Hello everyone! I joined Fiverr today and I am curious to know about what some of the things I can do to start getting clients soon. I posted my first gig as a portrait retoucher. for the ones that have been here longer, what was your experience like when you started?

Unfortunately, my experience -- back when I was a new Fiverr seller, many years ago -- will be nothing like your experience. So, me sharing what things were like for me isn't going to be of much use to you. Your experience will be different and unique from every other seller on Fiverr. If you want to be a great seller, understand your target customers, know their needs, offer services that solve their needs, and connect to those target customers and convince them to hire you. Have an eye-catching gig, and be honest and forthcoming with those who choose to hire you.

Hi alegu,

Here are some tips put together by other sellers.

  1. Do not stay online, 24/7. It would be best if you had your sleep to be productive.
  2. Do not post your gigs all over social media. It is SPAM, and besides, your friends and relatives are not your target buyers.
  3. Do not offer unlimited revisions. Buyers can keep asking for revisions over and over, and you’ll have no choice but to do them.
  4. Use Buyer Requests ONLY if you can do a great job fulfilling the buyer’s requirements.
  5. When making offers on Buyer Requests do not use copied and pasted offers. Each Buyer Request is unique and needs a different answer.
  6. Make sure your profile is perfect. Spell everything correctly and use proper English grammar.
  7. Make sure your gig images are different from any other seller, and make sure they are eye-catching.
  8. Never copy another seller’s gig mages or wording.
  9. Do not do homework for students. This will cause you to lose your gig and maybe even your account.
  10. Be patient.
  11. Offer fair pricing for your products.
  12. Offer quality products.
  13. Always be kind to Buyers (even the ones that tick you off).
  14. Seek to improve your product quality over time.
  15. Pay attention to what your Seller competitors are doing and learn from them (asking this question is a step in that direction).
  16. Be honest.
  17. Expect failures, disappointments, and cancellations but also expect successful events as well.

Thank you! this is very helpful. I've seen so many comments about staying online 24/7 and I was so confused.
