For a while I was in the top 5 in the search results of my category (British female VO), and would get 6+ orders per day. I had the LSATs coming up which I needed to study for, so I raised my prices to get fewer orders. I was eventually bumped off the first page, and now get MUCH fewer orders- and freelancing is my only source of income so I’m starting to struggle.
I was wondering whether it would help to change my gig video. It’s the one I’ve had since I first started working on fiverr. It’s an animated video I made, and the quality is a little lacking and doesn’t really do my services justice, as I made it before upgrading my microphone and getting more experience etc.
So my question is: in your opinion, does a gig seem more “clickable”/professional etc with a live action video, or is an animated video just as good? I’m basically trying to decide between creating an animated gig video again, or filming a “live action” one (though I’m quite camera shy); so any advice would be greatly appreciated!
(I’m not really looking for advice like “apply to do buyer requests!” or “promote your gig on social media!”, I know about those things, I’m just asking about how to improve the gig itself)
