Not getting orders, what am I doing wrong?


#1

I have made a GIG to design and develop websites, I have made it a lot cheaper than others but still not getting orders. I have had about 25 clicks.Here is the gig what do you suggest to improve? Thanks

Dear Yudi:

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

Here’s a link to a transcript of a Fiverrcast episode discussing Analytics:
http://blog.fiverr.com/fiverrcast-episode-29-understanding-analytics-transcript/

I took a quick look at your profile:

Your profile image: You look like a kid. Dress for success with a shirt and tie. Smile. Your goal is to make the Buyer feel they know, like, and trust you.
Your log line: is boring. What does the UK have to do with being a web developer? Did you look at the line that appears below your log line, the one that indicates that your location is “United Kingdom”. Is that redundant in this context? Is it just saying the same thing twice, when you could be making those precious characters work for you more effectively?
Your profile text – note the edits:

Hi, I am a creative Web Designer & Developer. I will create a unique and compelling website for you. I specialise in PHP/HTML/CSS and responsive design. -Yudi [or whatever name Buyers should call you]

You should make it clear to your Buyers whether you are willing and able to use proper American spellings in your communication for one very compelling reason: 'Murica!

I’m not going to spell out PHP, HTML, and CSS for you, but in general it’s a good idea to spell out any acronyms the first time you use them. Did you know that PHP is recursive?

Imagine that… an acronym that recurses back on itself.

Much like a timey, wimey, great big ball of string…

Your challenges are threefold:

  1. Overcome the fact that you look 12 years old by presenting yourself as a professional in the way you dress and in the way you conduct yourself.
  2. Overcome the fact that you seem to be interested in “Internet Things” (IT) by learning to communicate to Buyers in their language
  3. Overcome your rookie mistake of trying to compete on price when you need to learn to compete on quality and value, by teaching yourself copy writing.

You seem brighter than your average blighter, so the good news is that you can educate yourself to overcome these challenges. Please study the resources below very carefully.

Leverage the power of Fiverr by hiring a copy writer to make your text more compelling. Hire a ghost writer to write a helpful ebook in your area of expertise. Harness your creativity and youthful exuberance to crush it on Fiverr.

Even though you said that you have heavily discounted your prices, your one gig starts at $10.

That’s a logical contradiction, and so I have to conclude my remarks here by informing you that it would behoove you to look around to make the most of the educational resources that will help you succeed as a freelancer.

All your gigs should have video, 3 images, 2 pdfs (for more samples and your business policies), and so on…

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

Good luck,
Blaise

Be sure to make use of Tools like the Fiverr Blog, Fiverr Academy, Fiverrcast, and Fiverr Support.

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: https://forum.fiverr.com/t/the-big-day-i-finally-ask-blaisefaint-to-critique-my-gig/104448 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.
