Staying online will NOT guarantee more orders. This is a terrible tip, and terrible advice. The only thing staying online will do, is allow you to respond to messages sooner – which may, or may not, lead to orders later on. Fast communication does not guarantee orders either.
New sellers really need to stop posting this “tip” as a guarantee for more orders. It’s false. Incorrect, and leads to many new sellers complaining when this “guarantee” doesn’t come true. There are no sales guarantees by staying signed into Fiverr. Fiverr even states that that offer no sales guarantees at all, just because a seller has gigs on this site.
Buyers will purchase from you – whether you are online or not – if they want to work with you.
Also keep in mind, Fiverr is not a place where every buyer will send you a message before ordering. Some – a few – a minority – of buyers might message you first, but most will just place an order if they have need of your services.
And finally, staying online has NOTHING to do with gig ranking. Nothing at all.
You, and others… please stop sharing this false, and completely inaccurate “tip”. There are no sales guarantees of any kind on Fiverr, whether you are online or not.
