How can I optimize my gig to find first order?

I am a new seller but I have skill on search engine optimization & social media marketing. Please tell me how can I impress buyers to get my first order ?

You must surely have thought of this already, but the obvious answer here is to use your SEO and social media marketing to market your gig, thus demonstrating to your potential buyers that you know what you’re doing.

I can only echo @catsquirrel: as a self-proclaimed person of skill in SEO and SMM, surely you can rub together your abilities to show buyers just how good you are?

You’re basically asking for tips on how to do your job while seeking paying clients. I think you need to do some more studying. If I were considering hiring you and I found this post while doing due diligence on your through Google, you can bet due to Fiverr’s high PR, I’d find this post and…

…I’d continue the search.

So, first point of order, delete this post. Second point of order, go read the mountains of blogs and help available for free. Third point of order, when you feel confident in your skill set, come back.

P.S. never admit you’re a newbie, big up your past success. Again, you want to impress /buyers, not whip out the begging bowl. If you don’t have any, make one. Create a crappy niche site and SEO/SMM it so it’s got a great ranking and whatever else you want to show off. Sounds like too much work? Perhaps, but you’re building a brand you want to last a lifetime. It’s not rocket science–it’s what your skill is. Isn’t it?

Perfect logic and more helpful writing. You have much experience in fiverr.

@rehmankhan113,

You should have started your own topic about this.Wathever, I had my first order in exactly 2 months after I started. I guess I was lucky because I did nothing but wait, and I somehow got it.

A common problem to new members like you is that they don’t get any buyers. Here are a few reasons:

• There are a lot of gigs offering the same services as yours
• There have better advertisement
• You are not active on Fiverr

If you want to get some orders faster, here is what I do and I recommend you to do too:

Once your gig goes live, if you don’t get any orders, update your Gig in every 2 weeks until you get an order. Add better, modern-looking images and video if possible. Once you edit a gig, it will disappear from the search for about 24 hours, but you have a chance to get it in front of other gigs once it appears again.

Apply for buyer requests, they may bring someone to you. If you tried and never succeed, here are some tips on how to make your proposals work:

Here are finally some more of my favorite, (probably the best), tips on the forum I really
recommend:

If you still have any questions, instead of asking, you could just type it in the search bar of the forum. There will probably be someone else who asked the same question before you.
