You are talented, I checked your gigs. I like your portfolio. I’m actually an artist too when I have free time and inspiration, I draw paintings.

Something I noticed is that 2 of your gigs look very similar.


Your first problem is that all of your gigs are basically the same. That’s setting you up for most, if not all of them getting taken down. You can’t make multiple gigs of the same service.

If you want results, you need to make a variety of gigs that offer different services, primarily in niches that are not over-populated. Portraits are super popular, so you’re competing against thousands of other gigs that sell the same thing. That’s going to make it super difficult for you to be seen amongst the competition. Try to branch out a bit more, and don’t be afraid of offering specific services. I find the more specific a gig is, the better success it has, as opposed to gigs that cover a wide variety of services (aka “I’ll draw anything” types of gigs).
