well, the difference between me and you is that I see the glass half full 😉 don't worry about all those things. 

The true difference between me and you is that I am looking at the bigger picture.

Also: do you actively use Buyer Request?

Do you get orders from bidding?

Frank, from my point of view, the mechanism works. Also, you are a veteran seller so you know Fiverr works constantly to improve. I trust 100% their vision. You should as well 🙂 did you talk with all of this with your Success Manager?

I have discussed things with several executives, I don’t talk about where the platform is heading with my SM.

I have discussed with executives as well, and also at round tables, but the platform improves month after month. This is what I care 🙂 I think anything is going well.

Round tables? What are you talking about?

I see there’s no point in carrying this conversation.

So keep on doing what you can and I will in turn intervene where moderation is needed.

It's true! You don't need to have 10+ certificates that "proof" your knowledge. No one gives a sh*t about your name on a piece of paper. 

If you can SHOW them your past work, show them that you are capable - THAT'S what sells!

Buyer requests are a race to the bottom.

Fiverr is working on replacing this feature, and the only reason they are not shutting it down at the moment is because right now new fiverr accounts that are not set up correctly can only get orders through BR.

I will start hiding all BR tips threads as I truly think they hold no real value.

Any new sellers would be better off working on their profile to get orders organically than competing with hundreds of sellers over the same request. 
 

So the only tip re: Buyer requests worth spreading is “stop using it”.

This makes perfect sense. Show, don't tell. But how is a new seller supposed to show their work if only allowed to show 3 images in a gig listing? I've seen a lot of other listings with over 20 images. Seems biased against new sellers who are at a competitive disadvantage when listing their gigs next to other sellers who are allowed to SHOW a lot more of their work.

Obviously I'm new here. Maybe I'm missing something. I'd love to be clued in.

You can start by following ManuelMarino's Tip #1 that he links to in his first message EXCEPT that his profile picture is not actually a good example because it is blurry and shows far too many instruments.  It's only good in the respect that it shows exactly what his business is - music.  He could have done that with far less clutter.  I wrote several articles on just that topic - taking the perfect profile picture and even ghostwrote a book a book that included the subject.  Follow an example more like frank_d's beautiful pic and make yourself look more like a friendly, likeable person to put yourself immediately one step ahead. 

Step 2:  Read everything you can on the forums about promoting your gigs and deliver stunning service to every customer you get.  It takes time but you will move up. After years, I'm only a level 2 seller but I have nothing but five star ratings and I have consistent work - enough to make a living.  Being at the top of the ladder isn't everything.  Sometimes being a tuna fish rather than a shark is enough.  Dolphins kill sharks - but they leave tunas alone.
