I found out about Fiverr.com through an article about earning money online… yeah. Before reading this article, I thought that Fiverr was a logo designing tool, in the same way, that Wix is a website designer. That’s what YouTube ads lead me to believe.
Anyway, I didn’t expect it to work at all. I thought that I had no chance of getting a single order! But I signed up anyway. My phone number was rejected by the system several times, so I had to wait another 24 hours and use a different phone number to register. I honestly might have forgotten about this whole Fiverr thing. But I came back, registered myself and set up my gig with some self-made graphics. Basic.
I went to sleep and woke up the next day to a message! It was from a potential buyer but he never responded back. Later on that day, I got a message from someone else. And he ordered my $10 package! I was excited and quickly finished his work. He was very happy and even left a $5 tip.
The next day, I got another $10 order from someone else. I also completed his order and he too left a five-star review. The next day was when things really started taking off. I was now getting a few messages every day and got 4 orders in a day. What followed can only be described as H E L L. I wasn’t expecting to work 6 hours per day.
I realised that while I might be able to complete one or two small orders in a day, and a larger order in three days, this didn’t stick very well when I had two one-day orders, a two-day order and a three-day order. But I pulled through and delivered all of the orders on time. I did not learn my lesson with delivery times. I repeated the same mistake. Twice.
Now I’ve been a seller for just over a month and l have completed 22 orders, got 15 5* reviews and 1 4* review and earned over $330. I hope to further increase this number this month, but also not push myself too hard. Thanks for reading this.
