4 Major Mistakes that I Committed on Fiverr


We all learn from our mistakes no matter what we do. On Fiverr, I also committed some mistakes. I would like you guys to take a look at them. So you don't do the same mistakes. Lets get started:

1) Expecting Success Overnight

When I joined Fiverr, I thought I would start getting orders right away after creating a gig. But I was totally wrong(Read my Fiverr Story Here). You need to promote your gigs and be proactive in order to get your first order. It is very unlikely that someone will come on his own and buy any of your gig. I mean who would have hired a New seller like me when they had other options of hiring Level 1, 2 and Top Rated Sellers.

2) Not using Attractive Images on my Gigs

There are so many gigs on Fiverr. Even hundreds of them get created everyday. So in order to win orders, you must know how to make your gig stand out of the crowd. And one way to do it is to use attractive images and write detailed descriptions.

3) Making Clients wait for Long

Often times I was too busy with the work that I could not take any more orders. So I asked the clients to wait for my message. I made them wait for like 24 hours and you know what? They just hired someone else without waiting for my message. They did the right thing. Because they are concerned only with their work and getting the job done. Why would they wait for my message anyway?

4) Taking Freelancing as a Piece Of Cake

Like many others, I also thought that earning online is like pulling money from the trees. But it is not like that at all. In fact, as a freelancer, you have to work way more as compare to working offline. The only perk of freelancing is that you don't have to leave your house early in the morning.

But I am so proud and glad that I learned from my mistakes and I am doing way better than I was doing a couple of years ago. You know what are most commonly asked questions about Fiverr? You can find it out along with their answers in the post given below.
