How To Create A Fiverr Gig On Mobile

To create a Fiverr seller gig, the first thing you need to do is to login to your Fiverr account and switch on desktop settings. 

There are six major steps involved in creating a Fiverr account.

Step One: Account Overview

On the new desktop interface, kindly follow the following steps to get started:

  • In your Fiverr dashboard, click on the green button that says “Create A New Gig”. 
Fiverr account creation process
  • In the first section you are to input the title of your gig, the category your gig belongs to and the search terms related to your gig.

The title of your gig can basically just be what you are offering. You can input something like ” I Will Be Your SEO Optimised Article Writer” etc. Using the example used above, the category of my writing gig will be “writing and translations“. 

Fiverr gig account title

Basically, it varies depending on the service you are offering on Fiverr. The next step is to choose a subcategory for your gig. Note, in the example above my main category is “writing and translations”, under sub category I can further niche down the type of writing I will offer. It could be story writing, blog article writing, poetic writing etc.

Choosing a subcategory on fiverr

Immediately after selecting a sub category, another mini form will pop out of the page. This form is called your gig “meta data”. Now the information contained in this gig metadata varies according to the service you have chosen to render in fiverr.

Gig metadata feature

Since I chose writing and translation as an illustration, the requirements I am meant to fill up in the metadata include;

  •  The language I will be offering my writing service. Would I be writing in English or Africans or Spanish etc. 
  • The topic of my writing; whether news and entertainment, educational write ups, food and beverages, etc. 
  • The tone of my writing or my writing style (conversational, numerous, funny etc).
  • Finally, the type of articles I will be writing, whether long form articles, review articles etc. 
Fiverr account creation

Lastly In this section, the search terms are what will help your gig get discovered on Fiverr. Since I used writing as my service in this example, some search terms I can apply here include: blog post, article writer, content writer, blogger, copywriter, website content etc. When that is done, proceed to the next page by clicking ” save and continue”.

Step Two: Pricing

The next section is titled “pricing”. Basically this is where you are going to add the price you want customers or clients to pay for your service.

Fiverr gig account creation

There are two major ways to set prices for your services on fiverr. The first through setting a standard fee and the second is to offer price packages.

The standard fee is a single price you have set for all transactions and services you will be rendering on that gig. Whereas a price package comes into play when you can offer more service for more money. 

Payment settings on fiverr

Now I can choose to set a standard fee of $50 for any writing service I offer on this gig (example of standard fee). On the other hand, I can set a $50 price tag for an article of 1000 words, $100 for an article of 2000 words and $150 for an article of 3000 words (this is an example of a price package).

You can choose between standard and price packages by clicking on the button at the top of the page.

Fiverr account creation

Note: If you wish to add some extra service for a little more cash, then you can fill up the “Add Extra Services” form.

Before moving to the next section you will also fill out other important details such as the delivery time, the number of revisions you will offer (how many times you will go through an over a certain service if the client is not satisfied). Finally click on “save and continue”.

Step Three: Description And FAQ

I consider the description as the most important aspect of your fiverr gig. The way you present the words, the way you introduce your brand, the way you speak about your experience level and previous work experience will either boost your sales or turn down customers.

So ensure to take your time to write something good and catchy as your description. If possible you can hire a copywriter to help write a nice converting description that will turn your gig visitors into buyers and customers.

Furthermore, you can additionally add an FAQ page to this description to boost your sales. If you have some questions your customers always ask or questions you perceive your clients will ask about your service, you can list them out and provide answers to them to increase more trust and confidence in your potential customers.

FAQs section

When you are done with the description proceed to the next page by clicking “save and continue”.

Step Four: Requirements

Depending on the service you are rendering on fiverr, if you have any requests or requirements from clients before starting their projects you can list them out here. Assuming you are a video editor, you will most certainly need video clips from the clients etc.

Fiverr gig creation

You can also choose the format you want to receive the requirements in. Do you want your clients to just text you the details? Or would you prefer a video, file or picture attachment? Or better still, would you love the both? You can simply make your choice and click on the ‘Add’ button.

When all that is done, click on the green ” save and continue ” button.

Step Five: Gallery

At this juncture you are almost done with creating your first fiverr gig. In this section, you are expected to upload images about your gig. Now I strongly advise you to study what other people who are offering the same service as you on fiverr are using as their gig images. Keep your image simple but eye-catching. By default, you are expected to upload three pictures.

Additionally, you can also upload a video about your gig. This is very important if you want to get high paying clients. Videos generally convert better than pictures. This simple rule of thumb also applies on fiverr. 

Uploading images to your fiverr gig

Now depending on the service you are rendering on fiverr, you might also be given a section titled “documents” where you can upload documents or pictures of the last jobs you did for previous clients. This helps build more trust and confidence in your potential customers.

Step Six: Publish Your Gig

You are almost there! All that’s left right now is to actually click on the publish button and publish your gig on fiverr. Being that this is actually your first fiverr gig, you will most likely be asked to verify your phone number before you publish your gig.

Fiverr gig set up

All you have to do is to input your phone number in a box fiverr will provide for you. A code will be sent to that phone number you have typed and you are expected to input that code in a code verification space that will be present. When you have successfully verified your phone number, you can now publish your fiverr gig.

Phone number verification

Congratulations! Your fiverr gig is now live. You can now start earning through your fiverr gig.
