How long does it take on average to get the first order.

Recommended Posts

Hello Fiverr,

I am a new seller on fiverr and very curious to know that, how much time does it take usually to get the first buyer message or first order. 


Please enlighten me. 


Thanks for reading.

The simple answer is “ there is no Avg time”
Order depends on many thing like your gig including description, sample, services, price and buyer request.
Make high quality gigs (as many as allowed)
Add the best portfolio
Title should be not too complicated
Use the most relevant tags
Select your price wisely
Use buyer request daily (use it for sending your offers to sellers not for your advertisement)
Use social media platform for your advertisement,
You can get order in few days 🙂

Only Fiverr will probably know an accurate answer to this.

What you could do is add a poll to see how long it took people to get their first order/first message but it might be different for people who started a few years ago (when there was less competition) compared to those who started recently. Maybe it depends on different things like the subcategory of the gigs etc. Like has been suggested, sending offers to buyer requests (for things you could do well) will probably increase the chance of getting orders/messages, depending on the offers you send.

There's no set average. It depends on what you offer, how good you are at what you do, whether there are buyers looking for the service(s) that you offer, how many sellers offer the same kind of service... and the last time I checked, there were almost 16,000 web design gigs on Fiverr. Which means that you'll need to come up with a way to get noticed among thousands of others offering the same thing.
