how can I get my first client?
First, you need to invest a lot of your time poring over several informative forum posts and articles in the Seller Help Center. You then need to put this knowledge to good use by creating/improving your gig(s) and fine-tuning them to the best of your ability.
There is no shortcut to success. You need to put in the effort. If you do that, surely you will have your first client soon.
And which “informative forum posts” would that be exactly?
There are hundreds of “informative” and “helpful” forum posts that are specially curated to cater to the needs of new sellers who are just venturing out into the Fiverr-verse. A few of them have already been mentioned in this thread by another forum user. You might want to start with them.
I would suggest that you spend some time browsing through the forum (to find informative forum posts). Don’t forget to use the search tool on the top right-hand side of the forum as it’s a very versatile tool that can connect you with the forum posts that you’re looking for.
Like I had mentioned in my previous post, even the seller help center has many articles that explain the basics of creating a strong gig and the importance of the various elements that contribute toward making a gig truly stand out. You could use the search feature in the seller help center to look for more helpful articles.
