New on Fiverr--- let's connect! + a few questions

Hi All-

I’m Rion of riondrum- obviously, I’m a drummer, and looking to record drums for people! I’m new on fiverr, and am looking for any suggestions people may have to getting gigs going. There are a LOT of drummers on here, and I would like to figure out how to stand out. I’ve been a professional drummer all my adult life, but since COVID, have lost all my paying gigs. Fortunately, I completed the construction of my home studio, and am set up to record drums from home. Now I just have to get people to know I’m here and ready to record.

One question- I uploaded my video on Thursday afternoon, and it’s now Monday, but the video still says ‘under review’. That’s several days over 24hrs- anyone else had trouble with their videos taking a long time? Any suggestions? is there anyone I can call?

Also, when I went to a private browser, and tried to search for my user name: riondrum, no users were found…? But my profile says “active”… so I’m not sure what’s going on there.

Thanks in advance for any help-

Rion

Welcome to the Fiverr forums.

You only have 3 minutes of read-time shown in your forum profile. Check out the Tips For Sellers category (with filters applied --> forum.fiverr.com/c/Fiverr-Tips/tips-for-sellers/l/top/all?order=views). You’ll find hundreds of threads offering advice on a variety of things to consider and/or improve. (Note: Not all advice can apply to all gigs or categories. Be sure you check multiple sources as there are some false tips, even among the top threads.)

It takes a lot of work to make it as a freelancer, so be sure to research and plan accordingly.

“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.” (Attributed to Benjamin Franklin)

Specific to your situation, please see the (DES) section: Basics to Improve Your Gig. A helpful breakdown and guide There are also a bunch of useful links in the (RRD) section.

Lastly, the video is pretty good, but the syncing seems off for the first two clips.

thanks imagination7413 for the thoughtful response- I’m a bit baffled by the sync on the vid. It looks ok on my computer (prior to upload) and even looks ok on my iphone- but on either Chrome or Safari on my mac it looks out of sync, as you mentioned. Can I ask how/where you’re viewing? it might help me figure out what’s going on…

I’ll spend some time at the links you suggested, thank you so much!

I use Chrome, though I opened your profile in incognito mode. (Also, I played in from the thumbnail. I didn’t go into the actual gig.)
