How many people reached out

Person #1: Most people don’t want to risk being the first person to order from an unproven seller. Because of this, I had my closest friend place the first order, wrote him a blog post, and he gave me an excellent review. As I charged $5 and Fiverr takes 20%, I earned $4. He did not wish to be repaid, though I offered multiple times.

What I’ve learned about Fiverr thus far

Everyone messages the seller before ordering, which is extremely helpful. As I am a niche writer both in style and topic, I do not want someone purchasing an engineering article from me for $5. We would both be sorely disappointed. I do state in my description the article should be common knowledge or related to my areas of expertise [freelancing, personal finance, writing, minimalism, etc.], but not everyone reads descriptions thoroughly.
