How Can I Get My First Sale? Beginner on Fiverr


#1

Hello Everybody!

I just started selling on Fiverr and wondering how can I get a sale from my gig.

I am kindly asking if you guys can give feedback to my gig? In this way, I will get some opinion to start selling quickly.

Here’s my gig!

I will be appreciated!

Thanks!

Dear Aunt May:

What name do you like to be called? Your customers want to know what to call you.

I took a quick look at your profile:

Your profile image: I suggest a photo of your smiling face.
Your log line: No suggestions other than the Oxford comma.
Your profile text – note the edits:

I am a programmer who loves web design, graphic design, and video creation. I will do my best for YOU! -[Human Being Person Name Buyers Should Call You]

All your gigs should have video, 3 images, 2 pdfs (if applicable), and so on…

Make a video of yourself talking to the camera, because this approach garners IMMEDIATE RESULTS. Include additional samples in the video!

Your images should be personal to you and not stock images. Please note that this sentence in your second image is grammatically challenged: “It is a fact that videos are engaging and simply shows your brand professionally.” Can you spot the awkward phrasing in your third photo?

You should study your competition. Who knows when the Fiverr Editors will delete your gig for having a YouTube link. Does even The Shadow Know? You might want to ask the folks on Fiverrcast

Good luck,
Blaise
