I Owe it to Fiverr


#1

Fiverr.com has really changed my life. I created an account on Fiverr in June 2010 while I was wrapping up my sound and music recording program at Recording Arts Canada in Toronto. It was a way for me to apply what I had learned at a great school. It worked like a charm. I got so much experience and wasn’t even realizing what I was building. I loved working with different artists and it helped me while I didn’t have that much money. I was looking for work and got to do some traveling right after graduating. I ended up moving to California where my girlfriend at the time was living. We ended up settling down and getting married a few years later!

Today, I am always busy with Fiverr work. I get orders daily and I love doing what I do. I help artists get their music ready for release. I am a musician myself and know how exciting it is to get to that final step! I am proud to have a total of 2097 positive reviews with a featured gig :slight_smile: Thanks to Fiverr, I have been very fortunate to get married to my beautiful wife, travel and buy a home with her. The freedom Fiverr gives you is really special and if you are just getting on here or have been for a while, the best advice I can give you is to be consistent and treat your customers well. I am happy to be a level 2 seller and extremely excited to reach top rated seller!

A little bit about me: My name is Michael and I’m an audio engineer and singer/songwriter. I studied sound engineering in Toronto. My credits include audio mixing and mastering for feature films, documentaries, and commercials. My music has also earned me the “#1 Most Viewed Musician in Canada” on YouTube!

A great story, really inspiring.

It shows that talented people can really make a living from Fiverr. There are so many people on the forum saying things like “I can been on here for 2 weeks and no orders, please help” and it is refreshing to hear from someone who just went out there and made it happen.

Thanks! I really believe that patience is key here. It may take some optimization on your part - make sure your gigs have clear descriptions, competitive pricing, tags and a video! When I added a video, it made all the difference.I wish you the best :slight_smile:

Good story. You were also fortunate to have been an ‘early bird’ on this platform, coming in when there was virtually no competition and then establishing yourself over time. Congrats.
