Fiverr Community Forum

I know it's too early to ask this but What to do?

Started fiverr about a week ago and still waiting for my first gig.
I’m using buyers request but still no luck (no one wants to commission someone with no rating right? It’s too much of a risk). I read on this forum that a good way to Kickstart my selling is through friends and family but none of mine wanted to do it. I did market it on my social media but I got no big followers.

Anyone can help me?


That’s an outdated advice. Even if your friends or family did buy from you, if they left a review, it would be considered review manipulation, and could get you an account warning.


Some sellers take months to get their first order.

Read this: Before you ask about HOW TO GET ORDERS or No Orders: READ THIS (MORE ORDERS, Tips, Buyers, First Order, Impressions, Sales)

And this: for hundreds of tips on how to get orders.

You will find all the tips you need in the above.

Read, learn, take action, enjoy! :slightly_smiling_face:

I see, thanks man, I appreciate it

Awesome, thanks for the link man!

Tip: Suggest you do not address others as dear, man, brother, sister, etc. as lots of people don’t like it and it will put many buyers off.

Also, don’t assume that everyone who uses a profile logo is male! :wink:

Will keep that in mind, thanks :+1:t2:
