Hello I am Sara Khan,
I am Graphic designer , I used Fiverr for many years and then I shifted to Upwork but now again I am back with my new id. So here are few tips for newbies as I have been asked many times to share some tips and tricks …
**I will be sharing this link with my students on Facebook.
1-First of all newbies should read about Fiverr rules and regulations and should be aware of at least those rules which can cause troubles to them by blocking their id, specially use multiple ids on same IP which cause serious troubles.
2-Your gig should be attractive and description should be give all the details you have including all the services you offer e.g any vector files, business cards and any other service you offer and use keywords in descriptions as well.
3-Video- Put a video to show the samples you have done which is important because you cannot show all your work in 3 photos Your new gig is without any client reviews.
4-Buyers Request- This is the most important part of my topic , I have gained my first order by buyer request within 24 hours and for the next few months I have used this feature of Fiverr. Many people know about this feature but don’t know how to use it properly .
Buyer request is the part of Fiverr where buyers post their requirements and let the sellers to bet on their request and it work similar to search engine which means that buyer will only see first few requests and most importantly Fiverr send the email to the buyer along with the bet of first person in it and a link to accept that offer. So try to send request to those offers which are with zero request sent, this will increase the probability of fetching the order. So it means you have to see when Fiverr upload new buyer requests and you will see that within the seconds the offer sent will be constantly increasing , so
a- first note the timing of the Fiverr uploading new request which is a difficult job as no body knows it
and also you have only 10 requests to send so try to read the request and send offer instantly
b- You will have 10 offers limit for 24 hours and you can send offer of even $100-$1500 or more.
c- Tip is that make quick action description in sticky notes and copy and past it while sending offers.
Some buyer dont like it but I work most of the time.
5- Positive review is very very important so don’t go with price in first place but reviews you can go with higher price after getting level 1 seller or level 2 seller, depends on you . I have done first 10 logos for $10 each and the $20 and increasing slowly . You should wait for and build you gig and Account , Don’t expect much initially my recommendation is for 2 months at least because it will take 2 months to cross level 2 seller .
Its not all the tips and tricks but these all tips are worthy , you can do many experiments to discover new tips as well , its just matter of time and you will get orders once you start trying different things .
I am open for any suggestions regarding my writing and Graphics work.Fell free to contact me.
