There is no benefit to you in working for free. A buyer has to order, pay, and then you deliver.

Only then can they leave a review if they choose to do so.

Suggest you read the Terms of Service at the bottom of the Fiverr main page for the rules as to how Fiverr works.

Everything is explained there in great detail.

Enjoy the forum. :slightly_smiling_face:

Welcome to the Fiverr forums.

There are far better ways to promote yourself other than giving your work away for free. There is no one method that works for everyone, as services offered have different target markets.

That said: Check out the Tips For Sellers category: You’ll find hundreds of threads offering advice on a variety of things to consider and/or improve. (Note: not all advice can apply to all gigs or categories, and be sure you check multiple sources as there are some false tips.)

It takes a lot of work to make it as a freelancer, so be sure to research and plan accordingly.

“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.” (Attributed to Benjamin Franklin)

Hi there,

honestly, I doubt it would be possible because Fiverr is a platform to make money in the first place. Company has its responsibility to shareholders.

Maybe an idea to offer something extra (free) within existing gig(s).

It’s against Fiverr’s ToS to offer free services to anyone.

Plus it’s really a bad strategy to have.

I’m absolutely agree that doing the work for free is a waste of time and you will not get any positive credits from that. If everyone offer free services to get orders believe me no one will get orders all buyers will choose someone who will do that for them for free if they don’t like the result they can always find another free service and at last when they see that there is no profitable results in free services they just find another place where they can buy a qualitative product this is how it will work

Time is a terrible thing to waste.

Yup!

Word around the street is that by offering free work. It’ll entice Buyers to buy more gigs. :no_mouth:

It makes me woozy. :woozy_face:
