It finally happened. After a year of working through Fiverr, having successfully completed over 300 orders and having received glowing responses from most of my clients, I managed to land my first 1-star review. It stings, sure it does. But it’s there, for all the world to see.
Nevermind that the client left false information in his review and expected $50 worth of work for $5, but Fiverr CS won’t remove the rating. So I now find myself in a spot that I’m sure many other sellers often do as well. How will this affect my rankings? Will I notice a drop-off in sales? However, worrying never solves anything, so I’ll get back to doing what I do best, which is create 5-star quality content for clients!
But this situation leads me to poll our community with the same questions I’ve asked above:
What was it like when you got your first negative review? Did you panic or just take it in stride? By sharing your comments here, you’d be doing a lot in helping calm the fears of other sellers that are faced with what to expect when garnering a poor review.
