  1. Hello @andresakesia, welcome to Fiverr. It might take a long time until you get your first order. Also, because Fiverr is an English-based platform for most of the transactions, offering Portuguese services might limit your options. I also offer translation services from Portuguese to English and vice-versa, as I am Brazilian-Canadian. However, 99% of my services are based on English language services. I am not discouraging you. I just want to give you a better perspective on how you can manage your expectations. Maybe Fiverr would be a limited platform for you. I wish you all the best. 🙂

  2. Fiverr is a platform like an open business. In order to gain attention, you have to market yourself the best you can to stand out. Have a website (if you can, of course), share your gigs on your Social Media (not thousands of times like I have seen some people in here), have a LinkedIn account and connect your profile in there. Have patience, always improve yourself in the meantime. Like any local business, we have to show our potential buyers that we are available and leave the door open. They will come eventually. Good luck!

  4. Keep active on social media and share your gig links online. If you are able to create a website for your services, generate relevant content to add value and increase your presence on search engine websites. The results will come with patience and hard work. Good luck!

  5. I would suggest you to check your competitors on Fiveer. Your niche is very competitive and you have many sellers leveled up already that offer similar gigs for a lower price. I would do a research and maybe lower your price a bit just to get a few orders and start with your reviews. Once you start to level up, than you can increase. That’s my suggestion for you. Good luck!

  6. Sir,

    I put 5$ because someone suggests I offer low prices at the beginning.

    I understand, however, if you are a qualified and certified proofreader you can prove your qualifications and charge fairly. Again, what everyone is trying to help you here is for you to find your niche of expertise and them offer services that you are qualified for and be successful. Good luck!

  7. I agree with everyone’s feedback. Also, your gigs are completely all over the place. You are not specialized in anything, which means you do not add value to your client.

    $5 for a professional book editing up to 5000 words? Even the cheapest client can smell the lack of professionalism.

    This is not for you to feel discouraged, however, if you want to be successful on any platform, offer something you are good at, and you can add value to your customer.

    Freelancing is not a hobby; it is a job and if you want to grow as a freelancer, take it seriously.

    Good luck!

  8. I try to include all the previous “bad” experiences I had upfront on my quotes trying to avoid the same problems in the future.

    I do the same here, but sometimes you notice that the client (maybe) is reselling your services only after the order is placed, for example, and that’s when the problems start to happen, and some people try their best to get free stuff. I guess we need to have even more careful when setting all the details with the client.

    Also, I feel the same about the scams and to be honest, I have turned down a few tasks because I was getting a bad feeling.

    I totally understand. The number of scams are increasing around here too.

    Wish you all the best and many many sales.

    I agree. I feel that sometimes people come to Fiveer to outsource and they feel that freelance is not a “serious” job. I love freelancing and the lifestyle and I wish people would respect freelancers and their time. We are not here just desperate for sales. It is our job. Good luck to you too!

  9. I try to include all the previous “bad” experiences I had upfront on my quotes trying to avoid the same problems in the future. For example: one revision will be allowed as long as it is reasonable and according to the initial briefing. For extra revisions, a charge will be applied."

  10. thanks for you advice. I am bidding the least price and almost replying to every related project even I text to some sellers. I have created gig after seeing the high gigs. but lets see what happens

    Do not be discouraged. Because of Covid, there are tones of new sellers. Also, I find that some of the tests that Fiveer offer to take for free are great to display your qualifications. Also, check the Learn from Fiveer. There are some great courses in there. Good luck.

  11. It took me a couple of weeks to really get orders. Be patient, keep replying to all your messages. Check the price of your competitors also. As a new seller, I would advice you to keep your price lower until you are able to secure some orders and feedbacks. Good luck!
