Recommended Tips to become a Successful Top Seller:
If you’re a beginner who wants to become a successful seller on Fiverr, follow these steps.
- Keep the title short and to the point
There is this one mistake that most of the freelancers do unintentionally. They write long and distracting gig titles. Your gig title is not supposed to persuade the buyer it is only supposed to tell the buyer about the services that you’re offering. Keeping this in mind use short gig titles of five to eight words and use searched keywords in your gig titles. This helps the buyers locate your gigs easily.
- Gig description
Gig descriptions should be comparatively longer, detailed and explanatory because they tell the buyer how skilled and experienced you are. Describe your gig clearly. Tell the customers what exactly you are offering. If you’re an article writer, what kind of articles do you write? If you’re a web developer or a graphic designer, explain the kind of work that you do. Let the buyer know about your work. Add as many details as you can and try to use the searched keywords as well.
- Highlight the important points in the gig description
Fiverr allows you to highlight the important point of the gig description. You can highlight the keywords or change their font size so that they stand out. Try to discover Fiverr and make use of the tools available to you. Make your gig unique and distinctive, make it outstanding and make it convincing.
- Offer market competitive rates
A good dealer knows how to deal with his marketplace. When there are so many producers and all of them are trying to produce quality work, the price is what influences the market. The world of freelancing is full of skilled freelancers and the customers now look for those who offer market competitive rates. Do not start doing work for free in order to get work but at the same time do not set your standards too high to get work. Play around with the prices and remain in the middle of the ship. Set comparatively low prices in the beginning then start increasing them gradually. Once you’ve gained experience set a standard price and do not settle for anything less than that. Make your place in the market and then stick to that place.
- Add Graphics
There is no doubt in the fact that graphics appeal the eyes more than the text does. Fiverr allows you to add videos or images to your gigs. Recent surveys have proven that gigs with graphics appeal more customers than those without them. Make a video to explain your work or your gig. If you don’t have a video you can add an image. However, the image must be in high resolution. Do not add random videos or images on your gigs, they leave a bad impression on the buyer. Add professional images or videos only. You can higher Photoshop and photography experts to do this job for you.
- Offer a money back guarantee
In order to avoid negative reviews or thumbs down, you can offer a guarantee with your gigs. If buyers are not happy with your services, you can offer them to cancel the order so that their negative remarks disappear.
- Ask for feedback
Just like negative reviews are bad for the reputation of the seller, similarly positive feedback adds to his reputation. Always ask the buyers to leave you their feedback.

You can share your gigs wit your friends, family and clients. Fiverr allows you to share your gigs on social media sites. Make sure your gigs reach maximum people so that you get more buyers.
