How do busy Fiverr sellers manage their gig orders when they get a lot?


#1

I am starting to get busy on Fiverr. Finally and not a complaint, but the email client needs more organization tools for gig orders. Do you use Excel or some kind of project management tool?

Yes, I use Excel and treepad to manage my orders.

I have a diary beside me all the time and mark down the due date for all my jobs in red. Then I plan my day the night before in black with those due dates in mind. I work in many different places so its the easiest way to keep me on track. I also have Microsoft Outlook running on my computer everyday and use the calendar on there which sets alarms for me so I’m remind four hours before a deadline (eight hours if the deadline will be overnight) to make sure that it is completed and I haven’t accidentally missed something.

I use an Access database to track fiverr work, same method for my outside work. I keep revenues and expenses in QuickBooks making monthly and annual book-keeping very easy. However, a basic Excel spreadsheet would work, or keep a log in a word document.

Reply to @voiceoverwork: I love MS Access and the fact that you use Quickbooks to track your revenues and expects is a professional way to work.

Great tip - I look at ALL my orders as they come in. In some cases, I need to ask a question or get clarification, so the earlier I look at the order, the sooner I get answers and can therefore keep things moving.

Right now I have 8 family trees to start, what I do is start with the one who has the closest due date and work my way down.

Hey this may be a great idea for a gig, code an application that has features more sophisticated than the sales management tool in Fiverr. But if only Fiverr opens up its API :slight_smile:


#14

How about an app that does the work for me? Too much?


#15

I’m not afraid of many orders…as long as I have orders… but unfortunately that isn’t happening at the moment


#16

I use excel and created alerts using it so I know what orders needs to be done first and so on.


#17

Start on the gigs which are soon due and work on them from there. Inform other buyers you will get to theirs.

Reply to @rodesigners: Yeah, it seems that way for me too, but we’ll both start having our gigs pile up!

When I find myself getting really busy with lots of orders building up in queue, I suspend the gigs that take more time and energy (like my transcriptions), but leave the small easy ones (like tweeting things and writing comments). Then I obviously do any pressing orders, or get a bunch of small ones out of the way to minimize how many open orders I have. The fewer the better, as a clear space lets me work faster and feel more accomplished. After doing all that, I just complete them in order of which is due first.
