Launching Promoted Gigs

Recommended Posts

How can I prove myself when no one is getting my gigs in their search?

And it’s not like I don’t value my skills, i just need to make aggressive pricing here where many sellers sale the same service. And to prove my quality of service, fiverr fails to even give me a chance. I literally got only 3 clients (Repeating) which I got from Buyers request, and luckily now I don’t get a single buyers request. My impressions:click ratio is is decent but impression no. Are below 100.

If I say my overall opinion on Fiverr, they don’t support quality of service but experience on the site. Which is kinda ok but still not the best thing.

Anyway I want to be a level 2 seller here and see if I boost my sells then and if that doesn’t work I may have to leave fiverr.

Challenge yourself to look beyond the obvious.

It is not Fiverr’s responsibility to “give you a chance”. You make your own chances. Fiverr does not guarantee sales or top visibility to any seller here on Fiverr. If you want to be successful, YOU need to learn how to make that happen. No one is going to provide you any chances or sales. You need to take creative steps to build your own success. Those who do, achieve.

YOU are the only person who can make YOU successful. The success YOU achieve depends entirely upon the goals YOU set, and steps YOU take to reach those goals.

Wow. This is crazy. So only for members who have already found success. While newcomers fumble around in the dark. There is nothing to help new sellers like this program? Am I understanding correctly?

For what it’s worth, we don’t have it - we’ve been a Top Rated Seller for about a year now, with gigs in the relevant categories. So right now, I couldn’t tell you why some are being chosen, while others aren’t.

In terms of this not being open to newcomers - whilst this might be a bitter pill to swallow, the decision does make sense. Have a look at the main page of this forum, and count in a day the number of people posting “How do I make more sales?” posts. Then look at the quality of their gigs. 9 times out of 10, they are sub-par (to be polite). Now think of how many people don’t post on the forum, but still slap together some garbage gigs and assume they should be getting sales. Hundreds, if not thousands every day. Do you really think Fiverr want those gigs on their front search pages?

Promoting gigs gives you the potential to be the first thing a buyer sees when they come to Fiverr, potentially a buyer who is brand new to Fiverr. Fiverr want those buyers to have a good impression of the site. So yeah, I think it makes sense to only allow sellers and gigs with a proven track record to take those spots, at least for the time being. Fiverr want to do all they can to make the experience for the buyer positive, and that benefits all of us - a rising tide lifts all boats.

Is it fair? Yes, and no. No because I get that there are some amazing new sellers who would love to pay their way to the top spot, but won’t be able to. And Yes, because new members will just have to prove themselves the old-fashioned way, just like the rest of us did when we started out.

It may not be like this forever - perhaps, as time goes on, they’ll open this up to more people. But right now, I think it’s the right call.

yes. but some newcomers not work properly. sometimes they have not enough skills. if they start promoting their gig .sometimes buyer orders their gig but at last he did not get his work properly. so how you handle this ??

then they get a bad impression for a fiver

Love this promoted gig feature and soon available to all sellers soon 😀

and soon available to all sellers soon

Where have you seen this? There has been no indication that “all sellers” will be getting this. We’re a Top Rated Seller, and we still don’t have access to it. If you’re a Level 1 or Level 0 seller, I would work on the assumption that this won’t be made available to you, and focus instead on reaching the criteria needed for it to become available.

Interesting. I’m always a bit skeptical when it’s from Customer Support; they tell different sellers different things about established practices like cancellations, so until it comes from somewhere more official, I wouldn’t necessarily bank on this being accurate.

Certainly all the wording I’ve seen so far suggests that Fiverr will expect sellers to have some tangible experience and success on the platform before they make this available to them. But I guess we’ll see.

You are also right but let’s see how much time it takes to get available

Though CS doesn’t say it will “soon be available to all sellers”. They say it will be gradually introduced to more and more users and that “eventually the feature will be available to everyone”. So it sounds like it probably won’t be available soon to all sellers…It might take ages for it to be.

fiverr should also add BUSINESS category under paid promote, because there are lot of sellers work in this category and day by day more new seller also coming and start working under this category, so it’s became very difficult to get job under this category! I am requesting to fiverr please think about this category.

How do I know my bid accepted? It doesn’t work for me. I promoted 3 days ago, the result is .

What does it say when you click on the blue-hyperlinked bid amount of $0.50?

Your metrics would suggest that your bid might be too low to trigger. Clicking on the bid amount should show you a ‘suggested’ bid amount to help you outbid others.

Yes, 0.33 suggested a bid amount for me but I did it with 0.50, and not working …

Just to let you know, customer service is about as official as you can get. If I were you, I would except CS as very high on the Fiverr importance scale. Just saying.

I just started the Promoted Gigs yesterday after being invited. A message showed up in my notifications and I also got an email.

To be honest, I wasn’t sure about this new launch but the best I can do is try it so I can give it a legitimate and honest review.

I attached screen shots of the notification and email so you can see what it looks like.

I was also invited to create a Fiverr Studio which I am creating now.

Some things are a mystery in Fiverr like who gets invited to these programs and why some people don’t.

All I know is your professional communications are watched and so are your - not so professional- communications.

It’s like I always believed that my mom had eyes in the back of her head because somehow she always knew what I was doing lol!

Well Fiverr is the same. If you keep everything squeaky clean and professional including all communications, your gigs, your portfolio and the way you reach out to inquiries and customer service then hopefully it is just a matter of time and patience.

If you have met the requirements for any of these special Fantastic Fiverr Favors (I call them) just continue to do good work and don’t worry about it.

They are Fantastic Fiverr Favors because they are helping you and holding the door open as a favor. But who wants to extend a favor and open the door for someone who complains all the time. You would rather help people who are nice and appreciate the help.

Just my thoughts.

Hi Melissa,

I think what I said has been misinterpreted a little. I never questioned the importance, or officiality of Fiverr Customer Support. But I’ve had many personal experiences over the years, of different Customer Support agents interpreting the same rule in very different ways. I’ve literally had different answers, within the space of a few hours, from different agents, and that’s happened on numerous occasions, and regarding well established practices.

My comment was in reference to a CS agent promising a new seller that Promoted Gigs would be available to everyone soon. This seems to go against Fiverr’s methodology in rolling out Promoted Gigs, and certainly wouldn’t make much business sense (giving a brand new, un-vetted seller the ability to promote their gigs to page one is a recipe for disaster).

All I was saying was that, until I hear that from an official channel (like a press release, an update on the relevant support page etc) that I wouldn’t guarantee on this being 100% accurate.

Thank you for clarifying that. I know it takes time to sort out your thoughts and I appreciate the professional manner in which you did so.

Sometimes even top-rated sellers with excellent reviews need a little assistance getting their Gig in front of new buyers. Why? Because there’s tons of amazing talent to be discovered on Fiverr.

But there’s the “Best selling gig sorting” available, which should show those top-rated sellers first, as they are top rated for a reason. Except the best selling sorting has not been working for a while, and is like recommended sorting instead.

Might the reason be that no more free visibility is being offered for performing amazingly good, but you now have to pay to get those impressions, no matter service quality? (Except to meet the minimum requirement for being able to promote, which is ridiculously low)

And as the promoted gigs feature is not available in every category, at least those categories that don’t have it available should return to the old gig sorting, which actually shows best selling gigs when sorting by best selling.

It’s mostly about the badge I think. TRS seem to get invited to most things first. eg. Promoted gigs, ability to be a studio leader etc. They are also much more likely to get the “Fiverr’s Choice” badge (despite level 0 being the most common level, you’ll hardly ever see them with that badge).
