Fiverr Forum

New on Fiverr, i need some honest critique please!


I create my profile and post my first gigs yesterday. I will honestly appreciate if someone take a look over my profile and tell me what is ok and what i did wrong. Are the gigs ok in composition and pricing?
I still need to work on my description, so that i know is missing.
Thank you for anyone who find the time to help me!


I like your profile a lot but change the typos on your profile to:

they’re looking for. I like to be challenged and express my creativity.

You can get rid of the ‘you wish’ at the end of the gig titles. It sounds odd to an English speaker and doesn’t add any value.

There’s a couple English tidy-ups to do in your gig descriptions too.

If I were you I’d put the colour illustration as your primary gig image, then the pencil/ink as secondary images. People may pay more for the colour then.

Check your tags are the most appropriate by searching e.g.


Thank you! That’s exactly the type of critique I was looking for. I probably never found those errors.


Dear Catavic:

What name do you like to be called? Your customers want to know what to call you.

I took a quick look at your profile:

Your profile image: Smile more.
Your log line: This is a slogan that appears below your user name. You don’t have one. You should get one and make it cool.
Your profile text – note the edits:

I’m a graphic designer and illustrator. I love my job and I always try to show that in any project I do. Doing something with passion helps me be a better artist. I like to chat with folks like you and work hard to understand exactly what you’re looking for. Please challenge me and allow me to express my creativity for you. -Catavic [or whatever name Buyers should call you]

All your gigs should have video, 3 images, 2 pdfs, and so on… I suggest that for your draw, sketch, or illustrate gig that you have one image of each type, clearly labeled with the gig package. You can use your pdfs to show 3 more samples per gig (assuming 1 sample per page). You left “or” out of the gig title for the full body character gig.

Make a video of yourself talking to the camera, because this approach garners IMMEDIATE RESULTS. Include additional samples in the video!

Good luck,

As a general rule, when I have time to participate in the Fiverr Forum and I notice a request like yours in the “Improve My Gig” section, I am willing and able to look at a Seller’s Profile and one gig one time.

I can give you a better level of assistance if you first work your way through the checklist below. That way, I won’t waste your one turn by advising you to follow items on the checklist. Please study this thread to better appreciate what I’m talking about here. It should take you a minimum of 4 weeks to make your way through all the material.

If you haven’t already read Strengths Finder 2.0 and taken that assessment, I suggest you do so, because it should give you the language to express your strengths and help you to brainstorm some gigs for which you are especially well qualified. Check out the writing of Chris Guillebeau and Tim Ferriss. By Josh Kaufman, I recommend The First 20 Hours: How to Learn Anything… Fast!
and The Personal MBA. Also, you could read Influence by Robert Cialdini and Get Anyone to Do Anything by David J. Lieberman.

Here’s a thread discussing a specific example of a Buyer Request for which I created a gig and then asked for help improving that gig via the forum.

Thank you for the edits and info. I wasn’t aware that i can use pdf to show more samples and i will work on my slogan :slight_smile:
I truly appreciate that you made time to help me. Its my second day here and i have much to learn. People like you make it easy !!!


For some maybe, personally i only spent 6 months experimenting with videos and clicks + sales dropped. That was before you could choose a video thumb though! Anyway without videos my gigs climbed to the top of search results every time. My tests were done in graphics & design categories
