Hello dear,

Make a professional gig is not a big task as such, just add multiple packages and everything in details in description. Use common search tags as I mentioned in my post also use the eye-catching images as a cover photo.

You can visit multiple gigs and can get some ideas, but yes visit the gigs for only getting ideas not for copy paste purpose. Try to come up with your own expertise and uniqueness, hope you will receive your order soon and will make a market place here.

I have followed them all but to no avail :thinking:

Dear, I checked your profile and I hope you have followed all the instructions as you say but one point in the very last I mentioned you are not following, Stay motivated as no on can get a profit in one or two months in any business. And you are here from last only 2 and a half month as it is showing in your profile. Still you are done with one order.

I suggest you to check buyers request frequently and refresh you gigs on daily basis. Give some time here and you will receive a good response.

Its only 2 months so please be motivated!

Hello all, specially newbies!

Hope you all are doing good.

Well, as being a member of fiverr from last more than 2 years, I faced alot of things and got alot of experience and being a member of this platform fiverr forum I see many open topics specially from newbies asking only thing How to get order?

As being a responsible member or to maintain my trust on others on this forum I replied on many topics, help others in many ways which are possible from my side. But reading alot of questions on same topic, I conclude that there are few tips that I have to share separately instead of giving reply on all the post or the things that you should follow before posting a topic related to how to get order as I see in almost all the topics, people are asking how to get but haven’t implement any of the thing from the following which are so important specially for newbie and much common for the one who is aware with all that.

Please go through the following tips as these are the most important for those who are asking how to get first order or since (this month) haven’t receive any order etc etc.

1- First, and the most childish act which many of you are doing and asking for reviewing your profile,

Description on your profile means, a brief description of what you are and why you are here and what you will do or give to your client.

It doesn’t mean you start writing I am new here and want some work and I will do in free of cost etc etc as I see many newbies are doing this childish acts which is totally wrong and give a bad impact on buyers. So, use this description option to show yourself, not for begging purpose.

2- At No Level fiverr allow to make 5 gigs, so create all 5 gigs even if you have same category.

3- Place a cover photo “eye catching” which can grab the people’s attention easily. Gig covers are the best thing to grab some one’s attention so never try to copy covers from others, always try to come up with something unique.

4- Don’t copy the material from other gigs (specially pictures in graphics designing gigs).

May be this is common for you but buyers notice this alot if you are copying data while creating a gig then how less percent chances there will be that you will deliver something unique.So, try to come up with unique ideas .

5- Just mention the things in your gigs which you can do easily (be HONEST, don’t mention more than your expertise).

6- Use common search tags while creating a gigs. Don’t use unique keywords, because search tags are the most important thing as buyers use the search tags while searching for gigs.

7- As a beginner, start your gig packages with a less amount as this time you have to gain the buyer’s trust. So try to provide your service in a discounted price.

Less amount never means you start offering all the services in 5$, you have to check the market value by visiting multiple gigs, just try to offer little less amount than others.

8- Refresh your gigs on daily basis.

9- Check Buyers Requests frequently.

10- Also, you can share your gig link on social sites like linkedin, facebook pages etc. It can also help you.

All the above points are the most common and important that you should follow before asking for how to get order. These are things I noticed, from the very start nothing is implemented in the profile and in gigs but sellers are pretending like they did alot of efforts but not receiving any order.

After all of this, one thing which is the most important and that is Time. Keep this thing in your mind freelancing is not that easy as you think. You have to give alot of time, you have to gain alot of trust and also you have to wait alot too.

In no any business, no one start getting profit after a month or two. Struggle is the most important thing, indeed. And it is your business, so you have to be motivated, always!

I’m sure, after following all the above points you will receive your order soon. And, after receiving your order, try to give your best to your client, try to do some chit chat with your client to gain his trust, ask everything in detail and deliver your best as much as possible. Because, first review on your profile will be the first impression of your profile.

In the end, I wish you all a very best of luck and yes, Thanks alot for reading this post.

Always be motivated, Never lose Hopes!

Best regards,

8- Refresh your gigs on daily basis.

What do you mean by “refresh”? Because if you mean ‘edit’, than I have to disagree. Editing should be done as little as possible, and as much as needed.

I agree with everything but one thing. DO NOT create all 5 gigs, unless you actually have 5 different things that you can do. If you start doing repetitive or too similar gigs, you’re only losing in the long run as your reviews will be scattered, making each gig less appealing to buyers.

Instead, create fewer gigs, but make each one completely unique. Of course, they can be in the same category, just let each one stand on its own.

Let’s say that you get 10 reviews. If they’re all on one gig, that’s good, people searching for you will see that you’re getting traffic, that you’re trustworthy. If they’re scattered over 5 different gigs, chances are, people will much easier just pass you by. Remember, clients are searching by gigs, not profiles, so your total review count rarely matters.

Dear @erotica_book,

I really appreciate, you tried to find something wrong in it. But actually you are right at your point but as I mentioned this post is specially for newbies who are looking for how to get order as soon as possible. So, I just figure out the basic possible legal ways for gaining more attention from buyers.

Your point is good and correct but this is for when a seller are in running condition so he/she can think on it whether they want all the reviews on a single gig or more. But the one who is new on fiverr and want some more attention and not receiving any order, don’t you think it is good way to make all 5 gigs? I mentioned create all 5 gigs even if you have a single category, it means I am not recommending this, but I am suggesting if you have only single category (rare cases) so you can make gigs in this way. And moreover, did you think if a buyer has only one category of working, will he stuck only for one gig?

It’s not that much difficult as you are thinking, it’s totally simple and basic tips (specially for newbies who always want to know or post a topics on daily basis for how to get order. So, I just summed that up for them to follow these instructions.

Hope you get your answer my friend.

Dear @imagination7413,

Thanks for asking this valid question. Let me clear that,

First, let me know please why do you think editing should be done as little as possible?

Editing never means to change the complete topic or complete stuff. Well, lets come to the question, the only way to refresh the gig in fiverr, is to open your gig in edit mode and click on save and preview button (you don’t need to edit your gig). By doing this, you can confirm this under your gig option (option on the upper bar of fiverr page), the gig you saved last will automatically comes to the top of all, it means your gig is now refreshed.

Also, you can understand this by comparing your gig clicks and impressions from the time before refreshing.

Hope you get your answer.

Wrong. Sellers without level can create up to 7 Gigs.

Gigs®

Sellers are allowed to post a select amount of active Gigs based on their Level status.

7 Gigs for Sellers without a Level status.

The short answer is that Fiverr reviews edits, so the algorithm doesn’t work the same while it’s in review.

I recommend this talk on Sunday on Youtube to everyone here who is serious:

Hey everyone! I think it’s time to put together the second lecture, there was a conflict in my schedule so I now planning on going live this Sunday February 9th, at 7 pm GMT +2. I apologize for this change but I think aside from the calendar mishap, this will give me some more time to prepare the lecture. I will close the poll Friday night my time, so that I have enough time to prepare on the subject you will pick. slight_smile Here’s a poll for you to vote on what you’d like for me to cov…

Yes I’m spamming the forum with this but this is the best learning experience I’ve seen.

This is true. I heard many people say how their gigs tank in the rankings the more they edit them.

I wonder if I delete and start new gigs (because I still have zero orders, and I know for a fact that I followed all the rules to have a clear gig) I’ll have any luck in the rankings.

Yes @iris_s91, these are just a tricks that we understand after spending alot of time here as this is not a fact or not mentioned in fiverr terms.

I personally experienced this after sharing a gig, my gig comes up to tops in all of my gigs and I start seeing views and impressions and after a day or some time I start receiving messages from buyer on the same gig which I reshared.

And yes, to share a gig again the only option is to open in edit mode, never means you are restrict to edit it in any way, you just need to open in edit mode or for your own satisfaction you can do a minor editing like put somewhere full stop or anything and share it again.

Dear @asadmpk, hope you get your answer too as it is mentioned above in the same reply.

dear Sarmad, can you please have a short look my gig, just to identify major mistakes if any? I have refined my gigs and updating them almost everyday, but not receiving orders yet.

Thanks for sharing. I would like to add with your article a few tips. I am new here. But Fiverr removed my gig. I am sad because I am not eligible for the next level. I would ask all the new comers to read and follow the terms and regulations, levels and warnings carefully.
InshaAllah I will promote my gigs by following your advice.

Dear, There are some reasons why fiverr remove anyone’s gig. Surely, you copy the cover picture from google as fiverr identifies that. Or if it is not, you surely copy other stuff. Please read terms and conditions and you will not face any more issue.

Well, try to make gig by your own expertise and show your uniqueness.

Best of luck! Soon you will be eligible for next level, work hard!

I did not copy anyone. I am a content writer. I used the word product review in my description and title. I guess the system was not able to differentiate. I am in trouble now.
