Level 0, hard to get sales


#1

Hi, Leman here. I’m on Fiverr for one week and it seems pretty hard to get orders. I sent 90 offers to Buyers request and just one sale so far. I read a lot of guides online, found SEO tips about keywords and applied them, but still no increase in sales.

I mainly concentrate on the Logo gig as this is the area where I’m passionate about but also have some other gigs too there. it would be nice if you can check out my profile and tell me if there is room for improvement in the overall.

Dear Leman:

There IS room for improvement in the overall.

I took a quick look at your profile:

Your profile image: Try a color photo of your smiling face.
Your log line: is too generic. Try again.
Your profile text – note the edits:

I’m a graphic design artist and photographer with a degree in graphic design. I also love fine art and photography. I am here to help you. -Leman

You need to polish your English throughout. Build gigs around keywords for the software packages you use.

All your gigs should have video, 3 images, 2 pdfs (for more samples), and so on…

Make a video of yourself talking to the camera, because this approach garners IMMEDIATE RESULTS. Include additional samples in the video!

Good luck,
Blaise

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 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.
