Last week I got slammed with orders, somehow I managed to scrape through and still get my 's During the process I raised prices by $5 for every 250 words.
After raising the prices I had a day and a half off before repeat customers were coming back and not complaining about the increase, and then more orders. I’m just slightly less than max capacity right now, and a friend wants to place some pretty big orders with me that I’d like to accommodate.
So… I raised prices again in hopes that the orders will slow down some more. Eventually I’ll need a life outside of just fiverr.
now I’m charging about 6 cents per word before fiverr gets their cut. It feels scary, but damn good, because I definitely put a lot more effort into each piece than the current rates justify.
I’m super grateful to fiverr for creating this opportunity for me to learn about freelancing, and giving me a chance to put my life together, financially.
Thanks to all of you in the forum for the education, conversations, and entertainment
