Thank you for looking over my gigs and giving such great feedback, Annie! I apologize for my late reply. You make excellent points about attracting new customers who may not have had a reading before .
I have thought about making a short video to add to my gigs explaining a little about readings, and demonstrating a part of my process. The only thing that is stopping me is that I don’t have the set-up to create professional quality videos ( my tablet is sub-par in the video department., and my digital camera is 15 years old lol). However, I am hoping to acquire a hand-me-down camera before December, one that’s at least 10 years newer, so I will have that option.
I considered another reason for adding a video, and that is it will show me demonstrating the service I provide, and allow the potential customer to see me as a person. In my experience, people who are looking for a reading like to relate to the reader and like to feel like they can trust that person with their questions and personal details.
That said, until I am able to implement any videos, I can add more about Tarot and cartomancy in general to my FAQ sections, as well as provide a short description on how I perform readings . I also don’t know if outside links on a Fiverr gig are allowed ??
I agree, the word limit in the gig description doesn’t give us alot of wiggle room! At first, I tried to include ordering instructions, but quickly hit the limit, so instead I added those details in the requirements section of the order page. They are written as follows:
“In the order field, please give your name, and specify whether you want a general reading that covers your situation as a whole - or- if you have a specific question you want me to focus on. I will deliver your written reading straight to your inbox photos of the cards included.”
You have given me alot of great critique to work with! Thank you again for replying!
