How Fiverr Promoted gigs work
ust like Google Ads, Fiverr’s promoted Gigs is a paid advertising tool that let sellers promote their Gigs on Fiverr.
You will be paying on per click basis. The more you pay, the more clicks your promoted gig will achieve!
Using Promoted Gigs, you can now push your Gig to prime locations in category pages and search results, gain more visibility, and get more orders.
How to use Promoted Gigs
As a seller, Fiverr suggests promoting your best performing gigs. This means showcasing gigs with top reviews so you can increase your chances of converting visitors to orders. High-quality gigs with engaging descriptions and extra services are a great start.
Once you have your ad ready to go it is time to set the price you are willing to pay for the ad. Set the maximum amount you are willing to pay per click on your ad and the Fiverr auction system will take care of the rest. Remember, your chance of winning your ad spot goes up the higher you set the price.
When the ad is in place the system will calculate the minimum amount per click you need to pay so you can win against your competitors. Fiverr will recommend a price to bid, but if you want you can bid above or below that number. According to Fiverr, you only pay for clicks and you will never pay more than the maximum.
