Hello Newbie Fiverr Members.
I just wanted to write up a little info about how you can improve your gig with Fiverr V2. I think what fiverr has done here with their website is outstanding. Im a website developer and designer, from my professional prospective, fiverrs V2 is a massive leg up in the right direction. However some people feel that the new V2 has done them harm in some way or another, while others seem a little confused.
Fiverr has in the past shown members how they can improve their gigs, so maybe what I am saying here is nothing new, but then, anyone who is reading this, may feel it will benefit them in some way. Please note, my suggestions are simply suggestions, I am not sharing my advice on the basis you will think you will get 100 sales, if you do get a increase, after making the gigs or making changes to your gig in light of this information, then feel free to come back and make a comment if I was able to help! I would appreciate that…
Ok, so down to business!
Tip Number 1
Title Your Gig Accordanly
The title of your gig is going to be extremely important here, you must remember that the title of your gig becomes the URL. So If your gig is offering to make little baby booties that you knit yourself, then you should consider a Title like: I will… "make a pair of hand Knitted baby booties"for $5!. Be straight to the point and descriptive about what you will do. Simple as that!
Tip Number 2
A Picture Tells A Thousand Words
Thats right folks. When it comes to images they are a powerful marketing tool. You can simple tell a story with the right images, take a moment to think about your gig and what message you want to get across. Emotional selling is something to think about, how can your gig help the buyer? With your images, you then can add some text for your message. Fiverr allows you to have three (3) images and one (1) video attached to your gig. Think outside the box for a minute… HOW MUCH REAL ESTATE IS THAT? Honestly it is HEAPS!
- Images should be of a relative high quality, so they crisp and clear.
- Choose images that are related, that help tell your story.
- Keep your text on the images descriptive to your offer only - short yet descriptive.
- If you have done work before, take some pics of your best work or screen shots and use these, as your work will speak for itself.
- Create a video or slideshow of more of your images to use for your video - a 30 second video can have a lot of information in it - THINK about TV commercials, how much information is in a short commercial that gets the message across?
- Lastly - Name your images and videos relating to your gig. Img Example: Pink-Knitted-Booties(DOT)jpg
- Optional: add a little music (on low) behind the video or slideshow and/or add your own voice to tell your buyers what they will be getting and the benefits. (if you dont want to use your own voice, seek out someone on fiverr to complete a voice over for you)
Tip Number 3
Be VERY descriptive
In our new and improved V2 of Fiverr, sellers now have the ability to use a little WYSIWYG editor. This for me was very exciting, because layout is very important for easier readability. Space your paragraphs correctly, Use headings and bold them. Give a opening short paragraph on who you are targeting, for instance: Hand Knitted Baby Booties… Maybe it will start like this…
Satisfaction Guaranteed - 100% pure wool hand knitted baby booties will keep your little precious babies feet warm in the winter months. I have been knitting for over 25 years for mums and dads in my local town, I am offering my talent and services to fiverr members by hand knitting your baby booties to help keep their little babies feet warm. I only use 100% wool in array of different colours, unlike socks, my hand knitted baby booties are thick and very warm and soft on your babies skin without any irritations… BLAH BLAH…
Then Add some next paragraphs of what you are willing to do. Perhaps you had different knitting types, or combinations etc etc… Just give your paragraphs space, and make a couple of heading to help people indentify what messages your trying to convey across.
Use your title or very similar words only a couple of times through the description.
Tip Number 4
Tagging is searching
Tagging is one of the most important features in your gig. Tagging helps been found in the search results. You dont need to use words twice in any combination, just use the words once, so choose what audience you are targeting, it could be businesses, or music artists, or babies. For Hand Knitted Baby Booties, I would most likely use - knitting, booties, babies, socks, hand knit.
Really think about this, if you really get stuck, go and take a peek at some of the successful sellers on fiverr and see how they are tagging their gigs! It may help.
Tip Number 5
Choosing the right categories
Be sure to place your gig in the correct categories, you dont want to end up the river without a paddle. It important to be found in the right location. So choose what is or what is the closest related category to what you are offering. This way when people are search for your type of services they will find you in the category that you are in, your chances of obtaining more buyers will be increased.
