Fiverr Profile Description Sometimes, the words are more powerful and inspiring enough to make a difference. How would you actually make a difference with your bio? It’s the foremost important thing that you can use to win someone’s opinion about you. Over the months, I am asked hundreds of times and received a lot of emails regarding this topic. Every profile, I checked, had a same conventional bio. Making it inspiring is the whole losh of tosh. In the Bio section, not only you get a chance to express your passion but also you get a chance to showcase your achievements, relative experience, services and your skills. Don’t give your introduction in such a way that explains you as a person. Explain yourself as a professional. Be Trusted, Be Authentic Fiverr does not share your personal information with the buyers. So don’t be shy to connect your Facebook and G+ accounts with your Fiverr’s profile. It brings in the element of trust and authenticity. Moreover, try to keep your average response time as less as possible. It encourages the buyers to contact with you. Why? because it gives a buyer an idea that when could he expects the response from you. The online world is too much scattered and everybody is so busy. So the buyers don’t wait too long for a seller to respond. They simply skip one person and hire another. How could you keep the average response time less? Enable the desktop notifications in your Gmail account setting. If somebody is shooting you a message. It will also be dropped into your email. So let the Gmail notify you. Download the Fiverr’s app in your smartphone and take your business everywhere you go. But the story doesn’t end here. To keep your business alive, a well-crafted Fiverr’s profile alone will not help. You also need to have a strong and healthy relationship with the buyers and the communication is key to have a good relationship with the buyers. In the next post: To cut down the whole discussion. In short, an optimized and professional profile is simply your chance of becoming a successful Fiverr Seller. Originally published on a Technism blog by Aamir Khursheed.
