How do i setup the price?


Recommended Posts

Hi sweet people! I’m newbie in Fiverr. How do you guys set your gigs price? I get it, we do need reviews and works to get started here. I was checking the average price of what i do, audio production. I was shocked to see the price starts with $5. TBH, it’s really not worth it. I’m aware of scammers who will buy your music in such price and sell it to others. This kind of scammers existed for long time in music industry, i believe it’s same here.

How do i actually get started? I couldn’t help myself but adjust my offer like what other amazing newbie producers offering. Any thoughts on that?

I see a lot of advice that encourages the freelance tropes - the idea that we’re all workaholic night owls, perpetually hunched over keyboards, waiting at the beck and call of potential clients.

Never log out…

Always be agreeable to clients…

Give free samples or mock ups…

Answer right away…

If you needed an experienced professional to give you permission, in plain words, here it is: it’s okay to be a human being.

Never give out free work. No samples. No mockups. Period. That’s what your po…

 

So many newbies are being taken advantage of here on Fiverr by a small minority of predatory “buyers”. This is my take on how to protect yourself, thereby reducing the chances of a cancellation or negative review.

Hi, I’m new to Fiverr as a pro seller - our company has been working professionally in Music for 30 years and whilst we’re grateful not to be short of work, we thought we’d embrace the 21C and explore the wider network. However, I can’t get over the pricing situation on Fiverr - people offering to sell their mothers for the price of a coffee! I’m really interested to know what other professional composers and arrangers think about the pricing on here and whether there are any ‘real’ clients look…

Here’s what I did…BTW, I write blogs and articles for websites.

I started with a 500-word article at $5.

I did that to get some quick orders and scoop some fast business.

It worked a little too well as I found myself swamped with work.

I should point out that it did take a year before I got my first order but once I did, I was crazy busy.

I eventually raised my rates and added more Gigs.

I currently charge $25 for a 500-word article, which matches my normal non-Fiverr rate.

Every six months or so, I will either increase my rates again or delete Gigs that are not selling and replace them with new Gigs.

I see the marketplace as a constantly evolving place, so I try to evolve as well.

I hope that helps.

I love your answer for this. I did something similar and got so overwhelmed in the beginning. I keep raising my prices until the orders slow down to just a few at a time and that has worked well for me.
