Are You Not Getting Orders?


#1

Few Points that worth reading:

  1. A Gig’s position in search is based on seller performance over a set time period (among other factors), it’s not a static position that’s sorted by descending order. There are many factors to take into consideration when it comes to your seller performance, such as order cancellations, delivery rate, responsiveness, etc.

  2. If there’s a change at the top of the rankings, please be aware that it’s not permanent. There can be many other Gigs currently performing at a higher rate than yours, and that’s the reality of any marketplace. If other sellers are ranked higher than you by performing better than you (delivering early, getting 5 stars, communicating quickly) then it’s simply how the marketplace works. It helps it to grow and marginalizes competitive advantages/disadvantages for all sellers, so both new and old sellers can succeed.

  3. Fiverr only provide a marketplace for sellers and buyers to do business, and they can’t actually guarantee any sales. They also cannot guarantee a Gig’s position in search. I advise you to manually advertise your Gig on the Internet, as this would help to make it more noticeable, and hopefully lead to getting more sales.

  4. You can start by promoting your gig on social networks by using the tools available on the seller dashboard. Simply log in to your account, go to your Gig Page and share it with your family and friends using the social media icons listed there.

  5. You’re also encouraged to do market research to help improve your Gig’s conversion rate. This may help you to discover and improve things about your Gig that might be causing a buyer to select another seller’s Gig instead. By doing enough market research to determine what to improve on, your sales will improve.

Hope it worth reading.
