More Specialist. Higher Prices

Though be careful of Fiverr’s rules about reviews or how it’s worded:

Do not post, offer or ask for paid reviews, positive or negative feedback on any product, service or performance.

Way ahead of you :smiley: I did it yesterday for all my GIGs. I placed prices that are more realistic to work for.

And deleted one GIG with 2 5* reviews. I decided I am not going to do it happily even if I get orders so why waste GIG on it.

But I must say I am shocked with your images… and videos, I had completely different character in mind for you.
Profile photo here and that on main page, it is like two different persons all together, no similarity.

I’m sorry I didn’t meet your expectations :joy: who were you expecting?

Edit: my partner did give me a haircut just before those new videos, a bit more off than I’d usually have! But needs must in the current climate.

It’s a tough one, I have done “review videos” but not for marketing, more commenting on their website. A better word would be evaluate.

In the latest videos, you look and sound like 18-25 max, age, so that surprised me.

I know you are here from 2010 so it looks like you started doing Fiverr at 8 :smiley:

I started on Fiverr when I was around 15-16 years old. 10 years I’ve had an account, I’ll let you do the math :joy:

Edit: also a huge compliment to be compared on looks to an 18 year old, thanks!

It’s a good practice to have some good price in the gig. As quality works need some good pay out. And as joker said once if you are good at something never do it free. So low cost sometimes reflect as free. Good luck !

If joker said it then it must be true!

His name was Jim, but although destined for fame, my Fiverr profile was possibly not the platform for him. :frowning:

Videos and images changed.

It’s the Terms of Service

That’s how I’ve been doing it as well! Right now, I have just kept one gig alive, that too with a single package (mostly because I work on custom orders anyway). It has been working great for me, so I’d suggest you to try this as well! Good luck.

After @frank_d post, I have thought long and hard about pricing and readjusted my pricing structure to be more relevant and appealing, it’s still the higher prices but in smaller increments, for example $5 for 25 words on the voice over gig and $5 for 1 minute of captioning. Very small increments but on longer jobs it adds up to a much higher price and gives me the ability to reach out to the lower budgets without going cheaper.

I used to offer a minimum of 5 minutes or 300 words, which worked well for those sizes but the total price probably wasn’t appealing to people with a short video or script.

Wow, recording a presentation video together with your brit accent takes everything to another level. Good job. I am a fervent advocate of “many gigs for only one specialty”, now you mix two speciality with your three gigs, if i understand well: voice over and video editing. Just a thought.

I had always had a voice over option with the screen casting gig as the two go hand in hand. But it is an extra, the voice over is not included in the basic package.

All I can say is, “I’ll treat this as a learning experience”. I was getting on average 1 order per day. When I raised my prices it went down to 0 per day. No orders for about 12 days now. So prices have come back down and I am going to review my gigs as no sales=bad business.
