How do you rate a good gig and how long before a newbie start receiving orders

Hi, I am new on Fiverr and I have a few gigs running. No orders so far, but I am hopeful. I’d like to know what defines a good gig and how long does it normally take to start receiving orders. Thanks

A good gig has several features including:

  • A welcoming, professional profile description
  • Detailed, professional gig descriptions
  • High-quality (and most importantly, original) service samples or gig video detailing the services
  • Offering of unique services that has a large market
  • Excellent response time
  • Dedication and professional conduct

These are just a few key elements, but the key is pure dedication. Everyone with high ratings had to market themselves consistently, and provide an excellent product. It requires patience, so there’s no timetable on when you start receiving orders. Market yourself through social media, find your market, and stay focused. In your field, there are 1000’s who do the same thing, so you have to be creative in order to stand out.
