How to let others know and hire my Gig
When I first joined fiverr, I didn’t have any tenants at first, but fortunately I did have a few contacts. At that time, I did it for a very cheap price, rated 5 stars, this assessment is used to increase credibility with others. When your reputation increases, they will hire you. When others know, they will find services that match the Gig name that we provide, or we will bring the service link to certain groups and forums to promote our services.
