So if you don’t have an E-Mail account then you create one on Gmail for free. It will take just a few minutes to get an Email from Gmail.

2. Choose a Niche

At this step, you have to ready your account and complete your profile. You know there is a huge competition and more than 500 services categories and niches on Fiverr.

Now you’ve to find a service that matches your interest and also has less completion in it. I recommend you to rather than going for a broad category (Topic) go with a small category (niche). So that you don’t face huge competition at your initial growing stage.

A niche is a subset or a small part of a big topic or a large market. Nowadays, every freelancer starts from a niche because of low competition and more conversions.

Here are the exact steps that you need to take to choose a niche.

  • Brainstorm your expertise: At the 1st step, note down all the main categories on which you’ve knowledge or expertise. You can also take help from your friends or family.
  • Choose a Niche: As you ready with the list then you’ve to them on Fiverr. You’ve to check them one by one, are these categories available on Fiverr. You continue this process until you find two or more topics of your expertise.
  • Analyze Competitors: Now you have to search every final topic into Fiverr. And then analyze your competitors and find out low competition keywords.
  • Find Problem in this Niche: Now you’ve low competition topics to create a gig. But if you get more than one topic then you’ve to choose one that solves more problems.

3. Create a gig on Fiverr:

Now you have got a Fiverr account and a niche for your gig. So let’s move towards posting a new gig on Fiverr.

To create a new gig, just go to the gig page from the dashboard of your profile. Then click on create a new gig button on the middle right of the page in green color.

Next, it will open a page from where you can start entering the details of your niche. On this page, you’ll be asked to choose a title, category, tags, and service details (depending upon your niche).

Gig Title: Fiverr gig title is the very important and most displayed point of your gig. So you’ve to create a unique title that solves the buyer’s problems.

You can brainstorm more than two titles from your own perspective. Then you can choose one that satisfies your needs.

In addition, you can’t write a title that is below 15 characters and higher than 80 characters. So you have to maintain the length of your title while choosing a title.

I also recommend you to check out my complete guide on writing a gig title.

Category: After gig title, you’ve to choose a category and then sub-category for your gig. As you write your title, Fiverr will give you a few categories depending upon the title. However, you can also choose your own category if you’re satisfied with Fiverr.

It is very to choose the right category for your gig. If you choose the wrong category then you’ve to face a lot of trouble in ranking, buyer requests, and many more.

Tags: In this step, you have to choose tags for your category. These tags play an important role to get ranking on Fiverr. So I highly recommend you to choose your tags wisely.

One more thing, you’ve to enter your main keyword in your tag. This will helps Fiverr to understand what is the topic of your gig.

After completing all the steps, you’ve to click the save & continue button.

Step2: Pricing

At this step, you’ve to decide the different types and prices for your gig. This step is very important to get orders from the buyers.

Therefore you’ve to choose every point carefully to avoid the trouble of not getting orders. Here is how you can choose these points;

Number of Packages: At the 1st point, you’ve to decide how many packages you want to add to your gig. Fiverr give you an option whether you can choose 3 packages or one package.

It’s all depends on you and your niche how many packages to add. But I recommend you add three packages because buyers can easily pick one depending upon their needs.

Package Name: Next you’ve to give the name to your packages. So if you choose one package then you’ll choose one name. Otherwise, you’ve to give three names to your every package.

Package Features: Then you’ve to write the features of every package. Every package will have different features and results depending upon the price.

Revisions: At this point, you need to configure how many revisions you’ll give to your buyers. Every package will also have a different number of revisions. So you can decide the number of revisions usually most of the freelancers offer up to unlimited revisions.

Delivery Time: Here you’ve to decide how many days you’ll need to complete this order. It may differ from every package because a higher price package needs more work. So you also need more time to complete this.

Price: The most important point of a gig is the price of your gig. You can’t charge a too high or too low a price for your service. Because buyers will not trust you and they will not buy from you. However, you can get help from your competitors to decide on a unique price for your packages.

Extra Options: This is an optional point, Fiverr gives you an option to give some extra features for the extra amount. Here you can offer extra services like the number of revisions, delivery time, etc. to charge more from the buyer.

After completing all the steps, you’ve to click the save & continue button.

Step3: Description & FAQ

The description is also a very important step to create a gig on Fiverr. This is the point where all of your buyers will land and covert into your regular customers.

Here you’ve to briefly explain your service, its features, and your experience. So that you can convert more and more people into your customers.

According to Fiverr, you’ve to write a minimum of 20 characters and a maximum of 1200 characters in your gig description. In addition, you can also use text highlighter and text bold feature to highlight some important features of your gig.

I also recommend you to check out my in-depth guide on Fiverr gig description.

After gig description, you’ve to write the FAQ (frequently asked question) about your gig. This is optional, but if you’re in a niche where buyers have questions in their minds for your service.

Then I highly recommend you answer all these questions and relate them to your service. This way your chances of getting orders will also start to grow.

Step4: Requirements

In this step, Fiverr will ask you what are requirements you want from your buyer. This step is very important to get the buyer’s attention by fulfilling their needs.

Here you’ve different options to get these requirements from your buyers. You can use questions, file uploads, or simple text depending upon your niche.

Once you’ve done with the requirements then a buyer will not be able to place an order without having these details.

After completing all the steps, you’ve to click the save & continue button.

Step5: Gallery

The last but most important point after the gig title is the Fiverr gig gallery. Fiverr gig gallery is very important because this is the most prominent part of your gig.

In the Fiverr gallery, you can add video, images, and PDF files to your portfolio. But images are the most used elements of the gallery.

Fiverr offer a seller to add 3 images (max 5MB each) into a gig with a size of 550 by 370 pixels. So you have to create your images according to these requirements. I also recommend you to read my recent post on Fiverr gig images.

After completing all the steps, you’ve to click the save & continue button.

Step6: Hit Publish
