Whining isn’t going to get you orders. I don’t know who told you that you can just make a gig on this platform and people will come running to toss their hard-earned cash at you, but that is not how this works.
You are going to have to grind. You are going to have to market. You are going to have to utilize social media, and blogs, and any way possible to get your name out there. This is especially true if you sell one of the “money-maker” gigs that people write about in “10 top easy skills to learn to make money” blog posts.
This includes writing, business card creation, “graphic design,” proofreading, translating, etc. Unless you are offering something unique than you are competing against a ton of other people who are offering similar, if not better services. People who have been on here for years and years, and work all over the internet.
You are competing against everyone else on the site. So you cannot just make a gig and expect money. You have to work and work hard.
Some people will get their first order within the first week of joining. Others will get their first order after months of waiting. It just matters how much thought you put into everything.
Make sure your descriptions are as error-free as possible. Nobody wants to order a gig that looks like it’s been in the garbage disposal.
USE YOUR OWN WORK! I can guarantee you that many of these “graphics sellers” that I have seen just buy stock images in bulk. Also, you are NOT Lindsey Lohan, use your real mug or a logo for your business.
If you started Fiverr in September because you need to pay rent on October 1st, I have bad news for you.
PROMOTE. PROMOTE. PROMOTE. There are hundreds of thousands of sellers on this site. You are 1 person. Be Waldo, not Jerry.
Working for yourself is not “Easy money.” Sorry to break your heart.
You can be successful if you are smart about it and work hard. You won’t be successful if you sit around all day, send copy-pasta requests in BR, and expect people to just throw money in the dark.
