First Sale


How long does it take to get first order.

I would appreciate if anyone can provide feedback on my gig or suggestions

Thank you for reading and your time!


There is no single answer for your question. Some sellers saw their first sale within their first week. Other sellers waited a month or more. Sales depend upon what buyers are looking for. They will order from you if they feel that you are able to provide a service that they need.


I agree with @jonbaas, sales do depend on what they are looking for, buyers tend to purchase from sellers who have already had sales.

The best way is a waiting game, it took me around a couple of weeks to gain my first order and yet another week for my next. It eventually picked up from there, and I’m very thankful for my patience as everything kicked off from there.

Sharing your gigs across social media helps improve your gigs sale rate by three times, just make sure you share quality posts and use appropriate hash tags.

Optimise your gig for the right keywords, make sure that your gig has appropriate and strong keywords and try to focus on one of those keywords which you can add into the title of your gig, adding this to the description will also help.

Hope this helps, and best of luck with your sales!


Nobody can really answer how long it takes. Probably once you will get your first order and review things will start to pick up.

Your gig’s look ok but honestly their not a hard to come across skill, people tend to pay for things that are very hard for them to do on their own.

Keep up the good work!


Well, another thing if you could answer, after how many gig views you generally get your first sale?

Also, if you promote your gig through social media using the same hashtags over and over, will it not be spamming?
I guess, it will be.
So, how are you really supposed to promote your gigs through social media?
Thanks in advance!


I can tell you that it was about a month for me … but the first sale and review was from a friend who wanted to support me … I am on my 7 gig now … but very optimistic


Be very careful with that, it’s against Fiverr’s rules to exchange reviews in any form.


You don’t have any gig. I actually had a look at your profile.


I concur with @mariokluser - not showing any active gigs for you.
