How long does it takes for you to get your first sale on Fiverr?

Hey, I have just started selling on Fiverr around 3-4 days ago and I am not getting orders. I have currently 4 gigs active, but so far no orders yet. So, I was just wondering how long does it normally take for a new seller on Fiverr to get their first order? Thanks :slight_smile:

p.s I am doing graphic designing

“and book covers although I’m not that good at book cover.”

Suggest you remove the above (copied) from your profile description as it does not come across as professional and will put many buyers off.

Some sellers take months to get their first order!

Hi @andrew_556 welcome to Fiverr. You need to promote your gigs… Orders won’t come by itself. Use socialmedia, spread the word on your own communication channels, whatsapp, everything.

And what do you offer? Is it original/different than other Fiverr-enthusiasts?

Hi, yeah that’s something I haven’t tried yet. I will promote my gigs on social media now. Thank you, appreciate it.

Hi @andrew_556 great to see you’re learning everyday… same here. Fiverr still has a lot of secrets in strategy/selling/orders/gigs for me too. Just use trial and error. Do something for 2-4 weeks, see if it works. If there are no results, alter your strategy and go with another mindset. Keep on working.

Thank you, you are being very supportive :smiley:

No problem. If there’s anything I can do to help, just notify me.
Being friendly and helpful is free. :wink:

I surely will do it!

Same question from me. We need to practice our owned skills first

Unlimited revisions are never a good idea. (100% money back/satisfaction guarantee are also very risky.)
Your restaurant menu gig description need to clearly differentiate what perks are part of which package. (How are they all ‘1 page’? Isn’t ‘double-sided’ automatically two-pages? Note: NOT an expert in this gig category. Maybe add question to FAQ?)
Always check your gig thumbnails from your profile. The text is unreadable in most of them because they have been cropped oddly. (The white-text-on-peach is just plain hard to see.)
There are enough English errors in your gigs and your profile that I don’t believe that “Languages: English - Native/Bilingual” is accurate. It should be ‘conversational’ or ‘fluent.’ Consider adding your native language to your profile as ‘Native/Bilingual’
