Business has died


#1

In have been a top seller in Fiverr for nearly 6 years in voice over. My business has completely died. Have gotten just a small amount of orders over the past couple of weeks. My search ranking has dropped tremendously. I want to know if you have experienced this as well. I am constantly updating my profile to no avail. Just cannot understand why this has been happening. This has by far been my worst year

I m also experiencing he same situation like yours. I have joined fiverr in 2012. I used to get 5-6 orders & around 15 new message daily but now there is deep silence in my profile no new orders and messages. I couldn’t decide what to do. I only want to know is this the permanent issue or for just some time.

I do not know how after 6 years I can go from a fairly profitable business to nothing. After January business has never been the same. I hope this will change

Yes; Fiverr is evolving that I can say for sure and things are changing… and if their backend system got new update or what ever the case is; the “BUSINESS IS DEAD” or it could be due to new category PRO.
Anyway, best way to survive is to adopt and change your strategies accordingly.

What should I be looking at in order to increase business again?

The thing is, I have been very busy lately, but still wasnt ever at a stage of 15 messages a day!

The whole time that you guys have been getting tons of sales, there have been thousands of others struggling to do so, trying different things etc. I am one of those. I have been here for almost 2 years and it is only relatively recently that I have got a steady stream of new clients.
I used to spend hours working on BRs, promotion, low cost samples, etc.
For the vast majority of people on Fiverr, it isn’t and never will be a place where they get most of their income or even close to it. It isn’t a place where they just log in and can get started on their work. For most people, getting an order every other day would be great. As I see it, getting to the stage where one can have a full time income through Fiverr sales takes a lot of work aside from actual orders.

Last month was my best ever on Fiverr, yesterday I surpassed that. It has taken a lot of unpaid work to get to that stage, developing gigs that I believe people need and offering my skills in a way that is attractive and also gives the possibility for repeat business.

Back when there was an algorithm change and a deluge of posts like yours, I focused on making my business better, not on whining about lack of sales (not speaking about you here, check out posts from the last few months tho!). I also advised others to do the same and to help people in that, given that working with small businesses is what I do, I wrote a series of posts to help people to do it.
