    I've set up a quality fiverr gig selling a blogroll link on a PR3 website.

    I am offering a good link and not a crappy one that gets removed after a week like other sellers, with low obl and ********.

    However, I can make any sales. I have posted the gig on DP, promoted it using twitter and I really have no more ideas on how to sell this, because it's something it's worth more than just $5.

    How would you promote a fiverr gig like this? I wonder if it would be worth to pay for a BST thread here...

    Try creating several similar gigs to get more exposure.

    You mean other gigs selling the exact same stuff? I'll try that.

    Also I've just uploaded a video to my gig to see if that helps.

    One tactic is to look at similiar gigs and contact their buyers and tell them yours is better. Some consider this spam, but if you are really offering a quality service you should be good.

    Fiverr actually does not allow you to message random buyers, or at least I can not find a "message" anywhere for buyers of other gigs.

    I'm mobile right now so I cant really check, but if I can I will certainly try it.

    Any other thoughts?

    You are offering a PR3 blogroll backlink. Blogrolls have been heavily devalued and PR3 is not sufficient to notice anything.

    I believe once you hit so many sales you go into a different "tier" and show up better. Another technique I just saw used the other day by someone here was to offer his gig to people here for free. They buy the gig, and once they leave positive feedback he paid them their $5 back via paypal. Technically your loosing $1 a sale then since you only get 4 from the sale, and its kinda cheating, but this is a blackhat thread afterall, and it worked great for him.

    What are expecting of a fiverr gig? I don't mean this will boost you in the serps, but for $5 it's a good deal I believe.

    True. However you can message buyers, but not all. I don't know who you can message but I always find around 10-15 in 10 minutes, pretty quick. Press the scroll on every single buyer and look thorugh them to see who you can message.

    Just use an other account of your to message it out. This have gave me some customers. Not worth it in the long run though, but good to get some sales.
