💡 Guide: Get your First Order

The problem likely is with your niche. I see you have one gig in proofreading and editing. The buyer requests you’re able to see are only those that have the same or similar tags as your gigs.

Many sellers post on the buyer requests page but, at least in my experience, I wouldn’t say that that constitutes the majority of the requests.

I have one writing gig but I also have many gigs in programming and design and I usually see far more buyer requests than seller requests in there. I think you should try adding more gigs with diverse tags to see more of the buyer requests

But it seems posting of seller requests among buyer requests does work as those sellers often get offers. I do get tempted to do same but refrain as I get worried about the fiverr threat of ranking lower in searches.

… and having your wrists slapped by Fiverr, but hey go ahead and try it if you want to join the ranks of sellers being seen as scammy spammers, but I do hope you don’t - I’m sure you’re better than that!

They get offers from sellers looking for work (or from bots), not from buyers looking to hire someone.

Buyers can’t even see buyer requests, unless they’re also sellers who offer the same type of service.

Calling @catwriter ‘Brother’ is a sure fire way for her not to help you! Catwriter is definitely a girl!

Nobody knows what the ranking algorithm is I’m afraid.
