    I have been trying my luck on fiverr . I have some 3-4 gigs active right now and they all have 150+ views but no sales at all ! Is the first sale always that tough ? I have also been keeping an eye on my competitors and I am already offering much more than them ? Can anyone please suggest me what to do ?

    do something else, that shouldn't be a main source of income or something you check more than once a day. you don't even have to visit the site just check your email, they send you emails for everything, gig orders, gig success, gig cancellation etc.

    so just be patient and you'll get sales, and once you do get a few and have good reviews you'll get more and more, maybe a few a day.

    people love reviews.

    create fake another account as much as u like buy ur gig from it, and leave a awesome review.

    its as simple as this.

    lol no one wants to buy what you're selling then dude, check how old the gigs are youre competing agaisnt and how many review they have, if it's an old gig and theres little reviews, it's not popular..

    Get hot girls to hold up signs.

    I think Fiverr is really hit and miss. It's taken me about 20 goes i.e. creating 20 new gigs but I really only have 2 that make sales.

    Some sell some don't.

    The next step would be to try split testing headlines on new gig and or new tags.

    So all I can say is that Fiverr is just a numbers game. If your gig doesn't make a sale in its first week, it probably won't make one, so take it down (i.e. delete NOT just Edit) and create a new gig with similar but different title or a new one altogether.

    If you get a sale or a few then you can post a fake review (I haven't but if thats the way you want to go) .

    Just my 2 cents after earning about $500 from Fiverr

    I've earned $2500 since august with them. SEO stuff works well. Get some more fake reviews, like 25 or so and that should get you going but it does depend what you offer. Also, keyword your gig so you show up in all of the categories.

    You have to promote it,,, get some great reviews,,, give more value to customers,,, and grab the 'FEATURED LABEL"

    don't forget that too many competitors on fiverr

    Ok, got 3 sales today.
    I browsed other's gigs today and found out that some people are really using very creative tricks to attract customers.
    For ex- i found this gig which offered a list of 2million emails and provided free sample list containing 8k emails.

    Looks like there's not enough gigs on Fiverr, 3 or 4 is definitely not enough to compete with tons of other similar offer, plus the system refreshes frequently, so your gig would be buried some where down the toilet...:D

    I've seen that some people create multiple gigs for the same product. One guy was selling SEO services and had 15 gigs for the same service all written differently.

    yea, the provider does split test what keywords, title, picture, description works the best and/or bumped up his/her service 14 times :)

    Well for the past 8 months my team has a gross income of $23,000+ in most of the gig sites out there, Fiverr amounted 85% of these.

    This is due to their traffic.

    Secret is to have 5+ accounts all selling different kinds of jobs focusing only on 1-2 niche per account

    1 account on articles
    1 account on backlinks
    1 account on web design

    you know the drill


    max it all at 20 gigs or the allowable gigs


    if one account goes below 90% rating, kill it or just let them suspend the bad gigs

    make a new one and start racking up 20 gigs and soon you will be getting a lot of orders


    one of our best accounts gathered $8,000+ in 3 months with 2 guys working full time on the orders.

    its just a matter of time outsourcing this to a large group will surely benefit you.

    Remember you take in only below $4 per order, so if you take in a dollar each order from outsourcing your work then for $8,000 you get $2,000 a month of extra in your wallet
