A word of advice for new sellers without orders


#1

Hey :sunny:
I wanted to address something crucial today. I’m a relatively new seller on Fiverr too, I have been improving my gigs on proofreading&editing for the last couple of days.
I assume most of you already know that going through buyers requests is essential for boosting up your sales, but it can sometimes be a little more complicated than that.
You should also keep in mind that since your lack of reviews is a disadvantage to your sales, you should aim for the lowest price possible, no matter what.
Assume there’s a guy in need of a service that you provide, stating budget of $50. In your case, that unfortunately does not mean that you should offer him your service for $50 upfront. Try to make it as low as possible, like $20. Or even $5 would still work for you. Because it would almost certainly guarantee a sale there and then. A guy looking for a $40 service will be eager to go for a $5-$10 service.
Remember, if you don’t have any reviews at all, you don’t get to be the judge of the price :confused:

I agree with sinansmeth908. When I started, I offered for $5 what my competition was offering for $50.00. I also offered it in 24 hours when my competition was delivering in 4 days. This fueled my orders.

After 100 deliveries, I slowly raised my prices to what the competitors were doing.

zonnorainn, I was hesitant like you, but I had no problem changing the rates. Some clients stayed, but I also gained $50.00 clients. These new clients were interested in a $50.00 product and were not interested in a $5.00 product.

Now about 4 years later, I have delivered over 5000 orders.

What if Fiverr isn’t showing you any buyer requests? They don’t even appear to be showing my gigs in the searches. I have exactly seven views in a week.


#10

I could do that its kind of impressive keep it up


#11

You forgot to mention about having ‘Patience’. :roll_eyes::neutral_face:


#12

Nazia patience is to hope without hoping. Patience is like doubting yourself and skill when you see no order


#13

Have you noticed that OP’s account is gone, and that some of you are responding to someone who is no longer here?
