11 Fiverr Gigs, 800 views, 0 orders! Wow!

by supersonic 51 replies
I started around 11 Fiverr Gigs on different subjects, If I do calculation, then I can say that I got around 800 views on all of them. But still there was not a single order. Any idea, guys!

    Fiverr is not a way to make a full-time income. It's a way to make some extra money.

    Some gigs can be hit and miss.

    The best thing to do is to do similar things that others are doing and are obviously getting a lot of orders. That's what people want.

    Then, do a good job. Preferably, your gig is a small part of a larger, more expensive service you can offer. Then, once you get some repeat customers and customers that keep coming back for your gig, you can just mention offhand that you can do more for them, if they so wish, at your site and just show them your site where you have a larger service for more money or even set a free blog or something.

    What are your gigs, though, if I may ask?

    If you are willing, can we see a link to your listings or at least describe the listings?

    I've ordered a few things from Fiverr. I read through a lot of listings to find a good deal from a seller I believe will deliver. I once ordered from a person who had a listing sitting dormant for 5 months and the service was great.

    The common denominator is your gigs. Look at what is selling and try to adapt to it. People are seeing your gigs and looking elsewhere, so you have to present them in a different way or approach from a new angle.

    Hard to say without seeing the gigs. I order a fair amount of gigs on Fiverr and I want to see samples of the work, I prefer a gig track record... yes, I know it's a catch-22 for new fiverr peeps.

    If someone's description is right on the money, meaning I can tell they know what they're doing from the way they wrote the gig description, then I'll hire them even if they have zero gig track record.

    Boils down to your description IMO, so I would suggest you go back and look at your gig description.

      Social marketing is saturated so you really have to offer quite a bit to make sales. Why buy exposure to 7200 people, well over half of which are from non-English speaking countries, when you can get 10000 for the same price and likely get better results? Gauge your competition before trying out a gig.

    First of all I know now it's likely not you in the picture you have up here on Warrior Forum in your avatar.

    You are from India,according to Fiverr, and obviously some of your gigs don't use correct English. Nothing wrong with that and nothing wrong with being from India but at least I know that guy you're using in the picture really likely isn't you!

    I think all of your gigs are too vague at what the real benefit is, and I would suggest you look at what gigs are selling and see if you can offer something similar.

    I would not buy any of your gigs as I now see them written. The benefit of you suggesting your page to a bunch of friends is just not really worth it. It likely will not give much in the way of results.

    Again, do some research on fiverr to see what's really selling and try to pattern yourself on that.

    I looked over the gigs as well and would not purchase any. The best value gig you have is installing Wordpress for someone. Managed hosting is expensive and a very useful service. But Fiverr is not the place to sell such things.

    The other gigs you offer just don't have much value to me. Maybe someone else disagrees?

    One of your gigs is rather questionable: make a pen drive bootable? Pen drives are innately bootable given the right motherboard bios, so is your job not actually doing anything? I assume you mean "Teach people how to load linux live cd distros onto a bootable pen drive". Those are two completely different things.

    The gigs I buy are artwork, video work, and copywriting. If you can do any of those you should definitely advertise them.

    I got about 300 views to my first gig in about 2 hours, but no orders during these views. I got my first order 2 days later, when I had about 350-370 views on my gig.

    Just keep promoting your services and I'm sure you get the first order very soon.

    EDIT: And add more images to your gigs (preferably custom made by yourself) and try to keep the images HIGH QUALITY. Most of the images on your gigs are truly blurry and low quality at the moment.

    I did one today, voting up twenty pages on StumbleUpon. My most popular gig is I will share your site with my Facebook, Twitter and StumbleUpon followers. I would suggest making many gigs, which are easily verifiable, and good value for money. If you claim to offer too much, people don't believe it. Writing articles, social promotion, likes, diggs, tweets all seem like popular gigs, if you offer good value.

    It depends on what your service is.

    I have just 2 fiverr gigs, and I have already got more than 50 offers. But as someone pointed out above, better provide your services in Odesk or Freelancer, they are better places of getting a good income and establishing yourself.

    Fiverr is just like an ice cream once in a while.

    The best option to get loads of orders is to offer EXCEPTIONAL service. When someone orders from you finish the job as fast and as good as you could. If you offer exceptional service to the buyer, then buyer usually comes back and makes more orders.

      I checked out your gigs and most of them look like they're not more than 24 hours old...??? Not sure if that is because you changed them or what.

      Anyhow, I think your lack of success with Fiverr is probably because you're targetting services that are simply not great sellers. Sort a catagory by popularity and you'll get a better idea of what sells well.

      My conversion rate is somewhere around one sale per 20 or so views. But then again, I'm not getting hundreds of views so... just sayin'

      For me, Fiverr isn't really a sustainable business model but it's nice to make a little money with it and help people out. Just be careful that you don't wind up agreeing to do thing too far above and beyond. It's easy to want to be helpful and wind up getting taken advantage of.

      Good luck!

    I'm new to this forum but certainly not to fiverr. Have you checked your stats under each of your gigs. Is there a demand and/or are the competition getting orders? If they are then you'll have to tweek your advert to make it look more catchy and remember you can capitalize one word on each gig to make it stand out.

    you can use a trick to catching: add a bonus to your offer.(a free ebook or something )

    Your Title + "You'll get a Free ebook/gig/ etc"

    I saw another minor mistake in one of your gigs.
    "I will give you a 97 dollars worth ebook to add 5000 Facebook friends in 7 days only for $5"
    I think it is better to rewrite this title in: " I will Show You The Magic Formula for 5000 Facebook Friends in just 7 days "

    Another problem is the lack of testimonials. When someone wants to buy a gig in a certain category, He filters the results by popularity(or rating). If you do not have testimonials you can not be one of the first gigs.

    Write a compelling description.

    For beginners will be very difficult because the competition has grown drastically. A new gig will not succeed in front of a gig that already has tons of testimonials.
    For intance:this gig http://fiverr.com/users/alanletsgo/g...ref=glst-g-ttl
    is successful because it was one of the first gigs in this niche. It has an addition to other gigs.

    • One of the best marketing techniques for a Fiverr gig I've seen is really simple.

      Before committing any money, you tell this seller exactly what you need done. He does it, while locking the content so you can't just take it and run. If you're happy with the way it turned out, you buy the gig.

      Everybody's happy.

        Sorry but I think that sounds like a horrible idea.

        To do all this for a $5 gig?

        Must be joking.

        Just go for gigs that have great feedback, and if you want to take a risk on somebody new, just take a risk on them. It's only $5!

        And for gig sellers, just make a video explaining your gig, videos help to sell your gig, in the end.

          I don't mean to get into an argument with you, but if you're making no sales at all, spending a couple of minutes mocking up the work the customer wants may be worth it to a seller. Getting those first few feedbacks can be hard.

          It's only $5 but many people are hesitant. Nobody wants to get ripped off.

          And as for great feedback, the highest feedback seller (as far as I can tell) on Fiverr rips people off every single day. He represents his SEO gig as something it is not, and adds volumes of off-site disclaimers which many people never find or read. Then he mocks them when they leave negative feedback.

          Many Fiverr buyers don't know they don't have to leave feedback immediately. It doesn't seem to be documented anywhere what the time frame is, but I have left feedback for a seller as long as four months after the gig was completed. But since they don't know, they often leave feedback immediately, long before they could possibly know whether or not a backlinking gig has yielded results. It's very much a hope and a prayer.

            I agree sellers can do that, that's why I always read the feedback very carefully. It's about the best metric somebody has, though. Have you ordered that SEO seller's gig? If possible send me a PM, interested in who it is.

            I just wouldn't do that mockup, but I suppose if someone was desperate they could do that, but I think there are better ways such as simply showing an example of your work through a video, or just sending a file to someone with an example of your work. Yeah, can still get ripped off that way, but if I was a seller, I wouldn't waste time on a mockup somebody may or may not pay for, as buyers can be flaky.

          I totally agree. And at the end of it all the seller only gets $4. For all the time that I put into my gigs, I don't get that much per hour. To do a mockup for every gig would be ridiculous.

          I really think the samples showing off what you can do should be enough for $5.

      I would try and get a real life person to purchase your fiverr, like ask a friend with a blog if he would buy from you on there. That way you can get a positive review and more people will buy your services. Why would I buy from you if there is someone with the exact same ad, same price and he has 20 positive reviews and you have none?

      Also, your traffic is from India, I don't think most people are interested in India traffic except those with websites and offers that cater to the people of India. Which I don't think is the largest portion of fiverr traffic (although who knows).

      I have bought traffic from fiverr, but only from those with positive reviews and I wouldn't bother with India traffic for my sites. my 2cents...

    I have only 4 gigs - but I had the same problem as you - some views but no orders - for me it was because I didn't describe it well enough - I changed the description - and had 3 orders... but for the other gigs - still nothing - which leads me to believe the situation is like this : either you compete in high volume gigs but you add a twist - or you go for really low volume gigs - but then if someone will search for it and you and perhaps 3 or 4 other gigs would fit - then you have 30% chance of an order - I think it's much better than the 800 views with no orders... but that's just me.

    Hey, Check out a couple of the other sites similar to fiverr like:
    tenbux, gighour, zeerk, gigbucks, uphype and fittytown.

    I have never used any of these sites besides fiverr, so I'm not sure of how good they are. Do your research. But get out there in more places. Business is all about marketing and advertising. And them more exposure you get, the more cash you can earn.

    Keep posting more gigs and get creative with the titles. Its most likely that you are not a top rated seller. Its a little bit of a catch 22 because I only buy from top rated sellers on Fiverr.

    Have you tried anything away from IM? I put a silly horse racing system I use which potentially makes around $400 per month! A silly little past time of mine in the past! I didnt expect anything from it as most people want IM related stuff but after the initial week I was quickly getting about 10 a day buy my my gig! Moral of the story is dont do what everyone else is doing, there are some huge niches out there away from IM such as Health and Fitness, weight loss, gambling, gaming, golf, quitting smoking etc, yes there is not as many people visiting fiverr for these sort of things but the competition is very low!!! just my two cents!!
