Earlier today, I needed to order a service from Fiverr. Being an active user of Fiverr, I figured I should get what I am looking for in a couple of minutes. To my surprise, It took me more than an hour to finally find a seller I could order from. Here is why:
- Most of the sellers I found on page one had great reviews but I didn’t like their samples
- The pro sellers had exactly what I was looking for but they were too expensive
So I kept checking page 2, 3, 4, and so on. And I kept noticing how great sellers who deserved to be on page 1 were appearing on page 5 onwards.
I eventually ordered the gig from a seller on page 7 because his gig is exactly what I was looking for.
That got me thinking… could this be the reason so many sellers are complaining of reduced traffic? How come I had to go all the way to page 7 in order to get what I was looking for? Why would such
a great seller be listed on page 7 when others who failed to convince me to buy were listed on page 1? How many first time buyers will care to go beyond the first page?
