    Hello fellow BHW's, I'm pretty new as you can see by my join date but thanks to BHW I already have several ideas that I will implement soon, to hopefully earn me a solid income but I need money to start these. So i thought to myself why not crack the fiverr market with some SEO gigs? Well as you can probably guess I didn't get a single order on any of my gigs.

    What i did: I researched the competition and offered more than they did with things like pinging the backlinks, videos and still fell short with like 20 views before it stopped and no sales.

    What I have: Scrapebox and SEnuke X

    I'm really determined to crack the market and make some money using Fiverr but I'm just having trouble getting the first few sales to start getting more attention.
    I was just really hoping that some fiverr experts could give a newbie some advice or even help me formulate a solid gig. I don't mean to be rude in asking but i've read some of the help threads on here and it is really motivational as this is a great community.
    Thanks for reading this far I hope it wasn't depressing.

    I've read a lot of these threads like this one and usually people get a lot more feedback, maybe you just missed the fiverr experts. I wish i could help but i'm a fiverr noob, sorry.

    Offer bonus, over deliver, be polite. For start give 2-3 times more then it's real worth and when you have 10-15 positive reviews or more make the offer as usual BUT still give them bonus. Don't give ebooks as bonus because fiverr can ban you, you can give them some tips, places for high pr backlinks, over deliver something or give something similar to your service.


    Offer a service which people will buy it when they will see it.


    Another tips:
    1. Add a professional image in these dimensions: 380x265px and make sure you can read it from the other side of your room.
    2. Add a custom made video (or buy from fiverr)
    3. Use the keyword few times in the description
    4. Advertise your gig on facebook,twitter,social bookmarks and forums (don't shit where you eat = don't advertise here except you pay for it).
    5. Analyse your competition, offer more.
    6. This is risky but it can bring you some costumers. Open some of the gigs from your competition and write to their satisfied costumers, offer them more. However you can't write on everyone, just the people who ordered and have gigs online. Also don't over-do it because someone can report you and you can get banned.

    a site like fiverr is also based on rep - so have to lowball your services until you gain some sales

    I'm a seller on Fiverr for over 2 months now and I've made good $$$ so far.


    Some tips for Fiverr newbies to build feedback/reputation very fast:

    - Sell $1 Fiverr gigs until you get a good amount of positive feedbacks (10-15). How? Get in contact with potential customers on forums, facebook, twitter, etc. and propose them to buy your gig with a $4 refund. Let them buy your gig, ask them their paypal email, send the 4$. Easy way to build some reputation plus you don't need to invest a penny.

    OR

    - Create multiple accounts, buy Gigs of your main account and leave positive feedback, PLEASE don't be so obvious, leave a common review, don't exaggerate. You'll loose only $1 each time you do this but trust me, it will pay off itself later.

    Buying your own gig seems silly, just make sure you're going above and beyond with your product for the first ~50 sales then you can tone it down while Fiverr takes a month or two to upgrade you.

    Of course, you'll buy your own gig ONLY if you're 100% sure that your gig isn't crap.
