Every new seller like me is looking for his gig rankings and orders. So, when we search for how to get more traffic to your gig, one of the topmost recommendations everywhere on the whole internet is that “share your gigs on social media”. but but but, here are my thoughts that why sharing on social media will not work even it may harm your gig. If I’m not right please share your thoughts too.
#1) Nowadays, almost everyone knows about freelancing platforms where they can get quality work at cheap prices, then why would they ever prefer to get their work done through social media. And the people posting for work on platforms like twitter are usually those who want their work done for free and secondly if a potential buyer doesn’t know about Fiverr then he is never going to buy your gig just by clicking your link, in this case, he would first research about Fiverr, open his new account and then possibly go out to some other decent seller instead of you.
#2) when every seller hears that he should share his gig on social media, he starts sharing his gigs on every platform, almost every seller starts doing this and hence they form a pool of shared gigs on almost every post and at every potential buyer post. So, no one is going to click your link from a pool of so many gig links.
#3) Now just imagine if a seller shares his gig on a (so-called)Facebook gig promotional groups where people would click on your gig to give you more clicks and views then wouldn’t it negatively affect your gig as all those clicks resulting in zero orders (as their purpose was just to click not to order), which Fiverr system will take as a bad gig which failed to attract buyers and eventually Fiverr will more de-rank your already un-ranked gig.
Please also share your thoughts too. and also share some tips to drive solid and worthy traffic to your gigs.
