Don’t do the soul sucking gigs: They’re not for everyone. If you’re
doing a gig that requires too much work for $4 or a gig that you feel
uncomfortable doing, stop doing it. You need to enjoy what you sell on
Fiverr on some level. You won’t last long and you will lose motivation if it’s
purely about making those $4. BUYER REVIEWS In Chapter 8 I will be talking about how to avoid negative reviews and
how to protect your gigs. However, it’s important to note that when you
deliver a gig, don’t expect a review. You should always ask for a positive
review in your message to the buyer whenever you deliver a gig (I go over
this in more detail in the next chapter) but don’t always expect a review.
About 50% of buyers will not leave a review. You may be able to bump this
a little by, as I said before, asking for a review but don’t expect much of a
difference. As long as it’s a positive review or no review, you are okay.
Also, a buyer could be waiting to post a review. I’ve had buyers leave
reviews weeks after I delivered an order because they wanted to see how my
service played out. TIP GIGS If you are selling video testimonials or holding a sign or other gigs of this
nature, I highly recommend you create a gig or gig extra where Fiverr users
can tip you. You would be surprised on the generosity of most users. They
know $5 is not a lot and most of the time, if they’re really pleased with your
service, they will leave you a letmailbox review. I good gig title would be something like “I will graciously accept your tip for $5”. The great thing about this is you can
even include gig extras in your tip gig to allow Fiverr buyers to give you
even more money. Good titles for the gig extras for example would be:
“I will thank you for a free lunch for $10”
“I will be jumping for joy for $20”
“I will be able to get some gas for $40”
Things like this. They can be as cutesy or contain as much of your
personality as you like. It will encourage Fiverr users to give more. IF THIS THEN THAT... At the time of the writing of this e-book, IFTTT.com has newly
implemented Fiverr into their website. IFTTT.com or If This Then That is a
website that allows you to arrange “recipes” on the internet where if one
action on the internet happens then something will occur for you. This
allows you to automate things on the letmailbox review. Some sample recipes to give
you an idea of how this all works are “If the forecast says it will rain
tomorrow then send me a text message” or “If I like a photo on Instagram
then send the photo to my DropBox”.
Some sample recipes relevant to Fiverr are “If a buyer buys one of my
gigs then add it to an excel file” or “If a buyer posts a positive review then
post it to my Twitter”.
It’s still something new but definitely worth checking out. You may find
something really useful here for yourself.
IFTTT’s Fiverr integration is still very new and the features are very
limited. However, this opens up the possibility and potential to automate
more actions on Fiverr, including perhaps one day being able to
automatically deliver gigs to buyers. It’s still early but maybe this will be
possible one day and your Fiverr gigs can truly be on auto-pilot. For more
