You have 6 orders in your queue. That is more than many sellers have.
The amount of messages varies greatly depending on where you are in Fiverr’s search algorithm. Some weeks you are on top, and others, you are not. You may be entering a time when you are not on top.
Do not bother CS with this issue. They are busy enough because of the pandemic and the number of gigs doubling or even tripling in some niches. It takes them up to 10 days to reply anyhow, and they really cannot help you much with this. Trust me, I know of what I speak. I have been here going on 4 years, whereas the other guy that responded is a newbie. and he is fun to tease!
Thank you so much, you have reassured me do you find that business picks up again after a couple of weeks? I am hoping it is just because it’s a Sunday, as looking back to last Sunday, I only received 2 messages
Sorry to bombard you - I have checked the search and my gig is still coming up at the top of hundreds and hundreds of results, so I’m hoping that I will see an increase in messages tomorrow. Thank you for your help
Where you see your gig is not where I would see it. Some of my Forum friends and I tested it one time and found out it varied widely where we each saw each other’s gigs. Try checking incognito mode and see what you find.
PS, I used to offer what you offer for your best selling gig. I eventually charged 50 for 400 words. But when my proofreading ended up making me more per hour I paused that gig. If you are getting 6-10 messages a day it is because of what a great deal you are giving. I would slowly raise my prices if I were you. You could start by lowering the number of words per package slightly. Then the buyers may not notice the raise in price and you work less for more .
Ok, so I checked it on my friend’s phone without being logged in and she has no previous history of viewing Fiverr and I was still on the first page of results for email copy.
Wow, that’s amazing to know. Thank you so much for your advice, I really appreciate it. I have considered raising my prices when I hit level 1 which should be on December 15th.
Did you find a lot of people want the higher word emails? Many of my customers that want a sales email are asking for 100-200 words. I thought maybe I could keep my basic package the same and for the standard and premium packages, offer multiple emails. Do you think this is wise?
I have already lowered my number of words as it used to be 250
Sundays are slow but today seems to be weird - the BR section from the desktop shows high numbers of requests (20 now), none of which are present: the page is empty despite the number showing.
BRs from the phone app were bugged too this morning, a number was displayed but nothing appeared. Usually, the grey icon telling you there’s no BRs appears instead.
And more so, while bugs like these are common, my remaining offer count has been stuck to 10 since yesterday afternoon, despite sending offers which fully registered. This occurence in particular has never happened to me before.
