I joined fiverr recently and my first issue was how to get buyer requests. When i opened the buyer request section, it was empty; I almost wanted to scream on top of my voice after a few days and it was still the same.
The Issue was getting buyer requests. Then I realized that new sellers do not usually see buyer requests. And it is because you are not yet recognized on the fiverr algorithm.
I started my fiverr journey just last month with this gig as a freelance brander for branding startup businesses: https://www.fiverr.com/s2/2a06c85b1c. I create good brand names and business ideas.
To be noticed by the system algorithm, you need some traffic on your gig, including favorites, clicks and if possible, orders.
It is also advisable that you keep your active rates up, as you show that you are an active member who is ready to sell.
There is a lot of competition on Fiverr. I think that is what we all need to remember.
