How to make your Fiverr Profile stand out

Before you commit to working with a company or a professional, you usually like to know who exactly it is that you’ll be doing business with. Maybe you google them, check out their LinkedIn profile, or take a look at their other social media channels. At the end of the day, we all like to know a little bit about the people we’re trusting with our hard-earned money, and this is no less true for buyers on Fiverr.

On Fiverr, the first thing most buyers will do, before they click the “purchase” button, is check out your seller profile. It’s important to invest some time and thought into your profile. From your picture to your description, think of your profile as a way to declare yourself, your skills, and why your buyer should choose you.

Use these tips below to focus on crafting a page that displays exactly who you are and what makes you unique.

Showcase you and your business

When it comes to making your profile stand out, it’s really about showcasing who you are, why you do what you do, and the principles that guide your work.

Treat your profile as an opportunity to introduce yourself to potential customers, and create a space where they can get to know you and your professional style. A great profile inspires confidence and enthusiasm in buyers, and is an important part of building your Fiverr business!

Display your skills

No matter what category your Gig is in—graphic design, programming, writing, or anything else—it’s important to find a creative way to demonstrate why you are the best choice for that category, through your profile.

For example, If you’re a designer then you should have an awesome and visually intriguing profile picture. If you’re a writer then your description should be engaging and well-written.

While it’s important to keep your profile professional, you should also let your quirks and unique personality shine through. Whether you want to wear your favorite band’s t-shirt in your profile picture (even if it’s a professionally done headshot) or reference your hobbies in your description, show that you bring something special to the table. The key is to keep it simple and subtle—remember it’s all about the Gigs.

Show your true face

It’s human nature to want to see the face of the person you’re communicating with. Having a Profile Picture that clearly shows your face will make your Profile look more professional and will show buyers that they’re working with a real individual person.

Use your description space wisely

While it’s good to put fun or light-hearted touches to your description, remember that each word takes up valuable real estate. Don’t waste space on too many things that are off-topic.
We suggest that you:

  1. Focus first on writing a clear and sharp description of who you are.
  2. Edit and tweak it to make it more personable within the space limits.
