How To Get Your First Order on Fiverr

Don’t think you have a skill or niche? You’d be surprised how many skills you possess from your past work and experiences. I will explain more about this below.

1. Select Your Niche

2. Play to Your Strengths

If you’re unsure what you’d most succeed with, don’t be afraid to try a few different categories. Ultimately, try to let your interests help you decide where to start. 

3. Skill Up

Do you need some more knowledge to offer the gig you prefer? If so, you can also get a certificate in your area of competence. 

4. Identify Your Target Audience

Identifying your target audience will make it easier (and more straightforward) for you to find potential buyers for your service. It will also help you tailor your services to meet the needs of a specific segment of the market.

5. Sell for Reviews, Not Money

High-quality reviews are essential for being successful on Fiverr. Reviews push you to the top of the search results and expose you to more buyers.

6. Sell Benefits, Not Services

When describing your gig, it should be positioned in a way that showcases all of the benefits a potential buyer could gain. Consider offering additional services and benefits as a package that buyers will love. 

7. Exhibit Your Previous Work To Potential Buyers

If you have experience in specific work related to your gig, you can include links to it in your description. It helps buyers gauge your ability. It is a great reference point to which they can decide to buy services from you, especially if you are new to freelancing.
