Is getting the first order just become harder and harder?

Hi, this is my first post here. I’ve been a Fiverr buyer for a while but has started selling just this month.

I was wondering how long did it take to get your first order? Incidentally, I just noticed this question has been asked several times in the forum.

However, somehow I think it’s getting harder because the competition is only getting fierce. For a competitive category or keywords, one can hardly find any new sellers without reviews listed on the first few pages. So I feel new sellers today (April 2018) have to do more then earlier sellers to get noticed.

Sometimes it looks like a chicken and egg situation. You need reviews to rank higher but, you can’t rank higher without reviews.

You can promote your gig(s) outside fiverr, share you gig(s) on facebook, twitter etc.
I will also suggest you send offers to buyer requests daily, you have 10 offers to use per day, that might increase your chance of getting orders.
I wish you best of luck as you begin your journey as a seller :wink:
