Being new to Fiverr, I’ve been on the fence about how realistic it is to believe that I might find success here… there are so many established artists and freelancers of all types here, and probably even more individuals who are willing to consistently work like a dog for peanuts… (no offense intended if this is you… it’s just not me.)
I’ve been here since June, but only really began to put in a good solid effort about 1.5 weeks ago. Six days ago, I learned of the “Buyer Request” feature.
After just 11 offers sent to buyer requests, I’ve achieved the following result:
1 amazing conversation with a potential long-term, regular client for various Virtual Assistant work, which resulted in us agreeing on a fairly compensated 2 week trial period beginning next week.
1 completed transcription project for a client who has hinted at more work to come, left a very generous tip, and a 5-star review with amazing comments that I’m sure will help me a great deal in generating more business for myself.
So to all of you out there who are new, struggling to make that first sale… It will come! Do as I did, and follow the advice of the more experienced sellers, spend time reading in the Academy, be consistent and believe it will happen!.
TL;DR - I asked for tips on the forums; I did the things I was suggested to; it worked; yay.
