You can get the order and start work on your order and you receive the amount after completing the task. If you want to check some time tested tricks to get first order and bring more.

Making Account of Fiverr

Make account

Make account

It is not a big deal to make the account on Fiverr and you log in with the Google or facebook account. When you continue with Facebook or Google, it takes your real name from the Google account or Facebook ID and most of the people can make mistake and they opt for particular name. you need to use your real name as brand and you can also run the account under agency or company name and they can also use some pseudonym, they need to stop for a moment and insert the proper name.

Personal Branding

Personal branding

Personal branding

The companies are active and they learn that various agencies outsource highly paid work to underpaid and substandard freelancers and they can earn $50 logo looks like $10. You should ensure that your profile should be under your own name with the real and professional photo. It is essential to talk about certain trend in Pakistani freelancers. They use VPN or RDP to make accounts of US or UK under their native names.

The behavior of the buyer on Fiverr becomes bias towards non native freelancers but there are huge number of Pakistanis and Indians, who are still on Fiver and they are still running their accounts under their real names and real profile photos. They are successful and they kept their standard as they were picked by Fiverr to show the Fiverr community in the relevant countries. You can also opt for the native English speaker name and it is not violation of Fiverr rules as they do not change proxy settings and maliciously change their location.

Approach

Fiverr has categories for different micro services and if you go to main category of Writing & Translation, you will find various sub categories like Press Releases, Business Copywriting, Articles & Blog Posts. They can also find some of the sub-sub categories under the sub-categories.

The category of Business and Copywriting, it shows more filters from which the buyer can narrow down his search like website copy, Ad Copy, Product Listings etc.

You should narrow down your approach to single main category instead of spreading the categories. You can make the 3 to 4 gigs in the sub category and it will cover all sub-sub-categories and the best way is that it goes deeper and tries to complete the expertise.

Quality Trumps Quantity Always

quality

quality

There are many people, who still think that Fiverr is nothing but $5 micro outsourcing website. Fiverr is evolved into one hell of melting pot of excellent talent and you can earn a lot with custom offers and new Pro Program of Fiverr, which is now introducing the handpicked niche experts.

Some people waste their time in finalizing order details and listen to grievances of each customer, they ensure the no one leaves the review less than 4.5 and ensure that their delivery does not get rejected. One buyer with enough pockets is convenient to discuss with him and you need to satisfy him and also turn him into repeat customer. You need to gear your research, keywords, gigs and efforts to get big buyers.

Ultimate Loophole

The loopholes are found as bad word and you can use it to make the customers happy and line up the pockets. The sellers find customers, get orders, deliver and dump the clients to serve the person next in the queue of sellers, which is the wrong approach. The right approach is that you put yourself in shoes of buyers and you can tell that they are inexperienced, young, ambitious and tight on budget internet entrepreneurs.

Most of them have idea of online business and they need graphics, website and business names and taglines, social media marketing, content writing and SEO and various other services.

Upselling

Upselling is the skill to sell something, which are premium, additional or special to customers and in most of the cases, the new level of same service that they have sold them.

We suppose that you have sold a script to customer for whiteboard explainer video they needed. You can upsell with the offer of whiteboard explainer video and place the order by asking them for authentic native English voice over to arrange for them. You need to shoot some samples and change the order and you upsell $20 worth of video + $15 worth of voiceover but at that time the actual order was $5-10 video script.

Approach towards Buyer Requests

approach

approach

Most of the people, who worked on Upwork will find Fiverr gig system excellent or they can offer the total unfair advantage to the successful sellers. You need to go to Buyer Requests under selling tab, when you sign into Fiverr account and find out Buyer Request according to the categories that you are dealing. Most of the buyers, who fail with Upwork or Fiverr Buyer Requests are such clients, who will:

  • They look for highly priced requests
  • Choose the request to require somewhat different expertise
  • Load offer with unnecessary details.

There are some of the best ways to get the jobs from the Buyer Requests is to:

  • Get the least expensive orders
  • Double check as the clients wants is within ambit of skills
  • Add bullet points to offer and those points should show why you should be picked e.g; unlimited revisions, 3 years of experience of Java, 100% money back warranty.

Importance of Keywords

When someone starts working on Fiverr, they should know about gig titles, search tags and descriptions, which are needed to be infused with proper focus keywords. Most of the writers do not know the difference between slogan and tagline but Americans know it well. If you are copywriter and you are offered the Business Names and taglines (slogans) and in return you choose slogan then how do you think it is for your gig to reach to the American entrepreneur, who look for taglines in the search box of Fiverr.

Gig Photos / Videos

gig photo

Gig is actually a skill on Fiverr and you can sell it to the prospective customer. If coding is gig, voiceover is gig and every skill can sell is a gig. There are thousands of the gigs in ‘deep web’ of Fiverr that never appear on the surface and you ensure that your gigs are noticed when you make it. There are some of the tricks which can help you as there are very important gig photo / videos.

Gig Description

You can get the portability of getting first order trickles down to gig description. If you have completed everything carefully, but the gig description does not have quality of good sales copy and you will not sell it.

If you are selling on Fiverr and there is none to sell it without cheesy, corny and compelling the sales pitch. There are the proper uses of option including Bold font and it is needed to highlight the important phrases. They need to start with the establishment of authority, e.g. coming from savvy business card design expert, who made business stationery designs for over 15000 buyers on Fiverr, they can tactfully explain the detail of service and finish the description with the impressive and catchy style.
