Ways to drum up business when it's slow

Getting consistent orders on fiverr can be tough. For me it's like a wave, sometimes I'll be crazy busy and sometimes it's slow as Christmas. As A voice actor, I've found it can come and go. When it's slow, I've learned a few ways that can help drum up some business for you. 

1. Share your gig!

Yes share it! Social media, Reddit, Quora, wherever! Get it out there. You'll never know who you can reach that could use your talents.

2. Get creative with sharing your gig

Sure you can do ads on the internet and they work great but if you're frugal like me, you're trying to do it free or low on the budget if possible. So set up flyers when you go to the grocery store or community bulletin board, have emails with info about you sent out, share a link of your page drawn in chalk somewhere. Go have fun and be creative.

3. Follow up with repeat buyers.

Now be careful with this. You don't want to harass them and push them away but check in on them. See how they are first. Build that relationship with them and remind them you're still there if they need anything from you

So what tips do you have? Comment below what's worked for you!
