Almost no Impressions and no click, cant promote, fiverr is broken.

Hi, i have this problem with fiverr that i already had for months.

In the last 6 months i have an average of maybe 4 impressions a day, i have 5 different gigs, 1 of them with 25 reviews, 5 stars, another one with only 2 reviews and 5 stars, the other 3 i haven't made a single project. My problem is that i have maybe 300 hundred impressions a month on all 5 gigs, that's insane, there is no way i can get any work with those numbers, i have 4 clicks this last months between all gigs. (most of my clients are logos, so i cant even tell them to use my service again because the logo i made is supposed to last)

This has been happening as i said for the last 6 months, the only time i have impressions and some clicks is if i can promote my best gig, thats it, when i promote it all my gigs grow in impressions, even those that aren't promoted, but the problem is i cant even promote, in the last 5 month i maybe promoted 3 days in total, because it always says i have some kind of problem with the gig, which they never specify what it is, and then without changing anything the problem dissapears and i can promote for 18 hours or so and then again i cant promote.

I completely understand there is thousand of other sellers and i cant be on the top always, but i think its insane that this has been happening for so long and no gig is working now. And even if i want to pay so i can get some work, fiverr doesn't let me, it just so broken. And as i said i don't expect to have gigs all the time and making money without stop, but this last 6-5 month i had like 2 jobs maybe, and because i could promote for those 2 days, without promotion i wouldnt have one done.

Well Filip i already mentioned two time that i understand that, so thanks for that comment, not really helpful, this is just ignoring the problem, it shouldnt be this way that there is almost half a year without impressions and clicks, its just broken.

So Fiverr is broken because you can't compete with nearly 200.000 other sellers. Ok. 

It's not ignoring the "problem". The "problem" here is that you're trying to sell exactly the same thing as 200.000 other people. 

Imagine if you want to open a store on a busy shopping street. You see 40 bakeries all selling the same cookie. Do you think it's a good idea to open another bakery on that street? 

And if you did, do you expect customers to start rolling in to buy your cookies automatically? 

Fiverr will promote the creme of the crop on top. People have spent years building a reputation and profile to get there. They've invested thousands of manhours into their business. That's why they're on the top.

Nothing is broken except the idea that you can come to this platform, create a gig, and beat the competition simply by being here. 

I often tell new sellers they tend to get a slight boost right at the beginning. If you can't get enough momentum, you'll most likely never make it because of the massive competition on Fiverr. 

We're not telling you this to be unhelpful or to "ignore the problem." We're telling you this because it's the truth. 

If you want to succeed, you need to offer something unique and have it all planned out before you post your first gig. 

Since you're clearly not happy with the level of support and information we've given you for free on our own time, here is some advice you might find more useful:

You're a talented designer, based on your portfolio. What you're lacking are the skills to market yourself. 

Upon reviewing one of your gig descriptions, I noted a few things you can improve.

The current description reads akin to a detailed procedural guide. As a prospective buyer, it's important for me to feel drawn in and inspired rather than being given a checklist of required inputs.

A compelling gig description should highlight the value and unique benefits the client will receive. This could involve painting a vivid picture of the outcome I can expect. After all, people don't buy a product or a service; they buy what it can do for them.

Use engaging and dynamic language, and inspire action rather than listing the information needed from the client upfront. It's about crafting a narrative that makes the buyer excited to work with you.

P.S. Attention to detail is vital. If you're posting a gig full of typos, how can a buyer expect you to be detail-oriented and meticulous about your work? 

If your goal is to convert more prospects into clients, I would recommend honing your marketing and copywriting skills. On Fiverr, you're not just a designer.  You're also a support specialist, a professional marketer, a copywriter, and a salesperson.

Sell the value and potential that purchasing a logo from you can offer rather than the product or the process itself.

In addition to using your gig description to do this, you can also use gig videos to increase engagement, clicks, and in turn, conversions. Gigs with a video are more likely to sell, if the video is good.

I hope this advice is more to your liking! 

Best of luck!

Well i understood that im not unique, i mentioned it, my problem was that even if i can have a perfect description, an image, there is nothing i can do (for me it seems) to make people at least see my gig, and that even if i want i cant promote it.

But thank you so much, you really dedicated time and give me some good tips that ill try to implement, which i really appreciate, but please don't compare the level of support you given me on your free time, and that other comment which was not helpful at all and didn't add anything new, and thanks again.

I understand your feelings of frustration. Fiverr typically give gigs that they anticipate will perform well in the marketplace access to promoted gigs, and for a good reason. This approach mirrors how regular gig visibility works: if you earn and your buyers are satisfied, you'll be placed prominently in the listings.

One strategy to improve your gig's visibility is to update and rejuvenate your gig. This might offer a small boost to your visibility. I would advise that you carefully plan all the modifications, craft an impeccable gig description, produce a gig video, and apply these changes simultaneously when everything is thoroughly prepared and ready to go.

With these improvements, there's a chance that Fiverr's algorithm will give you that boost. If you do a great job when/if a buyer comes along,  Fiverr might reward your efforts with additional visibility. It's all about getting the ball rolling. 

Before you do any of this, though, ensure you have a good value proposition. Consider what makes you unique. Why should a buyer order from you and not one of the other 200.000 gigs? That promise of uniqueness should serve as the backbone of your strategy here. 

Best of luck!
