1. Fiverr Buyer Requests
This is a smart feature that Fiverr has included. It’s a great help for beginners to get started.
This is where you take advantage. You offer your services for a lesser price than your competition. This is mandatory!
To establish yourself on Fiverr, you will have to offer your services far more cheaper than others. This is the only way. Once you start getting more orders, you can eventually increase your price.
2. Giving Something For Free
People like getting something for free. So, if you provide a service on Fiverr, try over delivering it or offering a Buy 1-get-1.
I can guarantee you that people will start buying from you especially if you provide a “buy one get one free” offer.
3. Provide a Compelling Description
Gig descriptions need to be well structured and should be on point. The buyer should understand what exactly is the thing that you are selling.
Break your paragraphs and do it in bullet points. This can make people read your description.
Also, look out for spelling and grammar mistakes, you don’t want that to happen if you are selling services like content writing and other writing related stuffs.
4. Adding a Video in Your Gig
Video can increase the engagement rate of a Gig. It’s very true because I have seen myself playing some videos when looking for gigs on Fiverr.
Hire a freelancer to do a short video for your gig. You can find these services on Fiverr itself.
If you can do it yourself, then that would be much better!
5. Create Related Gigs not “Same Gigs”
I have seen a lot of Fiverr freelancers doing this. They create many gigs but with different headlines like “create a unique website”, “Create an Awesome website”, “Create a responsive website”. The Fiverr team has itself confirmed that doing this will not increase your ranking and rather can have a negative impact.
So, instead of doing this try providing related services. If you are a web developer, you can offer something like “Create a website”, “Fix errors in Your Website”, “Add additional Functionalities to Your website”.
This will let you gain more exposure because all the three gigs target different keywords and you are more likely to get an order from any one of them.
