    Just wondering if anyone has received a gig by using Fiverr to contact those who request a gig on the lower right hand side of the screen. I just contacted 4-5 people about their gigs in hopes to do them after seeing their requests and wondering if I have just wasted my time.

    I always contact buyers requesting a gig for SEO service. I used to get response most of the time. While contacting them I make sure that I clearly explain buyers about my gig and the benefit/bonus they are going to get if they order my gig.

    Sometimes I look through those requests and create a gig centered around what they want, message the person who requested it to alert them that I can provide it, and point them in the direction of the gig.

    More times than not it results in a sale and the customer was so happy that you went out of your way to personalize a gig for them that they scale up the order or buys another gig from you.

    Fiverr is a pretty good platform for getting your name out there and cultivating the image of being a person/company in a position of authority.

    The only gigs i had is the ones when i contacted the request makers, i think fiverr should make a directory alot bigger then the right side panel, then everyone could have the best service for hi cash.

    Yeah, most of those are outdated. A couple months ago I messaged quite a few from their, and most of them already got it done.

    same here. Either I don't get a response after creating a gig just for their request, or it's been fulfilled a week earlier. I think fiverr would be smart to include a bigger "wanted" directory.

    I had found this discussion in the Google search engine. I am new to Fiverr and was trying to find out if there is a way to look at a larger portion of the box that is being discussed here. It seems a bit of a shame that people are specifically looking for people to fulfill what they need and make it quite a bit harder for them to only show a small portion of what must have been submitted.
