Recommended Posts

Even though the slogan of Fiverr Get Those To-do Tasks Done” is crafted to target buyer side of the community, sellers shouldn't be sleeping on that too. We have our own to-do list in order to emphasize our gig's point of difference and establish uniqueness. It's the way in which our services stand out from our competitors who may have invested less time and effort to craft their own offering and we must take use of that. 
 
Stop treating this platform as your salvation if you haven't had any luck trying to sell your services on other online marketplaces. This is market which, in fact, functions similarly to traditional bazaar where every salesman invests some money and time to make his stall stand out from the crowd, grab the attention and attract some buyers. Everyone has their own tricks up one's sleeve and they're ready to pull it of when needed. Be as it may, both online and physical marketplaces of services and goods functions along the framework of sales funnelyour customer's journey on the way to ordering your services.

Awareness
Gig marketing stage which describes the phase of recognition. Ideally, it may help to present the qualities that distinguish your gig from its competition. You have a set of tools to achieve this. You can step up the game by implementing effective cover image as well as choosing a researched name and tags to make it more SEO-friendly and appear in front of more eyes of possible prospects. In addition, you can gain advantage by using Fiverr promotions function or social media ads to increase your traffic and fight for your opportunity to be noticed.
 
 
Consideration
Metric that shapes customer expectations from a seller. To take use of this process, consider investing some time to craft a valid brand positioning. Why is your service valuable to your customers? Does it serve a specific need in your market? Look for some ways to align your and customer values thus establishing possible connection that can lead to the next stage of sales funnel.
 
 
Action
Every step that you've worked on before, comes down to this stage: whether you get the order notification that shines the light on your seller's panel or not. If it's not there yet, you have no need to be stressed out. All you can do is to come back to the earlier stages of the process to spot some improvable areas which could increase your conversion rate or to drag it out of a plain zero. Your main mission is to stay on top of the mind of potential customers.
 
 
Retention
Sales funnel doesn't end at a conversion but continues past into the loyalty of your customer. Suggest a discount for their next order, overdeliver providing more than advertised, initiate some kind of an additional contact after the order is marked as completed and ask if everything's fine and make sure that no further help is needed. It'll build a solid base for getting 5 star reviews and will function as a traffic accelerator that ignites the first process of your sales funnel which, as you know, is brand awareness. By now, your gig is getting some positive feedback thus appearing in front of more buyers who end up visiting the platform.
 
 
Advocacy
Whole process, covering every step including brand awareness, consideration, action and retention, adds up into the final phase of the funnel which is advocacy. Was your customer so satisfied that they not only order your services, but refer more business to you from family, friends and turn into an indirect promoter of your gig? If so, you're on your way of becoming a true rockstar! :classic_cool:

 I think the title of your post is misleading - "5 Steps to Become a Top Rated Seller on Fiverr".

Some may take your advice and think that is all that needs to be done to get a TRS badge. The TRS badge is chosen by Fiverr staff, so, it can be hit or miss. Just depends on who is doing the choosing.

Are you a TRS here?

Unfortunately, reaching out and messaging a buyer without them prompting you to first can get your account a warning if the buyer marks your message as spam. Yes, I know in the real world and probably other freelancing sites it is encouraged or OK to reach out to clients and send messages to keep a connection. Here, it is just seen as spam.

The title is meant to encourage sellers and it's pretty obvious that these steps are the way to increase your chances of achieving the top and not some form of a guarantee that it will happen. Who would ever think that there is an automated system that awards you a TRS badge after completing a certain sequence of steps when these indicators are not even technically measurable?

Reaching out to a buyer right after the order isn't against the rules as long as you're not seeking to gain any advantage or to upsell your services. For example, if client gets a huge package of different files, there's nothing wrong to make sure that he/she has managed find everything that had to be included in the delivery.

Thank you for the negativity, it always makes me smile!

You are welcome. And thank you for yours as well.

Your post title is still misleading though.

There is also a "heart" or "thanks" button here too so you do not have to respond to each person who "thanks" you for this valuable post separately - you can just click on the emoticon thingee. Makes the forum less "cluttery".
