This is meaningless. When someone likes/saves your gig, it’s so they can return to it later and potentially make a purchase. It serves no other purpose and doesn’t help you any other way.

Being online for 10 hours a day doesn’t do anything either. Even if a potential buyer is searching gigs by who is online, they will likely choose the person with the more professional looking gig. Instead try spending those 10 hours on improving your overall gig.

There is no trick. The biggest effort/struggle in getting your first order is creating a high quality gig page with no spelling/grammar errors. Also, if you’re trying to sell something that 500 other people are also selling you need to describe what sets you apart from everyone else. What makes you different to the 499 other people?

Suffer how? :rofl: Who told you that?

Anyway, there’s no rule. Some get their first order on their first day on Fiverr, some wait for weeks or months, some never get any orders.

How do you know what really helps when you don’t have any sales yet?

Yes i have suffered a lot and i’m still suffering now. :grimacing:

I did a lot of marketing to get first order but after that i got my first order through buyer request.
After doing some gig ranks i got order but i’m still sufferings it seems because of some fiverr bugs.

If you get any issues you’ll not get CS support until reaching top rated. So for newbies it’s challenging
But some of seller got order quickly. Only skill here don’t work, you may need some luck to play around in fiverr…just saying …:wink:
