Just felt I would share (was asked to actually) a chat I had recently with our beloved @writer99025 as I think it might help some others to really get things kickstarted.
For those who don’t know him, Writer is a TRS writer and has been on Fiverr for 4 years. He delivers good work and is extremely professional but has never raised his prices before.

Well Brother Eoin, lightning has struck. Believe it or not. (Writer raised prices for the first time in 4 years…not by much, but small step for man, giant leap for mankind sort of stuff. LOL.)
Then some discussion and chat along with the obligatory mention of Modi
@writer99025 Today - 2:40 PM
Haha, can you tell the folks on Fiverr forum that increasing the prices works? Writer is really mad at himself for taking so long to do it. LOL.
Lol, why, whats happened?
Getting the same number of orders as before, if not more after just 2 days of implementing the change, double price…From now on, I’m gonna put my thinking caps on, like you, for as long as I’m here. Haha. Me
Lol, that’s fantastic!
Not everything I say is rubbish - sometimes I get it right
More chat and then a “see ya later” - no mention of Modi! He is a changed man I tell you!
Some relevant threads for those who are struggling, have less orders than before, are unsure of what their Fiverr future holds or just want to make things happen with their Fiverr sales:
Um, @writer99025 If you’re reading this thread… Good for you, Bhai!
The Forum has been missing your SuperModiji personality.
As soon as the strikes 12 or whatever time on that day, grace us with your presence.
So PMing Writer is allowed? He referred to me as being like his mom once. So I had taken to calling him, my son. I am missing him. Can he still read the Forum? I am gathering information in case I want to be a renegade.
People who are suspended cannot login to the forum so they dont see PMs.
I chat with him in Inbox now and then. I don’t suggest that people initiate that though - I have history with him as a buyer too so we dont affect each other’s response rate.
Just get the fatted calf ready for when he returns.
