I cant get a sale


#1

I really cant get a sale, promoted on my instagram, my gig have had 100 views and 50clicks last week but I just cant get a sale.

Gig: https://www.fiverr.com/instagram_so/shoutout-you-in-my-caption-on-my-instagram-picture

Anyone have tips for me? Is it to expensive?

Given that you haven’t established a reputation on Fiverr, you have few reviews and no level, you’d probably have to offer a great deal to get a $10 sale. Social media gigs are plentiful although many aren’t good gigs. It looks like your $10 package is nearly at the “sample” stage unless you had a strong reputation here. I don’t buy or sell in your category, but that’s my take based on what I’ve seen.

Dear Gavin:

I took a quick look at your profile:

Your profile image: Is arbitrarily weird. If you’re not happy with your results, try a standard, “Hi, I’m a professional,” straightforward image of your smiling face from the front, with no tilts.
Your log line – note the edits: Successful Social media influencer with over a million followers

One “l” in “Successful”. I find your log line to be uninspiring. I suggest you come up with something new.

Your profile text: No suggestions. Kudos on the proper spelling of “successful” here.

All your gigs should have video, 3 images, 2 pdfs, and so on…

Make a video of yourself talking to the camera, because this approach garners IMMEDIATE RESULTS. Include additional samples in the video!

As Maddie indicated, as a New Seller, you should price your gig at $5. Until you make it to Level 2, your focus should be on building your reputation with solid reviews, rather than on making the big bucks. I mean, what are you planning to do with 10 WHOLE DOLLARS, ANYWAY?

Your use of the term “shoutout” is ageist and probably works against you. Your gig title should probably have more keywords. My advice is that every Seller should offer a $5 product, even if their focus on Fiverr is offering services.

You should look into information marketing.

There’s an old saying: “Give a British ex-pat living in Greece a green pepper, and you’ll feed her for a day. TEACH a yadda-yadda-yadda how to GROW green peppers, and she’ll be SICK of green peppers in no time!”

The moral of the story is that teaching is more helpful to your Buyers than shouting out at them on Instagram.

I’d rather know how to replicate your success on Instagram than have you shout out at me on Instagram. If you can’t write the book, hire a ghost writer on Fiverr and offer that as a gig, like: “I will teach you how I became a successful social media influencer with over a million followers on Instagram”.

Having your name on the cover of a book that you offer on Fiverr will show Buyers that you are an expert in your field. Don’t worry about people reading your book and bypassing your gig. They’re more likely to buy from you if they feel they know, like, and trust you.

Finally, it seems odd to me that I should be in a position of recommending this Fiverr transcript to you, but there ya go:

Good luck,
