Are you a new seller? This is how you get more orders:

Are you going to share what has worked for you as Jon has? 😉

In my post, I’d already shared in principle what worked for me. Just like I stated, those ‘tips on how get offers’ are there and anyone can access them by simply doing a search. Unless one has new ideas to offer, there’s no use going into the archives to bring up what anyone can directly access. Doing that is spamming and you’d understand this when a dozen others want to ‘help’ newbies by digging up past materials and dumping them here with nothing new. Thanks.

I guess I missed them, even after reading your post more than once.

:thinking:

And that is the crux of the issue on this Forum. Most of the newbies that come here do not take the time to search and ask for tips and tricks repeatedly. Instead, they ask for help over and over and over.

Unless one has new ideas to offer, there’s no use going into the archives to bring up what anyone can directly access.

I guess you are entitled to your opinion.

Doing that is spamming

It is not spamming, it is providing a resource for those who are new or do not understand how to look for information for themselves.

you’d understand this when a dozen others want to ‘help’ newbies by digging up past materials and dumping them here with nothing new.

So, what do you suggest? Should we merely ignore the newbies?

I for one am happy that @jonbaas used his years of experience to put together something to which the inexperienced sellers to refer. Besides, according to the number of likes and comments, this thread has received many others are too.

Too bad, most of the new sellers who keep opening new threads every 10 minutes on 'Why I don MEK sales" is ignorant enough to do the basic research.

If you want more orders, here’s what you need to do: You need to research, understand, and reach out to your target customers. You need to Study, Understand, and Connect.

The only people who will hire you, are the people who need your services. So, if you want them to hire you, you need to understand who they are, what they like, and and what they need. Then, you need to determine how your valuable skills can solve their needs. I’ll say that again – THEIR NEEDS, not your needs – not what you want. THEIR needs. And, once you’ve done those things, then you need to find creative ways to connect to those target customers, and show them why you are the best person, with the right skills, to help them complete their projects.

You are not here for you. You are not here to get rich. You are here to HELP OTHER PEOPLE. The more successful you become at helping others, the more those people will trust you, respect you, and want to work with you again and again.

Fiverr is not a get-rich-quick website. It is a help-buyers-get-done marketplace.

You are either here to work… or here to watch.

You also need to realize that you are competing against thousands of other sellers, all of whom are offering the same exact services you offer. If you aren’t getting the kind of sales you want, then maybe those other sellers are doing a better job reaching the same customers you want. You are not guaranteed orders just because you want them, and you are not guaranteed orders just because you have gigs here on Fiverr.

If you want to improve your odds of being a marketable seller – study your competition. Figure out what works for them, and find ways to make those things work for you too.

Most importantly, DO NOT blindly imitate other sellers. DO NOT copy-paste what they write. DO NOT steal their gig images. Be you. Be unique. Buyers do not hire copycats. They hire original sellers who know how to stand out because of who they are – unique sellers who exude confidence, and can prove their abilities.

Your target customers want to hire the best person for their job. Is that best person you, or is that best person your competition?

Study. Understand. Connect. This is how you earn orders. This is how you find success.

Thank you for your valuable information.Very useful to me…

Yeah, I agree it’s about helping others. I am new here and I need reviews but when I met a student yesterday who was looking for some code that was already present on google, I shared stuff with him and helped him understand the algorithim and told him to write his own code. He did that and he was successful. I am glad to help!

BRO…please help me to promote my gig

No, it is not my job to promote your gig. You are an independent freelancer. Part of your gig – part of your success strategy – should be to research your target market, understand that target market, and determine what kind of marketing techniques that market might relate to.

It is your job to promote your gigs.
