Have sales gone down recently?


#1

For some reason I’ve had literally no sales last week and it’s making me worry that I might have accidentally messed up my gig. (I made a few edits last week)
Is this for just me or have sales actually gone down?


#2

Yes, no, yes. The holidays here in the US might be a factor


#3

Yes, you’re not alone. It went completely silent for me too. And no, it’s not because of the holidays. Orders were aplenty this time of year, last year and two years ago. I remember still working on several orders even on New Year’s Eve.

I was very busy last 2 years when year end but this year, it is almost no orders , not sure why !

I’ve seen a nice steady drop in Fiverr generated sales (i.e. Customer’s I did not bring to my Gigs) My return customer’s are the same, my marketing sales are the same, but anything from Fiverr searches is almost gone 100%.

Oddly, a friend of mine’s gig has taken off in Fiverr generated search sales. 4 months ago his gig had 3 sales, 2 cancellations, and 2 late deliveries which ended in 1 star cancellation reviews. He left the gig for dead and hadn’t even logged in to fiverr since. A month ago his gig took off again. Better impressions than all my gigs combined on his one gig.

I like to follow the @jonbaas model and not rely on algorithms to bring me sales. I work to bring customers to my gigs, but I admit it is disheartening to see your numbers drop when you know you are working very hard to do good work.

I feel it has @aashishah. I’ve seen a drop in (new) sales over the past week. The only projects that I’m currently working on are for my regular buyers. I tried my hand at replying to a few Buyers Requests today. Hoping some convert. Have you tried that?


#7

I’m seeing a drop in views and clicks as well, not sure what the cause might be. I have tried to see if I could send offers to buyer requests but I am lucky if I find one or two that are relevant to my gigs.


#8

This really is strange then.


#9

Yeah I think something is up with the Fiverr algorithm. Better not rely on the searches.


#10

I am a new seller but my sales were rising steadily up until last week. Now everything has just gone silent after Thanksgiving.
Buyer Requests don’t show up for new sellers apparently, so I can’t do that.


#11

Yeah same! My impressions are rising but clicks and views have gone down significantly. My gig comes in the first two pages too. I don’t know what the issue is.
