Fiverr Community Forum

I've just hit 500 Reviews

… and it got me thinking about the buyers who’ve come and gone over the years.

Compared to some of the horror stories we read on the forum, I would say that 99 percent of my buyers have been good or else truly excellent to work with.

I will never forget the nightmare buyer who gave me a one star rating after I completed one of the most difficult jobs I’ve faced on Fiverr (customer support had my back on this one). And I remember feeling annoyed when a new buyer rated me 4.7 on their first order, but they went on to become one of my most loyal buyers over three years. Sadly they went out of business during the pandemic last year.

Apart from those two less than perfect reviews, I can’t recall receiving anything less than 5 star reviews over the past 8 or so years. It just goes to show that if you’re good at what you do, you care about what you do and you can offer decent communication with buyers - then you can succeed.

I’m not saying that to brag, but to demonstrate to new sellers that you don’t need to worry about clicks and impressions, or posting gigs to social media - just be good at the basics.

Congratz on your big milestone! You’ve had better luck in regards to reviews over 8 years than I have had in one! :smile:

And absolutely true, if one’s fundamentals are flawed, then that will result in far more problems than worrying over impressions, clicks, and gig visibility.

Thank you - although I couldn’t cope with that many orders in a year!

My service (proofreading) is a very factual one - grammar is either right or wrong, so it’s tough for people to argue lol. However, I can imagine that with more creative based services there is a scope for disagreements and more harsh reviews!

Quite true! Similarly, any plans on ever returning to focusing more on VO work, or are you more than satisfied with your current service offerings?

Congrats on the achievement!!! 500 reviews is really impressive, and that takes a lot of effort and time. But keep it up, road to 1,000 reviews :star_struck:

Ha ha, and thank you! I have backed away from posting in the forum a little bit in recent months - but there are still some interesting posts to read and respond to. And yours are excellent too!

Thanks for asking. I did voiceovers in my early days on Fiverr, but I eventually got annoyed with the poor quality of some scripts (words that literally made no sense) and people not being able to clearly express what they wanted (so I’d record and then they’d ask for it to be a bit slower / faster, more upbeat / less upbeat, etc). I quickly worked out that I wasn’t the best voiceover out there (although I had some decent reviews), and that it was for me a time-consuming way to earn on Fiverr. There seemed to be a lot of messaging involved and retakes that added a lot of time to far too many orders. As I say, it was in my early days on Fiverr and I could probably handle things a lot more efficiently now. But we live and learn!

Thankfully, Fiverr is just part of my work mix. I have other more creative and fun outlets too - so, I’m actually quite happy just offering a very factual service on Fiverr. Proofreading is quite low maintenance. As I often write, grammar is either right or wrong - it’s difficult to dispute!
