main reasons for not getting any orders from buyer requests? If anyone knows, please share☹️

Poor English is one biggie for me. If the buyer is offering to provide a service that requires being proficient in English, such a proofreading or writing, and their English is not impeccable then I do not want to do business with them. 

Also, if a seller contacts me through my inbox due to seeing my Buyer request, I will report them as being a spammer.

I did not mention the GIG, but the profile.

Like I said, your gig is already linked on the buyer's offer responses page. Fiverr does this for you. It would, therefore, be a redundant waste of space to post a link in your seller response. And why would you want to post a link to your PROFILE, when a link to your gig (already provided by Fiverr) is the only link relevant to the buyer's request? Any descriptive information about you, originally shared on your profile, is already automatically posted on all of your gigs.

I suppose sending the link to your profile to talk about the project in greater detail is a good option.

This would be a complete waste of space in the BR offer, since your gig is already linked on the response page that the buyer sees.

How can I do this job if I don't know how many books this person needs? Well, for that I need you to contact me if he or she wants me to do the job because I need that additional information.

Like I said, buyers can see a link to the seller's gig in their list of seller responses. There is also a button that allows the buyer to contact the seller -- to discuss a project, if need be. There is no reason to waste space in an already limited-length seller response with an unnecessary profile link. Fiverr already provides these things for every seller response. They make it VERY easy for buyers to communicate with the seller(s) of their choice. 

I know this, because I have posted buyer requests (as a buyer), and I know exactly what options are available to buyers on their list of seller responses.

And if you think that everyone knows how to click a photo to go to a profile, you are wrong because there are many people who need detailed instructions to navigate the platforms.

Fiverr makes it EXTREMELY easy for buyers to initiate communication with the seller connected to a response of their choice. It is not hard for a buyer to choose who, and how they wish to communicate. You're acting HURTING your chances of getting a response, by trying to cram all sorts of unnecessary, "please, please, please respond to my offer" content in a seller response. Just keep it simple. Address the needs of the buyer, and leave it up to them as to whom they want to contact. Don't post extra links that you don't need, or else you might come across as begging. I know, for a fact, that buyers are more likely to ignor sellers who do this. The options to respond to you, are already available with all responses.

I did not mention the GIG, but the profile. Many buyers post descriptions with little information and there are times when it is necessary to clarify certain things to apply to certain jobs.

"I have a series of books to make the cover" -says in the buyer request- Budget $ 150. How can I do this job if I don't know how many books this person needs? Well, for that I need you to contact me if he or she wants me to do the job because I need that additional information. And logically the only way is to send me a private message. This is what I meant by submitting the profile link. And if you think that everyone knows how to click a photo to go to a profile, you are wrong because there are many people who need detailed instructions to navigate the platforms. There are even many who cannot find the files they have to download when one delivers them.

I have personally applied to some interesting buyer application jobs but there were too many proposals and no luck. I suppose sending the link to your profile to talk about the project in greater detail is a good option.
