Video Transcription: signing up to become a seller on Fiverr is pretty easy this video is brought to you by Appy Pie’s Academy if you're not sure how to do that I'll show you right now so this is a dummy account you see my account on my actual Fiverr account I'm already a seller so I couldn't show you how to become a seller there because I'm already that so I made a dummy account just to show you so here I'm like a beginner Fiverr person and for everybody who's only like a buyer you have this option on top become a seller you click that become a seller and they show you this page you click become a seller and then you go to continue to all the steps they give you a little bit of training what makes your fiber profile successful like putting your name and your face there with the picture taking and not the time to create a nice profile making sure you're credible by putting your links on your profile I'll be showing you how to do that throughout the course but they also want to make sure that you know this then you click continue now they also tell you what not to do this is important like don't provide an email misleading information and maybe the most important one don't request or take communication or payment outside of Fiverr they really hate that and they will come down very hard on you now a lot of Fiverr sellers do just that we're going to talk about that because it's a big part of Fiverr fiber prohibits that sellers go around this it's a big issue on Fiverr we'll be talking about that in the course but at the moment take what they say as 100% truth you want to be very careful of going around Fiverr especially when you're just starting out because if you get warnings you'll get banned and all your work goes to nothing anyway you click continue here so basically you just learn what it takes to be successful now you click continue then you provide your name profile picture description languages you speak I'll do this with you just in case that you're confused about anything you'll know what to do so your first name should be your actual name I'm just going to put mine not actual name because because this is a miaccount then your picture then you put a picture a professional one of you if possible then your description there's a minimum of 150 characters to 600 character so you can't write too much what you want to do is say like I'm an expert in logo design or whatever you're doing right I'll make this a little bigger for you so I wrote a basic description like 10 years of logo design web design this is completely made up I don't even know how to design logos but this is just to give you an example for how a professional one would look like so like 10 years of logo design and web design obviously that would make you stand out if you just learn how to do this yesterday that would not be so great you can still put that there but ideally put your best skills and you can say you have experience working for startups or fortune 500 companies and you specialize in some specific skills because people might see that then you give English like in my case it would be English just because it is English and you say proficiency fluent and you add that and then you just say continue your occupation so let's say in my case would be graphic design you would take whatever that you want to do here this would be where you appear in the categories you worked for and then you say you did graphic design for like let's say a couple of years or maybe because you want to stay consistent with what you wrote previously there you want to say like maybe 10 years and you can add new skills like occupations different but we're not gonna do that here and then you can add your skills like let's say design graphic design design expert and then you want to add more skills and more skills we're not gonna do that here just because there's no need for that but you can you know they'll they'll give you suggestions you can say w Photoshop expert ad right so they'll give you more skills and you can keep adding the skills education same thing so let's say Bachelor of engineering San Jose State University graduated a million years ago and you want to add that and all your other certifications and everything like that personal website you can say that if you don't have one that's out that's also ok it could continue and here they're reminding me that I needed to choose two to five things so I'm gonna choose maybe flyer design as an additional then I'm gonna click Next then you want to connect your social profiles you don't have to do that but it's good to do that especially if those social profiles display your skills for example if on Twitter you talk about design and it's all about design then connect your Twitter but if on Twitter you're talking about your favorite sports team then there is not a really great reason to do that then you want to click Next you have more of a chance to fill this out later and then you say continue to the next gig and that and in my case they're saying well it's like 30% complete profile so here's what I have to do connect your social networks confirm your phone number and provide your certifications so I'm gonna go back and and do that in my case I don't want to connect my phone number because obviously this is not a real account I'm going to use so I'm not gonna do that but in your case just go through the steps and then go to creating the next gig and throughout the course I'm gonna be showing you what to do when you are creating your first gig so we'll pick up from there.
