Hi everyone ! I’m Akshay (Web Developer/Designer), started my journey on fiverr on 28th January, 2017 and there were few ups and downs, but finally on 15th March, 2018 i became Top Rated Selller and have mantained it till date ( Touchwood). And earned a milestone of $30,000 from fiverr and now on 28th May, 2018 bought my very first car Maruti Suzuki Baleno ( P.S I’m still learning to drive).
Fiverr was the best thing happened in my life, i can’t thank enough fiverr to give me a platform where i can earn the most with my skills which wasn’t a case on a 9-5 job. I could never support my family with my regular job, i belong to a middle class family. I remember the day we used to live on rent, had just one scooter, i never thought i will be what i am today and it’s all because of fiverr.
Also, i started my own little startup (devGraphix) short for developers graphics. Hired 2 guys and rented a nice office near my house. Oh and yes i also stopped living on rented house and bought my own house a year ago. I’m seriously very happy ( the reason i am sharing all this with you guys).
So, now the question for the ones who are new here and need a little inspiration…just follow my basic rules/points and you will get success, i gaurantee it
1. Customer Satisfaction and bonding - This is my top rule always, no matter what the cost of the order, whether $5 or $1000, treat all clients equally and give equal importance to all and when you deliver the work ask them if they are satisfied or not, if not give them the quality and satisfaction they need, let your work do the job… don’t ever ask for a 5 star rating from your client. If you do your best and 100%, client will automatically give you a 5 star rating and tip you as well, and that happiness that you get by satisfying ( It’s Nirvana) a client and that tip is a cherry on top.
2. Maintain the quality over quantity - So, i saw lot of people here selling gigs for very low prices just to get orders and ratings and fail to deliver the quality work and i’ve seen 4.7 or 4.8 rating on those people’s gigs and the reason being they focus on quantity rather than quality. If you think you can give 100% quality but you get too many orders or too many requests than you can handle and you end up taking too many orders and fail to deliver on time and bad quality work or client get frustrated because you couldn’t pay attention on their order because you had too many orders, then just do one simple thing, increase your prices, yes you have to… ever wondered why the branded clothes are so costly ? Well they are costly for a reason and that my friend is quality. You can’t sell gigs at cheap prices just to get orders and deliver poor quality work, that’s just not acceptable, it’s very difficult to make a repeat buyer, and once you do…you should mantain a long term relationship with that buyer.
Increasing the prices of your gigs will do 2 things, first it’s gonna get you only those buyers who want a quality work and really wanna work with you and second you’re gonna earn more…so eventually you will have lesser number of orders but of higher values…you will earn more than before and you will also deliver quality work because you have less orders and you can focus on every single order.
3. Maintain above two points - Now that you have learned all this, you should maintain this…everyone can listen to a good speech but following it actually and maintaining it is the key to success. I’ve earned $30K in just 1.5 years. You can too… !!
And when you become a Top Rater Seller, don’t forget how you came this far, you have to keep maintaining that quality…
Keep Selling ! Have a good one
