    Hey guys,

    So my hard work over at fiverr the last while might be starting to pay off. One of my gigs has just become a "featured" gig on the homepage, and it is now also on the 1st page of recommended for my category!

    should I be expecting shitons of orders soon? it is currently an express 24 hour gig and I am afraid i'll go to sleep in a few mins and then wake up in 7 hours with 100's of orders that i won't be able to complete on time thus giving me bad ratings, it would be pretty shit if being on the front page ruins me..

    does anyone else have experience with this happening? what should i expect?

    OK, just in case anyones wondering,

    Since my gig got on the first page 2 hours ago, it has received: 94k views , 500clicks , 8 orders. It has also landed me a job for an australian company as a social media manager (part time or full time - its my choice) , and a part time job for some american company in kentucky!

    I have changed my gig delivery time, and now im going to sleep. I can't wait to see what delights homepage featured will have produced for me by the morning! :)

    My gig was once featured on homepage of fiverr for a day, and guess what, I received over 100s of request on that day. But it lasted only one day.

    Well, still getting orders, but not from the effect from home page featured, as I am also ranking top 10 from my service category.

    so, just checked my account this morning, got 12 orders over night. I am glad, this is a manageable amount so i can deliver on time and keep receiving my amazing reviews!


    Its crazy, my inbox had 23 new messages overnight, all with requests for gigs.


    I think I have finally found the thing that I can succeed at online.. and I just landed that social media job on the side! 1 month ago I had literally 0$ to pay rent or buy food, both my girlfriend and I lost our jobs, and as it stands a few weeks later I am able to provide for both of us while I sit on the couch on my laptop and drink tea and smoke ganja! :)


    I'm still on the front page so will be expecting a lot more orders for today at least! :)

    What's the gig about? If it something that is not very difficult to do, you could hire somebody for to do some of the work for you for $2.

    Congratz man. Good to read that you made it! I'm hoping for a miracle 2.. Lost my job and can't get another one a.t.m.. My balance is dropping to 0 and it's good to read that people succeed! Gives me a little hope :).

    featured and still received only 8 orders? that's really very strange to be honest.

    This is such a great story. Even if you go off the front page don't stop there man. Scale it. Start a BST here for starters. Good luck :)

    Wow, sounds great! What are you offering?

    As the others are mentioning, scale it up! BST's get a lot of attention + you don't have to pay the crappy fiverr fee ^^.
