Hey Jonbaas,

I am new on Fiverr. Now it's more difficult to get orders. So, what should I do to get orders from Fiverr?

Unfortuantely, the new sellers who keep asking me this question -- respectfully, you included -- have no idea how to manage a business, and seem to think that Fiverr is a place to get easy orders, and by default, easy money. That's not what freelancing is, and that's not how Fiverr works. A freelancer is an independent salesperson who chooses to offer their skilled services, to those who need those skills, on their own terms (i.e., not employed by a company). So, if you want to earn orders here on Fiverr, learn to think like an independent businessman, set goals for yourself, work your butt off to reach those goals, stop expecting easy money, stop complaining about things being too hard, and find creative ways to connect to your target customers, and show them that you have the skills that they need.

The only person keeping you from "getting orders", is you. Stop complaining, and start thinking like a freelancer!

Literally, the only way to get work on Fiverr now is for them to send it to you. If they aren't sending it to you, then it's completely out of your hands. You can no longer search for people seeking what you do, and in my case, I can't even audition for possible jobs, as I do voice over/voice acting work. 

Respectfully, this isn't a case of being lazy. Here is something I found in their FAQ section.

#2: "Buyers ore only matched to the highest quality services and most relevant sellers, this helps narrow down the competition in the marketplace"
        Assuming that "highest quality services" is based on previous work (reviews) on the platform, a new seller is SOL.
#3: "Buyers are only matched with high-quality sellers"
       Again... Most likely based on previous work on the platform.

This seems (to me) to be a case of "How the hell do we get experience if every position requires experience." This severely limits someone who is new to the platform, or in my case had to create a new account because you can't change your user name (long story, not going into it).
