  1. Stop playing games. I can see from your profile your last delivery was 3 days ago. And you are also a level 2 seller.
  2. I'm not quite sure, but I think 760 x 490 can work. I like to buy gig images from other freelancers on Fiverr. You can try that out if you can't find the creativity within you of creating a gig image.
  3. You're welcome. I'd suggest you set up new gigs that their URL align with the new title you will be using. And also, as you set up your gig. Please remember using keywords. It's simple, just switch to buying. Pretend you are a buyer looking for the services that you offer. Than you'll see those keywords, use those keywords for your gig title as well. And your gig description. When writing a gig description, don't sound like a robot. Clients are looking for real people to work with. Don't just stamp keywords without your gig description explaining to clients how it will solve their problems.
  4. Yes, remove link from your gig. You may get your account banned. There are specific portfolio links that Fiverr allow. And if you share any personal information on the links you have provided, remember Fiverr CS usually take a look at your gig. And if they find anything suspicious with the link you've added on your gig description you might end up getting your account banned. Be careful.
  5. What do you mean by pixelated? Try coming up with a targeted keyword title and gig description. Just never make the mistake of copy pasting someone else's, you'll receive a waring and result to your account being suspended. I believe in you, you can come up with a unique and keyword optimized gig title. Just try. Switch to buying, search for a services that relates to the services you offer and you'll see suggested keywords. Just like in the screenshot below, you'll see I've search for HTML website, and it showed me the suggested keywords. Those are the terms that buyers use to search for services.
  6. We kinda do the same niche me and you, what I can suggest you do, is to change your gig title. It's against your gig ranking in many ways, first, it does not have any keyword. Please, you want to make it easier for the search engine to find your gig. And also, make some changes on your gig description. If you would ask me, I would suggest that you delete those gigs and create new one. I'm sure they don't get enough exposure. By exposure I mean your daily impressions and clicks. You are offering to create websites for people, but you haven't specified what type of website you offer. Is it HTML, WordPress, Wix, Squarespace? What type of website are you offering? Your gig title should answer that even before someone gets to your gig description. Find a way to play with the search algorithm.
  7. I think YouTube links are allowed as portfolio? Or am I wrong?
  8. I think this thing about being on the first page is a myth, don't believe it. Just do your best to optimize your gigs, attaching quality work samples on your gig gallery, and using unique and attractive gig images. Think of it this way. Let's say the Fiverr search algorithm works like Google. And as you say, it put certain contents on the first page. When someone searches for something it give the results of the same content over and over again, will that make any sense. That's what you mean by saying you want your gig on the first page of search results. Like Google, the Fiverr search engine looks at relevancy. Someone search for, "Flat minimalist logo," it won't show your gig on that search results, only if your gig is optimized and simplifies the job for the search engine to find it, with the keyword; flat minimalist logo, and tags. No ones gig can remain on the first page. The search results keep on rotating on every search a buyer makes. You just make it easy for the search engine to find your gig and display it to buyers, you'll not have any problem. Stop the myth of appearing on the first page, since to me it doesn't make any sense. If it's was true your gig will always be on the first page of search results, then only a few people would have been getting orders. And that would have made the search engine inefficient for it's purpose.
  9. Apparently no one can give you an answer to that. Everyone have their own personal experience with Fiverr. It just depends on how you strategize your business on Fiverr. Just look a strategy that will work for you, understand the market first, then everything will follow. Even the so called YouTube Guru's can't give you a solution to that. Learn from other sellers, how they set up their gigs titles, gigs descriptions, learn how to communicate with buyers who contact you, and most importantly, your skills are what matter the most at the end of the day. And please, choose the right people you pick advice from, and also judge the advice you are given yourself first before implementing them. Some people will just tell you things to seem like they know, but they totally know nothing. It's a unique experience for everyone, and it needs patience, discipline, consistency, being smart, and hard work.
  10. I can say, even the internet, and the software you pay for in order to deliver quality services are expenses. When you are thinking about your price, you can also set it to cater for your time, your monthly internet bill, and your software subscription. You can't pay $50 monthly for Adobe products just to offer your services for $5.
  11. What is the reason for your account being restricted?
  12. Wow, I wish to see one of those, pandas, and bengali tigers some day in my life.
  13. Bison burger! Lol! Isn't that illegal? Even in my country people eat Buffalo steaks. I too ate it one time in pre-school in an essay writing competition. We went to an essay writing competition from Nakuru (the small town I was raised in) to Nairobi, we we're prepared a buffalo steak. Funny thing is, our essays were about preserving wild life, but in the essay competition we were prepared buffalo steak, that was just too ironic.
  14. A lioness walking in Nairobi National Park. If you take a deeper look, you'll see the city buildings. This freaks anyone out. One day a disaster happens and the animals manage to get out of the fence, I wonder how that day will look like.
  15. Africa lions, elephants, and buffalos are huge, and sometimes they cause a lot of chaos. By nowadays the government has made some measures to prevent such chaos. At least I feel somehow safe. I wouldn't want to be an African lion's dinner. 😅
  16. Grizzly bear! Amazing! In my country Kenya, the capital city Nairobi where I currently live is the only capital city in the world with a Game Reserve. The game reserve in Nairobi has the Big 5. The big 5 are; Lion, Rhinoceros, Leopard, Elephant, and Buffalo. Just by the name, those animals are extremely dangerous. And if you've ever heard of the African lion, elephant, and buffalo, you'll understand what I mean. So you are busy with your hustling in the capital city at the same time in fear of being attacked by the Big 5. If that's not scary enough, I'll like to know what's scary. If you want you can search on the internet about Nairobi.
  17. Do you think you can earn someone's trust without social proof? The same way you can't trust someone that easily is the same way Buyers find it difficult to trust new sellers with their money and project. They lack social proof that they can deliver results. It takes some patience and hard work. One thing I've learned is that, starting a business on Fiverr is not a sprint, it's a marathon.
  18. Payoneer is affordable. But for me PayPal is way more affordable. When I use PayPal, let's say I withdraw $50. I will get the same $50 without any rates. There is mobile money transfer for Kenyans called MPesa, it allows you to withdraw money from PayPal to your MPesa account completely free with no rates. The only fee I pay is the 20% Fiverr cut, the rest is mine.
  19. If you ask me, I'd suggest you make changes to your gig title, it doesn't give your gig exposure. There is no even a single keyword on your gig title. Plus, consider making some changes to your whole gig description. Remember, you are competing against thousands of other sellers. You need to give the search engine an easy time to find your gig and display it to potential buyers. I can even recommend that you delete that gig and set up something fresh. And one thing I've learned is, as a new seller, you must have multiple gigs. I recommend setting up 7 gigs. That way if all of your gigs are getting exposure, who knows, maybe one day you'll get orders from this gig, the next from the other gig. I'm doing the same niche as you. If you like you can take a look at my profile. But "DON'T BE COPY PASTE MY GIG TITLE AND DESCRIPTION, YOU'LL GET YOUR ACCOUNT BANNED FROM FIVERR - PLEASE NOTE THIS!" Not just mine, there are thousands of other successful sellers who do what you are trying to do. Just go and take a look at how they set up their gig. For setting up multiple gigs, I wish I knew earlier too. I helps a lot when you have multiple gigs running in the search engine. Best Regards, Getty WebDesign
  20. Good advice @mark_deen It's amazing seeing a fellow Kenya who has made a big progress on Fiverr. Lol! We somehow work on the same niche.
  21. I'm Kenyan and I've successfully verified my identity with the Kenyan ID Card, just take a clear shot of your ID card. Make sure their is proper lighting and upload it with a clear headshot photo of yourself. It's as simple as that.
  22. I've bought on Fiverr 3x. In all the case, there was no time I've ever consider anyone's profile picture as a reason to hire. As a matter of fact, I rarely look at a sellers profile picture.
  23. My English may not be any good, but I think your gig titles have grammatical errors. Even your profile and gig descriptions have grammatical errors. I'm a web developer, having a good grasp of English is not compulsory for me. On the other hand, you offer proofreading services, do you think a buyer can work with someone who cannot proofread their own profile and gig description. Your gig descriptions are also not good enough. You explain what you'll do in only 2 lines of texts! If I were you I'll consider making changes on those errors. And most importantly, your gig title. You say you do "proof reading" instead of "proofreading."
  24. I see no problem when people spend time on the forum. For me I learnt a lot about Fiverr from the forum. From using the right keywords to most of the things I know now about Fiverr. And just like @corsogr said, it helps me to be active on the forum at the same time communicating with other sellers on meaningful topics.
