Do not send template responses when applying for gigs or you will be ignored. Instead, make sure you understand what the prospect needs and provide some details on how you will specifically meet his needs.
If you don’t have any reviews yet, explain that you would normally charge more but you are submitting a low bid because you are working on building up some reviews.
Do not underprice yourself (especially once you have some good reviews). The cheapest freelancers and the most expensive freelancers usually get ignored. You want to be somewhere in the middle, at a price that makes sense for the value you provide.
Several years ago I used to get a lot of clients by offering gigs on Fiverr. I’ve even done some Fiverr jobs fairly recently for past customers who reached out to me.
I started on Fiverr with a $5 gig...I was building entire campaigns for people for $5 (minus $1 that went to Fiverr)
Obviously I was not making money doing this, but I was focusing on delivering value, getting reviews, and eventually started charging enough that building the campaigns was worth my time.
The main thing I focused on was getting clients for ongoing management services. I still have some of those clients to this day, but I eventually stopped Fiverr. Even though I had a team responding to the messages and helping with 80% of the campaign setup work, it became a low-value use of my time.
The biggest problem is that EVERYONE wants and expects your help (you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince). The percentage of customers who became clients was very low (it's a big jump to go from a $100 gig to a $2,000/mo management plan).
I believe freelancing sites can help you get experience and clients if you have the time, but they are something you can and should graduate from.
