I don’t know whether it’s related or not but I’m having my worst week like EVER right now. My gig has had the worst stats this week as far as I can remember. I’ve only gotten 2 orders from new clients which has never happened before.

I think it is related. Fiverr is promoting the sellers who are paying for the prime locations and if you are not promoting your gig gets pushed back behind the promoted ones.

I have asked the CS about the “AD” badge, and this is them reply

In your CS reply they says, “If you set up an ad, and you see your Gig in your Promoted Gigs view, it’s being promoted and shown on the prime locations in our search.”

But I see nowhere that it says for how long it is featured. :thinking:

I tried out the feature and did not like it. Every order was for my minimum amount of $10. Plus, by the time I added the price for the clicks I was paying Fiverr 23 to 25% as their part for promoting the gig. To me, for such small orders, it was not worth the expense. I can see where it may be valuable if a seller has larger sales.

Also, while I ran the promotion I did not get many orders other than my regular buyers. Once I stopped the promotion, after about a week I started to get new buyers again.

Well that is concerning since I don’t even have the Ad feature yet. Guess I’m in for a rough time.

I was not impressed with it. But maybe you have higher entry level gigs.

I only have one active gig at the moment and I’m pretty sure it meets all the requirements. Other than that, it’s been so long since we last talked! I hope you’ve been doing well.

@designs_4u1 posted all of the requirements above. Do you meet them.

I would gladly give you my Paid Promotion if I could.

Yes, I am. Trying to hide from COVID and the amount of business I get on Fiverr is acceptable. I am recuping from taking care of 3 active grandkids for the whole summer due to COVID and their daycare being closed. But now I just have an active one year old 5 days a week so it is easier to keep up with my business.

How are you and yours? Have you improved your eating habits? Are you still drinking chocolate syrup for breakfast?

I do meet all of them but maybe it’s just not in my category yet so here’s to hoping.

Luckily, most of my family including me already got it and overcame it so that’s a plus side to all this. Seriously, stay safe. COVID is just as horrible as the media makes it out to be.

And I’m sure with a Grandmother like you they’re having the time of their life. I’ve started watching some old classics again to deal with everything going on this year.

Ah, if only. On the contrary things on that front aren’t looking good. I did start taking cooking classes to deal with it but cause of the whole pandemic they didn’t last long. Other than that, things have been going well. Hopefully, they’ll get even better after I get this new ad feature.

It’s featured as long as you are the highest bidder in your category I would guess. :thinking:

sorry for asking this maybe you mentionned it in the past replies, but it’s too much, did you get any positive results from this feature ?

No, not really. It only showed about 50 impressions within 3,5 days but 0 clicks which is why I stopped bidding because I felt like my normal impressions went down in those 3 days and I didn’t get as many requests as usual. But that might be part of the feature testing they are doing. I have only seen 1 or 2 sellers actually have good results with it while it didn’t do anything for most others.

I agree. My stats are 35 impressions, 5 clicks and zero client response/ orders over the last few days in the promoted gig section.

My organic gig impressions for the promoted gig have also gone down quite a bit.

I got 56 impressions and 11 clicks but no order on my promoted gigs. That’s why I also stopped the promotion of my gigs.

For some reason I just received another invitation to try the feature. :thinking:

That was my experience too.

Shame, the way this feature works as of now (granted, it’s still in testing so we don’t know how the final feature will work) is just good for Fiverr as a potential source of income but the sellers don’t really seem to benefit from any of it.
