Launching Promoted Gigs


mjensen415

Recommended Posts

I am starting to think that all the search feature all the users were reporting that their gigs are pushed back, i think it was on purpose by fiverr because they thought the one that are pushed back will pay to bring it back at top, so all this problem was because of them. There was no search problem, it was all made up by fiverr.
Secondly, i personally think that this feature wont work. As far my studies says, when a user have a successful project with 5 star rating, his or her gig should go up, but this happened with me it went down instead so i doubt if this works properly

If this data was shared 2-3 months ago we could save so much MB space on the forum without multiple topics about Promoted GIGs:

We’ll evaluate your eligibility according to the following standards:

  • You’re a Level 2 or Top Rated seller
  • At least one of your Gigs is in an eligible category
  • Your Gig scored 4.7 in public rating
  • Your Gig has at least 30 reviews
  • You meet additional quality metrics *No, this is not vague at all. a-a, njet, ne…

    English dictionary: “quality metrics” = qua-li-ty me-T-ric-s, meaning: to give more money, pay more money

So basically you gonna put Level 2 and TRS against one another in bidding to place their GIGs on the first page?

We shall see the outcome.

Well this only makes sense for people that have a pricey gig.

Maybe it will be mostly TRS who win the top positions in the searches/categories with promoted gigs as they will probably have the higher priced gigs on average (so they might lose less per sale on average if they promoted their gigs compared to a level 2 seller with a lower price gig).

Maybe also Fiverr Pros with a level 2 or TRS level (or mostly Fiverr Pros who are TRS, depending on the number of them in the subcategory). Though Pro gigs are already promoted more than other gigs.

Hey, What level do you have to be to qualify for promoted gigs? And can I pay through my Fiverr balance?

Level 2 or top rated.

But it’s not available for everyone. I am level 2, have high ratings and I don’t see the option. But as I said above, it’s very easy for others to abuse it, and for my price points it’s just not worth it

I don’t believe this is true, because sellers from categories that aren’t even part of the ads program have been complaining about gig placement. Fiverr is/was not intentionally sending seller gigs to the back of the search results, just to force them to pay more to be seen. Why would Fiverr, as you claim, send sellers to the back of the search results who don’t even qualify for the promoted gigs program?

Well I am at the bottom, my entire account, all my gigs are at the bottom. And I qualify for the program. Not saying it’s intentional or anything, but it’s certain some popular gigs are at the bottom and they are obviously encouraged to pay for exposure since they are not getting new messages or customers.

Will you make this feature available to level one sellers in the near future?

We hope, you will?

Why? So you can spend $15 to make $12 on order you get by promoting your GIG?

In order for your GIG to be on the first page, your “bid” must be higher than the rest. So if you, let’s say put that you are willing to pay 1$ for 1 click, and 50 sellers put 1.2$ per click, your GIG is on the second page. Maybe. Since Fiverr still must give the opportunity to new sellers and Level one sellers. So you are page 2 or 3 maybe after paying 50$ for promotion, with no sales.

But I think this feature is really good for pricey gigs or services! Let’s say, I’m providing full website creation at 100 dollar, If I’m getting even one sale after spending 10 dollar, then I’m getting good ROI (return on investment)

If I’m getting even one sale

Yes, on a day you get sale.

But on a days you do not?

It is like gambling, it will become an addiction.

You will put 10 and it won’t work. And you are going to think, maybe I picked wrong day, wrong gig, wrong something, just 10 more, just 10 more… and than nothing, and you gonna: Oh, I must get my 20 back, lets put another 10 to get sale… and soon, before you notice, your eventual 100$ sale is going to cost you much more than 10$.

Everyone has their own perspective!

But maybe you’re right, it could turn into gambling game

are not getting new messages or customers.

I am a TRS and for the past two weeks new buyer inquiries have dropped to almost zero. Thank goodness for my regular buyers otherwise I would be in trouble. Yes it’s forced me to look at ads. I am seeing some sellers that have 2-3 spots on the first page. How can this be right? Some sellers have vanished from the first 3-4 pages.

I also checked my email and junk files there are no invites as yet.

New business for me has almost dropped completely.

I’m amazed to know that even top rated sellers are lacking orders!

One thing become sure, we can’t rely on Fiverr, we are just depending on Search Algorithm

It’s better to have more than one source of income?

I talked about it here but no one give atention in the forum, as you said in the past two weeks the inquiries dropped, with me, with you and with others people. I’m almost sure that the reason is because the new Promote Gig feature. Before this past two weeks i received everyday at least one message from clients.

I noticed all gigs from my account are removed, not just my main one. You can find it only if you search for local customers, from my country. They rotated me once to the first page the past month for 3-4 days. Then I went back and inquiries, views, clicks, all dropped.

Also I don’t really understand why it says it’s only for gigs with at least 30 reviews. Surely gigs with less than 30 reviews would need promotion a lot more than those with more reviews?

I think it’s not about what gigs or sellers need, the idea is to promote proven gigs that would be appealing to buyers.

That’s totally incorrect. Just because a gig has no reviews because it’s new, doesn’t make it unreliable or unprofessional. It is super unfair that there are some newly joined sellers that have waay more experience in a certain area than say one “top rated seller”.

I never said it does.

I’ve seen newly joined sellers who truly had way more experience than some old ones rise pretty quickly and reach the TRS status.

Well, days for new seller like us comes to an end.

I don’t think so actually. A new seller just needed persistency and doing his/her best to satisfy client that comes their way. Remember that a top rated seller started from a new arrival
