You must have heard of people bragging about how they make at least $1000 on Fiverr monthly without much stress. Making such astronomical amount is not rocket science, it’s just that they find a way to place their gig(s) on the top of the search page and put it right in front of service(s) buyers. But it is rather unfortunate that they want to keep their secret locked up in their closet. That is where I come in, to fill you in on how to optimize your gig from bottom page to first page.
Before I proceed, I would like to give a low down on what Fiverr is to the newbies who are just getting to know about it for the first time, so that they can also be carried along.
Fiverr is an online marketplace for lean entrepreneurs to offer services ranging from Graphics & Design, Writing & Translation, Video & Animation, Programming & Tech, Advertising etc. The advantageous part of being a fiverr freelancer is that you do not need to be super creative before you can make money on fiverr, just don’t be lazy and believe me the sky will be your starting point!
Creating account on fiverr is so easy. To those who do not have an account yet, you can click here to join fiverr and start making easy and fast money. Now after creating your account the next thing that comes to your mind is “how do I rank my gig from bottom to top”.
Do not worry as I will be sharing with you some salient points you need to have at the back of your mind to successfully rank your gig from bottom to top.
- Gig Title And Category
You need to set out your gig title and there is provision for a maximum of 80 characters input. Do not make the title too long. Briefly concise that explains your offering is advised. For instance, if your offering is under Writing & Translation, you can draft out something like this: “I will provide your best creative and engaging writing.” Try to be crafty and not too copyish.
For the category, if you are offering Writing & Translation, then you will have sub-categories options like: creative writing, articles and blogposts, proofreading and editing. Choose anyone that best suit your expertise.
- Use The Right Tags
This is an important factor to put in to consideration as it helps to determine the success of your gig. Be careful not to use the wrong tags for the right niche. For instance, some people will use a Graphics & Design tags for a Writing & Translation niche. Make sure you use the right tags for the right niche (e.g, a Writing & Translation tags for Writing & Translation niche). Additionally, do not copy literally the tags of top sellers as that will affect your rank. You should only endeavor to use it only as guide.
- Buy And Use Gig Video
Aside putting some random pictures in your gig, another proven method of ranking your gig is to use gig video. This helps generate more traffic to your gig and set you apart from other sellers that mainly use pictures. The gig video captures the attention of buyers and indulge them to see what you have got to say or see the illustration portrayed by the video. Getting a gig video is easy with just a few dollars off your account. You can go to the fiverr search box and enter ‘Gig Video’, you will be amazed to see how many sellers are offering the service for just meagre sum of $5. Get one and put it in your gig for amazing result.
- Purchase Reviews
The best proven method of ranking your gig is to purchase reviews from your fellow fiverr seller or alternatively, create a dummy buyer account and take charge yourself. The reason for this is that people want to buy safe and reading reviews of previous buyers about what they have got to say about the work of the seller further assure them of what they want to spend their money on.
However, you have to be very careful to not make the two accounts look too similar, else it will look fake. Make sure that the communication between yourself is enough to convince anyone that such is between a real buyer and seller. Do not be too quick to make delivery, wait at least 2-3hours to the end of the delivery duration before you make delivery. Try not to give yourself a 5star rating, 4.8star should suffice.
- Good communication Skills
Having a good communication skills will go a long way to help you in your sale. Try to be formal, polish in your English as that will assure your buyers of your expertise. Be polite with your buyer.
