I have a gig that I had set the price to $100 but decided to switch it to 5 dollars so I can gain some reviews. Does this strategy used often and have good results?
Depends if you stick to 100$ and you receive a bad review you won’t feel as bad as receiving a bad review for 5$ … don’t sell yourself cheap , on the long run it’s not worth it . It’s just an opinion
The wording of your post title is really misleading. If you actually offered someone a huge discount in exchange for a review (honest or not) you will likely get a warning from Fiverr. If you just lower your price in hopes that more people will buy and leave you a review, then it might be fine.
I’m hoping to get some sales. I also don’t want to break any fiverr tos. I hope what I’m doing is not against any rules
There are two type of customer here,
One that looking for quality and understand your value, and the others just want simple task.
If you drop your to $5, you will complete with thousand of seller with same price, and people won’t be able to know wether you got more value or not.
A gig that normally costs $100 - you’re dropping to $5? That’s a really substantial drop…
I tried to search you on fiverr, but you’re not showing up.
Curious, what type of gig are you willing to drop your price THAT much for?
Web developing, design and SEO.
Curios to know what search term you used to try to look me up
Oh I see, well someone would sure be getting a great deal if you’re good at it!
Just the username you’re using in here
I also am not able to find my gig from the search
I found you now… typed it manually into the address bar
Unfortunately, that has been broken for a long time. I’m sure it’s on the staff to-do list, but it’s low priority.
I still don’t see it
as a beginner its not a bad idea , i recommend that start with 5 and when you complete lvl2 start increasing the price
