Fiverr does not generate clients for you. You have to work for them.
It’s not just as simple as creating an account and watching the money pile up. I’ve seen many posts where new creatives ask and say the same things:
- “Where are the orders?”
- “How come I’m not selling?”
- “I got a few sales, but now nothing”
- “Is there a secret?”
- “How to move up the rankings?”
- “Who Killed 2pac?”
My points are the following:
If you’re not offering a service that’s unique and stands out from the 1000’s in your field, success will be difficult.
If you’re not willing to market yourself daily to generate clientele, success will be difficult.
If you’re not skilled at what you’re offering and promote dishonesty, success will be difficult.
If you lack a creative, professional presentation of your services, success will be difficult.
Fiverr is many things, such as a resume builder, a side hobby, and for some, a career. But like gambling, it’s all a crap shoot. It’s a leap of faith. You cannot expect ANYTHING to happen for you. Level 1’s learn about it, Level 2’s understand it, and TOS’s practice it. It’s a tough, tough thing to do and I mean that in the most meaningful way I can put into text. THIS IS NOT EASY!
Be willing to work to reap the rewards. I kid you not. Everything explained above is just a small piece of the puzzle. This is not to discourage anyone new, but to advocate understanding. Stay motivated, work very hard, and good luck to you all.
