The Man With a Business Plan: Fiverr Super Seller Bizgrowthcoach

The Man With a Business Plan: Fiverr Super Seller Bizgrowthcoach
Fiverr Editorial Team

Meet bizgrowthcoach (aka Marty). He’s a business consultant who offers his Gigs to startups, solopreneurs and small businesses on Fiverr. He created his first Gig in April 2012 and less than 4 months later, in July 2012, he was promoted to a Top Rated Seller.

Marty is a true Fiverr success story. We asked Marty to share some of his secrets and he said:

I’m giving away the farm here, but it’s not about me. I want every person to be successful on Fiverr like me.

Here’s more from our newest Fiverr Super Seller.

1.) Plan, Prepare, Launch, Engage

The best strategy is don’t think Fiverr is like Craigslist, where you put stuff up on a website and people just send you money. You need to make a plan, commit to success, discipline, persistence and hard work.

Before posting my first Gigs, I spent several weeks planning and preparing. I read every detail in Fiverr’s TOS [Terms of Service], did some research and learned which Gigs would be most popular.

Using the Google Keyword Tool [now Keyword Planner], I found the most relevant keywords and keyword combinations (low competition and high searches) for my Gigs. Then, I highlighted the top 5 to use over and over.

In summary, I followed my PPLE Method (Plan, Prepare, Launch, Engage) that I teach in my Gig.

I built my marketing plan, mapped out the places where I would engage people and compel them to go to my Fiverr Gigs.

2.) Gig Promotion is Paramount

Use your well researched keywords and implement them using multiple marketing channels.
Sites I post on include LinkedIn, Quora, my various blogs and some curated news sites like Scoop.it. Twitter and Facebook posts are scheduled, and my tweets incorporate hashtags for keywords and #Fiverr.

I comment on other’s blogs. On visual media sites like Pinterest, I post the cover graphic of my Gigs and write a short, compelling call to action message.

With my complete social media marketing mix I build relationships, answer people’s questions, ask them thought provoking questions and show them where to find more information. I get them at their “Point of Want.” Only after they get to know me, like me and trust me they’ll buy my Gigs.

3.) Video Sells

I create 2 to 3 minute YouTube videos to introduce and inform about my top selling Gigs. These videos are posted on a wide range of social media sites. The goal here is to drive people to my YouTube page which then links back to my Fiverr Gigs.

I was surprised that quite a few blogs and article publishing sites picked up my YouTube video and posted it on their site. That really helped my search rankings and keyword exposure.

4.) Tracking Your Success

Sites like bit.ly help measure promotional success. Check Google search to see where Gigs and videos rank in organic search results, Fiverr stats for Gigs and to monitor conversion rates. By refining descriptions, you can improve your conversion rates with time.

I created a spreadsheet to track my complete social media postings, results, and engagement levels. I consistently achieve an 18 to 25% conversion rate on my top two Gigs. If you follow eCommerce or any online marketing statistics, the average is around 1.5% and if you hit a 4% conversion rate – it’s been a great month.

    • jmhhacker

      Hi I joined fiverr 6 months ago and have delivered over 4,000 orders and 30 thousand us dollars…. Half my orders come from fiverr the other half from my own promotion. I use gplus pinterest instagram twitter and blog posts. Those networks reach over 300,000 people. I am building those networks every day. Ranked 560 in USA on Gplus now made a fiverr business page that ranks very well. Things like that…

      I have a question how are the super sellers chosen on gig ideas and rating just curious as I thought I may have a sot Congrats Bizgrowthcoach

    • Handsome http://fiverr.com/vebtools

      me too

  2. DTong Sports

    Congrats Coach! Sounds like a proven business strategy, I definitely took a couple points from this. I often change my Hash Tags when posting to Twitter, LinkedIn, and more importantly Google +. Some I keep consistent for SEO reasons of course, but changing them every once in awhile can help you expand your reach and hit a market you didn’t think you had a piece of!
    Can’t wait to see my cartoon character in the same cape soon!

    Congratulations marty, great source of Fiverr knowledge.

  34. Kabrina [Fiverr.com/kabrinam]

    Wow, well done! Thank you for sharing the tips with us all. I have them saved and am creating a lengthy but important to do list! I’m no super seller (yet) but my tips to new sellers would be:

    1. Be as clear as possible in your description and instructions when explaining what the gig includes and update them to resolve any ambiguity you find immediately. I learn from my customers every time they assume something is included or when my wording is confusing and always update my gigs to keep up with those issues.

    2. Remember what your work is worth and stick to your guns on what comes with the gig. The prices for your work are already very reasonable on Fiverr so don’t shy away from requiring those gig extras on certain orders.

    3. Use your extras wisely so they sound intriguing and make sense as an add-on to your gig. Think of who your customer is and what you would want to see offered as an extra service should you be in their shoes.

    I’m sure most people know this already but I figured I’d share anyway!

  35. http://fiverr.com/YourBizBoost

    Well for me, I really have no need of promoting my gigs as most of my buyers are returning clients and also referring others to me as the saying goes, he who has the honey does the bee pursue.

    I sell gigs to help marketers build their lists and so far, I have been getting lots and loads of clients!

    Fiverr has been a relief to my finances!

  50. iamlegendryggs

    You are good……Thats just it…. Congratulations

  51. iamlegendryggs

    I just refreshed my page after my last comment to find out that i have just made “level 2″ seller… haha, Fiverr is mouthed. How do I begin to show my gratitude to fiverr…

    I will make it brief… To have sold over 50 gigs ranging from Creating ‘catchy’ brand names, to Great company Logos and Business cards et al.. in the last two months is overwhelming.

    The Super seller and Kabrina above have said it all….
    but i must add, the impossibility of new buyers.

    We have difficult buyers who insist on seeing the done job before placing an order… which is the backwards of the fiverr procedure.

    I have had one too many of them, and what i did was first to lecture them on the fiverr rules and regulations of which most of them are new and have not taken their time to read the ‘regulations’.

    I am patient with them,i strike a deep conversation with them buy telling them the value of the job they want done, in real life, and how cheap it is here on fiverr. #AdvantagesOfFiverr.
    I welcome them to fiverr in some cases by doing that job for them as freebie because i want them to trust in fiverr and see integrity in the sellers here-in and of course the quality of job they can get for just $5.

    In all i end up winning them. They always return.
    Thank you fiverr.:*

  52. Felicia Holman
