I have noticed that there are more and more writers selling their wares on fiverr. I know that many of you are very good at what you do, and this post is not really for you. I’m speaking here to those that maybe don’t have English as a first language or are really struggling to get gigs. Bear with me as I give you a few ideas on how to make your fiverr presence something that will attract buyers.
- Sort out your profile page and gigs
If you want people from the US, UK and Australia to buy your gigs then you really need to be able to convince them that you are up to the job. Undercutting others is one way to be considered but it really isn’t a sustainable way to do business. Instead of trying to compete on price, why not try to compete on quality?
Get someone to look over your profile and gig pages to ensure that they are in perfect English. Nothing puts off a buyer who wants something written that a seller who appears to not be able to write in a style that might work for them.
- Consider a proof reader
If your English isn’t up to scratch then why not consider using a proof reader to help get your work up to the required standard? They will charge less to proof-read than you will to write so it is a sound investment. Your customers will get the content that they need (and deserve) while you can get your hands on more orders and establish yourself on fiverr.
- Stop spinning!
Spinning websites are terrible and they just don’t work one little bit. Never use them and never, ever subject your customers to them.
You want to be able to connect with your potential customers on their own level. Follow these tips and you will start to get a foothold in the lucrative and interesting world of writing.
