Wondering how to get orders from Fiverr? Understandably so it is so easy to feel lost on the platform.

You are probably frustrated because you are not getting orders from Fiverr after spending weeks on it.

So, let’s get started.

How to get your first order on Fiverr?

  1. Select your niche.
  2. Based on Your Audience Industry
  3.  Skill Up.
  4. Identify Your Target Audience.
  5. Create Minimum 5 Gigs.

Secret Tip#1.

One of the most innovative ways to get your first gig is reaching out to sellers who are already successful. They have a lot of business at hand, and struggle to complete their gig on time. If you reach out to them and offer to take away some of their workload, you might land yourself a gig.

This technique is called gig tie-ups.

Secret Tip #2.

When you are trying to get your first order on Fiverr, sell for reviews, not for money. Reviews are an important signal to sellers and to Fiverr that you have delivered quality work before. The more reviews you gather, the easier it is to get more orders.

How long does it take to get first order on Fiverr?

Depending on your gig category, optimization, and competition, it can take anywhere between 7-45 days on an average to make order. It’s quite common to take even longer, but you must work on your gig if you do not get an order or message from a buyer within the first 60 days.

To speed up the process, you can try:

  1. Outreach through buyer requests
  2. Paid promotion
