I’ve written a couple of articles on how to start getting sales on Fiverr starting from the very first day that you joined. However, there are hundreds of sellers that are not getting sales due to one reason or the other. In this short article, i will highlight five things that prevent you from getting sales, and share some tips that can help you change the story. Enjoy!
1. Poor communication skill.
You already know that communication play the major role when it comes to closing business deal. On Fiverr, if your communication is extremely poor, chances that you’ll get sales are lean. Of course, you don’t need to be a trained communicator before you can communicate effectively. In fact, you don’t need to worry about the grammar unless you’re a writer. The most important thing is to reply messages as quick as possible, and provide the relevant information needed to convince prospects.
2. Poorly written gig description.
If you can’t invest your time and efforts to write detailed and captivating description for your gigs, then no need to worry about “NO SALES”. I’ve just written a guide on how to write the best gig description, and i will send it to my list later today.
3. Low value-added gigs
Everyone wants to get the best for the price – not giving way too much, but at least, something really awesome. if you can’t deliver great values for the price, prospects will patronize someone else. Averagely, every prospective buyer contact at least 2 providers before making their buying decision.
4. Bad reputation
During your first few months on Fiverr, make sure you invest everything that you have to build your reputation. Acquire enough positive reviews that can help you drive more sales. If your reputation is really bad, say goodbye to that account or invest hugely on it so that the reputation can get better.
5. The service you offer and your location
Yes, the service you offer can affect your chance of getting people to buy from you. This is obviously one of the secrets that many sellers don’t know. Ideally, you’re expected to know your service better, and know how to reach your target market. However, if you’ve put up a service that makes no sense to your target market, chances of getting people to buy from you are low. For instance, if you’re offering services related to Yelp, you should know that your major market is USA, UK, AU, and CA. However, if you don’t know the best way to position your service to the prospects, and your location says that you don’t live in any of these regions, you might not be able to convince them to buy from you.
I hope this short tip will help you to better optimize your gig and improve your profile to look more professional, and eventually get more people to buy from you.
