Problem with freshies

I joined Fiverr recently .My gigs are virtual assistant (including Data entry,documentation) ,F
files conversion and articles writing. I am expert in these tasks.
Talking about my writing experience, I write out articles in daily life.Similarly I have worked at an institution and arranged many documents and articles for that institution.
My gigs had 15 views after 3 days I created.I have sent some buyers requests but they didn’t even ask me about. Even I was the one to send first offer to some requests and not getting order.A person asked me to send a test article,I worked hard and prepared an article with 0% plagiarism but he said he had many applications and pleased with writing but didn’t ask still more.
What do you people recommend me?What should I do?

Don’t give people free work.


If you only joined/created your gigs recently, you might just need to give yourself more time, keep sending offers to Buyers Requests and maybe work on your profile and gig descriptions so long. Your profile and slogan look very ‘busy’ to me, for example, I´d recommend adding spaces after punctuation marks. I´d scrap the ‘is my hobby’ too; if you want to sell articles, you shouldn´t consider it a hobby and potential buyers usually don´t want someone who does whatever they want to buy as a hobby but professionally.

I think there is a lot of competition for your gigs as you have them now - you say you did ‘Electrical engg.’ (I can guess you mean engineering, but I´d type it out, still). Perhaps you could try variations of your gigs leveraging your education in that field, you know, leave the ‘general’ gigs, but also make some more specific to your experience, ‘I will write an article on (whatever fields/subjects you are especially knowledgeable about because of your Electrical Engineering background)’.
Lastly, if nothing you try, neither giving it more time, works, you might want to consider trying with fewer ‘trades’ but concentrate on the 1 or 2 things you can do best or which are similar things. The less different services someone offers, the more specialised the few they do offer, look like, I think.

Hope any of that might help. Good luck!


Find Your Niche:
The best Gig ideas are small, scalable tasks that only take you a few minutes to complete. As a seller, your first assignment is to break down your skillset into a small offering that it makes sense to sell starting at $5.00. When defining what exactly your Gig will be, ask yourself:
Does it take me a few (5 to 15 minutes) to complete this action?
Is this action or service scalable? Could I deliver multiples of it in batches?
Are there extra services or components that could be built onto this task?
If your answer to all of those questions is “Yes”, then you have a viable Gig on your hands!

Fiverr’s services start at $5.00. Although it can be tempting to offer promotions or discounts so that the orders will start rolling in, offering your work for free is not a recommended approach to connect with sellers. It is important to set your potential buyer’s expectation that your work can’t be obtained for free. It’s essential to know your worth as a seller and not to compromise it in order to attempt attracting buyers.

I made certain changes that when I made my account I didn’t change.Now I made changes ,can you have a look.

Looks good! I hope the new gig with the more specific article writing will work for you, and the others too, of course. :slight_smile:

Always do a good proofreading of all your texts, to avoid any typos, like you have ‘_Any’ in your ‘convert documents’ gig, I don´t think the underscore belongs there? Just read everything an extra time or two, or maybe let a friend or relative have a look, it´s much easier for others to notice errors than for oneself, hence the proofreading gigs. For some gigs, it won´t matter that much, but people who are looking for writers, someone to convert their files and the like, I think many care about such details.


There are at least 21 grammatical errors in your first post.

There are already too many who offer their services as writers who are not able to write correctly.

Unless you want to start your fiverr career getting bad reviews I suggest that you eliminate that writing gig.

I do welcome you to fiverr and wish you much success here. When you write professionally, you need to know correct grammar and this is something you do not have a handle on at this point.

I recommend going all through this site including the part where it talks about when to use capital letters:


This was an informal post.

A good lesson.Next time,I’ll take care of it in normal conservation,too

You all helped me a lot.I recognised today that in informal writing,I never cared about grammatical mistakes. I learned a big deal to write with correct grammar and punctuation wherever you write either formal or informal especially for a writer whose all concerns are these things.
Thank you all.
