Congrats! Take 5 min and pat yourself on the back, then move on to getting better, finding ways to add more value for them. Some buyers won’t use me now because even though I have over a thousand ratings, my queue can be far larger than some, and I’m no longer the cheap provider. (No matter if I have 5 or 15 in my queue, I’m still usually 24 hours or less, but some see my queue and select someone else… )
So there is plenty of room for you to start, because some will select you BECAUSE they know you are working hard to provide more. I’m always looking to improve, and that’s a constant, never ending refinement process.
BUT, I don’t do gigs cheap anymore because I have extensive experience. (I had that before Fiverr, but had to be validated on this platform…) So if we were in the same gig category, providing a similar gig, some buyers will select you because your queue is shorter, because you cost less, or maybe your gig video is stronger than mine (or a combo of factors).
It IS easier to get more gigs when you have more gigs, but starting out you play the game based on what you can provide. Things like fast turnaround, cheap prices, over the top service, etc.
Just don’t stop improving, because being cheap is hard to defend over time. Having a consistent high quality product that continues to get better, is a time tested formula for longer term success.
