Making money from fiverr is not as easy as it seems. It is not sufficient for you to just create an account and a gig and start having buyers. Like any other trade involve in buying and selling, you need to advertise, trade quality products to keep your costumers secured and encourage them to come for your services. Due to the congestion on fiverr, it is very difficult for you to beat others by doing just the normal process. You need to go beyond impression to attract buyers especially if you are a new seller because buyers will prefer high level sellers. Take note of the following points if you want to boost sales on fiverr.

Upload a profile picture

If you ever thought a profile picture is not very necessary on fiverr, then you got it wrong. Some people just upload frames and not actually a picture of themselves which will actually scare a lot of buyers away. Just reason this with me, Will you trust someone who fakes his/her image or who is not confident enough to show his or her image? I guess the answer is no. So make sure you always upload your profile picture when creating your account.

Write an impressing gig description

In order for you to write an impressing gig description, you have to be able to know your gig properly. Let your buyers feel your expertise in your gig description field. Also add keywords, samples and videos when writing your gigs because they keep your buyers confident and assured.

 Avoid negative reviews

Make sure to always have positive reviews especially from your first delivery. Your reviews will determine your buyers. If you pile negative reviews, you will not only lose your buyers but your selling level will also drop.  Am not sure you yourself will go to buy from a buyer where it is written that he or she does not satisfy clients. Its same with buyers on fiverr, the least negative comment will kill their spirit from buying from you.

Update page and view sales analysis regularly

Another easy way for your gig to appear most to buyers when research is by making sure that you update your fiverr page. Just open your fivver app and drag down from the top as many times as possible. By so doing, also keep viewing your profile analysis as much time as possible.

Reply fast and deliver on time

Replying fast and delivering on time will not only earn you good reviews but will also make fiverr to boost your gig and equally share your gigs on social media. This is because, by so doing you also boost your gig and fiverr also does same perhaps as a compensation for advertising their app.

If you follow the steps above, you will be able to boost your sales on fiverr.  You have to keep in mind that you have to be patient because fiverr might take time in yielding especially for your first demand. Stay professional, impressing and also advertise and you will be able to boost your sales.
