I can't get a sale


Hi I made a few gigs some time ago, and i haven’t made a sale. I have tried:
Using video
Making my friends buy my gigs and leave a good review
I think my gigs are awesome, but somehow they are not really being shown in the search results. Are they bad?
Is Fiverr glithing? What do I do?


Keep in mind, you’re in saturated fields. The most saturated if I’m not mistaken. So the competition is tough.

If I can make a suggestion - use the Buyer Request feature and respond to Requests for the Services you offer. Send out 10 a day and eventually, you will get a response. Then from there, just build your reputation.

When responding to the Requests, make yourself stand out from the rest. Whether it’s pricing, quality or our customer service.


I am having similar luck lately. I remember reading that it was due to the promoted gigs feature but can’t be sure, I was getting enough sales to have reached lvl 2 by now but suddenly after the new year sales have like vanished, views have dropped and even buyer inquiries have dropped tremendously, currently I am doing just what Oenomauscrixus said, looking through the request section.


Dear Grap:

What name do you like to be called? Your customers want to know what to call you.

I took a quick look at your profile:

Your profile image: No suggestions.
Your log line: This is a slogan that appears below your user name. You don’t have one. You should get one and make it cool.
Your profile text: Could be longer. Tell Buyers your name.

ALL your gigs should have video, 3 images, 2 pdfs (for more samples), and so on…

Make a video of yourself talking to the camera, because this approach garners IMMEDIATE RESULTS. Include additional samples in the video!

Many Sellers start slow and build over time. In the meantime, you could create memes what not and post them to social media. If you develop a following, people will start to seek you out on Fiverr. That’s if you can create funny or amazing images that stand out.

Good luck,

P.S. Aditya: Much of this advice applies to you. As you are not a cartoonist*, you’d probably be wise to use a color photo of you. Did Emma Watson give her consent for you to use her likeness?

*In that sense that none of the gigs I looked at are for cartoons…
