3 Great Tips To Boost Your Fiverr Account

3 Great Tips To Boost Your Fiverr Account

Heads up Fiverr enthusiasts! If you like freelancing like me or ARE a freelancer, trust that I know how good it feels to make money at home. But what’s even better is to be able to put your passion to use through ease and comfort.

Fiverr isn’t easy. It’s simple and comfortable. It has a great interface. It works well. All those things. But Fiverr is not easy.

I say this for many reasons.

See:

Whereas making an account on Fiverr is easy and its quite simple to register yourself there, and while it is also comfortable to start posting gigs there, TRUST, that even that might not work sometimes.

Many times, you might just upload 7-8 gigs and get nothing in return; no orders, no nothing.

However,

There are still many ways to get across the platform, get some orders and make some money off the website.

Without further-a-do then, here are 5 amazing tips to get you started on Fiverr.

Show some activity on your account

This might be a tough one on some hearts. However, if you want to excel at Fiverr, you should try to show some activity on your account. Make some momentum. Start SELLING but if you can be a buyer too, spend some money so your profile gets SOME momentum and movement.

The minute your profile gets some boost, it will start gaining some attraction and that’s how you have a higher chance of getting more orders!

Get your Buyers To Always Leave A (Positive Feedback)

Alright so, once you get an order and you successfully complete it, the buyer will accept it. However, he either has a choice of accepting the order, asking you to modify it or accept it and leave a review.

Make sure that you do your best. Do the best on your part and then leave it for the platform to strategically place your profile high in its rankings.

Positive reviews are the BEST way to get more orders. It’s the ideal way. Magic happens when you get more orders, trust me, it does! Though, that might give birth to the whole notion of how to get your first order to get the first review. However, that’s another topic and we might shed some light on that later for now.

But, tip no.1 is coherent with tip no.2 in a way that you should try that your profile gains some momentum on Fiverr. Once it does, rest will be magic.

Second and Third

Lastly, tip no.3 for this platform is to do your best! Make sure that you provide excellent services because this platform is a SERIOUS business. It’s not a fluke, there are no scams. In fact, scammers do get blocked instantly by Fiverr itself if it suspects any suspicious activity.

Also, note that Fiverr always has an eye or a (Secret) eye on every activity going on on the platform. Honestly, if you ask me, they ALWAYS know what’s going on. They will condemn, warn and eventually ban any mis-endeavour, outside promotion, false information or any kind of suspicious activity on your tag.

There are other important tips you must keep in mind before you use Fiverr.

  • Being extra careful when using Hashtags.
  • Be nice about the pictures/images you use
  • Keep it professional
  • Be careful about your English
  • Be grammatically correct
  • Offer services that are in demand (there is a way of checking which ones are in high demand on Fiverr honestly. There is also a way of checking those services on Fiverr (Hint: They are in pink and with them comes the word ‘new’).

To conclude:

Fiverr is an excellent platform for freelancers. The downside of the platform, however, is its fee structure. The company takes $1 on every order. So for a standard $5 order, you get $4. If you have a bigger order of say, $50, you will earn $40.

Though the platform is great, it comes with a price. Also, the ultimate formula of getting a proper ranking on Fiverr still remains a mystery. Honestly, it’s like the unknown. However, even we might get there as to what EXACTLY makes Fiverr work! Or The Perfect Formula For Being Successful On Fiverr.com).

Till now, use these 3 tips to get some luck on the platform. The upside is that once your account gets established and you rank higher (say become a level 2 seller), you will enjoy what happens after it.

Everything You Need To Know About Fiverr

By on November 7, 2018

Everything You Need To Know About Fiverr (Part 1)

I made an account on one of the top freelancing websites, Fiverr, couple of years ago. However, after that, I didn’t stopped using it. The account was open for a while but unused and untouched. Few years later, when I needed ‘the money‘, I decided to give Fiverr a shot. Luckily, I remembered my account details so I just logged in and there it was:

A platform with a great and very useful interface designed specifically and truly for freelancers.

As I got started, I noticed some very positive things about Fiverr.

First, it is a great platform that can help you earn a steady source of income. Additionally, you can get started on it for free and without any charge. All you need to do is a simple registration. After that, you will be good to go. Then, after you verify your account via email verification, the next step is create ‘gigs’.

What are Gigs on Fiverr.com?

As you register on Fiverr as a SELLER, you have to advertise your services through what you call ‘gigs’ on the platform. Initially, you have a set number of gigs you can display. You can set up to 7 gigs in the start. However, as your status changes from beginner to Level 1 seller, you get to upload more gigs (say 15 at a time or some more).

Fiverr: All About Fiverr- TechUnveiled
Fiverr: All About Fiverr- TechUnveiled

However, the downside of Fiverr is that even after you post the gigs online, there is absolutely no confirmation that you will start getting orders. In fact, some users have reported to not get orders for months after registration. Some people have given up on it altogether.

But:

The thing to note here is that on Fiverr, it is also a lot about LUCK.

If you get your first order, chances are your pace is going to improve overtime. Consistently and steadily but slowly and in some cases, very slowly.

The key point to remember here is:

ALWAYS ASK YOUR BUYER TO LEAVE A POSITIVE FEEDBACK ON YOUR GIG.

To a large extent, getting orders on Fiverr.com is more about the reviews and rankings on your profile than pictures and thumbnails.

Honestly, some Fiverr guides propose uploading proper CV type pictures on your profile. I don’t think that WILL NOT get you more orders. BUT. It is also likely that the proper profile picture doesn’t get you any orders.

I’ve seen people with simple pictures and name logos with 3000+ reviews. That means their gig has been ordered 3000+ times. Moreover, that only shows how much money you can make through and on Fiverr.

This is part 1 of “Everything You Need To Know About Fiverr“. Stay tuned for more updates.

In Part 2: We will cover:-

  • Fiverr gigs
  • Fiverr tips
  • Key points to remember

and much, much more.

Fortnitemares News: Fortnitemares Is Ending This Sunday

It’s all about Fortnite news these days isn’t it?

Well, let’s start recalling..

If I can remember and recall clearly, all people talk about these days is; Fortnite games, fortnite cheats, fortnite skins, fortnite costumes and others!

Oh, and let’s not forget, the ‘other skins‘ that are going to be revealed in fortnite too!

Fortnitemares news is abuzz and we have a major announcement to make here at Tech Unveiled!

*Drum Roll*

This is sad news for fortnitemares news followers is that Fortnitemares is coming to an end.

Everyone knew that Fortnitemares is definitely being launched and introduced for Halloween but I don’t think many people anticipated it ending so early.

But, today, Epic Games confirmed that it is indeed coming to an end and Sunday will be the last day to play it.

Fortnitemare news: Fortnitemare ends THIS Sunday!

The juicy part, however, for fortnitemare news is that it is coming to an end WITH a bang.

Well, that’s expected of Epic Games anyways.

Moreover, the company also cleared that Fortnitemares was only a one time occurrence and it will happen on Sunday, at 1PM ET (The Verge).

The developer, Epic Games, also encouraged Fortnite fans to hurry up, ‘login early and be in-match to witness the one-time event’.

Preclude to Fortnitemares

The entire buzz of Fortnitemares started last week. It represented a HUGE change for the game.

With Fortnitemares came new maps with awesome crystals that produced HORDES of monsters that looked like Zombies.

In a short period of time then, this special edition, due to end on SUNDAY, the whole Battle Royale, a Season 6 feature, changed drastically.

Not to forget to mention in this piece of fortnitemare news that Epic Games have had one-time events in the game previously too.

I remember in June, every Fortnite fan awaited the rocket launch which led to a dramatic rift towards and in the sky. That changed the game for sure! However, that too was a limited addition to the game.

The same is happening with Fortnitemares; it is confirmed fortnitemares news that Fortnite was a one-time event that’s coming to an end this Sunday.

Well, I am not quite sure what’s packed for Sunday but it IS going to be a big event.

However, if you know how good Fortnite Season 6 seems and looks, we can only expect good things.

Facebook CEO: Mark Zuckerberg

‘Grand Committee’ Set To Probe Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg

By on October 31, 2018

‘Grand Committee’ Set To Probe Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg

It clearly seems like Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (now owner of WhatsApp too) is in deep scrutiny.

Moreover, it appears that the UK-Canada joint ‘grand committee’ is urging Mark Zuckerberg to appear before them to answer certain questions.

According To Reports/Media

According to several reports, the Parliamentary Committees in Canada and Britain are both pleading Zuckerberg to testify. This will take place before a joint hearing of international lawmakers. The idea behind the scrutiny is to examine fake news and Internet as a whole.

Facebook CEO: Mark Zuckerberg.
Facebook CEO: Mark Zuckerberg.

Look, here’s the thing:

On Facebook, there’s a lot of news and media being shared and not all of it is true. In fact, most of what we read today is highlighted for one’s own motives and reasons. A lot of it is fake news too!

So, now, a UK-Canadian grand committee is now urging Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to come before the court and answer their queries.

Head of the UK parliament joint committee, Damian Collins, is also joining forces with his counterparts in Canada for this motive. The idea is to pressurise the Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to attend the hearings as he did before the European Parliament and US congress too.

The joint committee session is due to take place on November 27. It is being hosted by a grand committee. Other parliaments will also be attending it.

However, Collins did acknowledge that it is not possible for the Facebook CEO to be a part of every meeting or session. However, they feel that he is accountable for what his organisation is contributing to other countries. For that reason, they want him to be a part of it personally.

Problems With Facebook

Facebook is always under the radar for more than one reason.

This time, Mark Zuckerberg is being urged by the parliamentary forces in UK-Canada to be answerable for his actions. Moreover, and for what his site, Facebook is doing, posting and spreading.

GoDaddy Joins Others To Withdraw Gab Support After Pittsburgh Shooting Incident

Gab is under a lot of scrutiny after its name was recognised in the recent Pittsburgh shooting incident. It is also because Robert Bowers, the shooter at the Pittsburgh shooting incident, posted an image on the social network Gab with his weapons that he ‘recently bought’.

Tech giants such as Apple and Google have also withdrawn support from the company.

Now today, GoDaddy has also threatened to pull Gab’s domain. After GoDaddy’s announcement, Gab is down again.

The recent Pittsburgh shooting incident has caused a lot of uproar in America. Moreover, Gab is also allegedly linked to the shooting and hence, has faced a massive penalty for it.

With a far right following, Gab is a social network which has always been controversial.

Major Tech Giants Cut Gab Support

Other companies that have withdrawn support from Gab include:

  • PayPal
  • Joyent
  • Stripe
  • Medium

In an announcement, GoDaddy revealed that it has informed social networking site Gab that they have 24 hours to choose. They can move to another provider as they have violated their terms and services. After receiving complaints, GoDaddy investigated the matter and realised the site has content that instigates violence.

Gab is inaccessible at the moment through its website. It has stated on its website is “under attack” and is working to get it back online but with a new provider.

On its website, Gab’s statement reads that they have been smeared by mainstream media for defending free expression. They are working with law enforcement to ensure that justice is served for the Pittsburgh crime.

Contrarily, social network Gab also posted on Twitter that it will “likely be down for weeks”. Their statement followed the statement that Joyent’s decision to pull out support as a hosting provider has brought instability for the company.

However, their tweet today suggests that the website will be ‘back soon’.

It is clear that Gab is clearly involved in the Pittsburgh shooting incident.

Robert Bowers had a profile on Gab that came in front of the media after the incident.

At that moment, Gab bore the brunt of the shooting too. Soon after, it got threatened by major tech companies for withdrawing support.

On the other hand, today, GoDaddy, now, has cut off its support for the site, which is labelled as ‘neo-nazi’.
