I know that many seller are probably wondering what the deal is with gig packages.
Fiverr promotes them and so do many sellers. However, there are also hundreds of negative reports from seller floating around the forum.
I first implemented the packages on my best selling SEO gig. I was very disappointed initially because my sales went from steady to nearly non existent. I was this close holds up hand showing very small distance between pointer finger and thumb to removing the packages and reverting back to my old selling format. However, I made the wise decision to not jump the gun, and to give the packages a little more time to root themselves into the aether.
After a fee weeks I begun getting sales, and while I don’t remember the exact order, there was a $15, two $20, and a $40 gig that all rolling in within a few days of each other. It is important to note that previous to adding the packages, I was only receiving orders of this size on an infrequent basis. The majority of my orders were for just $5. To receive this many large order is such a small period of time can only be explained by my packages.
It appears that while the packages did not increase my overall sales count, they did increase the average size of each order. Also, the buyers were all a lot more serious and professional, making the order process and lot more pleasant and enjoyable.
If you are trying out gig packages and business is a little slow, then don’t give up yet. I believe that gig packages can increase your revenue and decrease conflict between buyer and seller.
