Hi, It was so fast when today is march and I’ve joined Fiverr for ~6month with 100% 5-star rate, 200 order completed and I found 1000$ for 1 week working. And today I would like to share with you some of my own exp.
When I was new, I saw some great seller have only 1 gig in their profile and he/she is top rated seller. And I saw people with many gigs have the same problem: They have 1 main gig and many sub gig, the main gig got a lot of sales and sub gig got few or no sales, why?
In my opinion, Fiverr got this cool thing you have to learn: You will get “wet times” and “dry times”.
“Wet times” is you will be busy in a bulk of order, you have to work 7 days/week and from the beginning of the day to 2 am to solve all the order.
“Dry times” is you have free times about 10 15 days with no sales, even 1 months with no sales. That made you so confused and ask yourself is there something wrong with your gig?
Nope, there nothing wrong if you are selling good then met Dry times, nothing need to change, just w8 for the wet one :D. Sometimes the whole category is drop sales like you for 1 month. So don’t worry about this one, when you got dry times, just training yourself better, this times is so priceless for you to training.
I found one key point to get sales on new gigs is: When you create new one gig and it 0 sales. Then a buyer coming and want to order your gig. Just throw a custom offer FOR YOUR NEW GIG ( the gig got 0 sales). No matter its suite or not.
Example: They order infographic gig, you just throw any gig you would get sales with it, such as your new one: icon gigs example.
When you done your order, you a review in this gig and 1 sales, this is a critical key to getting more sales in your new gig. IT WORK!!!, then several day later, you will get new order on icon design :)),
I currently work on many gigs: infographic, icon design, redesign layout document, business card, chart/graph etc…
And all of them all got sales. This is great when your infographic gig got dry spell, but your icon gig is in wet times, cool right? Then you will busy all the times and draw more money.
Try to spread your gig into many categories, cause sometimes this category dry but in another one is wet, who know :D.
One last thing: Make your gig sample the best design you got, this is main key point.
