In your profile, try and include your work experience and a proof of your work. Do that for each gig you create in fiverr.
This is the essence of what we’re joining fiverr to share our expertise. You begin to create gigs. With a single fiverr account, you can create several gigs.
All you nedd to do is to create a gig that can deliver it in time and meets the customer expectation.
In your gig, you’ll need to include the following:
- Your banner image: this image should probably be one of your work. And should be related to the gig you’re creating.
- Include some samples of your work. This is a great selling point.
- Write brief of what the gig is all about. State your price, the delivery time and the incentive you have for clients.
But because we’re discussing about digital marketing, you’ll need to have a followership to even offer such services.
Market your gig
At this stage, your gig should have been ready. But no one will know or even when they do, they’ll be few. In other to increase the chances of people finding your gig, you’ll need to market your gig.
Since you’re offering a digital marketing service (s), that should not be an issue on your part.
However, here are some of the ways you’ll need to market your gig:
Get orders for your gig
When you begin to get orders, you just have to swing into action. Making a great first impression is key to having great reviews which brings in new customers.
But orders don’t just come after creating your gig. You’ll need to promote your niche and have some positive reviews to build confidence and trust. To do that, you’ll to move to the next step.
Promote your gig
Chances are you may have plenty of gig similar to your gig and the client will begin looking for gigs with reviews and think this gig is the best. So what do you do when you don’t have a review?
Follow this step to get one and you’ll have your reviews.
Step 1: create three different fiverr account.
This account should have different different username. Once you have created the account, then move to the next step.
Step 2: buy your own gig
Using your new accounts, log into it and buy the gig you’re offering. To avoid the usual suspicion, ensure that you use one account per day to buy the gig. That means, in three days, you should have gotten three people that have bought your gig.
Step 3: Confirm the gig
Now log into your account (the one you’re offering the gig) and confirm the three gigs. You do not need to do any promotion in other to confirm it.
One thing you need to note is that the money is still coming back to you at the end of the day. So it’s a win-win situation.
Step 4: write the reviews
Log into the three account you use in purchasing the gig and make a positive review. It means you should have gotten three reviews.
In the review you could include things like:
- Fast delivery
- I will buy again
- Boost my sales or increase my followers
You have the reviews, now what?
Well go ahead and begin to promote the gig. Relying on the traffic that fiverr will bring will not be enough.
To get the ball rolling fast, you’ll need to promote your gig. You can either use paid or free methods of advertising, but ensure that it’s a targeted promotion.
You cannot get customers if you’re promoting your gig to the wrong audience.
For instance, if your gig is about freelance writing and you’re promoting it to people who’re looking for graphic designers, the outcome of the advertising will be little.
So what are the best ways to promote your gig?
Several methods are available for promoting, but the obvious ones are:
- Social media marketing. You can use social media (facebook, instergram, twitter, reddit etc) to begin making the promotion. You can share with your friends and even use the paid advertising to reach more people.
- Email marketing: if you have an email list, then this is a great way to begin the promotion. Send them an email to market your gig. This method is pretty effective because the audience are targeted.
- Pay per click (PPC) advertising: You can use google adword or any of the PPC network to promote your gig.
- Other platform you can use include forums, guest posting, paid advertising.
More tips on having more customers
- Ensure that you stick to the date you promise you’re going to deliver the job. Any delay might bring in bad review which could affect the gig from having future customers.
- Do not create many gigs because you want to make money. Instead create the once you know you’re good at and you can deliver on time.
- Offer a money back guarantee to all the gig you’re offering. This way customers will have confidence in you and because they know you’ll do an excellent job and thus will hire you.
Well as good as fiverr is, you may find competition and success may come gradually. You should not expect to make instant success in the short term (if you do, then congratulations). But with consistency in promotion, you’ll build your customer base easily and fast.
