When did you guys get your first purchase


Recommended Posts

Hi there…,

The problem is…, you play on a very crowded service…, and there no strong or unique talent requirement to this kind of service. “New designer” could do this kind of service with same or even cheaper price.

You sholud offer something more specific that most new seller can’t provide.

Lastly: You use watermarked image for your thumbnail? this is a bad image for your proffesionalism

Wish you luck,

No I don’t have anyone targeted at this point

That may be a good thing to start with. You won’t be able to sell much, until you know exactly to whom you wish to sell it. You need a developed market, before you have a service you know that market needs.

It was about a month for me! It is a little difficult to start off because you find that a lot of people want to buy from a seller with good reviews, so you get the short end of the stick when you do not even have 1.

If you are not already, I would search the buyer requests. Avoid over-saturated markets, like Logos. If the request has 25+ offers already, then let it go.

You may need to make your gig more interesting too! So many people do “Photo Retouches” (even the ones that have no clue what they are doing), and a lot of people know how to make their backgrounds disappear (even though it might not as good). Make either your title/gallery stand out! Choose eye-catching photos that show the best of your skill! Nothing too mundane. Also, diversify your gigs too! Other than photo editing, is there a skill that you can profit off of?

I like your idea of Facebook/Instagram ads! It is very specific, and the image really works with it! See, if you made the title say, “I will draw something for you”, now you’re in an over-saturated field like illustration/art with an unnoticeable, boring title!

Once you get your first order/review, then you have your foot in door with (hopefully) a 5 star rating! Also, it does not hurt to take the Fiverr tests that apply to you. English, etc.

In short, great title/picture, and BUYER REQUESTS.

Thanks for replying, didn’t expect anyone to help me out this much. I don’t really know what a buyers request is. I’ve heard that word being used is it like a feature on fiverr and where do I see it from? 😀

It took about a month for me, then I did some buyer requests and it took off from there. Now I am level one. You still have to actively promote your gig and profile elsewhere. Add it to your social media profiles and when people visit your profiles, they’ll click on your fiverr link.

Hi @wordplay101

Can you explain this:
Hi, my name is Moosa Talha and I’m a hardworking 15-year old who’ll transcribe videos for you. My favorite subject is sociology, in which we have to transcribe hours of interviews, every other day, therefore I believe that I’m capable enough to do such a task, as a job. I sometimes help my friends out with transcription essays, and usually get a lot of requests from my school members, as I’m very good at such time-consuming tasks.

And your GIGs that have nothing to do with this. Plus I would remove the part where you say you write essays for others since that is a direct violation of Fiverr TOS.

Remove the essays from your profile description, it is just a matter of time someone is going to report you.

The description is to small and all in one connected text. make separations, make a paragraph, bold some keywords, ad keywords, add more images.

Proofread your text.

Stay safe.

Your transcript “samples” were stolen too. Stop stealing people’s work and show your own. That marine interview is the #1 search result in Google for interview transcript samples. STOP IT!

Imagine someone hiring you to remove a dead tree with many branches from behind someone with really curly hair and expecting the same level of quality the Leighton Meester image has. It’d be a disaster. You should exhibit samples of your own work.

Most of the people on many gigs don’t provide their own work a lot of the time when they begin, as I get more experienced and start getting more examples of my work I’ll be able to replace these images with my own

You can’t be serious right now.

If you were talking to a 26 year old and above who came here to exploit the system, OK, but unless she is lying, she is 15. And she is new here. I hardly believe that she will have orders in next month or two, and if she does that will make me next queen of England, so yes, OK, she is making some rookie mistakes because she sees that is what everyone is doing. Do you want to go on Fiverr and see how many faker sellers are out there with stolen artwork and google images?

15, OK? Different mentality. She is not some “I come on Fiverr, he, stupid americans will pay me, he, me work nothing, they be stupid, me rich, he, hi, he”

So, lets be constructive and supporting without shouting.
