  1. Fiverr will be performing site maintenance on Saturday/Sunday (Sept 17th/18th). The site will be unavailable starting at 5am GMT/UTC. On September 18th, 2022, starting at 5:00 AM UTC, Fiverr will be down for a few short hours so that we can upgrade our systems and improve the site’s efficiency. To avoid running into any issues, be sure to schedule activities and deliveries accordingly. Maintenance start times: UTC - 5am, Sept 18th BST - 6am, Sept 18th EDT - 1am, Sept 18th PDT - 11pm, Sept 17th Will my seller statistics/Gig rankings be affected? They shouldn’t be. We’ll make every effort to undo any negative impact this downtime may have on your on-time delivery stats and response rates, but you can contact Support for assistance should you notice any changes. How will my orders be affected? Good news: they won’t be! We’ll be back up and running shortly so orders and deliveries should continue as usual. That said, we do recommend you deliver any pending orders prior to the downtime, if possible, or request a delivery extension if the downtime will interfere with any of your deadlines. As always, we’re here if you run into any issues.

  2. Hi @arafat_28, what you see in search isn't what a buyer will see in search. Search results are unique and tailored for each buyer. So it isn't worth your time trying to find yourself in search. What you should focus on is making yourself relevant in search and a lot of this is based on your seller performance and how happy you are making your customers. Getting less orders or a negative private review can negatively affect how you're shown in search. So focus on keeping your customers happy and delivering quality work.

  3. Read the TOS. Study the website. Don't be lazy. Seriously. Before you sign up and start looking into how to make your gig (or in the worst case, spamming other sellers to give you work FROM a buyer account), do your research and READ. Ask questions on the forum if you need to. Join discord/fb/whatever groups. Know the site enough that you can navigate it well enough by the time you first sell something. Something I've noticed to be rampant these days is people who not only just don't bother to check the rules (which, OK, many people don't, but on a site where you earn $ might be a bit odd.) but also... don't know ANYTHING about how Fiverr works. Now, of course, there will be growing pains - not everything is simple on here. But if you bother to take that extra five minutes while signing up to BROWSE the site to see the people you might compete with, to see what they are doing well (or..not), or to even just understand the features themselves... Trust me, your chance at earning even five bucks is going to be much higher. Knowing what you're getting yourself into is the number one rule when getting a job... Why should an online job be any different from that? I know that some people struggle with English and use a translator to communicate (which... isn't always very efficient) but even then, there's measures you can take to make sure you get things right. Just this week so far, I had 3 BUYERS trying to get orders from me. Now, I know that this isn't a post about spam, but I've seen similar accounts on here as well - and just in general, people who don't do their homework. So... why not try and get a headstart against them by making sure you're not like that? (warning: this might not be the nicest tone I've used, but being direct is something I'm semi-good at)

  5. Hello, I am Arafat. I am level one seller. I have 2 gigs on data entry. Before 14th Aug, when i search the key word "Wordpress data entry" then one of my gig was shown in page 1 and other one shown in page 2. But on 15 August, Suddenly my both gigs are vanished from the search results. Both gigs. They are not shown in any of that 20 pages. i have no cancellation record. I didn't do any edit. I had some active orders. On 16 also i took an order from buyer brief and delivered. So, after thet i need to talk with support. And I talked 2 or 3 times. In all the times the reply was same. Your gigs are active and searchable. But actually i can't find my gigs in the search result. Now my question is what should I do? Any expert solution will be helpful for me

  7. Hello there I am new in this marketplace and I have notice that the buyer request appears for a very short time and I need at least 3/4 min to write a proposal. After sending the proposal, I saw the request has gone and no idea whether it send properly and will appear to buyer feed or not. What should I do to deal with that?

  8. A couple of weeks back I was talking with @vickieito, and shared my frustration at the Briefs feature on Fiverr. I kept getting "matches" that had nothing to do with the services I provide. I had about decided the thing just didn't work effectively enough to bring in work. She mentioned she had the same issue when she first started using it. What she tried was just to keep receiving matches, and when it wasn't a good fit, make sure to check the response "This is not a service I provide." She said after a while, the AI in the matching process began to learn what she offered, and she began to get more accurate matches. She said she now gets more and more good matches. I began to do the same. I had to be patient, because the "not such a great fit" briefs continued for a while. Today, I got a brief that was a service I provided, and sent off a Custom Offer. I think it's beginning to work. You go, AI!

  9. This post is linked to Tips from a Top Rated Seller - Tip 1 In these new posts I'll give you Tips to improve as Seller, and I will use my experience as Top Rated Seller. Please refer to my Forum profile where you can find my Fiverr link, since I'll use my Fiverr pages as references. Tip 2 - Titles Ok, I give you now this Tip 2, so you can work on it while spending time on your profile. So these next tips are about the GIG Title and Description. Today I'll focus on the title. You want to improve your GIG right? ok, just listen to me 🙂 The title doesn't need to be short or long. It must be right. Means you need to use the right keywords to attract customers for the specific product you are selling. You don't need any tricks for this. Are you selling apples? type that! Let's go deeper. Are you selling yellow apples? type yellow apples. Wanna go deeper? you are selling yellow and red fresh apples. In this phrase there are 6 combinations of two words. I assume the apples are really fresh! I mean I assume you are talented and skilled. If you are not skilled, please forget my tips and first learn the job, then go back here. Let's consider my Best Selling GIG about Orchestral Music: "I will create an orchestral epic gaming intro music, soundtrack, film trailer..." etc etc As you can see, I am creating multiple keywords with this title: as example, orchestral epic, orchestral intro, orchestral music and also intro music, intro soundtrack, or film soundtrack etc can you see how many keywords I'm creating? I tell you the exact number is 45 (two words) combinations. And with three words? 120 combinations in my Best Selling GIG! it's an impressive and powerful result. See you in the next topic, always refer to my Forum profile where you can find my Fiverr link, since I'll use my Fiverr pages as references.

  12. Experiencing the same issues, been having 600 impressions for half a year, 3 days ago they suddenly dropped to 30. Support sadly ain't helping and people here seem to think that it's only natural for a gig with perfect reviews that has been on #1 page (from A LOT of people who has searched for me) to just disappear and entirely die out within a day.

  13. Fiverr has the Buyer Requests set up so that it allows replies from only so many sellers of each level. Because new sellers depend so heavily on Buyer Requests for their first orders, the requests disappear more quickly for them. Sadly, that is usually because there are sellers who merely send the same reply to every Buyer Request. Usually something along the lines of "I can do." Buyers will not hire these sellers. Good for you for creating a unique reply to each BR. To help, I suggest you create a template, and then you only need to add the details that apply to the Buyer Request and can send off a reply more quickly.

  14. The forum is awash with threads from new users who cannot get orders and are seeking advice. The responses offering advice usually range from those who just copy/paste the same few obvious tips, such as "make a nice gig", to SEO tips, and often the dreaded "stay online always" bunk. It strikes me that the common thread between those asking for advice and the ones usually answering it (with the exception of a few experienced sellers who make a tireless attempt to help) is.... poor English skills. Yes. Poor English skills. I am not trying to offend, but if you look at the threads saying that they cannot get sales, and the army of responses, you will see that English is a problem to varying degrees in almost all of them. From the messages that are essentially gibberish to the ones with small tells, such as "please response me" and endless problems with calling people "dear", etc... I am not suggesting that you need perfect grammar, but I am saying that you need to be fluent to the point that the buyers feel comfortabele in your ability to understand in the most common situations. So, while gramatically incorrect, it is perfectly acceptable to say "I never got your response," it falls completely flat when you say, "OK Dear, you never response me." And, there are hundreds of these little tells. So it seems that in a global marketlace, where one can buy services from any one of thousands of sellers, why would someone not gravitate toward a seller with which they can easily communicate? If your competitor has that advantage, you will probably not succeed. I think we often start analyzing their woes and offer the same advice about checking gig images and descriptions, while maybe, out of politeness, we don't tell them that the most likely issue preventing sales is, poor English skills. It may be unfair, but human nature is to favor people who seem to be on the same page, and language is all you have on this platform to sell yourself. So English classes to the point of fluency is an investment that will probably help you make the sales you desire.

  15. Hello, @mjensen415. I have had issues with the Fiverr main platform freezing off and on for about two weeks now on Firefox. Will that issue be fixed? When it freezes I switch to Safari and everything seems to work fine. However, I prefer Firefox.

  16. I feel like some people have already missed the point! To be honest when I joined I did just enough research to be able to run an account OK - which is why I think blaming people for messing up a BIT would make me a hypocrite. But... there's a difference between not knowing what to charge and being gullible and, you know, not realizing that you don't even have a seller account set up. My goal with these posts (which is why I'm trying to make them simple) is to at least get through to a FEW people. Even if they end up as my competition. I know that there's a huge cultural/language barrier looming above us - and I feel like maybe the solution could be to try and lower it (and not only just rage about it... though I rage about it a fair bit as well.) My point is that, I guess... I know how it is to be desperate for money and not know what to do. While working online might not be the best solution, I know that in some situations, it IS the only 'job' some peple can get (I personally had a 'phase' when I was so socially awkward that I couldn't hold down a waitressing job because the boss gave me panic attacks and I ended up being freaked out during the whole shift. Lasted 3 days...) Regardless of circumstances, I think that if people do their research and TRY... they might end up with a bit more luck than others, I guess? (sorry, that was a bit rambly...)

  18. Have you been thinking about raising your gig price, but you’re afraid of losing buyers? Here are some good reasons to up your game with a price increase. Earn more from fewer clients If your Fiverr dashboard is filled with small orders for five bucks, you’re probably doing something wrong. Charging five dollars for anything is madness if you’re a professional. It doesn’t matter what you do. Five bucks aren’t even worth the time it takes to thank the buyer for their order. Besides, having tons of orders means you never have time to give your buyers proper attention. It might sound counterintuitive, but you should strive to get fewer orders. That way, you can deliver your best work every time and charge more for it! One order netting you 50 bucks for an hour of work is better than 5 dollars for 30 minutes. Remember: communicating with and understanding each order, chatting with buyers and responding to their requests is also work. Less drama! My favorite reason to increase your rates. Are you struggling with bad buyers who seem to have lost their manners? Demanding ignoramuses who didn’t read your gig description? Then this is for you: High-paying buyers have a tendency to be easier to work with! Offer five-dollar gigs, and you’ll get the worst buyers Fiverr has to offer. If you’ve ever read Donald Duck, you know who Scrooge McDuck is. And you wouldn’t want to work with him, right?! Buyers who know what they want and have the budget to back it up will usually never purchase the cheapest gigs. They are looking for a great blend of quality and value for money. And since they aren’t paying “pennies” for some unprofessional gig, they are more likely to take their time, research your gig, and have a chat with you before ordering. Adulting is expensive A lot of sellers on Fiverr constantly worry about money. After all, we need food on the table. Raising your prices makes it easier to pay the bills each month (if you’re good at what you do, of course). Less stress benefits your health and clients since nothing can bring you out of the zone like a big pile of unpaid bills. You should also save money as a buffer. Ideally, it would be best to have savings that could last you for a year or more. If you only earn what you need right now, you’re doing it wrong.

  20. Hello everyone, I'm a Freelance worker on Fiverr. And my profession is Graphic design. I just searched Fiverr for any Graphic design-related services I realized a lot of competition there. Anyone can please tell me how can I find low competition services. Please guys tell me a method that I apply and find low competition. Because I can't get any order many days. If you tell me the method then I will learn this Graphic design service and create a new Fiverr GIG. Example: You can't find "Pizza Logo" on Fiverr filters but this service provides some freelancer. Actually, I need this type of secret low competition service. So please anyone who can know How can find low competition services.

  21. Yes. If you delete your account, you are allowed to create a new one. But you can't have more than one active account at any given time. It doesn't matter if it's the same PC, Windows or Network: one account is OK. Keep in mind that if you're suspended from Fiverr, you're not allowed to make a new account.

  22. The Fiverr forum has been key to me finding success as a Fiverr Seller. Disclaimer: These are just my opinions and posts by other sellers as at May 2022 that helped me. Get ready, it's a long post, but answers a lot of questions that I see being asked again, and again, and again. If you can’t be bothered to read this post or others posts on the forum then fine, but don’t complain that you’re not successful, can’t get impressions or can’t get orders. You have to do the hard work!! Credit to the authors and the forum regulars that keep this place in good shape. There are too many to mention, but special shout outs to @frank_d @lloydsolutions @imagination7413 for regularly sharing info and links. I think you should be paid by Fiverr given all the value you add! 😂 Who am I? For those interested my professional background is finance and technology (on the commercial side, not the development side). I mainly offer business/startup consultancy on Fiverr. I joined Fiverr as a Buyer in May 2020 I set up my first gig in October 2020 I took a semi-break from January 2021 to June 2021 (I had a full time job) I went full time freenlancing / Fiverr in July 2021 I made TRS in May 2022 I’m registered as a Fiverr Business Buyer I’m a Fiverr Select Buyer (formerly known as VID) One thing I have learned from meeting hundreds of entrepreneurs is that you don’t need to be the best at what you do to be successful. YOU JUST HAVE TO WORK HARD. If you improve yourself 1% a day or a week, then in a couple of months you will start seeing a massive difference. You need to treat selling on Fiverr as a business. This means market research and offering value that Buyers need. Reading this post and the posts I have linked here is research. It will take you hours to go through everything, but if you can’t be bothered to spend hours on being successful, then maybe you don’t deserve the success. 🤷‍♂️ It doesn't cover EVERYTHING about Fiverr, but it covers a lot. I’ve tried to keep it clean and clear as I know people don’t like reading, hence the bullet points. Firstly, if you do not know the Terms of Service, do not look at the Help Center or do not read the tips the forum gives you you are setting yourself up to FAIL. Read them. There are soooo many tips in the Help center. https://www.Fiverr.com/terms_of_service https://www.Fiverr.com/support/Seller These are the topics / questions I will cover: What are common Fiverr myths and bad advice that should be ignored? What is forum etiquette and how should I behave here to get the most out of it? How do I optimize my gigs, increase my impressions and orders? How do I talk to customers and be professional to make sales? How can I be successful with Buyer Requests? How do I spot a scam? What is the difference between Public and Private Ratings? What is Seller Plus and how do I join? What are the Seller levels and when will I get TRS? What are Buyer levels and what do they mean? What are promoted gigs and why can’t I use them? How do I deal with a cancellation after I completed the gig successfully? How do I say no to difficult customers? My gig was deleted by Fiverr, others weren’t, this is unfair!! Should I do free work? Read the ToS!!! Read the Forum!!! Read the Help Center!!! Hope you're ready, here we go…. 1. What are common Fiverr myths and bad advice that should be ignored? The following statements are NOT true: Staying online 24/7 helps your rank/visibility Being active on the forum helps your rank/visibility Posting on social media helps your rank/visibility Revisions requests hurt your rank/visibility Editing your gig hurts your rank/visibility Again: These statements are NOT true. Do not believe them. These myths were confirmed by Fiverr as not being true. More info here: 2. What is forum etiquette and how should I behave here to get the most out of it? Search the forum: 99.99% of questions have already been asked. Don’t just ask simple questions like ‘how do I get orders?’ Your question has already been asked. Search the forum!! You can only post your gig link in ‘My Fiverr gigs’ & ‘Improve my gig’ categories. Don’t call people bro/sister/lady/dear unless you are already familiar with / know that person. This is a professional space. Just use their username. Do not name and shame other users. If you want to share a screenshot then remove their username. It’s probably best to avoid religion, politics and s3x. Treat it like the workplace. Be kind and treat others how you want to be treated. You're not always going to agree with others here and that's OK. Being offensive is not. 3. How do I optimize my gigs, increase my impressions and orders? Read the forum, research the competition and understand your target customer. Look at successful Sellers in your category selling what you (want to) sell. Think like a Buyer - what does a Buyer want! Read these posts (and the help center!), they say it better than I ever could: 4. How do I talk to customers and be professional to make sales? This is all about asking questions, being respectful and not pushy. The best way to sell is actually not to sell. I know that’s confusing. Ask questions, understand your Buyer needs and you won’t need to push a sale, they will want to buy. Follow the tips / steps in the link below. Don’t use ‘bro’, ‘brother’, ‘sister’ or ‘dear’. Your target market is typically western, and this looks unprofessional. Don't use 'Sir' or 'Madam' unless you're certain of their gender. Even then, I'd suggest using their username or the name they sign their message with. Don’t use ALL CAPITALS. This looks like you're shouting. Don’t use multiple ‘????’ or ‘!!!!!’. This looks like you’re being demanding. The '????' is rude. Just use '?' or '!'. The first link below is how to be better at selling. The second link below is Grammarly, they have a free version / chrome plugin that will help improve your English if you need some help. Communication is key to being successful. https://salesinsightslab.com/how-to-master-art-of-selling-anything/ https://www.grammarly.com/ 5. How can I be successful with Buyer Requests? Buyer Requests are usually Buyers with very low budgets. Most established Sellers ignore this section. It is possible to get orders (I got a couple myself when I started) but the success rate is very, very low. Make your reply targeted (not generic) to their problem / request. Use high quality, well written English. Grammarly can help, see above. Do NOT find the Buyer and message them directly. This is spam and is unprofessional. You don’t need Buyer requests to be successful on Fiverr. If you are selling something Buyers want then Buyers will come to you. More info here: 6. How do I spot a scam? Asking to communicate away from Fiverr. There is no need for this. Asking you to pay for work. Never pay for work! If it seems suspicious it probably is. Trust your instinct / spider sense! More info here: 7. What is the difference between Public and Private Ratings? After accepting an order the Buyer is asked to rate and review the Seller. The Seller is also able to rate and review the Buyer. The Buyer has 10 days to do this. Buyers are asked for a private review that only Fiverr will see. Buyers are asked for a public review that everyone will see. Sellers can respond to the public review. Even if a Seller doesn't leave a review of the Buyerm the Buyer review will still appear on the seller profile. Private ratings (which feed your private Buyer satisfaction score) are much more important because Fiverr knows that Buyers leave 5* ratings when they aren’t truly happy. They impact your positioning on fiverr and visibility to sellers, access to promoted gigs, TRS eligibility and more. You cannot ask a Buyer to change their review. This will get you a warning. You cannot ask a Buyer to review you positively. This will get you a warning. You can ask a Buyer to leave a review, but again, you CANNOT ask for a positive review. There is no need to remind the Buyer to review though, Fiverr reminds them a lot. Spoiler: A bad private review is likely why your impressions/ranking can drop even when you are getting 5* public reviews. More info here: https://www.Fiverr.com/support/articles/360010544097-Feedback-and-ratings 8. What is Seller Plus and how do I join? Seller Plus is invitation only. You can be added/invited to the waiting list. Seller Plus does not give you more impressions / orders. It does give you a Customer Success Manager, enhanced analytics, Buyer insights, coupons, early payouts, access to events that can help build your Fiverr knowledge and a few other things. BUT literally all of this knowledge is already available if you’re willing to look for it. So, search the forum!!!! More info here: https://www.Fiverr.com/support/articles/360017140717-Seller-Plusoverview?segment=Seller 9. What are the Seller levels and when will I get TRS? Seller levels are explained at the link below. TRS is NOT guaranteed. Level 2 Sellers that have met the requirements are handpicked by Fiverr’s editorial team. You can lose your TRS Seller level if your performance / Buyer satisfaction score drops. Even if your reviews are perfect, maybe your private reviews aren’t, maybe your profile/gigs aren’t looking premium enough, maybe there are already enough TRS in your category. Some Sellers wait years to get promoted, and some never get it. You can be hugely successful without being TRS. I know of a seller that did over $300K last year and they are Level 2. More info here: https://www.Fiverr.com/levels 10. What are Buyer levels and what do they mean? Fiverr Business is a service that Fiverr offers to help business Buyers. It is currently free but will become a paid service in the future. Fiverr handpicks Sellers to appear on the Fiverr Business marketplace. Fiverr Select are Buyers that have made a certain amount of purchase / spent a certain amount. Treat all these Buyers the same way - with respect and courtesy. More info here: https://www.Fiverr.com/support/articles/360011920618-Fiverr-Select-Buyer-loyalty-program https://www.Fiverr.com/support/articles/360010396097-Fiverr-Business-overview?segment=business 11. What are promoted gigs and why can’t I use them? Promoted gigs are a way to appear higher in search results. Is it worth it? Depends what price you sell at and how much the CPC is. This is your business and I think you should test new things. There are certain public requirements that you need to hit to get the option to promote. There are certain private requirements that you need to hit to get the option to promote. Remember the private reviews? This can be why you can no longer promote a gig even if you’re only getting 5* public reviews. More info here: https://www.Fiverr.com/support/articles/4405489899153-How-Promoted-Gigs-works-Ad-ranking-explained?segment=Seller 12. How do I deal with a cancellation after I completed the gig successfully? So, you got a 5* review and the Buyer was happy. Then suddenly the gig is canceled and you have had the money that you earned taken from you. Fortunately there is a protection scheme in place. Read the link below and contact CS to (hopefully) resolve this. More info here: https://www.Fiverr.com/support/articles/360010978618-Chargebacks-and-Seller-protection 13. How do I say 'no' to difficult customers or customers with inappropriate budgets? Most Buyers are great. Occasionally you can get one with unrealistic expectations, budget or someone that is just plain rude. It is always best to be respectful and polite, otherwise you may get reported and earn a warning. If they are offensive or inappropriate then block and report them. More info here: 14. My gig was deleted by Fiverr, others weren’t, this is unfair!! No, it (probably) wasn't unfair. Fiverr can’t keep up with all of the gigs that violate the Terms of Service. Some Sellers have had thousands of positive reviews, and then the gig gets deleted. You just got caught. That’s all. It’s not unfair. That’s life. Get over it. Others just haven't been caught yet. Next time, read the ToS, check your gig is allowed and contract CS if you are not sure. If you really think this is unfair / a mistake then contact CS. 15. Should I do free work? No. No, No, No. You will make yourself a target for Buyers that want to take advantage of you. If someone says they want to 'test you' send them a link to your Fiverr portfolio. Remember the phrase 'free has no value'. 16. Read the ToS!!! Read the Forum!!! Read the Help Center!!! Seriously, if you don’t then you are just being lazy. (The truth hurts). 99.9% of lazy people aren’t successful in life. (The truth hurts). They are also likely to be the ones that complain that life is unfair. (The truth hurts). https://www.Fiverr.com/terms_of_service https://www.Fiverr.com/support/Seller If you read all of this then you deserve a medal. 🏅 If you now think about it, take action and implement what all the great posts linked here suggest then then you deserve a medal AND to be successful! 🚀 As mentioned above this post doesn't cover everything, but does cover a lot of common issues / questions. Now it's on you to make the changes you need to be successful. GO DO IT!!!

  24. It depends on which one you prefer. I like Paypal for its simplicity. I can withdraw from Paypal directly to my credit card and have the money in hand 2 minutes after I hit the withdrawal button. Payoneer does this via regular bank transfers; in my experience, it takes longer. Things might have changed since I used Payoneer, but that's how it used to be. There's the Fiverr Revenue Card from Payoneer, but I'm not familiar with how that works. Both are excellent in their way, I'm sure. Paypal has terrible exchange rates, so if you're using it to convert to a different currency (USD to EUR, for instance), you'll pay more for that service with Paypal. Paypal typically charges a margin of 3.5 - 4% for this, while Payoneer is about 2%, from what I can tell. Paypal also charges more for transfers. I think it's worth it for the convenience these days, but what made me switch from Payoneer to Paypal was a bad experience, where 100 bucks suddenly "disappeared" after withdrawing from Fiverr. Fiverr said they sent the money to Payoneer, and Payoneer claimed a technical glitch was at fault. They refused to make me whole, and Fiverr wasn't at fault, so I couldn't ask them to fork up the money. After that, I put my trust in PayPal, and I haven't looked back, even though they are more expensive. This page has a comparison of both services.

  25. Hello there, thanks for reading. The forum can be a confusing place, especially when you're brand new, but we all can contribute to making it less so. I hope that one or more of the following tips will help you a bit. Be precise with your topic title. Something like "Order!!", or "Problem", isn't a good title. Make your title meaningful (What about your order? What kind of problem?) so people looking at the long list of forum topics know right away if they might have an answer or tip for you, or would like to read, or not. Be efficient, but still friendly, polite. Wording requests like demands, "Give me tips." and such, will often result in people not wanting to give you tips, people tend to not like to follow orders and demands in their free, unpaid, time. A bit of "could you, would you, please, thank you" goes a long way. Be precise with your topic content, question or plea, too, be respectful of other people's time. For example, don't ask everyone for "the best tips and tricks", but ask "sellers that are in the (X) category, like me", or "your best tips for dealing with a cancellation", etc. If people don't feel like they have to write a whole book, or are expected to list their whole Fiverr experience of years, they may be more willing to comment. Threads that are centred around more precise topics, also tend to be a more valuable and in-depth read for everyone. And if you ask for help with a problem, provide the information people need to help right in your opening post, so they won't have to waste time to ask for the most crucial details. Provide a screenshot if it makes sense (but blur any sensitive info like buyer/seller names, etc.) It's great if you want to show your appreciation for a good topic or post, but it's better for everyone if you show your appreciation by using the reaction emoji below the posts to express your sentiments, so that the discussion can go on without all the "Thank you" and "Great post" interludes, and we all won't have to click on interesting threads, because there are new posts, only to see that the new comment is just yet another "Thank you.", or "Great post". Reaction emoji are these thingies > ❤️ 🏆 😕, etc. Try to post in the correct forum category. Again, like all the tips above, this serves both yourself and everyone: Yourself, as you're more likely to get relevant replies by others, if you post in the correct category, and everyone, by making the forum easier to navigate, less cluttered, a better experience. Most categories have explanatory texts that tell you what they are for, and, in theory, you should also be able to see it by the posts and their titles, when you click on the category (but that only works when people do post in the correct category and give their topics meaningful titles). Bonus Tip: Sometimes, writing is silver, but reading is gold. Before you post a new topic, take a breath. Ask yourself if it's very likely that you are the first person to ask this question, or have the problem. If not, scroll a bit, or use the search bar, you may be surprised at the treasure trove in your hands. However, everyone likes good, or informative, or nice, or funny posts (well, maybe not everyone, Grumpy Cat probably not, but you get the idea). Keep them coming! 🙂

  26. Thank you, @katakatica! I wish every newbie seller would read this. It would solve so many headaches and unnecessary posts to the forum! Before I sold anything ... I bought. I wanted to know exactly how my buyers would be interacting with the platform. I took screenshots like crazy when I was buying so that I could help my buyers know where to go and which buttons to push. Most of the buyers that I dealt with as a newbie were just as green as I was ... and they looked up to me as an expert. I couldn't use the excuse that I was new. I had to learn the platform quickly. The problem is, many newbie sellers come to the platform thinking that this is much simpler than what it is. They're lured in by the promise of easy money because someone on YouTube told them that all they had to do is sign up, set up a gig, and the money comes in. Fiverr isn't a quick cash site like Inbox Dollars or Swagbucks ... and Fiverr doesn't "give" you buyers, "quick orders, or guarantee you income. Unfortunately, most newbie sellers don't understand this at all. It really doesn't take that much to get that competitive edge - like you said:

  28. I like that you're taking this to the forum, Mark, because It's been an issue of some debate and discussion on the forum lately....But... Cleaning up the mess of stolen gig descriptions, gig thumbnails, templates and logos sold on the platform will be an impossible task, unless you require these thieves to actually invest money into their business. As soon as they have to pay for something, I'm willing to bet that 99% of them run in the other direction before even opening a gig. It's the reason why they steal in the first place: to avoid having to do things properly. Paywall!

  29. Exactly same this happened to me for a specific niche and keywords my two gig was in 1st page before 14 august and after the 14 those gigs are in 10th page, I think fiverr give chance to everyone . So I think you have to be patient and skill up, do gig research and marketing with more importantly try to get job from buyer request and existing buyers.

  30. I have a question? On which base you want to find out who is original and how is stealing? I have seen many old profiles who didn't work much orders then newer profile. Then how?

  31. @hriday_99, As @jonbaas mentioned you've got to do your market research. Yes, graphic design is high competition. The good news is, you don't have to cater to the entire market for graphic design. You only need a handful of good clients to make a living. I noticed that you almost have 30 reviews under your belt and you have repeat customers. That's a great place to start identifying your target customer and creating a niche. I listened to my repeat buyers - what problems they faced and what they wanted - and created 6 gigs to cater to their needs. Although I do data entry (which is also high competition), I mostly do work that's tailored for educators. So if they need to organize data, research information, compile a course, create forms, help with project management or putting together grant proposals, curriculum, or aligning curriculum, then that's the type of work I want to do. Visit the "More" tab from your seller page and click on "Contacts" to see the sources of your top spenders and repeat buyers. Review your inbox ad order communications to see if there's an opportunity to enhance their experience by adding other services or gig extras that meet their needs.

  32. Its a no brainer. What I wonder about is the new rising of AI generated images which is trained based on artworks of many artists. Its not a concern for Fiverr I suppose, but it still arises interesting questions about where intellectual property of art ends and where interpretation begins.

  33. Why did you comment this? Where did in the original post it say anything about staying online? Or are you just posting random comments without even reading a topic?

  34. I always send the process of my drawing comissions to my customers so they can give me feedback before going to the next stage. I've stated in my Q&A that I don't make changes once the sketch has been approved by them (but I'll allow something minor or a slight colour change) so I don't always wait for their reply for the other stages pass the sketch. Anyway, the customer approved of the sketch, I sent the lineart and flat colour and have just finished the shading/final stage (which I haven't sent yet). They've now messaged asking me to make a major change (change the entire face and some other things) even though they approved of the sketch. I do sonic the hedgehog drawings, so it's very easily clear the face in the sketch wasn't what they now want, but they approved it anyway. I'm not sure what to do in this situation. If they asked for a refund because I won't change the face at this stage, should I give them one? (They still haven't responded so I'm unsure what they're going to ask next - but my anxiety is going to worst case scenario lol). I'm very new to selling and comissions, but I just find it kind of difficult as I've spent all day on this and have other comissions waiting.

  37. What are you and YOUR TEAM doing about growing your business? A lot of us weren't fortunate enough to have people around us to help, we had to do it all of ourselves. With this team, are they reading the forums, identifying changes, implementing them and evaluating the results? Or do you want us to give you and your team the magic formula without you breaking a sweat?

  38. Hi, I have been facing one issue for the last three days. Fiverr works very slow after 10 PM IST, and whenever I send any message, the message takes 5-7 minutes to deliver. For example, If I write "hi" and refresh the page, the message disappears, but after 5-7 minutes, It shows as sent. My many clients were also facing similar issues while they were chatting with me & they mentioned the same. I am sure it is not an issue at my end since I have done all the troubleshooting steps, such as switching internet connection, trying incognito mode, changing browser, changing PC, different operating system, using the mobile app, clearing cookies & cache etc.

  40. Words cannot express the sadness we feel for the people of Ukraine. Fiverr has employees in offices around the world, but one of our most beloved and vibrant teams worked in an office in Kyiv. That’s why, to us, this war is not a distant tragedy playing out on cable news and social media: it is a lump in our collective throats and a searing pain in our hearts that doesn’t go away. Fiverr is a family and our brothers and sisters are hurting. We stand in solidarity with Ukraine and all those impacted by this unprovoked attack. We also share in the outrage and frustration expressed by our global community—including many in Russia—but we also know that we are not powerless to help. And this simple truth gives us focus. Before the invasion began, we worked to ensure the safety of our team in Ukraine, including helping them evacuate and relocate if desired. Taking care of our Ukrainian staff remains one of our highest priorities. We’ve also looked for ways, big and small, to support Fiverr’s Ukrainian community. As part of this effort we have: Enabled early payout for Ukrainian sellers, offering them the opportunity to withdraw their earnings immediately by waiving the safety clearance period. Created a dedicated support team to help Ukrainian sellers with issues related to their accounts and work, and to provide anything else they need to navigate the uncertainty of the situation. Ensured Ukrainian sellers will not be demoted or otherwise negatively impacted for issues occurring during this horrendous time. Raised funds for World Central Kitchen, to help feed the nearly 1,000,000 people fleeing Ukraine to neighboring countries Started building a special Fiverr store featuring Ukrainian sellers who are ready and able to work Provided direct financial support to Ukrainian freelancers to help offset the cost of potential lost business. Nobody knows how this war will unfold or when it will end, but please know that we’ll continue to work with urgency and passion to find ways to help our community. As we do, we welcome your ideas, thoughts, and encouragement. Stay safe and strong, Brent Messenger VP, Public Policy & Community Engagement

  41. I suggest you to discuss with your buyer, share them the working system and show them how you made this clear in your gig details. Offer them to rework on it for additional tasks or paid revision (may be you offer them less budget than usual for better business relationship). I hope they can understand. If not then it's up to you. if your gig details clear that you don't provide any revision/no revision once the sketch is approved, you can deny refund request and if needed reach customer support. But again! I appreciate to discuss with buyer in details and make a better business relationship.

  42. Yay! Finally a Buyer Brief buddy! 😊 I was starting to feel lonely in this - everyone else was complaining that Buyer Briefs were junk, while I was getting 3 relevant briefs a day. It did take a while to train the AI to know what I was looking for. It's also important to understand that Buyer Briefs are only set up for one type of service. You can only set one minimum price: I chose to train the AI to only send me Resumes. That means I had to mark all the other services I provide as "This is not a service I provide" (even if I did provide it). I think it took me 2 weeks to train the AI. @danno1950 - how long did it take for you to train the AI? And what type of briefs are you getting?

  43. You have pointed out things correctly. Unfortunately, I do not think it is possible to add that level of security to protect the stolen details over Fiverr. But your skill level will eventually outclass such freelancers. They can always copy your descriptions and thumbnails but they can never stole your talent and skill.

  44. Finally, it's been more than 2 years working with fiverr I got 1000 reviews, I'm very happy to get it, it's a very cool experience for me. Thank you to all the staff and crew from Fiverr as well as all my best Buyers and also my fellow freelancers on fiverr. Hope it gets better!

  45. Market research. Look, see, learn. You are going to have to do your own market research. YOU are a freelancer. Part of being a successful freelancer is being willing to study your own markets, target customers, niches, and competition. We are not going to do this for you. And, no, there are no secrets, just lots and lots of self-research.

  48. I'm locking this post now because nothing helpful is being added. If you like what you read then you can drop a ❤️ (or not, I don't really care 😃). You don't need to write 'thanks' etc. This is true of all forum topics/posts. I just want to see less spam in this place.
