Has anyone here ever promoted their services or products on fiverr?
How did you get your first customer?
I have listed some gigs there for the last 3 years and no
one has ever ordered them. I would like to know how to get my
first buying customer, so that I can get some positive reviews
and increase my credibility.

Well, It's not that easy to sell with fiverr. Your gigs must be interesting and helpful to get purchased. What are you selling?
Try "Promoting your Business" option, it allows you to take your gigs almost everywhere eg. facebook, blog etc...
That's how you get succeed with fiverr.

Yes, it has not been easy getting clients there.
But then again I had not paid too much attention to it.
I want to start marketing my services there.
I think I will start with the option you have mentioned.
I sell writing services, like the one on my signature link.

I never really bothered selling on fiverr simply because :

- High commission
- Low rate
- high competition

Most importantly, i feel they reached to a point where they start loosing the crowd. If you check their alexa rating they dropped well in the last 2 years ( they increasing fees to buyer, leaving their original business model and high competition.

I used to own one of their largest competitor couple of years ago, and believe it or not, my seller used to make much better than the one on fiverr ( because i handled promoting those online using PPC, fiverr don't promote your gigs.

I saw your gig and i am happy you finally got your first review, but for the amount of work, i highly encourage you to start offering the service in a website where it pay off.=

When it comes to being a service provider and getting reviews, the people that I know who have done it did their first or second job for free (in order to learn about the whole process, get feedback, and stuff like that). With that said, depending on what services you provide, you might just want to start your own site on your own domain and brand yourself as a leader in the industry. You'll be able to charge more than what you get from those kinds of sites. When I first started online, I used to write articles for various sites. To me, the money was not worth it. By the time I got paid, the money was already spent. Then, I was broke just like before.

Honestly I haven't messed with Fiverr in a while. Anyone that says you can't make money with it, actually means to say they can't make money with it.

The amount of traffic Fiverr receives is still growing.

Out of 55k keywords getting traffic, I'm sure you can find a few categories to sell in. Offer people deals, like 1 article free for first time buyers.

When I used to sell gigs I would just simply explain the importance of reviews and how much they help sales and request the buyer to let everyone know about the service they received. No matter if it was satisfactory or not. I never got a bad review, it was just a less pushy way of requesting for a review. Don't just ask for a positive review. You'll look desperate.

Also think out side of the box when selling gigs. I used to bang out dailymotion views and was posting them in a section that had nothing to do with video.

I have my own website where I promote my services
but I also want to promote on fiverr too to get clients
coming in from different places.

I believe the advantage fiverr gives me is that once I get
lots of reviews I will get more exposure from the people who
visit the site regularly, which is much more than those who come
to my site.

Great opportunity on Fiverr. People will always say that you 'are too late' or that you have missed the opportunity but that is not true. There will always be competition and as competition grows, so do the customers (as ericplots proved). Plus there are always new things that people want, it is just finding a good gig to sell and grow that way.

Deliver Good service to your cleints and ask them for a review. the more reviews you have the more gigs you get. always deliver massive value so your clients will recommend you to their fans, followers and friends.

People buy from amazon because of reviews. the more better reviews you have the more you get top on fiverr.

Great information. I have been thinking of trying to offer my services on Fiverr but wasn't sure if it is worth it.

Same here. I am not sure how to market my skills because there are a lot of well trained people there. I am not sure if I can ever make it there but it's worth a shot to try to know if it's worth it or not. Good luck to you Greylin.
