Creating Gig is one of the extremely important parts that in this Fiverr Gig Tutorial article I want to mention. Make gig creation easy and convenient. You need to prepare a few things before creating a gig. Listed below:
- Prepare yourself a title for the gig. For this job, I think nothing is more helpful than this article on how to best optimize your gig title . Please refer to this article and choose for yourself a gig title that is suitable and best.
- You need to prepare the images, videos or PDF files of the finished product. Or short videos, aim to upload it on your gig to grab the attention of your customers. Details of this section. I will say it right away with the content #fill in the necessary information of the gig
- Because currently Fiverr supports us with two types of Pricing (price list) when creating gigs. So you need to determine which one you should choose for your gig. There are two types which are one pack and three pack. What are the pros and cons. You can take a look at the comparison between 1 package and 3 packages to better understand.
Note when creating Gig to not be rejected
Before going into the main content in the guide to creating gigs on Fiverr. A few notes before creating a gig to avoid being rejected by Fiverr when posting your gig.
- For the product images you post to the gig. Do not take from others or in any other place to post. This will risk getting your gig rejected.
- In the description of the gig, do not include any links. Because the exchange of links and entice customers from Fiverr to work outside. Is violating their terms.
- Should accurately describe your service. Describe what you can do. Don’t show off until the customer with the same request as the gig you say can’t be done. This can very easily lead to order cancellations, affecting other metrics for your fiverr account.
- Should leave a line to contact me if you need any help. Or need to discuss in more detail the work you need. The purpose of this is to encourage customers to contact you if they have any other work in your field. But that’s beyond what your gig offers.
Instructions to create Gig on Fiverr
Once you’re all set, let’s get started with the Fiverr gig creation guide. Here’s a guide I’ve broken down into four steps. So that you can easily follow and apply successfully.
Choose the type of Gig to post your services for sale
The first part of the Fiverr gig creation guide that you need to choose from. As I mentioned above. Choosing the type of gig with one package or three packages is one of the necessary steps before creating a gig. Because, it can boost your gig and make more money later.
Currently, Fiverr supports sellers to create gigs with two basic package types. Is gig includes only one package and gig includes three packages. As follows:
Gig a pack
That is when you create gig. Your Gig only has a single pricing plan. For example, your gig does a content writing service for a 500 word website with a cost of 5$, for example. Below is a picture of the one-price gig package that when you create the gig. You need to set it up.
For this one-price gig package. Not that there is no way to make more money from it. You can set up multiple Gig Extras to unlock more services. From there can make more money with your service gig.
Gig three packs
That is, when you create a gig, you will need to set up for three plans. You can split the price plans into a basic plan, a standard plan, and an advanced plan. And of course in every such package. Prices and costs will have to be different and incremental. Here is an example image of a three-pack gig.
Your job is to set up all the packages in terms of cost, completion time and details of the packages.
Create your Gig
If you’re in the Buyers area , just look at the top right of the page. And select “ Switch to Selling ” to enter the seller’s area.
Here you will see a list of sections. You find and select “ Gigs ” to enter your service gig creation area.
Next you will be redirected to another page. Here, you find and select “ CREATE A NEW GIG ” to create a new gig.
You will now be redirected to the region to set up your service gig.
Fill in the necessary information of Gig
In the gig setup area, you need to complete a few sections before posting the gig and wait for Fiverr to confirm it. Those steps include the following:
Overview –> Pricing –> Description & FAQ –> Requirements –> Gallery –> Publish
This is the area for you to set up the title and SEO title for your gig, tags, select Categories, and more.
For this item, it is very important to create a gig. Because it is one of the factors that makes your gig appear on the first page of search or not. So don’t be in a hurry to do this part.
For Gig’s title: by default Fiverr will have the phrase I Will in full. So when you title your gig. You have to pay attention to how to properly title it. For example, ” I Will convert image to vector ” for example.
After you have set up all the information, select “ Save & Continue” to continue setting up other parts.
Here’s how to set up your gig’s cost information. Depending on how you choose gig one package or three gig gig as I mentioned above. Which is based on suggestions from Fiverr that set up.
For the one-gig package , you can fill in the gig’s information like what you will do in this gig, how much it will cost, how many days it will take to complete.
And for more money from the one-gig plan. There is nothing better than adding extra service packs. As will complete the order in one day is an extra 10$. Or write more optimized content for standard SEO articles, you need an extra $ 10, for example….
For a three-gig plan, you need to determine what services your gig can provide. And split the packages into 3 different packages.
- As the basic package is to do the basic work. An example of writing website content. 500 words for 5$
- The standard package is to write website content with 1000 words for 10$
- And the premium package is to write website content with more than 1000 words and optimize SEO for it, which costs $ 30, for example.
That’s how you separate out the options for each of the different packages that this Fiverr gig building guide wants to cover more clearly with you.
Description & FAQ
Is one of the important parts in the guide to creating gigs on Fiverr that Tien wants to mention. Here’s the description for your gig. You should probably do this yourself. But one thing to keep in mind is to provide to your customers. The most accurate information about the service you provide to them. And don’t forget, optimize the keyword you chose it for in the first place.
For the FAQ section, put yourself as a customer and ask the questions yourself. And add answers to those questions. This helps customers understand better. What they need to do and how to make it possible for you to have everything to fulfill their request.
You can add various questions by selecting “ + Add FAQ “. Once all done, select “ Save ” to continue to the next step.
In this section, you can choose from several requirements for your gig. That is, you are asking the customer to do something. Like providing documentation, pictures or files, etc. so that you can fulfill their request.
You can add different types of requirements by selecting “ + Add another requirement ”. Then select “ Save ” to save and move on to the next step.
This is quite an important part. You can post to your gig the product images that you have done before. It’s like a way for you to display your portfolio
Currently, Fiverr supports you to upload 3 images per gig in .JPG/.PNG format. file in .PDF format or a video with a size of only 50MB and a duration of 75s.
If you have them all, post them all. Otherwise, at the very least, you need to prepare yourself the images to post. But have to post it, otherwise I think you won’t be able to get your gig confirmed. For it to work. Finally, you choose “ Save ”
Thus, the guide to creating gigs on Fiverr here is considered complete.
Sign Gig and wait for confirmation
After you have completed the Gallery setup for your service gig. At this point, your gig setup is complete. Your job is to wait for Fiverr to review. This may take a few hours. Or as slow as possible from 1 to 2 days. However, in my experience, if your images, products do not violate any terms. Then your gig is confirmed from Fiverr very quickly.
