  1. I am unwilling to invest in Fiverr while their silly punitive analytics based penalties apply. I have been knocked back from 2 to 0 three times now - not my fault. Because of the reduction in marketing opportunities, it takes about 6 months to recover with the consequent loss of income. But thanks anyway. Kerry
  2. I am getting quite frustrated by the Buyer Request limit of 10 a day. I do understand that there needs to be a limit as some unprofessional people might abuse the Buyer Request system. Fiverr is getting tougher and tougher as we get more sellers. Furthermore, my gigs seem to get more and less prominence in a way that I do not understand! I have done nearly 900 gigs. One strategy is to respond to more Buyer Requests. I have responded to nearly 3000 requests. All my responses are professional and are only to requests where I know I can do a great gig. I have an information system set up so I can respond usefully. The limit of 10 means that I can only respond to about 50% of possible buyers any day. I think the limit of 10 is too low. I think level 1 or 2 two sellers could have a higher limit. Maybe Fiverr could also monitor the Requests and if there are too many complaints about one responder, then they can ban that responder.

  3. The buyers that concern me are 1) those that expect that my $30 gig will revolutionize their business and make them a million dollars and 2) those that think I can read their minds!!! They tend to be inexperienced. And they are the ones which get me into trouble with Fiverr and get my levels reduced. I have done over 800 gigs.
  4. Answer lots and lots of buyer requests. It is hard work. I have replied to over 2500 requests. The few that respond are almost worth it
  5. I like the ones which assume I can be a mind reader!! I also like the ones which expect me to do a $30 gig and they expect that the result will change their business and make them megabucks.
  6. (un-hearable songs scare me - if they are not proud enough to show it, how bad it is really?) And yes people do apply for them. It is of course no wonder that they get poor quality work as that is what they are creating. Sellers who encourage this only make it worse for themselves as sellers this sociopathic will bring nothing but pain. And that song, will be too terrible to use in the Portfolio and their review will be worthless seeing it will sound fake like “great work bro”. 🙂 I never respond to anyone who threatens me!
  7. Just accept the cancellation and get on with life. Not worth the effort!!!
  8. I have sent over 2000 responses to Buyer Requests. Only a few reply. Even fewer accept my offer. That is business.
  9. Keep trying. I have an excellent record but Fiverr keeps knocking me back, I have sent over 2400 responses to Buyer Requests and I get a reasonable number back!
  10. I regret my apparent condescension. I do not know you. I wonder if you have some insights. Most - almost all my gigs - require discussion with my buyer. I ask awkward questions. Sometimes people take a while to reply. Sometimes they ignore the request for extension time - why do they care? And the extension request is not well done by Fiverr who do not make the point. And this even happens with people who are more than delighted with what they get. And so I go down levels losing both kudos, ability to list all my gigs and reduction in Buyer Requests. I get a lot of orders from Buyer Requests - I have sent over 2000 of them with a level of success. So how do I get over that?
  11. Maybe if you didn’t have this attitude you wouldn’t have so many issues with buyers. Successful business people focus on things they can control. What attitude? Trying hard to deliver a good service? Successful business people control what they can control and monitor what they cannot control - it’s in all the business text books. I cannot control the crass stupidity and arrogance of a new Fiverr customer.
  12. Ok so do I. Please refer me to your answers. They could save me thousands every year.
  13. Then you have a lot to learn about business. You can be here and respect yourself at the same time. We are not slaves to our buyers. There are many ways to mitigate the impact of the things that are unfair about this place. I have been in business for a long time. Most of my gigs are advising people about business! So tell me how to mitigate those things which are unfair - because they have cost me a fortune in right now and in the past.
