I am a Newbie On Fiverr (I am a web developer) and it’s been 3whole days already, since I joined Fiverr and I still haven’t gotten any order yet, I wanted to know how long it was before you guys got your first order, and what you did that got you your first client.
Welcome…wait please good days coming.
I happened to get an order a few hours after launching my first gig but it took a little while to get to 10 completed orders… about a month. Everybody’s gigs start off slow. The best of luck!
Welcome to the Fiverr forums.
I waited 3-4 months. As for what I did, it wouldn’t matter if I told you, as I’m in completely different categories than you.
You only have 2 minutes of read-time shown in your forum profile. Check out the Tips For Sellers category (with filters applied --> forum.fiverr.com/c/Fiverr-Tips/tips-for-sellers/l/top/all?order=views). You’ll find hundreds of threads offering advice on a variety of things to consider and/or improve. (Note: Not all advice can apply to all gigs or categories. Be sure you check multiple sources as there are some false tips, even among the top threads.)
It takes a lot of work to make it as a freelancer, so be sure to research and plan accordingly.
“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.” (Attributed to Benjamin Franklin)
Be patient dear and always work hard to achieve your goals.
I’ve got my first order via Buyers request after 2-3 days for a fantasy book cover after only sending 3 offers. But apparently I was super lucky on this one. From what I’ve read on the forum this does not happen very often.
I can’t even find buyers request on my profile
