If you plan to give Fiverr a try, here are three Fiverr tips to make the most of your experience:
Don’t use multiple accounts
Fiverr only allows one active account per user. Any attempts to cheat will result in all related accounts being disabled. You can read more about this in their Terms of Service.
Save your favorites
Sometimes searching Fiverr is like searching for the proverbial needle in the haystack. And when you do find the right service (or, as is often the case, another interesting service in your quest to find the right service), you want to make sure you don’t forget what it is.
To avoid that, save them for later to a separate collection, just like you do on Pinterest.
Always contact the seller before buying
The cool thing about Fiverr is that it allows buyers and sellers to message each other before an order is placed. Even if you’ve found the right gig that matches your requirements, don’t rush into hitting that Order button.
Near the seller’s profile, you will see a Contact me button that pops up into a contact window where you can briefly describe what you’re looking for. This will give you the opportunity to see the seller’s reply and learn a bit about them. Getting different answers will help you make a better choice in selecting the winning seller.
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
Instead, message the seller and explain why you are not happy with the results. Because ratings are very important to sellers, it’s likely they will offer to fix your issue without any additional fee.
It’s better to give sellers a chance to repair things before leaving them a bad rating. Most sellers will appreciate this and will try to help. Even if there might be a small delay, it’s still a win-win.
