Looking to bring in a little cash for the holidays, or even all year round? Fiverr is a great place to do it. On this platform, you offer simple services for $5 and offer upgrades that clients can choose, improving your profit. It is pretty simple to navigate, but what isn’t so simple is creating a good gig, one that will catch the attention of clients and help you make money. Below are 6 tips for creating a good gig on Fiverr.
You don’t want your title to be too long, but it does need to convey what your gig is, why it is different, and do this while catching the attention of clients browsing through gigs. Browse through similar gigs and note which titles grab you. Then, imitate those without directly copying them.
These aren’t required, which means that not every gig uses them. And that means that using them helps your gig stand out. It is a small step to take, but one that can make a big difference.
Clients want to see your work, and you want them to see the very best. Use the gig gallery to showcase what you can do. If your work isn’t exactly photographable, create posters and other graphics to help the client understand what you do.
With your description, you need to accomplish three things: make your case for you being the right freelancer, clearly outline what the client gets for their $5, and then assure them of their satisfaction. For the first part, focus on experience. For the second, use a clear and concise list. For the third, focus on things like a money-back guarantee and your history, either on Fiverr or on other sites.
If it applies to your gig, make it a tag. This makes your gig more searchable and therefore more likely to draw clients in. Don’t be afraid to be creative.
You don’t want to promise anything too quick, because you are likely to get yourself into a bind. At the same time, opt for too long and people working with deadlines will pass you by. 2-5 days is good for most gigs.
