Will the decreased activity at the moment be a problem once the search testing has been solved?

Hi,
will the decreased activity at the moment be a problem once the search testing has been solved?


#2

The best we can do is wait patiently :frowning:
I know you’re frustrated and so am I but being angry isn’t gonna fix anything.


#3

PEACE :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:
Have a read on this post. A post from FIverr Stuff :wink:

Maybe Natalia Contreras complained about you misrepresenting yourself as her?

Just a thought…

Natalia,

Just as a FYI, 5r staff does not read or monitor the forum. Unfortunately, no one can check on the status of your ticket.

I am a buyer and was frustrated too yesterday when searching for sellers. I couldn’t find the sellers in that I needed and gave up - temporarily.

almost everyone’s business is going down from last month.

I second you @design_ish. Thankfully my business hasn’t been “ruined” as of yet BUT I admit there’s a downfall in regards to orders. I mean… a real one! April has been an absolute blessing in general (I worked from April 12th to April 30th) with the best day (order-wise) being the 21st. However, things began to slow down by the 28th and till today (May 4th) I’ve only been able to complete 6 orders.

One might think I’m nagging, which I’m not, I’m “grateful” for even having those few orders but I couldn’t help but wonder about the reason behind that. I do not promote my services, I didn’t change my marketing scope, I retain a 100% positive record, I even went on to create videos for my gigs!

I have low hopes for May given the performance these first few days but I sincerely hope it’s fixed soon…

You had a most recent delivery one day ago. You have 3 reviews in the past day.
Relax. You have more impressions now than I ever get.

I would be disinclined to do anything to help someone who talked like this.


#11

It’s good you visited.
But these are NOT new orders, as I am a graphic designer these were my revisions which I delivered.
And the reviews where on orders which were placed almost 3 weeks ago.

I have literally no NEW sales, and this is concerning me A lot. How can I be relaxed when I am not getting new orders new acivity on my gig.
This will be a trouble for me even when the search is set.
My gigs would automatically fall down.


#12

Unfortunately you’re not understanding my situation, ofcourse because you might have a different niche than mine.
Graphic designers have on going modifications and revisions. And when they make submission to a revision it shows as a delivery.

Hope that helps you understand better


#13

I could have sworn that someone wrote on the other thread it was back to normal??


#14

I don’t know :frowning:
I haven’t yet felt the difference :weary:


#16

@design_ish Using a stock photo as your personal profile is outright wrong. I suggest you change it to your logo or a picture of yourself.


#17

Well, I guess it’s too soon to judge, May is at its beginning so let’s hope there’s room for improvement :slight_smile: While waiting for the situation to get better, why don’t you tweak your offers and update your listings or test the waters with a few new keywords?! It will keep you occupied and you won’t be constantly thinking of how slow this period is for you.

I hope that you have permission to post this image. It is copyrighted by Paul Ticzon you know…


#19

Thank you. I’m taking this into consideration.
will do it and Yes Right. Let’s hope for the best


#20

Hopefully everything will be solved :slight_smile: Let’s just hope for the best :slight_smile: Surely Fiverr won’t let their sellers down with their new algorithm :slight_smile:


#21

Mostly welcome :slight_smile: a piece of advice though… initiating multiple threads under the exact same subject is kinda confusing :slight_smile: Many sellers are worried by the orders’ decrease but we all try to stay calm!
PS: Any chance that buyers have been put off by the copyrighted image you use as your profile pic? @cyaxrex is right, you might find yourself in trouble…putting a face to a name is of importance when doing business, don’t be hesitant to use a real picture of yours :slight_smile:

All the best
