    Hi,

    I just started with Fiverr from almost a week.

    My gig is creating logo's for companies/products in max. 24h.

    But...nothing...:(:confused:

    How do I promote my gig ?

    Please help !

    Thanks,

    Hi peterdesign;
    The first gig is always the hardest to sell! Why? Because people want to buy from a seller with good feedback, and unfourtunately until you first sale you wont have any!

    You'll need to spruce up your gig to make it stand out completely from the crowd and leave people no choice but buy your gig because it's such a good offer.
    Try creating more logos for the fiverr, make an online portfolio with blogger or another platform, make a video showcase (it can just be a series of your logos with some cool music), you've got to market your gig!

    If you want a quick way to do this, if you have two PayPal accoutns simply create another fiverr accoutn and buy your own gig! then you can give yourself 100% feedback and a very good comment. If not, get a friend to do this for you!

    Lastly, unless your close to the 20 gig mark, create multiple gigs for your logo business!
    Fiverr searchs are ranked not only by popularity but by date added, meaning that if you keep adding gigs, you'll stay at the top. Now this does have downsides, if you have multiple gigs you wont' get much feedback on each, but you'll be able to experiment with different titles, images and descriptions to find exactly what sells!

    Sorry for that massive essay, i wrote an ebook on it and really like Fiverr work!
    If you've got time to look its the ultimate guide to fiverr! ,

    I hope i helped you out ! :)

    You don't need 2 Paypal accounts to give yourself feedback. You just need multiple emails on the same Paypal account.

    Create 5 emails and add them to Paypal.
    Create 5 fiverr accounts using the emails you just created.
    Purchase your gig with each new fiverr account.
    Leave yourself good feedback.

    Sales will roll in shortly after.

    You can also create the same gig multiple times with different titles and wording. This really does help get more opportunities for sales and will cause sales to increase.

    Alsom you can sell with multiple accounts. Again you are just looking to get more gigs out there to help increase the chance yours shows up in the search results.

    I've used these methods for over a year on fiverr and I've done well with them.

    Do you have a portfolio of any sort? Most people like to see what you've done in the past to judge the quality of your work.

    Also, if you've ever worked with anyone making them logos, ask them to review your work and hopefully get some positive feedback or critique.

    If you're just getting started, put together a few designs and post them in a portfolio that you can link to, or make a post offering to do a few free logos for people in exchange for their reviews on here or other forums.

    No but in paypal you can easily add additional alias email addresses (in profile), that's how I do it.

    BTW another thing that helps gigs is if you have people "like" or "save" the gig from within fiverr.
    If you are interested in swapping likes PM me (I also have three accounts so I can like your gig 3 times if you do the same for me in return).

    Now I can't setup in fiverr the paypal account. I belive that after the 14 days(first withdraw) I could enter my paypal user .

    Now I put some more gigs,I just modify the text,title and the presentation image.

    I think that, with more gigs shown in the search, I have more chances.

    The problem is when I search for my gig, I can't find it...

    You are on the right tracks, when your gig is first entered into the system, you have the greatest chance of receiving orders because it goes into recently added.

    Normally the idea is that you make sure you offer great service, speedy delivery etc and you will get a few good reviews and that gets your gig rolling.

    However, if you're not getting ANY orders, then maybe there is little demand for what you are offering? Maybe search on fiverr and see what your competition is like - who is offering similar services, how many sales do they have on average?

    If they are making a reasonable amount of sales, then start a new gig and just offer a bit more than they are offering, then maybe include something even in addition to that and put in your description, first 5 orders, get bonus, so and so etc... - Its all about getting your rating up.

    Done that, I will add a few more gigs to every user.

    My target is somewhere...beyond .. 20$ a day :)

    I don't think it's impossible...

    step 1.
    create 2 more acc. on fiverr
    2.
    step 2
    make gig on those acc. too
    step 3 .
    look in right hand side , find people , and request them to order you....

    do the step 3 , twice on a gap of every 6 hour.
    its starting and you dont have enough feedback there...once u finish some orders, you will get orders....
    sending request to people is very imp.
    do that part and you will be find.

    Hey another thing you can do is.

    1. create another account
    2. change your logo gig to 30 days
    3. buy your own gig 10 times
    4. change you gig time back down to 24 hrs

    Now when people come to your gig they will see that you have
    10 orders in the que - Your gig will look hot.

    after 29 day mutual cancellation of your 10 orders:)

    Just create a bunch of similar gigs and promote all of your gigs with twitter. Create a few twitter accounts and follow a lot of people and tweet about your gig. It works very well

    I got one gig DENIED, I think that happened because I've multiply my gigs with different titles,content...

    The bad news is that the gig who got denied was my single gig with 2 orders completed 100% positive, and feedback. :confused:

    I don't know maybe I should try IM :confused:
