How to sell art on fiverr? Tips for a newbie please

How about making a video and putting the images to music?

Here’s one I prepared earlier:

You would want to do it a bit differently for your images but the basic concept is not hard. Just take care that music a) suits the images and b) is cleared for this use (easy for me seeing I wrote it). Linking to YouTube is easy to do from Fiverr and you can make a special version to upload in your Gig to be your main image (limits are a bit brutal).

🙂

I also need to know.

I also need to know. Is thee any Pros here?

Can you define what you mean by the term “Pro”?

I have been working my craft for 30+ years, worked in a commercial studio, gotten phone calls from record labels, won awards for film & game scores, paid by doctors & professors of law to edit their podcasts…

Is there something else that you need before you are happy to accept advice given?

I’m not a pro ( in the sens that my gig is only 2 months old and I haven’t been on Fiverr for much long), but I’m an artist and I got a few sells. I started getting buyers and messages after getting a BR and my first review. Then after the four orders, for two weeks it was radio silence, so I hired someone on Fiverr to make me a Gig video so I could show more of my art. Also made a Portfolio on one of the site allowed on Fiverr and put the link in my description. After doing that the next day I had a new order.

That’s what I did if that can help, but I’m not really well placed to give advice since…well… I don’t have a lot of order completed.

Share your Experience Sir. We all Would like to hear it. ❤️

Umm, I already did above and @zrene just said exactly the same thing as I did. Make a good visible portfolio. Show what you can (and do) deliver. Not in bullet points that are boring as mud but in a living document.

As for: “Share your Experience Sir”

Do I make scads of cash here at Fiverr? Not at all. I sell high-quality Composing & Mix Engineering and that takes time & skill. These things cost money (and a good singer because a rotten one cannot be saved with any amount of AutoTuning or other trickery). Sadly Fiverr buyers seem to think that 20 hours of specialist work should be $15 (less fees). I get a few scraps but mostly this is not a great place for me.

This is one I did here (vocal mix):

This is the kind of work I really seek to do (spent about 20 hours on that incl video):

I only have one Gig so far, but having multiple gig can surely be a good idea. Not only for exposure, but to offer more diversified services. Like now I’m only attracting buyers who want horror or fantasy art. So I’m limited, but I can do other type of art, so having different gig that represent that, would certainly help me get more buyers.

as for BR just clic on the “More” tab -> “Buyer requests”. Sometimes you may get none, so refresh the page throughout the day. Send offers to those that fits your gig. Write a personalized message to show you have red their request, ask questions if you need to. You can also write conditions to your offer like: “This offer is only valid for X,Y, Z” for safety. Now, for me, I was lucky. The third BR I sent an offer to, got a positive answer. But it can take a lot of time before you get a client, so don’t get discouraged too fast.

This is so helpful, thank you so much!! 😃

I’m trying to diversify my gigs but i’m having some trouble with mentioning and specifying details with art. And yes, I’ll keep an eye out for BR’s.

As a marketer myself I can give some advice to you too on what my clients have found successful who either are outsourcing artists or are artist themselves. 🙂

Create a free blog or a similar site (It’s very easy!) where you can show your art and what you’re capable of! Then as you’re a seller, have links leading to your art gig on Fiverr for anyone who would like to hire you.

Then you only have to think of ways to get people finding your blog! The best way is to make sure it’s keyword rich. Mention as many keywords that describe your service as you can, but don’t make it too spammy.

Then if you can update it regularly, that helps tons. Joining forums and sharing your art where you think art lovers will be, and mentioning that you do custom work as well helps bring people to your gigs. 😃

And don’t forget social sharing buttons! Create social accounts for your art if you don’t have yet, and make them go viral.

Then if you want to take a shortcut, check the traffic category here on Fiverr! But focus on ultra high quality traffic only, and make sure the seller allows targeting specific topics, like arts.

Good luck! 🍀

This is really helpful and practical, I was thinking of linking my art instagram instead because I don’t really know much about blogs.

Thank you though, I will take all of this into account 🙂
