How to sell more..?


Hi! :blush:

I’m new here and I’d love to know some suggestions/techniques to sell more.

Thank you so much!


Hello Melissa,

The fiverr academy would be a great place to start with, familiarise yourself with all you need to get started.

You can also pick lots from the forum. You should try visiting the Seller tips category, for wealth of experience, try the My fiverr experience and ranting pot.

All the best.


Dear Melisa:

I took a quick look at your profile:

Your gigs have stock photos. I suggest you create bespoke images that are more relevant to the actual gigs you’re offering. You definitely should appear in your videos to set Buyers’ minds at ease as to whether you appear in your profile image.

Take advantage of the fact that you are in exotic, romantic Spain, and take pictures in front of romantic Spanish scenery. If you appear in your profile image, you should definitely add a “holding a sign gig” at some Spanish hot spot, like Burger King or McDonald’s. Is the Taj Mahal in Spain? The London Bridge? Whatever.

I think you should come up with a catchier one-line catchphrase than “Hey! Glad you’ve found me here on Fiverr”.

If you read your profile text carefully, it appears that there are 2 spaces after “Spain.” It also appears that there is 1 space after all the other sentences. Given that you are offering your services as a proofreader, all your English grammar, spelling, and punctuation must be beyond question.

In my humble opinion, the heart emojis are unprofessional and your profile text is too long, and too Melisa-centric. I mean, by this point I know you’re glad I found you here on Fiverr, and apparently, you’re madly in love with me, but you’re kind of conceited and really into yourself.

I want you to talk more about me, specifically the fact that you’re here to help me with my problems. I suggest you condense your data dump as much as you can, and spend more time talking about the reason I am here: ME!

Who the heck is M.S. Mon?! Are you talking about yourself again, this time in code?!

Seriously, unless you’re M.S. Mon, you should not be quoting M.S. Mon. If you are M.S. Mon, you need to make that clear. You can also offer more writing samples in the 2 pdf files you are allowed to post for each gig.
