This is Balubfa12, professional graphic designer with over 9 years experience. I joined fiverr on August, 2011. started with 2 or 3 gigs offering flyer and brochure design services. At that time i was getting 10 orders per month and slowly improved my gigs and sales.
On Jan 2012, i was able to complete 50+ sales and Fiverr Launched GIG EXTRAS which we can increase price offering extra services to the original gig. This helped me a lot and i worked almost 14 to 16 hours a day for almost 6 months. the result was amazing and i got “TOP RATED SELLER” badge as well as featured gig for my best selling flyer design gig.
I was one of the top rated and best graphic designer and competing with other TOP RATED SELLERS. I worked very hard as before and worked brochure design orders which are more than $100. After 2015 August i got severe muscle cramping and low back pain issues because of my body worked tooo hard for more than 4 years and at least 15 hours a day.
i was not able to work fast and handle the orders, and there is no option for me as fiverr income is my only income to survive my life and feed my family.
Most of my orders are like multiple page brochures and catalogs which will take 5 to 7 days to design 1 complete brochure or catalog. there were so many issues with my pc as it was worked continuously for years. some files and source files got corrupted and there is no option for me to work again to deliver on time. so i have requested many mutual cancellations.
Finally i lost my TOS badge on March 2016 and then the tough time in my life started. Now i have hired 2 designers as i am not able to work continuously. I am really working hard with my designers to get back my TOS badge again.
Fiverr gave me everything which i am living now, i purchased my 2 wheeler, all other household items and furniture with my Hard earned Fiverr revenue. I have cleared all my loans.
Thanks FIVERR. You are my everything in my life.
