Not new but don't have sale yet. What am i doing wrong?


Hi I am Geraldine, I’ve been here for quite sometime. I am thinking what I am doing wrong,haven’t had sales yet. I don’t think my profile or gig is showing up. Is it?I mean in the pages. Is there a link where the buyers can check out new sellers as well and not just the top rated ones? How can I improve my gigs?HELP…thanks:)


Welcome to fiverr! Check these posts out :slight_smile:


I suggest you to add more details in gig description!

Also send offers to “Buyer Requests” and you will get sales!

And stay online, that’s very important for you!

Don’t worry, because I got sale after one year!

I hope you will get many sales soon!

Best wishes!


Dear Geraldine:

I took a quick look at your profile:

Your profile image: You look like you’d turn me down if I asked you out, like you’re mad at me 'cause I did something stupid. Try smiling!
Your log line: Too generic. Try to make it cool, like, “Your Internet Messaging Virtual Universe Queen!”
Your profile text – note the edits:

Hi, I’m ready to help you with whatever you need for your graphics. I can create digital paintings. I can enhance photos for you. I have experience as a developer in a virtual world Instant Messaging Virtual Universe (IMVU) for 9+ years. I specialize in making / creating products for avatars. -Geraldine

All your gigs should have video, 3 images, 2 pdfs, and so on…

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

You should build gigs around keywords for the software packages you use, like Photoshop or whatever. You should spell out any acronyms the first time you use them. Assuming you are still active with IMVU, you should be publicizing yourself there.

Hey, guess what?! I just searched Fiverr for Instant Messaging Virtual Universe and found NO RESULTS!!!

Instead of competing in the overcrowded graphic design space, you could, if you create this gig right now before anyone else sees this post, be the queen of the IMVU of Fiverr! A pioneer! The first in your marketplace.

Just as @misscrystal is the first Witch on Fiverr, you could be the first IMVU Whatever on Fiverr.

Claim your power and be the first of your kind.

Now, you’ve really got a reason to smile…

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.

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.

wow thank you:) thank u such an inspiration:)


Oh I don’t think lots of ppl know IMVU since not a lot of ppl appreciates 3d worlds for chatting (i mean it’s kinda complicated so they go for the simple ones like messenger or viber or anything) so I don’t think it’ll be known,just added it as part of what I do. And thank you,now I just realize I am using a wrong picture :grinning: I will change that in a moment. And you’re right, lots of doing graphic stuffs already so it is hard to compete especially for a new one like me. Thank you, I will follow your tips:)


Dear Geraldine:

The key point here is that there are people who do know about IMVU, and if those people come to Fiverr looking for IMVU, they’ll find nothing, unless you use one of your gigs to focus on the IMVU keyword.

Then with your contacts in IMVUniverse, you can build your marketing plan around being the first on Fiverr to cater to these folks.

Please do not underestimate how powerful that is.

You can be unique and the first, or you can lose yourself in the multitudes of generic graphic designers.

Your choice.

Good luck,


Its prolly been a few weeks now no sales no nothing… I dont know what im doing wrong


I know it can be tough waiting. Try promoting your gigs on social media. Also, try tweaking your gig descriptions, tags etc.


Great thank you very much!! I have learned many things from you


I kind of fall into the same category with the poster but your comment just reassured me. Thanks




You’re not doing anything wrong. There are too few buyers on this site.
