Don’t worry about it yet. It will take a few weeks to get new regulars, but you’ll get there.
I doubled my prices about 2 months ago as I was in the same situation and at first there was a gap too. Orders slowed down, but it wasn’t for long.
It also didn’t help that I stopped working with one of my most frequent regulars, because I didn’t like to work with him.
But eventually my total revenue for the first month only dropped about 15% (and it could be due to losing that one buyer alone), while my working hours reduced dramatically, I didn’t do the precise math, but it felt like 50-60%.
It wasn’t proportional to the drop in revenue, because quality of the orders also increased and there were less buyers trying to squeeze everything they can out of 5$.
At the time clicks per impression went down and I was a little worried about that. What I did was adjusting the prices on my basic package. While they essentially remained the same, I reduced the amount of work instead of setting a higher price, so my basic gig was back at $5 and stats went back to what I was used to.
Now the number of orders and new regulars keeps increasing, aswell as my average weekly earnings. Impressions and all that started increasing too, not sure why though.
Don’t let the initial slow down get to you. It’s too soon to tell. You can always get back to your old prices, if nothing changes.
