The new Fiverr optimizes the visual experience by allowing sellers to include more images, including a cover, that can drive potential buyers into your page. Think about what your virtual window should look like. Do you have a cover image ready?

- Gig Title – Your Gig title can be up to 80 characters. Make sure your title is short, clear and to the point.
- Gig Description – You have 1200 characters (not words) to provide potential buyers a compelling description of your product or services. HTML formatting is acceptable. Be as descriptive as possible so buyers will know exactly what to expect. Be sure to classify your Gig with tags.
- Editing Gigs – All you have to do is go to “My Gigs”, Go to the Gig you want to edit, click the settings icon and select edit. There you can make any changes you want to your Gig content.
