  1. There is so much emphasis on being a TRS - the coveted title (just like Pro), but it’s only a level - a little bread nugget or carrot that Fiverr likes to hang in front of you. It’s just a level people! How do I know this? When I lost my TRS level back in August (because I wasn’t deemed worthy enough anymore), I didn’t care. I still do not care. In fact, I care less now more than ever! I don’t even miss the seven-day clearance anymore. I just put forth my best effort, and in the last two months, I managed to surpass my own expectations. The only things I focus on are my clients and their needs. If their needs and mine mesh, wonderful. If not, then I let them know I appreciate their business, and we move on. I’ve been so busy the last two to three months, I’ve had no need to run any more ad campaigns. And, this is fine too! It’s great to be busy - between the school job and Fiverr, I am doing quite well. Here’s what you need to understand. A level is only what you make it. There is so much emphasis on it that we lose sight of what’s so dang important. What is important? Doing your best work - allowing your work to speak for you. So what if you’re a Lv 0, 1 or 2? Heck, even as a TRS. It’s how you approach your business that will dictate just how well you end up doing. Don’t think so? Ponder on this for now: I cannot find any of my gigs on Fiverr’s search results. However, between the ad campaigns (which I can dock from my taxes) and my repeat clients, it’s been good. How you come across to clients will either net you repeaters or don’t! It’s not your level that dictates the business; it’s your professionalism and demeanor. If you come across as abrasive and rude (which isn’t hard to do on the Internet, even when you don’t mean to be), then word spreads around that you’re not someone to do business with. If you don’t put forth your best effort, word spreads that your work isn’t quality material. Word of mouth is prevalent in business! And, the same holds true for good business practices. There’s an old saying, “You catch more bees with honey than you do with vinegar.” This is a motto I live by. It’s a motto I use in every aspect of my life. I am not perfect, and people do get under my skin from time to time. However, if you smile sweetly and talk rational, you get better results (the same issue can be applied to Fiverr CS). Levels are just that… levels! They are designed to separate the good from the bad. That highly coveted TRS is nothing more than just another level. If I’m ever deemed worthy of it again, great. If not, then so be it! To be honest, I’m all good either way. Perhaps this is something every seller needs to keep in mind… not just myself!

  2. Well A lot’s of you guys are asking same question over and over. But you can’t get the exact result until you see one of your gig get ranked on first page. My two gig ranked on fiverr first page. That was a great experience for me. Now i am going to tell you the start to end journey to get your gig ranked or recognized. First of all you have to remember that getting ranked on fiverr first page doesn’t mean that you will get a lot of orders than others. Now understand about fiverr search algorithm. I saw most of the people are talking about just gig seo to get ranked on fiverr. But did you forget that fiverr is not a search engine just like google. It’s service selling site. So you have to think it in that way. At the beginning you have to keep doing marketing on outside of fiverr to get your orders. This is the only way to recognize yourself on fiverr. When you able to get some orders than fiverr algorithm will automatically puss your gig to rank. Cause fiverr want’s benefits and we also want benefits. My gig was on 7th page when i search it. Also remember that fiverr serach result is not same for everyone. It’s shows result by interest and browser cookies of the person. But suddenly i got a buyer from outside of fiverr and the order was a really good amount of money. I start keep working on that order but in the middle of that order, i was getting more extra orders everyday. than i start researching this massive hit of my gig. What i found it practical. I get a big order and that increase my conversion rate. Fiverr algorithm than thought that i’m able to get more revenue and they also can get. than they start pussing my gig. in just 3 days i saw my gig on first page. Now i’m going to tell you what you have to think. Gig sell not only come from search. Fiverr have a lot of way to promote your gig. You just have to keep giving the best service as you can. They will promote your gig through email marketing, social media boost, google search and many more places. on that time i also found my gig ranked on google in certain keywords. so the main thing is just keep doing marketing on social media. get some orders and increase your conversion rate. you can see that everyday fiverr search page changing the result. That just because the conversion rate of that short time. for example. let’s think that i have a gig that ranking on 10th page. i did the best seo ever in the world but not getting order. not getting any orders means no revenue for me also not for fiverr. than why fiverr will promote me. But suddenly i got $1k plus order and on that short moment very few people got high budget order on that specific service. than fiverr will filter those person for the revenue and give them rank also puss them on other promoting programs they have. from my overall experience i think this is the only truth behind fiverr algorithm. As i said at first, this is a service selling site not just a search engine. Let me know what you think. if you read the full article.

  4. I have to disagree with you that TRS lends sellers more credibility. I am no more credible than I was before, during and after TRS. I focus on the work - that’s my sense of achievement. When I finish an article or ebook, I am delighted to have given it my best (whether the clients feel that way or not) Sure, seven days’ clearance is nice, but if you’re bringing in regular money… does it really matter? I have made more money in the last three months as a Lv2 than I did as a TRS for five months before losing my TRS. I have only had one buyer mention my loss of TRS - one! And, even he said, I was taking things remarkably well. It’s just a level. It doesn’t change my persona; it doesn’t change my quality; it doesn’t change how I do business.

  5. 1.First you have to put your title different from others not the same like others. Because the same title will not be ranked on first. If you are making a title, you have to focus on keywords like - I will do data entry and copy paste for you. this is a non-keyword type title, the right one is that(i will do data entry, copy paste for you) (It means you have to focus on title but also on (,) this… it makes your title cool and perfect. Give your gig a right tag, that can match to your gig. If you are a beginner, you have to put your gigs’s price lower. then you have to put an attractive image to your gig that will make your gig more professional and attractive. And one thing you have to give your buyers best offers because if you are a new seller you have to focus on your ratings and reviews… not on money. you have to earn reputation first towards your buyers…okay when you gets your first order you have to chat to your buyer first and there, you have to impress the buyer from your great communication because if your communication is good… you will get the order immediately. Important tip.. ~~you have completed your gig and has passed many days but you have not got any order… Don’t worry your friend is here… your have to do one thing… GO to your gig and click edit and here you see (Upgrade SEO) you have to put a suitable title here combine with some keywords…this will help you to rank your gig fast. I hope this tips will help you. If you have any problem we can discuss on it here. We are not a strangers here, we are a family so Be positive and do your work …one day you will get your success. Thanks for reading

  6. When I started, not going to lie, I was super gun ho about doing voice acting. I thought I was going to take the world by storm and just become the biggest thing in the voice acting industry. Then I didn’t. But I didn’t give up. I continued to apply for buyer requests, share myself out there on social media and just kept getting myself out there. Not in like a spammy way but in a, hey I’m here! Don’t forget about me! Kind of way and then I had a guy order from me and really brought him what I knew I could do. So don’t give up, keep honing your skill and make it the absolute best you can and you will get an order if you have a product that is of excellent quality!

  7. Very few buyers care about levels. No buyer has mentioned my level and I have been everything from new seller to TRS. Build up your own credibility with clients, don’t wait for some badge to do it for you.

  9. Hi Everyone Today I am going to share a useful Tips that I frequently use and getting good results. That is, sometimes your clients may not understand something about your order or anything else. It may be tough for you to solve the problem by sending messages or screenshots. In that case, make a small video to show, how the problem can be solved. You can use screen capture software like “FastStone video capture,” “Camtasia” etc. Send the video to your client. I hope your problem will be solved and your client will be pleased. Ex: Recently one of my clients could not save PNG files from the PSDs that I delivered. So I made a small two-minute quick video. She was so pleased that she gave me a Tips 🙂 Take care! Thanks!

  10. 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 experience and info -Don’t make it too long; bullet points are a good idea -Invite them to send you a message if they are interested -Leave a closing signature The main thing is to make sure you stand out from all the other sellers who send offers to the prospective buyer. Best luck guys!

  11. You are definitely in the right mindset. I wish all new users who are obsessed with search results, badges and metrics get to read your post, they can see what a healthier way to work on the platform looks like.

  12. You don’t need to do anything. The buyer may or may not wish to leave a review as that is their prerogative. Suggest you read the Terms of Service at the bottom of the Fiverr main page for the rules as to how Fiverr works. Everything is explained there in great detail.

I’m a voice actress with very little experience right now, but I hope I can use fiverr to meet some great people and improve my skill! It’s very nice to meet you all 🙂

  15. She says while secretly operating a new criminal empire behind the scenes. 😉 I have to say that I have no aspirations to become TRS or Pro at this point. There are several sites I work on where I have to pass tests (no multiple choice garbage) before I can start selling. Then when I start selling, there are no level demotions. I can gain more credibility the more I sell, and acquire new titles like that of ‘Pro’ and ‘Elite Writer.’ However, I never have to worry about losing these as a result of a chance disgruntled buyer or situations outside of my control. This makes for a much healthier work life balance as I can just get on and do my blooming job. By comparison, Fiverr has micromanaged seller levels and ratings into obsolescence. When I do look at the search, I feel dumbstruck when I see rising talent and Fiverr’s choice badges on the gigs of new sellers who often have few if any reviews. Neither does Pro do anything for me but say “VERY EXPENSIVE.” If I was a buyer, I would also feel a little confused about how some Fiverr sellers seem to jump between levels. For example, if I ordered from you @emeraldawnn when you were a TRS, then kept ordering from you after you had been demoted to level 2 and noticed no difference in the quality of your work, I’d feel like Fiverr just uses TRS badges to try and hoodwink people into buying services that are (usually more pricey), but comparable in every way to cheaper services offered by level 2 sellers. The same applies when a level 2 seller is demoted to level 1, etc. In my opinion, demotions for the most part, just erode the credibility of the level system altogether. Great… now you just let the cat out the bag. 😃 None of my clients have said that my quality of work has changed, so there is that! I wrangled in a new buyer in September with a huge project we split into twos - and both times, he (and his colleagues allegedly) have raved about how good the ebook was. I’m delighted and hope he and I work together again.

  16. I have to vehemently disagree that the TRS badge gives more credibility. Perhaps a newbie buyer may think so, but at the end, at least this one we only care about the quality of work that is displayed and ** A very well written & coherent description **

  17. Sorry, OP, I hate to be the breaker of bad news but I heard they closed their email accounts because two Fiverr sellers sent them pics of their dogs all the time and their PAs couldn’t keep up with cleaning their mailbox folders of all the dog hair. Of course, if you don’t believe in rumours and still seriously don’t know what’s wrong with you asking about help with this - you can Google a contact form to contact the NBA without any struggle at all, and surely, if you have a really good reason to know their personal email addresses, the people in charge of the responses to that contact form would pass it on? Good luck.

  18. As a buyer of 300+ gigs and now as a seller with Fiverr PRO-- and I love this community. Greetings from Tel Aviv, where I got the opportunity to spend the day at Fiverr HQ-- super cool place and people. I’ve never been to Israel before. I’m from Los Angeles, California and I was an early Yahoo! employee working on analytics and ads. I teach courses on Fiverr Learn and am here to help you guys get more gigs, get more skills, and however I can help. I’d love to hear what topics you’d like to learn and what challenges you have.

  20. Once you have joined Fiverr, you cannot change your user name, so at this point, unless you want to delete your account and start fresh, I would say it is a moot point. Also, I do not think to have your country name first would matter to clients unless you offer service from a country where certain services are sought. I proofread, and many buyers want proofreaders to be from the US, the UK, Canada, or Australia. What is up with your profile picture? On the main site it is of a lovely young woman and here it is of a guy?

  25. If @emeraldawnn was any more of a voice of reason and sobriety on the forum. she could start her own rehab clinic. I can’t think of anything she has ever said on the forum that would result in any kind of negative Fiverr consequences. I also don’t think sellers need the stress of having to worry about what they post on the forum and how this might affect their gigs. Neither do I really want to entertain the idea of Fiverr wasting time and money on such monitoring.

  26. meeh…I’m not worried about it, but so many sellers are so concerned with their levels that they lose focus on what’s most important. I just thought it was important to share my POV about what I see as an issue. (Coincidence maybe but I just got an order from a new client. He reached out to me first, and that was nice. We’ll see if I can turn him into a repeater.) 😃

  28. Those are both done holistically by Fiverr editors, and it’s very unlikely that you’ll get them. I’m pretty sure all they do is make your gig stand out a little, but I can’t say whether or not if effects sales the way you probably think it does.

  29. Yes I agree with everything you said there BUT being a TRS definitely has its perks. Quicker clearance time is one but the most important I’d say is the elevated level of credibility. To me, that counts. Other than that yeah its a personal milestone and sense of achievement but in some cases that can work as a catalyst to perform even better because of the badge. So the bottom line for me is that being TRS is not going to do wonders but it most definitely helps in certain aspects.

  31. I have spent a long time getting to know NBA stars and Hollywood A-Listers. They have come to rely on me for friendship and as a mentor in some ways. Celebrity life is not all it is made out to be and they miss the feeling of being “a normal person”. They really really want to receive spam emails from desperate people offering absolute nonsense with subject lines like “Amazing opportunity to make big monie$!” It is for this reason that I feel the best thing to do with their email addresses is to give them to someone I don’t know who will sell them for $5.
    3 points
  32. This is a truly rare kind of face palm. You are struggling to find the email addresses of NBA players, because they tend not to want people on Fiverr sending them unsolicited messages. Neither do they want people on Fiverr selling their contact details to people peddling garbage business and investment opportunities. If you need NBA player addresses for your own marketing purposes, just stop. It’s not going to happen. If you want NBA player email addresses to sell to a client cancel the order and get on with your life.

  44. Maybe divide your type of offerings into two categories. Copywriting, as your focus, and other writings. from ‘Following are the types of emails or letters that I offer:’ Into: ‘Following are the types of copywriting emails I offer:’ and ‘The following are other types of letters and e-mail I offer:’ then divide the lists into the two types.

  45. Respectfully, as someone who has a made decent income here without selling my soul or compromising my beliefs, without bowing down to the man or grazing with the flock, I feel I’m probably more likely to be right than you are about what Fiverr is and isn’t. Fiverr does a large amount of promotion and advertising to bring people to the platform. I do my own promotion too but I can safely say that 80% or more of my Fiverr customers have come through Fiverr without me bringing them to the platform. When it comes to choosing Cost of sales vs 20% Fiverr fees, it is far more profitable to me when I just pay the Fiverr fee for jobs I get. There is no contest.

  46. If you have a source of followers and prospects and you consistently bring them on Fiverr, that means that you must need Fiverr to process everything for you. Otherwise why not set up your own website and back end to handle invoices, payment, file transfers, notifications, etc. So paying the 20% fee is the cost of doing business for you. You can set your prices as high as you value your talent, no one said you need to charge pennies. If I were you I’d look into the BYOB program. It let’s you keep 100% of the money you earn, as long as you bring in customers from your podcast or wherever, using a special link.
