I’ve been trying to do some research on what might be more appealing to buyers when they choose one seller over another. I know for sure that first things first you need to offer a killer service but there’s so many talented people on fiverr, I’m curious what makes some stand out against others.
One thing I’ve noticed is that I got a lot more inquiries and interest when I switched from a “professional logo” to a picture of myself. I think people really appreciate being able to see a face, specifically if a buyer is new to hiring freelancers. Some folks are kind of timid about doing business online still.
So that lead me to wondering if I should have a video of myself saying hello and explaining the services I offer or should I simply leave the thumbnails with the portfolio items for buyers to listen to?
Have you tried both and noticed any difference? Share your thoughts!
