Writing Gig Descriptions

Normally when you are asked to post on Fiverr or Fiverr type sites you will also be asked to write descriptions.

99% of the time you will be posting books, so that is what I will focus on. Otherwise instructions should be included in your email.

When writing these descriptions you will be advertising what the book does rather than the book itself.

As an example, we will look at a book I have on Fiverr called “Managing Stress.”


I will sell you a book on dealing with stress for $5. NO!
I will teach you to manage your stress for $5. Yes!

See the difference?

Another example, for my book on google adsense.

I will give you a report to help you make more money with Google Adsense. NO!
I will show you how to make more money faster with Google Adsense. Yes!

Use words like: help, show, teach.

If you still aren’t sure, feel free to email me.


I think the easiest way to show you what I want out of a description is to show you examples. Here are links to a few gigs posted by a former VA.
