How do I promote my Gigs if I don't make use of social media?

Well, as simple as the title says. Only thing I get is messages from scammers and can't seem to find ways of reaching legit people.

Even if I unwillingly pushed myself into the social media world to promote my stuff, I don't think my Facebook friends really care about my work...

So are there other alternatives to make my Gig known? How did people start getting customers without previous experience in the platform?

How do I promote my Gigs if I don't make use of social media?

Hi @alfonsolovera - Fiverr is designed to bring buyers to your gig, so you shouldn't have to promote using social media. Instead, focus on optimizing and making your gig attractive to your potential buyers.

If your gig is optimized and relevant, Fiverr will start showing your gig to buyers when they search for your services. 

If your gig is attractive, then buyers will click on your gig and buy from you. Think from your buyer's perspective, and write your gig for them. What would make them want to click on your gig image (and not your competitors)? What would make them want to buy from you?

For example, if I wanted an English-to-Spanish translation, I would want to see samples of your work. You only have one gig image and nothing else. Use your remaining 2 image files, 2 PDF files, as well as a gig video to show off your abilities and portfolio. When you have no reviews, an impressive portfolio will give you credibility. 

Here are other ways you can update your gig to help increase your visibility in search:
