I’m so frustrated with myself right now. I’ve been on Fiverr for a few weeks and I finally managed to get in a few orders. I was so excited because I had one order already placed and another on the way. My phone went off at 4am the other day and it happened to wake me up (it usually doesn’t) and it was a new order notification. I wanted to provide the best service to hopefully get a good review, so I got out of bed to complete a $5 order.
I guess from being a bit disoriented from waking up suddenly, I didn’t realize that I should have responded to the buyer’s message in my inbox instead of on the order page (even though there’s a little message telling you not to reply in the inbox), so my response rate dropped to 88%. Otherwise, my profile would be stellar (despite only having a few orders).
This has really been a downer for me and I haven’t been that interested in even opening Fiverr today, but I did because I want to make this platform work for me.
