If you have an extra 10 minutes in your day because a meeting got canceled, you're stuck in traffic, or a friend is running late, what do you do to pass the time? You could spend it scrolling through your social media feeds or watching cat videos on YouTube. Or you could take a few small steps to vastly improve your Fiverr Gig so that you boost your business and your bottom line.
6 Improvements to Make a Difference in Minutes
Update your Title.
You have to be able to quickly convey why someone should work with you, so that you draw them in instead of turning them away. Write a short and sweet Gig title that explains a single service that buyers will get when they work with you. Make sure to include what you offer and the purpose. If you are a package designer, a good Gig title would be: "I will design eye-catching product packaging for your business." If you're a person of many talents, you can make multiple Gig pages. It's best to have one service per Gig so that a potential buyer isn't confused about what they would get.
Anatomy of the perfect title:
The "What": Speed up
The "Who": Wordpress site
The "How":Wordpress optimization
Title Key Takeaways:
Focused on doing ONE thing well
Eliminates the “Discovery” phase
Offers predictable results
Fulfillment process optimized for the best delivery
You don't have much space to entice people when they're scrolling through the various Fiverr Sellers – you only have your Gig title, your price, a rating, and your main Gig image or video. The latter is what takes up the most space, so it's crucial that it's engaging. You'll get more clients if you use a high-quality photograph or explainer video as your main image, as well as more in your Gig. First impressions are essential, so it can be beneficial to work with a photographer and videographer who can make your images and videos look professional and polished.
Show why potential buyers should choose you by providing a robust portfolio of your past work. If you design 3D models and products, your work is very visual and it will be helpful to include photos of models you've created, final products, and videos. But if you have a less visual service like writing press releases, you can – and should – still make a portfolio. In this case, you could include screenshots of website copy you've written and testimonials from grateful clients.
Your Gig tags will make your Gig more visible when people search for your specialty. Think of them as keywords and make sure the tags you use describe your Gig in detail. You can choose two or three keywords for a single tag and up to five tags. If you are a social media marketer, for example, you could use tags like social media marketer, social media, social media content, social media management, social media marketing, content marketing, social media strategy, content strategy, or social media ads.
People are bound to have questions about your services, so don't leave them guessing. Use the FAQs section of your Gig page to answer common questions buyers might be wondering before they click "Continue." If you're a music producer and composer, for instance, FAQs might include whether clients will own the rights to all the music you compose, the gear and programs you use, whether you use original musicians or a track, and whether the client could choose the musicians.

Just like guacamole costs extra, your additional services could cost more too. Provide recommended upgraded services in the Gig extras section of your Gig. If you're an SEO expert for instance, your extras could include:
