Tutorial : How to Create a Fiverr Gig and make sales

Fiverr is the leading marketplace for services starting at just $5. Lots of people buy and sell services (and also products) everyday through Fiverr. The available services range from business promotion, social networking and advertisement to funny videos, graphic design and translations to mention just a few.


These offered services are called “GIGS” on Fiverr. You can find almost anything you need. People from all over the world visit the site to offer their services and expertise. After you have decided, what service you have to offer, lets jump on Create a Gig Section.

Create a Gig

keep the title short and simple –  ” I will (do or create something). like, create a professional whiteboard animation video.


Here are some other titles I have used that did well-

  • I will create an AMAZING Whiteboard Animation Video
  • I will create a PROFESSIONAL Whiteboard Doodle Video
  • I will create an Eye CATCHY Animation Video

Put you gig in relevant categories

Choose a categories, and subcategories for your service, which is relevant to your service. If you are offering video editing, choose video and animation categories. if you are confused, you can check in what categories, did the other sellers, are offering that particular service.

Step 5 – Tags/Keywords

One of the most important parts of your gig is setting up the tags and keywords. A lot of people don’t realise this but having your gig tagged correctly is very important to the ranking of your gig in Fiverrs search results. Mention a useful tag for your Gig, what you feel, the buyer should search, if he is looking for your service.


Take a look at the picture above and you will see the tags I used and also set your gig delivery duration to “1 DAY” to make believe the buyer that you are serious and will deliver fast.

Writing Your Gigs Description

Your description is also a very important part to your gig that you need to get right.

Just like with the images I also search around Fiverr and look at what the other top sellers are doing and use their descriptions as inspiration.

Whatever you do, don’t copy their descriptions or your will get banned. Just use them as inspiration and come up with your own unique description.

Submit Requirements

Suppose if buyers order you, then what are the things you required to complete the order. as for example, If buyer orders a article writing gig, you must required the title and topic on which you have to write. for making logo you need company name and logo ideas. So in this step, submit the Questions and requirements you need from buyer to start the order.

Creating Your Gig Image

If you do a search for similar gigs you will notice some of them have better images than others that really stand out. Do some searches and take some inspiration from the gig images that really stand out to you.Once you have done that you can use photoshop to create your Fiverr gig image.

Video for Your Gig

If you are offering any media service, like video and animation, video editing, testimonials, voice over then you must upload video explaining your service in your portfolio. Uploading video is not mandatory but recommended as it multiplies the sales and make your Profile look professional. If you are offering service like, content marketing, article writing, etc then you can skip this.

Publish your Gig

After completing above steps, you have successfully created your gig. Now sit back relax and wait for buyers to order you. For a new account getting orders is difficult, but you can read my article on how to make your first sale on fiverr and it will be helpful to you for sure. you can create maximum of seven gigs in a new account. choose as much services, you can offer and create them with the same process.
