Hello Everyone! How are you doing? I am sure you’re doing great!
It’s been almost an year in Fiverr and a few months before I took this platform seriously and believe me it was such a relief to know that I did. I was grateful to quit my current job and become a full-time freelancer. As a Fiverr Seller (and buyer), I have made quite a community (especially here in Pakistan). And a lot of people have been asking how I am still getting impressions and sales everyday. Because ever since the Fiverr has updated its algorithm; some people are having problems; specially the ones who were making handsome revenue from Fiverr alone and it was their only source of income.
So if you’re one of those people who are struggling to make money; this post is for you. Here is a trick that I hypothesized and realized that it works for everybody: I told some of my friends to do what I did and it worked for them too.
My hypothesis was: if Fiverr’s algorithm is updating itself frequently, shouldn’t we be updating our gigs frequently too? It makes sense, right?
Here is what I told them:
- Update Your Gig and Make it More Professional
Believe me or not but a lot of us DON’T improve our gigs and they stay the same as they were created in the first place. It might be because we think that our current gig is quite good enough as it produced sales before, and so it should today too.
But to be honest, that’s not the case in Fiverr as this platform continuously updates itself and adapts, and improves; so should you.
In my opinion, Fiverr’s algorithm love gigs that are updated frequently and:
- Have a Detailed Explanation of What You Provide to the Client
- Are Written in English that’s not a Copy-Paste and is Free from Errors
- Include an Explainer Video About Your Gig (Optional but Recommended)
By updating the gigs, you show to Fiverr that you’re constantly improving yourself and adapting to the big freelance market. I am not sure how to put it in words but I’d strongly recommend you to give it a try. I am certain you won’t regret updating your gig.
P.S. Don’t upload a bad explainer video as it will turn customers away. I haven’t uploaded one yet because I want to upload an explainer video that clearly defines me and what I provide to clients, in a professional and jaw-dropping way.
P.P.S Always hire someone to work for you. For example, I hired a graphic designer to come up with a really attractive banner that I have on my gigs. I’d suggest you do the same but I am sure you may already be doing this as it’s a no-brainer opinion anyway.
Thank you for taking your time reading it. Let me know what you think about this post and feel free to add your thoughts in comments. I’d love to read your suggestions!
