Fiverr Forum

As a somewhat experienced level 2 seller, I should know better, But


#1

I’m tempted to ask the same question that I see all the new sellers ask, but instead, I’ll ask this.

If I buy a smart phone ( no I don’t have one :smiley: ) and install the fiverr app, will I be able to respond to messages much faster without having to be tied to my PC?

I’m thinking that with the increased competition, I would probably need to reply to messages much more quickly before the buyer runs off and gets what they need from someone else.


#2

Yes. But take it easy.


#3

You mean take it easy with replying to messages too quickly?


#4

Take the whole Fiverr thing easy…you are getting too stressed.


#5

I agree, but it’s my only source of income.

Before investing in a smartphone just for Fiverr, I’d save that money for living expenses. A mobile device helps a little, but the apps are barely out of beta and I get hit or miss results on my phone.

I would save your money and invest time instead. Put part of your time into finding other income streams whether it’s freelancing, eBay, other e-commerce sites, etc. Invest time in finding any kind of offline work as well.

Fiverr is not a safe single income source unless you have savings you could live on for 6 months to a year.


#7

Exactly…I wanted to tell him that as well.

Thanks for the advice guys :slight_smile:
