thanks for this help.


Hi grphicdesign121,

Please notice I am also a new seller with little experience.

What might have helped me to get my first few orders is to show people who I am (at the moment my gig preview video is not active; pending review). I did not ask my buyers about it, so I do not know for sure.

In my honest opinion, to show you as the person you are will make you stand out from the crowd. That means to place your picture and name at your profile. To add a short video of yourself to the gig (maybe as short as 5 seconds like “hi, I am … please have a look at my work samples.”). Anything that will make people recognize you as a real person.

There are plenty of anonymous sellers out there, design studios with employes and so on. One of many possibilities for one-man new sellers is to build relationships with buyers by showing them who you are.

Since I’m struggling with English a bit at the moment, I cannot judge your English skills. But I am aware it is very important to have excellent written English skills. This is what I am working on right now :slight_smile: I downloaded some educational apps and practice every day, step by step. If this is something you are also working on, you may want to start with googling “Writing Business Emails in English Made Easy”.

Wishing you every success with your business,


You should use Grammarly. and you should use google translate for your communication. I do believe that you should do blogging on your skills you are selling on fiverr which will help you to improve your writing skills.


Great hint with the blogging, thanks!


Hi there, Your gigs look great but your English could do with a bit of a polish. I would happily tidy up your profile and make the English better. Message me if you would like me to do this ( it’s a free sample :))
Thanks, rosebarlow

Hi There is no buyers request in my profile

I haven’t looked at your gigs yet but the English in your profile needs some work.


I am not native English. so its fine if there are some mistakes in grammer. I thing we should be honest with our client
