How can I optimize my gig to find first order?


Recommended Posts

I can only echo @catsquirrel: as a self-proclaimed person of skill in SEO and SMM, surely you can rub together your abilities to show buyers just how good you are?

You’re basically asking for tips on how to do your job while seeking paying clients. I think you need to do some more studying. If I were considering hiring you and I found this post while doing due diligence on your through Google, you can bet due to Fiverr’s high PR, I’d find this post and…

…I’d continue the search.

So, first point of order, delete this post. Second point of order, go read the mountains of blogs and help available for free. Third point of order, when you feel confident in your skill set, come back.

P.S. never admit you’re a newbie, big up your past success. Again, you want to impress /buyers, not whip out the begging bowl. If you don’t have any, make one. Create a crappy niche site and SEO/SMM it so it’s got a great ranking and whatever else you want to show off. Sounds like too much work? Perhaps, but you’re building a brand you want to last a lifetime. It’s not rocket science–it’s what your skill is. Isn’t it?

You should have started your own topic about this.Wathever, I had my first order in exactly 2 months after I started. I guess I was lucky because I did nothing but wait, and I somehow got it.

A common problem to new members like you is that they don’t get any buyers. Here are a few reasons:

• There are a lot of gigs offering the same services as yours
• There have better advertisement
• You are not active on Fiverr
○ Covid-19 (Corona Virus)

If you want to get some orders faster, here is what I do and I recommend you to do too:

Once your gig goes live, if you don’t get any orders, update your Gig in every 2 weeks until you get an order. Add better, modern-looking images and video if possible. Once you edit a gig, it will disappear from the search for about 24 hours, but you have a chance to get it in front of other gigs once it appears again.

Apply for buyer requests, they may bring someone to you. If you tried and never succeed, here are some tips on how to make your proposals work:

One piece of advice commonly given to new sellers is to send buyers an offer over buyer requests. However, often people ask how to send a good offer. Here are some tips I compiled from others and from my own experience. -Make sure to add a friendly greeting -Offer a special deal to the customer that they wouldn’t get otherwise -Make sure your grammar and spelling is top-notch -DO NOT use the same offer letter for every customer. You want to customize the offers to their needs. -Add relevant…

Here are finally some more of my favorite, (probably the best), tips on the forum I really

There are lots of posts about people wanting to improve their gigs, requesting reviews, tips etc to get them more orders. I want to help out my fellow freelancers - hence this post. I believe I am currently the most successful PRO seller in the articles and blog posts category on Fiverr (between 30 and 40 orders a month, and around $5,000 in revenue), and have spent considerable time and effort optimizing my gigs for sales. I believe these optimization efforts apply to any type of gig, not jus…
I know this is a long post, and it requires a lot of reading. But, if you do read it, act on it, and take advantage of the suggestions, it will help you be successful on Fiverr. There are no easy routes to success on the platform, but the guidance here will put you ahead of most other sellers, and help you turn Fiverr into a viable income stream. The question is, how important is that to you? The Fiverr forum is a great place to ask questions, get advice, and interact with other highly-engaged…

If you still have any questions, instead of asking, you could just type it in the search bar of the forum. There will probably be someone else who asked the same question before you.
