  1. Hi Everyone. I’ve heard your feedback. We are in a constant state of what the purpose of the forum is. Recently, there has been an influx of comments and posts that make it very difficult to have meaningful conversations. This is partially due to the migration to the new platform. The survey everyone took a few months ago showed me some great feedback about what you’d like to use this platform for. Let's get back to that. In the previous forum, we had a system that I’ll call “trust levels”. These allowed users who had hit certain and specific milestones to unlock new features and posting limits. The more quality posts and interactions, the more trust you gained. Over the next day, I will be adding in these systems again. As such, a lot of you will see significant reductions in the amount of comments you can post in a given time frame. These levels will NOT affect your ability to leave reactions or read conversations. So please, think before you comment and make sure that you're adding value to the conversation. Level actions to move up and down include but are not limited to: Reputation level, activity, quality of posts, age of account, flags. Some features that can be unlocked when jumping to a new level: Post amount per day, new areas to have conversations, creation of polls, profile editing I am not going to publish the specifics about the triggers or levels, since there are some actors out there who want to “game” the system. That’s not the point of this forum or system. If you’re an active, productive, helpful member of this community, you will find no issues or changes to your daily interactions here. In addition to these user level changes, you will see some significant changes to the topic and conversation forums. These changes will likely be implemented early next week. As I’ve said in the past, and I will continue to say: Your participation here in the forum DOES NOT affect your Fiverr seller Gigs, sales, or rankings in anyway. I'm going to leave the comments open below, feel free to leave questions or comments here. I’m also available via PM. 
Thank you for reading! -MJ

  2. Alright, I'm gonna share some tips that might help you to increase your rate of getting contacted by buyers from buyer request. As you know we just can send 10 buyer request per day so you have to be careful about the sending limit, Let's jump into detail below. 1. Keep scrolling the buyer request page and read every request's two or three lines to understand if the job is for you. Check how many people already sent buyer request on the it. Check the buyer budget (If he or she mention about fixed budget). 2. Read the request carefully. Try to understand what actually the buyer looking for. Read the full buyer request firstly and understand what the buyer want from you. In one word you have to know what you have to do. Maybe there some communication gap in what the buyer asking for but as it will be related to your work you should understand the buyers mind. Think if you can do the job or not. If you are confident about the job then apply for it. If you think you can't do the job please don't waste your daily buyer request limit. 3. When you got something you can do where less people applied for the the job already and the budget looks solid for you then just go ahead and write your proposal on the request. Make sure what you have to write to convert the buyer into profit. 4. Start the conversion with "Hey, Hi, Hello" do not mention Sir/Madam something like that. Tell them that you have read the request carefully and know what to do also mention you understood the thing they are looking for and you are confident to do it for them. Don't forget to share the idea about how you will do the work. Like how you will start, what tools you will use, what will be better etc. 5. Finish the application with any questions. Ask the buyer more about the plan or if you have any confusion or anything else just make an escape that the buyer must response to you. Lastly, be solid about your budget. Make the buyer understand about why you are going to charge him\her. Hope this tips will help you to write your buyer request more effective. Cheers Jakeya

  4. The forum is full of new sellers desperately wanting success. Someone has told them that you just create a gig and everybody rushes to buy it … Easy money! Of course that is not the case! Selling on Fiverr is just like opening a business. Imagine you are opening a shop in a town. You would see what the competition is doing. Are they offering the same thing as you. Can you offer something different or better. Or maybe a niche that nobody else has thought of. That is called research and you must do this before doing anything. Only offer something for which you have the ability to provide a professional service. Make sure everything in your profile is accurate. Buyers are not stupid and they will see through deception and move on to buy from someone else. Your Fiverr account and your forum account are separate. Posting on the forum will not get you sales. Use the forum to read and learn from experienced forum members and sellers. Everything you need to be successful is on the forum or the Fiverr website. Beware of what you are finding elsewhere! Read, learn, take action! Good luck! 🙂

  6. So you just got started on Fiverr. You want advice on how to rank your gig quickly. You see all the tips from other sellers, like "be online", "just wait and pray", "be active on the forum", and "share on social media". But are you actually checking if the advice you're following comes from people who are already successful? If the advice comes from someone with zero reviews who've been on Fiverr for a month without getting orders, can you even trust their advice to be good? Of course, you can't. If you don't want to risk wasting your time on lousy advice, here's what you need to do: Check if the seller who gave the advice is actually thriving on Fiverr. This usually means that they are a Top Rated, Pro, or even Level 2 seller. Do your research. Don't trust the advice you read blindly. Start thinking for yourself: make a strategy and learn the skills you need to implement it. Why? Because the examples I mentioned at the beginning are all lies, told, recycled, re-told, copy/pasted. And they don't work! Yet you'll see the same "tips" posted over and over again by pretenders who haven't managed to become successful themselves. Why would you trust their advice if the "tips" they give clearly aren't working for them? Here's some real advice you can implement – but they only work if you're good at what you do. If you're misrepresenting your skills, these won't work. Do market research to figure out who your customers are, why they need help, and how you can solve their problems. Create an outstanding gig showcasing why you're the right person to help them, and back it up with actual knowledge. Invest in your business: hire someone professional to design your gig thumbnails (unless you're a designer), hire a writer to help you with your gig description (unless you're a writer), hire analysts to help you gain valuable insight into the market you're entering, and produce a professional gig video explaining about what you do and why the buyer should order from you. Set realistic goals, and don't overpromise. It's better to underpromise and overdeliver. Don't offer unlimited revisions, and don't sell your services for five dollars. It opens the door to bad buyers and challenging experiences. If you've come this far, you're worth more than that. Take courses in customer care to gain more than a basic understanding of how you communicate with your clients. Keep working on improving your skills in whatever niche you belong to. Treat all your buyers like they are VIPs – but only as long as they treat you with respect and courtesy. Answer messages quickly but thoroughly. Be sure to learn as much as you can about a project before accepting it, so you have a clear outline of what your work entails. Be friendly, but not too personal. Avoid terms like "dear", "bro", "mate", and "friend". It's a business, not a social club. Treat it that way. Know that there are no shortcuts to success. Work hard, but smart. Deliver outstanding quality and service to your buyers. It will make your buyers happy, ensuring you get positive reviews and positive hidden feedback. That will, in turn, increase your chances of ranking high and climbing the levels on Fiverr. Make sure to keep your buyers updated during the order. It helps the buyer feel like they are in safe hands. Don't be afraid of asking questions. If you're not 100% sure about something, it's better to ask the buyer than to make a mistake. Deliver on time, every time. Give yourself time to complete orders. If you offer 24 hour delivery time, that means you shouldn't need more than 12 hours to complete the order. If you need more, your delivery time should be set to 2 days. Delivering early and ahead of schedule has the added bonus of impressing your buyer. Praying will (most likely) not affect your gig ranking. Sure, do it if you want to pray, but don't count on it to work. That's not how business is conducted. So - to recap: vetting the people that give you advice is essential. Please don't listen to people who can't even succeed themselves. Listen to the ones that have real success and who can prove it. Pretenders won't make it in the brutal world of freelancing. Don't be one of them: stand out from the crowd by doing something you're good at. There are no shortcuts to success.

  8. Ok, so you're ready to set up a new gig on Fiverr. You want your gig description to sound smart and intelligent! So you put in a couple of buzzwords and some marketing jargon to impress your buyers. But hold on! You might be doing a mistake! First, here's what I mean by marketing jargon and buzzwords: They are pointless fancy-sounding fillers meant to replace real meaning. You think it sounds smart, but you're alianating your buyer when using this top-down style of communication. Here's an example from a Fiverr gig I came across earlier today: "I utilize creativity-driven mindfullness to present upstanding brands by connecting emotional stories with driven clients." It sounds like something taken straight from a bad "about us" page written by some pompous dude in a rental suit. And it's completely meaningless. After reading that sentence, I still don't know what the seller does. I know he's trying to impress me with fancy words, sure, but frankly, I'm just as confused as I was before reading it. He could have just written "I use top-down buzzwords to sound smarter than you. That way, you'll think you need my stuff, and pay me more than it's worth for it". So let this post be a clear narrative for amitious sellers looking to build consumer-driven actions in a game-changing world of global influencers leading the differentiation by challenging your core business strategy. Or in other words: Learn from this if you want to be a successful seller. Buzzwords ain't cool, man. (Ok, so you can use them, SPARINGLY! But if you want to be clear in your business communication, stop talking down to people, because you might end up alienating your buyers instead of attracting them.) "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." - Leonardo DaVinci

  10. Hello! Welcome to the new Fiverr Forum! You’ll find some category changes and new ways to interact with discussion threads. You get to choose how you see content. As the categories have given way to "Forums" you can jump in and interact on a "forum" level. Or you can see all activity (like the old forum) by changing the view at the top of the page. Table: A traditional forum table view Grid: Displaying the forums in a grid Fluid: A simplier dynamic listing topics with a filter box This is still a work in progress and I’d love any and all feedback. We’ve all been working on this for a while and some things we needed to wait to go live before adjusting. If you have feedback, please leave it in “Product Feedback” -> “Forum Feedback” Every user’s stats will be reset, but they will retain their old “Level”. This will be updated in the next few days with a leveling system. This new platform also has new achievement badges which are live now. More on that in the next few days too. Check out the new “Fiverr Questions” - an area where you can ask questions, the community can answer and then vote for the best answer. If you’re checking out specific Fiverr Products (Learn, Affiliates, Elevate) you can find them in the “Fiverr Products” section. Specific Verticals are getting their own discussion groups.

  12. Fiverr is a place where professionals across hundreds of industries come to grow their business. To maintain a respectful, inclusive, and safe environment for everyone, we’ve created a set of standards to serve as a moral compass for behavior in our community. We see the community standards as a “living document” and plan on updating them in an ongoing process. The community standards include five sections: Integrity and Authenticity Intellectual Property Objectionable Content Violence and Criminal Behavior Safety A link to the community standards can be found here: https://www.fiverr.com/community/standards In addition to the community standards above, we’d also like to reinforce some best practices for communication in the forum. And though they may not all be strictly against the rules, posts may be removed/edited and users may have their accounts affected if they push the boundaries too far. When starting a new discussion, please check that you aren’t duplicating an existing discussion thread or creating one that is very similar. These will be removed. Controversy or entertainment is OK, but attacks on other users, staff, Support are not. Keeping posts calm also makes it easier for us to collect feedback – both positive and negative. Violations may result in account bans without warning. Posts may be edited or removed for extreme language or negatively calling buyers/sellers out by username. Post will not be tolerated with extreme adult language, extreme sexual comments or innuendo or similar, so please self-moderate your choice of words or use * as needed. No personal attacks, including Fiverr employees or volunteer community Moderators. Posts with links or images showing the usernames in private messages or elsewhere fall under the same rule unless names are completely blurred or blacked out. The Invision Community forum software has the option for users to send Private Messages. These messages are still subject to the Fiverr Terms of Service and Community Standards. It is against the forum rules to copy/paste content from these private messages or take screen shots of them and post the content on the public forum. If you do not want to engage in private messaging with someone, ask them not to contact you and use the available tools to block their messages. We recommend that you contact other users only if they invite it and realize that the user may report you for spam. There are times that users may have good reason for making contact off-forum, just take extra-special care in doing so. Invision Community has tools that allow for post edits and deletions. Those tools are primarily for correcting typos and adding new info. Edits, including edits no longer displayed publicly, are retained in edit logs at an administrative level. Posts will still be moderated based on the original post, not based on edits. Violations of the Fiverr Terms of Service, forum rules, and Community Standards will still be utilized based on the original post. Editing or deleting a post does not remove or negate the violation. Excessive edits/deletions make posts difficult to read. The tools should be used moderately. You may post links that are relevant to the discussions as long as they are not links to your own website, blog or otherwise violate ToS or these rules. Gig/profile links belong in My Fiverr Gigs. All links and posts should comply with and the Fiverr Community Standards. Unapproved links will cause link or post removal. Links must not be shortened using non-Fiverr shortening sites. Gig/profile links should include thefiverr.com domain. This is a safety/security risk. Readers should not click on shortened links or links that may be questionable. Ads, Self-Promotion, Posts with Requests for Sales/Buyers that are posted may be deleted without warning. Since all users should be aware of the rules on promotion, when moderators lack time to edit/move posts to a correct category the post may instead just be removed. Don’t plagiarize. Don’t copy forum posts or on or off-Fiverr content. Links to other content may be used within a conversational post & abide with the other forum rules and Fiverr Terms of Service. Bumping and cross-posting is not explicitly disallowed but is discouraged and if abused will result in the removal of posts. The forum does not replace or act as a Customer Support portal. If you have technical issues or account concerns the Support Team can help. If your forum access becomes restricted, check your main forum page for any admin notices. If you do not see a notice or if you have further questions, you may also contact Customer Support with any forum issues. This forum was created to provide a home for our Fiverr community. This forum is moderated. Each message posted is owned by and the opinion of the original poster. The forum team of volunteers and staff members reserve the right to remove/move/edit any or all posts at any time and remove or suspend the user if deemed necessary.

  14. Wow, I just looked. Knowing the percentage of repeat buyers was interesting to me. Right now mine is 36%. It would be nice to know how that compares to other sellers on Fiverr.

  15. Make sure your profile picture is as professional as your gig images. I see a lot of profile pics that do not scream professional in a global marketplace. Remember, people judge everything. Literally everything.

  16. Imagine Fiverr is not a website but a huge, colorful open air market in the heart of Dhaka. Everybody can make a table. And millions of people come through the market, so anybody can make money at this market. You don't even have to rent a space, you just have to bring a table and show up. Now because the market is sooo big, some people think that if you can manage to get a spot at the outside edges of the market, where people enter from, that this is the way to get buyers. So they are constantly moving their table around to try and get the outside spots. They go to the meetings and they complain that all the old people have the outside spots and it isn't fair. So imagine a new seller comes to the market and he sets up his table. And because he is brand new, one of the old folks lets him have a spot right next to their table. Their table is very popular so he thinks he will surely get sales today. He sets up his table, just an old crappy card table. And he gets three ugly plastic milk crates and sits it on top of the table. One has moldy mangoes, one has dried figs that look pretty good, and the other one has counterfeit iPhones. They really look like iPhones, solid boxes and everything, but when you turn them on, they're actually 8gb zunes. And the old seller, he has a nice sturdy table, and he spreads out a beautiful table cloth, and he arranges fresh fruit and some lovely hand-embroidered napkins his mother made for him. And all throughout the day people stop by and they buy his fruit, which is pretty cheap, and a few of them buy his napkins. Nobody buys the moldy mangoes for some reason. And the next day the old seller doesn't let the new seller have a spot next to him anymore, because he doesn't like how moldy mangoes smell. The new seller, he gets very angry, and he wants to know why he can't have a good spot again. He heard that fruit was the best thing to sell, and he is 100% sure that people want to buy iphones. And he needs this money, it isn't fair. He stomps through the market and deep in the heart of the market he finds someone who isn't anywhere near the edges of the market, but they have a line around their table that leads all the way to the edges of the market. When he asks that seller how they got such a good line they don't know. So he asks one of the people in line. "Oh, the first time I came here I spent an hour wandering around trying to find this exact booth. I heard they had the best panipuri in New Market. And it's true. It's so good I come here every time." Do you see the problem? Stop worrying about your place in the search engine. Ranking your gig is not going to get you money. Make your gigs beautiful, sell something you are very good at, make yourself unique. Don't think, "how can I jump to first in line?" Think "how can I be so unique that the line comes to me?"

  19. If you're struggling with a low conversion rate (people click but don't buy) you have to look at why. Is your gig description good enough? Do you have a great gig video that tells the buyer exactly why they should pick you and what makes you different from the thousands of other sellers in your category? Do you have a great value proposition? (A value offer is a well-thought-out service that adds to the value of your gig, helping you to beat the competition, because the buyer will see you as the best option). You have to stand out from all the other sellers on the platform; otherwise, you're just another new seller, among thousands of other new sellers trying to compete. Differentiate yourself. That's how you land sales. Here are a few ways to improve the conversion rate of your gig that you can use right now: A/B-testing: precisely what it sounds like. Test which gig title and description work best for you. You can also test different thumbnails and gig videos to see which one converts better. Test one thing at a time; otherwise, you won't know what made the difference. Have a compelling value proposition: Make sure the buyer knows right away why they should buy from you and not someone else. Make it short, sweet, and put it at the top of your gig description and the beginning of your gig video. You only have a couple of seconds to catch the buyers attention. Use them well. Make sure you stand out: for your value proposition to have any real value, it must stand out from your competition. Analyze what successful sellers in your category are doing. Don't copy them, but use them for inspiration to create your own value proposition. Ask yourself "What makes me and what I offer different and better?" Skip the marketing jargon and fancy buzzwords: I wrote about this in a topic yesterday. Click here to read it, and learn why buzzwords can be a turn-off to your buyers. Remember that you're writing for real people, so keep your feet planted firmly on the ground. Address doubts: every buyer has doubts! You need to address them. It could be your price, or maybe they aren't sure if your service will work well for them. Know what those doubts are, and make sure you address them to make the buyer feel safe. Avoid spelling errors, bad grammar and syntax errors: If your English is bad, you'll scare away buyers. Make sure you can communicate clearly. Use tools like Grammarly to improve your grammar, but there's no substitute for actually knowing a language. Make it easy to understand what you're selling: don't dress it up too much. Make it clear from the get-go what's included, and be specific but quick about it. Get rid of distracting elements: if your gig thumbnail, video or description is full of distracting elements, it can be a huge turn-off for your buyer. Avoid filling your description with complicated formatting, emojis, icons and so on. Keep your thumbnails clean and attention-grabbing. The same goes for your gig videos, titles, and communication elsewhere on the platform. I hope this helps if you are struggling with low conversion rates on Fiverr! Following these tips has had a real impact on my own business, and I've tested and implemented each one of them on my way to becoming a successful seller.

  20. My gig is business to business cold calling to generate leads, appointments or sales. I spent awhile putting a profile together that would explain what I do and my experience. I also have a Q&A section. A few things will go along way in your communications with sellers if: You read the gig in its entirety. When I say in its entirety, I mean the packages, the videos (if any), the about them part under their name, the description, and the Q&A part. I promise many of your questions will be answered by doing this one little task. You’ll be saving us both a lot of time. You have the necessary information, charts, ideas, etc. that the gig requires BEFORE you contact the seller. Otherwise, if the seller agrees to work with you and you don’t have the proper materials, how is it going to get done? You do not ask for samples of anything if there are already samples of their work in the gig. If there isn’t a sample of say an email that a seller uses in a campaign, don’t expect them to draft you an email for free. That’s what they get paid for. That’s what reviews are for. You don’t try to haggle with the seller by getting them to do something for less than their least expensive package. For example, if there basic package requires 50 contacts, don’t ask what will you charge for 20? You don’t ask for extra work during the gig without compensating the seller for it. You tell your seller exactly what you want and how you want it being as descriptive as you can be. Don’t just throw stuff at them and expect them to figure it out. Lastly, and I can’t stress this enough, DO NOT try to get the seller to contact you off the platform through personal numbers, emails, etc. This can get me fired, and you banned. Thank you and Fiverr on.

  21. You should follow every top-rated seller who was a new seller once a time. New sellers always try to make you 100% satisfied and take a small amount cause they need to grow their account. But if you do not filter new sellers you will get a bad experience with them. You should check his experience level, his behavior, communication, and previous work. If you can find an expert new seller you will get proper support for your project and spend a little buck. Here are some tips for finding expert new seller- 1. Expert new seller always have good communication skill 2. Seller understand what you need 3. Seller will provide his previous work and showcase his expertise 4. Seller will never focus on budget, he will focus on doing your project You need to always check new expertise either you will experience a bad situation. But never suppose every new seller is a fraud and not an expert. There are lots of people has successfully local business or client but they are want to start on Fiverr, now he can't jump top-rated seller he will start from a new seller.

  23. One of the most common questions posted on the Fiverr Forum I’ve noticed in the past few weeks I have been active on the Forum pages is one that asks something about a drop in Gig impressions and clicks. Here is a shortlist of probable reasons for that. Hopefully, this post will clear up some of the confusion newbies are experiencing. 1 - The Increase Of New Members To Fiverr I have noticed a huge increase in the number of posts that start with the words, “I am new to Fiverr…” There is a great deal of interest in this freelancing platform from all over the world. It seems to attract dozens of new members every hour or two. This will have a negative impact on your Gig impressions and clicks simply due to the math. This is what I mean by that. If (an example I’m making up) you were one of 100 Sellers who provided a Gig on video editing a few months ago and saw a fair deal of impressions and clicks, that made sense. Now, with so many newbies on Fiverr, you may be one in 10,000 Sellers with the same Gig. That has increased your competition by a huge amount and as a result, your impressions and clicks are going to logically drop. 2 - Gig Rotation Fiverr has (apparently) implemented a process that is known on the Forum as Gig Rotation. What this means is that if you have seen your Gig listed on Page 1 for your Gig category/keywords, it probably isn’t there anymore. Fiverr has chosen to “rotate” Gigs to make it fair to all Sellers to get Page 1 exposure. As to what tips and tricks you have to use to activate the rotation process, it’s unknown. That’s a good thing because keeping it unknown ensures that it remains fair for everyone. 3 - Your Gig Looks Tired And Dull It happens. With so much extra competition out there in recent months, you can bet that some of the new Sellers have Gig descriptions that are better than yours. They may even have Gig photos and videos that are better than yours. All this means is that with many new Fiverr members using flashy, attractive visuals, some of the impressions and clicks you are used to getting are going somewhere else. You can try to compete by updating your Gig details on a regular basis (I do this) as that will keep your Gigs looking fresh and new. It also doesn’t hurt to check out what your competitors are doing and try to be better with your presentation. There are other reasons why your impressions and clicks may be dropping from what you are used to seeing, but these are very likely the main reasons. Other Fiverr members will add to this list and hopefully everyone sees enough business in 2021 to keep busy and not worry about stats so much.

  24. Thank you very much for the team's hard work as the community transitioned to this new forum software. I'm loving the fresh look! I like how we can choose what categories we can see the latest updates to by clicking on the boxes. 🥳 -- One question though, is the only way we get to reply to a specific person's comment in the thread is by quoting them?

  25. Hello everybody here some tips for Buyers. 1) Read carefully the description of the gig you want to purchase 2) Don't hire at once if the description says "please contact me first before placing an order" (or anything like that) 3) You might be looking for something that you think is the best but remember the seller should know how to do his work, consider his suggestions too 4) Be patience, never rush or pressure the seller to deliver the project before the time stipulated 5) Respect the limits, if the sellers has their gig paused don't insist (4 buyers almost forced me to work with them even after I said I have already lot of work and can't accept more) 6) Don't ask for free revisions if the order already was marked as completed (happened to me once) 7) In middle of the order don't ask for something different that requested at first

  26. When I saw the green bar at the top of the forum reading "spam update", I felt like I was dreaming. 😄 I'm a new seller on the platform and a relatively new member on the forum. I have not seen, nor used the old forums, so I don't have a great reference point when trying to highlight the issues this forum has. Nevertheless, I have experienced great difficulty in finding meaningful conversation here, mainly because of all the spam that has been going on. I'm really glad to see that we are heard and that spam is going to be tackled. Even in such short period of time being here, I've found truly amazing people that kindly share their wisdom and knowledge with us and keep the meaningful conversation going. It's sad to see their posts immediately get drowned by nonsensical rubbish and people congratulating themselves on earning a forum badge 🙄 I really hope that this new system brings some very much needed peace to the forums and let's us have a human conversation, the way it should be.

  27. Hi, I'm pretty new on Fiverr. Actually, this was my 23rd day and I already completed a project and also have two Orders I'm currently working on! Today on Fiverr Forum, a seller asked me how I did it, and here is my responses. To begin with, I let him know I don't have much secret to that (his request "How to you get first order?") But I let him know I have some personal quick tips for him maybe he can follow them.! 1. I took my time to set up my gig, I have few samples and I ensure to use the best of my work on my gig image! 2. I write a compelling description so that buyers can hire me! I asked him to check my gig on how I structured my description. 3. Furthermore, my pricing was relatively cheap, I wasn't that cheap and wasn't over charging, I check few other sellers in my category and ensure to use the best pricing list. 4. This is my 23rd days on Fiverr, I got my first message and order on the 12th day, meaning I was very patient to get there, Meanwhile I market my gig on my social media, that in turn drives more impression and clicks, which is later converting to Order... I'm yet to have any reviews on my gig, but I'm working hard so that the two Orders I currently have will convert to a positive reviews... I hope some of you will find this little tips helpful, I'll be open to receive more tips to help sellers make their first 10 sales on Fiverr. Thank you if you read this to this point. 💗

  31. For new sellers and all sellers, buyer requests if very important to get the order. A proper buyer request offer gives you an opportunity to get the order

  32. 👏 Very well said! The forum is filled with topics made by new sellers with the traditional question “How to be successful on Fiverr? How to get the first order?” Before asking that, I suggest to research for that topic since there are sooo many existing topics with tips for New Sellers. Also, never believe in Easy Money. Money never comes easily, specially in the beginning. Sadly, many youtubers have made people believe that it is easy to make money on Fiverr and they come here unprepared, create a gig and only waste time. Work hard. Always. Nothing comes easy.

  33. 1. Read the Project Description completely: Every day lots of buyer posts offer to hire some best people to complete their project. But really it is so sad news for all Fiverr buyers because 50% of people don,t ready project details completely and they are sending a premade cover letter all the time. So that’s why a 50% seller-buyer request is rejected by the buyer. So if you want to get an order and make money easily from Fiverr please ready completely project details then start writing your cover letter. 2. Keep your cover letter description clean and simple: Most of the people write ” Hi I am ( Name) and I have 5 years experience about this section then lots of sentence and bla bla bla. Really this is Big mistake for the best cover letter. You should write just a simple and clean cover letter. The best way you should read completely the project details then write about the project topic and must ask some questions. When you asking some questions there is a big chance of to reply from the client. so if you want to write the best buyer request for Fiverr you should write a simple and clean cover letter. 3.Specify your offer: Don,t write too many sentences just specify your work plan and highlights your key point. Please read every sentence very carefully from job post or buyer request then reply step by step. I hope you will get your job and make sure you have some work sample or portfolio because it’s most important to get any job from the client. When you are a new seller that’s time the client wants some work sample and it’s very important for winning any project. If you don,t have any work sample or portfolio you should arrange it or make it before applying for any job. 4.make sure you are available today: After your buyer requests, you should stay online. Because it’s so much important to get any job on Fiverr. For Example, when any client post there request on Fiverr buyer request section that’s the time He/she will get lots of proposal from seller and clients to want to get the best person within his budget. So if the client reply from your request you should reply instantly. if you have missed it you can,t get the job normally. so it’s very important after apply the buyer request you should online a minimum of six hours. 5. Don’t send a copy or same cover letter for all client: Please don,t send the same or anyone copy buyer requests for all job posts. you can be made some samples but you should edit when you apply as per buyer request. You can see some bestseller cover letter samples from online and I will try to write some samples at the end of this article. you should follow my buyer request sample but don,t copy, and paste. 6.Bid with an average price: Lots of sellers send their buyer requests on Fiverr at a low rate. This is a big mistake for sending or write the best buyer request. At first, you should see the Project details after that bid with an average price. Most of the sellers think that if I will apply at a low price maybe the buyer will hire me. This is totally wrong thinking you should set a price average all the time. Fiverr buyer request sample for any category ” Hello sir, I have read your project details and I know you want ( describe client demand). I am sure I can give you the perfect work and I am a full-time freelancer. so you will get the best service and support. I am now online for you so if you want you can message me. Best Regards Your name

  35. 🥇Congratulation on your achievement. Level-1 is one of the most important stage in Fiverr journey. To enjoy this stage you must ensure these points: Amazing gig image and video, specially the primary gig image/video. Killer sales converting gig description. Awesome work quality. Best support to your buyers. Great with repeat business opportunity. Know some facts before you know more about the adventure of the Level-1 stage. TRS is a manual process so not every people get it though they complete the requirements to be nominated for TRS (Top Rated Seller), So I'm skipping TRS part from this post. And also skipping the new seller. This post only for Level1 and level 2 comparison. Number of Level 2 sellers are double than level 1 sellers usually in Fiverr for maximum categories. When anyone search with a specific keyword in fiver, Fiver shows a list of gigs for 20 pages (sometimes 21 pages) for that specific search keyword. Each page contain 48 gig means total 960 gigs for maximum for a specific keywords. So basically ranking is actually are you listed within this 960 (maximum) or not. According to my personal opinion based on research for a year, There is always a competition in ranking and metrics within the level as well. It means competition between sellers within other same level sellers. So when you're in a specific level, your ranking will depends on how good your gig, your work, your reputation than all other sellers from that specific level. There is some quota for each level and also shuffling system to give opportunity to others. So by using that quota if you're one of the best one in active list/waiting list, you will be enlisted within this 960 gigs. It could be from page 1 to page 20 anything. That's the reason you see mixture level sellers in search result. Facts of Level 1 seller stage you should know: (Once you go best with above points) Level 1 is mostly get good at ranking and easier. as I said number of level 1 seller is about half of level 2 seller. And your first competitors are Level 1 sellers and also you are blessed with a good numbers of quota for each specific keywords you're using. So the low competition for ranking than a level 2 seller. Level 2 requirements are far ahead than level 1. $2000, 50 orders and 120 days selling seniority is the main difference than all other level. So you're getting a long way to establish yourself with low competition. With this low competition advantage you can establish your reputation, create great opportunity for repeat business with numerous buyers. This is the actual key to run smoothly when you will be promoted to the most competitive stage level 2. Pricing is not directly related to the level actually. For pricing phenomena, you can read more at You must ensure the Awesome work quality, best support to take the advantage of this stage. Generally I will suggest to be more dedicated in this stage. Good performance as a level 1 seller will be more effective in your level 2 stage. As number of level 2 sellers are higher, so there will be huge competition and also you're in a competition with newly promoted to level 2 seller and already established highly reputed level 2 sellers. So I suggest you to get yourself perfectly ready to face the challenge of Level-2 seller with a great achievement of buyer network, repeat business, work quality, best support within this level 1 ***Again repeating, this all are my personal opinion based on my personal research. I am not an official person and also, I do not guarantee that this is the facts Fiverr follow. Thank you.

  36. Yay, I was so excited to learn more about the updates once I saw this post. I am glad some action was taken as I really enjoy the Forum. I hope the Forum can get back on track soon. I have a question regarding the reported posts. There is still a feeling that any action is being taken as there are people that even after you report a post, the same spam comes back again and again. Any updates on that?

  41. Ok, after reading so many stupid tips I want to share REAL TIPS... consider that each one of us has procedures or a know how for such tasks. Probably no one will really share his procedures. I explain you what I've done to reach 160 reviews and a 5.0 stars stat. Consider that Fiverr lets you promote your Fiverr profile through your homepage or blog. The opposite is not accepted, so I can't include here links to my homepage or blog. Anyway, my blog is a well known blog about music and arts. It has 2747 published posts. It is visited by 30k+ visitors per month, with nearly 100k page views per month. Practically I was famous as blogger even before being a freelancer. Said that I work in the music industry since 20 years, so I built a solid career with skills, experience and talent. Since 5 years I work in the movies industry. Even before I worked on tv shows, documentaries and videogames. So being a freelancer is my last step in my career, a well solid built career which is what I suggest you to achieve before complaining about orders, customers and impressions. What are my todays tips then: 1) build a solid career. 2) promote your Fiverr profile (following Fiverr rules). 3) do not complain (well, maybe a couple of times a month, but no more than that 😄) have a nice day 🙂

  42. This is still the top complaint we see here, so to review. IF you just made a gig. AND you are not getting sales..... Then you are at the following point: You are saying I opened a store, but no one is buying. Now you have to look at what is so compellingly different or better about your gig, so that anyone who sees it, stops shopping and buys from you on the spot. Otherwise your gig is just another kebob cart on a street full of them. Take an honest look at the seller on the first page with TRS, and compare (not steal) to your gig. You may discover things you can do better, or come to the conclusion that all of Fiverr's 200,000 logo makers cannot all be the world's best logo maker. Making a gig is easy. Making one that looks better, offers more value and quality than everyone who got here before you, is not.

  45. The Most Important Thing Which Most of the Sellers Ignores A common mistake done by new sellers is publishing a gig without proper description. Today I will talk about some of the mistakes and will try tell about what should you do. You see, if you want to sell something then you have to describe your product specialty to the customer. You have to make your customer understand that why your product is special in the market. Then he will convinced to buy your product. Exact same theory is applicable for your Fiverr gig. Buyer have to find something special in your gig description then he will convinced. Now, I am telling about some common mistakes the seller does with the gig: Doing copy/paste of someone else's gig description. Not introduce the service properly. This means lack of proper detail about your service. Don't offering special offer which is unique if you compare it with other gigs on your category. Doing grammatical mistakes. Many others are done by the new sellers. But these are some common mistakes. If you want to prepare a professional gig then you must avoid these mistakes. Here are some important things you must include on your gig description if you want to make it professional: Research other sellers gigs and get an idea on your mind. Plan about what you will include on your description and what will you avoid. Then write a rough sketch on a paper and revise it again and again. If you found any mistake make the correction. And while it's final then write the final one on your gig description. Include some special offers which aren't on other's gig description. For example: give 10 days after sales service, give special offer based on your service e.t.c. Try to write your service areas properly. I mean for example: I work as a web uiux designer. I have included my designing tool names, My delivery files details, My portfolio site link e.t.c. Do the same related your service. To avoid grammatical mistakes use Grammarly or similar extentions help. Use several columns to write your descriptions so that it don't look noisy. Hope my writings will help you a little bit. If you follow these words while writing your gig description hope your description will look professional. If you have any question please feel free to ask me on comment section. I will be happy to answer you! Next time I will try to talk about the pricing of the gig for the new sellers. Thanks a lot for your time! Tanim Ahamed UIUX Designer
