It took me over a year to get my first order.

Then I became a Buyer on Fiverr.

After that I started getting a lot of orders as a Seller.

My third year here was incredible!

I’m near the end of my fifth year here and since COVID, so many new people have turned to Fiverr that the talent pool has been watered down.

I now get maybe 2 or 3 jobs a month here.

However, Fiverr is not my primary source of freelance income, either.

Thanks a lot for the trick on search bar!

Thank you for sharing your experience, it’s really great that you’re getting orders regularly. I also find the interesting part of how “buyer request” work, like chances of buyers replying your offer can be really as low and competitive because the other sellers are sending offers at the same time. So I don’t think Fiverr could ever be the primary income for most sellers.

Oh, and I NEVER use the BRs.

That’s where the “cheap” Buyers exist and desperate Sellers go (my opinion).

I hope Fiverr has a way to let sellers communicate with buyers even outside the Buyer Request.

I joined on 22nd July, 2016 to buy something. Posted the first gig on 27-28th July. And delivered the first order on 1st August, 2016.

So less than a week.

1 week is very impressive! May I ask what service are you offering on your gigs?

It took me a little over a month. After that, I ended up getting several orders for about two weeks. Now I don’t have many new buyers (mostly just returning ones), but I’m fine with that because I’m mostly working on another platform.

Replace “cheap” by ‘people with no soul’ and I agree with you

Wow!

That’s priceless.

And the most funny part is that he is just a random person streaming on twitch with poor amount of followers and will never get any success or be popular as if just filming himself with a camera while playing games would make him famous and he won’t find anyone literally working for free doing quality video editing :rofl:

Scary.

That being said, I actually suggested to a newbie on another thread to try their luck at the BRs.

I must not have had my morning coffee yet.

Here’s a fresh one from the land of VO Buyer Requests…

Basically requesting a s** chat on a forced/r*** scenario…

what the hell is this, oh yeah, the ■■■■■■ predators, i already forgot about them, it’s insane that there is such a population on fiverr, it’s at this moment you lose faith in humanity

I don’t know if they are serious or trolling but some people have brain problems.

Who the hell would make 3 videos and thumbnails for 5€, he could ask for our credit card, it would make more sense than his request :rofl:
