Fiverr is a non-traditional freelance marketplace. What does this mean? Well, in a non-traditional marketplace, freelancers post their services (called as gigs), and buyers themselves visit their profiles to hire them for their freelance jobs. You will see thousands of sellers with numerous gigs competing for each freelance service on Fiverr. The ones appearing on the very first page take the lead. They have greater chances of being selected by the buyers.
One of the prerequisites to rank a gig on the first page is keywords research. Since Fiverr has a lot of competition these days, it’s hard to compete with generic keywords. So you have to target less competitive keywords just like doing SEO (search engine optimization). How can you get insights for such keywords? Fivlytics is a handy analytics tool in this regard. It extracts all the useful information about any keyword. Using these pieces of information, you can easily find the right keywords that can rank your gig.
It’s a 100% free tool that provides:
- Keyword analytics
- Gig rank checking
How to use Keyword Analytics feature?
This feature of fivlytics tells you about different information related to a keyword like total number of gigs, number of pro sellers, number of online sellers, average rating, average price, and the number of gigs by countries, etc. To use this feature:
- Go to fivlytics website and click on the Fiverr tools.
2. Select Keyword analytics option in the drop-down list.
3. Type your target keyword and press analyze keyword.
By analyzing all these extracted data and trying with different keywords, you can easily find out the best ones for your gig.
How to use Gig Rank Checker feature?
Even if you have ranked your gig for some target keywords, you still need to check your gig’s ranking every now and then, as it can easily shuffle depending upon different factors like impressions, views, clicks, response rate, order completion rate, etc. So you should keep yourself updated to maintain your ranking. Fivlytics helps you out with its gig rank checker option. The procedure is quite simple as follows.
- Click on Fiverr tools and select Gig Rank Checker in the drop-down list.
- Type your username and target keyword that you’ve used in your gig.
- Click on analyze keyword.
It shows that my gig rank is 22, so it’s probably on the first page or at least the second page.
Fivlytics is a simple, smart and easy to use tool that you can use to keep your eye on ranking variation as well as keyword research. You don’t even need to sign up for it, but it’s better to use its Chrome extension for ease. Furthermore, there’s a blog on their site related to Fiverr which I found quite useful. I would suggest you to try this awesome tool with all its features.
PS: Recently, I found another useful feature of Fivlytics. You might have noticed that when you are sending response to a buyer request, you cannot see the name of the buyer until you send the response. By using Fivlytics, you will be able to see the clickable name of the buyer even before sending the response.
How can this feature be beneficial for you? Well, if you know the name of the buyer, you can make your response a bit more customized by starting from the exact name of the buyer instead of generic hi, hello. Remember that the more customized your response is, the more will be the chances that the buyer will respond back to you.
Another benefit of this feature is that you can check out the profile of the buyer and see the reviews of other sellers. By looking at these reviews, you can get an idea about the credibility of the buyer and can save yourself from bad buyers or even potential scams. Do check out these amazing features. Happy Freelancing!
