Fiverr is a cool platform to earn money if you are good at something. It’s an easy to use platform that connects you with millions of customers across the world. the bad thing is that their taxes are pretty high and they are also taxing your tips.
I wanted to tell you a bit of the good things, but also about the bad things. I have explained some bad situations I went through DURING THE YEARS AS A FIVERR FREELANCER right here. My goal is to help you, newcomers to understand the benefits but also the risks.
How did I start?
I started in 2015 when you could’ve posted only $5 gigs as a newcomer. I am a copywriter, so I started with services in this niche. I made around 50 orders of $5 each and I focused more on the quality of my work instead of the money and in a few months I went from a new seller to a level one seller and then in other few months I reached the Level 2.
I am on this level since then.
But how I got my first sales.
Well, I did something that I advise you to do too. I have created gigs that included more services, so people couldn’t resist my offer. For example, on my “Create names for your business”, I was offering 30 options for only $5. On my “Write a creative about Us Page” gig I was offering up to 1000 words content for my customers for only $5. This way I was able to offer great services at a low price and people started reviewing my work. This way, others started seeing my reviews and the number of orders of orders increased. slowly, I have increased my price step by step until I got to the fair price both fro me and the customer.
So, at first, offer great services and more services (surprise your customer with a little extra) so you can create an identity and a portfolio and of course a lot of positive but also real reviews.
Start small, but keep thinking big.
