Just gonna ask flat out...what am I missing here?

I need a little direction obviously. Getting impressions, few clicks and no sales. What’s a friendly, good sounding fat bald guy gotta do to get a gig around here?

Welcome to the Fiverr forums.

It can take some sellers months to get their first order, and VO is a very, very competitive category here on Fiverr.

I think your prices are way too low, but I’m not a VO, so I don’t know for sure. Also, Unlimited revisions are never a good idea. Top 5 Tips to Protect Yourself from Badly Behaved Buyers

Thanks for the youtube…I made some changes based on it. Especially the unlimited revisions part. I don’t know what I was thinking. Panicking I guess.

Not necessarily. As I already said: VO is hypercompetitive.

In the gig " I will give your message a relatable authentic quality":
I’m not sure why in your FAQ section you say "I can lay on a thick Cockney brogue but it won’t fool anyone from Liverpool. ". Why would people from Liverpool be experts at distinguishing whether someone is correct at doing a Cockney accent (since Cockney is/was spoken in the East End of London not Liverpool)?
Also if you saw the title alone you might not know it’s a voice over gig.

The gig descriptions for “I will give your message a relatable authentic quality” and “I will voice your whiteboard animation” are almost exactly the same (apart from “Whiteboard Animations” added onto the latter. Maybe say a bit more in them to differentiate them (you shouldn’t be providing the same service in each but both say “* Explainer videos *TV/Radio commercials Instructional…”).

Wow, learn something new everyday. I was told the Liverpool thing was called Cockney. Thanks for setting me straight. And I think you’re right, I need to get the keyword “VO or voiceover” in the title. I was overcomplexificating it.

You can also create some gig as “spokesperson” , siting in your sofa , or use any other kind of background in your house , because you look cool with good voice , I think some buyers will interesting to have some spokesperson video from you . :smile:

Nice tip…I’ve been thinking about a video. And I never thought of using “spokesperson” keyword.
