How to Sell More on Fiverr (The New Twist)

How to Sell More on Fiverr

Fiver is a fantastic tool for both buyers and sellers. People can work in their spare time or make a living doing what they love. Is there an easy way to sell more on Fiverr? Let’s explore that question in greater depth.

Be Clever, but Succinct.

As unfortunate as it may sound, the age of the text message and the 140 character tweet is upon us and because of this, people are not as likely to read large chunks of text. Even people looking for specific bits of information would rather read a bullet list than a series of paragraphs. The best way to bring in new customers on Fiverr is to have an eye catching tag line. Don’t use 25 words when you can get the same message across in 10. And do not sacrifice grammar and spelling for word count. Nothing turns off a potential buyer faster than a misspelled gig title.

Take Advantage of Social Media

You’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t have some form of social media connection. It can be social through sites like Facebook, Twitter or Google+, or more professional through things like LinkedIn. Whatever the site, it is one of the best source for free marketing on the web. They say the best marketing is word of mouth, and that word gets around faster than ever thanks to mobile apps, high speed internet connections, and people who are more than willing to make a post about something they like or dislike.

External Networking

External networking used to mean networking outside of your own social or work circle. Now, it means networking and marketing outside the internet. Invest in a set of business cards with your contact information, your Fiverr URL, and what you do. Keep a few of them in your wallet or purse at all times. If you’re having a conversation and the subject of your Gigs comes up, pass over a few cards. Who knows, you may inadvertently find yourself a lifetime customer thanks to a simple conversation.

Add a Video

The most effective thing that you can do to earn more buyers is to add a video to your gig. It doesn’t have to be super long or even professionally produced. A webcam and a microphone are all you need to record a basic promotional video. If your computer room is messy, use a clean (emphasis on clean!) use a bed sheet as a backdrop. Spend 60 – 90 seconds describing your gig and what you can do for your buyers. This is the easiest thing that you can do to bring in more buyers.

Stand Behind Your Work

Every buyer who purchases a Gig on Fiverr is expecting the work to be of the highest quality. Always deliver your very best work, and stand behind that work. If there are problems with the Gig once it has been delivered, work with the buyer to get the problems fixed. Don’t let them take advantage of you, as there are always people who want the world on a platter for free. Going a little above and beyond the call of duty can do a lot toward both winning you lifetime clients, and encouraging positive word of mouth.

There are thousands upon thousands of Gigs on Fiverr. Hopefully these tips can help you bring in a few more buyers and get you that much closer to being able to make a living on Fiverr.
