So, I’d been on the first page for all of my gigs (podcast editing and VOs) within a few months of starting on Fiverr. And there I stayed until five months ago, when a series of mishaps in my life derailed my perfect ratings.
Delivered on time tanked first. At one point I was hovering around the 81% mark. Completion rate was around 91%. And even response rate had gone down.
I went from Level 2 to 0.
My gigs went to the last page of every keyword I’d used for them.
I stuck through the difficult times and focused on not missing any more deadlines.
AND NOW. My podcast editing gig is back on the first page! I’m ridiculously happy. I’m still not earning half of what I was making in September, but just seeing the gig make its way back to where it belongs brings me a lot of relief.
I’m up for a level increase this month (unless something goes wrong), and then one more month till Level 2.
After this I’m going to just push on ahead and hope I can get back on track to my income goal as new clients start finding me again.
Thanks for reading!
UPDATE (15th Feb): Just got LEVEL ONE again. Woot!
