Review my first gig. I would be so grateful! I need my first costumer

Hello!

My name is Nicole Lilian and I’m new at Fiverr, I’m currently unemployed and I need 150 dollars a month for meds (I have Lupus) and I love editing so I decided to try this website. Can you guys give me some tips? Is my profile okay? Are my prices fair?

My gig:

Thank you so much!

Thanks, I’m always online and trying to promote my gig in some facebook groups I’m kind shy so that’s the difficult part.

Maybe expand your gigs, so as to offer more services.

Welcome to the Fiverr forums.

You only have 15 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.

Already linked this, but it’s worth repeating.

Sharing your gigs will only work if people buy them, and who buys an unrated gig they see on Facebook? No one I think.

In my opinion the best thing you can do is sell your gig to friends and business acquaintances in the real world and ask them to do the order on fiver. You lose 20% but you’ll start building your rating.

That’s a nice tip I’m trying to sell to some friend (: ! Agreed ,nobody will want a unrated work on facebook.

Actually, no. Don’t sell to family and friends. You can, however, ask if they might know someone who might be able to use your service(s), it’s up to you to follow up on that though. They know you and your work, and can vouch for you.

I would recommend following the the steps in the first video, and making sure your gig looks professional, before you do that, though. “You will never have a second chance to make a first impression.”

I do not know what is your target audience, but here we have people sensitive on Bro, brother, dear, mam, and similar things that are just not recommended in business environment, so the title of your basic package is a little risky.

Like I said, it depends on your target audience.

My suggestion would be to make a plan before you start creating anything new on Fiverr, research GIGs, compare them to the skills you have, plan your GIG images and description, taglines, make folders for each service you will offer and put the files there, prepare samples you will send out when someone asks for samples in those folders… Review Fiverr suggestions on how to use SEO when making gigs and only when you have your entire branding and concept visualized start making/adding new gigs.

Right now I am in process of rebranding all of my GIGs since I recently become a Level 2 seller and I got a promotion option on two of my gigs so I want to make sure that investment in promotion gets me, clients, not only for the promoted gig but for the rest too. I think it will take me a solid month to prepare everything.
So, word file for GIG description, pricing, FAQ, requirements (make them mandatory to prevent accidental orders), write down your time zone and working hours… you have plenty more tips on forum or you can check out my topic on my profile.
