With all disrespect, but you say that you have skills for gigs on driving traffic and then you say that you created a gig that didn’t get much traffic. Not to be rude, but you probably should look in another direction indeed.
On the other hand, it’s a funny thing that (instead of the how-do-I-make-sales-post) we now seem to have a bunch of posts asking how to dream up a gig. At a certain point every seller had that situation where he was wondering what gig to create.
What I wonder about lately is this: why would anybody tell you what gig you should create, rather then creating the gig him or herself? I don’t see that happening. I can’t imagine that somebody would think about a gig for somebody else to publish.
If I have an idea for a new gig I really wouldn’t think a nanosecond about giving it to somebody else.
