According to Alexa, Fiverr is the 64th most popular site in the U.S. and the 131st most popular site globally, so having your Gig® appear on the Fiverr homepage is great exposure. Here are my direct observations and opinions about what it takes to get there.
1. A unique offering with a broad appeal
On the homepage, Fiverr showcases the breadth of services people can find.
This is a visitor’s first impression, so Fiverr displays a wide variety of Gigs which appeal to mass segments of visitors.
2. Something that people might be surprised to get for $5
A high-value Gig is a must and it will help you accomplish 3-5.
3. A high-converting Gig
Fiverr tracks a rolling 30-day conversion rate of each Gig — meaning the percentage of people who view an offering and then end up purchasing it. Sellers with high-converting Gigs have the potential to make more money with Gigs that have a proven track record of converting browsers into buyers.
4. A higher average order value
A higher average order value makes a Gig more likely to land on the homepage. Sellers who offer Gig Extras can significantly boost their earnings and grow their businesses faster.
5. Excellent feedback
A history of excellent feedback is essential. You need to be as close to 100% positive feedback as you can, and have a high percentage of buyers leave positive feedback. The number of reviews doesn’t have to be huge. I had between 60 and 70 positive ratings when I was featured on the homepage.
Important to Note: Your seller “Level”
It’s rare for anyone below Level 2 to be featured on the homepage. Level 2 means you’ve had 50 orders over a 60-day period. You can learn more about Fiverr levels here.
