A basic review of the most popular gigs on Fiverr.com shows that users are looking for online promotion of their sites and even their Fiverr gigs! While choosing to create a promotion-based Fiverr gig will greatly increase your chances of having a high demand, any type of gig can use the basic principals these gigs have used to effectively increase demand. Popularity can be achieved on Fiverr by creating a gig that meets a specific and established demographic, by ensuring that your gig description and customer service are of the highest quality, and by thoroughly promoting your gig online. Sprinkling humor and creativity throughout these steps will help your gig to have healthy and sustainable growth.
When just starting out creating your first gigs on Fiverr, it is absolutely essential that you stick with ideas you are comfortable with and understand thoroughly. Use any particular skills you have that might be marketable online, or are far enough outside the ordinary to be untapped on Fiverr. For ideas, spend some time scanning through the Fiverr directories, browsing under the “Auto” search option for a slice of the creative things other people are doing. Browse under the “Popularity” tab to see what types of gigs have had the most success. Try to combine what you learn from these two types of searching into some gig ideas that will draw on your own personal strengths yet appeal to a large number of potential customers.
Quality and creativity must be the cornerstones of your gig description. The trust of your viewers can be instantly lost with a strange or impersonal description, but it is much harder to convince them that you are creative and trustworthy. Spend time crafting the best possible description. Add a video to boost your visibility. Once you start interacting with customers, go out of your way to be polite, informative and creative. Giving them the best possible customer experience will ensure good feedback, which is the cornerstone of the Fiverr system. Positive feedback will lead to more customers in a continual stream that will grow your business.
Finally, harness the promotional power of the Internet to get the word out about your Fiverr gig. This can be done through a variety of basic methods that are useful for all types of gigs, but your marketing plan should also include ideas that are specific to you and your gig type. The basic promotional tools include posting videos on your own private YouTube channel, creating a website through a free blog hosting site, and creating social media pages on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. You can even hire people to market your gig through Fiverr. Additionally, you should search out any online places that will have particular interest to your niche demographic. This can include blogs, forums, and even commercial websites.
Creating a Fiverr gig with a high demand requires diligent research and an absolute adherence to quality. The temptation to simply copy the very successful gigs at the top of the Popularity search list will result in a lower quality final product at the best, and may incur rejection from Fiverr at the worst. Staying true to yourself and creating a final product that you can be proud of will be your most powerful tool for creating a high demand for your Fiverr gig.
