In this Guide, I want to share with you exactly (step-by-step) How to promote Fiverr gigs and increase your sales.
Also, I will share with you the top marketing strategies that made me publish my own Services website like Fiverr and sell on it directly without any third-party websites like Fiverr, Upwork, or freelancer.
Here is a screenshot of my services site:
you can see that my services pricing is not that cheap, so I rely mainly on few clients that pay high prices instead of wasting a lot of time with many clients for 5-10$.
But anyway, what I will explain works in any scenario where you are a beginner selling small services or a professional freelancer who want to scale up his/her business online.
What you will read now, allows you to build a real successful online business with freelancing and not only get some fast clients or orders on Fiverr. So Let's Start!
How to Promote Fiverr gigs and Services?
Mainly we have 5 strategies to follow to get new clients and orders on Fiverr:
- Cold Mailing
- Social Media
- Content Marketing
- Paid Ads
So Let's start now with the fist strategy.
1. Cold Mailing
One of the best ways to market your services is to send cold emails to specific people who may be interested in your service.
What is Cold Mailing?
Simply it is to Search for targeted email lists (ex: CEO of certain companies), and send an email trying to turn the target prospect into a customer.
Let’s take an example to make things simple.
Let’s say, your service is about “Digital Marketing” and let’s be more specific, it's proving SEO services. so your expected clients, are all website owners who want to rank their websites on Search Engines and get more traffic.
“Note: SEO: search engine optimization”
So, now you know the target audience. What you will do is to send emails to those people and check if they are interested in your service or gig.
The Main Two Questions here?
- How to get those emails?
- How to send bulk Cold Emails?
Let’s start with the second question and see how we can send bulk cold emails?
Note: bulk means sending like 500–1000 or more emails per day.
We can achieve this with several methods:
- Gmail/Gsuite + Gmass Mail merge extention.
- Use a cold mail service like Woodpecker.
- Build your own cold emailing system.
To make things simple for you as a beginner, you can start with the easiest method which is connecting your Gmail account to Gmass, then your Gmail account will be able to send bulk emails, schedule, track, and more…
It will be like a small email marketing system with the help of Gmass.
so when you compose an email, you will see something like this:
this is the simplest way.
It’s highly recommended to use a business professional email and not your free Gmail account, so when you send emails, you will look professional and give more trust.
In my case, I have a dedicated email for services, which is:
To get a business email, you can register one with Gsuite from google for 5$ per month. I really recommend doing this, you will look professional.
I have a full tutorial about setting up Gsuite, you can check here:
Or if you would like to learn more about cold emailing, I do have a full training series about on my channel, you can check here: H-EDUCATE
Let’s now move the second question, How to get emails?
Also here we have 3 options:
To make things simple now as a beginner, you can start with online scraping which is free, and it will be an easier way to test now. I explained how to scrape emails in detail here:
The second method is to search manually the web for websites and check the contact page as an example, and build up an email list.
After you do this, and collect some emails, don’t forget that you need to validate those emails to ensure they are valid, and you can do this for free using H-supertools Free Email Validation service.
Great! so this is the First Marketing strategy.
By the way stick to the end, where I will share with you a video tutorial on how to do this in action.
2. Fiverr Gigs Promotion with Quora
It is one of the best places to promote your business and grow online.
Quora is my daily routine where I sit like 20–30 minutes every day answering questions and look at the results:
Yes, 12K views the last 7 days! it's really a great place if you want to get fast traffic to your services and get more sales.
DONT’ spam, and give real value!
I explained in detail how to use Quora and the best practices to drive traffic from in this video:
A good tip here is to create answer templates! since on Quora, there are a lot of common questions, you can then copy and paste, and publish your answers.
MAKE QUORA YOUR DAILY ROUTINE!
3. Social Media
No, use social media to build and grow your presence online, and let people trust you, then you will see how you will be contacted every day from people asking for your services.
In my case, I do have my own Facebook group, but I never paste links to my services, I just post valuable content, and every day, my messenger and my inbox is full of service requests. that I honestly reject 70% because I don't have time to follow.
4. Content Marketing
You can create anything like Blog Posts, YouTube Videos, online Courses, social media posts, e-books, podcasts, webinars and promote your services inside it!
One of my main keys of success Online is YouTube.
I highly recommend you start a YouTube channel and a blog, then you can promote your services on. It’s that simple.

5. Paid Ads.
Even though I don't recommend using paid ads as a beginner to promote services and gigs. a little advice is not to use Facebook or Google Ads to test.
instead, try Quora Ads.
Simply because in this way you will target the exact person that is looking for a solution to his problem. so it's about topic targeting.
Here are the main 5 strategies to start promoting your Fiverr gigs online or any service.
To sumup, Create a YouTube channel and a Blog, and publish real value.
Get traffic and grow your channel using the methods I showed you, and don't forget to take advantage of Quora, It's really very important!, to get more traffic and grow Online.
All this, inline with cold mailing and getting more clients.
Hope this helps!
