Response time counts towards ranking of your gigs, It hell does. If you are a Fiverr pro and you are already getting more orders than you can handle then this article is not for you. But if your profile is relatively new and you are not getting as many orders as you would like to receive then please read on this post How To Reduce Response Time On Fiverr. It will help you out.
Getting orders in a new fiverr account is way too difficult. There is this paradox:
“You need good reviews to start selling BUT you need to start selling to get good reviews”
I know you are already smiling but here is a little disclaimer. My tips here wouldn’t get you a dozen orders in next few hours but will surely work if you show some persistence with them. After all these tips are all white hat.
As they say in military, Communication is the key. Stay connected to your profile 24/7. Yes, even if you have zero orders. Fiverr loves connectivity and values those users who are more active and stay connected. You can however, not do that from your computer or laptop but you have a better option for that.
Download Fiverrs Application for your Smartphone and stay connected to your profile. This helps in following two ways.
1. It tells fiverr how active you are on your profile
2. You will be notified about any activity or any orders and will be able to respond instantly. Fiverr loves sellers with quick response times!
Get Notified On The Go:
If you do not have a smart phone or you do not want to install any more apps in your smartphone, there is another option for you. This will not keep you connected to your profile 24/7 but will notify you about any activity or order instantly via sms. This way you will at least be able to respond quickly to your orders and maintain a shorter response time.
To do that we will use an awesome free service called IFTTT (If This Than That). Go to www.Ifttt.com and register your account. Then follow these simple steps:
Step 1: From the top menu bar click on your user name and then click on “Create” from the drop down.
Step 2: Click on the big blue under lined “this” text and then write “Fiverr” in the text box that says “choose trigger channel”.
Step 3: As you are writing “Fiverr” in the text box, black fiverr logo will appear, click on it. You might be asked to sign in to your fiverr account to connect it to IFTTT.
Step 4: A screen similar to the one below will appear. Click on the first option that says “New Gig Ordered” and after that click on the blue button that says “Create Trigger”.
Step 5: Click on the big blue under lined text that says “that”. Simple, isn’t it, as I said earlier.
Step 6: In the choose channel text box write SMS and click on the last result.
Step 7: Enter your number in the pop up and wait for the pin to arrive in your sms. Type in the pin you receive and click on “Connect”. Wait a while and you will be taken to next step.
Step 8: From the “Choose an action” step choose the only available option that is “send me an SMS”.
Step 9: In next step click on “Create action”
Step 10: And in next step click on “Create Recipe”
Here is what we have done:
We have made a recipe in IFTTT that will do what the above image shows. Decoding the image is simple.
“If my gig is ordered in fiverr then send me a text message on my number”
“If this then that”
You get the idea?
Now stay connected and bring down your response time to minutes.
