How to Sell on Fiverr in 2018 – Beginners Guide

  1. If you are looking to sell service on Fiverr & make extra income but on the other hand don’t know how to start — this article is for you.

I see a lot of people start with creating an account on Fiverr & end up with no sales.

Well, this article is dedicated to everyone who doesn’t know much about Fiverr.

Let’s get started,

1Account Creation/Sign up

Creating an account on Fiverr is a very simple process just like other sites.

Simply go to & from header select ‘Become a Seller’ — Once selected then it will ask you to join Fiverr with Facebook, Gmail or manually through your email.

Once your account is created, Now its time for setting up your profile.

2Setting up Fiverr profile

Just remember, Your profile plays an important role in getting more orders so if your profile looks spammy — you’ll get no sales.

Now you might be thinking about how you can make your profile look professional – so here’s the thing.

A: Use your own Image as a profile picture

Using your own image as a profile picture helps in building trust with your buyers – as I saw a lot of people use different pictures & logo – what the hell is this? Please avoid this.

Also, avoid using a funky name for your profile — you’re a professional, not a joker.

B: Write a proper description about yourself

Give a little bit of extra time in writing a proper description about you — write all the areas of your expertise, your experience & what makes you better than others.

Also fill every detail which is been asked, such as — your certifications, Skills & education.

Now once your profile is ready, Now it’s time to create a gig.

3Creating a first Fiverr Gig

To Create your first gig – Open your profile & select ‘Create a new gig’, once selected then it will ask you to write the Gig title.

Choose the suitable title for the service you are offering.

After selecting the suitable title for your gig, now its time to choose the category — buyers usually searches for the services through categories so it’s very important to choose suitable category & sub-category.

Just below the categories, there will be another field to choose Gig metadata, where you can select the different services that you provide in a particular category.

Once completed these steps — click on Save & Continue

Now this page will ask you to choose the pricing.

Here you can create different packages – simply select the package name & write the details of what people will get in this package including the price.

You can also Add Extras to increase your order value.

Now Recheck all the fields & click on Save & Continue.

Now this page will ask you to write the complete description about the gig which you are offering — Include the most important information for your Gig.

Below the Gig Description, you can Add frequently asked questions and answers to the most commonly asked questions.

After adding the FAQ’s click on save & continue.

Now the next page will ask you to write the instruction which is required to start the work. Indicate what you need before you can start working.

After adding the requirements — click on save & continue.

Now it’s time to add images & video to your gig – Don’t use someone else image/video in your Gig.

You can easily create Image for your Gig using Canva.

In my years of experience, one thing that I noticed on Fiverr is that — the conversion rate of the gigs which have video is higher than the gig with only images.

With that said, now it’s time to publish your Gig.


Click on Publish Gig & sit back relax.

Congratulations! You have successfully created your first Gig.


So these were the steps with which you can start selling on Fiverr. I hope you all have successfully created your account — Now your account is ready to sell services.
