Luckily, Fiverr’s search is still treating me pretty nicely, but ever since they made those drastic changes over the summer (which unfortunately brought down a few Level 2/Top Rated Sellers), I’ve decided I need to put effort into marketing so, just in case Fiverr does another overhaul, I’ll have alternative sources for clients.
Last week, I paid $20 to post a classified ad on a business/SEO forum. So far, no sales have resulted (that I know of), but I have been contacted about my writing and editing services since then, both directly and through Fiverr.
I’m still learning…
One thing I’ve learned so far is to use a trackable link. Even though I knew how to do this, for some reason, I chose not to. A few people have started their message with “I saw your post on [so and so]…” but there’s a chance I’ve talked to other people who saw the ad and didn’t mention where they came from.
So, the lesson of the day for me: When advertising, take five seconds so you have a way to track the results
