    Hello everyone. I've re-posted the same gig over and over again, and no luck getting any sales in four months. I offer tweeting someones ad or site link to my 70,000 twitter followers three times within a span of 24 hours. I see other people with nearly the same gig, and they get TONS of orders just about every day. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong... I have a good description, a good photo, and somewhat nice title.

    - What are some ways to help me get my first sale?

    I've had no luck in the past four months.

    - Michael

    Some people are scared to be the first one to buy a gig. With a lot of those types of gigs people look for review comments to help them feel confident you can provide a good service. Notice that is what the other sellers have - lots of reviews. It is the "herd mentality".

    Do this...
    Copy your competitor's ads identically. And see if that makes a difference. They've done the research already and know what title, description and tags work. Just copy them. It will make a difference.

    You could also add in the description a Free Bonus for the first 10 buyers or something. be honest, tell them the gig is new but you guarantee to deliver, so you are giving a bonus as an incentive.

    I had a gig up there once that took a while to get buyers. After I got the first few they kept rolling in. Ihad to pull it cause my gig took up too much time. My service really was not worth $3 bucks for my time to do.

    My gig is actually copied nearly word for word. It hasn't made any difference. And the bonus thing is a great idea!

    On my gig, it's nearly copied word for word from someone else who gets tons of orders everyday, doing the same gig. I do have a unique picture in my opinion. I haven't thought of buying my gig though, that's a new one.

    1) Put an actiive praise word in the title, like AMAZING, FANTASTIC, as in "I will do a ASTONISHING job" describing your work.

    2) As someone stated, set up 10 extra accounts (to different Paypals or at least emails from across 1-2 Paypal accounts with $50 on them). Order your gig from the different accounts, complete them, praise your work as each buyer. Level 1 status is reached this way.

    3) Do a exact match keyword search first for a phrase corresponding to your gig that is in getting some good searches/month, and put that phrase in you gig. You could even build a blog or MNS around your niche gig and keyword (the gig is the monetization link for your site) and get SEO traffic to the gig that way.. If you ever get tired of the gig or Fiverr, you could flip the site to somebody who will continue the service with their own gig link.
