Hi guys, I am on Fiverr for 7 years now, had good and bad times. To get more orders, people love suggesting answer buyer requests, but make it in a customized, polite and detailed way.
I have tried it, did it as a campaign for a month, then some at random times.
The result is disappointing, I have never ever gotten a single 5 dollar order from answering buyer requests, complete waste of time. Not even a “No thank you, I chose someone else”
My observation with those requests:
- They are Vague. Very Vague. Based on their description it could be a 5 dollar project, could be a 100 dollar project.
- Of course, they rarely want to pay, so most of the requests’s budgets are 5-10 dollars, irrespective of the work involved.
- There is fierce competition for orders, some low level sellers are willing to take any work for 5 bucks.
What’s your experience with requests?
