Is there an oligarchy of "elite SEO sellers" on Fiverr?!

    Hey!
    Have you noticed that Fiverr principles and mechanisms create elite sellers who have tons of positive feedback as well as collected gigs. Then they attract most of the customers because of the rating, even if they offer less than you. This, as well as the fact that their gigs are more exposed, guarantees them more orders than to any other fiverr seller in their category. As a result of that nobody can catch up with them(in standart categories like SEO). I have been thinking about this a lot lately and this is a really demotivating problem. Of course, many of you say: Find your niche or product and if it is a good one, the customers will come. But, I am afraid this isn't the way how to become top league...
    I came up with my own fiverr black hat method, that I started with about a week ago. So far it seems that it might work, but it needs about two months of testing and if it proves to be working I will share it here.


    What do you think? Is there any way how to catch up with current rating leaders? Do you have your own method?

    It's all about getting your foot in the door. Are you selling SEO services or something else?

    I am not selling SEO, I am selling crazy promotional videos, but this sector is also pretty saturated. You have to be really creative or weird looking to become popular...

    With that type of gig I recommend putting up as much sample work examples as possible. If you don't have customer videos you could post, then create some samples for imaginary customers to give people an idea of exactly what they're getting. This will help attract more buyers.
