Why I'm not getting any Fiverr briefs, nor either order?

Hi @ham_raza, Fiverr sent a notice to all web designers last year telling them to set their minimum prices to $80 for web design, with a warning that if they didn't change their pricing, they would experience less visibility in search (which will affect the amount of orders that they are getting). 

I noticed that you haven't gotten an order for 11 months and your lowest package is for $30 (to design a 5-page Elementor website). So that's one reason why you might not be seeing orders on that gig. Also, on all your gigs, you aren't utilizing the gig gallery to its fullest potential. You have a few images that contain too many words and don't show what you can do - and for a visually based service such as web design, that's huge. You won't convince any buyer of what you can do unless you can show them examples of your work - so put together a good portfolio for each of your gigs. You have a gig video, 3 images, and 2 PDFs that you can use to your advantage.

It's also important to understand all the factors that may be influencing your visibility on search. Every seller gets a Match Score, which tells Fiverr how relevant that seller is in search, for Promoted Gigs, and the Get Brief feature. @frank_d wrote a great series to help sellers understand all of the different factors that go into that match score and you can read his articles here:

I found these articles super helpful in understanding what I should focus on in my business - and it's not all about titles, tags, and SEO. It's about your quality of services and your ability to convert buyers into orders and create happy, repeat buyers.

I attempted to follow your suggestions and have just made my gigs more expensive and much more in line with the details and the content. Any traffic or suggestions for me gigs is much appreciated.

What about new seller? Do you really think for a new seller people will purchase $80 of services where we have already in the market who have lvl 2 and still selling a landing page for $80. 

Of course the client will choose the lvl 2 seller who is offering $80, because as a new seller there will be no orders and reviews and why the client will hire a new seller for $80. No matter how a new seller is experienced in a client perspective, obviously client will not hire a new seller for $80

Hi @jabirahamed20 - For this ⬆️, you have to build value in the eyes of your prospective buyers.

I would, as a buyer, pay $80 (really much more - $250, $500, or more with customizations/support) if I thought that the seller (new seller or experienced) could give me the website that I'm looking for. I wouldn't, if the seller's gigs and profile look generic, like many of the other sellers on the platform offering web design services. New sellers have all the tools they need to make their profile and gigs stand out and look more credible, trustworthy, and appealing to their buyers. However, most don't take advantage of the tools they have or they don't focus on appealing to their buyers.

For me (and other buyers wanting to launch a website), what we really are looking for is someone who will take away the headache of launching a website. It seems easy in theory, but when the spacing is all off on the headers and or there is somehow an unknown toggle button turned on causing issues, this seemingly simple process can quickly grow into a big headache and a half-finished website that never actually got "published." That's really where your value is - you are the solution to your buyer's pain. So tailor your gigs with these pain points in mind.

As a buyer, I ultimately went with a seller who calmed my "launching a website" anxiety well before I even placed an order. Every word that I read in the gig description and FAQs let me know that this seller was going to take good care of me. Every interaction in the inbox and order chats also reassured me that everything was going to be okay.

As a newbie seller, use all the tools that Fiverr gives you to reassure your buyers that you are the seller for them. Make them forget about badges (and they will, if they see that you can provide them what they are looking for).

When I was a newbie seller, I spent a lot of time trying to build credibility through my gig gallery (e.g., gig video, pictures, and PDFs). I even created a PDF for each gig to help the buyer get the most out of their Fiverr experiences (for example, a guide I made, "Top 10 Ways to Get Started on Fiverr"). This included tips on navigating the platform, the order pages, and accessing resources and customer support. I also used PDFs to showcase more examples of my work/services than could be shown in a single picture or gig video. Many of my first buyers who placed orders with me would let me know that they saw something in my gig gallery that they liked and so they reached out to me in my inbox. Once I started getting orders, I let my delivery images replace a lot of these guides and portfolio samples.

Sellers who focus on meeting the needs and concerns of their buyers, even before orders are placed, often do very well on Fiverr.
