Fiverr.com Review: Peculiarities, Registration, and Start of Work
Fiverr is a freelance platform with a fixed cost of non-complicated tasks. The customers can publish cheap and easy tasks, and the freelancers can quickly earn here. The cost of one order is $5.
Here one can sell virtually any work connected with computer skills:
Programming in any languages;
Programs and apps testing;
Copywriting, rewriting and SEO;
Simple things also sell well here: gift cards, creative tasks, video shooting, and reviews.
Fiverr works with users from all over the world, but the website is only available in English. Luckily, it’s user-friendly and it is easy to navigate on it.
Registration on Fiverr
For a start, open the website, and press the “Join” button in the right upper corner. In the dialog window that will immediately appear you will be offered to enter the email address, and after the confirmation of it your name and password.
It’s better to choose a business nickname for the website: name and surname, name and part of surname, as the customer will more eagerly choose Tom Jackson that TigerinTornSheet. The ability to sell your talents starts with a proper name of your mini-brand. After clicking on the confirmation link sent to your email you will receive access to your account.
To add an offer, you have to fill in the form and choose your specialization. You can also set an avatar and a status. Statistically, the accounts with real photos get orders more often than those with cartoon characters or empty profiles. All this is explained on the next page when one attempts to place an order.
Take your time to make your profile look the way you want.
Strengthen your credibility adding the new sites you work on;
Honestly and briefly describe your skills to select an optimal order;
Add a photo in which your face is well seen;
Possibly, we will ask you to authenticate identity.
Simply press the green Continue button to proceed.
Then you will get a warning on the things you should avoid:
Do not add incorrect or misleading information about yourself;
Do not create additional accounts to get more orders;
Do not use the services of other freelancers on Fiverr to complete the order you have got.
Now you know all main moments, and the service offers you to create an account: to upload a photo, a status, and professional info.
At first, you will have to fill in your name and surname, the photo your face must be seen in and a brief description of your experience, hobbies, and intentions. The description must be at least 150 characters. You can add your language at the bottom part of the screen.
Pressing the “Continue” button in the bottom part of the screen, you get to the next step. Here you will be offered to choose one specialization from the list and from 2 to 5 topics you are good at. Just below you can add skill on your own, and specify how well you are good at it: a beginner, a medium expert or an expert. Then you have to specify your education: the country your college is in, the name of the college, the results of education and the graduate year. If you don’t have a higher education or are studying now, you can skip the field. At the next step you will have to list your certificates if you have got any. This field is also non-obligatory. In the last field you can add a link to your website.
After that you can link your social networks: Linkedin, Google, and Facebook. You can add your email and phone number at the next step.
Your account is ready!
