The tips and strategies you need to put in place for getting more orders on Fiverr:
As a seller on fiverr, you need to create the right Gigs, price them accurately and correctly, deliver on time (as fast as possible), and have a raft of rave reviews from satisfied buyers. You should market your Gigs to keep funneling income into your bank account every time.
A word from “Aaliyaan”-WordPress Specialist, also Top-Rated Seller on Fiverr, states and I quote,
“For beginners, you must be creative with your Gigs in any category. You probably won’t find something completely new to offer, but you can be different in how you offer your Gigs or services.
Part one: Skeleton of a Perfect Gig Creation.
Standard and Professional Gigs are at the heart of success on Fiverr, and to get the most from the Fiverr website, you just need to build the perfect and the best Gig.
THE GIG TITLE.
The standard and perfect title that describes a single service, so buyers know exactly what they’re getting or probably spending their money on. It should say what you will offer and for what purpose. It’s as simple as that.
Tags are the keywords you write that best describe your service, which help make your Gig more visible in relevant searches. Using the exact same terms as a category or sub-category, is not recommended. Make sure the tags you choose describe your Gig in more detail. Please make sure you don’t use multiple words as your keywords. You can use a maximum of 2-3 keywords for just one tag.
PACKAGES AND PRICING
Gigs may include three packages. Buyers should be able to identify the right package from the title. When pricing, use good, better, best approach, also known as Goldilocks pricing.
“The aim, of course, is for you to be properly compensated for your time, and as long as the quality of the product is there, then the pricing should scale accordingly.” Tom M Smork – Graphic Designer, Top Rated Seller
This is just a gig example you can replicate. You can choose the best price you want but you should not be too greedy to set high gig pricing at the start when you’re still looking for buyers to give you work. Your high and unreasonable price will definitely scare them away.
The Gig Extras are the additional services you want to include in your Gig. Outline the additional services that Fiverr buyers may need relating to your root Gig. This will allow you to increase your revenue. For example, with logo design, your Gig extras could be business cards and stationery designs. If it’s Book Formatting, your Gig Extras could be Discount on selected services like Book Cover Designs such as Amazon Createspace Paperback Cover or Kindle eBook Cover and the likies.
This is the overall service – you should elaborate on what your Gig title promises. Use a proven copywriting strategy, which will help engage, convince, and turn readers into customers. We are speaking about the AIDA model. You start by capturing your reader’s attention and interests, which relate to what their problems are and then convince them that you have a solution for their issues.
“In my Gig description, I urge people to contact me before ordering so we can discuss their needs, and I can provide them with a custom quote” Lauren Meikle “laurenmeikle” – Writer & Proofreader, Top Rated Seller
Use the FAQs section to answer the common questions buyers may have. These will appear on your Gig page, and will help answer common issues that may help a buyer gain the trust to purchase your service.
The Gig image should be a great example of your work. Don’t upload
images that you are not authorized to use because it’d be rejected as many times as possible. Build trust by including a picture of yourself, and using an explainer video if possible. Keep a consistent brand identity for the images for different gigs.
This is mostly relevant to sellers in any category. This particular feature will display images from your own previous customers works. It is the best way to showcase your skills and what you offer, which is key in building trust with potential buyers or customers on Fiverr.
When it comes to building your Gig, you should focus on doing ONE thing well.
This helps eliminate the discovery phase on the buyer’s side. In other words, if you want to focus on writing niche, be patient enough to revolve around the niche scrutiny. Sit down to write and provide everything that has to do with writing niche generally. Do not move from niche to another. Buyers will not too trust your service and this will make them to consider your service unstable and unprofessional.
