Impressions aren't all that important. Here's why:

Cheers for that OP. Interesting read.

I myself don’t see much of a correlation between impressions and orders, so instead focus my attention to gig views and my conversion %, two things that mean far more to the success of my gig. Impressions also tend to fluctuate even when my orders are consistent… yet another hint towards them not meaning much to the success of your gig.

“Action determines success.”… you bet!

That’s another thing many new sellers overlook – repeat buyers can often be the bread and butter of a seller’s clientele. Just gaining sales is one thing, gaining multiple repeat sales from sellers that like your work is even better.

Conversion rate merely refers to the number of people that clicked on your gig to take a closer look, and then placed an order. It’s a useful statistic that can tell you how well you have expressed your services in your Fiverr gig description. If you have a high conversion rate, then people are likely visiting your gig(s), liking what they read, and they want to work with you. if you have a high number of visits, but a low to zero conversion rating, you might want to look into why so many people are visiting your gigs, but then leaving without placing an order.

It’s a useful analytics stat.

I want to say that my conversion rate looks awesome when I am getting very few views. It actually compares views to sales. So if impressions drop way down so do views, and then my conversion rate is sky high even if I’m doing badly as far as income.

So I no longer pay attention to conversion rate.

If I have almost no views or impressions on a gig but have some repeat buyers on it, then my conversion rate can be 50% or more giving a false impression.

As a buyer, the response that I get from a seller when I ask questions goes a long way in me purchasing a gig from them.

I have recently received a very sarcastic reply to a seller when I complimented him on his past work. Guess what… my gig of several hundred dollars went to someone else.
Poor English is also a killer right off the bat. I realise that this is a International workplace, but if i sense that there will be a communication problem, I dont go forward.
There are also lots of sellers that have absolute crap as samples of their work…why would I buy from them, even if they have a high rating.
If nothing is unique about your past work…and all cut and pasted Vectors…well, Im skipping over them.
I personally dont even look at the sellers ratings…I look at the past work.

Whenever a buyer comes to me, the first thing I do is let them know how I can help them, then follow that up with relevant samples to their topic / industry. Around half of the enquiries to me turn into sales.

wow, very well said. What places outside of fiverr do you recommend for advertising your offers?

I can’t tell you that, because there is no one answer. Every business/service has their own market, and their own unique customers. It is YOUR job to determine who those customers are, where they can be found, and then go market and promote your gig to those customers wherever they are located.

There is no one advertising answer that fits every seller.
