    I have posted approx. 8 different services within the last 12 hours and have had no orders so far !

    Anyone else had any success ?

    It all depends on the service you have to offer. What types of gigs were you selling? Try to do some research around Fiverr for offers with plenty of buyer feedback, as this means it's been bought plenty of times.

    As soon as you find the types of offers that sell well, try to make yourself a good unique offer that you think others can't refuse. Just make sure it's work you can handle doing if you get orders.

    Some people have had orders within their first hour and some people don't get anything for a few days. Finding the types of gigs that sell, making them somewhat unique, and making quite a few gigs but not too many to manage is the key.

    Also, try promoting your gigs a bit, because the more traffic, ratings, sales, and feedback a gig gets, the more it will be exposed to people. Hope that helps

    I signed up yesterday and have had 6 orders placed so far with only 3 gigs so again it just all depends what you offer.

    Fiverr is getting saturated now. More and more sellers coming into it and buyers ratio getting reduced resulting into less orders!! :)

    For me it's been pretty good, about two orders per day averaged, and that's over 5 services. Took me about two days to get an order and it was the one I almost didn't offer because I didn't think it'd sell. It's now my top seller.

    I offer stuff that people know they should do for their website, but's easy to put off. It takes very little time for me, so it's a slam dunk. One offer is a video, takes 8-15 mins to shoot, 10-20 mins to edit in Camtasia. The service itself is neutral, but could easily lead to an upsell if the buyer is interested (most have been at least curious). Another is basically submitting a few online forms (10mins tops).

    From the feedback I've gotten for all of my Fiverr gigs, I'm putting out a quickie report to sell on DP for ~$5. :D I'd be happy to sell a couple dozen for a few hours worth of work.

    Some of my Gig have flopped, but I've also had a lot do well. I'm convinced that it has a lot to do with the keywords that you use.

    For instance, I take a look at the "popular" and high ranking Gigs and i duplicate their keywords. I do it even if the Gig has nothing to do with that.

    This won't necessarily get you orders off the batm, but what it will do is raise the gig to the front page and get you more views which will then result in more orders.

    I have 20 Gigs going right now, and only 4 or 5 get orders on a daily basis (or every other day on average).

    Also, if you have a Gig up and it's not performing and it's got no views after a week. Take it down, reword it, and put it back up again. That sometimes works well.

    I have made over $80 on fiverr in the last month, so I know it works. Just keep posting gigs with the right keywords and you should make money.

    Fiverr has gone down the pan since about a month ago when it has been started to be discussed on this forum!
    Move on...

    I thought you said in contrast to Fiverr as its a Fiverr thread. That's why i got confused!! ;)

    Yeah....these are many fiverr clones coming in the market like gigbucks and the ones you mentioned!!

    Fiverr continues to deliver for me, I get new gigs every week from it. Please try select a HIGH demand gig, and try to market your gig page, since the page views will translate into more gig orders. And experiment with the new clone sites (which haven't worked for me so far, no gigs), until you find additional winners to complement Fiverr.

    You have to try different things, and when you find something that works, repeat it. Another thing I do is look at all of the popular Gigs and copy the keywords. I then use some of those keywords on all of my Gigs, whether they are related or not.

    This will increase your views, and keep your Gig on the first 3 pages.

    After the Gig falls back past the 4th or 5th page, your orders will drop off.

    Another tactic is to set up the same Gig numerous times, just reword it. For example, I've found four Gigs that were popular that I could copy, and set them up 5 times each, wording them differently.

    I get on the average 8-10 orders every day with this method.

    Now, for high demand Gigs. They are:

    • graphics, headers, ebook covers, anything photoshop
    • seo, linkbuilding
    • traffic
    • social media
    • web design, squeeze pages
    • article writing, press releases
    That's where I get most of my orders. I've also done well by getting a bunch of MRR squeeze page packs and Wordpress themes, HTML templates, etc, and selling them in a bundle as a Gig.

    Had one of those Gigs that got 11 orders in one day a couple of weeks ago.

    So, Fiverr isn't bad if you know how to work it.
