Newbie questions about getting first gig


Hi All!

I hope this is the right section for this post, if not, please move it to where it belongs.

I just recently set up my first Fiverr gig - creating Kindle ebooks for indie authors. I’ve been promoting my gig as much as I can via my Twitter account (I have a few hundred followers) and various forums I belong too (no spamming, of course), yet I’m hardly seeing any activity as far as page views goes on my Fiverr gig page. No orders yet, to say the least.

What else can I do to increase my chances of getting that first order? I know the first order is probably the hardest to get, but we all have to start somewhere. Does making gig videos really help get orders? I also thought about giving away a free ebook dealing with Kindle publishing as an added bonus for customers. Would that help?

Thanks for you input!
