2. Making Backlinks
Making Backlinks and Blog commenting is also a great way to drive traffic and get some buyers for your Fiverr Gig. Blog commenting will also build some trust in people for you and they may prefer to buy from your gig rather than from others’. Make sure that you are commenting eye-catchy and attractive comments to steal the show. Also, try to be the #1 commentator so that you gain more attention.
3. Promote on Your Blog
This may turn out the best way to drive traffic to your blog. If your blog is quite popular and you’re driving a good amount of traffic then promoting your fiverr gig on the blog will benefit hugely.

You determined what your gig is, you optimized the page, you created the video, now where’s the money? Starting a business is a lot of work. Your first few sales will be the hardest to achieve. But once you nail your Fiverr marketing strategy, you’ll be raking it in with the Top Sellers.
Below are some insightful Ways to Promote Your Fiverr Gigs:
1. Join niche forums
Getting active on forums is a strong strategy to help you drive traffic to your page. However, just as you wouldn’t want someone to go onto your website only to leave a link and never return, you need to show respect to those active in the forums.
Answer their questions, show your expertise and avoid giving a sales pitch with every post. Be subtle about it such as putting a link in your signature. Be picky about which forums you choose. And be sure to Keep it to three to four so that you’ll be able to be an active member of it.
2. Create a website/blog
Building a website or blog around your Fiverr account shows that you’re credible. Don’t cheap out with a website that looks like it was made in the 90s. You can choose solid templates from Theme Forest for about $20-$50.
Since you’ll have full control over the site you can promote your Fiverr account right on the front page. The more effort you put into building an audience, the more money that’ll flow in.

3. Social Media
Whether you promote your gigs to your Facebook fans or your large following on Twitter, social media is a sure way to increase the traffic to your gigs.
Since Facebook has been cutting out how many fans see Facebook pages they’ve liked, creating a Facebook page may not be worthwhile. Twitter has a lot of potential. You can do routine searches to see who’s looking for a service like yours.
Determine the keywords people use to search for your Fiverr gig and then use those same keywords to determine what Twitter users are searching for.
Another great social platform to drive traffic to your Fiverr page is Pinterest. You’ll need to post pictures of things that relate to gig such as an infographic, cool product you make, etc.
If you’re selling video testimonials or video spokesperson gigs, surely you will want to have a YouTube channel to promote yourself. But you can also drive traffic from YouTube to your gigs if you get creative enough.
If you’re selling something like SEO for $5, why not upload YouTube videos about how to optimize your site with Google and include a link to your services.
Users searching for ways to optimize their search engine results on Google will be likely interested in your affordable services.

5. Comment on blogs/articles
A great way to get your Fiverr profile and services out there is to search for relevant niche websites that have a blog and post articles that are relevant to what you are selling on Fiverr.
Most blogs allow you to include a link with your post and if the situation allows it, you could even mention in your comment that you provide a relevant service on Fiverr.
6. The Fiverr forum and LinkedIn group
Fiverr actually has a forum to promote your gigs. I suggest trying it out if you’re new. You’ll get a lot of feedback in there from other sellers and it could certainly help you if you’re new to it all.
Fiverr also has a LinkedIn Group for sellers. Be friendly and introduce yourself as well as ask for some critiques on your gigs. It will allow you to post links to your gigs as well as receive more feedback to help you improve the writing and titles on your gigs.
7. Offer to guest post
If you’re knowledgeable about a topic that is relevant to what you are selling on Fiverr, offer to write an article for relevant blogs and websites and in turn have them allow you to include a link to your gigs at the end of the article. It’s a great way to drive relevant niche traffic to your gigs with very little work.
Remember to think outside the box when it comes to getting traffic from external sources to your gigs.
Fiverr does a good job of promoting your gigs for you and eventually, you will find that you will have to do less and less promotion as your gigs become more and more popular.
These are great tips for new sellers who want to get their gigs some initial sales and reviews. Good luck!
You’re a Fiverr seller. You want more people to buy your gigs so you can retire to Bermuda and lounge on the pink sand beaches all day. Of course you do, who wouldn’t? And you’ve always been wondering what are the Ways to Make More Money on Fiverr? (Even racking your brain every now and then).
Well, Good news is there are some very basic and free things you can do to promote your worthwhile work, hence, increasing your chances of making money on fiverr.
Mind you, there are many different ways to make more money on Fiverr but here are some of the ways we tried and that worked…
Do You Want To Make More Money on Fiverr?
Do you have a video on your Fiverr gigs?
Videos increase sales in two ways: They entice the reader into playing the video and thus spending more time on the gig page, plus often you can explain the gig more clearly by demonstrating what it is you do.
The Fiverr gig description field is only 1200 characters. Once you have the video and submit it with your gig, you can post it to the various video-sharing sites.
When you do, make sure you use lots of relevant tags. Can’t make a video or don’t know how? There are sellers who will do this for you and the price (which we’re sure you can guess) is right.
Post blog comments.
Two good places to start commenting away are Fiverr’s own blog (blog.fiverr.com) and our very own scrap of virtual paper right here.Be sure to mention your Fiverr username and provide a link to your gig.
If we’re intrigued, we may just buy your gig and feature it. We are always amazed at how few people take advantage of these free resources.
You should also be a frequent visitor and commenter on Fiverr’s Facebook page as well as the LinkedIn group. Some of the top sellers hang out there. They must know something. Wouldn’t you like to know what?
If you don’t have Twitter and Facebook accounts, set those up now and start gaining followers.
To see what it’s possible to do, look at the pages of highly successful Fiverr users like Laura Catlow (catlow) and Sam Proof (samproof).
Offer to write guest posts.
We love guest posters here and since traffic to FL is growing steadily, you know your article will be read.
Come up with some creative gig ideas.
Each user is allowed twenty gigs and the more gigs you have, the more likely it is your gigs will be seen. What amazing, quirky, off-beat, bizarre things can you do? Strange acts involving food objects seem to sell well.
Stick with it.
If you have done all these things and more, stay the course. Sometimes it takes months to gain traction on Fiverr, but once you build up some good feedback the gigs keep coming.

As Fiverr becomes more popular, it’s getting hard to get noticed. And the question new users continue to ask is: “Are there ways to promote your fiverr gigs?” “What are they?” Well, there are many ways to promote your fiverr gigs and that’s why we thought and have decided to put together this 12 amazing list of free promotion techniques to get the ball rolling for you!
12 Free Ways To Promote Your Fiverr Gigs
1. Add a video to your gig – a gig without a video is a very effective way to blend in with 90% of the gigs on Fiverr. That’s a winning strategy for a rodent at the bottom of the food chain but YOU want to stand out! Videos entice clicks, plus you’ll be able to explain in much more detail what your gig is all about.
2. Optimize your tags – let’s face it: Fiverr is enormous. Unless you get featured, not many people will find your gig through passive browsing. By optimizing your tags, it’s far more likely that buyers will run across your gig. How do you know which tags to use? Start by having a look at what the popular gigs in your niche are using. You could also use Google’s Keyword Tool.
3. Posting on relevant forums – you won’t get far with spamming but many forums will allow you to put a link in your signature after you meet a certain minimum number of posts. Here are a few: The Warrior Forum for Internet marketers, Digital Point and the RetailMeNot forums. By creating high-quality posts, you’ll build a reputation and maybe even clientele. And there’s an added bonus if you have an AdSense publisher ID: The RetailMeNot forums have revenue sharing. (Digital Point no longer does.)
4. Create your own YouTube Channel – it’s time to get addicted to the limelight. Get in front of a camera and show people what you do. Camera shy? Create a slideshow and record a voice over! Just so everyone knows, the username FiverrWizard3000 is taken…
5. Create a free blog at Blogger – when you create a new gig, Fiverr gives you a grand total of 450 characters to get your point across. Make those characters count by linking to your personal blog! Pack it with samples of your work and talk about your other gigs. UPDATE: Fiverr doesn’t allow links to blogs any more (too many people were trying to sell off-Fiverr that way) but links to YouTube videos are permitted. Show your work off in a video.
6. Comment on blogs – commenting on blogs like Best of Fiverr is just one more way to get exposure. Just like with forum posts, the higher quality your comment, the more likely people will want to see what else you offer. Spammers need not apply!
7. Social networking – there’s no harm in telling people what you’re up to. Create a Fan Page for your gigs or Tweet about them to your followers. No one is going to ask if you don’t tell them about it first.
8. Referrals – good help is hard to find, especially on Fiverr. If you’ve already got some satisfied customers, why not ask them for some referrals? Chances are, they know someone who could really benefit from your service.
9. Offer review copies to relevant blogs – the hardest part about Fiverr is getting your first few gigs. Buyers look for positive ratings and if you don’t have them, you’re toxic waste. By offering a few review copies, you can easily garner off-site positive ratings to get the ball rolling. We’re pretty sure you’ll be able to find a relevant blog that will accept your review copies… *whistles inconspicuously*
10. Guest posts – bloggers are always after fresh content, especially lazy bloggers who lay in bed all day. [Hey! — Ed.] Offer them a guest post in exchange for a link to your gigs or blog. Just remember… whatever you put into the blogosphere could be read by a lot of people. Write something that will make you proud and make others take notice.
11. Press release – just like bloggers are on the lookout for fresh content, so is the media. If you think you’ve got a winning gig, write a short press release and send it out to the free press release sites. Don’t forget to contact your local media sources as well. There are plenty of people who still don’t know about Fiverr and this is a great way to get the word out.
12. User-generated websites – websites like Squidoo and HubPages lets users create pages on whatever interests them. Would it be wrong to include your gig on the page, “Top Fiverr Gigs”? Not if you’re offering quality!
This are the 12 best ways to promote your fiverr gigs and get quick and of course huge results. Trust me friends, with all those free options for promoting your gigs, it’s almost criminal not to do so. Do yourself and other Fiverr users a favor by making yourself noticed.
