Just to let you know, customer service is about as official as you can get. If I were you, I would except CS as very high on the Fiverr importance scale. Just saying.

I just started the Promoted Gigs yesterday after being invited. A message showed up in my notifications and I also got an email.

To be honest, I wasn’t sure about this new launch but the best I can do is try it so I can give it a legitimate and honest review.

I attached screen shots of the notification and email so you can see what it looks like.

I was also invited to create a Fiverr Studio which I am creating now.

Some things are a mystery in Fiverr like who gets invited to these programs and why some people don’t.

All I know is your professional communications are watched and so are your - not so professional- communications.

It’s like I always believed that my mom had eyes in the back of her head because somehow she always knew what I was doing lol!

Well Fiverr is the same. If you keep everything squeaky clean and professional including all communications, your gigs, your portfolio and the way you reach out to inquiries and customer service then hopefully it is just a matter of time and patience.

If you have met the requirements for any of these special Fantastic Fiverr Favors (I call them) just continue to do good work and don’t worry about it.

They are Fantastic Fiverr Favors because they are helping you and holding the door open as a favor. But who wants to extend a favor and open the door for someone who complains all the time. You would rather help people who are nice and appreciate the help.

Just my thoughts.

Hi Melissa,

I think what I said has been misinterpreted a little. I never questioned the importance, or officiality of Fiverr Customer Support. But I’ve had many personal experiences over the years, of different Customer Support agents interpreting the same rule in very different ways. I’ve literally had different answers, within the space of a few hours, from different agents, and that’s happened on numerous occasions, and regarding well established practices.

My comment was in reference to a CS agent promising a new seller that Promoted Gigs would be available to everyone soon. This seems to go against Fiverr’s methodology in rolling out Promoted Gigs, and certainly wouldn’t make much business sense (giving a brand new, un-vetted seller the ability to promote their gigs to page one is a recipe for disaster).

All I was saying was that, until I hear that from an official channel (like a press release, an update on the relevant support page etc) that I wouldn’t guarantee on this being 100% accurate.

Super awesome Idea. I liked it but it might not help me because I have just started on fiverr.

Thank you for clarifying that. I know it takes time to sort out your thoughts and I appreciate the professional manner in which you did so.

Sometimes even top-rated sellers with excellent reviews need a little assistance getting their Gig in front of new buyers. Why? Because there’s tons of amazing talent to be discovered on Fiverr.

But there’s the “Best selling gig sorting” available, which should show those top-rated sellers first, as they are top rated for a reason. Except the best selling sorting has not been working for a while, and is like recommended sorting instead.

Might the reason be that no more free visibility is being offered for performing amazingly good, but you now have to pay to get those impressions, no matter service quality? (Except to meet the minimum requirement for being able to promote, which is ridiculously low)

And as the promoted gigs feature is not available in every category, at least those categories that don’t have it available should return to the old gig sorting, which actually shows best selling gigs when sorting by best selling.

Informative but very tough for a new seller

It’s mostly about the badge I think. TRS seem to get invited to most things first. eg. Promoted gigs, ability to be a studio leader etc. They are also much more likely to get the “Fiverr’s Choice” badge (despite level 0 being the most common level, you’ll hardly ever see them with that badge).

Have you checked your impressions and clicks? Fiverr has so many search algorithms that it’s impossible to know exactly where you show up. Just because you search doesn’t mean it’s not appearing for someone else.

Good Advice. As a newbie in Fiverr, I will try to follow the instruction in the future.

So after about 5 days of being on the promoted gigs, I got a message that I could promote an additional gig. So I added another gig.

After starting the promoted gigs I have about 65 impressions, 15 clicks and no orders from the promotions. However, the promotions can be on the same page as your organic impression so I think it gives the orders an increase just by your gigs appearing twice as much.

Some gigs literally 4-5 on the first page.

I have never scene the AD badge anywhere on any gig though that is still a mystery. Does anyone have a screenshot of that?

It makes me wonder who are the people clicking on the Ads? They must be new buyers who don’t want to take the time to search properly for what they need.

Just wondering what other seller feedback is.
