Successful Freelancing With Fiverr | The First Sale/Inquiry - 104

Considering my last three blog posts, I sincerely hope by now you'd have landed your first client on Fiverr. If yes, hearty congratulations to you. If not, I am always here to help you out. In today's blog, we'll talk about your final move to land your first client. Irrespective of whether you have or have not made a client yet, this post is relevant. Unlike the previous ones, this one is going to be short. Read on.

Be Active
Here's a simple yet very important tip that no one will tell you. Be active on Fiverr. The more you are active the more are your chances of making clients. When I say 'active', I mean log onto the website spend some time. Check out gigs from other people, popular gigs, how people write their gig descriptions, how Fiverr works etc. Doing this will serve two purposes; you will get the hang of the layout as well as become an active member of Fiverr. 



Now, since you are an active member, Fiverr will eventually reward you by increasing your gig impressions. Which is amazing because more the impressions, more clicks you will get and more clicks you get, more sales you will make.

Note: The number of times your gig shows up when someone searches for your niche/category are called impressions.

Improve your profile description
Apart from gig descriptions, there is a column for self-description on your profile page. When starting out, your self-description becomes absolutely important because you still have no reviews from your clients. A potential client will go through it to find out more information about you. Your background, your expertise, your skills, your attitude and anything else that might help him/her make a buying decision. Based on my personal experience here's what you should do to improve your profile description.

- List your past experience. (Eg.: I am a professional freelance writer for the last six years.)
- List the benefits of working with you. (Eg.: I have helped various companies make sales in huge numbers with my benefit oriented writing.)
- List your expertise and niche. (Eg.: I specialize in content writing, blog writing and advertising copywriting.)
- Make it sound friendly. (Eg.: Let me know how can I help you.)



Respond promptly
Buyers usually tend to drop in a message before buying. The message is to inquire about your service and clarify details which may or may not be clear from the gig. As soon as you see a buyer inquiry, respond to it immediately. This creates an impression that you are prompt and take your work seriously. One good way to keep up to date with your Fiverr activity is to download Fiverr app on your phone/tablet and switch on the notifications. This way, whenever there is an inquiry, you will be notified. Remember, your response rate is very important.



The tips and techniques I've taught you since my first blog post are pretty much fail proof. If you follow my instructions carefully, you cannot go wrong.  It is my guarantee that you will have a client very soon if you haven't had already. Once that happens, you won't even realize when did you get yourself in a flurry of sales and offers. It will be a landslide. Believe me.


In my next blog post, I will talk about promoting your gigs to increase traffic. Hence, more sales. Until then, do take care.

How to lead a wealthy life through blogging?

Regular 9 to 5 jobs can be absolutely hectic. And did I mention boring? Yes, they can be. Picture yourself working your butt off morning to evening with no respite and a meagre income. All for what? For someone else who is making the money? I feel ya. I’ve been there. While I used to like my job, I can’t really say that I was satisfied with it. If you find yourself in the same place, then I can tell you there are better alternatives for you. No, I’m not asking you to quit your job. I’m not even asking you to take a break and experiment other avenues.
All you need to do is invest some time. Take out some time, say a couple of hours during the weekends, from your regular schedule and find an interest. Can you do that? Yes? Great! Then in a few months’ time, you’ll be swimming in cash without putting too many efforts. And the best thing is that, in the process, you’ll find your passion. Something you’ll look forward to going to day in and day out. But of course, you must put in a little, …

Business Acumen: The Secret To Successful Freelancing

Hold on! I thought we were going to discuss freelancing. Where the heck did 'business' come from? Is that what you are thinking? Well, let me explain.

Business and Freelancing, despite being worlds apart, have a lot in common. The only difference being, when you operate as a business you operate as a company while when you operate as a freelancer you operate as an individual. Freelancing can be categorized as one type of business but not the other way round. In a way, Freelancing is a subset of Business. Business is the superset of Freelancing.

Now that it's clear why I am talking about 'business', let me explain what is acumen. For those who don't know, it is the ability to make good judgments and take quick decisions. A business acumen, hence, means a good understanding and quick decision making ability in business.

Most people believe that business acumen is inborn. It is believed that business talent is usually passed on over generations and one can be a g…
