What is a Fiverr gig?
A “Gig” is a service you provide and sell on the Fiverr marketplace. Your Gig is an opportunity to show off your skills to potential clients and give them all of the information they might require before they make a purchase.
Because you’ll be conducting business with customers that you’ve never worked with before, the only way you can show experience is by your Gig page. That’s why creating a gig requires such attention to detail.
Creating a gig on Fiverr can only be done using a computer. The Fiverr mobile app doesn’t include functionality for creating gigs.
How to Make a Gig on Fiverr
Become a Seller
Before you start selling, you’ll need to build a seller profile.
Click on Become a Seller (or Start Selling if you are logged in) in the top Navigation of Fiverr. Sign up/Join if you have not yet registered with Fiverr.
Thousands of customers visit Fiverr every day to hire freelancers. According to Fiverr, on average, a Gig is purchased every 3 seconds. So, if you’ve never made money online before, Fiverr is always the simplest place to get started.
Fiverr’s commission rate is 20%, so every 5 dollars you make, Fiverr’s commission is $1, leaving you with $4 profit.
Setup your account
If you haven’t setup your Fiverr sellers account, start entering your Personal information. If you have a sellers account setup, skip to step #6.
Description (min 150 words)
Add your Professional Information
Add your Professional Information so you can start selling your services.
Include as much information as possible to help sell your services.
Link social media accounts to gain trust and build authority.
Verify your email and phone number to ensure you never lose access to your Fiverr account.
Create a new gig – Overview
Once your personal profile is setup. Start setting up your new gig!
Add your title, categories, and search tags. It is important you add relevant search tags so people find you.
The Gig Title: Your gig title is a one-line description of the service you wish to provide on Fiverr. It should be no more than 80 characters long. If you’re stumped for a name for your job, check out what other sellers have done. Make sure your gig title is unique.
Categories: Graphics&design, Digital Marketing, Writing & Translation, Video & Animation, Music & Audio, Programming & Tech, Business And, and Fun & Lifestyle are just a few of the numerous categories available on Fiverr.
Make sure you choose the proper category since it can’t be changed later.
After deciding on a category, you can select a sub-category that is most relevant to your service.
Search Tags: You can set up to five search tags in the Fiverr Gig. If you want your gig to appear higher in Google results, make sure the terms you use on Fiverr are included in your search tag.
Are you unsure about new gig ideas? Over three million Fiverr offers are currently available. You may get inspired by looking at the tasks of other merchants in your niche.
Scope & Pricing
Add your services and pricing. Try to be concise, this will help you earn more revenue.
You will be paid a fixed amount per gig, with the ability to set your rates as high as $995. You can also offer upgrade options to packages for the same job.
With the Standard and Premium packages unlocked, you may charge different prices for all of the same gigs depending on the extra services you want to provide.
Other choices may be accessible depending on your category and sub-category.
Add your services description. Write something compelling, informative, and salesy.
Your gig description is the second most important thing about your gig.
Many Fiverr new sellers write their gig descriptions hastily. This should not be the case with you; take time to craft the perfect description by including as many specifics as possible into your gig description, while avoiding grammatical and spelling errors.
Learn what you can from great or top sellers in your field by browsing their job descriptions. You must, however, avoid plagiarizing their gig descriptions word-for-word. If you do that, Fiverr may lower your gig ranking and make it less visible to visitors.
Fiverr limits your gig description to 1200 characters, you can also include a few Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) to answer issues or questions that buyers may have.
Add the requirements you will need form the client. After the order has been placed, its important that you don’t want to contact them for additional information. So Ask as many questions as you need to complete the gig. This will help to avoid future disputes.
Showcase your services with Video, Photos and/or Documents (PDFs). This is where you can optimize your brand for more sales.
Make sure you submit a high-quality media files to accompany your gig. If possible, I recommend using a video of yourself. If you have a gig video, buyers are more inclined to purchase from you.
Skill Test, Legal, and Publish
The last step, you might be asked to complete a skill test to prove you are an expert in your field. After you will need to complete legal information if you live outside of the US. Finally pressing publish.
This is the last stage in order to put your gig on Fiverr. Your gig becomes live and visible to purchasers who look for freelance employees in your field when you press the Publish Gig button.
Your Gig is now open for business!!! From here you can start earning money.
