Have you ever had a fiver dry spell?


#1

Have you ever had a Fiverr dry-spell . No new orders . No new messages. Till you start wondering whether Fiverr is down. or may be something is wrong with the Mobile App so you log into your profile on the laptop after days pass. : ))


#2

Yes. Regularly.


#3

Well at least it happens to everyone.


#4

Funny thing… For the last two weeks, I don’t even get messages anymore. :slight_smile:


#5

I think it’s happens to everyone…


#6

It definitely does. Even TRS see slowdowns. Sometimes they are kind of universal, like around holidays that are global or affect the largest buyer demographics. Some people see slowdowns in the summer when people go on vacation or self-employed business owners have kids at home and don’t work as much.

For many, though, it’s just an ebb and flow that comes for reasons you can’t always predict. Right now I’m fairly busy and have messages that I’ve answered but need more detail. Two weeks from now I might be in a slump. Who knows? Good luck! :wink:


#7

Sure all the time.


#8

The last month or so has been dry then a few, then dry and then a few. It’s been interesting.


#9

That certainly explains most of it . The ups and downs can also be due to the gig category .I am made to understand that different categories fluctuate differently .


#10

That is life on Fiverr


#11

Oh… yes. Fiverr dry spell, dating dry spell, weight loss dry spell - all at the same time (including now). Who knows…maybe they will all disappear on the same day? :slight_smile:


#12

lol… :smiley:


#13

Haha… too much dry spell for you. Hope it gets better for you before anyone else.


#14

thanks :wink:


#15

Yes, I have now. It’s terrifying. Although April was very good.


#16

As a newbie I don’t know any other spell yet


#17

Keep up the good spirit .

Hey,
See what other people in the same category are doing. Emulate some good tips.

In the beginning you need to over deliver. If others are doing 400 words for 5, be the newbie that does it for 800 for the same price. If others are giving one review for 5, give 3 reviews for the same price.
And once you get some orders and some reviews. Because you will. You can raise prices .

Create more gigs that are interrelated. Your aim in the beginning should be to gather some reviews.
In the Gig description for your Gigs, use keywords that you want to rank well for on fiverr.

All the best

I look forward to a dry spell every now and again. I have so much else in my life that isn’t getting done! Like vacuuming, showering, dressing… :slight_smile:

Hehe . Dry spells are a blessing for you. Then again, with the Gigs you offer, a break is necessary for you .
