How I became a level 2 seller - some tips for you. [ARCHIVED]


#1

Hi everyone,

I wanted to take a moment to share my fiverr story.

I started selling my keyword research service on Dec 16.

Within 2 days, i hit my 10th sale and became level 1 seller

Today, 15 days later, i just got an order for my 50th sale and became a level 2 seller with 100% gig rating.

I work 60 hours a day as a chef and have 2 small kids but somehow because of the extra time during the holidays i managed to do about 5 orders a day.

I’m telling you all of this because:

  1. I wanted to thank some of the forum fiver members who contributed to their tips and advice, i could not have done this without your help. so thank you!!!

  2. Provide you with motivation that if i can do this anyone can.

Here are some tips that come to my mind:

  • place a video of your fiverr gig from day1. i believe this was the main reason i started getting orders right away without any history.

  • listen to other successful fiverr sellers who are willing to give you advice in this forum (again, i took this advice to heart and really applied some of the tips being offered here)

  • do anything to help make your gig stand out especially if you are in a saturated niche…offer a bonus, make your gig an express gig, and use all of the description word count to explain your services. Use all of your tags too btw.

  • be good with communicating with your customers and over deliver!

  • Treat your fiverr account like a business, keep fiver happy and keep your customers happy and be a good steward to the fiverr community.

I can’t believe i’m giving out advice after only being a fiver seller for 15 days. Somehow my heart says that someone might be able to benefit from this.

thank you!
Jaya

@alexgreene yeah, i thought to myself that would make me a superhero. :slight_smile:



@dins_cool wishing you the best too!



@tshuenade i’ll check out your gig for sure.



Note to self: need to come back and visit my old posts so i can comment on the repliers. :slight_smile:

What format should the video be in for upload? I cannot find anything telling me about a format? Also, Fiverr says their shouldn’t be any website address showing in you video. I have seen web site addresses in top seller videos. Why are their videos accepted?

Hi jayapatel,



Thanks for the tips, I think we really need to get a video happening ASAP for our gig. A personal introduction would really make a difference I think.



I think another tip would be to leave positive feedback for the buyer as well after they’ve left their positive feedback.



Thanks,

Jeff

PS: Any other pointers you can give for our gigs specifically?

@jcommander06

i’m not a video expert by no means. I used screen-o-matic to do a video of my screen showing my service so people have an idea of what they will get for me and it worked great.



you can check out my video, i have no idea about the format other than it is in mp4 form.


#17

@indiemunity

i would def. add buyer feedback to the list of tips.



as far as your gig, just checked it out, i don’t see any video promotions for any of your gigs. it really would kick up your sales if you did that.


#18

That’s really awesome Jaya :slight_smile: Amazing, really!



I hope I can get enough people to want my videos in order to reach level 1 or 2 :slight_smile:



Keep up the good work. I see by your video you act very professional and I think that adds to your trustworthiness.
