Ok, you want to make some money but you do not speak English well.
This is a real problem when you are going to sell on a marketplace where most buyers do and most communication is done through English. It can be done though, here are some tips for you to follow which will help you while you are working on your English.
Be realistic about your gigs - Do not try to offer gigs that require excellent English. If you want to offer a writing gig, ask a native English speaker to be honest with you about something you have written. Ask them if it is good enough to pay for. If not, don’t write.
Proofreading is something that most native English speakers are not qualified to do, it requires an excellent understanding of English including grammar, punctuation and sentence structure to name a few. It’s just not a gig for you, try it and it will leave you with bad reviews.
If you do not understand what someone has said, SAY I DON’T UNDERSTAND! - This is the most annoying thing for me as a buyer. People pretending they understand what I say and then doing the completely wrong thing. Just ask the buyer to explain it better, they will.
I ask buyers this all the time when I don’t understand what they want, so should you.
Learn the key words and phrases of your gig - Whatever gig you offer, there will be other people who do the same as you. Look up websites about what you are offering. If it’s computer related, go to a technology website forum and get involved. If it’s logo design, do the same. Whatever it is, knowing the key phrases will make a huge difference.
Work on your English. Read English newspapers, websites, blogs and watch English speaking TV, mix with English speakers when you can. It will all help. (Try to make sure that the English you are learning is proper English, if it is from someone else who can’t speak English well then you will just make the same mistakes as them)
Don’t take it personally when someone says they don’t understand you or if they question how good your English is before they buy. Let them know that you don’t speak English well but that your work is good and you will ask them to explain anything you don’t understand. If they don’t order after that, don’t worry, it’s probably better that they don’t if they are not prepared to make some effort to communicate well.
Read the Fiverr Terms of Service and the Forum Do’s and Dont’s. What may be perfectly good to do in your culture can be seen badly by other cultures. This is not a judgement by anyone, it is just a fact that sometimes causes problems. Reading the rules will mean you don’t offend people or worse, get your account suspended.
There is lots more I could say about this but I will finish this post there. Many people love working with people from other countries, myself included. I believe that working with different nationalities and cultures can produce fantastic results as there is different ideas and inspiration that can come from it. Be inspired.
