It’s been said many times that having good photos for your gigs is what might be one of the things that will make potential clients think about purchasing your gig. Obviously, I don’t advise people to go ahead and steal other people’s photos, but how to create an interesting design if you don’t know to work with any software.
If you want to spend for your gig photo, you can always do a search and there are tons of great sellers that actually offer GREAT gig photos. I can’t find the link, but there is a top rated seller that actually only provides tips on improving your Fiverr profile.
You can go to Canva.
Choose custom size. Enter 550 Pixels by 370. Pick the fonts that you like, you can use a lot of free fonts, icons, illustrations in order to come up with something. It is pretty easy to work in Canva so you don’t need to be an expert for design. You just need to know what look good for the eye.
Some tips from me:
Keep the design simple, use as little text as possible, just your headline. Use icons/photos that represent your gig. Definitely, pick fonts which aren’t the “Comic Sans” or “Impact”.
