Send many buyer request with your service

Doing this does not guarantee orders. In fact, most new sellers never earn a sale from the buyer request section, so, this does not guarantee success.

provide Unlimited revisions

Please do NOT do this. Providing unlimited revisions gives your valuable work away for free, and opens the door for bad buyers to take advantage of you. When you offer unlimited revisions, you are legally obligated to keep providing as many revisions for your buyers, for as long as they wish to keep asking for them. They could keep asking for free "revisions" for years, and you would have to keep delivering more work. Does this really sound like something you want to do?

Your gig video is quite distorted when viewing it in the thumbnail due to Fiverr gig videos preferring to be in landscape format instead of vertical.

You have numerous grammatical issues within your gig video and your gig description, and your description is also incredibly brief and vague.

Your gig video in and of itself doesn't really convey anything about your service. It is text over someone lighting candles and pouring tea and includes the tonally desperate text "Become my client."

Posting replies as in the above with no useful purpose can only be seen as spamming the forum.

PS. Posting on the forum will not get you sales or benefit your Fiverr account in any way.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

Oh no, are my eyes distorted instead, only allowing me to see distorted versions of reality?  Are all my videos distorted as well, and distorted in such a way that they appear normal to my distorted eyes? Pretty existential questions, we may never know the answer...

The start with Fiverr can be very frustrating, as I am experiencing myself at this time. As a new seller your gig will go active, but that doesn't mean that it is listed at all if someone just looks under your category. In am example, I am offering a gig in "Translation". The first service option is that language pair, in my case English to German. That would be the first stop for any buyer, I guess, when he is looking for a translation. But, surprise, my gig is not even listed. The result list contains four pages of gigs and mine is not among them. No wonder, I don't see any impressions and clicks in the statistics.

Now, Fiverr will say: Your gig can be found by entering the right keywords in the search bar. This is true. But, how many buyers will search that way? Not very many.

Things are supposed to get better, once a seller reaches level 1. But without seeing an order that might take, well a very long time.

Are there other ways of improving sales on Fiverr? Some claim that Buyer Requests are a possible way to go. That might be true for certain categories. In my case I have seen single buyer request in 3 days now, and that one looked like it was a fake request from another seller.

So, it looks to me that Fiverr is being overrun with new sellers and blocks them effectively to keep the existing and proven seller base protected. That's just my personal impression. Anyway, I do not expect to see any orders coming in from Fiverr soon.

That is quite the assertion to make. Fiverr being overrun with new sellers is nothing new and absolutely true (and I was one of them when the pandemic was just starting get global), but "blocking" new sellers...😬

Fiverr is very much "performance" driven, which is why the successful generally become even more so, and on the inverse, the unsuccessful have a tendency to remain in such a state. The Fiverr algorithm supposedly gives a visibility boost to brand new sellers to help give them a fighting chance at discoverability, but don't expect Fiverr to constantly showcase untested or under performing gigs at the platforms own detriment.

Not constantly pushing new gigs is nowhere near the same as "blocking" new sellers. There has to come a point where the gigs need to convert orders or else what's the use.

"Blocking" is perhaps to strong a word. But Fiverr makes it difficult these days for new sellers to gain visibility. And I can't blame them. They are profit oriented and don't want a flood of new sellers with unknown quality of service ruin their proven business with the existing seller base. Absolutely legitimate - we don't pay for our gigs to be displayed, so we can't expect anything!

Nevertheless, being one of those new sellers myself, I would wish to have a better chance to be seen at all, and be it on page 15 of the results in my category. As things run in the moment, I don't see a chance to get an order via Fiverr in the near future, if at all. And I don't know, what I could do to change this. Improving my gig? If nobody sees it, I can improve it as much as I want. So my plea to Fiverr is: Show new sellers a real pathway how to get a foothold. And if you fear to get unqualified sellers onboard, institute tests. Or ask money for a gig to be displayed and then the wheat will automatically separate from the chaff. Professional users don't shy away from paying for advertisement. At the same time they could reduce the percentage they take from the revenue.

how does that contribute to this thread?

It is clear that we need to do more ourselves to build our business and increase our sales. If you read the forum regularly, one of the common mantras is “you should not rely solely on Fiverr”. I see it posted daily and I agree with it as I am sure you do too. The problem is - many of us still do.
This post is to help anyone who is prepared to take matters into their own hands and really focus on building their business. 

The above is from the article I posted above.

This applies to everyone who wants to get orders and be successful.

Will leave this with you.

That we all should do more in marketing and advertising is kind of a truism. The real question is: When I do advertising, should I send my potential customers to my Fiverr gigs or directly to my own website? The Fiverr business model works in my opinion in the following simple way: Fiverr provides the advertising via it's website and takes in return 20% of the revenue. Simple as that. Now, if I have to do the advertisement myself, why in the world would I need Fiverr? So, with all due respect, I regard all the "bring your own customers to Fiverr and you will be successful" as kind of ... well let's questionable.

Just my brief input. Yes, starting on 5r is hard, but getting ahead is possible. I'm a L1 and doing quite nicely thank you after just 5 months. 
One thing I didn't do was plague this forum with requests for people to sort my life out!  I got off my proverbial butt and worked it out for myself.
