  1. That’s amazing. I was looking at https://www.fiverr.com/gwyneth_galvin earlier. She’s great and another supportive individual.
  2. 16 soon.She loves art but she is like a realist and thinks cant make money out of it so she pushes that part aside while I am here buying art supplies and all since I had talent in art and I had to let it go and “Get a real job”. Regrets… a lot of regrets. marinapomorac I have made your image my new primary image. You are totally right, shake things up if they are not working. It cannot have worse results than I have been having. Well here’s hoping to our daughters…And to our future sucess here and elsewhere. Great to ‘meet’ you! :hugs:
  3. Thank you, but this is what I do all the time. I have this thing where I am like motivated and inspired by weird things at strange times and I just have to draw it or draw something. and this is my daughter’s artwork, she likes this style and black white image583×644 128 KBmarinapomorac Thanks. I like that, it’s improved it. . I think that’s great, you are putting it out there and it will come back 5-fold I am sure…I am glad I was tonight’s weird thing to work on 😂 I saw her work and it’s great. is she older then mine?. She has a future, for sure. Clearly in the genes…
  4. WOW marinapomorac. Thank you so much! And on your Sunday night too! I like the third one best. My daughter is a talented artist and I paid her so don’t worry! I am going to look at your Gig and see what your duaghter did because mine is expressing interest in doing hand-made Greetings Cards here on Fiverr… The only thing I wondered about her image (and therefore yours) is whether she could have made my mouth curve upwards, otherwise I look a bit sulky (especially because she made my eyes very dark, whereas in reality they are blue), and I am enthusiastic to work on people’s voice-overs not sulky…But I didnt want to trouble her any more (short attention span, you know how it is…) You can claim a little voiceover from me anytime you want one, in return…
  5. This thing is completely random and mindless. I sometimes find gigs on the first page of the search and the people are not using the site for years, services on hold for over 5 years and their GIG is still in the search results. Samples of logos, I had this idea of microphone in UK flag with or without a cartoon version of your profile in the background as logo/profile image, and for thumbnails, I though of GIG thumbnails, and images, right now for some reason your GIG displayed your video which is OK but it is not your head only your eyes zoomed so it looks kinda strange. You could add something in the video and then select that still image as a thumbnail to be displayed for the video. There is this one VOA with an amazing portfolio. Let me look it up. Here, it is her: https://www.fiverr.com/gwyneth_galvin? Her video is like “business how to one on one”. It’s more like this isn’t it, so a bit more than what you showed but yes, I am sure my visual identity could be better. It’s not a video, it’s an audio clip though… Yes I should maybe look at a cartoon version of me perhaps (is that an Avatar?). My daughter did this, but it doesnt really work and mkes me look too young (but she is only 14!)… image1200×1600 170 KBI would be interested in seeing the portfolio of the guy who got it right in your opinion…Visual stuff is not my strength (clearly!)
  6. That would have been very interesting, marinapomorac, especially because I am not sure what you mean by samples or thumbnails. I have done lots of looking at what others are doing, to try to work things out, but I do feel inspired now, thanks to you and enunciator to try various things to solve this. As might be true in your niche too (I am not sure what it is but will look it up), my jaw often drops at the results of Fiver’s Algorhythms. In my case there are quite a few people with no sales or 1 sale consistently coming above my 16 5-star reviews. And I total understand why Newbies should be given a chance, that’s the right thing to do, but I don’t understand why that higher position is still being given to those people after, say, 4-6 months and still only having 1 sale…
  7. Hey enunciator I thank you for your reply. And it gives me food for thought…Very interesting in fact. I will think more about what you said and I genuinely appreciate the time you took to write. Break a lip (as they say!)…
  8. marinapomorac You are not in the Matrix. I am that person. Desperation will make a man do strange things! I like your ideas…Yes, I think it’s time for doing one change at a time along the lines of what you suggest…Thank you…
  9. Hello fellow Voice Actors/Voice-Overs/Voice Talent, and whatever else you call yourselves 🙂 I have a genuine request here. If you get a moment could you have a look at my Voice-Over Narration/Explainer Gig and tell me what you think of it? The specific reason for asking is that I have been on Fiverr for around 6 months now and done 17 voice-over jobs. 16 of them have earned 5-star reviews (the other one got a little tricky but we resolved it in the end to his satisfaction, but the process took a while by which time the chance to review had gone). But what is blowing my mind is that NO-ONE BUYS from my Gig page. Basically ALL the sales have been through Buyers’ Requests. So I am in this bizarre situation where I am well on my way to Level 1, and appear on page 1 for Voice-over New Sellers adult males who do a British accent, but I still get practically no-one looking at my Gig. Around 40-50 impressions a day and about 1 click a day, which is obviously dreadful. Yet I have the proof that I do an excellent job with all the 5-star reviews. And as I say, I feature in the top 50 Voiceover males in my particular New Seller niche. And also I have tweaked and honed the Gig description etc. I am aware of tags etc. And hopefully I don’t look horrendous! But none of it makes the slightest difference… I don’t understand what I am doing wrong. When you look at the Gig page you’ll see that I have now put in Commercial and Broadcast rights FOR FREE until the end of this year. That wasn’t there before - I have just done that in sheer desperation to try and get some actual sales from the page. It seems to me that there’s something weird going on, and I’d love you to cast some light on it if you can… Should I add more Gigs (some people say that dilutes the message)? Should I not show my face (since it shows I have gray hair), and use an avatar instead? Should I charge more? Should I charge less? if not any of those, then WHAT?? I am tearing my hair out… I’d be grateful for ANY constructive advice. Thank you very much… 🙏 https://www.fiverr.com/share/0E6lXy
  10. imagination7413 Thanks for your feeling, which I share. So far so good! ukbritishvoice
  11. augustusblog It’s SO weird whats happening with me. “600+ impressions per day, and lots of clicks” sounds like heaven. “switch up your gig page to be more attractive, change the title, etc”. I have done ALL of it. I admit I am not promoting outside FIverr because, well, some people won’t take me seriously if I do that in the circles I move in… However I only have one Gig, and you are right, that needs to change. So I will do more Gigs. Although I know VERY successful Sellers on here who think it dilutes focus and only have ONE gig. So that made me pause. Anyhow I am going to try that…Thanks for taking an interest… ukbritishvoice
  12. Hi marinapomorac Thanks for taking an interest. Peoples experiences can certainly vary. I have received a job offer for every 20 Buyers Requests on average. So that seems to be very good. Yet no sales through the Page. VERY low number of clicks like (I am embarassed to say it) 35 in a month. But I don’t think the Gig Page is awful (have a look). Another thing that doesnt make sense is I am on Page 1 in my category of men who do Voice-overs and who have a British accent and are adults/middle-aged and New Sellers. So that’s in the top 45 of 350. Still it does not translate to sales on the Gig page… I should make Level one in a month and then maybe things will automatically change with a different algorythm. I hope so. ukbritishvoice
  13. Hi augustusblog What’s really weird is that I now have 16 5-star reviews out of 17 jobs and STILL NO-ONE BUYS FROM MY PAGE. IT’S ALL BUYERS’ REQUESTS. I simply don’t understand this. I really, really wish someone could cast some light on this. I am only getting about 50 impressions a day, I don’t know if that is terribly low in other peoples experience. It did go up to 200 for a day or two, I have no idea why, then back down. And I have continued to streamline and improve the Gig description. It makes no difference. I am well on the way to being Level 1 WITHOUT ANYONE ACTUALLY BUYING FROM MY PAGE! I am wondering whether to go to Customer resolution centre about the situation because maybe there’s something wrong technically somewhere, or something… ukbritishvoice
  14. Well you seem to be doing very well english_voiceif you are just waiting. That’s not working for me: hence Buyers Requests. You seem to have stopped doing a Voice Gig from what I could see (I looked you up).
  15. Hi humanissocial. I wrote to them " Hi sorry but it’s against Fiverr rules to give your email like that. And that worries me. That might be an innocent mistake but it’s a one word job, and that’s even more worrying, because there would be nothing to stop you receiving different versions of that word from different voice actors to your email and then disappearing without payment. Can you see the problem? I think I have to leave this…"
