    I tried fiverr 3 days ago and got 144 traffic and 6 sales, since then 1 view 0 sale, i got 100% positive and expected more sales but up to now there's no sign of it. I searched my gig through my keyword and not even on the frst 5 page even though my gig is somewhat unique and only few are offering it.

    Any thoughts what could have been the problem? anyone experienced the same?

    Thinks that's what generally happens on fiverr - new gigs get found in recent, after a few days you drop off the map.

    Solution: create many gigs and they'll all get that initial publicity.
    Then create several accounts each with several gigs.,.

    You get the idea.

    ask people to like your gig. as well you buy your own gig from fake accounts and give positive feedback.

    After the initial honeymoon in fiverr, the marriage starts.

    You have to drive traffic and do all the hard work yourself to keep your gig alive

    You really need to encourage ppl to review the gig as well - and encourage return business - offer extra for 2nd/3rd orders.

    Can you not aler the gig slightly so fiverr does not see it as the same gig?

    If not then yes make some new accounts: just get a catch all email (then you can register with an unlimited amount of emails), and add these emails into your paypal profile so you can give a unique payment address for each account.

    Only issue then is managing all the accounts, but what I do is keep a text file with gig, buyers name, account name, delivery date etc - then keep em all listed in date order so once gigs are set up, you know when they are due for completion.

    You should also put your gig up on fiverr-like accounts so you don't have your eggs all in one basket

    Also when you get your first order you have to that person some goodies if they leave good feedback.. I right this

    "Thank you for ordering this gig, I have finished the backlinks.
    If you leave this gig some good feedback I will give you an extra
    20 backlinks for free."

    BOOM!! Good feedback

    If you can then offer them the same gig again for free if they leave
    good feedback..
    good feedback sells gigs:)

    Such a simple trick and it never crossed my mind. Appreciate it mate!
    Not all my gigs' customer left a feedback. No thumb down, no thump up, nada. I'll give this tip a shot right now. thanks again

    Soon it will be 5 years to wait for Fiverr staff to review your gig

    I never have to wait for my gig to be reviewed - I think that it is certain works
    it your title that raises a flag..
    If you get "gig is in review" just rewite out the the same gig again and try not
    to used the asame words.
