Why is my Proofreading gig not getting any buyers but my writing gig is becoming very popular? Tips?


#1

I am offering one of the best Proofreading gigs on Fiverr with a very high word count (2500 words) for $5. But it’s not attracting any buyers. I can see several other Proofreaders getting loads of orders everyday.

This is strange because my other Writing gig is becoming very popular with around 100 orders completed in less than 2 months and I became a Level 2 seller. I am a qualified Proofreader and would really like to create a brand in this area on Fiverr.

Do you have any tips on how I can change that?

Perhaps try promoting or advertising your gig in areas where your desired buyers hang out. I promote through fb, pinterest, writing clubs, privately owned bookstores and cafes, and at my local schools here (hs and colleges) best of luck!

I would focus on not getting any negative reviews!
