From the online reviews, The 10X Rule book must be a good read. On goals, they should actually do that, just enough pressure to keep you going and not to burn you out.

How I was able to, huh.
If you look at the goals to get to level one, there are those that are defined by the time you are on the platform as a seller, On 1st January when I decided to give this a real shot, I had almost achieved almost all the time-based goals.
I’ve been on Fiverr for 3years now, mostly on the buying end, last year in January I created a gig to just get a feel of how this worked, well, I never got even one view for 12 months…lol.
So when got serious only 2 goals were/are left. Earnings and Orders. As at today, I am $25 away from the $400 target. And 4 orders. If you see something here, I have a few orders, but they quite gave me mileage to the $400 target.
The other part, buyers are real people, and people are people. They literally don’t trust new sellers. When I was a buyer, if the budget wasn’t an issue, I never bought from anyone below a certain level or had a certain number of reviews. New buyers prefer to buy from validated sellers, repeat buyers, are most times loyal, they tend to drink from the same well…creatures of habit you know.
So, what does a new seller do, you fight for crumbs from the buyer request section. Offer ridiculously low rates, your concern at the moment shouldn’t be money, which is a good thing about your 10x1 target. It is to get validated by the kind of reviews you get.
Fall in love with that page, dream about it…when you see something you can do, read it and only apply when you are sure you can do it, that will help you to craft a thoughtful response to the request. Something most guys don’t do. Yesterday I posted a buy request, trust me out of the 15 guys who responded only 2 read my request, I think. You know whom I went with.
The other buyers came from my social media and my blog efforts I believe. And that’s going to be my focus to get to level two.
