I have a gig that is very close to my heart and is something I enjoy doing i.e. my passion. I have always loved reading books and have had a keen eye for detail. My first instinct after reading a text is to mentally start picking it apart and identifying errors.
Unofficially, I used to help my batchmates with their essays and term reports in high school. While at university, I went on to work for the writing centre. Which is why it was a no brainer to create a ‘proofreading and editing’ gig once I joined Fiverr.
However, I haven’t been getting any orders despite ranking on the 4th page. Is it because most buyers prefer Native English speakers only? Or is there something wrong with my gig? I have written the description in bullet points and phrases instead of proper sentences since that helps readability. What would other sellers and buyers suggest I do to get more orders?
