I have a gig on the first row of the search results, and today I haven’t gotten a single order, even though I’m charging $10 for the basic package.
One of my competitors is charging $30, he has two orders.
Someone else is charging $15, he has four orders.
Can you draw conclusions from this? Not really. Buyers order when they order, and whether you’re on the first row or the last it doesn’t matter, because eventually you will be fond and get orders or not.
You can go from making $50 to $100 in one day, to making $8, $20, or $0.
What matters is if your monthly average for this month is higher than last month. If you go from $22 a day on average to $25, you’re moving forward.
If you go from 12% of your orders being refunded to 8%, that’s also progress. I’m happy that this month I’ve gotten $46 in tips, last month I only got $28.
So hang in there, you’ll survive the doldrums.
