My name is Andrew and I have been a Voice Over Seller here on Fiverr for just over a year and a half. When I first heard of Fiverr, my initial reaction was (i’m sure similar to a lot of you) there is no way I can make a profit for only $5! Well, once I learned the system and the power up up-selling I knew that Fiverr could be a great revenue addition.
I’ll keep this as brief and to the point as I can. During my first year on Fiverr, I was receiving 10-15 orders a day and life was gooooooood. This trend kept going for about 8 months, when, there was a medical emergency that pop-up and I had to drop everything. Sadly, I was unable to pause my gig/ go on vacation mode and because of that, I had a big string of 45ish orders that got canceled due to my inactivity (all one-stars).
My perfect 5-star rated gig dropped down to 4.3 and that’s when the orders dried up. It’s taken me many months to bring my gig up to a 4.8 rating. I have changed my prices, given away free extras to first time buyers, and went above and beyond to do everything I could to try and get back to a 5.0 rating.
So now here I sit, getting maybe 1-2 orders every two weeks and I am at a loss. I have no idea how to improve my gig to try and get back to where I was when I first started. I would love some feedback on my gig as I don’t know where I am going wrong. https://www.fiverr.com/andrew_lentz/record-an-american-male-voice-over-narration
Side note When I first started here on Fiverr, my recording quality was passable but from the funds gained from my gig, I now have a top of the line studio and recording equipment AND still, can’t seem to gain any traction.
** EDIT** - The question might be, should I still use this gig or phase this one out in place of a new one where I have a better chance at being rated at 5.0
