Hello! So I tried out the Promoted Gigs feature and on the surface the stats look impressive, right? Wrong.
I’ve only had 2 clients who ordered my gig via the ‘Promoted’ feature. What’s interesting is that the tracker not only counts the initial order, but also ALL subsequent orders and tips as well from the same clients. This feels quite misleading to me as it doesn’t feel like an accurate description. It’s not a guarantee that a client will be a repeat buyer/or that they will tip, so is there a logic to this?
Here’s a breakdown of the 5 orders:
Order 1: $150 + $33 Tip
Order 2: $100 + $20 Tip
Order 3- $165 + $25 Tip
Order 4- $158 + $32 Tip
Order 5- $150 + $57 Tip
With a system where only the main order is calculated, the revenue would show $308. Even adding the tips, it would be $373. Including all orders, but not counting tips, it would add up to $721. Much less impressive than the $888 that Fiverr wants me to believe I made because of paying to promote my gig.
I’m a little uncertain how to feel about this, so do you’ll feel that this is justified or should they only calculate revenue based on the initial order? Would love to know your thoughts!
