You should see the different options and your competitions because, yes, there are a lot of other profiles on Fiverr besides yours, and you should be able to stand out from the crowd.
Look for the profiles that offer the same service as you do, and look at their gigs, what they offer, and what the pricing is; this will give you an idea about your pricing. On Fiverr, you will notice that there are some badges’ top sellers, or bottom-end sellers’ this is determined by the amount of work they have been given, draw the differences between them.
Your gig is your number one ally when it comes to having orders… It is not the sole way of gaining orders, but it is one among the top. So, you will have to work on that to attract clients.
You should include; what you offer, your price, a brief and concise description of your services. You want to think about it well before publishing to avoid scaring away potential clients.

You will need three things to set up your profile; your description, price, and images. If you are good with editing images, you can do it yourself, or else you can hire someone to do it for you.

You can add different things that will attract clients, for example, fast delivery, error-proof, extra revision, etc.

This is the sad part of Fiverr, especially for those who just started… So the best thing you could ever do is go out and get these reviews. Yes, you’ve understood it right; YOU will need to find clients at first…
You can find clients on the ‘community boards’ of Fiverr, this is where buyers normally post what they are looking for, and sellers make their offer. This is a good way of interacting with different clients; even if they dodge you, it is not a problem; at least you get to witness what a seller-buyer interaction looks like.
After some time, when you are done completing a few works, you should find a way for these buyers to come back to you. It will help you generate the three R’s of Fiverr; revenue, reviews, and reputation.
Some sellers offer attractive packages, you should ALWAYS deliver quality content, and you may even re-contact your old buyers.
Keep in mind that Fiverr measures everything, so if you want to be a top seller, you should answer your potential client promptly and complete work during the deadline set. This will grow your account, making you one of the ‘Top sellers’.
