After around 5 months of literally sitting on Fiverr trying my best to get any order through, this month and the previous have finally been generous to me and I think I may have the answer why. This is all hypothetical, but I do believe it plays some role in your exposure and overall success on Fiverr. First and foremost, I started on June of 2018, and up until last month, I usually opened Fiverr once or twice every 2 weeks to see if I’d gotten any orders, but to no one’s surprise, I didn’t. I started getting really active on Fiverr just last month and it paid off.
I’d do the following atleast an hour every day to at least make sure that my gigs are getting some impressions or clicks:
Send out as many Buyer Requests as you can, if you don’t see any, stay online on your phone or PC and refresh every once in a while.
Make sure your gigs all have EYE-CATCHING primary images. This is very important. Know how YouTubers create clickbait images but true titles? Well, it’s sort of like that. Just don’t go over the top. Something eye-catching is enough.
Now, these are only there to help you get more impressions and maybe clicks, but how do you go about converting those to orders? Well, there’s no fixed formula. Apply to Buyer Requests -people say you shouldn’t depend on it- but people on Buyer’s Request are looking for someone to get the job done. Write a well, and though-out proposal whenever you feel like you are qualified for the job. Know that Fiverr is a competition, and you aren’t entirely entitled to an order, or even any money for that matter.
I can go in a lot of depth, but increase your activity, sell yourself short sometimes for the early reviews, and hopefully things will kickstart for you. I have no rights to say this as someone who only has 3 reviews, but I’m quickly getting more orders in queue, and I can’t wait to see what the next months are hiding.
