How to get jobs from a freelance site Fiverr
Fiverr is a genuine Australia-based freelance site. You can open the site both from laptop or mobile. Both worked perfectly. You can do this on the go while waiting for the check-in to happen in the airport or while commuting. You need to create your own.
3 easy steps to on Fiverr
Go to become a seller after registering, you can find this on the extreme left in your name sub-menu once you click on your name icon.
You can opt for graphics & design in the category section. In the GIG METADATA select Business Card. Select file format as PDF. In search, tags add relevant tags like digital Business Card. You can insert up to 5 tags. Best to start with the Basic package and describe what you want to do and what is your delivery time. My recommendation is one day.
You can also insert standard and premium package
Minimum you can pick is $5, for basic and increase the rate to $10 and $20. You can go up to $1000. You can do design variations and no of revisions. You can add extra services, etc.
Insert your description up to 1200 characters, which will make a difference so spend some time crafting an excellent description. You need to sell your services here. Write with splendid colours. You can add your own FAQ. It is better to insert to give it a professional touch.
You can insert your requirement from buyers like 50% advance payment and client details, which you require making the digital virtual cards. Add a disclaimer to maintain confidentiality. If you are the first time, preference is not to ask for advance payment.
After this, build your Gig Gallery from the sample you prepare. Do not add a sample from google download, etc. You can take help of your friend, who is good at design, otherwise, follow the steps.
Now, you need to find the background relevant to the profession like a restaurant, furniture or spa business. I pick Spa as an example here. You can download the free relevant background from the canva.com site. Sign up free with Gmail account. Search for the vertical business card.
For example for Spa, I selected below. Do not change the size to make it free. Download as PNG only not as PDF.
Now insert this background image from Canva to your blank template of google slide.
Your digital card will look like this after you insert the above images,
Now, link the Gmail and all social media to make it clickable
Code for Clickable Email Icon:- mailto:email@example.com
Code for Clickable WHATSUP icon:-https://wa.me/XXXXXXXXXX (type WhatsApp no of the client here)
Code for location: Google location from the Google map
Now you download Xodo PDF Reader and Editor for making the phone number to be clickable. This app can do this. Now, send the template to your email and open the template Virtual Card template with Zodo app
Code for Clickable Phone Number Icon:- tel: +1 (000) 000–0000 (type phone number of the client here)
Now, edit phone icon with client phone no.
Similarly, you can do this for all other social network sites.
Now, you made your first virtual business Digital Card. Congratulations!
