Is Fiverr Still Suitable For New Sellers?


Recommended Posts

There are many friends of mine looking to start their career in the online platforms. Fiverr is their first choice, and they are quite skillful to become successful in the web development domain. But my concern is, after starting my journey with this marketplace, it was not an easy journey to come to this far. With the excessive number of freelancers, it is now even more challenging to attract buyers and ensure continuous monthly earning. 

My concern is: 
1. How do you rate Fiverr for the newcomers? Is it still the best platform for the people looking to start their career in an online marketplace? 
2. Does Fiverr still promote new gigs? 
3. What will be the most suitable service to start with? 

Thank you. If you got time from your busy schedule, please do not hesitate to share your thoughts. Your opinion will really mean a lot.

Is it impossible for new sellers to make it on the platform? No. Is it hard? Yes, especially in saturated categories.

I would go with a newcomer even if he has no reviews if they can communicate well with me and am confident they can provide what I'm looking for. The problem is that these kinds of new comers are few and far between. It's like looking for a needle in a haystack. Is it the best platform? That's another discussion altogether. I find it a nice place in a sense you don't have to bid for so and so and just get orders directly from people searching. They have put a ton of money into marketing so there are new buyers coming in everyday. Sadly, not as fast as the no. of newcomers signing up.

I think they give some sort of push for new sellers. But then there are so many new sellers, so I don't know how much of a difference that makes.

A service you certainly are capable of delivering.

You're actually an established seller so I'm sure you can give some suggestions to your friends as well.

Yes, this is true. Hence the phrase, don't put all your eggs in one basket.

Brilliant, sir. Honestly, you are a gem.

Thank you for your splendid reply. Really means a lot. I can just forward your reply to my friends and I believe they are going to get answers for all questions they have in your mind.

No, it isnt. K, thx, bye. Let's all spread this message, and maybe, in a few years, it will be suitable again and even hungry for new sellers 😉

 

Seriously, though, sure it is. The entrance barrier is close to non-existant, you don't have to pay a single cent until you actually earn (yet), every newcomer starts out with the same chance, and the same blank canvas and tools and no reviews to craft their Gigs™ and build their customer base.

If you have something to offer that you can do well and that is in demand, you have a chance.

If you haven't, back to school or the drawing board until you have, or go for something else, find or create a job locally. ⬅️ Last two paragraphs are valid for any platform, not just Fiverr.

1. Most of the freelancers think Fiverr is a better option than other marketplaces. Because here you can create gigs and send proposals in free of cost.  Here you'll find numerous numbers of buyers. So obviously there will be a better chance to get the 1st order

2. Yes, Fiverr still promote new gigs. But it's better to choose low competitive keywords. Otherwise, it's so hard to get your gig on the 1st page.

3. You shouldn't ask that question. You should create gigs based on those categories on which you are really good at
