Reply to mikedin: my sales have dropped off significantly also not sure what is wrong. I did move my gig from Other to Lifestyles Categories hoping that makes a difference. I used to see my gig featured on the main page, I never see it there anymore

My advice-



Carefully choose your deadlines for delivery. You might think you’re giving yourself plenty of time to do a gig but then you get three or four orders at once. Your kid may get sick or the weather knocks out your power.



If you’re going to be late delivering your work (and you will at some point) then be honest. Give a brief explanation of the problem and when you can deliver. I find that a client who knows what is going on will be more understanding.



Never turn in shoddy work, even if the gig is only for $5. A good rule of thumb is to ask if you would give this product to your mother or best friend. The client who only pays $5 now may come back with a $20 or $50 order.



Request clear instructions from the buyer up front. It is not profitable to redo work over a misunderstanding.

"Don’t rely on Fiverr’s system to get you orders. You need to actively promote your own gigs. I have sold over $12,000 of gigs in the last year, I do it by promoting it myself"



I think you are pointing to the most important issue here: Traffic!



Most people tell us how to structure your offer or service, like over-delivery. Thats all correct

but I think first of all people must know that your offer EXISTS!



How exactly do you promote your offer? do you visit forums relevant to your gig and

make useful posts or do you somehow promote your gigs directly?

Ask the customer to leave positive feedback. When I make delivery I always write the follow:



“Please take a moment to leave positive feedback for me and I’ll do the same for you” 8 times out of 10 the customer will post something positive!



And if you can, do the gig as soon as you get it. The faster you make delivery the happier your customers will be.

Providing value is what it is all about. Always put yourself in the shoes of the buyer when sending your Gig through. Think if this is something you would tell your friends about or even bother to provide a review. Keep all interaction with your buyer on a positive note.

It’s about being patient once you start out. Depends on how descriptive you are with your gigs. Also videos are more helpful and attracts more people to your gigs. Always be polite with a buyer even if they are being uneasy. Make sure you deliver on time. If you cannot let the buyer know you need more time. If you estimate you can do a gig in 2 days you should add another 1-2 days just incase.

Reply to @techfob:



Agree, honestly develops trust, trust and a good rapport will go far. I have already repeat clients. Mistake? hmmm it happens, I just find it hard to say "Im sorry"



For a couple of reasons. 1. It positions you in a bad light with who you are dealing with

2. It lowers your self-esteem and confidence.



SO, what is the alternative. Accept what you did, correct it immediately and give better service. I always affirm, correct, move on with value…



but thats me, KEY is not falling into mistakes or a pattern where you are there…process on some things are difficult and its not a MISTAKE it a point to pause for client feedback is one way of looking at it…



Lets make it better…for you.



that sort of approach

Always believe in making true and honest relationships and forget the consideration of your Gig (i.e. $5). We spend so much time in chatting on social networks/friends, most of the time only for the sake of time-pass and in actual got nothing to remember.



I can assure you all, if you start taking your clients (buyers) in a way that it would be a life-time business relationship which would also include; business ethics, humanity, honesty, professionalism, commitment and sincere advises, then it would not be the case of earning $5, in fact you will start giving worth to your own time which would worth a lot more than $5.



In nut-shell; Start giving worth to your time by delivering the best you can and treat those $5 only as a bonus.

Hey everyone, I want to share my success with you from Fiverr. What I’m going to tell you really changed my Fiverr status - I started seeing so many sales it was almost impossible for me to complete them all (that’s when I learned about outsourcing).



Anyway, the key to success on Fiverr is traffic. I’m pretty sure you know by now that more traffic = more sales = more money. Have you noticed the top sellers are the ones promoting their gigs outside of Fiverr? They get tons of traffic from recommendations on Forums, marketers, etc…



This is what separates the top sellers from everybody else. It wasn’t until I learned that “secret” - that traffic is the key to sales and exposure in the online community to become a top seller on Fiverr. Fiverr is a LOT better than having a 9-5.



Good Luck!
