In Doers We Trust


#1

Blog post from Fiverr CEO, Micha Kaufman:

In the nearly seven years since Fiverr was launched, we’ve built something special: A community of millions spread across 190 different countries, posting over 10 million Gigs, and buying over 30 million services.

We’ve taken great pride in helping talented people find an outlet for their skills and create personal brands. We’ve helped entrepreneurs build small businesses from nothing, democratizing services that never would have previously been available to so many. And we’ve given countless freelancers the opportunity to pursue their real passions and create a life they want rather than the one their demographic, geographic, or social standing would traditionally dictate.

If you think I sound like a proud parent, you’re right. In fact, I’d often find myself half-jokingly looking up what to expect from a 4, 5, and 6-year-old each of the last few years. So, what should we expect from a 7-year-old?

According to our friends at BabyCenter, “Sevens are delightful to be around. They’ve shed a bit more of the neediness and uncertainty of younger years, and bring enthusiasm and curiosity to everything they do. Sevens tend to ask lots of questions, because they’re keen observers with a big need to know about everything.”

After 10 million Gigs and 30 million transactions, I’d say we’ve shed much of our uncertainty, but our enthusiasm has only grown. We’ve asked a lot of questions, and we know quite a bit about the world the Fiverr community lives in.

It’s a world where all of us are asked to do more with less, working longer hours with more competition for the same opportunity. It’s one that asks each of us to do whatever it takes, because that’s exactly what our businesses need to succeed. We call it the age of the lean entrepreneur.

We’re the ones who get it done. It’s that emotion and identity that’s given us the inspiration behind “In Doers We Trust.” Not only is it a true embodiment of the Fiverr ethos, community, and brand, it’s at the core of what makes so many beyond just our community tick, and I’m excited to share it with all of you.

Doer.

It’s a label that few of us have ever given ourselves, but it expresses so much about what we stand for. It’s a role we should claim proudly, and that includes celebrating the ideals of lean entrepreneurship in both real and digital communities beyond our own. From social hubs like YouTube and Facebook to mass transit commutes in some of the U.S.’s biggest cities, we will salute the attitude and impact doers, freelancers, creators and makers have on the world. Anyone engaging with Fiverr will feel a renewed focus and connection to these ideals, starting here.

Have a look. Poke around. Stand up and be counted. Throw feedback our way. We’ll be listening.

We know success is earned not through talk, but through action, so we created a community of people specializing in getting things done. We believe everyone has a right to succeed, so our marketplace is open and accessible to anyone. We believe in trust and quality, so we built a safe and intuitive product for the passionate people and businesses who strive to be the very best.

We know that doers are at their best when they’re doing, so Fiverr’s experience allows creativity and productivity to grow for freelancers and entrepreneurs, both on the marketplace and in the cities you call home.

My commitment to all of you is to continue building a marketplace that will enable lean entrepreneurship so that all of you, and anyone else who is willing to pour sweat and tears into their work, can thrive in this new economy.

But it’s a two-way street. As a community, don’t ever stop pushing, growing, and evolving. Keep hustling and keep grinding each day to make it more productive than the last.

Simply put:

Wake up every day to get shit done.

We’ll help you do it.

What do you want to DO this year? Tell us in the comments below!

This topic is now a banner. It will appear at the top of every page until it is dismissed by the user.

Ask Mischa when he’s going to do that Q&A he promised us a few Christmasses ago, will you? It was the last time Fiverr did a Breast Cancer charity drive and had that NY HQ party.

This seems like a good place to start! [quote=“mjensen415, post:1, topic:98387”]

Shall we start with the app glitch randomly throwing 4.7 reviews from to sellers and not being able to easily fix this? Is a patch in the works? The recent changes to the feedback system have made this glitch quite a bit more urgent, and I am sure add to an already overworked CS team.

I am sure you will agree that this particular quote does not apply when having to deal with the above issue.

See, I knew it was OK to use the word shit on the forum.

Make my existence slightly less precarious, with or without the help of Fiverr. This is a bit like the Queen’s speech, only with extra corporate ‘come on team, we can do it!’ and that nice little ad spot.

@mjensen415–the banner thing is cool, but it’s a little ugly with the scrolling bar and different color. You should get Discourse to make it more web 2.0 and shit hot.


Delivered Order But Buyer not Marking it completed

That’s Great. And what i want to do this year? Yes i want to improve my gigs in search results. As before i go on vocations few month ago my trifold gig was in first page by typing word “tri fold” but now its gone, even i tried trifold and tri fold with space. Also i noticed that there are only 3 pages with these key words. few month ago there were too many pages and i was on the first page. It shocking for me that what happened with all other trifold gigs including me that have this key work. Should i add another trifold gig. My gig are not getting any clicks by the way or very low.

I’m sure someone will be along to say #fookit but in more measured and careful language that takes great care not to sound like a no.
