Are you still on level 1 after a year? Don’t be discouraged.
It’s not uncommon to see people make it to level 2 in less than 2months and this can affect you if you are like me who has been on Fiverr for almost a year and still on level 1.
Here are some things you should take note of before you compare yourself with such people :
- Your location: whether you believe it or not, it matters. Most buyers on Fiverr are from US, Australia, Canada and Europe and one would expect that they will feel safer doing business with people from their location. So don’t be discouraged if you aren’t making as much sales as folks from these places, it isn’t Fiverr’s fault rather it’s human nature and buyers are humans afterall
Your niche : This matters a lot too. If you are not in any of these top five niches; Logo design, Article editing, Article writing (sales copy), Voice acting, Video creation (editing/infographic videos/funny videos) you might not become a level 2 seller in less than a year.
Buying reviews: This is a fact, some sellers buy reviews. Please read Fiverr ToS to check if it is legal. I have never done this and will not do it but I think some people do it to make level 2 faster so please don’t be discouraged by your seemingly slow progression on here
Luck: yes, it’s time to start thinking differently and taking actions to achieve our goal, this is what it means to be lucky.
Complaining : when we complain we tend to worsen our situation rather we should learn from others who have succeeded regardless of the above listed shortcomings
Being helpful: Most top rated and level 2 sellers on here tend to give back to others what they have learned. They post helpful information on this forum and also anwser questions to help others out so be willing to learn from them
