    Hey guys,
    I just wanted to let you know, that I have noticed some interesting stuff, that I didnt find here.

    I think it's quite useful to know.

    First Thing:

    Watch your first 70-90 words! These words will show up in the short description of your gig in the fiverr search results. Make them AS CATCHY AS POSSIBLE!
    People like rhetorical questions, paradox stuff, elliptics.. Just make them curious about your gig. Nothing like "OMG U READ RIGHT ONLY 5 BUCKS" but I think you get the point

    Second Thing:

    Fiverr is buggy, sometimes! Always take a look at your gigs as a customer.
    You will also notice, that there are no linebreaks in your description text. That sucks, but we have to live with it. Just use capslock to emphasize words, this always works.

    Third Thing:

    Rather than sending junk traffic to my gigs, I create more accounts in order to post the same gigs again. The idea behind this is to move others away from the search result. It WILL increase your sale rate, though it's a little black hat and time intensive.

    Now, I'm telling you this, because you won't do it anyway you lazy poopers :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Fourth Thing:

    USE EBAY! EBAY IS GREAT! Sell your gigs accordingly on ebay. Not only that you will earn much more on ebay, but you can also join both fiverr and ebay production, so you use your time more efficiently. :top:

    Fifth Thing:

    Fiverr gig images are a pain in the ass. I never found the right size, it always gets stretched or squeezed like hell. So I appreciate anyone posting the right size here, I think it's quite important, because many people dont want to make a video because of different reasons, mainly because it's too much time for something, you only earn a few bucks with.
    It's better to await results without wasting your time on a video, and then, if the gig succeeds, add a video, later (in my opinion)

    So this was my first "useful" post here, I hope you enjoyed it.
    If you just learned something, just hit the thanks button, it doesn't hurt ;)

    Any more ideas or advice is appreciated.

    kind regards,
    SICK

    you may realized it or not, but fiverr resizes every picture you upload into 380px × 265px, so if you don't want your pictures to get stretched, you need to upload pictures with close to this (380:265) aspect ratio

    Yes, that's right, it will get you banned, if you don't use multiple paypal accounts. I use proxies all the time, I think it's one of the reasons, they didnt ban me.

    Actually, It's very easy:

    You simply create some auctions. You can choose from a standard auction or a "buy it now" auction. I prefer the "buy it now auction" because you dont have to create an auction every time someone bought your stuff.
    Ebay allows you to define a limited number of times your article can be sold, when creating a "buy it now" auction. Here, I prefer a small number, because you can say this "SPECIAL OFFER! LIMITED!" stuff, which makes it kinda special.

    Payment is as easy as can be, because you can have it transferred directly to your paypal or bank account.

    I will explain this in more detail in another thread, very soon ;)

    kind regards,
    SICK

    Yes, I'm sure you can sell that, too.
    Price depends on your area and competition. You have to try a little bit, though.

    These are good A1 tips also but one thing is for sure is you want to start collecting emails and giving out your email through the use of text files being uploaded as attachments.

    Also instead of doing pics like everyone else make videos for your gigs. It can be as easy as a slide show explaining the gig while hitting the benefits hard.

    I have noticed fiverr sellers selling on ebay as well. Just look at the completed gigs for backlnks and find the sellers doing well with what kind. I can tell you now that EDU links sell well on ebay and almost anywhere online.
