- Don’t use multiple accounts
- Save your favorites
- Always contact the seller before buying
- Use a secret word : When posting a request, make sure to add a secret word in the project description, asking sellers to mention it when making an offer to your request.
You’d be surprised to see that almost 50% of the orders will miss it. This will help you weed out people that haven’t actually read the request, and go with the most motivated ones.
- Don’t leave bad ratings unless it’s unavoidable
- Use some best practices to get faster results
- Do a trial run before requesting a bigger project
- Earn money with the referral program
- Ignore the “Top offers” from Fiverr email: After placing a request, offers will start pouring in. And Fiverr will announce this by sending you an email with a selected list of “top offers”.
Here’s one of my top Fiverr tips: Don’t rush into getting those “selected” offers. Fiverr picks them randomly, choosing the first level 1-2 sellers that reply to your request. The two offers I got did not mention the secret word and they were certainly not the most interesting ones I’ve received.
Remember – an automated email is never going to be as good as your human eye!
- Be professional: Like any service, Fiverr should be handled professionally. Keep in mind someone’s business may depend on you, so try to:
Be patient with communication – you never know what may be causing a delay in response.
Fairly value people’s work and, remember, you can always compensate with a tip.
Do not use bad language – “Communication on Fiverr should be friendly, constructive, and professional. Fiverr condemns bullying, harassment, and hate speech towards others.”
Be reasonable with deadlines and allow the seller enough time to modify and review the work. Do not threaten to cancel or give a bad review.
