My little story and search of advice


Recommended Posts

Hello! 🙂 My name is Maya, I'm from Belarus 🙂 I worked successfully for Upwork for a long time, but this platform removed all Belarusians recently, so now I have to start from scratch here.

Can you look at my gigs and give some advice?.. By the way, I've been on the site for 5 days now, and I only have 35-37 views. I think it's very, very small. Or was it the same for you at first? After how many views/time did you get your first orders?

Hi @salmanarif1 & @mayamatveenko I see that you are both new sellers and are trying to get your first order. Welcome to Fiverr and the forum!

It takes time to get that first order. For some sellers it takes weeks, others take months to get that first sale.

You can get started by browsing the Help Center and taking the FREE Online Freelancing Essentials course on Fiverr Learn:

https://learn.fiverr.com/courses/online-freelancing-essentials-be-a-successful-fiverr-seller

The forum is also a great place to learn from other sellers who are successful on Fiverr. You can read this post by a top-rated and pro seller:

https://community.fiverr.com/forums/topic/282146-how-to-be-successful-on-fiverr-common-questions-answered-and-a-collection-of-great-posts-that-helped-me-achieve-trs/

Here are the different ways to get orders:

To improve your gigs, you can do the following:

@salmanarif1 -

  •  In your profile bio - Change "My ultimate goal is to provide beyond your expectations" to "I strive to exceed your expectations." (this sounds more natural). It would also be good to add a call-to-action at the end (such as to contact you for questions or to check out your packages).
  • Gig images - Keep the text simple - use 3-5 words that describe your service.
  • Gig videos - I see you only have 2 videos, but you can put up 5 more for the rest of your gigs. Since you do designs, this would be a great way to highlight your skills and portfolio. Gig videos are a great way to increase buyer engagement.
  • Gig descriptions - these seem a little generic. You are in a highly competitive category and should call out your Unique Selling Points (USPs) to stand out from the crowd.

@mayamatveenko -

I wish you both luck in growing your Fiverr business and I look forward to chatting with you on the forum!

(note: I am limited to only 5 posts a day, so don't worry if I don't respond right away. Just include my name with the "@" symbol in front of it and I'll get to your questions as soon as I can 😊)

Thanks a lot!! I also wanted to ask about the @lloydsolutionsanswer. What did he mean? He've written that my gig is breaking Fiverr guidelines and is likely to be removed at any time. Why?.. And one more question - as I can see, I can add only 1 video for now. But I see you wrote about 5. Does this amount increase with the level, or did I just not find some function?

@lloydsolutions is a "she" not a "he." Did you read the Help Center link that @lloydsolutions gave you?

Also, you just asked this same question again in your original post. Asking the same questions in different parts of the forum can be seen as spam. I'll answer your question over there:

https://community.fiverr.com/forums/topic/286367-my-little-story-and-search-of-advice/#comment-1809614

As for videos - I was referring to the 1 video you can upload per gig. The OP (original poster) had 7 gigs, but only 2 had video. So 5 more videos could be made.

My gig breaking Fiverr guidelines? In a what way?

"In what ways?" (plural)

@mayamatveenko, did you read the link that @lloydsolutions provided you? I suggest you read it very carefully. I would also read Fiverr's ToS very carefully if I were you:

https://www.fiverr.com/terms_of_service

For starters, you give out your full email and phone number (in a gig image), and ask buyers in your gig description to email you. Also, both gigs have unapproved URLs that allow buyers to contact you and move business off of Fiverr's main platform.

Please read both links that you have been provided with and make appropriate changes to your gig. You risk getting your account shut down by not following Fiverr ToS.

Oh, I see! Thanks a lot, I'll delete it
