    Hey guys

    I've recently become a seller on Fiverr and am close to my first $100. However, I want to scale things up a bit as I think I can handle many more orders.

    What would you guys suggest I do to promote my Gigs? Would creating backlinks to them help at all?

    Edit: Also, how do some Gigs get "featured" status?

    The same way you promote anything else, except, you want short terms strategies instead of long term. So social sites like myspace, facebook and twitter will work great, but commenting to blogs, submitting to directories, etc will be a waste of time.

    I've been wanting to know about the featured ones also.

    To get featured, an editor has to pick your Gig. It appears as if being featured doesn't matter anymore though as they removed it. Now it's just popular, most rated and latest.

    i asked the admin, and he said that your gigs become featured because you get many positive feedback on it, and you promote your own gigs so they get more traffic.

    I just you several Twittter accounts to promote my gigs and one specific profile aswell, not doing bad with 5ver myself either since joining a couple of months ago. The jobs may only earn you 5$ but they only take me 5 minutes to complete so for me its worth doing as an extra way to make a couple of hundred $ a month!

    I had a look at doing some blog commenting / directory submissions or similar easy automated stuff for fiverr but there are tons of others and hardly any got any reviews. What is your experience, do you usually get a review after you 've done a job or do ppl on fiverr simply just buy but never post feedback?

    In my case all the people that I have done jobs for, have always left me an excellent review so my profile and gigs are marked with a gold star and 100% rating. But then, I did do exactly what I was offering.
    My only setback is that I have had a few gigs deleted as they mentioned the word "adult", but they took a while to find them out.

    I am also doing many jobs on 5iver.. But your Gig will be popular, the greater the +ve feedback u have and the larger the no. of views. You can use a also the facebook profiles or twitter accounts to promote your gigs.

    What kind of stuff are you guys promoting? Like I said there seems to be so many ppl promoting most of the seo stuff that it looks saturated. I guess noone will actually tell me what they are dong but worth asking xD

    Backlinks wont help directly. The best way is to use allot of relevent keywords for your gig, cuz ppls when they search in fiverr thats will give you a chance to pop up every time anyone will search for any of those keywords and they will be a targeted clients and ready to buy, Also a catchy title helps allot so think twice before chosing the title and CAPS the main word in the title cuz they allow you to use caps with one word only but you can cap the First Letter In Each Word.
    Good Luck!
