Why is no one buying my SEOClerks service?
Why is no one buying my gig? I promoted it and gets enough traffic, why no sales?

Hmm, I think you should look to promote it to more startup businesses, the problem is most of the businesses who are looking for SEO already have a logo for their company and no longer require these services, they are mostly looking to improve their visibility in search engines.
@WebTrafficExp - I ACTUALLY wrote a post on your very question, but I haven't gotten it published yet (wonder why that is?), so there's no way for me to remember what I wrote (lol!). What I CAN tell you is that one of your keys is to raise your seller profile by posting as much as you're able (with as much quality & unique content) based on the skills and experience you have to help those in need.
You may want to investigate the other sites here in the Ionic Network (WordClerks, ListingDock, etc.) as well as other microjob freelancing (search term) sites, other forum-type marketplaces (DigitalPoint is one that comes to mind). Maybe you need to get creative and spend a few dollars listing your services on eBay or classified ad sites, or anywhere you notice you can slide in promo somewhere.
@WebTrafficExp, you're competing with thousands upon thousands of hungry-as-shark sellers and you're going to have to do what's necessary to get noticed. When you post gigs, do you use Social Media? All the IonicWare sites have the ability for you to broadcast to a number of channels right as your service is published, OR, you can advertise socially with the buttons to the upper-right of the screen above your service.
I know how it feels to be in a drought, but you're the only one who can make it rain on your service parade. I've tried to offer you a number of viable avenues of action. I hope you have all the success you're wanting in the (near) future.
It might be that your posted service has a lot of competitors or your price is to high that's why no one's inquiring about it. There's a lot of reasons, it's best to do some investigation and research.
Try improving your profile and check what your competitors' price offers are. You can give same price or lower yours a little bit. Well getting paid for a little is better than nothing right?
Try to market it around the internet. You can go around on forums and advertise it to users who may be interested in your services. You could also try to offer one or two of that particular service to someone for free and then try and get some testimonials which you can then show to your prospective customers.
