    You either offer something completely new or spend days and nights to advertise your gigs, it's not like you make a gig and you get clients. There are way too many people on fiverr and is possibly one of the most competitive areas in the internet

    I am Level 2 seller on Fiverr and making good income. This is not the first case i have heard. To get the sales on fiverr you need to be creative especially in that case where you just sarting selling on fiverr.
    You might have got some good impressions and click on your gig. but the big issue is no one want to pay you for what you are selling. Means problem is with your gig demand or what you are offering.
    You can judge it my your self, not a big work i think.

    some tips that may help you:

    1)Offer big discount for first 4 5 gigs.
    2)Title and tags should contain keywords.
    3) Just browse the fiverr to see is their is any demand of the stuff like that you are selling.
    4) make your description language attractive.
    5) use the eye catching photo.
    6) try to advertise you gig on you tube and social media in hungry crowd.
    7) Edit your gig after 2 3 days with different keywords. (called experiment) stop it when you starts to get sale.

    8) and most important, depend on my personal experiance. suspend all gig excepting one. update that gig and wait for 2 3 days. for you you will get sale.
    i hope this will little help you.

      Yes definitely! Spread your services on as many job platforms as you can. Another thing, it seems to me as you you don't really have any marketing experience and skills whatsoever, and that's an important part, even on Feverr.

    I think beside the Fiverr, You should try on the Odesk, Elance, Freelancer or something like these. They are more good than the Fiverr. Because the Fiverr charge 20% on the other hand these sites charge is 10%.

      This is very true cause there are other service providers platform that you can utilize and make good profit depending on your service then again I suggest you try other niches cause like my fellow warrior said what you are offering might not be in high demand.

      Hope that helps.

        Check out your gig traffic stats. The info is pretty basic but will at least show you if people are actually seeing your gig and also how many people are clicking to your gigs sales page. If you are getting people to see your gig on the fiverr page but not clicking to see your sales page, then you have a bad headline/gig title and picture or video. If people are going to your sales page and you are not converting anyone, then your sales page is bad.

        Do you have any feedback/reviews at all. You need at least 10 5 star reviews for a gig in order to start being successful.

          I'd take it as a simple lesson, move on , review fiverr to see what sells, then sell it yourself.

      Yes you are missing something and that is google translator will convert just on the basis of the prewritten grammar. I am native Hindi and Nepali speaker. So, I will do the job error free and with the sense.

    I have this issue as well. I was lucky enough to get a long-term client the first day after putting my gig up, but other than that I haven't had anyone interested. I have lots of impressions and a few clicks, but no buys. Even with two verified purchases and positive reviews from my client, no one wants to take the risk. Part of that is my fault, though. I need to make a video for the gig and create a better image for people to take me seriously.

    I agree those are not high demand gigs on fiverr, meaning that there's not many people searching for those solutions.

    Also, keep in mind, like in any biz strategy it takes time to build up a happy customer base in order to raise your profile/rating.

    You must offer a service that gives more than your competitors, if your competitors offer 400 words of translate, you should offer 800 words + discount + gift etc. This is the way to start and get your first clients. Once your services get more ratings and ranking on fiverr, you would receive a lot of orders and returning clients.

      I fully agree with the statement from Alex.
      Especially in the beginning. As i started on Fiverr with translations, i offered to translate 600 words from english into german (since i do everything by hand, because google isn't really good in translating to german, thats a very bad hourly rate), but as i had a couple of orders, and the reviews came in, i lowered the amount of words per Gig, and the people are still buying it. Now i translated whole ebooks for others, and make a nice side income from it.
      Selling ebooks on fiverr is a little bit more tricky i think, since there are many people, who sell these books. One thing, what you can test is: Use the "How To" method, where you call your gig something like: I show you how to ...

    Translators should only translate to their native language. I see you are offering translation from Hindi into English. No offense but your English isn't good enough to do that. Same thing for your English article writing gigs.

    First impressions are last impressions!

    Have a look and see why people are buying gigs from other people that are doing similar Gigs to you.

    People think this is a quick get rich scheme.

    Learn to crawl - Setup professional... get a video done, get some graphic content done... make it look professional.

    Learn to walk - Put in special offers... loyalty scheme, first gig free for 1st ten people, get your ratings up and do quality work.

    Learn to jog - rinse and repeat on Fiverr

    Learn to run - now go to Odesk rinse and repeat!

    Run at a pace that you can handle... otherwise you will do more damage than good!

    What you put into your business is what you will get out... the hard part is getting the business up and running, this will take time... but persist, be professional and you will get there!

    Good luck in your venture!

    Your Ad Copy ( Gig Offer ) plays a big role in converting.

    > You should, offer a money back guarantee.
    > Be as descriptive as possible.
    > Use Images/Videos related to your product.
    > Respond as quickly as you can
    > Use the Fiverr forum to promote yourself and knowledge.
    > Be realistic - are people actually looking for your service?
    Do you have competition? What is your competition doing? Do they have sales?
    If they have sales pretend like you are a potential customer message them and ask them about there gig. Was it a superb experience? Do you offer similar quality service, or does it go above that?

      I buy Fiverr gigs every day, even some of those you are offering! Also, I buy a lot from Fiverr newbies but I am very picky who I choose because I am placing orders for my clients.

      The advice you have already received here is good. Enormous over delivery for your first 20 to 30 gigs, You need a rock solid sales page and bio.

      Lose the Google Translate banner. I would NEVER use anybody for a translation gig if I even thought they might use Google Translate.

      If you want to know more about what I look for read my blog post.

    Well I think you need to focus on the Fiverr mindset.
    So you cannot sell what you believe that will sell, YOU need to sell what Fiverr buyers want to buy like maniacs!


    So you should waste some time to understand what are the best gig as I am writing this post, then you donĀ“t need to invent the wheel. Basically you will need recreate one of those gigs with some personal tweaks so your gig looks unique but at the same time will have similarities with the winner GIG.


    I did that last year and was getting nearly $2.5k per month after the 20% Fiverr commission so you can make real money!


    Another thing you need to understand is to handle your Profile as a Business brand, you should have your sales letter in your profile description, you need to make videos for each gig, you need to make FAQs about each of your gigs either in the GIG description or make a simple video about it, create a specific channel for your GIGs business and so on...


    About your gig, Delete it and move ON!

    I think your skill is not important to clients/ buyer. To get more & more works you should do Back link, lead generation. Graphics design, Web design & development or, something like these.

    Try to follow these techniques

    1. Make Your Gigs Unique

    There are probably 1000 gigs on Fiverr that offer to translate a page of text to English, or offering English lessons via Skype. A large majority of these sellers are probably offering 2 or 3 more zero-skill gigs, but what is most significant is that these sellers are making no money. If you want to make money on Fiverr, you must think about things that are unique to you. Think about something that you are truly good at, something that is unique to you, and apply that thing to your gigs.

    2. Make Your Gigs Professional

    In order to make money on Fiverr, you need to create a reputation for yourself. If anybody looks at your Gig's page and sees a negative review, they WILL NOT make a purchase. For this reason, you need to treat every customer professionally and make sure that they are happy. In addition to this, you need to make sure that you use proper spelling and grammar in your posts. A misspelled word is a red flag that buyers will avoid.

    3. Add video


    The easiest thing to do in order to attract people to your Gigs is to add video! Even if people are not interested in purchasing your Gig, they may be interested in watching a video of whatever you do. It does not matter what your Gig is or if you do not have good video equipment, just make a video explaining what your Gig does with some examples of your work. If you are selling yourself in your Gig, make sure that you sell yourself in your video.

    4. Display your work!

    It is very hard for a buyer to justify a purchase when they are not sure what they are purchasing. Work hard on some examples and display them, along with any work you do for buyers. If your work is good and you display it, your Gig will get bought.

    Remember, that no matter how many of these tips you follow, you must have a quality Gig in order to make money on Fiverr. If you want to do well, you must practice and perfect your Gig!
