Number of sales dropping


#1

Hi guys,
I’ve been on Fiverr for more than a year now, and I’ve been doing great, specially on the first months of 2017. I was really swamped with orders, and had to work about 12 hours a day, even on weekends. I started having some health issues because of that, so I decided I’d start limiting my orders and going on vacation mode during the weekends.
That worked for a while, I was still getting enough orders to make ends meet. But these last weeks my sales really dropped; I’m mostly getting orders from current clients, almost no new clients, and of course, my earnings are starting to drop.
I checked my gig stats, and I’m still getting more impressions, but the number of clicks have gone down drastically. I already did a “competition analysis”, and I think I’m still very competitive in terms of price and gig description, so I don’t know what could be the reason for that. Could it be because I was going on vacation mode so often? Have any of you guys experienced the same thing?
Thank you!

I don’t know in your category how things go.
I can tell from mine and my experience though…
Always after coming back from Vacation Mode, it costs me 2-3 weeks to get my normal rhythm again. That happened 2 times, and I’ve decided not to use VM again.
Instead, I just modify the delivery time of my Gig, delivering few days later for the newcomers. So I don’t have to deal with clients who click, see I’m on vacation often, and just move on.

Strange, I’ve just checked your Gig_translation. You are on top in your category. People see you OK

I think vacation mode might be the problem then… I’ll try doing what you said, let’s see if it works! Thanks a lot!

I think Gig’s pause is much better than vacation. It’s my opinion only. May be I’m not right …

When I was on vacation one year ago, I used that option and the same thing happened to me. After that, I bought a fast laptop and started working from everywhere I go. My guess is that in two or three weeks max, you will get the same amount of orders again.

December 2015 was my best month of Fiverr, I used the vacation mode for two weeks in January 2016, and then it took me to mid-February 2016 to make my business flow as it was doing before.

Same thing happened to me what happened to @alinevieira , I dont think that thing became same again…Its been more than 3 month since my last vacation and still I am not getting enough order…may be issue is not a vacation mode but some thing strange…

There is one more opportunity that might can increase your earnings just by using your links and contact if you are interested so i can make this opportunity available to you any time and you may do this on your vacations also as its not to difficult work for you.
i may also know the reason why your sales going down.

Many sellers on here are reporting the same problem. I haven’t gone into vacation mode for 1.5 years, so it can’t be that. Perhaps it’s the world-wide economy?

would you like to talk with me in inbox or on e-mail so that i may provide some information and opportunity to work like boss and any time any where?

my most popular and selling gig was automatically paused and images were lost! fiverr notified me to change gig…- they said surajrenuka you need to modify your gig!
but before that gig was going well and I was pretty happy with result…when I modified they took it back!
