Since a couple of weeks, and perhaps more, I have noticed a serious drop in my orders and thought that it was one of those low periods we all experience as sellers. I have learned with time that when Fiverr is tweaking and improving something, I have a low period with less sales, then it comes back to normal and what I do in the meantime is to promote my Gigs extensively. But this time, the drop lasted a bit too long to my liking, till ending to a complete standstill.
Worried about the situation, I contacted Support and among other things I was seeking help for I was told (vaguely) something that got me thinking and put together with comments I can read on the forum, it does make sense that Fiverr is now really trying to have us to improve our Gigs and take them to a higher quality standard… or burst. They seem to be physically reviewing every Gig and classifying them (that’s my feeling).
So, if you are experiencing a similar drop in your Impressions, Clicks, Views and Orders, then, you might find it useful to read what I have done to get my Gigs back (almost) on track. If you don´t seem to be affected (for now), your turn will come for sure.
Here are the few things I have done so far, and I hope that some of you will add something to it for all of us to benefit:
1 - Whenever the new Package system is made available to any of your existing Gigs, re-organised your Gig accordingly and as soon as possible.
2 - I reviewed my Gigs titles, description and tags and didn’t hesitate to make changes.
3 - For some Gigs, I changed the image to a better one, and added a video.
4 - Once done, I promoted my Gigs massively on social media (according to Fiverr, promoted gigs are 3 times more likely to sell!) to attract clicks.
5 - I am visiting the Buyer Requests daily to try to respond to as many requests as possible.
6 - You might have noticed too, that I am appearing on the forum and try to answer some of the questions with useful responses (and not just ¨great comment¨ or ¨thanks for sharing¨, etc…
7 - Then I check my Gigs activity every day to see if there is an improvement. Where there is nothing, I review again and make changes.
I have the feeling that Fiverr is very keen on us promoting our Gigs on the various social platforms and that we don’t completely depend on them to get us buyers. When doing so, make sure to include at least the #Fiverr as well as a few highly ranked hashtags.
I hope this will help a few of us and all additional tips are most welcome.
