hi, am Ernest. I am a professional proof reader and editor. i am new to fiverr and i just created my account but am confused on how to create a super gig. please i need instructions(steps) to follow. Thanks
I’m new to Fiverr too. I’m sure there are instructions somewhere on Fiverr to help set up a gig. You may also want to Google for instructions/suggestions.
I’ve been working through several books on Amazon. I just finished “The Fiverr Business Plan” by George Ilian and am working my way through “The Fiverr Master Class” by the Mastermind Group. I found Ilian’s book very informative and plan to use his suggestions when setting up my first gig.
Of course, I need to set up my profile page first.
Good luck with your gig!
Edit: Ernest, I just found Fiverr Academy (https://www.fiverr.com/academy). This may help, too.
I took a quick look at your profile:
Your profile image: I recommend a color photo of your smiling face. Others may recommend you use a logo or a caricature to protect your privacy. No reputable person associated with Fiverr recommends that you ever lie about your location or attempt to deceive Buyers with misleading information. (I’m not saying you have, I’m just including this information for the benefit of anyone else who might read this post.)
Your one-line statement that appears on the profile page, directly below your user name: You don’t have one. You should get one and make it cool.
Your profile text – note the edits: “Just go ahead to” immediately works against you. Your copy cannot have any spelling or grammar errors!
All your gigs should have video, 3 images, 2 pdfs (for more samples and your business policies), and so on…
Make a video of yourself talking to the camera, because this approach garners IMMEDIATE RESULTS. Include additional samples in the video!

Never Contact a Seller on Fiverr to Ask for FREE STUFF!]
Be sure to read the Fiverr Terms of Service and to make use of Tools like the Fiverr Blog, Fiverr Academy, Fiverrcast, and Fiverr Support.
Engage your common sense. Not every suggestion here will work for you. You are responsible for your results, so you should test everything and adjust for your own best results.
As a general rule, when I have time to participate in the Fiverr Forum and I notice a request like yours in the “Improve My Gig” section, I am willing and able to look at a Seller’s Profile and one gig one time.
I can give you a better level of assistance if you first work your way through the checklist below. That way, I won’t waste your one turn by advising you to follow items on the checklist.
Please study this thread:
https://forum.fiverr.com/t/the-big-day-i-finally-ask-blaisefaint-to-critique-my-gig/104448 to better appreciate what I’m talking about here. It should take you a minimum of 4 weeks to make your way through all the material.
If you haven’t already read Strengths Finder 2.0 and taken that assessment, I suggest you do so, because it should give you the language to express your strengths and help you to brainstorm some gigs for which you are especially well qualified. Check out the writing of Chris Guillebeau and Tim Ferriss. By Josh Kaufman, I recommend The First 20 Hours: How to Learn Anything… Fast! and The Personal MBA. Also, you could read Influence by Robert Cialdini and Get Anyone to Do Anything by David J. Lieberman.
Here’s a thread discussing a specific example of a Buyer Request for which I created a gig and then asked for help improving that gig via the forum.
