Other people's experiences will not be the same as your own. Focus less on what everyone else does, and more on what YOU can do to interact with sellers on this site. Every seller is different, therefore, every interaction will be different. You do you, and let everyone else be who they are, and interact as they interact.

You knowing how everyone else acts on this site, will not make YOU a better buyer, or seller.

As a buyer, I can share some tips on what I look for in new sellers. I like to order from new sellers to give them a chance, and to solidify their Fiverr profile with a review and a preview of the work.

This is my opinion, so it doesn't represent everyone because we're all different. 

- Have good profile picture of yourself, a drawing of you or your brand. It has to catch the buyers' attention. Buyers like to work with people. Do not impersonate someone else.

- Have a gig that is in demand. You're free to choose any gig you want, but there need to be demands in order to get sales. 

- Feature your best works and sample of your standard work on your gig page so we get a general idea of your work quality and to stand out. Show the comparison between different package options to help buyer decide. 

- Have a gig video, this will usually draw attention

- Never plagiarized or steal other existing work, it is dishonest and lazy. Buyers can see through lies. 

- No grammatical mistake or spelling mistake on the gig page. Mistakes may be unavoidable, but correct them as soon as you spot them. Have someone else proofread it. Written mistakes for writing gigs such as copywrite is a death sentence.

- Answer to new messages quickly. The quicker the better or at least within 8 hours. We understand there are different time zones and people can be busy too. 

- Be enthusiastic, polite and professional. Write clearly and if you're not fluent in English, let the buyers know so you could find a middle ground to communicate effectively.  Build a rapport to earn their trust and make their experience pleasant. Talk to them like people, don't be robotic. Actively listen.

- Focus on helping the buyers to get the product they want than worry about money. If the buyer is reasonable and appreciate your hard work, they may tip you to make up for you work quality and/or become repeat buyers. 

- Price accordingly. When you don't have a portfolio or a gallery to show you past work, you may have to start at 5$, but if your gig require a lot of work or if you offer good high quality work, don't be scared to set slightly higher prices like 15$. Buyers who prioritize value will notice your page.

- Have a FAQ section on your gigs, because not only it lowers chances of repetitive questions, it makes it more organized and show the seller putting a lot of thought into it.

- When sending buyer request response, NEVER COPY/PASTE THE SAME TEMPLATE, because buyers will ignore at least 80% of the time. Write a response that show you took the time to read the request and let buyer know you can offer what they're looking for. 10% of being noticed is better than 0%, and the buyer might buy another gig from you if they're interested in your gig page.

- Set realistic deadline and avoid 24h duration unless it's a quick gig that is achievable within that time, like voice work. Not completing the gig within the deadline will negatively affect your seller rating and could net you a bad review. 24h deadline also negatively affect your gig because your work might either look like you stole an existing work or just look sloppy.

- Do not leave buyers in the dark, it's better to keep in touch with them every few days with updates. If you need clarifications, it's better to ask than making the wrong decision. Do not stay silent and wait until the last day to message the buyer with the delivery, because it might be too late or take too long to fix mistakes. Only reply very late with the delivery if it's mutually consented or if you're so busy that it's unavoidable.

- Being present on the forum and conducting yourself in a professional manner also draw attention to your Fiverr gig page. Spamming and acting obnoxious turn away potential buyers.

- Finally, be patient, there are slow times for everyone and sale frequency always change. Always treat your buyers well to increase your odds for returning buyers to help you get more work and income.
