Fiverr doesn’t offer anything related to food, as far as I know.
I really don’t want to crush your dreams, but your voice samples in your gigs are terrible. None of your gigs have acceptable descriptions. The only image you use that is any good is the one for the writing gig, which I strongly suspect is a stock image.
Fiverr is fiercely competitive, and you don’t really have anything to offer.
Honestly, if you’re just starting off, Facebook marketplace might be better, and you can sell baked goods locally.

“Your voice samples in your gigs are terrible,” for one I didn’t have the microphone I have now then. I’m new here and I don’t really know what to do.

Thank you for that and being nicer.

I do hate being blunt. The internet and text doesn’t permit the option of ‘letting someone down gently.’ That said, if you have a better microphone, get new voice samples ASAP.The saying ‘first impressions are everything’ has major relevance when you only get one chance to impress. You only get the ‘new seller’ status for a short time, and that’s the best way to get yourself going. Once you loose that, getting sales is crazy hard.

I want to be a baker so could I use Fiverr to get money from what I bake or is this just for online things?

In defense of the OP, he/she didn’t ask for critiques concerning his/her profile or gigs. People can easily flag off-topic posts and the Moderators will agree.

On-Topic:

OP, personally, I would never buy desserts 🥧 When it comes to sanitation for one, ingredients which I’m allergic to certain ones and other factors. Honestly, I don’t think Fiverr is the site for offering baked goods.

I highly recommend reading The Sellers Education & Help Center. Educate yourself! 🍍

Very, true. I should have double-checked the category first. That was my bad, and I’m sorry.

@newplus_design I know this is off topic, however, you should read these because it appears you may not have.

Forum Rules + Do's and Dont's

Especially this part:

Contacting other users, moderators/admins by private message/inbox is not absolutely disallowed, but unless invited it is considered a breach of etiquette to do so.

I have to agree. I’m also sorry but “I’m new and don’t know what to do” doesn’t hold any weight on Fiverr. (Or any other freelance platform.)

You have asked about baking. - Put simply, no, it is not possible to use Fiverr for baking. At least, if you mean baking goods and sending them via mail to buyers. There are several food safety and basic practicality problems with this idea.

Things you could do could include:

  • Selling recipes.
  • Creating baking videos.
  • Offering baking related article writing.

However, you would have to investigate and see if there is a market for this. My hunch is that even if there is, it’s tiny.

As for your audio samples, you are not thinking like a buyer.

A buyer does not buy a voice product to hear your voice or support your career. They buy voice and audio services because they need to include work on ad and web content that will be consumed by a large audience. They, therefore, need the best audio quality possible.

The same basic rule applies to anything you want to sell. If you did want to look at creating baking videos, you would need to be able do deliver high-quality media. The same is true for writing.

Moving on to writing, I’d strongly advise you to stop offering to write an 80,000 to 100,000-word book for $80. Doing so is not possible.

You might be able to speed write 2,700 words a day for 29-days. However, the quality is going to be appalling. The only way to ensure it won’t be is if you have a finished manuscript independently edited and proofed.

You are also not going to get buyers who want to read a book you write for themselves. You are going to get buyers who want to sell the book you write on Amazon. This being the case, if they are not happy with the finished result, they will ask for revisions and refunds and all your hard work will end up being for nothing.

In short, sorry, but you really need to go back to the drawing board on a lot of your gigs and start over.

Is there any advice that you have for me so I don’t make the same mistake?

I like the family tree gig. I think you should say how many generations back you will go for the basic price. It’s takne me a few years to go back about seven generations in mine but then I didn’t do it steadily.

Also take into account some people are adopted, or have other obstacles to doing a family tree. However it’s an interesting gig.

Also this is an international website and we all get clients from around the world so you could specify that you only are able to do the US, or whatever countries you have access to. Many countries don’t have records available.

Also I probably coudln’t have gone back past one generation or two except that I took a DNA sample to a couple of websites that specialize in this. They matched me up with thousands of cousins so that I could trace my ancestors.

You could change the word counts/prices in your writing gig, eg. to a lower word count maximum to start off with, at least until you see how the gig goes, or maybe you could do only sections of the book at a time (eg. max 50,000 word section instead of 100,000 words).

For baking, if not videos/recipes (which has been suggested) maybe photos.

So, to verify: you didn’t pick Fiverr, it was picked for you.

I noticed in your profile you graduated this year, so you have enormous potential for improvement, if you’re willing to put in some hard work and be willing to learn.

I’m still in High School really. I graduate in 2021 and I was going to fix it but I don’t know how.

I agree! It’s not safe. A buyer wouldn’t know how the food is handled. The temperature and storage, etc. It’s just too risky to take a chance.

Things you could do could include:

  • Selling recipes.
  • Creating baking videos.
  • Offering baking related article writing.

@angels_roses Cy offered golden tips.

To add to Cy’s list, maybe set up shop at a local farmer’s market.
