    I've been on Fiverr for a few years now and am still at that state where I'm lucky if I get a couple orders a week. I've read tons of guides so I know the basics. I've got 20 gigs up and am working on making videos for all of them. One thing that I am currently working on is cleaning up my gigs, taking ones that have been sitting around doing nothing and replacing them with something else. As I understand it's better to focus on one particular area as opposed to having a bunch of random gigs. Though I also see the value of having a couple of those random gigs just so your name shows up in other sections.

    What I'm wondering about is if it would benefit me any to build a blogger blog around my chosen niche and link my gigs to it. I'm not sure how well that would pan out for me. I'd have to divert time and energy into creating the blog then getting visitors and then hope they visit and hope they buy. Any input on whether or not external promotions like that really help out or no?

    I've also looked into doing some exchange reviews but I really don't have a lot of money to just toss around. I realize that is a more solid way to increase visibility but it is still a gamble.

    Please feel free to have a look at my profile/gigs and shoot me any advice. (I'm more than happy to like/collect/favorite gigs to say thank you.)

    Best thing you can do for yourself is get your gigs up on the 2 biggest clones under Fiverr: SeoClerks and MyCheapJobs. If you are getting a few orders a month off of Fiverr I can guarantee you that you can get a few orders a week off of MyCheapJobs

    Here's the best piece of advice anyone has ever given me "Don't chase money, let money chase you"

    Once you understand that saying you won't need money advice anymore because making money will just be a natural thing for you.

    Your gigs are probably too spiritual and vague. People like to see results not being taught how to do this or that...
    It is clear you want to spend as little time as possible when working on your gig, but people don't like to buy them.

    You can try linkbuilding gigs... resell the 1 dollar products here: http://www.seo-prince.com/micro-jobs/

    That makes sense. I have been working on updating my gigs to focus more on services like writing and social media. In the past I tended to avoid the social media gigs just because of the overwhelming competition. But I read something that made a lot of sense. Basically it doesn't matter that I'm offering the same service as hundreds of other people, that means it's an in demand service.

    Another reason is that I rarely had the money to play around with reselling gigs. Giving it a shot now though.

    I think my theory is that I am aiming to have around 15 gigs that provide a service; views, writing, reviews, voiceovers etc. Then have 5 gigs that are random just to populate other categories and gain exposure.
