    Hey guys, I'd really appreciate some feedback.

    I'm a freelance graphic designer and I've recently been trying
    to drum up some more leads for my business. I've just set up a gig on fiverr and since nothing is really
    happening i was hoping i could get some feedback from this community.

    here's the gig www.fiverr.com/desy_designs/do-2-logo-designs

    any ideas why its not converting ? Any help is appreciated.

    It's not really inspiring. There are thousands of logo designers and most of them on ffiver. All I see is a bunch of generic logos and three packages. It feels like all you care about is getting my money. I don't want a 24 hours turnaround, I want someone who will take the time to investigate my business, create some drafts, discuss options and then design my logo.

    It not about speed and cost, it's about the quality of service. Forget SM services, letterheads and business cards. Focus on logos and show me high res examples of work you have done for real people.

    I'm not suggesting you don't do a good job. It's just that none of this comes across on the ffiver page.

    If you do invest the time on each project don't offer a 24 hour turnaround.

    Me offering a 24 hour turnaround is as a result of the fact that i'm just starting up on fiverr. Now would you patronize a seller with little or no reviews on fiverr. So i see it as more of an incentive

    Well instead of Fiverr you can also contact the statup business to give them logo design services. You can register yourself on the business listing websites. Well there are other sources to for getting the leads for business, you can try other freelancing sites like upwork, guru where you will definitely get the business and hoping all good.

    Show me the work you have done for real clients. Don't offer the three packages, instead make a big play on your understanding of how to create the right logo for a business.

    Try Upwork and Guru and find more jobs there and also create sum social media account to get traffic from social media.or you can also join communities share your links. there is also paid services like PPC or Ads on Facebook.

    That's not going to work. People browsing ffiver are scanning dozens of logo designers, they aren't going to contact you to see examples of your work.

    Put the examples on the page. Then in your blurb you can write about a couple of them.

    The video you uploaded for your profile isn't really helping. It sort of contradicts the reputation that you want to build. The opening is too generics and poorly done. Try editing your video to showcase your portfolio right away. The people viewing your profile already know why they're on fiverr looking for a designer. No need to remind them of the reason why. Take those few precious seconds to show off your skills right away.

    I suggest that either promote your Fiverr page on specialized Facebook groups, for example on groups with people that want to hire freelancers or make an account on Upwork and start bidding. As I know, Fiverr is the same as Freelancer in terms of new freelancers, if you're new to these platforms, is not gonna be easy at all to have a gig.

    To increase your sales you should focus on your content part as well because to target your customer you should know, which type of content people wants to read and what is the requirements in present market and what you are providing to your customer at affordable price.

    Second thing is learning, because if you stop learning in any stage then people can’t achieve success in their job or business. For example - In the era of technology if people not update their self then how can you expect good sale?
