    Ok, I have these 4 gigs
    fiverr.JPG

    I have gotten only 1 order and ofc the buyer did not leave me any feedback. I am also confused about the difference between impressions and views. What do they mean?

    I am offering 2x the amount of words people usually offer on Fiverr to get some orders/reviews but people don't care. I surely have better English than some indian or filipino people also (no offence).

    if you have started new, try to get some paid reviews , that should be enough to help you get started.

    the other method would be check for the buyers who have posted reviews on similar gigs and contact them... this method was shared in some thread months ago

    impressions are like how many times your gig has been shown in the suggest gigs section and views are how many clicks you received from those suggestions.
    Yes you might have better english than most Indians or Filipinos but try sharing your gigs on some pages/forums or posts that way you will have better chances.
    And as i can see you have some views but no conversions maybe try making your description stronger gaining the whole attraction of the buyer.
    best of luck!

    I know that feeling when you complete an order but you don't get any feedback.
    Feedback is very important, so when you start new gigs you will do great work just to get feedback - money is not that important.
    But of course, there are people who will order and then just disappear. :(

    I didn't take any paid reviews, but I had few customers who ordered my gig.
    Few of them left a feedback, but some of them just disappeared.

    If you have patience to wait then wait for your first customer.
    Write a high quality description, and explain everything so you may attract their attention.

    If you can't wait pay for few reviews and start getting customers. :D

    +1: always remind the buyers to leave feedback when delivering your work
    i know there's already a built-in feature for this (it wasn't the case when fiverr started), but i still ask them anyway, it won't hurt for sure if you do it politely and at the same time sounding professional

    You're selling the exact same product as everyone else (writing). Why would people choose you over someone with 500+ reviews? Once you can answer that question, you'll have developed a market for your service.

    Review exchange groups operate on Skype, the information can be found from BHW. After that, on every order (a real one...) when delivering remind the customer that a good review would be hugely appreciated.

    You haven't done your homework. I shouldn't be the first one to tell you this, this is your business, look around! You need to be unique if you want to sell things. You have no reviews, these people all have reviews, you're offering a lesser product in a competitive marketplace.

    Get your gig up on the 2 biggest clones SeoClerks and MyCheapJobs. You will get sales. Don't rely on Fiverr for all of your sales

    Just by starting a few high quantity and quality wont bring sales unless you advertise them, get some reviews post in the q/a other sections where users looking for that services and then you can expect something!!

    A lot of people just forget to leave reviews. I'm terribly guilty of this and it's not a reflection of the service i received etc, I've had people email me a week after my order was complete to see if I was happy with the service/product, it's at that point I usually remember to leave a review.

    Out of hundreds upon hundreds of amazon orders i have left feedback for maybe 1/4 of them.

    I wouldn't have guessed there was a large demand for articles in Estonian on Fiverr. Echo the responses that without reviews buyers move on.
