I’ve attempted to send potential customers from outside of Fiverr, to my Fiverr gig. I do this because I believe the 20% they charge for maintaining a business site and handling transactions is well worth it. I would prefer to spend that time promoting myself.
Here’s where the problem lies. Every time I’ve sent someone to my gig by searching my moniker/username nothing comes up. Not only has my credibility gone kaput, but I’ve now put effort into cultivating work for someone other than myself!!! And having them find me with a filter is not the answer either.
Perhaps Fiverr doesn’t want us promoting our gigs outside of Fiverr?
