Hello fiverr fam,

I was on a break from fiverr since 4 months. But after backing up and continuously submitting buyer request I’m not getting enough orders. Can you please help me out.

Hi there, 

 

Sorry that you're not getting any orders. I'll try to give you some recommendations you can try to follow, to get back on track with your selling. 

First of all; don't listen to people who tell you to never take breaks, like @dev_naymul247. This is just bad advice. Of course you should take breaks when needed. If you're always "on", always working, you'll go insane fast. 

I won't pretend to know why you took four months off, but hey, we all got our reasons when we need time off. Totally understandable. 

But it can be hard to get started again after such a long break from Fiverr. I see that you're a fairly new seller, and have just nine reviews under your belt so far. That could be part of the reason. New sellers will often get "boosted" in the search results to help get them started. After a while, you're on your own. At least that's my experience from talking to a bunch of new sellers who've had a great start, but seems to have lost that "edge" over time. 

If you've been off the site for a while, that probably means you haven't responded to messages. It also means you haven't had any seller activity for a long while. I like to say that Fiverr rewards orders with more orders (from happy buyers who loved your service, that is). 

In other words, being inactive can cause you to drop down the ranks in the algorithm pretty quickly. 

There are a few things you can do to mitigate this when you're coming back. Try refreshing your profile with a new and professional profile picture. Update your gig descriptions to make sure they are top-notch, without any misspellings and grammar issues. There are are few in your gig descriptions so it can be improved a bit. 

Make sure your keywords are updated and relevant for each gig, and freshen up the gig thumbnails. 

These things will tell the algorithm that something "new" is going on with your gigs, so it will try to "re-learn" your gigs, to determine where it belongs in the search results. 

You're already sending out responses to buyer requests. That's good to get started, but if your replies are just copy/pasted or contains bad grammar, you'll get lost in the pile with all the other non-relevant copy/pasted answers. Start off by not writing the exact same answer to everyone. Every request is unique, so make sure that your reponse reflects it. 

And rememer: it takes time to recover a profile. Give it a few weeks, tweak your gigs, and most important of all: impress the buyers that actually do come along. Nothing can beat impressing buyers with great work and service, and buyer satisfaction is alpha and omega when it comes to ranking on Fiverr. 

Best of luck!

Everyone needs a break sometime. You can't work 24/7 and expect to give good customer service. It has been proven that people that take breaks from work, not long ones but for instance one day a week to take care of things they want to do or need to do. Never force yourself to work day and night constantly. Burnout is very hard to get over. I should know after having 2 jobs and family things to contend with.
