Fiverr Seller Best Practices

  1. 1. Fiverr Seller Best Practices
  2. 2. Fiverr Seller Best Practices 2 | Fiverr Seller Best Practices Gig Extras Pricing Method 13 14 General Guidelines Language 12 15 Gig Title 3 Gig Category 4 Gig Description 5 Gig Requirements 7 Gig Images 8 Gig Video 10
  3. 3. Gig Title 1 1. Your Gig® title describes what you offer to do for $5 and should be written in the standard Fiverr format. A Gig description begins with I will” and ends with “for $5.” What you insert in between is your $5 service, starting with a verb. For example: “record a one minute voiceover.” 2 2. Keep your Gig title informative but concise. Save the specifics for the Gig description. 3 | Fiverr Seller Best Practices FIVERR 3. Since the Gig title ends by default with the words “for $5,” the title must reflect only the service you will be delivering for the price of $5. Adding services to this description (such as your Gig extras) that won’t be included in the $5 offer will cause your buyers to have unrealistic expectations, leading to dissatisfaction and negative reviews. 4. Don’t repeat keywords (such as “voiceover” in the above example) in the Gig title or otherwise attempt to optimize it for SEO. This will not improve the position of your Gig in searches. 3 4
  4. 4. Gig Category 1 1. Pick your Gig category wisely. Think about the category your buyers will be using to search for services like the one you are offering. Consider taking a few minutes to search on Fiverr for Gigs similar to yours to see what category the bestselling ones are in. 2 2. Don’t list Gigs under the “Other” category unless there is no other category that fits your service. Take the time to view the entire directory of categories to see if one exists that may bring more relevant traffic to your Gig. 4 | Fiverr Seller Best Practices
  5. 5. Gig Description 1 1. Use the description box to introduce yourself and your service. Be sure to include all the specifications and information your buyers need to know about your service. Explaining clearly exactly what your buyers will get increases the chance that they will be satisfied with your work and provide positive feedback to help you establish your reputation. 2 2. Make your description clear and detailed. Try to look at your Gig from a buyer’s point of view. Think of all the questions that might be asked and provide the answers in your description. 5 | Fiverr Seller Best Practices 3. Your Gig description must be your own. Copying another seller’s description and using it as your own may lead to having your Gig denied or removed from the marketplace. 4. Communicate to your potential buyers that you would be happy to work with them. Try not to include too many limitations and disclaimers that may discourage buyers. Try to focus more on the things you WILL do and less on the things you WON’T do. 3 4 a
  6. 6. Gig Description 5 5. Don’t repeat keywords or use similar words excessively, and don’t employ any other SEO practice in your Gig description. This will not improve the position of your Gig in searches. 6 6. Do not use graphic symbols, such as “4”, “#”, excessively in your Gig description. 7 7. If you want your buyers to contact you before placing an order, be sure to mention this in the description. Do not use the “Gig requirements box” for this purpose because buyers see this only after they place an order. 6 | Fiverr Seller Best Practices 8. You may not refer to sites other than Fiverr.com in your Gig description. However, for the purpose of displaying additional samples of your work, you may link to flickr for photos, illustrations and graphics, and to youtube for video, audio and animation. (Note: All communications, ordering, delivery and payments must be completed exclusively on Fiverr.) 8 b
  7. 7. Instructions for Buyers (Gig Requirements) 1 1. The information in this field will be sent to buyers automatically when they order your Gig, so this is your chance to greet them and let them know what information they need to provide before you can start working on their order. If you leave this field empty, the order counter starts running immediately after the order is placed, so unless you really don’t need any input from the buyer to get started, do not leave this field empty. 7 | Fiverr Seller Best Practices 2. Remember, if there is something your potential buyers should know before placing an order, don’t enter it here. Buyers see this information only after placing the order. 3. Do not mention payment methods in your Gig instructions. Making a payment cannot be one of your requirements to start working on an order, since Fiverr credits you for the order only after it is completed. 2 3 a e b 3 6 c d g h 8 7 5 6 f
  8. 8. Gig Images 8 | Fiverr Seller Best Practices 5. Use different images for each Gig you create to make it easier for buyers to select the right product. 6. The Gig gallery allows you to upload up to three images. We strongly recommend that you take advantage of all three image slots, but use the first slot for your favorite image - this is the image that will appear as the main Gig image. 5 6 1. Make sure your Gig images are clear and sharp. They should not be blurry, pixelated, too dark or washed out. 2. To fit the full frame, images should be 682 pixels wide and 459 pixels high. 3. Your images should clearly represent the service you are providing. 4. You should own the copyright to your images - for example, you took the photo or created the image yourself - or you should have a license to use the image. 1 2 3 4
  9. 9. Gig Images 7 7. If you offer a Graphics & Design Gig or any other Gig where the look of your product is important, we recommend that you use Gig images to display actual samples of your work and that you choose images that truly represent the style and standard of quality of the product you will deliver to your customers. 8 9 8. Do not include any URLs in your Gig images. 9. Do not add misleading symbols or badges to your images that are similar to the ones used on Fiverr to represent seller levels, Featured Gigs, Express Gigs, etc. 9 | Fiverr Seller Best Practices TIP For more tips on Gig images click here
  10. 10. Gig Video Your Gig video is an important way to introduce yourself to potential buyers and explain your service, showcase your talent, and share samples of your work. We strongly recommend adding a video to attract sales, especially if you have skills that can benefit from a live demonstration, such as presenting, acting, narrating, singing, etc. 10 | Fiverr Seller Best Practices Use the guidelines below to help you create a great Gig video: 1. The video should reflect the service as it will be delivered to the buyer, including the same standard of quality. Avoid using the services of a third party to create a Gig video for you, which might lead buyers to expect a standard of quality that you cannot deliver to them. 2. You must own the copyright to your video. In addition to being misleading, using someone else’s video may violate copyright laws. 1 2
  11. 11. Gig Video 7. Make sure your audio quality is sufficient. 11 | Fiverr Seller Best Practices Videos with no sound won’t be accepted. 7 8 9 8. Use a different video for each Gig. 9. When using a smartphone to record your video, remember to hold your phone horizontally. Filming vertically compromises the quality. 10 10. If your video is not in English, please add English subtitles. 11 11. Keep the content appropriate. 3. On your video, be sure to mention that your service is exclusive to Fiverr, or alternatively, add the Fiverr logo or a subtitle with the text “Exclusively on Fiverr” to the video. For this purpose, please take note that Fiverr is pronounced like the number “5.” 4. Do not share any links or contact details in your Gig video. 5. Keep your video to the point and up to one minute in length. 6. Make sure your video quality is sufficient. Videos with no images at all won’t be accepted. 3 4 5 6
  12. 12. Language 1. To maximize your sales potential, it is best to publish your Gig in English or make it bilingual. Publishing your Gig in English ensures you reach the largest possible audience and increases the chance that your Gig will come to the attention of our editorial team and be promoted in the marketplace. If you create your Gig only in a language our editors don’t speak, they can’t evaluate its quality and are less likely to select it when looking for quality content to promote. 12 | Fiverr Seller Best Practices 2. We also provide the option to create Gigs in Spanish to feature on es.fiverr.com. There are two ways to create Spanish Gigs: a. Create an English version of the Gig. Then go to Sales > Manage Gigs and click on “Add Translation” next to the Gig you would like to translate into Spanish. b. Switch to es.fiverr.com by selecting “Español” from the drop-down menu at the bottom of any page. Then go to the top menu of the Spanish site and select VENTAS > Crear Gig. 1 2 a b
  13. 13. Multiples and Gig Extras 1 1. Decide what you’re willing to offer for $5, keeping in mind that as you level up as a seller, you’ll be able to add Gig Extras to your service. 2 2. It’s always a good tip to offer a little more in the beginning in order to build sales and establish your reputation. As a new seller you will be able to offer up to 4 multiples so you can hit the ground running. 13 | Fiverr Seller Best Practices
  14. 14. Pricing Method $ $ $ $ 14 | Fiverr Seller Best Practices 1. Every Gig on Fiverr must start at $5, meaning it has to contain an initial basic level of service/product that buyers can order for $5. Gig extras can be added in $5 multiples, as long as the Gig still gives value for $5. 2. To offer add-ons to your $5 service, let buyers know your pricing system so that they buy the right number of Gigs to cover the service they want. For example, $5 for an English to French translation of up to 500 words, $10 for translations between 500 and 1000 words, and so on. As you earn Levels on Fiverr, based on your performance and reputation, you’ll unlock tools that will enable you to offer multiple Gigs or Extras (add-ons) in a single transaction. 1 2 $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $
  15. 15. General Guidelines and Tips 1 1. You may not create more than one Gig for each product. However, it is smart to translate your skills into multiple products and use a different Gig to sell each product. 2 2. The Fiverr marketplace is based on a “service as a product” philosophy, in which freelancers translate their skills into $5 worth of product. For your Gigs to be successful, it is best to focus on very specific products rather than setting your Gig to accommodate all kinds of services in your field of expertise. For example, if you are a graphic designer, it goes without saying that you can assist with all graphic needs. On Fiverr, however, it is best if you create specific Gigs for typical graphic needs, such as logo design, banners, flyers, or business cards, rather than generally offering to do graphic design work. 15 | Fiverr Seller Best Practices o x 8
  16. 16. General Guidelines and Tips 16 | Fiverr Seller Best Practices 5 5. Do not include any adult, offensive or inappropriate content in your Gigs. Fiverr attracts buyers of all ages and nationalities, and we need you to help us keep our content respectable and age appropriate. 6 6. Gigs must include a valuable service. Gigs with the title “I will do nothing” will be denied. 7. If instead of offering your services, you need a job done for you, Fiverr gives you the option to submit a Gig request through our “request a Gig” service and let our talented sellers come to you. Move your cursor over your username in the upper right hand corner of the website and select “Request a Gig.” 7 3. Do not charge for shipping unless you deliver physical goods. 4. Do not provide your personal contact information, and do not ask your buyers for theirs. Exchanging contact details for communication outside of Fiverr is not allowed. 3 4 m f
