Anyone seen this Fiverr ad?!

Hey!

I had been watching a few vids on youtube today and noticed that somebody has used Google Ads to promote themselves on Fiverr!

The username of this person is cyandelmarco, it seems interesting that somebody would do this... but I clicked like 3 times and each time it just linked me to the Fiverr homepage.

Maybe a bit of a waste of money? I cannot see how she must be making more money than she spends, got any ideas on why somebody would do this?

Interesting

    See whether if she lasts for a few days with the Google Ads, and report back.. If she did, then we got a case study to learn

    I will pay her a $5 to learn her Google PPC campaign secret

    Good job on the seller behalf to increase his sales.

    And if the media ad produces profits, then the cost of marketing is not as much as others might think...

    And if the person doing the ad used their own time to promote themselves, where is the cost beyond time?

    Someone was dogging me just today for wasting my time in a forum making a post, but the post in question has already put money in my paypal account. :rolleyes:

    Perhaps the user made a mistake sending people to the fiverr homepage instead of his/her gig page. Yes, that would be a huge waste for that user.

    However, it could be fiverr, itself, doing the PPC campaign.

    Fiverr you sly dog you. PPC is the game they have gotten into and they are very sneaky about the way they have done it. I mean, look what is has caused......a thread in the top Internet Marketing forum.....hmmmmm....nice little fringe benefit.

    I have never seen it that way!

    So, do you think that this user is a randomly selected one or is it one that was in some way special to Fiverr?

    I clicked on the you tube ad to take me to the gig. Funny thing did happen on the way. It said that they were no longer a member anymore. Well, that was sad as I did want to order the service. FIVerr maybe was not happy we can guess.

      For some reason that always happens when you link a gig.. Try typing in the username into the search on Fiverr, that is what I did and I found all of the users services, some very popular with 15+ FB likes but some nothing...

    I'm thinking it would be a good way to promote their gig if that gig takes them 5 minutes to get done.

    Maybe it is Fiverr itself doing the PPC ads. Members may have signed over certain rights to use their pages/name/image to the site when joining...or it may be a mystery of some sort?

    This is great way to promote your gig but how did she get along with this?

    In my opinion that was a good strategy from her point of view.

    And Fiverr don't need to go for PPC themselves. The site is very popular.

      The Fiverr seller is NOT buying Google ads. Fiverr is. They're using a variety of pictures and sellers in their ads. Why? Because they're trying to grow the business.

      Using your logic McDonalds would never run TV ads because they're already very popular.

    I think it's Fiverr itself that buy the Adwords, don't think anyone will buy Adwords to advertise their gig.

    Fiverr now is also trying to scrape traffic off of the clones. If you put in any of the top ten clone sites like "Uphype" or "MyCheapJobs" for a google search, you will see Fiverr has purchased the top spot with the landing page of:

    /The_Original

    funny. Good for them.

    I'm thinking that they have actually hired a good marketing person. Most likely they realized the "Hey this site is cool" factor has worn off and they need to start marketing. Most of the traffic I get (and I get a lot) has never heard of fiverr

    Ok lets look at this.

    For every fiverr sale ...

    Fiverr user makes = $4

    And Fiverr the business makes = $1


    Now seen as though there are probably 50 fiverr sales a second, of each and every day and 24 hours a day. (dont quote me just a guess)

    They have some serious capital to play around with advertising.

    I am suprised you do dont see them advertising more via paid media. ????

    PPC and paid media buys work.

    Well Celente, you never know what the true profit margin of a dot com is until the company reveals all expenses. Nobody knows for sure what their profit margin is

    I tried to find out more on cyandelmarco. Like is this a real person we can talk to, or a trick of some kind. There are zero orders in queue and the ad is all over the place.
