By following these tips, you'll be well on your way to selling more gigs on Fiverr!
4. Make Your Gigs Unique
There are probably 1000 gigs on Fiverr that offer to translate a page of text to English, or offering English lessons via Skype. A large majority of these sellers are probably offering 2 or 3 more zero-skill gigs, but what is most significant is that these sellers are making no money. If you want to make money on Fiverr, you must think about things that are unique to you. Think about something that you are truly good at, something that is unique to you, and apply that thing to your gigs.
3. Make Your Gigs Professional
In order to make money on Fiverr, you need to create a reputation for yourself. If anybody looks at your Gig's page and sees a negative review, they WILL NOT make a purchase. For this reason, you need to treat every customer professionally and make sure that they are happy. In addition to this, you need to make sure that you use proper spelling and grammar in your posts. A misspelled word is a red flag that buyers will avoid.
2. Add video
The easiest thing to do in order to attract people to your Gigs is to add video! Even if people are not interested in purchasing your Gig, they may be interested in watching a video of whatever you do. It does not matter what your Gig is or if you do not have good video equipment, just make a video explaining what your Gig does with some examples of your work. If you are selling yourself in your Gig, make sure that you sell yourself in your video.
1. Display your work!
It is very hard for a buyer to justify a purchase when they are not sure what they are purchasing. Work hard on some examples and display them, along with any work you do for buyers. If your work is good and you display it, your Gig will get bought.
Remember, that no matter how many of these tips you follow, you must have a quality Gig in order to make money on Fiverr. If you want to do well, you must practice and perfect your Gig!
