No sales at all, Maybe (COVID-19) is the reason? :(

I’m experiencing the same thing. Impressions and views have really decreased.

2weeks now, no order. Except from one of my returning buyers.

I hope everything goes back to normal soon.

Yes, Only returning buyers can help us right now 🙁

Hey! Same from me.

I think COVID-19 has something to do, but not all of it. I’ve been having the same issues for the last 3 months. My sales went from $1K per month to $250 or less. I’ve always been in page one of my category now I’m in page 9 all of a sudden. I don’t improve despite I share in social media, lower my gig price, I only get 5 stars reviews lately,

HOnestly, I don’t know what else to do

Wow, $1k per month was a pretty good number. I’m sure you’re a pro & you know what you’re doing. $250 is still good but you know what I’ve earned $36 this month… Yes, Just $36 bucks 😔 I again contacted Fiverr support team & they replied with this particular message “As much as I understand your concerns, I am not able to manually place your Gig on the 1st page of the associated category as multiple factors are affecting the search results and Fiverr cannot offer any guarantee that you Gig will appear on a certain page.”

So just keep calm & wash your hands frequently ☺️

I already decrease my price of the gig now I provide Video streaming website like youtube only on $5 it actually works $300 but still I can not get any order now I am very discouraged and tried 😔

Don’t worry, Just be patient. I’m sure orders will come really soon 🙂

I read all of this and it makes me sad… 😦

I just recently started to get noticed and got my first order, but it sounds to me that it will be a while before I start getting more orders. 😞 I have noticed lower stats (even though my stats weren’t too impressive to begin with, but still).

I’m sure, You will get more orders soon. Just be patient 🙂

For sure! A very clear effect. I used to have 30-60 orders in queue all the time until last year. Then it dropped to 5-10 ish when impressions dropped by 95% when my gigs moved to last pages suddenly.

Now since the pandemic (Might be related), if I’m lucky, I get one order per day. 😱

Stay safe! And let’s hope the worst of the epidemic passes soon. At least there’s good news from China, where they have experienced a significant drop in new cases.

Yes, We will win this fight against this virus. Just be strong because things will get better soon 🙃

Same here, views and impressions being much lower than before, but I guess it’s all temporary. Everyone in the world are in this waiting phase and lots of things are being on hold. I guess it all depends on what you do (if you get orders for businesses or personal use), but it feels like it’s not a great time for either.
I guess that’s the perfect time to review all sources of incomes and work on personal projects that can either improve skill, add another passive income channel or just make you happy.
Stay safe!

Yeah it’s all temporary. You’re right, I can work on some personal projects right now which is really important for me & my future 🙂

Same here. I have been experiencing almost a 70-80% drop in sales order since last week as a result of the covid19. Despite this, it has allowed me to free up time to focus on building/adding more value. It is a great lesson indeed in my opinion, as it has allowed us to make back up plans should anything similar comes up again.

💪 We got this!

You’re right, We need back up plans. Fiverr is my only source of income right now & orders are not coming from last 20 days. I don’t know what is wrong with my gigs or profile. I’m not a new seller & I’ve joined Fiverr in September 2014 so I’m a seller with more than 6 years of experience.

I’m a hardworking person & I’m making some minor changes on my gigs every single week. But still, No one is responding right now. I don’t think Fiverr is showing up my gigs anywhere at all. I’ve contacted them twice & every time they reply with this exact same message "Fiverr does not guarantee sales. We provide a marketplace for you to advertise your Gigs, and it is up to you to make them appealing, and promote them outside of Fiverr "

I’m shocked, They’re losing revenues right now. I’m sure Fiverr knows it very well that they’re in loss. But still they act like nothing is happening 😦

But don’t worry, I still love this marketplace & I still love Fiverr & their amazing team 🙂

Hey, I think you are not the only one suffering through a slump in sales, many of us are falling in no. Of view, click impressions drastically.

I just got 2 orders in the month of March where I was getting 6-7 orders averagely per month.

Every business is taking a hit by this covid-19 pandemic and freelancing is also suffering.

I want to ask everyone here a question:-

Should we do extensive promotion outside Fiverr to increase our impressions or we should just wait for all of this to get over ?

Anyways, everyone stay safe and stay home. 🙌

We can’t do anything right now, I don’t think any kind of promotion will work at all 😦

I’ve told them to start a Relief fund Campaign for Non US Based Freelancers 🙏

Hi now is a very hard times for all of us and we should think in a way to help each others in this period many offices and businesses are stop working and there is very few people in a streets. And because of pandemic there isn’t much to do now it’s time to hold and rethink our actions, if you don’t have orders you can always sharpen your skills, I don’t like your sarcastic notice about fiverr’s answer, as fiverr do a lot to make this platform best possible place for all of us by promoting and attracting as many customers as it’s possible. So what we do with our work to support fiverr’s growth? I can’t understand people who think that fiverr owe them anything. Can I ask you why you don’t have buyers? Why you don’t make them return? You need to provide the best possible work to make them forget about other places, you must give them quality that they will not get in other places I’m not speaking about price believe me if you have money you will buy a Porsche rather than Fiat if you know what I mean so every customer ready to pay for a good product as they understand that with that they will look better and can success, every time lowering prices and giving even low quality product isn’t the way we should try to keep on fiverr. I recommend to read more and study better to become a better skilled in what you do every time you have a time this is the only way to attract more customers. In these days the whole world is fighting with unseen virus which is not a joke and because of massive isolation it’s very natural that everything will loose the grip and become more slow so imagine if every seller who have a drop on sales will message to fiverr and ask why they aren’t get as many orders as they want? I have printed flyers and hire 2 girls to share them with people I buy a places to make advertisements I go to different forums and workshops I meet people and tell about my business on fiverr I try to advertise as much as I can my gigs. I’m not a specialist in this maybe I do many wrong things but I try at least I don’t seat and ask fiverr to give me a buyers I have a buyers outside of fiverr I invite them I recommend them to use fiverr I’m an artist designer I never do marketing I don’t understand much and it costs me a lot of energy and I feel not comfortable doing that many things but I know that if each of us will try to do something which will help fiverr that will be only good for all of us. Sorry if I write anything wrong or anyhow you can think I offend in any case please don’t take this personal I just speak in general it’s about my feelings and thoughts which I follow, you can give me your opinion and I can learn from it much, thank you and stay safe we all should try to pass through this with understanding and compassion to each other stay safe

First of all, Please accept my deepest condolence. Recently, Armenia reports first death related to coronavirus which is pretty sad 😦

You’re right, If I’m not getting any orders then there is something wrong with me. Maybe my gigs, images, title, keywords & my skills are not not working for me. I will change them & improve my gigs & skills soon. But please note: I’m not bashing Fiverr here & I’m not complaining about not getting orders 🙂

I started this discussion to verify that if (COVID-19) is the reason for not getting any sales right now. And yes I was right. (This Coronavirus pandemic changed the world including Fiverr) Usually I receive 5-6 messages per day or sometimes 2-3 orders a day. But from last 26 days, No one is contacting me & no one is ordering my gigs which was pretty strange for me that’s why I started this.

Repeat customers are the reason of my survival on Fiverr. I’m a seller here for more than 6 years now so yeah I know what I’m doing here. I often advertise & promote my gigs on different platforms & yes on on my social media accounts as well. I even have a “Marketing budget” for my gigs. Yes, I usually invest my 20% earning on advertising which is essential for my online business. When I’ve started in 2014 the competition for me was not that strong. Yes “My Main Job was to speed up wordpress sites much faster” & that time no one was competing with me.

You can go to Fiverr & just search this: wordpress speed optimization (You will find 100+ gigs about speed optimization) Yeah exactly like the logo ones. Everyone is a expert in this field now 🙂 I’m talking about wordpress speed optimization here.

2014 (When I was just 18-19 years old kid) 2020 (When I’m 24 right now & much for experienced & professional)

So yeah I improved a lot & yes even my personal life is changed now 😉

I stopped working here for more than 2 years because of some personal reasons but when I started again in 2019 everything about this marketplace was changed. Fiverr PRO area, You can take skills & other tests. So I was happy that they’re improving this marketplace but then I activated the paused gigs & realized that no one is messaging me. I searched my gigs & found out that every other seller is offering my services, which was just shocking for me. I invested my time & money on my profile & then orders start coming again. I even messaged my previous buyers so they can know that I’m back here 🙂

Everything was normal that time then in January 2020 my impressions, views & clicks were decreasing every single day. (Strange) right!!

I contacted Fiverr support & they told me that everything is fine with your account but I still told them to check it again & they replied: Everything is normal but I can feel that everything was not normal that time. February was a pretty good month for me but then this March month destroyed everything 😦

I can’t even express my feelings with you, I’m so sad & worried right now. & please don’t say sorry to me & yeah I don’t take anything personally so don’t worry 😀

Stay home, stay safe

Covid-19 has affected not only freelancers but webmasters as well. I have two websites and traffic is almost reduced to 40%, CPC is also low. People around the world are worried and searching just about Coronavirus and it is the reason behind less sales. I personally think the situation will improve after around 30 days i.e after 20 to 25 April. Let’s be positive and be at home to defeat this pandemic.

New seller, started 3 and half months ago. Its been good for me from the start and now my march earnings have dropped. I was getting 2 to 3 orders daily and how the things were i going, i was gonna hit 1000$ for march or atleat 900$. but last 2 weeks were harsh.

One order in queue and stuck on $556 for march. but i think that is still a great number as i am from Pakistan and the conversion rate is massive.

Lets pray that this pandemic end soon.

Well, businesses are operating less and less during this time so it makes sense that commerce in general will die down.

You’re right 😦

The world is at war with the invisible army of the new coronavirus but don’t worry we are fighting right now & we will win this war.

Hopefully everything will be normal soon 🙂
