Gig looks good, and I like the package options too. Regarding the suggestions above, I’m 50/50 on the concept these days, and thought I would share why.
Option 1: Reduce pricing now
With this option, it is easier to gain attention out of the crowd, no doubt there. However, the down side isn’t even “getting paid less for your time”. For me (I mainly offer content writing services now), going this route has made increasing prices a challenge.
Starting out - I reduced my pricing to compete with other sellers (500 words for $5). After Fiverr fees, this left only $0.008/word, but it started getting attention quickly.
The downside - I have tried slight price increases over the last several years, and every time new orders slowed (or stopped), even with my repeat buyers!
The same has went for clients I have off Fiverr too. They started with, let’s call it an ‘introductory rate’, but always slow or stop ordering when I mention a price increase.
This has put me in a bind because with low prices, I can get in more work than I can personally handle. However, after 20% to Fiverr and roughly 20% to taxes, that’s $0.006/word, so I cannot afford to send it to my team of writers.
Option 2: Starting at full price:
Obviously people would clearly see your ‘regular’ pricing and understand that is what you charge. You wouldn’t have to deal with the ‘prices are increasing’ situation above and risk losing clients.
The downside - It will be much harder, if not impossible to get your first order if you do not have a following already. People on and off Fiverr price compare. Unfortunately, this often results in people ordering low-quality service to save money, etc.
