You are not alone in this because the majority of freelancers who work on Fiverr face this issue. They create the gigs and wait for the clients to come and buy their gig on the platform. If you aren’t sure what I’m talking about then keep reading.
Fiverr is a popular freelancing platform that most of the freelancers are aware of and some of them use every day. It’s a gig-based freelancing platform where you can create almost any type of creative paid gig offer to provide your service.
You must have read my tutorial on starting freelancing on Fiverr. If you have not read that yet, I highly recommend reading that. After that, I’ll say that creating an effective gig is the first challenge. When you successfully create a good gig, the next step is always promoting the gig to find the customers or to sell your service.
You can’t just create a gig on Fiverr and wait for the clients to find you through Fiverr. Therefore, you must know how to promote your gigs outside the Fiverr so that you keep on getting traction on your gigs.
Here are four methods to promote your Fiverr gigs to attract more clients:
Write in Your Social Media Bio
You can start promoting your Fiverr gigs through all social media platforms using the bio. It’s a great way to get some attention to your Fiverr gigs. What happens is that people often look at the bio when they visit your profile to follow or contact you. When they see a link with a few words description along with it, if it interests them, they’ll likely to check out the gig page. It’s up to your gig then that how it plays out. Social media bio whether you use Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Instagram, all these platforms have the option to write a bio in your profile.
Highlight in Your Blog Posts
Your blog post is a fantastic way to let readers know about your gigs. When you write content and the topic related to your gigs come up, don’t hesitate to talk about your Fiverr gig and mention the link along with it so that people could check it out by clicking on that link. Our blogs are a great platform to promote our Fiverr gigs; most bloggers don’t know this and they rarely mention their gigs in their content. Although they keep tweeting and sharing on Facebook, which doesn’t work that effectively.
Use the YouTube Description
Another good way to promote your Fiverr gigs is YouTube. You don’t necessarily need to make a video on your gig, but instead, talk in a broader perspective and at the end of the video, just mention your gig and tell the audience to find the link to the gig’s page in the description. A lot of people make videos but they never use the description box properly. It could be used to tell things and share links. The important part of this method is the video that you’d upload to the YouTube. It must be related to the niche and you must be delivering some value to the audience. Don’t be salesy and come on the camera to talk about the gig only. Instead, use the video platform to share your experience or educate the audience somehow, then promote your gig.
Mention Your Gigs in Live Streams
A live stream is a popular form of video these days. Social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube provide the facility to live stream. The story of this method is similar to the previous method. If you want to sell gigs, then you need to attract the prospects first. To make that happen, you must go live to deliver value.
Some live streamers plan their live stream sessions ahead of time and they keep informing their audience for a few days and some randomly go live. Either way, make sure you’re there to provide value to them. Once you deliver value, you could easily infuse your gig into the conversation. Just because you have helped the audience, they’d happily listen to your offer too. So don’t hesitate to use live streaming to promote your Fiverr gigs once you have taught something or shared a valuable thing.
