  1. If you want to improve your freelancing career here on Fiverr, you need to build credibility on the platform. It helps prospective buyers identify you as someone to trust. It helps you sell more to the right people. But there's a problem with this. To build credibility, you need buyers to order from you, right? This is a catch-22 holding many new sellers back. Luckily, there are some ways to build credibility on Fiverr, even if you have just set up your account! It will still take time, effort, research and energy, but following these steps can make it much less miserable. Here's how you establish yourself as a true professional without spending years doing it. Disclaimer before we begin: You have to actually be good at something, in order to market yourself as a professional. If you're not, you're nothing but a pretender. Pretenders fail. TL;DR: Stick to your prices, and don't negotiate too much. Maintain a professional and well-made gig and profile. Look the part (no webcam shots at the kitchen table). Use the gig gallery to your advantage by showing off your work. Provide valuable content to your buyers to demonstrate industry expertise. It could be a guide you've written on the forum or a PDF in your gig gallery that is helpful to the buyer. Offer free consultations if it makes sense in your niche. Don't just copy/paste your responses to buyer requests: make each response count. Add your education to your Fiverr profile if it's relevant. Act like you mean business. Don't call people "bro" or "my friend". Take courses on Fiverr Learn to build credibility, and gain new skills. Say no with confidence if a buyer has unrealistic expectations or if you lack the expertise required to deliver the goods. Follow up during the order and ensure the buyer knows you're there for them after the order. 1. Don't be too flexible with your gig pricing It's tempting to accept any offer you get as a new seller. Negotiating when you have zero reviews can be beneficial. But don't keep doing it! When you have landed a sale or two with happy buyers, it's time to stick to your price! If you have any hopes of landing higher-paying clients, allowing too much room for negotiation can hurt your reputation and credibility by telling buyers that you don't know your worth. If you lack confidence in your own abilities, the buyer will probably lack confidence in them as well. P.S. A five-dollar gig instantly shows that you don't know your worth. If you sell anything for five bucks these days, you're not coming across as a professional. It will only serve to damage your credibility. 2. Make sure your profile and gigs are well-made Your gig and profile is like a virtual storefront. If it's ugly, buyers will go elsewhere. A professional-looking gig and profile will land more sales. That means no typos, gig thumbnails made by anyone but a designer, messy gig descriptions, etc. A well-made gig and profile will make you look more credible. Use Fiverr sellers to help you out in areas you struggle with. You also need to look the part. Just because you're working from home doesn't mean you should look like a slob on your profile picture. First impressions do matter! Dress up and hire a professional photographer. Doing all of this will cost you some money. But if you're not willing to invest in your business, perhaps you should consider a different career. 3. Showcase your best work Don't just tell the buyers that you're good at something. Show it. Even as a new seller, you have access to the gig gallery. You set it up when you make your gig. You can upload a gig video, photos, graphics and PDFs. Use the gallery to show off your best work. If you're a designer, create some stunning examples of your work. If you're a voiceover, upload your best demos. You get the idea. Showing prospective buyers your work will help them decide if you're the right seller for the job. Using the gig gallery properly will make you look more credible. 4. Provide valuable content to educate buyers Since you can't send buyers away from Fiverr, you should find ways of showing them your industry expertise on the platform. Examples: Write industry-specific guides for buyers on the forum Let's say your buyer is looking for a logo design but is having trouble deciding on a color. If you respond by sending them a well-written guide (that you wrote) about how to choose the right color for a logo, that immediately shows the buyer that you know your stuff. This is just an example. Be creative! Offer free consultations The goal of such a consultation should always be to land the sale by showing the client that you know your stuff. But make the buyer feel like it's about them (because it is). Use every consultation as an oppurtunity to learn more about their business. Knowledge is power and it will help you deliver better services. Use gig PDFs You can upload case studies from previous clients or work examples in the gig PDFs. Share them with your buyers if they reach out. 5. Submit high-quality responses to buyer requests Using buyer requests can be a pain in the neck. Frankly, I don't recommend using them to any established seller. But as a new seller, you will get access to some buyer requests after you've set up a gig. But making an effective response can be difficult. You have to be fast; otherwise, the request might disappear, but you must also nail the response. Beyond having perfect grammar, you should focus on what the buyer is looking for in the first sentence and avoid copy/pasted lists of what you can do. If the buyer is looking for a WordPress website, they don't need to know that you're a social media marketer. Including irrelevant stuff only tells the buyer that you have copied/pasted your response. Right there, you've lost your credibility. Start by stating specifics from their request. That tells the buyer that you've read their request. Continue with your value proposition, i.e. why the buyer should order from you and not someone else. Include relevant skills. 6. Add relevant education to your profile You can add your education on Fiverr. It will help build credibility, especially if it's relevant to your Fiverr gigs. It's by no means required, but it will make you stand out. 7. Act like you mean business Don't be casual. Don't respond using lots of emojis or call your buyer "bro" or "friend". They are not your brother nor your friend. They are your client. You instantly become more confident and dependable by acting like a professional. Your gig is a business. Treat it like one. 8. Take courses on Fiverr Learn When you take a course on Fiverr learn, it gets added to your Fiverr profile. Showing you've completed courses relevant to your gigs can help build credibility. The best part about doing this, is that you gain new skills while doing it. 9. Say no with confidence If a buyer comes to you with a project you can't deliver, say no. This could be a buyer with unrealistic deadlines, or perhaps you don't have the expertise required to deliver the goods. Being honest with your buyer and yourself will save you from trouble like negative reviews/feedback and help build credibility. I've said no to jobs before because I didn't think I was a great fit. A week later, the buyer returned with a different project and said they were impressed by my honesty and for setting realistic expectations. That job earned me 2000 bucks, and I still work with the buyer to this day. If you're in a situation where you don't have the required skills, refer the buyer to someone else. People remember stuff like that. 10. Always follow up You should follow up with the buyer during and after an order. Because it might come across as spam/annoying to message a buyer after an order, do this inside the order delivery message. Make sure they know that they can reach out to you if needed and that you're there for them. But don't forget: you should never work for free. It shouldn't be free if they need more work done that wasn't included in the original order. It harkens back to the "know your worth" part at the beginning. You should also follow up during the order by asking relevant questions, letting the buyer know that you're working on the project, and when they can expect results. In conclusion If you're a new seller, there are still ways of building your credibility on Fiverr, creating trust and engaging your buyers, even if you have zero reviews. But it takes time, effort and skill to do so, not to mention, investment on your part. How do you work to build trust and credibility on Fiverr?
  2. One of the most of questions I come across is CAN FREELANCING BE A CAREER? The answer is YES! But, certainly there are conditions that need to be followed properly. Your must: ~ Deliver projects efficiently and try to get a positive review ~ Answer all the questions asked - before and after the delivery of project ~ Offer them longer term relationship by adding membership plans ~ Overdeliver, this term will always keep you business Regards
  3. It's not a bad journey at all, right now I'm thinking is it good to depend on only Freelancing? I was doing good actually but suddenly I stop working for a few days I mean I was not active that much & I notice my gig ranking went down & now I'm not getting any new buyer messages. I really don't know what should do right now. Because we are human being so we need some break but if I see everything is gone after break then it really feels bad. If you already facing this kind of problem, how do you deal? I would love to know. Thanks!
  4. Hey guys, Recently I have been thinking about freelancing in general and comparing it to regular jobs. As with most things, it doesn't seem to be only black and white and I would like to discuss the differences and subtle nuances between these two types of career paths and hear your opinion. To me, freelancing is more of a business model than a job. You've got branding, marketing, service, customer support, and all the things required to run a successful business. I've realized early on that if I wanted to earn money doing what I enjoy, I have to exercise and understand these different elements of business. And while this journey is seemingly daunting at first, it can also be really fun and exciting. While there are many pros and cons of freelancing, I picked the ones that stood out to me: Pro: Mobility. This one might not be universal for everyone, as I know many of you have studios and dedicated workspaces. But for me personally, it has been one of the biggest pros as I can travel and work at the same time. Con: No set work hours. While there are semi-effective ways around it, I've had plenty of orders come in at 2 AM on the weekend, which makes it a con for me personally. I might want to utilize the availability function more in the future, but at least for now it seems wise to be available on the weekends. What are your biggest pros and cons of freelancing? Would love to hear your thoughts on this.
  5. Hello everyone! I am an MS student at Riphah International University, Lahore, Pakistan, currently working on my thesis on mental, emotional and psycho-social challenges faced by gig workers around the world.

The purpose of this thesis is to understand some of the challenges arising from engaging in platform work. Please consider sparing 5-10 minutes of your valuable time for this brief survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeb8qt68ZMAnHiiSVSD7WNYhvARqJptPeWUacjLNxehgV0z9A/viewform?usp=sf_link I would also be most grateful if you could kindly forward this message to your platform worker colleagues and contacts as well. Thank you! Sincerely, Nur Ariana
