I agree that it’s important to know what amount of money do you want to make. What’s big bucks? In my second month I almost hit $1000, the only reason I didn’t was because I paused my gigs the last week to catch up with orders and focus on renovation works in my apartment.
By the way I don’t think it’s a bad thing to pause your gigs from time to time - I’d rather do this, because if you increase delivery time, it averages on your increased delivery time and shows you deliver slow even after you’re back, working hard.
What I’m trying to do is double that Fiverr income by creating very strict processes for my work. I have template answers for most of the questions my clients ask me; I have timed myself to see how much time do I need for a gig and have improved that time from 30 min in the beginning to 17-18 min now. Which is alright, though it could be better.
I also always try to up-sale by offering additional services in my delivery message. Many people take me on my offers and some just come back with whatever else they need done. So that also works.
Overall once you get the money and good reviews rolling in, you have to focus on improving your processes, so that you can handle more and more work and deliver quality.
Hope this helps.
