How often do you get direct orders without using BR?

Buyer requests, as we all know, is another good place to land jobs. However, without using it, how often do you get direct orders?

I get all my orders and regular buyers without the jungle (buyer request)

100% of the work I do here on Fiverr is direct orders.

I NEVER use BRs.

I’ve replied to maybe five (or less) since September. Since I usually reply with my current rate (which is often higher than their budget) I believe I haven’t had any requests from there since then. Before I’ve had slightly better luck but I refuse to write 30 thousand words for 50 dollars (in 3 days, too) now that I know how much work goes into writing so… It’s not that much of a loss.
(But two of my gigs are somewhat unique so I do get a decent amount of orders)

I used to get about 1 order every 30 BRs, but then I stopped. I’ve only sent some dozens in the last few months.

If you’re smart, BRs are a great place to start out, but stable/successful sellers never use them for a reason - they’ve already established their clientele through regulars and the search bar. It’s something you want to abandon later on, now I basically use it for a kick, like, “oh, let’s reply to this one cool offer out of 75 that just came up”.

I’ve gotten 1 or 2 orders from buyer requests, but most of mine are just direct orders!

All of my orders now are direct orders. However, when I was a newbie, I depended heavily on BR. Even when I got to Level 2, I would peek :eyes: in there off and on, and if I found something interesting, I would apply. I always give my regular rates.

I was lucky enough to find a few regular buyers who still order from me after three years and have become friends of a sort.

I am lucky enough to have never had to resort to BR. I have gotten all my orders through buyers contacting me or ordering directly.

I never use BR, so all my orders come directly.

I have never once used the BR section of the site in my 8 years here.
