I completed level 1 requirements about a month ago, and just became a level 1 seller. I’d like to share my experience with the new sellers.
I joined fiverr in 2019 summer. I waited for a month, but couldn’t get any orders. So I gave up and froze my account. Then this summer, I decided to try again. This time, I started sending buyer requests, and got my first order. My first buyer was a 1.7m subscribed youtuber, which suprised and made me happy at the same time. I kept sending buyer requests, and I have 55 completed orders so far.
Tips for New Sellers:
- Send buyer requests as much as possible
The biggest difference from last year for me was buyer requests. I got more than half of my buyers from buyer requests, and it is definitely the most efficient way to get orders.
- Keep your prices low for the start
Since there are thousands of sellers on fiverr, people probably wouldn’t want to pay a non-rated seller a big amount. If you keep your prices low, buyers might send you tips. (but you shouldn’t expect it anyways) There was even a time where I got a 25$ tip for a 5$ order.
- Stay online
Fiverr has a feature that you can choose to see only the online sellers. This means being online puts you in a circle which has lower amount of sellers, and it undoubtly increases your chances of getting order.
- Make sure buyer is satisfied with your work
I always ask my buyers if there’s anything they’d like to change in my work. Since they pay for it, I try to do my best to make sure the work is worth their money. There might be times where buyers want to abuse your goodwill, so you should always be careful and know where to stop.
- Be patient
There is still a chance that you might never get orders. Be patient as much as possible, and keep doing your best.
That’s what I think helps the most. I hope this was helpful for you. You can ask me any questions in the comments. Good luck and have a good day everyone
