Don’t get me wrong! I don’t mean to discuss the matter of fairness in regards to how Fiverr decides to display its sellers’ Gigs. I am simply curious about buyers’ opinions about placing an order with a new seller without a stellar record like many old-timers. (Here I define old sellers as whoever started to list their services as early as 2011 when Fiverr first came into existence and who have had more than 1k orders and received 200+ positive reviews.)
With so many qualified and competitive old sellers in the market, how likely will buyers initiate a transaction with new sellers? If you are the buyer, would you prefer entrusting your project with old sellers to new ones? When and why will you give new sellers a chance? Do you seek out new sellers? Why?
As a latecomer to the Fiverr scene, I understand that I need to work extra hard and advertise widely to generate traffic to my Fiverr Gigs. I have also been reading tips about Gig promotion revising my Gig titles and descriptions accordingly. In two months, I have received seven orders and I am quite pleased with what Fiverr has brought to me. I’d appreciate more if someone can help me understand the buyers’ mindset a bit better.
