Your profile description is the last section that a buyer sees before placing an order on Fiverr. And this is why your Fiverr profile description is important. But most sellers write it in the wrong direction.
In this post, I will show what you should write in the description and what you should not write. Also, I will give you a sample description, so you can write the best profile description on Fiverr.
How to write an outstanding profile description on Fiverr?
There is a 600 characters limit for the description. Also, most of the buyers don’t have the time & energy to read the whole.
So you have to grab their attention from the first letter.
What should you write in the description?
- Explain how you can help the buyers.
- Explain how you helped other clients in the past.
- Mention only one field that you’re most experienced at.
- Introduce your name.
- Tell them to ask you questions.
I will explain why this pattern is important for your profile description (very soon).
What you should not write in the description?
- Don’t write too much about yourself and your experience.
- Don’t use the word “I” more than 1/2 times.
IMPORTANCE OF THIS PATTERN
Buyers come to a seller to solve their problems.
And they want to know how you can help them in the first place. So, highlight the topic first that they want to know about.
Protip: Buyers don’t want to know your name at first.
They are curious to know how they can be benefited from spending their money. And they are not curious enough to learn too much about you.
Protip: Write how you helped other clients in the past. And they may think that you can also help them as well.
Many online gurus may differ from me but it’s the real fact that I learned hard way.
Many people will tell you to highlight your experience, but it does not work well.
Most freelancers on Fiverr, already have written that they are experienced and this approach became generic. Most buyers don’t trust it.
Protip: Mention only one field that you’re the most experienced at.
If you’re done thus far, introduce your name. But don’t use the word “I.” You can introduce your name differently.
Protip: “You can call me John” instead of “I am John.”
Some clients may need additional pushing. And this is why the call to action comes into play.
But on the Fiverr profile description, there is no way to insert a link or button.
So you have to accomplish this step with questions that may encourage the buyer to contact you.
Protip (sample question): Do you have any questions? If you need more inspiration, see these questions for buyers.
