nice tips… thanks a lot…

Great ideas! I am trying to figure out how best to promote my gig on social media. What have you found that works best for you? Thanks for your insight.

A lot of spammers on buyer’s request, thank for the tip anyway.

What I need is motivation, hehehe :stuck_out_tongue:

hi how can we contact the buyer after sending OFFER towards his post. when i ordered for a video all the creators have contacted me. but in turn when i started to sell i could not able to contact the buyer

Try to join groups and promote your gig

nice tips for beginreers

Yes, you can not able to contact directly .

thank you dijatul

Hi, With due respect I am requesting you not to PM me . You were sending me private text, but I hope you will not please. Because if you think I will give you my personal Facebook id, I will not. And I really dont have time to private gossiping. If you want to gossip then you must buy a gig. In here we all are seller and we valued our time. I hope you understand. Only we can discuss in forum. If you want to chatting, gossiping, anything, just post in Forum. There are so many expert in here, they will suggest you . They will help you how to make gig, and how to improve yourself. But personally I am sorry to say you that , I can not share you any info of mine.
Thank you and I hope wish you all the best .

There are a lot of successful sellers who are making big bucks without any videos in their gigs. And you can’t send 10 offers daily if there are not sufficient requests related to your gigs. Overall, thanks for these tips, others are quite useful.

I love Fiverr, and because I’m grateful for the opportunity Fiverr has provided to increase my income and pay for things I otherwise couldn’t have afforded, I want to share some tips to help others succeed here. So if someone sat with me in a cafe and wanted advice on how to start on Fiverr, here’s what I’d tell them.

  1. Make a list of talents you possess and what you’re good at doing. Brainstorm. It can be anything. Are you good at proofreading? Are you bi-lingual? Do you have a good voice for voiceovers? Are you good on camera? Can you design logos? Are you good at doing research? Are you good at crafts? Etc.

  2. Convert those talents into a service. Let’s assume you’re bi-lingual and can speak French and English. Maybe you can be a translator. Maybe you can offer Skype interpreter services. Maybe you can do French or English voiceovers.

  3. Go to Fiver and search for sellers who offer similar services to what you’re thinking about. Take notes on what they offer for $5. What extras do they provide? What other services do they provide? Don’t be afraid of competition. Embrace it! Why? Because it means there’s a great demand for the service. Still, ask yourself what value-added service you can provide that no one else (or only a few others) can provide.

  4. Next, take action and get your Gig out there!

  5. Promote your service by joining message boards and Facebook and LinkedIn groups where potential customers communicate. Offer valuable insight and content to the discussion, but don’t spam the board. Make certain you have a link to your Gig in your signature, and when appropriate, you can mention you’re a seller on Fiverr. But again, don’t spam; otherwise you’ll likely get banned.

  6. Be patient! Fiverr is a HUGE marketplace so it may take a few weeks to get your first sale. Yes…a few weeks. But after your first sale, you’ll build momentum.

  7. Constantly look for ways to improve and add value to your Gig. Maybe it’s improving your Fiverr sales video or the copy in your Gig description. After I started gaining momentum, for example, I went out and purchased new equipment so my Gig would rival professional spokesperson services.

  8. Think about how to target the right audience. For example, I took my core service and thought about how I could expand it to hit a variety of small business needs. For example, my “I will be your video spokesperson” Gig is me presenting a 40 to 50-word script for $5 in front of a white background. But I also created a “I will create a spokesperson content marketing video” Gig. It’s essentially the same as my spokesperson Gig, but it’s tailored to those businesses looking for content marketing videos (i.e. videos that are more instructional than promotional). This way, if someone is searching for “content marketing videos” I have a better shot at showing up in the Fiverr results than my spokesperson Gig. For the translation Gig example, you could create a simple “I will translate your 50-word English document to French for $5″ Gig, but then you could also create a new Gig that’s called “I will translate your 50-word business contract from English to French for $5.” It’s all about figuring out what target groups need your services.

  9. Be friendly and kind. People want to do business with people they like. Be likable and friendly. Be responsive to your buyers and serve their needs.

  10. Above all, provide a valuable service that is the best quality you can provide. I’ve bought from Fiverr sellers who deliver an amazing product or service. Will I use them again? Most definitely! So strive to deliver a quality service that meets or exceeds your customers’ needs.

Two more tips I’d add are:

  1. Throw in more free stuff, at least in the beginning. Under promise and over deliver. It sets you apart and gets you more gig sooner
  2. ASK FOR A GOOD REVIEW. Reputation is critical, especially as you start out. When you remind your clients to please send a review your way, you will gain reputation faster!

Thanks for the tips! Well follow up and see if they work :slight_smile:

I am a newbie, so according to your experience on fiverr, you spend more time finding a buyer or completing the orders?

Also, I could not understand what was exactly wrong with the tips?
If you go to Buyer Requests Section, you see a listing of a lot of buyers who have made requests for what they want.
What’s wrong with sending them an offer according to their needs if you can do that kind of work?
Also, I could not find a single spam by a seller there. All were looking buyers with their specific needs, but you mentioned that there are a lot of spammers.

I don’t understand it. Please clear my confusion. Thanks!

I m new on five RR. I m seller. Pls guide how I create gig? How I recognise buyer gig? Recently I posted gigs but all. Rejected as I don’t know about rule. I m using mobile app.

Please use computer and first read Fiverr terms and rules
