What Have I Done To Deserve This?

For the past few months, my journey on Fiverr has been a rollercoaster of emotions and uncertainty. I find myself in a situation where I haven't received a single order for the last three months.

I have been on Fiverr for 5 Years now, and I am thankful to Fiverr that I made a good living out of it. I always suggested and supported Fiverr.  However, lately, the orders have decreased and then just finished. My Gig ranking seems to have vanished into thin air. Honestly, the confidence that once fueled my creativity has been replaced with doubt and frustration. I felt so much better when I got a good review. It made me so happy. I love my work. However, I think I am not needed anymore.

The most confusing part is that despite the positive reviews and a record that should qualify me as a top-rated seller, the recognition seems to elude me. I can't help but question what went wrong. What have I done to deserve this?

I've spent countless hours analyzing my gig descriptions, optimizing my keywords, and seeking advice from experienced freelancers. Some might say that personal reviews matter, but my clients, whom I've come to consider friends, have been nothing but satisfied. They've appreciated my dedication, attention to detail, and ability to turn their ideas into reality.

I'm sharing this not to seek pity but to open up about the emotional journey I've been on. Maybe the tides will turn, and our talents will return to the spotlight. I believe I am not alone.

Reason is that within 4 months, you have received one 3.7* and one 4.7* reviews and those buyers might have given you negative reviews as well that's why your gigs still seems to be under-effect of those reviews. Hence things are not going well at your end.

And yes, Personal/Private Reviews still matters a lot. You have no idea that your buyers have given you positive reviews or negative (private reviews). Publicly they give you positive but private review can be negative or different (no one can see or knows this). Because of those reviews, your performance score and buyer satisfaction rates have been dropped.

And why are you focusing on becoming a TRS? If you have completed the TRS's requirements then it does not mean that you will become a TRS right away.. It takes a lot of things into consideration i.e. BSR, Performance scores and other things and it can take months/years to become TRS. So don't focus on it. Just improve your services and keep delivering quality work. Hopefully, you will be back to track soon!
