I’ve been using custom designed (& automated) Excel spreadsheets since day 1 on Fiverr (which goes way back in early 2010).

In my spreadsheets I keep track of my buyers, all my orders and their corresponding earnings, I made my own charts, made automated statistics about everything, etc.

And I enter all the info of each order in those spreadsheets, since I received my first order on Fiverr - never stopped using Excel, and I don’t see any reason why since it’s fast, it’s a single app hence no memory consumption, and it’s become second nature to me.

P.S. I know, Fiverr already provides most of what I do in my spreadsheets, but those features came too late for me, and it’s easier to continue keeping track of everything inside Excel.

Free :clock1: TIME TRACKING utility/downloadble app:

You can find it by searching for toggl if interested.

Mod Note: Unknown link and app edited from a direct link for safety.

I use a self-hosted project-management and invoicing platform called Pancake. It makes it really easy to make professional invoices, as well as give my clients a little peek into what I am doing.

I also commonly use a piece of project management software depending on the project, especially when I work with other sellers on the same project. No real preference here.

Oh my god man!!! I am doing the same thing from the moment I got the first order. Adding up the information about the work, buyer name, earnings, even their ratings in my excel…!! This is my first priority after i complete a work successfully.

I thought of adding their ratings, too, but it seemed like overkill, so I decided not to. Although I could have used those as testimonials… too late now :smiley:

I provide custom webdesign and wordpress services and I found git version control is just best for me, I keep track of my work, versions and try new things without loosing any of my previous work :+1:

I’ve been using a combination of apps to help with my day to day.

  1. Trello is a great task management app that helps you track anything really.
  2. Jira is a project management app that I’ve recently started using and is probably the greatest I’ve come across to date!
  3. Mint & Wave are nice apps to track expenses and manage your money. Wave doesn’t have the greatest mobile app, but it’s decent. I use the desktop app for now whenever I do need to dive into the tracking part. Mint has a really nice mobile and desktop app!

Pencil and paper. I’m not old school but prefer to see things right in front of me as I have a tendency to forget things if in digital format.

I love Rescue Time to help me focus and look back at where I’ve been spending my time.

I always have todoist open and that is what I use for managing my work on a day to day basis (plus I use it if I outsource bits to others). I use IFTTT to send my fiverr jobs and messages directly to todoist

Dropbox and google drive for large/multiple file transfers

Xero for invoicing/accounting

Here’s what I use:

  • Toggle to track time spent on all my work.
  • Google Spreadsheet integrated with Toggl so I can calculate pay per hour and lots of other information.
  • Trello for managing all my writing tasks.
  • HubSpot CRM for tracking possible future work and contact with clients.
  • Google Docs for all of my writing.
  • FreeAgent for invoicing, expense tracking, and payments.
