Free Gigs?

I hear this sort of thing a lot, inside and outside of Fiverr. A lot of people think getting that first free job done will help their reputation, but it typically causes more problems than they might expect.

Offering to do your talented work for free devalues your skills and craft. It builds your reputation as a “cheap” or “free” talent, and it builds a public opinion that your craft and time should be valued less than other kinds of jobs.

It’s best to charge what you think is a reasonable amount for the work you provide at your skill level, and improve upon your craft and develop better ways to build your reputation based on your talent and skill, rather than offering free work.

Hope that helps at all.

Well it does not work that way, they will have to buy your gig to give you feed back. you can refund them out side of fiverr but that would complicate things and i think it is against fiverr Terms…
the best thing you can do is to bring something very new to the table, your preservation of the gig should be unique enough to grab the attention of fiverr staff, they will place your gig in the recommended section, that way you will get rolling. do a video in a unique style. best of luck
