Promoting your Fiverr and Upwork gigs, and your gigs on other freelance marketplaces such as Flexjobs, Freelancer, We Work Remotely, etc on social media and other channels may increase visibility and clients as I’ve witnessed in almost a decade now working as a freelancer. However, marketing strategies vary. This article discusses the right and wrong methods to market your Fiverr gigs on social media and other online channels.

Working with other independent contractors may help you get more customers and work. Find other independent contractors in your sector and consider collaborating or cross-promoting.

Social media and other outlets should be monitored. Keep them involved. This shows potential consumers that you are devoted to your company and professional.
