    I am based in ****** and I want to Start a site like fiverr over here.the market is growing and there is not much competition for IM. People just dont think you can make money.


    Anyway I have been advertising on FB and on Gumtree in the job section.

    and talking abt it to people. its taking off slowly.

    so whats other ways to promote that would help gain more buyers and sellers?

    Incentive based offers to make people join/Give them a reason to join example: Join today and get $5 free to spend on services. Or even: Sellers pay no sale fee's for 1 month

    Or use Google adwords and run a campaign through that.

    But regardless it will be difficult to compete as there as soo many around. Hope you have a deep wallet

    Mailing lists are good, social networks are your best bet as they get more visitors per day than any other site/ search engine. I use facebook for all my advertising and offers and they do well.

    I guess since you don't know how to promote, you are not really experienced, Fiverr alike sites are very hard to promote, you need to have a big wallet, and as ahiddenman said, you have to offer free $5 to spend for starters.
