New Fiverr Profiles


#1

I noticed Fiverr is laying out some new profiles, with an added skills, certification, linked accounts, etc.

I like the idea, but I wish they would add an "About Me’ section with more characters so you can explain a bit more about yourself and what you do.

What do you guys think of the new layout?


#2

The about me section is fine, most people don’t want to read your entire life story, they just want a small taste.

The problem is that people who don’t know how to write sometimes write too much or too little. That’s OK, they can hire writers to summarize their experiences.


#3

The new layout appeared about a month ago, and I was still considering what to write, when… suddenly it disappeared. A few days ago it reappeared, and I don’t want to write anything until I see that it’s permanent. The reason is, you have to constantly rewrite you profile desc so that you’re not repeating yourself - u know what i mean?

No need for a bigger “about me” section.

I like how they now allow for specific skills, but the certification part needs some sort of verification.

Otherwise we’re going to see a lot of sellers with credentials from Adobe and whatnot.

Looks like Fiverr is trying to help people that are professionals in their field, which is fine by me.


#5

I’m not going to list my education and certifications as that has no bearing on my gigs whatsoever and it’s personal.


#6

Exactly right . thanks


#7

For me the previous layout was much better then this where my gig and reviews are more visible…the only thing i like in this one is the top bar with the name and ratings that remain static…


#8

Exactly what I thought!


#9

Not just for that, I get a ton of readings sometimes so my delivery rate might be slower. Things like that to put on your profile for a little update to people, etc.


#10

I think those new features should be customised by category wised.


#11

I agree…i also like the previous one…


#12

its perfect according to most, also you have linked your other stuff and mostly buyers are seasonal they just one buy and Go away.
so really no need for this :slight_smile:

I am confused about something -
Fiverr wrote:
"Your profile now lets you add info such as:
Social verifications: Link directly to Facebook, Twitter and your other online presence”

But in the TOS, making outside contact is not allowed.
So by adding a link to my fb / blog, etc, isn’t this an invitation to make contact outside of fiverr??

What are the benefits for linking facebook, linkedin etc
