Help: Been on fiverr since 2019, still no orders!

Question

Hi everyone! 

It's been 02 years since I'm on Fiverr but I still can't make it to even one order. I joined Fiverr back in May 2019 but didn't know much, so ended up quitting. Fiverr removed my gig afterward. I made a gig some 10 days ago, but I still have 28 impressions and 2 clicks. 

 

I've been doing freelance content writing for so long via social media platforms, and I know the stuff. But I'm unable to grab much attention from potential buyers at Fiverr. I'm depressed and confused at this socio-professional dilemma.

 

Please check out my gig and share your thoughts on how can I do better to attract potential buyers and secure orders.

Waiting for read your suggestions. Thank you in anticipation!

Your English is okay... I'm not a writer but I can tell your choice of words and sentence structure is a bit off in some areas. You don't need perfect English to succeed here of course, but you are in the line of writing services so you might want to look into the top rated sellers and understand your competition. 

"I am a 3rd-year medical student who has got a literary brain. I grew up in harsh times that made my soul feed on literature. Since my childhood, I love to read and write a lot. I've been doing freelance content writing for the last two years."

"I feel confident to help you with inciting newsletters, compelling emails, and engaging web content. As I have a Medicine background, I am also well-versed in biomedical writings and health blogs. So, feel free to seek my assistance."

Some points I found a bit off

- inciting newsletters

- A medicine background? Or a background in Medicine... Medical background.

- who has got a literary brain

- I grew up in harsh times that made my soul feed on literature

Again, your English is okay and you probably might find some buyers who are on a budget, but there are a looooot of sellers in the writing category with a similar writing skill level as you that have already gotten sales and probably lots of repeat bulk/budget buyers. So you might want to do some research and understand your competition. Find a competitive advantage (e.g. your background in medicine, specialize in those kind of articles or niche healthcare topics), market your gig, make offers in the buyer requests section. Fiverr is in a place right now that if you're a new seller you really need to work on getting a couple of active first sales to get (passive) sales. Unless of course you have an established clientele before Fiverr that you redirected to purchasing your gigs, you will have to market your gigs or get buyers somehow. It is difficult to get a sale (as in just waiting for someone to purchase) when you don't have sales to begin with. Buyers usually just go with those with an established profile already.

Absolutely! @theratypistis actually being very kind. This is going to hurt - a lot, but for writing gigs, your English has to be not good, but perfect. Just one error (and there are many) will mean your potential buyers will walk. That is the simple reason why you have no orders. No amount of gig optimization, creative pricing etc will change that. Sorry!
