Today I’m going to show you exactly how to promote your Fiverr gig.
It’s really hard to get started in Fiverr when you have no reviews that buyers can measure you on.
In fact, this is the same process that helped top rated fiverr sellers to rank #1 from when they started out. The same process I’m following now.
Let’s get started.
- Diversify your portfolio
- Use friends.
- Create a YouTube channel.
- Create a Blog.
- Social media
- Find your niche.
- Build your brand.
Diversify Your Portfolio
If you’re struggling to get views it might be because you have only one or two active gigs in your portfolio.
It is a good idea to diversify your portfolio and create multiple gigs that falls in the same category, for example; classic logo design and retro logo design.
Both are logo design techniques, but they might resonate with different people.
The pros on fiverr usually cast a wide net to catch more fish and it’s still the best way in promoting your fiverr gig effectively in 2019.
By having lots of slightly different gigs you will quickly see which ones are not working by checking the clicks and views in the gig tab. If one of your gigs gets more sales than the other gigs than recreate that gig over and over.
Another excellent strategy to use is upselling your basic package gig ($5) and make it an extra on one of your medium or premium packages which is a good cross promoting factor.
Use Your Friends On Social Media
Everybody has friends and those friends have friends also.
Ask your friends to support you by telling everybody they know about your gigs. NB >> Personal or social media friends are the best promoters you will find.
Social Media Engagements
Interacting on social media works the same as commenting on blog posts and forums.
This is a manual process where you have to be active in the relevant groups you get on Facebook, Instagram and Linkedin.
If your gigs are still new you are going to need lots of engagements. Contact the group admins and let them know that you can contribute to the group with your expertise.
Just remember not to be that cheap salesman. You are in the group to help others with their problems they are having.
Creating A Blog
- Target Potential Clients
Decide who your audience is so that you can speak to them directly. Your blog posts are there to answer a question that people are searching for.
If you can help people by answering their questions and guiding them you will establish your name and they will start buying your product or service.
Your blog is there to give the relevant information about your service, but don’t make the mistake to sell yourself constantly.
- Develop a Community
You can grow a community around the service you provide by communicating with people. Commenting and sharing is a great way to establish rapport. Nurture the clients that you have because they are your best promoters.
- Leave Comments On Other Blogs
You can comment on blogs that are related to yours. When you leave a relevant and helpful comment, people will see you as an authority figure over time.
It is a great way to funnel potential client to your blog and ultimately your product or service.
Be sure your comment is relevant and do not put your blog or link in the comment. You will look like just another cheap salesman.
Ask the blog owner if you can link to your blog.
Posting On Relevant Forums
Posting on forums is almost like commenting on other blogs. Only post on relevant and high quality forums.
Forums can be the best place to get answers directly from experienced users like on the Fiverr forum.
Establish yourself as an authority figure and help people with their questions by giving them the best answer you can.
Quora Questions And Answers
Quora is a great way to answer questions people have. You can establish yourself as an authority figure in specific topics and send people (traffic) to your blog where you can sell your services to them.
Golden rule is to try to answer the questions the best you can even if you have little knowledge about the subject, try to figure it out and tell people that your learning this with them.
Creating A YouTube Channel
YouTube is a great platform to promote your services (gigs). You will lose out on allot of traffic if you skip this step. People like to watch videos more than reading how to guides.
Create a simple but informative how to video about your services on fiverr where you explain your gig and the benefits the client will receive once they buy it.
Remember, always try to answer questions people have and you will earn respect in your field.
Finding Your Niche
Creating a niche for yourself is more important than ever before. Fiverr’s main categories are very saturated.
Find your target group (audience) and see what they are asking for, look at their questions.
Go to google and type in your keywords about your service and look at the suggestions. These suggestions are search terms people type into Google to find an answer.
You can create your niche by looking at these google suggestions.
Look at the pages showing up when you searched for those keywords. Does it answer the question fully? Can you answer it better by writing a blog post about it and then send people to your gig?
Branding Your Fiverr Business
Once you figured out what your niche will be, you have to look at branding your business, your product or service.
Branding is important to show people that you’re a professional or very experience in your field.
Decide on the looks of your brand and design it. If you can’t design it yourself, you can outsource it on fiverr.
Put your brand on everything you own, for example:
- Your Website or blog.
- Your social media (Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin).
- Business cards.
Make it look professional to establish confidence in clients of your abilities.
Your brand is you, the way you design, write, comment, your likes and dislikes etc. People will get a feel about you whether it’s looking at your blog or reading something you have written. Make sure your brand is about you and your abilities and skills and you will do fine building your business.
