I am new to Fiverr and just posted my first gig earlier today. I am offering a proofreading and editing service.
So far, I have noticed that my gig does not show up at all when I search for it in the “Find Services” bar. I have also noticed that other sellers have had this same issue and customer support was able to fix this for them. So, of course, I sent a message to customer support asking them to fix this problem for me as well… I am still awaiting a response.
I have also made a post on tumblr, hashtagging many, many different things to advertise myself. I have considered creating a Twitter account and advertising on there, although I am skeptical of how much success I would have doing that. How successful have other sellers been advertising on Twitter? Also how should I go about advertising on there if I do not personally know very many people that use Twitter?
Just searching around for any tips on how to get my first sale. Advice is appreciated.
