Fiverr Review

What is Fiverr All About?

Fiverr is a platform that enables freelancers to display their skills in exchange for money. A person can provide many services ranging from Digital Marketing to giving online music lessons. Unlike other freelancing platforms where we bid for work, here clients contact you by your seeing your gigs.

Fiverr is a platform that enables potential skill owners to showcase their talent to the world.

Setting Up Your Account

First, you need to think about the niche which you want to work on. You can use already existing Gigs as a reference to understand your potential talent.

1. You can sign up using your Google Account.

2. Enter basics details like name, username, password, and other information.

3. Choose a username

4. After Sign Up, you need to confirm your email using the link in the activation email.

5. After login, add basic things like Profile picture, intro, projects, certifications, and achievements to improve your chances.

Your First Gig

You should have the skill to work for others. Some of the easiest skills for beginners are as follows:

  • Data Entry
  • Logo Making
  • Content Writing
  • Digital Marketing
  • Web Development

After choosing your favorite niche, you can proceed.

1. Write Overview for your GIG- Gig Title, Category, and Tags. Remember to add this information carefully as this helps in ranking your Gig. Use low competition keywords (long-tail keywords) for better reach.

2. Price your GIG- There are 3 plans in Fiverr. Basic, Standard, and Premium. For beginners, you should try to make it quite attractive for your potential clients. You need to earn reviews before you want to ask for your desired amount. Differentiate it from other Gigs that are already present on Fiverr by offering content that might help them.

3. Write Description and FAQ- Give answers to general questions which your clients might ask. You need to have a strong illustration of your offering to get selected.

4. Establish your Gig Requirements- Tell your clients about the basic information you need to get started.

5. Adding photos- The first impression is the last. Add plenty of photos to showcase your earlier work. This will add to your credibility and might help you in getting your first order faster.

6. Publish and promote on social media- After creating your Gig, you should promote it to multiple platforms which can help in fetching results.

Fiverr Vs Upwork?

Many people get confused between Fiverr and other freelancing platforms. While on other platforms we need to bid manually on each project/job, we need to create separate gigs for each skill. Ratings matter the most on both platforms. People need to earn appraisals for more opportunities. 

There are merits and demerits of both the platforms-

For choosing Fiverr- For those who possess a certain skill in which they are flexible. It would earn you a decent amount. 

For choosing Upwork- For those who have a wider knowledge apart from the regular knowledge you have in your domain. It would earn you more in the long run. 

Both platforms are good. It is just about what for you and what doesn't.

Common Mistakes to Be Avoided

  • You should be active in responding to your clients. Your response time should be faster. It would be better if you install Fiverr App for getting all the latest notifications.
  • You should sound confident while addressing your Gig. It should not appear that you are unaware of your work.
  • Don't waste too much time on unethical buyers.
  • Deliver your order on time.
  • Change your Gig description, title, SEO, tags, and keyword if your impressions and click rates are decreasing.
