Gig Video related queries

Hi. I am new to Fiverr. I saw the recommendation to put a video in my gig. So, I have created a video, but it has a watermark for using a free graphics tool. I did add the text "Fiverr" and " my Fiverr seller user name" to it. But is there any rule that I can not? Can anyone correct me about what I should do? 
Can I put a video with a watermark of the tool I used to make it? The video has only some animated features and nothing else.

I am a new seller with no reviews on Fiverr but I have enough work experience in my area of expertise and I have a portfolio website that showcases my previous works. But it has a piece of contact information. Can I attach the link ( my portfolio website) to my gigs or my seller profile?


Recently I have had enough clicks on my gigs but no message in the chatbox. I assume clients are failing to see I am qualified in my area of service. I have attached screenshots and PDF files of my recent project to my gigs but showcasing a website has more impact.

I have read the Fiverr rules and regulations. It says no contact info allowed.
So can anyone help me to solve the dilemma?


Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.

I ran your gig description through an AI detector tool, mainly because my internal detector (my brain) felt that it was AI. If I picked up on that, there's a chance others might too.

So, a friendly suggestion: maybe try giving it a personal touch by writing it yourself. If a gig description comes off as generic and lazy, people might think the same about the service behind it, and that's not the impression you want to give off when buyers read your description. 

I hope this helps 🙂 

 I am a content writer. Is there any chance you would review my gigs and share a few tips too :')

According to scans, both your profile and gig descriptions appear to be AI-generated: 100% for your profile and 60% for your gig descriptions (at least for the one I checked).

I wouldn't want to see this if I were ordering content, and I'm sure many other buyers feel the same way.

I personally don't endorse using AI for writing, especially not if you call yourself a content writer. Using AI can be acceptable for advice, brainstorming, or research, but as a copywriter, I take pride in not having AI do my work for me.

I'm not saying that the work you deliver would be detected as AI, because I wouldn't know.

What I will say is that anyone can use GPT to produce mediocre, uninspiring content, then process it through another AI to "humanize" it so detectors won't go off. But it won't be high-quality content, just lots of fancy words stringed together in boring superlatives.

Becoming a professional copywriter requires years of experience and genuine skill. Prompting an AI takes 30 minutes on Youtube.

Relying on AI to do your work can create an impression of laziness and lack of skill, and it's irrelevant how skilled you are if you're not conveying that effectively.

If you saw this ID https://www.fiverr.com/users/nezuko_writes/seller_dashboard  

 

The description I wrote on my profile is fully written by me.

 

The description starts with a small intro about my personality (My name is Nezuko, a quick learner and an opportunity grabber. I find solace in experimenting with different types of writing tasks such as newsletters, articles, blogs, and social me).

Next, I highlighted my service (As an SEO specialist, I will craft engaging and creative articles on any topic you desire with the best SEO practices!) 

and Finally a good reason why a client should hire me in an online platform where trust assurance is a big issue (Additionally, I offer premium reports to ensure the authenticity and readability of my written content)


Now for the Gig Description, there's only 12,000 characters for me to describe my service. If I start showcasing my writing skill, will I have sufficient space to describe my business?

In 'Online Freelancing Essentials: Be a Successful Fiverr Seller,' the video advices us to talk about our service rather than showcase our writing in the gig descriptions.

I do accept the fact that I didn't write much. I just added bullet points. That's probably my fault. I thought when customers buy gigs, all they want to see are the services and advantages they are getting - a whole package. For reviewing my writing skill, the portfolio section is open. They can also ask for samples in the chatbox. 

The video course also advised to answer as many questions as a client would ask about your service, and that's what I did, showcased the services I offer in short and added 4-5 FAQs.

Since the evolution of OpenAI, I've noticed that whenever somebody sees a writer, they naturally assume that the writer copy-pastes everything from ChatGPT.  And the ones who are charging cheaply are just directly accused ( also accused by senior writers). Well, you have been at Fiverr since 2016 and I am a newbie, I probably don't know the rules. 

BUT! I WASN'T LOOKING FOR WRITING ADVICE or WHY I SHOULD NOT USE CHATGPT. 

Anyway, Thanks for the feedbacks. I appreciate it.

Grammarly is AI too, you know. I'm not claiming everything is AI-generated, just saying it made my scanner light up red. If you claim you wrote it yourself, I'll believe you (and honestly, I don't care and have no need to point fingers here) but in my experience Grammarly can cause more problems than it solves if you're not already quite fluent. 

I'm just sharing this to help you understand how potential buyers might interpret it. If a buyer is searching for a copywriter, they're likely to check for this, so it's important to be aware of it to avoid missing out on business.  It's simply business advice.

Regarding your strategy, I suggest mixing it up a bit. Focus more on the buyer and less on yourself.

Show them that you understand their needs, desires, and requirements. Make it about them, not you.

When it comes to demonstrating your writing skills, remember that a skilled copywriter can convey a lot in a few words. The description of your business (and the introduction) should be enough to engage the buyer immediately.

I'm not suggesting you should include your previous work in your gig description. I'm just saying that if a buyer reads your description and immediately thinks, "This person understands what I need and has convinced me in just a few seconds," you've succeeded.

Highlighting benefits is good, but you might want to emphasize the results they'll achieve if they choose you, instead of just the technical details.

If you think about it, when you make a purchase, is it because of the technical specifications, or because the product feels right and because you know it will bring you certain benefits?

You buy a fridge because it will keep your food cold, not because it has the newest "Super Ultra Deluxe 2000 Electrical Brushless Motor LUX Edition".

Or perhaps because it will make it easier to organize your food. Or because that Ultra Deluxe thingy will lower your electricity bill. You want to tell the buyer about those advantages and results, instead of the technical aspects of the product/service. 

The approach is, of course, up to you.

I apologize if I offered unwanted writing advice. It was all about trying to help you improve your descriptions. If I got writing advice from a Pro verified journalist, editor-in-chief and copywriter with years of experience and multiple high-end clients under his belt when I was new at this, I'd gladly take it to heart though. 

Also, I'm not saying you used GPT, just that my scans indicated it. And if it's detected when I scan, it might be detected when a buyer does too. That's not ideal if you're marketing humanly written content.

My intention was not to accuse but to advise.

Regarding the accusations about copywriters using AI, it's true, but that's because the platform is now full of "writers" claiming expertise while mass-producing AI-generated content as their own. Fiverr doesn't seem to care or take issue with it. It's not good for the buyers, and certainly not for the genuinely talented writers here. I'm not suggesting you're among them; but that's the backdrop to these widespread accusations.

P.S. Great job taking courses and learning how Fiverr works! It's a smart move that more sellers should consider.
