Why is it so difficult getting your first orders?


#1

I’m a new freelancer. Haven’t received any order despite putting in so much effort.
This discourages me. Why is it so difficult getting your first orders?


#2

Because there are a thousand others offering the same services. :slight_smile:
(Or should I say Millions)
Don’t worry, be patient and work hard, the good day will come soon. :smiley::sunny:

I ran into a similar issue when I first started out a couple years back. The categories my gigs were in had been flooded with many others, and exposure was a difficult beast.

I tried to make my design work gigs appealing enough and at a reasonable price to be more attractive, but it still took time to get those first orders.

Once I had a few completed gigs, more came in. My rating went up, reviews -positive, and I have buyers referred by others.

The important this is to:
Be patient
Promote your gigs to social media and forms
Deliver quality results
Never sell yourself short
