What is Fiverr?

Fiverr started in early 2010 and became popular quickly. People use Fiverr for a variety of different services, including but not limited to logo design, creative writing, academic writing, IT & website design, and more.

Tips To Become A Fiverr Pro
If you have a skill, like writing, design, video editing, etc. then make sure you utilize your own and Fiverr’s full potential to sell it. As an affordable and social platform, Fiverr is all about reputation. You are not the only one offering your service, and if you want to keep sales & profit high, you need to consistently reassert your reputation as the best in town!
Video marketing is a definitive trend of the past decade or so. If you use either you own or perhaps another Fiverr buddy’s skill to promote your service in a detailed and clear video, you’re bound to get more hits.
People want to see what you offer, and when the only connection you have is an internet connection the best way to this is through the power of video.
Be professional but also personable. Remember that for most of your clients you’re communicating entirely online. This means you need to put in a bit of extra effort to create a person to person relationship and have this customer see you as more than a robotic service provider.
Like this the buyer will feel they get more of a personal and tailored service, and will be more likely to return for more, write a positive review, and even recommend friends.
