So I’ve been on Fiverr for a while, and I’ve done pretty well on here. Last fall, I was getting tons of orders. Unfortunately, I started getting a huge volume of spam messages, as well as orders from people who hadn’t read my gig or wanted a service that I do not offer. I was dealing alright with this, though it was lowering my message response rate, until late November.
I’m a graduate student working on Fiverr to make ends meet, but I had several people at once who were difficult, so I had to cancel several orders during my final exams because I didn’t have time to deal with it any more. After that, I basically put my gig on hold until after the holidays.
Now that I’m back, I haven’t had any messages or orders, and my gig isn’t showing up in the search engine. That said, I did edit my gig a few days ago to lower my prices for a while, so hopefully it will come back. However, my username also doesn’t show up when I search for it in the usernames search engine, and I’m worried that maybe my problems have permanently tanked my business.
Has anyone had a similar experience?
