If I am searching on it like it “SEO link building”.
You can see, there are more than 20 pages, and each page has around 50 gigs in it. So if you are failed to create a Fiverr gig properly, then you can not emerge the first page on it. And most of the clients go through only the first page of Fiverr.
At the end of the day, you got disappointed by not acquiring a single client for your service.
Fortunately, there is a way to rank your Fiverr gig on the first page.
Well, before creating a gig, have a look at the two images.
What do you think? Which one is more promising, more eye-catching and more trustable?
Who creates the first impression? Which image attracts you to click subconsciously?
Think a little bit what’s the difference between these images.
Are you stuck? Don’t worry!! I will discuss how to properly set up a gig over time.

Create a Gig(Step by Step)
So, here are the 5 easy steps you can follow for creating an amazing gig.
After signing up in Fiverr, you have an option on your screen “Create a new gig”.
Click on it, and you are in your overview section.
Title Section: write a short title focusing on your purpose to the point within 80 characters.
Make sure not to use ‘full stop’ at the end of your title. Also, no dollar sign, or any other sign. Only use letters and numbers.
Note: Don’t use ‘FREE’ or ‘Discount OFFER’ in the title. Fiverr may suspend your account.
Category: Select your Category. If you are a programmer, then select ‘Programming and Tech’. If you do SEO, then select ‘Digital Marketing’.
If not sure, search similar services in Fiverr marketplace to sure your category. Or click the possible categories, then you will find subcategories that you want to work on it.
Sub Category: As you select your category, they show you up all the subcategories under the selected category.
Others: Then select additional information in the overview section. Additional information can vary for different categories.
Tag: The most important part of your overview section is to define the appropriate tag you work on. Write your keyword related to your gig and they will show many options. Click one of them. Like this, add up to 5 tags.
Use the tag used by other gigs(at the bottom) that already on the first page in your subcategory.
Note: Don’t be stingy or lazy while doing this. Without a perfect tag, your gig won’t appear to your clients when they search with that terms.
After properly completing the overview section, it’s time to fix your price. If you are confused about your overview section, don’t worry. You can always go back and change it. But every time changing gig can cause your ranking drop. So, avoid editing so many times in the beginning, at least. Take your time, properly set it up then publish it.
Ok, now we are in the price section:
Here they show you a 3 packages pricing list by default in the upper right corner. You can change it if you want to provide only one package. A good practice is to keep 3 packages at the beginning for making proper decisions by your buyers.
In 3 packages, you have basic, standard, and premium options where you set your service according to prices. In basic, you provide less service with less charge, more work with more charge in standard package, and premium is likely to maximum work for maximum charge.
Watch the video appear in the right section for a better understanding.
Here is a sample pricing section after researching the same types of gigs.
Add your extra for urgent service.
- The standard package is so popular in Fiverr. Maximum time your standard package will be offered. So, do research by reaching out to other gigs in your industry how they offer, what’s their pricing style.
- List at least 15-20 top gigs for researching before you start to make your gig. Then you will have a clear idea about your service and pricing
- Don’t set the price too high at the beginning also, don’t set too low. Too high price move your buyers away from you and too low price confuses buyers about your potentiality. Best practice, research it, think it, and fix it.)
Write a Killer Description
Your gig image acts like the first impression where your description acts like your overall conversion point. Will you convert your visitors to your buyer or not, it depends on your description.
Unfortunately, above 80% of Fiverr sellers don’t know how to write a description. Early time, many sellers had copied other’s descriptions, but in 2020 it’s not possible as Fiverr’s guideline is so strict nowadays.
So, the million-dollar question is
How to write a Fiverr Gig Description that converts?
Well, not writing randomly like our intro, services, offers. We follow a super proven model called “AIDA” model.
AIDA model is such a powerful and systematic model that change the mindset of a stranger and converts him a buyer. It persuades visitors to build a relationship with your product or service.
The full form of AIDA is:
- A = Attention
- I = Interest
- D = Desire
- A = Action.
Build Attention: Tell about your previous work or about your business model.
Maintain Interest: How you are better than others.
Desire: How your gig solves their problems, how your workflow makes things easy for them. (Tell your services using bullet points)
Action: Tell them to take action now. Don’t hesitate or afraid to say, “Feel free to place an order.” Provide the right direction to them. Still, many people need a little push to go ahead. As you are good at your service, why won’t you try to ensure them?
Note: every gig description need not to maintain like that. You just ensure that is your gig capable of converting or not? If you think this sentence or this work experience will convert more, then you must write it. But make sure, grab attention at any cost by the first 1-2 sentences.
Here I will show you both the wrong and right practice of writing Fiverr gig description.
Here, carefully notice this image.
What’s the problem in this description? Think and find out.
Is it able to build AIDA? I don’t think so. Why visitors trust you? What’s the converting point you mention? Any experience, or work model, or why you better than others or what unique things you offer as well as how they get benefited from you? Are these mentioned?
Have a look at the bottom of the gig. This gig says
- If there are any problems with this gig, let me know. Does it make any sense? It seems the gig want someone to judge it and let it show the problem “Hey, this gig is such kind of issues.”
- Full discount if not satisfied. It somehow makes a doubt in visitor’s subconscious mind that is this gig really worth continuing or not.
- No call to action.
So, avoid writing this types of description.
Note: As a beginner, you can refund. But you should technically say it so that the stranger’s mind doesn’t create any doubt.
Well, now come to the point you are eagerly waiting for it to do.
Look at the Image.
Read the red boxed paragraph, which builds attention “My three years experience told this should not right approach to do what used to do for so long.”
Note: If you don’t have the experience, don’t worry. It doesn’t mean that you need to write like this. Analysis top gigs description and creates an idea.
“Yellow box captured the interest saying like this. “By using this groundbreaking approach, many of our clients were successful.”
Now, visitors are likely keen to know what the process and they want to go through further articles, and you know, you can now easily create desire by telling how you solve their problems by your services.
Now, it’s time to sell your service. Don’t hang them up. Push them to buy your service.
See another example:
Note: All things you need to write within 1200 characters. So, create an outline before writing. Otherwise, editing later will be painful, as well as the description may lose its appeal.
Provide an introduction about you to build trust. And clear them all the technical points you use, or they may not clear something about.
Note: Take your time. Don’t hurry. It’s a one-time investment that keeps you one step ahead of your competitors.
In this section, you need to ask for requirements from your clients that you need every time to before proceeding your job, write it.
You can ask for any pdf or text or multiple choice based on your service.
Create the Winning Impression
It’s the most important part of your gig. As you already know, first impression is the last impression, put your 100% focus and efforts to create your most important conversion point.
See below the image:
When a visitor comes for a service, a page looks like, appears on his/her screen.
So, what’s going on in your mind?
Which one do you pick? You may say the review is a factor. Yes, a review is a significant factor. But when everyone has reviews on the screen or not having any reviews on the screen then how a stranger click on a gig?
Speaking the truth, he doesn’t click, his subconscious mind does click on the gig that looks like so promising, eye-catching. So don’t leave a stone unturned to create a eye catching image.
How do you make the most engaging Fiverr Image?
Well, the first and last way is to research and compare different gigs within your niche(sub-category). Which one is looking attractive, more eye-catching. Why this gig is getting more offer where another gig is failed to attract clients.
Just research and find out.
Even though, for your help, here I am using 6 criteria.
- First One: Do not use so many texts in the gig image.
- Second One: Use your face. It builds trust and converts more. (In the first image he is not the right person. He is a male but uses a female’s image.
- Third One: Don’t use too much color in your images. It irritates buyers. Maximum 2-3 colors you can use. Also, pay attention to your color combination. It’s one of the most important things to consider.
- Fourth One: Do not use copyright images(if you do not have usages rights).
- Fifth One: Don’t steal other gigs images. You will be banned.
- Sixth One: Don’t use any Fiverr badge or FREE or Click here text in your images. Only write about your services.
Must have a look: Do’s and Don’ts(Gig Image)
Make sure before creating any images, videos, read about their guidelines. In Fiverr your image should less than 5 MB and dimension should be minimum 550*370 px. You can use 3 images at the very beginning. Later you can add more.
And thus, you have your first gig on Fiverr. So, time to publish it and do some marketing on social media for getting clients quickly. Also, send 10 buyer requests daily and respond quickly when anyone will respond to your request.
