I’ve been on this site for going on 10 years now, I’ve been TRS for about 8 of those years and I eventually got myself to a point where I made Fiverr my full-time gig over the last 4-5 years. I’m just writing this to see if anyone else is having problems getting messages from new clients? Pre-covid and this time last year I would get somewhere between 5-10 new inquiries a day, this would translate to about 3-6 orders of various types per day. Since about July last year my sales have dropped about 40-50% now it seems to be getting worse.
These days I’m lucky to get 1 new message from a new client per day. The only thing that seems to keep me going on here is my repeat clients. I’m not able to even try the gig promotion for some reason, all of my gigs are ineligible. My stats are between 98% and 100% most of time and my reviews are 99.9% positive… I don’t understand why I’m ineligible to pay Fiverr money to promote my gigs that also makes them more money
I’m not sure if this is because of COVID, or because of the changes Fiverr has made to their site. I’m curious if anyone else is experiencing this drought of contact from new clients? My only thought is to lower my pricing on my gigs.
Wish everyone well, hope you all are staying safe.
