammar, spelling, and sentence structure is not professional.

  3. When setting up Gigs, offer the three packages instead of just a single, one size fits all. Potential buyers like variety. Also, make use of gig addons that make sense.

  4. Have a logo designer create you a professional avatar. Buyers are looking for professional looking sellers.

  5. Make sure of the FAQ’s, make sure your gig requirements are well written, thorough, and leave no room for miscommunication or vagueness.

  6. Have a professional video made, such as an explainer video for each gig. Gig’s with high quality videos have a substantially better chance than just posting pictures / stock images.

  7. When filling out the gig description, make positive use of headers, spacing, colors, etc. You do not want to describe your gig in a big, single paragraph. Break it up, use bullet points / headers, and make it look professional.

  8. If you have any work that you can link to your Portfolio, as well as your Education and any certifications.

  9. Go after Buyer Requests; be polite, communicative, and let your customer service skills win them over.

I hope this helps you along, and welcome to Fiverr!

I am a newbie to the fiverr platform, i sell graphic designs gig. As such am seeking for ideas on how to make my first sale.


Hello! I’m having trouble posting my first gig. I signed up as a seller and don’t have the option on my panel. I only have the options of a buyer. How can I correct this?


Dear Kenzie:

Please show screenshots of the difficulties you are having.

Try Selling => My Gigs, then Add a New Gig.

I’d also suggest you do more research on Fiverr before you attempt to add gigs.

Good luck,

Be sure to make use of Tools like the Fiverr Blog, Fiverr Academy, Fiverrcast, and Support.

I suggest you check out Fiverrcast episode 08: Working Through Language Barriers.

As a general rule, when I have time to participate in the Fiverr Forum and I notice a request like yours in the “Improve My Gig” section, I am willing and able to look at a Seller’s Profile and one gig one time.

I can give you a better level of assistance if you first work your way through the checklist below. That way, I won’t waste your one turn by advising you to follow items on the checklist. Please study this thread to better appreciate what I’m talking about here. It should take you a minimum of 4 weeks to make your way through all the material.

If you haven’t already read Strengths Finder 2.0 and taken that assessment, I suggest you do so, because it should give you the language to express your strengths and help you to brainstorm some gigs for which you are especially well qualified. Check out the writing of Chris Guillebeau and Tim Ferriss. By Josh Kaufman, I recommend The First 20 Hours: How to Learn Anything… Fast!
and The Personal MBA. Also, you could read Influence by Robert Cialdini and Get Anyone to Do Anything by David J. Lieberman.

Here’s a thread discussing a specific example of a Buyer Request for which I created a gig and then asked for help improving that gig via the forum.

Dear Kenzie:

Try this rather than clicking on the link in your email:

  1. Enter in your web browser.
  2. Log in when prompted.
  3. Show us actual screenshots. Don’t try to do this on your phone – do it on a desktop or laptop.

Or, open a ticket with Fiverr Support.

There are also lots of Fiverr walkthrough videos on Vimeo.

Good luck,
