Why do i have to wait so long for my first sale on fiverr

I am a new seller on Fiverr for over 30 days and is yet to make my first sale.
I have reviewed my gigs.
Change my gig images.
Research my tags.
And still nothing. Can someone say what am doing wrong, here is a link to one of my gigs check it out and let me know?

I am a new Seller on Fiver too. I had reviewed my gigs. I renew my gigs, but I didnt have new seller. So tired, please pm me to increase my Gigs, thank you

Hey there,

Firstly, please update your keywords, after searching, none of your keyword is used by any of the other same service provider. I would suggest you to check what keywords sellers use, I checked that they are using better and almost same keywords, you should do the same.

Secondly, due to high competition, it’s not easy to get orders that soon, sometimes it takes sometimes, have some patience and keep sending offers in buyer requests and sharing your gig on social media.

Best of luck!


Hey I am new to fiverr too. It has been around 50 days. I made my first sale in 2 weeks after which I have made 14 more. They were all through buyer requests. Few tips and tricks:
-make sure the buyer requests you are offering match your gig title with which you make the offer and you have a relative gig picture
-You have to be sure you know how to do the job, otherwise you won’t be confident and persuasive enough to attract the buyer.
-In the request you should make a unique personal offer, never a template. Mention what you will DO. Mention their business name and repeat what they asked you to do while being confident in yourself. They will know that you know everything about the job.
-make 10 offers each day religiously
-note the pattern when requests show the best in your country. And check requests at that time

  • Refine your offers to those you know best. Because you have limited offers to send
  • Make sure you have an attractive gig picture
  • Offer free sample sketch via inbox (eg logo)

You should be good to go!
Good Luck! :slight_smile:


I suggest to you make another GIG with highest uses TAGS in FIVERR,
Don’t change anything in your GIG once you published it,
Because changing GIG title, images or tags can get a bad effect in your GIGS,
Sometimes it gives you lower gig impression than previous,
If you only change the price table,
Then it Doesn’t have any effect.
