I am a new seller with about 30 completed orders and all things being equal I will most like become a level 1 seller during the next evaluation.
Here are my tips for new sellers without job.
- Don’t bid for a job you are not sure you can do. It will course you loads of heartache , waste your time and eventually lead to order cancellation.
STARTING YOUR FIVERR CAREER WITH A CANCELLED ORDER CAN MAKE IT EVEN LESS LIKELY FOR YOU TO GET AN ORDER*
Some of you will always complain that you aren’t seeing buyer requests. The secret is time zone issues. Use a day to study when buyer request are regularly seen. Pick a pen and write the time …
( I discovered this secret by myself, whenever it is a particular time **:00. I usually see a lot of buyer requests related to my niche. So guess your timezone will also have the same. Only that you need to discover it)
Study every one that sends you a message, some troublesome clients are very tough to deal with. Even if you bisect your head and send it through the delivery button, they will still complain that your blood is too red or say something horrible.
Now the idea is, watch out for troublesome clients. They have two major characteristics
1) They want even a Bugatti veron for $5, I mean they want big things for terribly cheap prizes.
They are simply around to exploit you and prey on your desperation to sell.
if you are careful enough you can decern aggression in their tone of sending messages. These are very difficult persons . stay away from them otherwise, they will make your life miserable. They will run away with both the service you rendered and the money you should collect.
Social media promotions. Don’t start promoting by jumping into every social media forum like a gorilla motivated by a spiderman movie.
Here is how to do it.
study the target market , for example if you are a graphic designer join various graphic design and company related groups on Facebook. Blast your gig links into this groups.
Don’t forget Google communities and the use of # tags on Twitter.
Another thing is read the TOS, ignorance is not a defence.
You might also be tempted to send promotional messages to fiverr users. Here , no one will call it a message it is called spam.
You will receive a warning “slap” from the fiverr team for that.
… I have too many things to say but time will fail me…
