Obviously, no one knows how the algorithm works, but I’ve made this observation countless times:
Last month, I received an influx of writing orders related to chiropractic work and similar fields. These made up about 70% of my orders, the rest being random articles or jobs from repeat customers.
This month, I’ve suddenly taken on multiple new clients who work in various parts of the world either as wedding photographers or as editors for wedding websites. These projects all require me to look at photos and write elegant descriptions of them
I’ve noticed similar patterns with editing projects in the years since I joined Fiverr. Out of nowhere, I’ll have spurts where most of my new clients are coming from one particular field (financal planning for a little while, then yoga, then sewing/crafts, etc.).
Overall, I have a good mix of clients, but there’s obviously some sort of algorithm or marketing tactic going on if the bulk of my orders fall into one particular theme each week/month.
