FiverrClerks - From Fiverr Zero To SEOClerks Hero. Part 10.
** A little side note about competition.
Yes, it might be hard to become successful quick if there's lots of competitors who's providing the same type of services as you, but competition and competitors are great.
First of all, as a seller, you can browse your competitors services. See their descriptions and try to find a connection between them having lots of orders in queue and others who doesn't. You'll probably see a handful of really successful sellers whilst you'll see hundreds of more "unlucky" ones, with less sales.
Do some research. Try to find that special thing that makes them successful. How do they present their services? What's their titles? Do they use any specific CTA (call-to-action)?
Do they offer more than others? Less? Do they provide better or higher quality?
Well, you name it. Focus on finding some sort of answer which is a FACT and not something you take for granted to start with..
Something like; "they've been a member for 1 year more than me". That's not THE specific reason. Pardon me for saying it, but that's just a lame excuse.
Of course they'll have had a higher chance to make more sales than you if they've been a member for so many more months or years..
You'll have to do more than that. Find something of value. Something you can take advantage of.. And when you do. Beat them!
Deliver more. Deliver better quality. Do everything you can do better than others. That's how winning is done. That's what's going to get you that breakthrough moment and that's what's gonna give you recurring customers. Recurring customers is vital for huge success.. And that's what we're aiming for here!
START BIG and when time comes, start providing less. Start with 2 for 1 sales.. Start with 5000 followers instead of 2000 etc. When you've been doing this for a while and you've started to gain clients, recurring ones, you can start providing less.
Start to deliver 2500 followers instead. 50% less but you'll still keep your clients because they're satisfied with your work. Be smart about it though. You can't start delivering 500 or 1000 followers. You still need to deliver at least the same amount as other sellers but preferably a bit more, to keep you on the winning-side so to speak.
Now that we’ve got our gig/service/product up and running, we’re going to drive some traffic to it. The organic traffic from Fiverr, SEOClerks or any other marketplace you choose, should definitely bring you some visitors, but we should also use other methods to increase our sales.
There are tons of Facebook groups that are created specifically for Fiverr sellers to promote their gigs. Hence, you’re able to place your gigs in front of thousands of targeted eyeballs.
To find them, simply type related keywords such as “fiverr”, “gigs” or "services" and join the related groups. They typically accept members within 24 hours. The same goes for SEOClerks & Freelancer etc.
The way that we promote our gigs in forums for free is by using our signature links.
Here’s an example of a signature link: (My own from SEOClerks forum)
"UNLIMITED POTENTIAL CLIENTS! SUPREME BRAND BUILDING!"
This line of text is includes a direct link to one of my services on SEOClerks. And on top of that, I've also included my affiliate id. Increased chance of gaining both sales and affiliates. Hard to beat that when it's totally free advertising.
More on this..
Be Active! It's the best advice I can give you. This will help you drive traffic to your page. Do not spam every thread and topic with links. Answer peoples questions and contribute. There's no shortcuts when building reputation. It takes time and effort.
Both Fiverr and SEOClerks Forums are great options. Especially the "Advertise Your SEOClerks Service" and the "Service Reviews" sections are great. Think about that when you deliver your work! Think about advertising.. Offer your clients something extra for a nice review within the forum for instance.
Create a website/blog
Websites or blogs around your business shows that you're credible. If you don't have the necessary skills to make one yourself, do hire someone who can set you up with a professional site. Would probably cost you somewhere between $100 and $300 depending on the features you want. In case your site will be made using wordpress (chances are high that it will be), you'll have outstanding themes, both free and for a few bucks a piece. See this as investment. You invest in yourself and your business. The more effort you put in building your audience, the more money you'll earn in the long run.
Comment on blogs/articles
Search for relevant niche websites that have a blog and post articles that are relevant to what you are selling. Most blogs allow you to include a link with your post and if the situation allows it, you could even mention in your comment that you provide a relevant service on __________.
**Services/gigs from people who'll tweet or share
If you're about to use a gig or service where someone will tweet your message for all their thousands of followers to see. Make sure these sellers doesn't provide followers themselves. If they are, then go away!
Since they'll most likely tweet your message to all of their own fake followers, which ends up with no results for you. If you decide on Facebook shares instead, think of it this way. Why would someone provide a service for a measly $1 or $2 if they promote your link to let's say, 6 million Facebook users..?
Because they make posts in SUPER-LARGE Facebook Groups with NO activity what so ever. Which means, no results for you.
With that being said, this could be an incredible resource if you find the right people. It's often cheap and can bring you tremendous results. To narrow it down a bit further, I'll even give you a few examples of these types of services. Just to show you what we're talking about here..
• I will tweet your Message to my Real and Active followers
• Tweet Your Message To 155k Verified Celebrity Friends, Fans And Followers
Note that I am not affiliated with these in any way and I haven't actually used these myself either. However, these are highly rated & often used by others who claims to get good results.
Remember what I explained above..?
None will give you that much exposure for your website, products or services for a measly buck or two. Not if it would actually work. It's pure insanity. I could easily sell the same service for a couple of thousand dollars each, if they worked.. Besides that, why would any internet marketer provide such services to begin with..? All of them would keep those incredible methods for themselves.
You, me and everyone else should understand this, but the fact is, that there's several thousand people out there who's not. Which is the reason for these kind of services to exist.
A short note though.. Even if these kind of services are a huge "hit and miss" and 99% of the times a huge miss, I'd still spend a buck or two just for the sake of it. You could actually have that 1% in your favor that specific time you try it..
To make things a bit fun, and to keep talking about the 1%. Imagine 1% of 12 million people.. That would bring you some CRAZY results.. That would be 120,000 people who bought your service/product or who signed up to your list..
Seriously though, don't fall for these types of things. Do some research and look at the sellers other services before even thinking about this.. Read the reviews, take a look at the actual accounts they will use to promote your links. Check their followers accounts.. If they look fake, just stay away.
**Free classified ads
Another way to send traffic to your links is to use free classified ads sites. Classified ads sites receives tons of traffic every single day, and you could potentially be leaving a lot of money on the table if you do not take advantage of these. This traffic is not at all targeted, but you may never know when someone will come across your site. As it's easy to setup this, I'd spend a few minutes on doing this. At least for starters. Some say it's a total waste and others claims it to be incredible.. Do as you wish.
Youtube is quite underestimated, believe it or not. We all know that youtube is great for increasing traffic. There's literally tons of people using youtube as one of their main sources of traffic. And their main income.
However, it's not that common that sellers on Fiverr or SEOClerks for instance, are using it the same way. Some for sure but most sellers doesn't utilize it.
Let's say you provide voice overs, logo designs or facebook promotion. It doesn't matter. Just upload your video. The exact one you're using for the specific service is fine but you can use another one too.
Might not be the best way to attract new customers but it wouldn't hurt to just upload a video, right?
Share the video with your friends on facebook or twitter. Use relevant hashtags. Spread the word & traffic will come. Ask your friends for help. Tell them to like and share the video and the facebook post. Or let them retweet and favorite the tweet on twitter.
With relevant hashtags and the "word-of-mouth" you'll get increased traffic without a doubt, even if it might not be targeted traffic to start with, it's definitely traffic you shouldn't stay away from. You should obviously enter your service or product url within the description on youtube.
Cross-Promote And Upsell
Much like how you can build a list by providing a .pdf or .txt within your deliveries. You can use that same trick to promote your website/portfolio every time you deliver an order. Include your logo, your colors, your website name and include a clickable link so they can easily visit your site. This is an extremely effective way of sending a link to your buyers without actually putting the link in your messages. Now you can easily scale things up, build lists and make extra sales.
