You might try visiting the Sellers Forum and learn how to promote your Gigs and other success tips from your fellow Sellers. You can find the forum at this link: http://forum.fiverr.com/categories/tips-for-sellers. Good luck!
You could set up a facebook, twitter and other social media accounts and direct traffic to your gig that way. Social media is a job in and of itself but I think it’s worth it.
