Roughly how long should it take to get your first sale?

Hey, I’ve had my main gig up for around 4 days with no sales, I completely understand that it will take longer to get some but I wondered how long the average time is? Also any tips to get sellers would be very appreciated. Thank you,

Welcome Puzbie. Sales aren’t automatic here. Took me months to get first Order. But that’s NOT standard as your first Order could be in another hour. Just read through tons of tips archived here, apply them and you’d be good. Buyers are most times wary of newbies, particularly those yet to make sales. Cheer on, this phase is transient.

welcome - i have only been on for 2 months and completed 15 orders within the first 5 weeks (newbie bump), however the last 3 weeks have been pretty dry - 4 or so. that said, it seems to fluctuate and focusing on sales at the beginning could prove exhausting. instead focusing on small good business practices (reading tips, working BRs, learning from the forum, etc) each day and completing them is a goal more within your control. small wins lead to bigger wins later.

I was about to ask the same question. Really how long? Well… lets see…

It all depends upon you. You can get order within 1 day or might not get even within 1 month.

Chance of getting first order is high if you apply through buyer request with minimum cost and delivering high quality work
