How do you prevent hitting 'gig dryspells'?

That’s the nature of freelancing in general. Which if you were working on your own outside of Fiverr, the answers is you have to always be advertising and marketing even when you have gigs coming in so as to prevent dryspells. And/or get ahead enough at one point to have some savings in the bank for a month or two or more of expenses, so you don’t have to worry about dryspells.

Here in Fiverr it’s still the same. Do you do any other outside advertising of your Fiverr gigs anywhere else but your facebook page? Remember your friends are usually not customers so just there isn’t probably going to do much.

Reply to @easymedia: I agree. Plus many of your gigs don’t have more than one photo or sample. Like the grammar worksheets, or student worksheets, why not add some actual samples into your portfolio so someone can see what you are really talking about.

I would go through all your gigs, and do a search for similar gigs and click on high rating or see what the top sellers are doing with their gigs.

A couple of months ago, around my birthday, I put my gigs on vacation because we were going out of town for a week. I was getting around 10+ gigs a week and now I’m experiencing a serious drop off ever since. All the other times I’ve done that, customers have come right back. I’m just confused why this time would be so drastically different.
