First off, I have to say I love your work, I think you’ve phenomenal talent and I have bookmarked your page for the day when I want a custom score for a VO demo.
(Bookmarked you a few days back actually)
But I disagree with almost all you posted here…
Why would you do that?
Why would you have a website, then send your own personal traffic to a marketplace?
My website is not going to mention Fiverr at all, it will however mention “buy now” and be loaded with reasons for them to buy direct from me. I waited three years for my domain to drop and be available*, there ain’t no way on earth I’m pointing anyone anywhere other than my own sales channels and payment partners.
*= long game, marathon, not a sprint…
If I can’t mention my own website on fiverr, then I’m not giving them a mention on my own site, or driving any traffic to them when they take such a cut on all sales here.
They’re not having it both ways. My site is my revenue. They can take a cut on what’s theirs but my organic stuff is mine and I ain’t having someone take a slice on that except payment processing partners.
I know there’s an affiliation / fees back thing, but it’s not enough to entice me to route traffic here.
I’ve been on your personal site, I honestly think it’s a waste to point people here when you can potentially convert them under your own power.
I don’t understand why you would get a client via your own site, one you can talk to via whichever means you wish, and have them pay direct into your bank, than funnel them into Fiverr’s realm of restrictions where you no longer set the rules of engagement, and have to wait for funds to clear.
There’s no business logic in that, well none that I can see.
I have no time for social media. None. It’s cancerous for the brain; the family unit and all that is wholesome.
I was going to write a book years ago, had been hit up by a couple of publishing houses and rejected them both when I realised it’s better, and more empowering to be written about, than it is to write, less effort too!
I apply the same theory to social: it’s better to be posted about, than it is to post.
There is only one network for business, the others are for cat pictures and expressing how much you love you mother.
An hour on Linked In is worth more gold than a year on Facebook.
