Guys my gig won\'t sell


Recommended Posts

Just looking at your gig title and preview photo, the problem seems to be that you’re offering a very niche service. How many people wake up in the morning and say to themselves, “Hot hell, I want to get a funky vector graphic made out of a photograph!” Niche services are a double-edged sword: on the one side of the blad, you’re offering something that a buyer can’t get from anybody else, but on the other side of the blade, how much demand really exists? Also, from a buyer’s perspective - or at least, from my perspective - I’m not inclined to buy your gig because it looks like all you’re doing is running a picture through a Photoshop filter, and that’s something I can do online for free through at least three websites that turned up on the first page of a Google search for, “turn jpg to vector.” So be honest with yourself: offering a niche service that buyers with half an ounce of intelligence could do for themselves for free isn’t going to become a major revenue stream for you.
