As Fiverr has been pretty consistent for me the last few months I’ve been able to work full time every day, 7 days a week. I’ve been happy to do this to build up my ratings and reviews, but it’s left me no time for anything else. As a music producer I need to return to work on my own projects so I’ve decided to work on Fiverr gigs 5 days a week and keep 2 days for my own music.
The last few weeks I’ve set Fiverr to Out of Office every weekend, then back to work on a Monday. Every time I set it back online I get no orders or enquiries for at least a few days. I feel like somehow Fiverr is penalising me for switching to Out of Office to put me off doing this, as usually I have constant work and enquiries coming in.
I’m really not sure what to do going forward, as I need 2 days off a week without distraction, but if Fiverr penalises me due to using Out of Office, I will end up not being able to take enough work during the week.
Has anyone else had a negative experience with Out of Office and is there a way to take time out without experiencing these problems?
