  2. These are the tips I made for new sellers on Fiverr based on my 4 years of experience with Fiverr. Instead of technical tips, the tips I share point to the mental conditions that I think every new seller should have. You may disagree with my opinion, but again, this is my first tips so please go easy on me?. 1. If you are a new seller on Fiverr, you should think of every job as an opportunity to learn rather than earn money The first time I sold my services on Fiverr, I accepted all kinds of jobs for $ 5, regardless of the difficulty level. To be honest, it is very small compared to my offline job which pays a lot higher. But as a freelance, I’m still a newbie, I don’t know the range of difficulties of my job, I don’t know how to deal with clients of different traits, I don’t even know how good I am compared to other freelancers who sell similar services. Therefore, when I got the project, I didn’t think how much money I would get but rather the “I’ve been paid to learn” mentality. At first, it was difficult, but it all paid off later. Not only will you get high ratings and the best reviews, but you will also know what the right price is for your service. 2. You are here to help buyers, not to get their money. Sometimes you will get buyers who ask for a few extra things outside the package that you have agreed to. Of course, you can add extra cost options that Fiverr has provided, and if the buyer accepts it would be ideal. But if he doesn’t have the funds for it, and you have time to spare, why not do his request for free? Not only will your buyer be pleased with the surprise, he or she will probably become a returned buyer and you may also get tips. In fact, I have tipped more than 30 projects. I know that not all buyers are good buyers, but even if one in ten of your clients is a good buyer, that is a very good outcome. 3. Communication is the key, keep calm Communication here is not just a matter of how good your English is. But also the choice of words, how to say it, and what you think about the buyer’s project. Sometimes you get buyers who have difficulty expressing their wishes, which causes them to be dissatisfied with the results of your work. And they may give bad ratings, but rather than responding with a defiant tone it would be better if you explain the problem calmly. English is not my first language, so I’m actually still learning how to respond properly to buyers’ messages. 4. Don’t forget to rest and take care of your mental state Working on multiple projects with multiple clients will tire you out physically and mentally. let’s say I just submitted the first job and was working on the second job while the third job came along with a revised request from the first job. If you are new to Fiverr and working alone trust me you will be stressed. Take a step back, sip a coffee and try to be calm, then you can decide whether to ask for an extension of time on the first client, reject the third client or activate vacation mode while working on all three projects. If this happens several times a month, it’s a good idea to take a break for 1 or 2 days after you finish all your projects. Get enough sleep, play games, or whatever you want to stabilize your mental state. Don’t force work when your mental state is not good. 5. Keep learning with new projects Let’s say you get 2 projects at the same time, the first project is the type of work that you have done so far, while the second project is work that you have never done before (but is still in line with the services you provide). My advice is to prioritize projects that you have never worked on. Not all new projects are suitable for you, and you may not necessarily be able to do them well, but by taking on a new job you will know how much potential you are capable of. It could also become a new gig that has the potential to generate income. One thing I do know from new sellers who stop learning, they tend to overvalue their abilities. Put the price too higher but ask why they don’t get any order. Of course, it’s their right, but experienced buyers wouldn’t choose a seller like that. Ok, that’s all from me. Thanks for reading

  4. I am a bit delayed in announcing my level 2 success, and I wanted to share my tips for reaching that level. I received this ranking about 2 weeks ago, but was crammed with exams and didn’t bother to share. 1. I would first like to point out a common misconception: Social Media Advertising. Not useful, never was, unless your gig specifically involves social media. Even if you do get a customer from social media, they will likely be just curious and not actually care to spend money. 2. Start stupidly low and undersell yourself. They call it Fiverr for a reason. Start at $5, and you can build a reputation around people who are unwilling to spend money on more trusted sellers. From there, around maybe 20 reviews, bump it a bit. Good milestones to bump prices (not too high!) are 20 orders, 50 orders, 100 orders, and after that as you please without going too high and driving off competition. 3. Make your icon simple and readable. People always think that an icon that stands out a ton is the best way to go. The secret? Be the one icon that blends perfectly with the website. Literally copy the color code for Fiverr’s green (#1dbf73). Make a simple gig icon showing your profile picture enlarged, a large and readable description in the image icon, and lace it all around with Fiverr green. 4. Never go anywhere near the buyer requests. This is a time waste, and only stingy people looking for absurdly low prices for a ton of work use this section. Don’t even think of clicking it. Save yourself sanity and time. 5. When in doubt, keyword it out. What do you think people will type looking for services related to you? Think of what you should search for, even have friends look for your service and see what they type in. 6. Multiple gigs. Do you have a wide profession? Make gigs that cover that wideness. I have 2 current gigs that are highly selling, the 3rd seldom-seen and forgotten. Both are for music, but different people need different music. Appeal to everyone you can. Lastly, this one is kind of stupid. 7. Be more chill. The most common demographic for Fiverr is young adults. You’re not going to receive orders from businessmen very high up (One of my common buyers literally uses “UwU” and “OwO” in his messages, I know.). You will always get orders from YouTubers, young entrepreneurs, content creators, etc. Don’t be crass or profane, but keep it chilled out. Nobody is going to like you if you use semicolons; semicolons scream sophistication and a stuck-up attitude. Level with the seller, and get a read on how they act and communicate. Mirror that personality, and make it seem like they are talking to themselves, but with talent. 8. Don’t do anything stupid. I don’t know what exactly to say to define that, but if it seems suspicious, don’t do it and consult this forum or TOS. There is always someone who’s been here longer than you that knows better. Always ask someone else if you have a problem. There’s a forum for a reason. Cheers and good luck, The_Mad_Duck Edit: Had wrong color code. Fixed this time.

  16. 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.

  22. Like many of us, I’ve had my moments where the orders are slow and there isn’t much work. Just because you don’t have many orders doesn’t mean it’s time to take a break! First thing you need to do is get your gig out there! Post it on social media, talk about it to people, you can even send it to businesses that may need your services. Anything to get it out there (just be mindful to not spam it, no one likes spam). Then second, don’t give up. It’s really easy to just say well I give up. This is to hard and I don’t want to do it any more. Persistence is key when things are slow. Third is keep your eye on those buyers requests! If you see something on there that you think you can really knock out of the park and fits your skill set, go for it! Apply to it and let them know you’re the best for the job. Keep working hard everyone!

  25. Don’t offer services you can’t do. Otherwise, there’s no hard limit on categories you can offer. As for professionalism, I don’t know of any data that states one way or the other. We can’t know how many potential buyers visit a Seller’s profile, or what Buyers thing of someone who offers a wide variety of unrelated gig services. Some might find it good in that a Seller might be well rounded, while others might see it as a sign of mediocre across all gigs. We can’t know.

  29. I see a lot of advice that encourages the freelance tropes - the idea that we’re all workaholic night owls, perpetually hunched over keyboards, waiting at the beck and call of potential clients. Never log out… Always be agreeable to clients… Give free samples or mock ups… Answer right away… If you needed an experienced professional to give you permission, in plain words, here it is: it’s okay to be a human being. Never give out free work. No samples. No mockups. Period. That’s what your portfolio is for! If they can’t judge the quality and capability of your work from your portfolio, they’re likely going to be a pain anyway. (Editing to add: make sure your portfolio DOES reflect your capability, though - if it’s just an image with some text like “I do X, Y, and Z!” and there are no pictures of your actual work, change that. If a client can’t see your work within a few seconds, statistically you’ve probably already lost them!) Do not offer discounts or give in to buyers begging for one because they’re a “start up.” You were a start up too, and no one paid you more because you were new, right? Don’t give them something they’d never extend to you. No arbitrary discounts, especially for new clients asking “can you just…” or promising future work. Spoiler alert: that future work, if it even manifests, is going to be expected at the lower rate. You wouldn’t let your boss at a conventional job just randomly pay you less per hour because they felt like it, right? So don’t do it here. Do not feel bad about taking days where you don’t schedule work or respond to messages. In conventional jobs, people don’t “swing by the office” to see if they can work on something - they enjoy their days off and use them to get personal things accomplished. Do that. Your sanity will thank you. Some clients are going to be in different time zones. Answer when it’s appropriate for your time zone. Otherwise, you’re setting up a precedent of answering questions at 3am in your time and the client’s going to get testy when that’s not the norm. Value yourself, your time, and your work - a freelancer is no different than any other worker, and we deserve the same dignity and consideration as those “protected” under a conventional job. It may mean we have to be a little more firm about boundaries with clients, but you can do so while remaining polite and businesslike. I reject at least 2 or 3 jobs every day because I know in my heart they’re a poor fit, either price-wise, effort-wise, or expectation-wise. I just steer those clients back to the Fiverr marketplace and explain there’s a ton of talent that would suit their needs better than me, and they’re all ready to work.

  34. Use the forum search tool to look up this thread: Research tips? If it’s something you cannot do (and do well), don’t bother researching it. How to get any orders at all ... and get more once you have a few (YOUR skills are what matter.) Ex: if I told you that ice-skating dancing was popular, it probably wouldn’t do you any good, as you’re not likely to be a figure skater.

  35. :man_facepalming: No one can be awake 24/7. The only reason you can want to do this is to make yourself appear available to potential buyers. You will therefore be fraudulent - making you a bad seller, and someone that I would never want to buy from. In fact I will go further. The very fact that your first thought as a new seller is how to cheat, makes it very unlikely that you will be successful.

  36. I have a customer who has requested a revision a few days back, which is fine. But when I asked some follow up questions to further clarifying what he wanted, he didn’t answer. So I worked a bit on having some incomplete samples which I sent to ask him which he preferred, so that I can work from there and therefore have a higher chance that he is pleased with the next delivery. Still no answer and its been almost 24 hours since then and about day until the delivery. Should I just build on those samples I showed and make a formal delivery and hope that he is pleased? I always strive to get customers exactly what they want which has resulted in only 5 star reviews for me so far, but it’s quite hard to provide this when the customer isn’t communicative as a don’t want to risk an unhappy customer. 1 unhappy customer is worth 10 happy customers, at least (according to the statistics from CRM classes) Anyone have advice? Also, I apologize for having a question possibly similar to someone else but I couldn’t find a recent similar topic

  37. Well for some time i had my impressions really down because my delivery on time was on 0 and my order completion too, what i did was stay always online, send a lot of things on buyer requests, i edited my gig, created other gig. One other thing i did during this time that i don’t know if affected or not, was buy a service from someone on fiverr too, i don’t know because i was buying the service cause i really needed, but well after all this thing my impressions were higher again. So i don’t really know what exactly helped me.

  42. I do agree with some of these - but… I have to disagree on the first two points. We ARE here to work. (even newbies should be) and to earn our keep. Sure, throwing in an extra or two from time to time is fine - I do it sometimes, too, but there’s a limit. Encouraging people to do ‘difficult work’ (or extras) for 5 bucks… I’m not sure that’s quite right. I do see the point in building up a bit of a reputation, but doing everything for very little will backfire in the end. In an ideal world, the ‘I’ve been paid to work’ mentality is great - but people here do expect our work to be of a certain quality even if we are ‘learning’ (and if we do it for 5 bucks.) People on here can spot inexperienced newbies and make them work for hours and hours, only to give nothing in the end. We have to protect ourselves somehow as well! I do agree with the rest of the points. Mental health/rest is incredibly important. If you feel like you are doing too much, take a break (try not to drink too much caffeine… but I can’t quite preach about that, being a fan myself) and LEARN as you go. Just… don’t offer everything for 5 dollars at first. People are going to use you for it…

  44. I think I read somewhere from the forum that when Fiverr selects someone to become a Top Rated Seller, they prefer if the seller primarily focuses on only one or two subcategories, but even if true, the vast majority of sellers won’t ever achieve the qualifications to even become a candidate. I concur with Imagination; offer services only in fields that you can deliver quality professional work. Spreading your offerings to fields that you have no clue about is a recipe for disaster.
