    What's wrong with my gig, I made a fairly unique "just for fun" gig on Fiverr. So far 150 impressions, 7 clicks and 14 views. Zero sales!
    It's basically rating someone's attractiveness. I see new gigs all the time with at least 1-2 sales, and they are not unique, in fact they're repetitive and somewhat saturated (i.e I will chat with you on Skype etc) in the Fun & Bizarre category


    Why is my gig not selling? It's like I have rotten luck with making money no matter what I try :(

    Well maybe those aren't real sales, and you could also not be ranking for your particular service or product.

    Best regards,

    It's all if people need your product they purchase.

    Hello,

    Show boobs, and you will have a lot of sales.

    Most seriously, people buy gigs when they are reviews.

    No reviews, no buyers.

    So, your first and most important task is to get some reviews.

    Maybe you should pay for some reviews so people see it's real or something. Try that.

    Get some reviews first. Ask your friends to buy your gig and leave a positive review. Do you have a gig video?

    "It's basically rating someone's attractiveness."
    I'm not saying that nobody will buy your gig for sure, but I'd post other gigs if I look out for making money online in first line. Most people on Fiverr are looking for useful gigs, and these joke gigs don't have a high sales volumes. Maybe your gig description isn't that decent too, maybe check it?
    Regards,
    Coingrabber
