If you’re interested in finding out how to promote Fiverr gigs for free then this post is for you. In this guide, I’ll share with you 6 free places to promote your gig for free and boost sales.
Even after carrying out those optimizations, Fiverr may still not send you a lot of traffic. It’s almost like it already has its favorite sellers in every subcategory.
From my experience, traffic increases with promotion in Fiverr level—which is at the detriment of new sellers with zero sales and reviews.
Why should I promote or advertise my Fiverr gig?
Promoting a new Fiverr gig is more important now than ever—especially due to the huge competition now on the platform.
Most new sellers may have to promote their Fiverr gigs in order to quickly boost traffic and make sales.
There are literally thousands of freelancers offering the same job on the platform, so relying on Fiverr for traffic may prove insufficient.
The only way to quickly standout is to put in place a good gig promotion strategy that will help you beat your competitors.
6 places to promote Fiverr gig free
Yeah, that’s right. I’m sure you know YouTube very well. Who wouldn’t know the second largest search engine in the world?
If you’re a YouTube creator like me, then you’ll be aware of how much power YouTube videos wield.
In my opinion, YouTube is the easiest and cheapest resource available to promote practically anything online.
If you’ve not started using YouTube to your advantage, then now’s the time.
How do you get started?
It’s simple! All you need to do is create and verify your YouTube account. And once you are done doing that, you can start creating videos to promote your Gig.
I’ve stumbled upon videos promoting Fiverr gigs several times. One video had the caption: “best Fiverr logo designers to hire in 2018”. And of course, the person who uploaded that video featured her own gig among the list of gigs. Guess what! that video has amassed thousands of views—which hasn’t stopped increasing.
After uploading your video, you must add a link to your gig in the description section of that video. With that, you can easily send traffic to your Fiverr gig.
How’d we forget to mention Facebook. The largest family and friends social platform turned multi-billion dollar corporation.
Facebook is supposed to be a place where family and friends connect and share memorable pics, events, and hosts of other family and friends related stuff. Well, according to Mark.
Facebook is, however, more than just the family and friend platform now. Advertisers spend billions of dollars annually to promote their businesses on Facebook.
Facebook is a full-fledged advertisement platform. You can easily pay Facebook to send traffic to your Fiverr gig. But since the reason you clicked this post is because you want to promote your gig for free, I’ll share with you how to easily achieve that.
If you’ve been using Facebook long enough, then you must have a group you’re attached to or created yourself. If it’s your group, you can go ahead a post a link to your gig in a polite manner.
If it’s not your group, you can ask for permission from the group admin to do that. If you’re granted that permission, fine; but if not, look for another group to try your luck.
A simple way to promote your gig without having to request permission from anyone is to share with your family and friends.
However, most freelancers are not comfortable with that. Maybe because they don’t want people to know they work on Fiverr.
It’s not something you should be shy about, though. Fiverr is a legitimate way to make money online. The sooner you begin to accept what you do, the earlier you begin to do better at it.
A lot of people know linked in very well. But knowing it is one thing, getting the best out of it is another.
in case you don’t know what Linkedin is all about, I’ll just go ahead and give you a brief intro.
Linkedin is a platform that allows you to easily create a social and professional profile online. It also enables you to connect with potential employers or organization in search of your talent.
All you have to do is create a profile that fits your profession to get connected with employers.
Now, you’re not trying to get a job on Linkedin. Your utmost goal is to promote your Fiverr gig for free. That’s why you’ll need to build your profile around your Fiverr gig.
List the main service you render on Fiverr and include a link to your Fiverr gig for free.
After building your profile, you can begin to join groups where you’ll contribute valuable points to discussions. People will deliberately click on your profile to know more about you—and from there, get redirected to your Fiverr gig.
The number one forum to promote your gig for free is on the Fiverr forum. Many freelancers have never visited the forum for once—which is completely wrong.
It’s a place to quickly get noticed by buyers, other sellers and the Fiverr staff.
If you visit the forum often, you’ll get enough opportunities to answer questions asked by new freelancers.
Remember to contribute intelligently to discussions in the forum. With that, people will get compelled to click on your profile to know more about you. Some of them will end up visiting your gigs to know the services you render. This gives you a huge chance of attracting a new buyer.
Other forums you can promote your Fiverr gig for free include:
Forums are free places to promote your Fiverr gig. But remember never to spam these forums. If you do, your account may get banned.
Here’s how it works, most forums allow you to provide a link to your personal website / blog. But in this case, I’m certain you’d prefer a link to your freelancer profile or your favorite gig on Fiverr.
If you know Medium very well, then I needn’t stress just how easy it is to use Medium to get yourself popular. Medium is a platform that will help you make a post quickly go viral.
Using medium should, however, be done creatively. I once read a post on Medium by a freelancer talking about how a scam firm contacted her offering to give her a job.
She went though a few of the recruitment processes only to detect later that it was a scam firm.
The story was quite interesting to me and to many other people; and had attracted thousands of views. Just below the post, a link to her Fiverr profile was added.
The marketing strategy she used here is really simple; however, not too many people know how to pull it off.
She used that article to announce herself as a content writer, and added a link to her content writing gig.
Now, that’s what I call ‘top-notch gig promotion strategy’. That blog post will continue to send her Fiverr gig free traffic for many years to come.
6. Your own blog
This, I must confess, is the best free platform to promote any Fiverr gig. If you own a blog, you can add links to your Fiverr gig to any section of your blog without requesting for anyone’s permission.
You can even write promotional blog posts for your Fiverr gig, showcasing your astuteness and portfolios.
It’s cheap to create a blog, nowadays. With $2.75 per month, you can create a professional looking blog hosted with Bluehost.
If you can’t afford to pay $2.75 per month, then you can as well make use of free blogging platforms to promote your Fiverr gig. I recommend you use blogger.com.
I hope with this guide, you’re able to promote your Fiverr gig for free and boost your sales.
