@vedmak I met another driver who believed so much in seat belts. He got a crash and died before I could say “gig”. I wonder why my eyes are different. They can pick out dry gigs from a distant…

The dryness of people’s gigs consoles me. The wetness motivates me.

I was wondering about dry periods myself. Does Fiverr have kind of a cyclical rotation of where we show up when people are browsing for gigs to choose from?



I’ve only been a seller for about ten days. For a week my gigs were on fire and every job I did received rave reviews. But now I’ve had two days of dead silence.

Reply to @thevoicemachine: That’s encouraging.

During dry period, I make new gigs at certain timing to get buyers.

Of course any old gigs I have that does not bring me any orders anymore, I delete it.



It’s always the newest gigs will get the most views.

I wonder how the editorial team picks gigs to feature. Is it all luck? I see new gigs at the front page sometimes and although they don’t have sales, I believe the exposure helps.

I’m a new seller here, so I’m clearly not an expert. But in my planning for the new gig I’m about to launch, I tried to work in a strategy for what to do when sales drop. Knowing what I do about my industry, that will likely be some time in the middle of summer (when people are more concerned about vacations than working) and the holidays (when people are spending all their money on gifts and travel and not their businesses). So here’s what I’m planning for those periods:


  • List-building (so that I can keep in contact with past and potential buyers to announce new gig extras or new gigs to them)


  • Staying Active on Social Media (regular posts to my blog and regular participation on social networks so that I stay on people’s minds)


  • Press Release (Slow periods might be a good time to add a gig extra if you have the ability to, or obviously to create and launch a new gig. Then you can put out a press release with a link to the gig page to hopefully drive a little new traffic.)


  • Bonus Giveaways (so I can entice those who might click on my gig by offering them a free bonus related to the service being sold)



    I think the second option will be extremely important, since everyone likes free stuff (that is, free stuff with some value). Perhaps you can offer the next 10 or 20 or even 30 buyers a free bonus. Then keep up with the sales that come in so you can create some urgency in your marketing as you get close to hitting the limit. I plan to do this starting out to hopefully boost sales since I’m new, but it will be limited to a certain amount of buyers. Then I’ll bring it back during the slow seasons to try and get another boost.

I go through periods of no orders then four or five of the same gig…i think its a random thing


#39

I freelance on other sites and manage some of my own websites.

Using Fiverr is FUN for me :slight_smile:
