Can social media promotions make a big difference interms of getting more sales?

I don’t think so, mate. I’ve shared my gigs many times, but since people don’t know you, how are they gonna order?

@benmakerr The point of Social Media promotion is not just to promote yourself to people who don’t know you. But to your friends, and by extension, their friends. Have your close friends like and share your post and comment on it, vouching for you and don’t forget to engage with the comments, answer questions, let people know what Fiverr even is. A lot of people might not even know what Fiverr is, so make sure to explain it, explain what you do, explain how you can help people who need it. It’s just like any other social media marketing item, just instead of a product, you’re promoting your Gig. Hope this helps! :grinning:

Yes if you know what you’re doing. If you don’t then save your friends from uncontrollable spam and hire a professional to reach out to your target audience.

However, if you don’t have financial resources to hire a professional then try to find a different way to advertise your gig. It’s not like you can hire someone from Fiverr for $10 to generate leads for you. You have to invest much more than that on regular basis. It won’t be one-time thing either.
