How to Create the Most Popular Gigs on Fiverr and Make Money

Here is the step-by-step guide of doing Fiverr gig SEO in 2020:

1. Get Ideas from Fiverr

Before you start creating a gig on Fiverr, figure out the services you want to sell on this platform. If you are short of ideas, the main page of Fiverr has different categories at the top. Hover over any category and you’ll see a submenu with subcategories.  Explore them in detail to get a lot of useful ideas about the skills you can offer on Fiverr.

2. Collect Relevant Keywords Data

If you want to be successful on Fiverr, finding and using the right keywords in your gig is the key. They play an important role in making your gig popular on Fiverr.

Before creating a gig, make sure you have done good keyword research on the niche related to your services. Besides that, search the existing gigs of sellers, analyze their way of working, and try to explore the gaps present in those gigs. Fill those gaps by creating a gig of your own.

3. Create Keywords-Enriched Gig Title

Now when you have done all the necessary research, it’s time to create your own gig. If you don’t know the basic steps of publishing a gig, you may learn them here:

The first step of creating a gig is to write a gig title. It’s very difficult to define your entire service in a few words (80 characters) so you have to be very creative here.

 Tips for Creating a Catchy Gig Title:  

  • Create 4 to 5 different gig titles and test them from time to time to see which one sells the best.
  • Use the maximum number of low-competition keywords in the gig title.
  • Highlight your unique selling points in the title with the help of adjectives.
  • Fiverr automatically generates the URL of your gig depending on the words used in the title. If you have used appropriate keywords in the title and the URL, your gig will rank much better.
  • Remember, you can always edit the title of the gig later but you cannot edit the URL of the gig once it’s published. So, be very careful with the words you are using in the title for the very first time because they are going to be in the URL as well.

Example

I want to create a gig related to whiteboard videos. Here are the keywords I have collected for this gig:

Keywords - ASH KNOWS

My strategy will be to pick up low-competition keywords and create a keyword-enriched gig title.

Note that these keywords can be used in combination, such as “Whiteboard Video” and “Whiteboard Animation” can make up “Whiteboard Animation Video” so when someone searches for this keyword, your gig may appear on the first page.

Also, you can see, the keyword “Videoscribe” has the lowest competition among all these keywords so I’ll try to use it in the gig title. Videoscribe is basically a software used for creating whiteboard videos. Whenever a buyer will search videoscribe, my gig will surely rank better in search results because the competition is low.

Here are 5 variations of the gig titles you can create using these keywords:

1. I will create an animated whiteboard explainer video in videoscribe

Keywords used:

  • Create whiteboard animation
  • Whiteboard animation
  • Whiteboard video
  • Whiteboard explainer
  • Whiteboard animation explainer
  • Whiteboard animation video

  • Animated explainer Video
  • Videoscribe

2. I will design an amazing whiteboard explainer video in videoscribe

  • Videoscribe

3. I will create a professional whiteboard animation explainer video

  • Whiteboard animation
  • Whiteboard video
  • Whiteboard explainer
  • Whiteboard animation explainer
  • Whiteboard animation video
  • Whiteboard explainer video
  • Explainer video
  • Animated explainer Video

4. I will create a stunning whiteboard animation and explainer video

Keywords used:

  • Create whiteboard animation
  • Whiteboard animation
  • Whiteboard video
  • Whiteboard explainer
  • Whiteboard animation explainer
  • Whiteboard animation video
  • Whiteboard explainer video

  • Whiteboard animation explainer
  • Whiteboard animation video
  • Whiteboard explainer video

All of the above gig titles are good to go. But, I’ll prefer the first one because it has maximum keywords in it. That’s how you create your gig titles.

4. Select the Right Category & Sub-Category

When you write the gig title, Fiverr provides you some suggestions regarding the categories and sub-categories that are related to your services. Choose the right categories because they make your gig accessible to the right buyers who might be interested in your services.

Besides that, fill Gig Metadata by selecting the options that belong to your services.

5. Add Accurate Tags

Tags are like keywords that tell Fiverr about the services you are offering in your gig. It’s important to add appropriate tags in the gig because it greatly improves your Fiverr gig SEO.

Fiverr allows you to add 5 tags in the gig. Use 5 different keywords in the tags section that are relevant to your service.

Example

Here are the tags I used for my gig:

6. Create Compelling Gig Packages

No matter how good your gig is, if you are unable to set the right price packages for your gig, you’ll obviously have a hard time getting orders.

Do some research on Fiverr to see the rates that other sellers are offering for the service you want to sell. Once you get an idea of the market rates, create 3 different packages for your gig. Afterward, define your gig packages by writing a precise description for each one of them.

Pro Tip:

When you are new to Fiverr, set your price a bit lower than the market rates. This will help you to get your initial orders. For example, if everyone is selling whiteboard videos for  $50, you can offer $30 for the same service.

However, I will never recommend you to devalue your work by setting cheap prices that don’t make sense. If you are a new seller and you think it’s important to sell your gigs for $5 to get orders, you are mistaken.

When you set very low prices for your quality work, buyers don’t really value your services. In order to get good rankings in the Fiverr search engine, set a reasonable price for your gig packages.

You can also add extra services to your gig by using My Gig Extras section.

7. Write a Persuasive Gig Description

Craft a convincing description for your gig. Tell your buyers what your service is about, your experience, what you are offering, and why they should choose you among all the other sellers. Provide all the information that you think buyers should know about your gig.

While you are explaining your service, add some important keywords in the description but don’t overstuff them. Just use relevant keywords 1 to 2 times where needed.  This will help you to improve the SEO of your Fiverr gig.

8. Design Captivating Pictures and Videos

If you want to get good rankings in Fiverr search results, make sure you have created a great-looking image or video for your gig. A good gig image or video attracts buyers and increases the number of views on your gig.

Fiverr ranks those gigs well that have a video in them. Create a video no longer than 1 minute and explain your services in it. Furthermore, before saving your gig image or video, always rename it to your gig title. Don’t save it with random names. It’s good for gig SEO.

9. Promote Your Gig on Social Media

This is self-explanatory, I guess. Sharing your gigs on social media (Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter) is good for advertising yourself as well as your business. It helps people to know about you, your business, and Fiverr as well. When they click on your gig, it increases your gig views. This tells Fiverr that people are interested in your services and the Fiverr search engine starts ranking your gig higher.

Summary

Creating a successful gig on Fiverr depends on how you are presenting your services and how effectively you are solving the problem of the buyers.

If you have spent quality time in creating an SEO-optimized gig and you are providing good-quality service, you will surely make money on Fiverr.

Remember, there is no shortcut to success on Fiverr. Keep working and trying different tips & tricks to see what exactly works for your account.
