Fiverr can be a good money-maker when done properly.
But unfortunately most people do not know how to promote their Fiverr gigs.
The good news is that there really isn’t a lot do when promoting on Twitter. It’s literally a 5-step process.
Few things work and lots of things don’t.
So today I’m going to talk about the best ways to do it so you can see some success and eventually money.
Lets get started.
Step 1: Create a Twitter Account
Your Twitter account can either be personal or a business page.
Both will work, just know that you might look more spammy with a business page.
I recommend a personal page, that way you look more professional and you can build a relationship with others.
Step 2: Get Followers
A super simple way of getting TARGETED followers is to follow people that might be interested in your work.
Targeted being the keyword here.
There’s no point buying followers because most won’t even like what you’re offering.
Go to pages where your target audience hangs out.
Are you a graphic designer? Go to graphic designer pages and follow those following them.
Are you a content writer? Go to blogging pages and follow their followers.
Most won’t follow back but some will. Do this everyday and your followers will start adding up.
It’s not a fast way to getting followers but at least it’s targeted which is the best traffic you can get.
Step 3: Tweet Stuff Related to Your Gig
Talk about things that are currently trending or in the news.
People love to be in the know, so hearing your opinion about something that’s hot is a surefire way to get their attention.
I promise you this works 100%. It’s one of my biggest tips to grabbing your fans attention and have them coming back for more.
The aim of the game is attention.
You want to bring as much attention to you as possible. Attention follows money, that’s a fact.
The person with the most attention makes a lot of money.
- Add images to your tweets every now and then
- Link to trending news related to your industry
- Provide your opinion on news or trends
- And please use hashtags (especially in your promotional tweets)
If you’re a content creator you can use hashtags like #blogging #contentwriting #blogger #writinggig.
Mix them up with every promotional tweet so you don’t look like a spammer.
Step 4: Promote
Yes there’s a time when you have to promote your gig which is the whole point of this in the first place.
Keeping a nice balance between value and promotion is mandatory.
You don’t want to look like a spammer. You want to be someone in the know that they can trust.
Promotion strategy: We’ll be using the 80/20 rule. The 80/20 rule consists of 80% information/value and 20% promotion.
Step 5: Build Relationships
You are a professional that’s providing a service for others.
You need to act like you’re in the know, you are an expert in your industry and people would be lucky to use your service.
So never look like “just another spammer”.
Build relationships with people by replying to comments, retweeting stuff related to your industry, like their tweets, message them about how you love their tweets.
This builds rapport, rapport that can get you retweets in the future and they might even recommend your work.
Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I post?
Since you don’t want to look like a spammer you should only tweet about 10 times a day.
Spread them out over the course of the day and tweet your promotional stuff at peak times.
You can check when your fans are most active in your analytics.
Also you can use Hootsuite to schedule your tweets.
Do I need to schedule my posts?
No, but I definitely recommend it.
Scheduling your tweets ahead of time allows you to focus on other things like getting more followers, building rapport, learning the trends, etc.
How long will it take to get my first gig?
I can’t promise any gigs in the first day or two, maybe in the next week or two.
This is not a get-rich-quick method, it takes time and work.
The good news is that it’s a snowball effect. Once it starts it cannot stop.
So the hardest part is getting off the ground but once established as an expert in your field, you will constantly have work.
How much money can I make with Fiverr gigs?
I recommend offering different packages with higher prices, because that’s where a lot more money can be made.
Lets say you have a $5 and you get 5 gigs a day, not the best, a little difficult to make good money.
But what if you get 2 a day that’s $25 each? See the difference…literally doubled with only 2 people.
And the only way to get there is by over delivering and building good rapport with your customers.
Well there you have it, the fool-proof 5-step process that anyone can do to establish themselves as an expert in their field and make money in the process.
This is not a secret or some super magical way of promoting your Fiverr gigs.
It’s just a tried and true method that has worked since the beginning of Twitter.
Just remember that it’s not going to be fast.
Getting followers takes time, you’ll probably lose interest at times, but keep at it and eventually you’ll get some gigs.
Well thanks for reading.
I hope you learned a lot and you apply what you learnt to your online business.
Cheers and have a great day.
