I have the same problem as you,

Dear Arsyadi:

Here is a checklist to help you improve your gigs.

Here’s a link to Fiverr Academy.

Here’s a link to Episode 1 of Fiverrcast.

Here’s a link to your profile.

  • Your log line:

This is a slogan that appears below your user name. You don’t have one. You should get one.

*Your profile image:

Normally, I’m biased in favor of photos over cartoons or logos, but in your case the cartoon not only makes sense, it looks fantastic! I’m jealous of your obvious talent!

  • Your profile text:

Hello Fiverr Buyers! I’m Arsyadi Yulian from Indonesia, with experience in illustration, vector images, and other digital art. I invite you to contact me. :slight_smile:

I strongly advise you to listen to the Fiverrcast episode, “Working Through Language.”

  • Gig Title:

I will draw your cartoon photo

This is short and to the point, but would probably benefit from the addition of key words. Do your research.

  • Gig Description:

I will draw a CARTOON PORTRAIT of you from head to shoulders. [I suggest using highlighting for “Cartoon Portrait” rather than all caps, but feel free to disagree with me on that.]

I will do a revision until you are satisfied. [NOTE added period. I suggest deleting this line.]

You’ll get [I suggest letting your pricing speak for itself. As you move up in Levels you will probably be raising your prices.]

  • 1 cartoon portrait image of you (head to shoulders)
  • colored cartoon portrait
  • JPG & PNG (Image resolution according to your request, within reason :))
  • plain background (more detailed backgrounds are available as gig extras)

For the best results, please send me a high quality image.

I will be very happy to chat with you! :slight_smile:

Check my extras below!

A suggested format for your gig descriptions:

WHO I AM

WHAT YOU GET

WHY YOU SHOULD BUY FROM ME

RECOMMENDED GIG EXTRAS / COMPLEMENTARY GIGS

  • Video: 30 to 60 seconds. Fiverr says videos can boost your sales. You should include lots of examples. I suggest you make a video of yourself talking to the camera after listening to the “Working Through Language” episode of Fiverrcast.

Gig Images:

You have 3. All 3 have the standard background. I’d suggest mixing it up with a couple of premium backgrounds (labeled as such). This issue will take care of itself over time as you add to your Live Portfolio, because you are clearly a talented artist.

Gig Extras:

You have plenty and they make sense to me. Hopefully you will revise these over time based on Buyer feedback.

Gig Packages:

Hopefully you will experiment with these over time.

Arsyadi, I would like to take this opportunity to encourage you not to give up. You clearly have talent and as you become established on Fiverr, language issues should fade away.

If you can do caricatures, it would probably make sense to add a gig along those lines, or to add other similar art gigs based on your skills and interests.

Based on the quality of your work, you have tremendous potential to succeed on Fiverr. It might take some time to get rolling, but once you get rolling, positive word of mouth will probably help your business to grow and grow. Hang in there!

Good luck,
Blaise

Dear Maria:

Are you asking me, “how do you solve a problem like Maria [has]?”

Please note that I do not work for Fiverr or Fiverr Customer Support. Check out the Fiverr Terms of Service.

I found you just fine at

IF you follow this picture as an example, you should be able to easily share any of your gigs via social media. You can even copy and paste the above URL wherever:

I took a quick look at your profile:

Your profile image: Seems to be too low resolution. Iterate with a sharper image.
Your log line: It’s too short; try to make it interesting with more key words
Your profile text – note the edits:

I’m a Civil/Structural Engineer with 2 years of professional experience. I specialize in building construction and design of reinforced concrete and steel structures for residential projects. I have worked with Autocad Drafting since 2012. -[How Buyers Solve a Problem Like What to Call Maria]

If "reinforcemed " is actually a word, I’ve never heard of it, and chances are, your Buyers haven’t either. Or, it’s a super-secret handshake, and you’re a genius!

All your gigs should have video, 3 images, 2 pdfs (for more samples or to demonstrate you know what you’re talking about, Willis), and so on…

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

Good luck,
Blaise
