Attempting a new way to Market?


#1

Hey all,



I’m just starting out on Fiverr. I’m still below level 1, but I’m really enjoying the website. I’m attempting to drive more traffic to my gigs by offering a “sale” today. I’ve got the day off, but I’m ready to make a few bucks on fiverr, so I’ve lowered my delivery time to 1 day and changed my title to read:

"I will create a Whiteboard Animation ///TODAY only 12hr delivery for $5"

Has anyone else tried this, or does anyone have any tips to boost sales for a day or two?

I’m hoping this will drive sales. I will be reporting back later tonight to let you know how it went.

Rob -



By its nature, Express Gigs get that nice colored tag that attracts more attention on the list of gigs. If you’re willing to keep it that way for a while, then you may see a jump in interest. Good luck!

Just sold 2 gigs and delivered in an hour. I was messaging back and forth with the customer just before I decided to create the express gig. So, I don’t know if this really counts towards an increased number of sales due to the “Sale”.

Hey Rob, I actually started a forum post asking experienced sellers to offer new sellers some tips. Check it out at http://forum.fiverr.com/discussion/comment/19941#Comment_19941



Like @thetravelwriter said, once your gig becomes an express gig, you will see more sales as express gigs have a section all their own.



Good luck and keep working hard on Fiverr. You’ll get there sooner than you will think.

Very cool.



I didn’t get any other sales beyond the 2 that I got. I do imagine that keeping the express gig tag on your gig for a while would definitely help.



I checked out that thread and I did find some nice tips. Thanks!

So, I think I’ve figured out a way for this to work.



I recently received a large order for multiple gigs. I made sure to update my gig to 1 day delivery and update my title to include "TODAY only / 12hr delivery"



When I finished the large order, and was given positive reviews (10 of them), I believe my gig jumps up higher in the search queue. Now, that my gig has jumped up higher, I’ve been getting orders fairly steadily now.



I’ve received 1 an hour for the past few hours.



I will update you guys when the day is done.

Very nice. Congrats!

Reply to @triple_rrr: That’s great news! Thanks for keeping us updated! :slight_smile:

The initial boost to sales happened right away.



I got 3 orders in about 3 hours. I have been averaging only about 1 a day. So, there was a bump, but it didn’t seem to last.



I’m going to keep it at 12Hr Delivery for a while and see how it goes.

I was doing really well, with at least one ordr every few days now i haven’t had any in about aweek frusrtrating!


#11

The express gig is seriously nerve-wracking! The countdown is looks foreboding lol.


#12

The express gig is definitely nerve-wracking. But it helps to keep me busy!



I’m starting to pick up some serious steam.



I’ve gotten an average of 8 orders a day since I’ve changed it to 12 hour delivery.

Most of my sales come from sellers ordering multiple gigs.



I’ve started to include a pdf document with links to my other gigs and a link to a Tips gig. We’ll see if anyone bites.
