How do I get views on my fiverr gig?

27 replies
Hey guys, I've been in IM for a while but haven't really done much with fiverr (I've bought plenty but never sold).

I decided I wanted to try my hand at fiverr so I created a header creation gig (the one in my signature). I copied the tags and wrote my description/title based on a high ranking gig.

So after I posted it, my gig got 10 views (a couple of which were from myself) and since then it hasn't gotten a single view in like a week.

Is there something I'm doing wrong, are there "fiverr ranking factors" I need to know about. Do I need to build backlinks to my gig? O.o

Thank you in advance for your help

      I know you won't make big money on fiverr, I'm just trying my hand at it to see if I can manage to make any money.

      My gig is a banner/header creation gig (the one in my signature).

      I have looked around the forum, and there's plenty of people asking about fiverr, but I haven't found any asking about the specific ranking system and how fiverr goes about giving traffic to gigs.

    I haven't done anything with fiverr ... but I'm guessing you'll receive more action & traffic from fiverr once you have sales. Getting started is harder, but you can do that yourself by advertising your services. Write guest posts that lead to your fiverr service. Buy solo ads. Do whatever it takes, don't just rely on Fiverr traffic showing up miraculously overnight to your service.

    I don't know if this still works but once upon a time I misspelled social bookmarking and one gig popped up - he had the misspell in his tags. I imagine he got some orders off that. It's not going to make you rich but if there is a common typo in your niche then you can try adding it in your tags and might snipe some sales out of it.

    You'll earn $3.92 for a $5 gig, and you will not have access to those funds for 14+ days after the gig is marked complete.

    Have you used the promote button next to your gig ? It allows you to post on Facebook, Twitter, or email to your list. I change up the text on mine to make it more appealing.

    The hard part of doing gig in fiverr is its first gig. Once you get your first job and good feed back, you can do more job in the future. For now, you should focus on promoting your head line. Put your best face in the photo avatar. And once you got your first gig, treat it like your last job before pension.

    I looked at your gig.

    There's nothing really wrong with it but there's nothing that stands out, either.

    I didn't like all the MMO and Forex banners. They give the impression that's the kind of business you're looking for. Plus, the video has the call to action (Order Today!) in the wrong place. You're asking people to order before you've done a job of selling.

    When you're just getting started on Fiverr, your offer has to be fantastic. Offer two banners for a limited time only, and don't limit it to one revision. Realistically you can't limit it to one revision because if the customer isn't happy, they're going to ding you and ask Fiverr support to cancel the order.

    Put up a profile picture, preferably of you. Personalize your gig description by telling a little about yourself. You now have 1200 words to play with, use them.

    When you've got your gig polished and ready to go, here's how to promote it:

    Hi Matt:

    First work on getting up to level one. It is easy. Need to maintain a 4.0 or higher rating, plus sell ten gigs.

    Second is make level two, but that is not so easy. Need to maintain 4.5 or more. Also, you must sell 50 gigs.

    Here are some tips to help you sell more. Find a hot new area. For example, creating white board videos that are max pop. Have a bunch of active gigs. Do not have just one. Support 4K video as that is the standard now. Add videos of yourself and samples of your work for people to see.

    RECAP
    • hot area
    • add videos
    • sample work

    If you want to make some impressions for your GiG you can do safe lists. But I only recommend you to do it just to get impressions, you are not going to make sales from it.

    Safe lists are sites where you can sign up and make credits by reading other emails, with the credits you have you can send emails as well, other people will read it to make credits as well.

    There are different sites for safe lists, just use Google to find them. You need to create 1 or 2 Gmail accounts, do not use your main accounts because you will receive a ton of spam so create 2 separate because most of the sites require 2 Gmail accounts.

    This method will help you get noticed with impressions but remember, no one will be buying from you, they just want credits for more emails.

    Hi, it's been four years since the original post. I'm guessing you found what you needed?
    I would love to hear how you did with your Fiverr ventures?
    I don't see any mention of your gig which makes me think that you ditched Fiverr?

    Here are some tips:

    - Make more gigs
    - Offer gigs in other categories
    - Drive traffic from outside of Fiverr
    - Offer a money back guarantee (sounds weird but it works)
    - Offer a valuable bonus for everyone who buys your gig
    - etc...

    Instead of just depend on fiverr, be pro-active and start driving traffic to your gig

    getting of the ground is the hardest part as you know, at first maybe offer a crazy deal like 3 for the price of 1 you need some good feedback.

    2. Get your gig out on social media.. open new account and start to follow people that may need your service.. then you can post tweets etc.. also post to groups or local biz pages on facebook..

    you need to promote hard to start

    You'll have to promote your gig, just like a website/blog... I commented a lot on various blog posts related to my gig and I scored some traffic there.
