Asking for suggestions to improve my Gig.

  1. "I provide 100% customer support and unlimited revisions until you get satisfied with my work". I would remove this entirely from your page. 100% customer support should be a given, customers wouldn't want anything less than 100%. Secondly I highly recommend not including unlimited revisions. You are just asking for trouble from buyers who may abuse it. I don't think I have ever done a project that needed more than 3 revisions.
  2. Another thing I would recommend is that because your gig is focused on Wordpress you can take the Fiverr test on Wordpress to demonstrate on your profile that you are proficient on the topic. I found the test to be relatively easy so long as you have basic experience with WP.
  3. Avoid promising 24/7 contact or a response in 30 minutes. This isn't possible for a single person. Unless you are a robot you need sleep. Always under promise and then you can over-deliver. If it takes you 1 hour to respond customers may be annoyed because you promised an unrealistic 30 minutes response time.
  4. Finally and most importantly be honest. Your profile says you are a "professional WordPress website designer" who has completed over 150 projects for clients around the world. Where are these? Show some examples! If this is true then you will be able to show some incredible work you have done. But all I see are some template designs that are not yours. You didn't even edit them to show your own editing skills. I'm pretty sure the BBQ restaurant example is a starter site from the Astra WP Theme. If you haven't completed any projects or can't share them on your gig, then create some example sites as portfolio examples. How can I trust you to create a website for me when I can't see any work that you have actually created.

In the gig description:
It has a URL that isn't in the list of approved URLs.

Maybe take out "24/7 customer support" as it doesn't sound realistic for 1 person.
 
In the profile:
In the skills section:
"wordperss" could be "wordpress"

Thanks for the information.

First of all Thank you for your suggestions.

secondly, you told me that all the works are template designs even you are pretty sure about it. I feel disrespected by your words. after complete a design I took a jpg picture and upload some of this on my profile and portfolio and on my portfolio there are some designs that I made with dummy pictures and contents, how can I prove that these are my designs... Even all the web designers who have portfolios they uploaded jpg or png pictures, those also look like template designs but they are not. Some of your words really demotivated me and disrespected. As a new seller on this market please encourage me. Over all thank you for your suggestions 

Best Regards.

Yeah I just double checked to be sure that I wasn't being unfair or falsely accusing you. But, I was correct. Just reverse image searching the gig images brings up not only the original start site templates but funnily enough it also shows other "web designers" trying to claim it as their own work as well. As you are a new seller I am not trying to disrespect or make you feel down, but encourage you to follow better practices in order to grow and be successful. You won't make it very far by being dishonest or trying to claim that something is yours when it isn't. Using dummy or placeholder images/text is fine for display purposes. I do the same thing and so do most designers I know. But that is completely different to just posting a template and acting as if it is your own design.
