I feel like I'm in a lot of frustration, I think the profession should be given up.


Recommended Posts

I haven't received any order in last 14+ days. Sometimes I would get two knocks but would not order. Gig titles, gig descriptions and gig tags made like professionals, gig images are very high quality. Impressions are gained in a fluid, global, diffused way. I feel like I'm in a lot of frustration, I think the profession should be given up. I have seen many brothers who are not getting orders even after having a few five star reviews they want to leave this WordPress sector. I am hoping for advice from dear brothers on what I should do?

Do you have a business plan? Growth plan? Crisis plan? 
I will say something harsh: if you don’t have any of those and just staying on fiverr to earn your income then that’s just a hobby, not a profession. 
It takes time to build a business that will sustain you without relying on third parties like fiverr and you definitely should have a plan for slower periods on any of the platforms because that happens and you can not control it.

It's not much of a surprise. The last time I checked, there were 100,000+ WordPress gigs, and I seriously doubt that there's enough demand for that service to keep all those sellers constantly busy.

Since I'm not your brother (and since you don't seem to feel that women could advise you, which isn't very nice of you), I hope that one or more of your brothers (are your brothers even on Fiverr?) will be able to help you.

14 days only? and you want to give up, Sorry to say this but that's not being manly enough. 

I am in my 3rd week now without orders and I am still waiting and being patient and improving my skills every day

 I think the profession should be given up. 

[...]

 I should do?

To be honest, if you already want to give up after 14 days, being in a hyper competitive niche, no less, yes. 

Maybe first do some extensive research and reading about what a profession is, what it means to start out as a freelancer, how to stand out from competition, etc., before you try again, in the same or whichever niche. 

Just setting up a Gig on a platform is no guarantee that anyone will order, or will think that what you're offering is actually your profession, especially not within a time span ad short as 14 days, and especially not if you're not offering something that's unique and in demand, or so much in demand that it's not already fulfilled by the current providers.

Just enhance your skills beyond wordpress. Nowadays JS based frameworks are high in demand like React.JS, Node.JS and Next.JS. I am in this field from last 12 years. Mentioned is based on my personal experience. You are a web developer and you should have multiple technologies in your skill-set. You can't sit with one technology. You might found it difficult to digest but this is my personal experience. I did 3 projects recently. One was based on Next.JS, 2nd was based on Python(Django framework) and 3rd was based on Laravel(PHP's framework). With that much experience I am still learning. So, my personal suggestion is to add some more skills and you will get work brother. This suggestion is also applicable to all fiverr's users with same problem

Hmm... I thought that maybe the OP addressed "dear brothers" by mistake, or as a phrase of speech that wasn't to be taken literally, but now it looks like he really doesn't want people who are not his brothers to respond.

So, no sisters. Or women. Or anyone who isn't his brother.

My apologies for the off-topic post, everyone; I'm out of here now.

You have read the post that I have informed my dear brothers to help me, so why did you reply here?

OK dude, Let me help you out.  The way you worded your post made some of the female members of the forum feel as if you didn't value their opinion, and they were letting you know that. This is why "brothers" is ok for your buddies, but hardly proper for business.   

(Full disclosure) I am not his brother, just a guy who hates to stand by and watch a train wreck.

 I did not get an order until 45 days after I began my Fiverr journey. Nonetheless, I have become a successful Fiverr TRS seller with almost five years of experience and nearly 2000 orders.

The key to success here is to improve the quality of your work, your gigs, and your customer service. Do not merely make gigs and sit back and wait.

During the 45 days, I did not have orders, I continually improved my gigs, and I hired an artist to create great gig images for me.

Hi Newsmaker, If I am not following you, I am going to start today. You always have a great way of translating!

Man there is like half million people claiming to be wp expert here. Why would anyone use your service when they could just buy the theme for 2$? or use builder like you guys for only 10$/m.
Unlike early 2000's these things doesn't require any technical skills.  Most people would spend 30 more minutes to learn from youtube than spend money on random guy in internet. Specially if they granting access to valuable information and access to server etc...

Well said Mike. Looks like the post was removed anyway. Guessing it was reported and removed, or maybe, just maybe, he realised what a complete plonker he is and deleted it himself. If you approach your customers with the same level of ignorance you'll never be successful here, and that won't bother me one bit.
