Module 3: Creating A New Gig and Setting It Up For Most Earnings

I’m now going to enter how I create a gig that will likely be picked up within the searches. This part will likely be very basic. Once I go on to speak about what to promote on Fiverr within the subsequent chapter, I’ll go into element as to what to place precisely for every kind of gig I recommend. I’ll cowl precisely what

key phrases, titles, pictures, classes and extra. For now, let’s take a look at how I create a gig after which what my “secret sauce” is.

Let’s create a gig. On the prime proper of, you will note Begin Promoting or Gross sales, relying on whether or not you simply created your account or not. Beneath “My Gross sales” click on on “Create A Gig”.

Desk of Contents

Gig Title

The very first thing Fiverr will ask for is your gig title. Fiverr limits all gig titles to 80 characters max however doesn’t really create a gig utilizing the total 80 characters in your title. 

Probably the most characters it’s best to use are round 50 characters. The perfect gig title size is 16-50 characters. Why? Lengthy gig titles don’t rank as effectively in Fiverr’s searches as shorter titles do. However clearly, you don’t wish to pressure your gig title to be too quick both. 

Attempt to make your gig title so long as attainable till it’s at 50 characters. Utilizing as many key phrases as attainable within the title will assist or not it’s picked up in Fiverr searches. An instance of a great gig title:

I’ll get you 1000 actual wanting Twitter followers. This title comprises 3 key phrases that individuals continuously search: actual, Twitter, followers. Despite the fact that on this case the Twitter followers being

offered aren’t actual, this gig will nonetheless present in a search “actual Twitter followers”.


This is essential. Having your gig in the most effective class and sub-category attainable will imply extra clicks and conversions when customers are searching classes simply checking to see what sorts of gigs a class comprises. I’ll inform you which class precisely every type of gig I recommend must be in, within the subsequent chapter.

Probably the most in-demand classes on Fiverr, within the order of most, searched to least, on the time of penning this information are On-line Advertising, Graphics & Design, Promoting, Video & Animation and Writing & Translation.

Cowl Picture

This can be a particular part when making a gig that isn’t out there for many classes. You’ll be able to add a “Fb timeline-like” cowl photograph that turns into a full-page banner throughout the highest of your gig. 

What you add is dependent upon what you’re promoting. In case you’re promoting your self, say holding an indication or making a video testimonial, it’s best to add a photograph of your self displaying off your character. 

A big photograph of you standing in entrance of the Eiffel Tower or a photograph of you in the course of a meals struggle.

One thing like this makes your gigs extra personable and enjoyable. It offers your prospects consolation and a sense like they know you.

In case you’re promoting a factor, like graphics or jewelry, then the duvet photograph ought to clearly be of your product. Excessive-quality pictures are extremely advisable.

Put effort into it, don’t be lazy and do a Google Photos search. Both purchase a gig from somebody on Fiverr to make you an important wanting cowl photograph or make one your self in case you have the flexibility. 

All the time add a canopy photograph if you’re utilizing a class that enables cowl photograph uploads.

Check out the highest sellers on the entrance web page to see what their cowl pictures appear like. (A whole lot of Prime Rated Sellers are nonetheless not benefiting from this new characteristic, it’s best to!) Listed here are just a few examples of ones I like and it’s best to attempt to emulate:

You’ll be able to add a canopy photograph for the next gig classes: Enjoyable & Weird, Graphics & Design, Promoting, Life-style, Presents, and Video & Animation.

Gig Gallery

Right here you add pictures related to your gig. This isn’t as vital as you may assume. Within the “Secret Sauce” part of this chapter, I’ll inform you why the Gig Gallery just isn’t going to make or break your earnings. 

Crucial a part of creating your gig is the key sauce. However for now, let me break down the way to correctly use the gig gallery.

The gig gallery means that you can add JPEGs no greater than 5 MB. The advisable dimensions for these pictures are 682 x 459, I do know these are bizarre dimensions however that’s what Fiverr recommends and scales your pictures to.

Right here it’s best to solely use high-quality pictures. Both samples of your work, like in the event you’re promoting emblem designs, for instance, footage of your self in the event you’re going to be modelling an indication or doing video testimonials, or a picture created by you or another person which attractively shows the service you supply, like a splash picture promoting your backlinks service. You may both make that type of picture your self or once more, discover somebody on Fiverr to do it.

You don’t need it to be one thing made in paint or low-cost wanting. Your picture has to look incredible and dimensioned correctly. This helps with conversions. Right here’s a picture for website positioning companies that I feel is an efficient instance:

Gig Meta Knowledge

The brand new Gig Meta Knowledge permits patrons to outline their gigs way more particularly than earlier than.

Module 3: Creating A New Gig and Setting It Up For Maximum Earnings

Above is an instance of Gig Meta Knowledge for a gig created beneath VIDEO & ANIMATION > TESTIMONIALS & REVIEWS BY ACTORS.

There are a number of choices to select from. Most metadata sections solely help you select one possibility. If you wish to select a couple of possibility, I’d recommend creating separate gigs for every possibility. 

In case you really feel the necessity to choose a number of choices, which may inform you that you just’re higher off creating completely different gigs for every possibility. Not solely will that help you rank higher for searches, however it is going to additionally offer you extra alternatives to be discovered by patrons. Extra gigs, extra alternatives to be discovered.

Gig Video – The Secret Sauce (Half 1) 

Okay, so right here’s the large secret sauce and the principle factor that may assist get you extra gross sales than you at the moment are. You have to add a video for all of your gigs. Interval. Fiverr just isn’t mendacity once they say gigs promote higher once they have a video. Your gig will seem greater in searches.

I do know what you’re pondering… “That’s the key sauce? That’s it?” Nicely, there’s really slightly extra to it. There’s additionally a secret ingredient to it.

You’d be shocked as to what number of sellers don’t add a video for his or her gigs. Even the efficiently promoting gigs would do twice as a lot in gross sales if they simply had a video.

The largest factor I discovered experimenting with Fiverr, and that I by no means see anybody ever recommend, is one thing so easy. You want a video for all of your gigs. And sure, it doesn’t even matter what you’re promoting, it’s best to create and add a video on your gigs.

In case you’re not camera-shy, I like to recommend you file your self. You should use a digital digital camera or perhaps a webcam/digital camera cellphone if the standard is first rate sufficient. 

You should use a free video enhancing software program like Home windows Film Maker or one thing like Camtasia to edit the video if wanted so as to add some background music or graphics. Once more, you possibly can pay somebody on Fiverr to edit your video in case you have no expertise with this.

Sit in entrance of the digital camera, beneath some good lighting, and browse off of a script. Hold it quick and easy. Say it such as you’re speaking to a pal.

Don’t be shy and provides it just a few takes. Right here’s a pattern script in the event you had been to promote Twitter followers:

“Hey, I’m Gianluca! Do you want Twitter followers? I can get you over 1000 high-quality Twitter followers for under 5 bucks, completely right here on Fiverr! My companies are quick and secure! Strive me out! You guys gained’t be disenchanted! Thanks!”

On the video itself, I’d place slightly Twitter graphic so individuals can see the Twitter emblem within the video thumbnail. Within the video itself, I’d put some cool, royalty-free music (search YouTube for “royalty-free music” and obtain it).

You might want to watch out although. Recently, Fiverr have been very strict in the case of moderating and deciding what movies are allowed on gigs.

The 2 greatest issues, it appears, is you could state your gig is “completely on Fiverr” and you could have good audio and video high quality. Any movies that are out of sync or have poor lighting will likely be rejected. It’s additionally good observe to introduce your self, one thing like “Hello, my identify is”/.

For some purpose although, these guidelines should not proven on their web site and you’ll undergo a number of rejections with out purpose except you already know what they’re. Listed here are their guidelines:

  • Video period should be over 10 seconds and as much as 30 seconds.
  • Use solely unique movies made by you.
  • Add a video of your self presenting your personal gig. You could embrace samples of your work, enhancing results and many others. so long as the presentation stays private and made by you
  • Point out that your gig is obtainable completely on
  • Don’t use the identical video for a couple of gig
  • Your video should be of affordable high quality, your voice needs to be clear and simple to grasp
  • Promotion of third get together companies, web sites or manufacturers (in writing or narration) or offering a direct technique of communication is not going to be allowed
  • Providing a service for any value aside from $5 just isn’t allowed
  • Ensure that your video and gig adhere to our Phrases of Service.
  • Movies associated to self-improvement, getting wealthy strategies, black hat advertising and marketing and related should not permitted at the moment.

We will likely be breaking the “Use solely unique movies made by you rule” later. Don’t fear, do it proper and Fiverr won’t be able to inform.

Try a number of the movies of gigs on the primary web page for extra concepts. You don’t need to appear like a mannequin for this that will help you get extra gross sales.

(Nicely, slightly bit extra on that later) This helps because it ranks you higher in searches (quite a bit higher), locations you greater in class pages, it makes your gigs seem extra reliable (you’re placing your self in entrance of a digital camera in spite of everything) and it offers your gigs character (I’m going to purchase Twitter followers from the man with the cool voice and moustache!)

One other factor to contemplate is that Fiverr loves gigs with movies like this. They eat it up. Why do you have to care? In case your gigs have character and movies like this, they’ve a significantly better likelihood of displaying up on the entrance web page and being featured or, higher but, make you a Prime Rated Vendor.

If this doesn’t click on with you, you’ll simply need to belief me on this. The tradition and setting on Fiverr isn’t just some faceless market.

The entire thought is you’re paying an actual individual for a small service or product. Somebody with an image, biography, character and video of themselves. In case you hold your profile and gigs faceless, you can be buried beneath 1000’s of different faceless gigs. 

In case you haven’t tried this but, do it and I assure you will note an enormous distinction in your gross sales. Which gig are you extra more likely to click on on for the very same service?

Module 3: Creating A New Gig and Setting It Up For Maximum Earnings

In case you’re too digital camera shy, there’s a second possibility. It’s not pretty much as good, however it is going to assist since you should have a minimum of a video on all of your gigs. You may add an animated video that describes your gig. 

You may both rent somebody on Fiverr or use a web site like or VideoScribe which helps you to make animated movies with zero animating abilities or information.

There’s one other ingredient to this although. A secret ingredient to this secret sauce to assist your gigs promote much more. It’s slightly shallow, and it just about depends on the previous adage “intercourse sells”. As a substitute of utilizing your self in your video or creating an animated video, you’re going to rent a lovely younger girl (or younger man) to be a spokesperson on your gigs.

In case you are a beautiful and charismatic individual, you’ll save your self money and time by simply utilizing your self in your movies. In case you don’t assume you’re, rent somebody (though, you don’t should be a mannequin or celebrity to easily make a video of your self speaking about your gig!). 

There are completely different locations you possibly can go to rent an actress or actor (I desire an actress) to be a spokesperson on your gig. The primary means is the plain one: rent an individual on Fiverr. 

That is dangerous although, Fiverr will ultimately see that the video just isn’t of you and take the video down. So one of the best ways is to rent somebody outdoors of Fiverr, the place they gained’t be capable of hyperlink it or determine it out, that is what I did. 

You may submit a labeled on Craigslist or Kijiji, or submit an advert in a Fb group that’s for fashions on the lookout for work. The title of your advert must be one thing like “In search of an actress to be the spokesperson for my service, make me 30-second video from residence”.

You’ll often need to pay round $20 for every video, it’s not as low-cost as Fiverr however you’ll make that cash again. Within the physique of the advert, you should definitely state “no earlier appearing expertise required, pattern video most popular, should a minimum of present a photograph.” 

If you rent somebody, give them a script within the first individual. One thing like:

“Hello, I’m Shelly, [give them the option to use their own name or a fake name] I’m right here to design you a emblem on your small enterprise or web site for under 5 bucks completely right here on Fiverr! Check out my portfolio for some samples of my work on my gig web page under. I’m quick and assure a high-quality emblem!”

This fashion, it is going to seem as if you’re that woman promoting your gigs on Fiverr. The extra engaging and charming the actor/actress is, the higher the end result. From my expertise, I’ve discovered the gigs I’ve had with a beautiful actress have at all times introduced me essentially the most gig orders.

On my very first Fiverr account, I had about 1-3 orders a day, if that, for my first few months. I made a decision to alter issues up and I discovered a beautiful actress to do 6 movies for six of my gigs. 

After importing these movies to my gigs, not solely did I discover I used to be getting extra orders however I used to be additionally getting extra web page views. It appeared like Fiverr was inserting my gigs greater on class pages.


Clearly, that is depending on what you’re promoting. So, within the subsequent chapter, I’ll inform you what description to place for every gig I recommend.

Nonetheless, on the whole, you wish to stuff as many key phrases as attainable in your descriptions. Fiverr is not going to help you publish your gig if it comprises too many cases of a key phrase, so simply put as many as Fiverr will enable. Often, it’s 3 cases.

You additionally solely have 1200 characters to work with. Whereas which will seem to be quite a bit, I usually prefer to have a FAQ in my descriptions after I describe the gig. 

Belief me, once you get 30-40 orders a day, you gained’t wish to cope with the identical questions again and again in addition to the identical errors individuals make when ordering your gig, resembling assuming you do one thing you don’t.

The primary a part of your description must be straight to the purpose. It’s mainly you taking the title of your gig, however placing the full-length model of your title you couldn’t match within the title due to the character restrict. 

A superb place to begin in the event you promote Twitter followers could be one thing like: “1000 high-quality Twitter followers quick to any profile. No account entry required, all real-looking and 100% secure”.

I like to recommend bolding this and even highlighting it. The following part may very well be bullet factors, breaking down all of the options of your gig, or precisely every little thing they get for $5.

Lastly, strive to slot in a FAQ in the event you can. I prefer to put disclaimers right here and reply frequent questions I get.


These are crucial in order for you your gig to be picked up in searches. You’re solely allowed a most of 5 key phrases right here so make them good. You’re additionally solely allowed to make use of a key phrase as soon as. 

So if I take advantage of “Twitter” I can’t additionally put “Twitter followers”. So which do you employ? Put the key phrases individuals are looking for. Fiverr customers should not actually looking “Twitter”, they’re utilizing “Twitter followers” so use that as a key phrase as an alternative of simply “Twitter”.

What I love to do is put related key phrases right here so I’m picked up in searches the place customers will not be precisely on the lookout for my service, however once they see it, they assume “Oh, I might use that too” or “Let me examine this out”.

Utilizing the Twitter followers instance once more, I’ll clearly use the key phrases “Twitter followers, actual, quick” however I’ll additionally throw in “retweets” and “favourites” despite the fact that my gig is simply promoting followers. This fashion, I’ll be picked up in searches the place customers are in search of retweets and favourites.

They’re nonetheless more likely to view my gig since they might probably need followers too. I’ll assist you additional with this idea within the subsequent chapter however you will want to assume outdoors the field.


Some gigs classes enable for Gig Packages. This lets you cost greater than $5 on your gigs. This was launched as a brand new promoting characteristic in late 2015. Fiverr plans to roll out Gig Packages to all classes. To study extra about it, go to their weblog.

Supply Time

The supply time of your gig is solely depending on just a few issues. You probably have a provider or are outsourcing one thing, check your provider first earlier than making a gig. See how lengthy it takes them to ship on common. 

I am going into this a bit in my subsequent chapter however that’s one method to decide period so your orders don’t find yourself being late.

In case you’re promoting video testimonials or pictures of your self holding an indication, put 1 day within the very starting, particularly in the event you’re not even a stage 1 vendor. It will require work to start with, however when you get a minimum of 10 orders and optimistic critiques, you possibly can at all times change this to 2 or 3 days and have an Specific gig further the place you’ll ship this in 1 day. 

I am going into having a 1-day gig period in a future chapter and the way this might help skyrocket your gross sales when you will have a brand new gig or account. Even when your gig is working late, Fiverr permits you a further 24 hours to ship the gig earlier than the vendor is ready to cancel. 

So, you technically have 2 days to ship a gig even once you set it to 1 day. In case you’re working actually late, at all times notify your purchaser or ask your purchaser to “please not cancel the order”. 

That is key. In case you’ve already outsourced the gig and paid another person and your purchaser cancels, you’ll lose that cash. On prime of that, adverse suggestions is left every time a purchaser cancels a late order! So watch out.


In case you don’t have this half arrange proper, count on to get a number of orders that may find yourself being a headache. The important thing right here is to ask for each single factor you want, irrespective of how apparent you assume it’s. 

You’d be shocked, individuals will order a gig like Twitter followers after which assume you’re a psychic and simply know what their Twitter account is. So, don’t go away something out.

Right here’s a great template to begin from:

“HEY! Thanks for your enterprise 🙂

Please present me with ___________Also


Please no requests after ordering. Every thing I present is as per my gig description!

In case you like_______you ought to try my different gig”

Your “Directions to patrons” additionally help you cross-promote different gigs of yours. I am going into this intimately in chapter 5.

Due to the character limits, don’t be afraid to click on “Add one other requirement” for every Gig further you supply if obligatory. Fiverr means that you can have a number of completely different directions for patrons. This lets you have non-compulsory directions for patrons in the event that they order any of your Gig extras.
