… 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.
