So the question “how should I promote my gigs online” has been asked many times and has been answered many times. New sellers usually have a lot of trouble getting their sales up. But sometimes seasoned sellers also need an exposure boost. There are a lot of simple and relatively easy methods of promoting your gigs online. They may not work for a few people but for others they may improve sales because it depends entirely upon the time and effort given into promotion. I will list a few that I have been trying and seeing results with. (Sorry about my English)
1 ) the first thing that sellers with dropping number of sales can do is to Provide outstanding service to a client and if you think he looks happy with the results then throw in something for free. You can then request your clients to share your service with their friends and colleagues. People usually are lazy and even if they like your service they will be too lazy to press the share button or copy the link from your gig page and send it to their friends. So to make it easy for them you can add the link below your message so that they can easily copy paste it without struggling to find it.
2) Join the forums where you can offer your services, contribute positively and in your signature you can add the banner that leads people to your gig. For examples I am a logo designer and some of my clients are real estate agents and advisers. I usually join some good real estate forums. And in my signature I offer services of logo and marketing material design. Do not spam forums with links to your gig. That would only annoy people and will get you banned. Contribute positively and let the possible clients contact you by them self.
3) facebook is a great source of free marketing, again make sure you do not spam, create your own page where you explain your services. Ask friends and family to join and share your page. Then join the pages that you think are related to your gig. Again contribute positively. Make sure you comment and post using your page as your profile. Potential clients will contact you automatically. The name of your page should describe your service. But make sure you keep the name brief and self explanatory. A good example would be
“ $5 banner design ”
This was what I have been practicing with and I am seeing results, but note that it takes time and patience. Share what you think worked for you and correct me where ever I am wrong. Best of luck and happy selling..
