    I have a level 1 fiverr account with a 100% gig rating and some great customer testimonials.

    In the past 30 days I managed to make over $100. I get about 3 - 4 orders per week with double or triple units being ordered. Since last week customers have started repeat orders as well.

    I'm wondering if its time to add a video to my fiverr gig.

    Are there any proven case studies that show having a video would increase in the search results?

    Presently my gig ranks nowhere in the 5 pages of the search results (only page 2 for express gigs).

    honestly I have a video on my account with 100% rating - it doesn't do anything - i still get the same amount of sales and i didnt get any extra exposure.

    Unless your gig involves a video of some sort, like a video creation or anything of that sort, you won't need a video. I personally don't buy gigs based on the content of the video unless it falls into the category I just mentioned.

    It wont going to change anything, not even "pass our moderators" thing. It will only show in the "Haz video" line, nothing else. Uploading a video used to be the best thing on fiverr, but not anymore. Try to make your service express, that will increase your earnings.

    You can make a short video by yourself, don't spend money on it. Here is something that can save you time and money, just find a way to get the video out of the site(upload it on youtube). Site: studio.stupeflix.com

    You can even make a gig if you are not lazy... for making videos. Just check the site, it's cool. There is male and female voices which read texts too.

    I don't think so it is beneficial. If you want to gain some information get it through google or use some kind of reading material.

    I guess so too. My gig does rank on page 2 for express order but that's about it. I guess i'll have to check with my buyers and figure out how they found my gig, should be the most easiest and simplest way to figure out how to optimize the gigs.

    Thanks for the inputs.

    my two cents - it adds a bit more personality and you can always upload to youtube and other sites, drive traffic to them and then hopefully get more orders.

    there are a lot of hot chicks on there too so one idea could be to get one of them to make a video for you detailing your services, seen this before :)

    Uploading to youtube might be a good idea. But then again.. what's the point if the video doesn't get enough views.. especially a fiverr made one. I'd be ending up paying more money to get YT views in order to drive sales and justify the expense. I know its just $5.. but hey every cent counts.

    Hot chicks. I did think of it before to change my 'generic' profile pic to that of a hot chick but somehow decided against it.

    I think for seasoned fiverr buyers (who in most cases are sellers too) wouldn't fall for the fake testimonials to be honest.

    I think adding any extras certainly helps and no harm in trying
