I have been active on fiverr for around 2 months but made an account some 4 months back. I started getting orders as soon as I redid my gigs and introduced something which brings in value. I work as a full time architect and have a travel blog. I started working on fiverr to fund my travels. (We are going to Sri Lanka in 2 weeks)
I have seen orders grow and have a few clients who come back whenever they have more work. I think I have worked majorly for 4-5 people and each have ordered around 7-8 gigs. This makes me so happy. In real life profession we value returning clients and today my first ever buyer on Fiverr marked my first 100$ gig as complete.
Yup I made 80$ today from one person and it feels great for someone who started off recently.
My gigs are not something everyone will need everyday. I just wanted to share my tiny story and hope that it helps those who are starting off.
I have had one cancellation till date (a few days ago) When the buyer misunderstood the number of gigs I had asked him to buy and then said he did not find the prices competitive. It is because of the community here that I knew that it was not fair to others if I do the job at the price he wanted.
Thanks all for being a great support and source of information.
Thanks everyone for your good wishes. Lets see where I get with Fiverr… Maybe traveling.
Your gigs do offer the buyer a good value! It’s an excellent offering for the fiverr community. Congrats on your success and welcome!!
Congrats and continued luck in the future.
Also , like @sucantare said - very rare do I get the plain ol’ $5 gig order.
Although I welcome them when I do, because that is ‘quick’ money. However, the gig extras are really something special and allow for some ‘real’ income to be made.
I love watching my ‘funds cleared’ column rise every day.
Looks like you’ll be experiencing that sooner than later, too!
Yay! Best of luck for the future!
Congrats to you! It’s incredible how many buyers will take advantage of Gig Extras. It’s actually become rare for me to get a plain ol’ $5 order these days. If you can make $80/day, that’s incredibly impressive for something you can do in your pajamas!
PS: I also recently had a “good day” http://forum.fiverr.com/discussion/21778/today-was-a-good-day
Congrats!! Good luck!
Reply to @sucantare: read about your good day. Actually took me more than a day to get the order done but it was a good one a nice villa view with interiors. But yeah 80$ a day that would mean a lot in my local currency. 80 is good money as it is.
Congrats to you!! Friend.
awsome good job:)
